I passed the evil test!!! I could not believe my eyes. When I took the test, they said that it would take 4 to 6 weeks to get your results in the mail, but you could get them online as soon as they became official. By Saturday, I just couldn't take it anymore. The anxiety was going to kill me. And if I didn't passed, I'd have to sign up real soon to take it again.

I think my heart actually stopped for about ten seconds as I was logging on. Then when the score sheet opened, you have to scroll down to see the actual score. My hand wouldn't let me scroll down. I think my thought process was: "If I don't see it, it doesn't exist!" Finally, I got up the courage to look...176 out of 200!!!! Happy dancing and screaming sum up the next ten minutes. :)

The Roots May Be Brown...

...but I have got to be a true blond. I had one of those moments that have to be straight out of a dumb blond joke book. Almost three weeks ago I got all my tax stuff ready and mailed it in. I even put extra postage on the one that I was worried was too thick. I went off on Spring Break feeling great about getting everything done ahead of time. I got back this week and got back to regular life. This morning, I grabbed my check-book to get books from our schools book order. I opened it up to write my check and there was my check for my state taxes!!! Keep in mind today is April 14th.

The words "dumb blond" can't even begin to explain how stupid I felt.

And not to worry; I took the check to the tax office and they said it happens every year.
