Gray and wet

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

It was one of those wet spring days–damp and chilly.

I spent the day with chores and fun–cleaned both bathrooms (anyone else HATE that job?) and then a trip to Barnes and Noble (Kimm got a real estate book, no books for me, and we both enjoyed a Raspberry Mocha Frappacino).

Now it’s time to snuggle on the couch with Izzy-bear 🙂

Watch out world…here she comes!

Some VERY exciting news today!

Kimm passed the real estate license exam!!

She is an official real estate agent!!!!!

Wow, huh?

I haven’t even mentioned this on the blog because I didn’t want to say anything until after she was legit!

Earlier this year, she decided to go for it.  After the school she had been attending for accounting revamped their program, making her have to add several more classes, she decided to stop going for that and really wasn’t sure what to do.  I advised her to think about what she really loved, and try to make a career of it.  And once she did that, it was easy.  She LOVES to look up houses online, she LOVES to watch HGTV, and she LOVES to help people with finding a house (informally with our house hunting experience).  Now she’ll be able to do all that and make money at the same time 🙂

It was a struggle–6 weeks of getting up early for classes and then studying for the exam–but SHE DID IT!

The best news is that she already has two places that are interested in hiring her!!  So now she’ll have to make that decision and get her first year of experience.

It’s going to be QUITE the adventure!

I am SO PROUD of her!!!!
