Where's Breezy?

I wish I could capture the look of shock and awe on your faces as I pop up in your reader or on your "Next" button.  Wait, what?  You didn't even notice that I haven't posted in over a month.  Whatevs.

Don't call it a comeback.  I've been here for years....

Anyway, let me fill you beezies in on where I have been lately.  I know you think I was probably off doing something super fun and fantastic, but unfortunately that's not the case.  Most of you know that I started a pretty intense workout schedule back at the end of August, which was definitely taking up a lot of time, but I was still able to blog about it.  But then I decided to take a Basic Income Tax Preparation course through H&R Block.

I know, you are probably like, "Wait, I thought you said you weren't off doing something super fun and fantastic?  That sounds AMAZING!"

Well, if that was the only thing I had going on in my life, which luckily it is not, it probably wouldn't have been so bad.  But since I also work a 40 hour week and then was working out 6 days a week, it was a little cray-cray for my liking.  Notice I said I was working out 6 days a week.  And no, I haven't finished the workout program....yet.

Apparently the only class they offered at Block that worked around my day job was the accelerated course.  7 weeks of classes on T/Th evenings from 6-9pm and Sat/Sun mornigns from 9am-Noon.  Oh, and you know that shiz in college when teachers tell you that for every hour of class you should have an hour of homework?  Pretty sure that never happened...until NOW.  Seriously, I have never been such a studious person.  I have been diligent in reading every chapter and doing all the exercises and haven't missed a class except the first one for my friend's wedding.

Needless to say, about halfway through the class I had a mini-meltdown and realized I couldn't do it all and that Phase 3 of my workout schedule would have to wait until class ends.  That day is finally on the horizon.  We have our final this Saturday and I have senioritis like a mofo.  I just want to get it over with and get the heck out of town.

Oh yeah, my friend sent me a text a couple of weeks ago asking what I was doing on the 19th because she has a hotel room in Tahoe.  I told her, "I have my final in the morning, but that would be an awesome way to celebrate that it's all over!"  So now I get to go have a girls' overnight in Tahoe to celebrate the accomplishement of being done with this class.

The whole thought behind taking the class was being able to do seasonal part-time tax preparation with H&R Block.  I had my interview with them last week and will probably hear from them after they get my stellar results from the final.  I am kind of thinking long-term with this whole thing if it all works out.  Maybe someday we have a child and I want to stay home, but can do this part-time/seasonally and by then I will be doing more involved returns which will bring in more money.  We shall see.  It's also something I can do later in retirement or something too.

So, anywhooooo, that's why I fell off the face of blog-land and I am hoping to get more wedding pics and honeymoon recaps up on the blog in the coming weeks/months (oh yeah, remember when I got married?).

Thanks for sticking around!
