First, I passed the Illinois Life insurance and Illinois Accident/Health Insurance producer exams!! That means I have just one hurdle left, applying for my license, before I’m a producer with the state of Illinois.
Now, I know it has been forever since I last posted, and I’m sorry. Please forgive me and over look this indiscretion. That being said, I have been busy! From studying for and taking the producer test, to packing the office and sending out emails for my boss on renewals. From, spending time with the family (and boyfriend!!) to spending time working on my own business, this month has been full!
Speaking of my own business. I had an email requesting a shirt. Now, I had just taken down my etsy site and come to terms with the fact that I might not ever sell anything beyond family. I suppose one should never give up on themselves though. I quoted a price for the shirt, it was accepted and I’m currently in the process of completing it :).
As for spending time with family and the boyfriend. I convinced the boyfriend to go with me to my Grandma Jackson’s on Labor day. I was not entirely sure what to expect or how much family would be there, but I gave him as much of a heads up as I could knowing what the make-up is usually like on holidays (or use to be as it seems I can never quite make it there on holidays anymore). It was a pleasant surprise when the boyfriend fit right in! no complaining, no wanting to leave early, no scared look on his face. He even wondered off and got to talking with one of my uncles on his own. In fact, after words he even said it reminded him of his own family. 🙂 I think he’s a keeper folks. Oh, and the family enjoyed having him there as well, I think?
This month is not over yet, and it is only projected to get busier. In exactly one week from tomorrow the boyfriend and I will be leaving on vacation! We are headed to Pennsylvania, the real purpose is the toy show they have, but I have made a secondary purpose of seeing Hershey Pennsylvania a priority as well ;). Any advice on where to get quick bites to eat on the way to Pennsylvania from Illinois?????
Ah well, Time to get back to packing the office up, we move the office on Friday!!!
Thanks for being patient and waiting for the next blog entry. I enjoy being able to write out what I’m doing, even if no one reads it;).
