It's Official..I am a Total Nutjob.

I have been waiting waiting waiting..then waiting some more to get confirmation from the KSBSRB, the President, Congress, God, Buddah, and other various important figures since MAY 15 saying that I am approved to take the NCMHCE. (Test I have to take for my clinical licesnse.) FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY today I got the last of the confirmations needed and was given access to the site where I sign up for my test date. I will be taking the exam on July 6 at 9AM. That is just about 9 days away.

(Excuse me, but I need to recover from my fainting spell/panic attack)

Wanna know what is 10 days away???

Our NY vacation.

Ayup. I am taking the test the day before we leave for vacation. There are reasons why I chose to do this.

I can't seem to recall any of them now however.....

I have been preparing for the exam since the first of the month, for once having a positive outlook that things would go my way. However I have backed off the studying over the past week because I had begun to despair that I was going to hear back from the NBCC (national board for certified counselors) in time to register for the July exam.

Oy vey.

I think it is safe to say that by the time next weekend comes around I will be a "Hot Mess" as the kids are saying these days.

I think preparing for a major test, getting ready for my first vacation away from my children, dealing with all that is involved in getting work stuff settled so that I can be gone for a week, equals the perfect recipe for the "hot mess."

I see a crying, anxiety ridden meltdown in my near future.

Now where did I put that positive outlook? I know I left it around here somewhere.....

Give me a call when you're in town (785-220-2344) if you want to hang out- i could take you to my favorite pizza place- the best pizza in brooklyn (IMHO) Anna Marie's in williamsburg --

Oooh! Ooohh! I wanna do that!!! It is on my list!!!

Missy said...

MMMmMmmmmm pizza!! I am ALWAYS up for that and we would absolutely love to hang out. I gotta remember to get all these numbers written down before we go!

Dan G said...

Nick's in Forest Hills can kick any pizza place's ass in the entire city. That's right. I'm throwing down the gauntlet, Jay. Queens vs. Brooklyn!

Best part is we all win this battle.

I am willing to make the sacrifices necessary to reach consensus on this very important pizza debate.

I am going to have to walk EVERYWHERE we go next week I have a feeling. No cabs. But maybe a subway ride, just cause. Been a looong time since I have done any kind of public transportation. Almost 12 years to be exact.

Have I mentioned how excited I am about this trip? Because I am. Very.
