Day 6: Thursday Thirteen #19



THIRTEEN THINGS I'VE DONE SINCE I LAST POSTED A THURSDAY 13


Okay, I know it has been a while since I last posted one of these, but October was crazy busy. I know, it is no excuse to shun blogging, but, well, it was on my to-do list, if that counts for anything! So, without further ado (and in no particular chronological order)...

1. I voted

2. I took the national written exam (and passed)

3. I took the national machine exam (and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be)

4. I passed the state exam. Yeah, you remember the one I whined heartily about... the trip to Austin... That one. Well, 43 people took the exam and 12 passed. See, I still stand by my opinion that it was a bad test. But, I passed it. Yippy!!!!

5. I have been to Houston.

6. My sister came to town

7. I've gotten over a nasty cold/allergies

8. I have scooped the litter box 1,340,234 times (it seems)

9. I have gone back to work at the Photo Job so I get to play with babies of complete strangers and coo at them and talk to them and all without mothers yanking the baby away from me and walking quickly in the other direction from the crazy redheaded woman.

10. I have planted flowers (mums) in my planters for fall

11. Most of those flowers have now died because we had a 14 hour cold snap and it got below freezing and the planters are up in the air unprotected and I didn't think to bring them to a warmer spot.

12. I have agreed to walk a 5K on Thanksgiving day in Ft. Worth (The Turkey Trot)

13. Did I mention that I passed my state exam?

I managed to get a TT up this week, but probably shouldn't have taken the time as I am swamped. Why am I still online?

Yippee! Glad to hear you passed the exam. The pass percentage would indicate that it wasn't a very well written exam.
