Well, what a week it has been. My friend Debra and I traveled to Key West on Saturday and back on Tuesday. We had a lot of fun in the sun, drank a few too many drinks, toured the town, shopped ’til we dropped, and came home in one piece. On Sunday, I thought it would be fun to lay in the hammocks and relax a bit. Well, the hammock I chose was strung a bit too tight and I flipped out of it, 3 times! Twice trying to get into the hammock and once trying to get out. A sight to be seen I am sure. Afterwards, my neck was a bit sore but I was otherwise fine until I got home. When I took my suitcase out of the trunk of my car, my back grabbed and it has been sore every since. A couple of visits to the chiropractor and I am feeling much better but I was so sore on Wednesday and Thursday. Glad that is over.
I also marked a few things off of my to-do list this week. I was able to apply for my Kansas driver’s license and get my Kansas license plates this week. I am officially a Kansas resident now. I was also able to work with my academic advisor to get all of my classes mapped out so I know I can get each classes into the one year time frame I have allowed myself for this endeavor. It is not a perfect class schedule, but it will work. I was worried there would be a class that wouldn’t be offered during the 12 months and I would need to take an extra session to complete my MBA. As it stands right now, I am good to go on the one year plan! I also have Forensic Accounting in my last session which is ideal as I will be studying for the CFE right after that session so I can take that exam as soon as possible after I have my MBA. It is all coming together nicely.
I have started reading and doing some homework for my Managerial Accounting class. The reality of the work is starting to set in a bit…nothing I cannot handle…but it is going to be a lot of work.
Next week is my first official week of classes, both online and on campus. Ready, set, here we go!
