I'm having a BABY!!

Ok, so I'm not "physically" having a baby.
My niece, Jessica and her husband Chris are having a baby. So, in a way, I am having a baby. I will be a "Great" Aunt. Am I even old enough to be a great Aunt? I think not!. Last week we found out "we're" having a girl.
My sister, Shana and I have been talking about names - Middle names. (i could care less what the first name is) I told Shana that Jessica should go with "LaVonne". She said Jessica would never name her "LaVonne" as her sister, Abigail already has the name "LaVonne". I then stated "that I would pay Jessica to name her "LaVonne". Shana came back with "No, No, No (while shaking her head) I'll pay her not too name her "LaVonne" to which I came back with "I have much more money then you". End of conversations.

Tour de France

Its one of my favorite times of the year. Every July marks the start and finish of the Tour de France. I love to watch the tour. I really look forward to getting up at 5:30am to watch 2 hours of the tour before heading out the door to work. Thanks heavens for TiVo. I have always enjoyed riding bikes. I've been into cycling since highschool. Words can't express how excited I was to ride a bike on my mission. (sorry companions for riding to fast and leaving you behind) One of my goals is to go to France during the Tour and seeing several of the stages. One day I'll be there.

I'm Back

My main reason for not blogging for the last month and a half is because I've been studying for my license. No, not my driver's license. That's good till the year 2030. I have been studying for my Insurance license. It's for my job, so it's not by choice. In order to work at LeBaron and Carroll, LLC I have to be licensed even if I don't sell personal or commercial Insurance. I have so much more to studying before I can even think of taking the test. I took what, I like to say was a "pre-test" back in November. It's multiple choice questions only. The questions are really tricky. You have to read the questions very carefully. There are 4 possible answers and they are all similar. The test is set to a timer. I have 2 hours to answer 230 questions. It doesn't help to have the timer in the upper left hand corner of the computer screen. Back in November I spent more time looking at the timer then reading the questions. I'm not stressing out..yet. Who am I kidding..I am very Stressed out!! For the next 3 days while at work I plan on spending 8 hours studying. My boss is at scout camp this week, so it's a good time to studying.
