    Minimum two years as I have a contract job (unless I mess up and get fired) and then I'll decide what to do then.

    I haven't updated my journal in a long time but things are a bit rocky right now.

    In about 2 hours, I take one of the biggest tests of my life and I have to pass it or that's over $300 down the toilet. I got up and read my emails and found out that my lessee has decided Sky is too much for her and so it's going to be a lot harder to pay off bills as my job still hasn't started yet. And then I go log onto my bank and discover that my bank moved all my bill-paying money into somewhere I can't touch? And I just sent out a bunch of checks and they're probably going to bounce because of their error. It's ridiculous.

    I just want to pass this test, and get that email saying "oh hey, you can work now" so I can start earning money and building my future.

    I'll be selling some horse related things all in XL, O/S, and 84" and some general farm stuff sometime in the future to tie up loose ends.

    When it rains, it sure does pour... and the clock keeps on ticking.

    Gotta stay strong.

    Dang Sky, you've got a lot coming at you right now.

    Hang in there girl, it's all part of the process.

    You see, I worked overseas myself in my younger years.

    Looking back on it, I wouldn't want to do it again.

    Long story, but now, I'd have a hard time leaving my horse....and my wife.

    Thanks gunslinger, means a lot to have some support.

    I know I can pass this test! Life always throws me curve balls but that's what makes it so exciting.

    I am counting down the days when I get back to him, though.

    So, I guess the key is to learn to hit curve balls!

    Yes, you can pass this test.

    That said, I hold several professional certifications and I've never passed one on the first try.

    If, by chance, you don't pass, as soon as you get in your car, write down every question you can remember, right now!

    My co-worker, on the other hand, almost always passes on the first try.

    I think I don't take tests very well.

    They are rather nu-nerveing though, aren't they?

    Very un-nerving. I am a horrible test taker despite how hard I work. I prefer showing than picking out from my brain. Even so I didn't pass this test.. but at least I know what to expect. I'll get it next time

    Today, honestly, has been a negative day all around for each member of my family. But at least tomorrow is a holiday and we can go do something to pick up our spirits. Mayyy have a lady interested in leasing Sky.. crossing fingers!

    Here's an updated picture of Sky. I think he looks amazing weight wise and his ewe-neck is slowly disappearing and in its place a nice start of a topline :)

    Now you've seen the test, study what you know you missed, and reschedule as soon as possible. Waiting lets your memory fade.

    No shame in not passing, I took one test five times before I passed it on the sixth try.

    The shame is in quitting instead of passing.

    Never give up!

    Urgh..

    4/26/12

    I woke up, checked mail.. and there might have been some people I trusted putting their friends on my horse. And that just makes me so mad.. because I didn't give them permission, Sky isn't some pony ride at a fair... it just sucks that I trusted these people and they did that.

    But at least Sky's alright.. I have a test tomorrow so I have some studying to do today. I should have studied yesterday but I just wanted one day to myself. So got quite a lot to revise before the big day, let's hope I pass.

    Had someone take interest in leasing Sky, let's see what happens..

    Yes, well, just be thankful sky is being taken care of, and someone is riding him.

    Your 10,000 miles away, not a whole lot you can do IMO.
