Busy with Buying a Home and Preparing for REG

Hello Everyone!

I have been MIA for a couple weeks, but for good reason. I have just been so busy that I have barely had time to breathe!

We decided to try and find a home that will better fit our growing family, and so we have been bogged down with the house hunting process. We have also been trying to balance that with completing projects around our current home to get it ready to rent.

And then we found a house at the end of last week, put in an offer, and it was accepted on Father’s Day! Then came endless phone calls and emails to the bank, insurance companies, etc.

During this entire process I have also made sure to make time for my family and especially my son, while keeping up with my study plan. I am very proud of myself for that! I know I missed the exact plan by a few hours, but given everything that has been going on for the past few weeks, that is pretty good!

I must admit I have been feeling like I am losing some steam after being so busy. I planned to get up and come in early to study before work all week this week and I have been so tired that I did not do that yesterday and today.

But my overall motivation is still very strong. I think the upcoming move has even helped with that. I just want so badly to be done with this entire exam before November so that I can start focusing on our new home and new family member!

Taking REG again is going to be really tough and I think I am dreading it even more than FAR. I just don’t think my brain is wired for taxes and business law! It is just so much blind memorization of facts, rather than understanding of overall concepts. I have done it before and I will do it again, but it is going to be an uphill battle the entire way.

Good luck studying during this off month for testing!
