I am only partway through the first chapter and feel as if I am learning so much. It explains a subject then gives you sample problems. It also has detailed answers so you can see how the answer is what is. This book is for someone who has a background in accounting, not for a first timer.

After much thinking and debating, I have made a decision as to where I will call home. And I, know that this is the state's older license plate but it was the only blank one I could find so that I could "personalize" it. So.................................
staying in LOUISIANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Although the area I am in right now is growing on me, I am leaning more towards Houma/New Orleans/Slidell areas. I don't know if I could live in such an isolated area such as where I am currently. I know I said my dream location is Corpus Christi, but I am close enough. The way I figure it, I am only 9 - 10 hours from there. That's easily a weekend get-away or vacation. So, I am content with naming Louisiana as my new home. Now, on to looking for a place to rent.

This is a picture I took from my hotel balcony in 2006. This is Corpus Christi Bay. Believe it or not, my hotel was a $60/night Super 8 and we had this awesome view!
As for Louisiana, I am in the most boring town in the whole state! There is nothing here and I mean NOTHING! I saw a lawn decorated for Christmas with a crab and shrimp. And a sign advertising ALLIGATOR SAUSAGE! WTF is that?? Never mind, I really do not want to know!
So, here's to hoping that I soon am back in paradise. Or what my version of paradise is........... Although, Louisiana wasn't that bad, until I got out of New Orleans and realized that my home for the next 3 months is in a swamp!

I have narrowed it down to 4 places I would live and possibility of another. The possible one depends on how I like Louisiana when I get there. The other 4 in order of preference are Corpus Christi, TX; Charleston, SC; Elizabethtown, NC; and Mooresville, NC. So one of these plates could be in my future:
I also saw a few good movies the last few days: The Comebacks (ok, wasn't good good but it was good enough for a laugh); http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0790804/, 27 Dresses (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0988595/), Hairspray (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0427327/), and Charlie Wilson's War (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0472062/).
On the down side, we never got to finish what we wanted done in Washington, DC. I am hoping to go back there, but more along the lines of Spring time. It was rather chilly to be walking around the city with the babies. I still had about a week's worth of stuff left to do. Hopefully, soon....
I have 25 quizzes as well as an Extra Credit assignment due on Thursday for my Business Law I class. Talk about procrastination. I have done about 10 quizzes and have not even begun my EC assignment. I guess I really need to be doing that right now. So, off I go.........
