Thursday random thoughts.

– The weather has been great the last couple of days. We got much needed rain and everything is really green.  Time for a ride!


I love riding in the mornings before it gets hot and the traffic builds up later in the day.  For those counting, I am over 650 miles on the year. Right on target to finish with 2000 miles.  Yay!

– Have you seen the new Zone bars? There are 2 new flavors and this is one of them:


It’s pretty good, although I would like it a little spicier 😀

– This is some of my birthday bounty. Gift cards for garden centers. Think people know me or what?


My work did a server reboot after lunch, which meant down time – so I figured I would spend one of my gift cards. Garden Time  is only about a mile and a half from the house, so I popped over there.  They finally had their specialty coneflowers in stock. I have been waiting!  I loved the Milkshake, so I got one of those. This is a picture taken of my garden last year. I didn’t snag any of this coneflower before we sold the house (does it ever feel good to say that) because they were too small for me to divide.



I was quite happy to see that one available. I also got one called Supreme Cantaloupe.  Here is a stock picture of that:



It’s hard to wait for these to grow and bloom!

– I have been mulling over different options for a job. As many of you know, mine can be a bit stressful at times, more from the actual company than the work.  Problem is that I will not get paid what I get paid here if I work for another company and it just would not be worth it.  I am toying with the idea of getting certified in coding and billing since those are jobs that are going to be around and growing for a long time. Not to mention there is the big switch from ICD9 to ICD10 on October 1st and there will be a lot of turnover. BTW –  My advice to all US peeps is get all your medical appointments done before 10/01/15 and then don’t go for  a while until all that change shakes out. 😉 

I get a tuition discount if I go through my previous school that I did the MT training for, so that is an option.  Flipping a house would be good, too, but I am tired of real estate at the moment…

There’s no hurry though, unless my company goes belly up, which actually wouldn’t be too surprising. For now the status quo is a good thing. I don’t mind surfing along for a while and enjoying our new calm.

      I don’t mind my work so much, it’s really the management. You can’t beat working from home, really. I am so lucky to be able to do that and set my own schedule. That’s why I am not in a huge hurry to make a change.

    Unfortunately, management is most of the problem with work…pretty much everyone I know likes (or at least can tolerate) their job, but the stupid things management does causes all the frustration. Where is that dang money tree?! Maybe you can buy one with one of your gift cards… 😉

    I am a certified medical coder and biller and it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to get work if you do not have the medical coding and billing experience. Granted most companies in my area want at least two or three years experience in this field before they even want to talk to you. I went through an intensive two year coding program also. I would think twice about going into the medical coding field!!
