How goes it today? Did yesterday go well too? If the other person got a job, does that mean you are higher up as a potential hire???

Hi ladies,
Feelin' good!
Slower day at the externship today.
Couple of crazy patients
One 21 y/o had a panic attack, so bad the paramedics had to be called
Another woman (26 y/o) on 20 different meds, didn't want to leave until she had a holter monitor and meds for LOW BLOOD pressure! LOL Telling the doctor how to treat her. These two took up alot of time making 3 other patients wait a long time.
I won't be so impatient next time I'm waiting in the docs office.
The hemorrhoid doc asked me what pay I wanted. I said 14.00/hr. Why not, the office is in rich area of town
It pays 11.00/hr, had every other Friday off and little responsibility.
They outsource the billing/payroll etc.
All I would do is set appts and stand next to the doc when she zaps hemorrhoids. It's all they do all day. Nothing else.'
The externship is stressful, but I'm doing various tests, using the electronic medical record to check patients in, do new patient histories, learning about a vast array of medications.......wish I could have started this two months ago after school.
Stress wise, the hemorrhoid place would probably be ideal for me but I won't learn much of anything. And every other Friday off would be so sweet!
Should I call back and stress that the pay is okay?
I really want the experience at where I'm at now.
I got two other messages for interviews I'll have to return tomorrow.
Talked to one woman today in Ofallon MO. It's a dermatology office and the doctor is tired of dealing with twentysomething Medical assistants and their shenanigans. I could probably get it, but it's about 90 miles round trip.
I have a purpose and focus now and it feels so good.
When I have too much time by myself, as you've seen....well....
weighed 143.8 this morn.
Staying away from the BIG Russell Stover, sugar free marshmallow bunnies...man they are so good, better than the sugared. For 3 days I was on a roll with those things. Rollin' in the chocolate bunnies
Be gone you bunnies!!!
Bad bunny bad

Some "breaded" zucchini I made tonight:

Izzy - I would say if you can avoid the drive, DO IT! SOunds like you have a lot of prospects on the horizon! How exciting. Starting something new always is. Me, I've been at my job for 15 years now. Thankfully, each day is something new/different/challenging/a MESS sometimes! I am so happy for you. Things are TURNING AROUND BABY!!!!!!!!!

Went out to eat last night with my old friend Charlie, and it wasn't pretty. Oh well, better today.
Thursday I was really doing badly at the externship (3 hours of sleep the night before). Luckily left at 1.30 for an interview for a medical secretary position.
I spoke with Karen about an hour yesterday afternoon at the interview.
We really hit it off.
Right before the interview I listened to a message on my phone that made me believe I had the hemorrhoid clinic job.
So I really didn't push my enthusiasm during the interview.
It pays between 14.00 and 15.00 an hour and I would be sitting most of the day which would be nice for my joints.
Didn't even get out of my pajamas til 5pm tonight, was sick to my stomach and didn't fall asleep til 3am last night.
Should have followed up on the secretary interview. She said she was making her decision today.
I found out the hemorrhoid clinic wants me to come in and work on Wednesday morning with the doctor for 4 hours (paid) to see it its a good fit.
There are 6 other people trying out for the job.
The low responsibility appeals to me at this point because of the stress of this apt. manager job.
The low pay doesn't, but medical insurance is free which is a big thing.
Having every other Friday off is a big plus also.
But I am competing against 6 other MA's.
If I would have called the place from yesterday to let her know if I was interested...it would have helped...but I wanted to know about the hem. clinic first. Hmmm decisions decisions
I may lose both.
But Monica, you are right, the winds are a changing..somethings going to happen.
I know I can't handle the stress of the place where I am externship-ing and you have to work every other Saturday. But after this week, they probably think I'm too slow anyway. Will go back Monday and if they still want me only work a couple days next week.

Hi ladies,
He is a coordinator for the medical students at depere hospital. Also retired from the military (he's 52 - I'm a cougar! lol)
He came over last night and we made a low carb dinner and cabernet and had fun! LOL
He's very cuddly. He's 6 ft, slim, wears wire rim glasses, has a crew cut.
I did the working interview at the hemorrhoid clinic today, but I woke at 3am and couldn't fall back asleep. My sleeping has been a mess again.
Don't think I did very well. Oh well.
Dreading going back to the externship tomorrow. It's a mess there. Really toxic.
I am doing a mock jury thing for a focus group next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and will be paid 500.00 for it! It's from 7.30 am to 6pm each night.
Applied for a project administrator for MoDOT (missouri dept of transportation) it's what i used to do. what I used to do is sounding better and better each day. lol

Izzy, he sounds like a wonderful MAN! I can't wait to learn more about him! You need to find what works best for you work-wise! It's a job , yes, but you should still enjoy it!

Hey ladies!
I got the job at the hemorrhoid clinic I start April 1st! It doesn't pay much, but I really like the office manager and the other MA. I would get 2 dollars more an hour at the externship job, but I don't need the drama and stress of that place. I have free insurance also!
I found out around 5pm last night, my friend charlie was supposed to be coming over. I was done at noon at the externship so Phil and I saw the 3pm Django movie (violent wow)
I came home started making my home made low carb chicken pot pies, charlie dropped by then phil came by later and we all had dinner and watched some bad tv. lol
Phil got Charlies approval! My friend Karen from school mentioned a band is playing at the casaloma ballroom for the Cardinals opening season (we all have to wear cardinal jerseys/t-shirts). It's on Saturday and we have tentatively made plans to go out. I'm trying to fix up Charlie with Karen. His fiance basically told him a month after getting the engagement ring that she wanted someone with more financial security. He's been despondent for over a month. I'm hoping they hit it off. He needs someone to hang out with.
I weighed 143.8 this morn, which is good.
I mentioned crab legs so Phil is coming over tonight and we are going to hit Red Lobster for my celebration dinner. Yep, I will have some celebratory biscuits. LOL
Just have to eat clean tomorrow.
I didn't get much sleep last night
Meeting my dad in Illinois at noon then we are all driving over to my niece's house in Collinsville for her daughter's 4 year birthday party. Her whole preschool class is going to be there.
I think I'll stop and get some sugar free ice cream so I don't feel too deprived. Phil wants me to bring him back a piece of cake. lol
Boy, my behind is draggin'....
Phil is really smart, really funny and I'm way funny around him. I'm hilarious. LOL
You've heard the saying, "that he/she makes me a better man/woman" that's how i feel.
He started going to couples therapy to try to save his last relationship and after it went down hill he continued to go. So he can really communicate well, talk about feelings, he's direct, will ask for his needs....
The complete opposite of B.
It's refreshing.
And passionate.
Never thought I'd find that again.

Hey ladies!
The party was a hit with the kids. Me, I ate my way through waiting 3 hours for Scooby do to show up! LOL Sunday was Red Lobster. Today I'm doing meat.
Slept 13.5 hours last night, didn't wake until 12.45!!! OMIGOD. Body/spirit revived!
Didn't get much done today getting up so late then battery was dead when I started my car. After chasing that problem and running errands didn't get home til 7.30.
Tomorrow I'm at the mock jury duty from 7.45am until 6pm. These hours tues, wed., and fri. How i wish I had this week off before I start my job Monday. Need a "vacation" from the stress of the last couple of months.
But getting $500.00 for three days of mock jury work is outweighing my need for vacay. lol
Seeing my lady at the nursing home after jury stuff tomorrow night. It's her birthday.
Food will be the issue. The place will feed us breakfast, lunch, snacks, but I'm sure it won't be low carb friendly. Thought I'd take my back back with some protein drinks, bacon, diet 7-up to see me through the very long day.
Hope I can sleep tonight....it's 10:45 and my eyes are wide, wide awake!

Last night was a long day, but today we got out at 3.30 after doing our first deliberation for damages. It was fun doing the mock jury for sure today. Tomorrow should be relatively short also, deliberating whether or not to punish this "corporation" for negligence.
Weighed in at 147 yesterday sorry to say. Made a mad dive into the carbs at the hotel also. Back on track today. Once I introduce the sugar and it seems the alcohol lately (while dating)...I start the slippery slide.
Need to get back to the surface of low carb, and stand firm
