So besides weight loss, what else is there to talk about? My job? Sure. I'm still there, it's coming up on 4 months. Do I still like it as much as I did when I started? No. I still like the people, but I did referral coordinating for thirteen years at the hospital, and now I'm doing it again. I was bored before, and I'm bored now. Not only that, but they discovered I can type like a demon, and I got stuck with tons of data entry, which I find tedious. Plus, it hurts my eyes! But I am still grateful to be working and have health insurance, so I'm going to go to work with a smile on my face and joy in my heart. I just didn't go to college and get into debt to do data entry. I want to be a medical coder! I actually started coding again part time in the evenings just to keep my knowledge up. Plus, I'm about to order the study guide materials for ICD-10, which is a huge step in medical coding that I have not taken yet. At first, I was going to see if my new job would pay for my materials, but I decided against it. After getting burned so bad by the hospital, I do not want to sign a contract stating I owe them time for them buying it for me. I wasted three years after I graduated at the hospital trying to get into the coding program and couldn't even get an interview! But I couldn't leave because I had signed a contract. Well, my loyalty is now to myself and my family, not the company. So yeah, I'm going to pay for it myself and then if I can find a coding job that pays more, I have no problem leaving. It sounds cold and crass, but it's not. I have student loans that I have to pay, and I'm still not making enough money to pay them off. It kinda stinks! Let me reiterate...I like my job, I love the people, I love the company. But I love my family and myself more.
So enough of that.
Let's say goodnight to Tequila. I'm about to make myself some lunches for the week, take a shower and give myself a pedicure!
|Good night, sweet puppy. Mommy loves you!|
