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!!

Hi Tami! Thank you so much for the colon help with times. And your comment too. I think I saw somewhere that you qualify for the 280 speed range now??? WOW. You're my Court Reporting "Idol" !! LOL

No kidding! Clay hinted to me something about you maybe joining again. I need to take some time off and come visit you guys! Who would have thought court reporting would be so time-consuming;)

I'll talk to Clay & find a day when we're all not too busy so I can come hang out:) I'm sure we'll have TONS to catch up on.

Miss You, too, YoMomma!!

Seriously...how are the rest of us supposed to have ANY self-esteem with women like you around?? I've taken the CRR twice now, and can't seem to get it. And listening to the practice CDs makes me feel even worse. But I was writing fabulous in my courtroom all day! Didn't have to shoot my judge one single dirty look!

Anyway, thanks for the well wishes. Maybe I should ask what you feed your son...think that helps??

Oh, and will we just get re-directed to this new site, or how is that going to work. I just found this site...now you're going to make me change?? Did I tell you I'm taking the CRR in 4 days, have 3,000 pages pending, and just got a request for a civil trial I did last year? (aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhh)!

By the way, I'm all for starting up a "Tami" club. Do we get to drink? :)

Trevor's girlfriend, Persephone, IS a sweetie! The house is empty when she's not here. When they first started dating, I kept my distance because when my other son broke up with his girlfriend after 5+ years, it felt like my heart was ripped out. How crazy is that?!? We do so much as a family and I love to include their girlfriends. Both my boys have also been hurt because they have BIG HEARTS and are often taken advantage of. Can't tell you how many times I've had to bite my tongue!!! OUCH! And for me to keep silent is a feat in itself. :-D

Have a great spooky weekend!

Yeah! It's my page is back to normal...kinda like when I have car problems, take it to the mechanic and the darn 5,000 lb (or whatever a car weighs) decides to act normal. Spend several hundred dollars to find out it's okay, drive it off the lot and the next day acts up again! ;-)

BTW ~ I saw your post to Trevor...and all I have to say is, "I RESEMBLE THAT REMARK!"

DM out...

Hi Tami ~ My CSR page is all whacky. I can't figure out how to get to the MSC. Everything is coming up on my page except for the groups I'm a member of. The little club "icons" are missing. Do you have any suggestions?
At 14:22 on October 28, 2009, Trevor McCutchen said…
Thanks, Tami! Well, I just took the English portion this morning, and I feel very good about it. I'm excited that I'm getting so close to becoming a working reporter!! My mom told me how to check early online if I passed, so I'll be sure to check that out. Thanks for the tip! :-)

btw, my mom and I are planning on going to the February test for my mom's CSR Exam in LA and thought it would be cool if you happened to make an appearance! :-P
