Because life's busy ...

It's been awhile since I blogged, I know. I've been busting my ass trying to finish my last two classes for my Medical Transcription certificate. I finally finished my second-to-last-class yesterday, and figured, I'm good, I have 5 weeks once we get back from vacation to finish my last class.

HAHAHA, joke's on me. I looked at the class today. I have an average of about 20 transcriptions per unit (with a total of 8 units). I trucked through all my other classes, and thought, "I'm way ahead of the game." And I was. I'm going through Kaplan University, which offers the course for 6 months, as compared to 1 year like other schools. Now I see why it could take a year. One transcription could take me 10 minutes, or it could take me an hour. It's impossible to say until I get into it. Most of it is a lot of research to make sure I have the correct drug, word, etc. It's labor intensive, to say the least.

So today I coughed up $50 for peace of mind. Why? We're on vacation next week. Right after, Addison will be in the All-Star games for Pooler. His first game is at 11 a.m. June 21. That's just the sub-districts. If we end up going to the state tournament, it will be out-of-town. Adam will be leaving soon. Addison will be out of school. There's a lot of factors that prompted me to pay the $50 for a month's extension. I hate stress, and there's about to be a lot coming up. I'm a month and a half smoke-free, and don't want to start again because of stress.

This is starting to bore even me, but I feel much better now.

Orlando or BUST!!!!!!
