I also do your laundry.

Fee: FREE!!!!!!

Looking for clients who can look me in the eye and melt my heart. You also need to be a conscientious hard worker who makes me sooooo proud.

It helps if you've come from my womb, but that's not a deal breaker. :)

LOL!!! Thanks for the number, Tami. It's funny how you mentioned that. I keep going to that site every day and searching for my name hoping a "MCCUTCHEN, TREVOR" will appear! haha.

Ahhh, yes. The CRR...well, let me just say that after the test on Saturday, I took a break from being a court reporter for a couple of days. Didn't look at my machine and didn't even break out my laptop. Thus, the being offline for so long.

I must say this. This the third time I've taken this test. The first time I was in a lot of physical pain at the time. I was having undiagnosed back issues (apparently doctors haven't gotten our job descriptions yet. Since our job is sedentary and I'm on the thin side, why the heck would I have any back, neck or shoulder problems??) and some serious neck and shoulder pain. Much better now.

The second time I took it, it was very easy...so easy I looked at my laptop and saw that I had mis-stroked and...tripped. After that I was so angry at myself I just wanted it to be over. I felt fairly confident even then. I'm a clean writer, but a biiiigggg dropper.

On Saturday, I've been so busy trying to implement so many briefs and styles to shortcut my writing, that I now have too much hesitation. I need to get my speed back up. The most positive thing I can say about this test is that I felt I did as well as the last one, and this one was much more difficult. So even though I'm sure I didn't pass, I feel that there has been progress. And for now, that's good enough.

Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. Fortunately I am surrounded by some great staff reporters here at my courthouse. There was lots of cheering going on beforehand, and then as many 'atta boys afterwards.

Now I am going to check out Mark's site and learn some new techniques. I'm just not sure I can do all words in a single stroke. I stack enough as it is. :)

By the way, how did your son feel about the test? I'd be curious to know his thoughts on the subject as well.

*sigh* *sniff* *sniff*

How do you know just the right thing to make a girl feel better?? Thank you so much for the kind words. I refuse to let this get me down. The reality is I have waayyy too much on my plate, but it's not going to change for several more years. I just gotta keep plugging away and hope for the best. All I can do I what I can do, you know, and try not to let it overwhelm me. I rarely succeed with that, the not being overwhelmed, that is!

I've put it behind me. Only looking ahead. 2010 is my year, lol!!
