I have some good news to share. I took my WI State Real Estate sales exam last night & passed! So excited!! It was a four hour exam, and the testing experience was a wild ride in itself. I guess all of the hard work & studying paid off. Next step is applying for my license, and working on my résumé. Yay!

Adrian & I are going out to celebrate tomorrow night.

Hope you're all having a Christmasy evening!!

In order to get the progams to run correctly you need to manually go in and select your operating system and then download and install all of the "Important" updates. Which, by default includes the Service Pack 1 and Internet Explorer 9 upgrade and you cannot download and install Internet Explorer 9 without downloading and installing the Microsoft Windows Service Pack 1 first.

It's like who's on first, what's on second.... So, to make a long story a little shorter, I previously had my computer automaticly check for updates and it said I had all the updates... there was the problem. Critical updates, yes...but not the Important updates; ugghhh ! They always have to make it so difficult; don't they.... I discovered all of this, via Fort hard knoxs; the hard way and by myself, the IT guys here had no clue...

The other night, I watched The Nightmare before Christmas on the HUB channel.

I have not watched any of the Hallmark channel movies yet or really ever before. However, I did watch a partial one that starred Henry Winkler, it seemed pretty good for the little bit that I watched.

SF, do you have any of the them that you would recommend for me watch or may think that I may like?

Those drain lines HURT when you accidently pull on them; believe me!!! Take care and wish her well. What does she like to do? Read? Crochet? Crossword puzzles? Sew? Listen to music? Let me know and then PM me her address, please!
