*flails wildly then faceplants on the floor*
Those who have kept track and rooting for me, you can finally cheer. I passed the state exam for Life/Accident and Health products portion of the state licensing exam. It almost wasn’t going to happen due to technical issues with the computer I was on.
Wasn’t anything I did. Nope, not this time. 😉 The computer was acting up before I got there. They had to reboot it four times before I could take the test. The crazy thing would freeze at the end of the sample test (I swear it’s to make sure people understand what country they’re in with all the America centric questions) and not let me continue. The final reboot let me complete the practice and got me all the way through to the end and tallied my score.
Maybe I did threaten to bring a tech-god to fix the problem or IT was going to be there after I was done to upgrade and fix the problem, I don’t know, but it did work.
It’s done. Finally done! I won’t have to worry about it again unless the license lapses for any reason. From here on out, it will be continuing education to keep me up to date on changes made in the insurance code and ethics courses to prove I won’t commit fraud or something to that matter. That will only be 24 hours per year, so no worries.
Due to studying this week, and other things going on, I didn’t do any writing. Not all was distractions with Facebook, I promise, though some were along that line. There was review and extra studying on the sections I needed more focus, such as Medicare and Long-term Care policies.
This means I have nothing new to give on Black Friday 2 nor anything to report on my Camp Nano novel. Both of those needed to be set aside for the purpose of passing the most pain in the neck test I have ever taken. At least it did pay off and I can put some effort into both of the projects when I’m not working or training.
Which means I have this weekend free after the shopping is done and Monday between doctor appointments for Colin and Dave.
That reminds me, keep Dave in your thoughts, he is starting down the road toward gastric surgery to help him get rid of his excess weight and the lymphedema lump on his inner thigh. Monday, he consults with his doctor about which procedure he’ll recommend then starting the string of tests which have to be done before the operation date. One way, or another, we will get this done; even if it means I have to pay for incredible insurance which will cover the surgery, tests, and post-op visits.
Thankfully, we already know, he won’t be down for more than a day or two and be on a protein shake diet for a few months. But, it will end his diabetes almost immediately and start straightening out other weight related issues. This also means that I’ll be forced to diet, too. But this is a good thing. I need to lose about half my body weight to be within the target range for my height and build.
Okay, I rambled too much.
I hope everyone had a safe and fun-filled 4th of July.
