I am preparing for the practice exam now, which was included with the course. I do that over the Internet. It is 4 hours long, and so I'll need a quiet house. When I complete that, it'll tell me what areas I need to work on, and I have to print up a certificate when I complete it. Then, I start to prepare for the actual exam. I schedule that when I'm ready, and it's $100 to take the test. Luckily for me, there's an approved testing facility here in town, about 10 minutes from our place. There's only three in the state. I take my certificate, and calculator when I'm ready. The course itself has costed about $750 so far, so not too bad. But, once I pass the test & start up my business, that's when it gets expensive.

Thanks!
I'm doing better with them, but some are still confusing. They aren't explained very well, and the instructors & friends who have taken the course say they try to trick you. :/

It is a pill that you put under your tongue and let it "melt." He had not heard of it and assumed his doctor had not either since she did not prescribe it for him. He felt better almost immediately and could not thank me enough. He told his mom about someone helping him out and she told him to be sure and get the name of the medication. I gave him the remaining pills I had. When I saw him at the awards banquet Saturday night, he looked so much better and told me that he could not believe how good he felt. I told him that I felt good just being able to help him! He said his first job on Monday is to call his doctor and order some of the pills.
That was very thoughtful of you, and I can tell how much he appreciated it. God bless you! Xo

I had planned on replying to some post on here but looking at the clock I don't have time! Ahhh!

We were swamped yesterday at work! Everyone was out gardening and buying up tons of plants, seeds, fertilizer and more. We also had those coming in to buy up chicks, ducks and geese. We finally got the baby geese in and they are just wayyyyyyyyyyy too adorable! I love the way they get very excited when they see someone and "talk" to you! I end up giving them all hugs!

No matter how busy we get at work it goes very smoothly. We just have the best customers with lots of patience, the best boss, owner and employees. All of us employees stay really happy through it all, cut up with each other and have good conversation with those who come in to shop. I get completely worn out by the end of the day but love working there!

Thanks for everyone's well wishes to my mom. I really admire my mom! She will be 71 in June and seriously has way more energy than I do. I am so jealous!!! She did get out yesterday because she was bouncing off the walls with energy. I keep working very hard to exercise often, ride my bike, do yoga, eat healthy (most of the time) and still don't have the energy she has. I am always complaining I'm tired and she never seems to be tired! As I always say, "When I grow up I want to be just like my mommy"!

Look at the little goslings! They are just so cute. (not taken from work, just a googled image). I will try to take some pictures of our critters next time I am in.

Christmasstar, I told my mom about resting that ankle but she wouldn't listen said she was just fine. I am hoping she gets a good report from the doctor and she didn't cause anymore harm to her ankle running around yesterday! Thanks for your advice anyway but she won't listen! Lol!
