The eats today.

What a day, again. Is it only Tuesday? LOL!  I was up early this morning and wanted to get a bike ride in since rain was supposed to be coming.  It was pretty cloudy and oh so humid out.  Here is my 6:30 a.m. face:


Kinda tired LOL. I did a quick 6.5 miles before breakfast with the hopes of getting back out after breakfast.  Then it was time to eat! Protein waffles.

I am on a totally blueberry binge lately.  

I worked for a while and had to wait for some spitting rain to stop before I went back out riding.  I always have to remember how lucky I am to be able to flex my work to ride.  The sun peeked out for a bit.

I saw some bee balm today:


I would like to find space for this at our new house.

Nice 15 mile ride done.


Only 198 miles to go for the month!  Woo Hoo!  I had my mid morning snack when I got back in, dripping buckets of sweat from humidity.



Let’s do more food pictures today, okay? I’m on a roll!  This was lunch – greek yogurt with some cereal and a side of blueberries to go with my binge 😀



Sorry to do this again and whining about work, but I have to say it was a horribly frustrating day at work. I thought things were getting better, but not so.  This new account is so convoluted. There is another transcription company that has hired *my* transcription company to do overflow work for them. (I would think somebody has to lose money in this chain somewhere). When I was put on the account, I have sort of been bounced around with who to talk to and how to do stuff.  I think I found a match for the most unorganized company, which I thought mine had the lock on. Apparently not.  So, there is a lot of wasting of my time running into a brick wall, and the one thing that will piss off a transcriptionist is interfering with production.  I have about had it. I am now actively looking for new employment. I like my company, but if I don’t do this new account then there will not be enough work for me, but this new account is not worth the money.  I think you are all as tired about me griping about this as I am dealing with it.  Maybe I will have to start flipping furniture LOL!

Okay, that’s done!  Time for a latte!



I put the AC on so I could have a hot latte today.  Figure that one out 😉

I am eating lots of broccoli again. I made that goal this month to eat more veggies and I have been better at least about getting in the broccoli!



I need some chocolate or something tonight while I work on my resume.

    Oh man, that is something I do not like doing–the resume and looking for new work. I guess its better than the frustrating job?

    On the up side, you had some very tasty treats today! And you are doing great on your mileage too.

    I hope my bee balm will come back bigger and better next year!

      It is at that waffling point of whether it is worth it to stay and leaning more towards no. If they could just get it together, it would be fine.

    I hope you can find a better solution. And soon, for your sanity’s sake!

    I always forget about how absolutely YUMMY your waffles with blueberry topping look. Drooling over here.

    Do you have options for bypassing your company and acquiring clients independently for yourself? That is what I did 12 years ago and I was able to have 2 different medical practices as MY clients involving 5 physicians. I also kept one client from the transcription company that I had worked for. It worked out well for about 8 years until one office after another went electronic medical records and chose systems that eliminated the home transcriptionist. I still have one client group that I do through myself. At least being independent you would be able to get the full fee and not have to give a portion to a transcription company. You certainly have built up a good reputation. Just a thought. And for those who think it is a plum job – it can be very stressful. Pluses yes but negatives as well.

      It would be really hard to get the clients myself, particularly with the transitions to EMR and keeping up with all HIPAA requirements. It would be an expense to set that up with a platform and such. Ideally I want to transition out of the field, but I need other things in life to fall in place before I can do that.

    You should flip over furniture, you’re so good at it and you love doing it 🙂
    I can understand your frustration about work and why you want to look for a new job. It’s not worth all the stress. Till then: hang in there and get as much bike rides in as you can because it helps relieve your stress.

      I do have options to explore. Sometimes it is hard to leave security (or semi security… ) and go for something different.

    Hmm well no matter what happens, it never hurts to take a look at what kind of jobs are available. Who knows, maybe something is open that would rock your world. Could you possibly keep doing the good accounts and then supplement by furniture flipping during the rest of the day? At least then you could be doing something you love to do. Think of all the blog pictures you’d have on all your stunning creations! 😉

    In the meantime, hang in there. It’s frustrating but sometimes just the act of dusting off the resume and looking can make you feel a bit better.

    I did medical transcription for over 20 years and it is a really enjoyable job. However, when you can’t hear the doctor and you are making about 1/5 as much money per hour, it is horrible! I feel your pain.

    Blueberries are sooo good right now! I have been eating lots of them too. One year I melted some extra dark chocolate and then gently folded in big, plump, fresh blueberries (more berries than chocolate, just enough to coat) and then dropped them in clusters on a cookie sheet. Chill til the chocolate is set. SO delicious. You can add walnuts to those too if you like. Antioxidant dessert!

    I was just thinking of you Lori because I was reading Tony’s medical records – most of which I can’t understand, but I thought “this is what Lori does every day!”
