In Reply to: Anyone else dying for school to start? (sm) - SM

I'm going to be doing a happy dance on September 8. It's the first day of school and my birthday. It's the best gift this year. Mine has been out of school since the end of May!!!!!

Doing the happy dance...
We just moved into a newly bought house (same neighborhood as we rented in) and we're now in bus riding range (too close before).  Today was the first day of school so I drove my kids, but I looked out the window this morning and what do I see but a group of kids congregated at the opening of my driveway.  My house is a bus stop!   My kids will be let off the bus at the opening of their own driveway.  What luck!
keyboard happy dance
Wow! I have used the microsoft ergo keyboards for years..the last one being the 4000 model. It seems after about a year the keys get a little sticky or something and my wrists start to hurt and arms fall asleep, even at brand new I have a little of this problem. I just got a Goldtouch keyboard and wrist rests today and I cannot tell you the difference I feel after just one shift of work. WOW! I am a total convert!!
I'm doing a crazy happy dance!

I know this is not the religion board, but I have to give a shout out - so if it bothers you look down real quick. Psalm 116:1 I love the Lord, because he hath heard my voice and my supplications. Thank You Lord for Your faithfulness. You have seen every tear and every time my wages have been changed by Medquist. Thank you, Lord Jesus!

I am beyond excited this morning! I have been busy, busy, busy on the Internet since Saturday night, following a trail on earning money on the Internet. I did not even sleep Saturday and then went to church all day Sunday and then back on the computer Sunday night. Anyway, after many, many hours, the Lord just dropped a site on me, I don't even know how I got to it. Well, I signed up and started making money answering surveys! So far, I have made close to $60 in just a few hours! This is for real. I am mad, because it is too easy. I know how I have struggled in the last few months, really the last several years, to earn a decent wage. I have years of data entry experience, and that is how I am looking at this. Just keep the forms moving. Advertisers are willing to pay for exposure, hoping to influence your buying decisions. With this, all I needed to start was my email! I was so impressed, I set up a new blog that has all the details, some tips and the link. The company even asked me to share a testimonial. The site has great support. All the details are in my blog, but basically you get paid per form (the ones I did paid 0.60), and they estimate doing at least 12 an hour. We Ts know how to move records!  I did 16 forms an hour easy last night, and like I said, I am just getting started. You can listen to your favorite TV show while you do this! Great referral earnings too. You can e-mail me if you have any questions or if I can be of help. I am glad things have been going better with the Q - the additional bonuses and OT has been great. But this makes me really happy.


POLL: Home School vs. Charter School vs. Public School vs. Priv ate School...
Pros and cons of each too. I have two little ones that will be starting school soon and I would like opinions on all. Thanks in advance! :)
See if they have a class strictly "technique" for dance team. My daughters danced with band for years and took "technique" class. If no technique, ballet is the best basic before moving on to the other dances.
I would like U2 dance...
take a cha-cha-cha chance!
I work 2 MTs jobs as well, but I make time to take beginning dance classes for adults at least 2-3 times a week. I also recommend Pilates for relaxing and stretching.
So you think you can dance
Is anyone watching this?  I haven't seen it, but my MIL says it is really good.  I'm tired of the reruns of House and some of the others.  I know that someone mentioned Medical Incredibles (something like that) and I have watched it a few times.  Just wondered if this show was as good as American Idol or similar.  Of course I can't miss an episode of All My Children - been watching that since 1970 (I was 10).  I'm just looking for some good TV to help me relax after a day at work.  
I'm a big fan of So You Think You Can Dance. sm
I like it a lot better than Dancing With the Stars because these are mostly highly trained amateur dancers, wtih a few street dancers in the mix. They have them paired up, and they randomly pick all different kinds of dances to do each week....so you might have a ballroom dancer girl paired with a hip-hop guy, and they have to perform a Cuban Samba (that was one instance this week). Next week those two will do something different. It's funny to see a classically trained ballet dancer attempt to do hip hop, or a hip hop dancer attempt to do modern lyrical dance, but for the most part they really are superb. The ballroom men always are my favorite...
Try Irish dance!

My 16-year-old daughter got involved a couple of years ago, and it's wonderful! I had to sit through all the classes as I'm our area coordinator, so I decided to join the adult classes. It's a very social dance form, especially with adults who do a lot of what is called ceili dancing, which essentially dancing with a group of people. In Ireland, it's not unusual for 4 to 100 people to get together than do progressive dancing (stopping for a pint of Guinness as needed) for hours on end.

Whatever class you take, YOU GO, GIRL!

Dance Classes
I have 20+ years of dance training (ballet, jazz, tap).  From what I see, jazz and hip-hop would both help with drill team.  Jazz more so, but I know some drill teams are getting a little edgier with the hip-hop style.  If I can help with any other questions, feel free to email me.
I did that with 2 kids with time mgmt and a high school girl who babysat 3 days a week after school
Does anyone take dance classes for exercise?
I'd like to get out of the house once in a while and can't stand the gym.  I just don't want to be the only adult student among children.  LOL
I have thought about it as my 2 daughter take dance - sm
Their school is basically pre-school all the way through high school, but they also have adult classes as well.  Since we are a bit rural it is cheap too, about $25 a month for 1 class a week (so $6.25 a class), not bad for a 1 hour class once a week.  They put on a kickass recital every May too which is quite impressive.  I may try it next year....want to shed my poundage first, have been working on it and 7 pounds lighter so far......have about 60 or so to go.....so we will see.
Irish dance competition.
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance!
I JUST WANT TO PRAISE HIM - your post made me misty, thank God for you!
the dance that was made famous
in Dirty Dancing, one of my favorite all time movies.... sorry, just couldn't pass this up. 
Last Dance by Donna Summer
The cost of running a private school or any school is expensive....
Why do you think public schools are so run down and can't find good teachers?  Because the government and people to not put forth the effort or $$$$ to improve the educational system.
There was a techno dance remix of it done in the 1980s.
Can't remember the band but they played it at the nightclubs.
What company is this? Sounds like the same song and dance
Gotcha all beat - over 64 and love to dance nm


You know I'm just watching them dance. I don't care about A, B or C listers.
Who cares if some over-hyped A lister dances on the show or if it's Tatum O'Neal. It's an interesting and charming little show. I am not interested in seeing say Jessica Simpson or Jude Law (A listers?) dance.
Hora = Israeli dance........no message
Merengue is form of dance, like salsa
or cha cha. You'd be just as likely to dance to *rancheras* and *corridos* since, technically, merengue is a little more South American (namely Dominican Republic) as Tex-Mex. Nonetheless, it is all great spirited fun and I hope you have a good time. It is a wonderful tradition.
I hope you dance - Lee Ann Womack (no message)
Don't cap happy holiday season. Cap the others and Happy Holidays alone. nm
I've been listening to the same song and dance for years.

Things only seem to be getting worse.

For mom with teen girls, what type of dance classes sm
are appropriate for learning moves to try out for drill team?  my daughter is 14 and has never been in any dance classes.  i am puzzled by the jazz, hip/hop, etc. and have no clue where she needs to start.  she wants to try out for the drill team next year.  TIA!
The School of Hard Knocks is the best MT school
My kids are allowed on extracurricular activity a piece. My daughter is taking one dance class

week and my son will be starting basketball at school in a month and that is it aside from church activities.  I definitely think parents push their kids to do too much.  Not only is it stressful for the kids, but I can imagine the added stress of parent who works full time having to keep track of each other's schedules, the kids' schedules, and running to and fro taxing kids back and forth!

I worry about my nephew.  He's 13 and he plays every sport there is.  He broke his knee playing fooball two years ago and now has to wear a knee brace in every sport he playes, he's 13!  Right now, he is playing 7th grade football, he is in two different soccer leagues, and he is signing up for a football outside the school system.  So he basically has some sort of practice or a game every day of the week and on Saturdays!  He has strained his back, he complains about his knee aching.  When I say something to my sister about him overdoing it, she says "he does want he wants, we're not making him."  I've told her that she is his mother and it's really up to her to set limits, but she loves the idea that she's the mom of a "star athlete."

Anyway, just a sore subject with me, I guess.  I'm really close to my kids and all my neices and nephews and I hate to see them miss out on the fun in life just because they feel they have to schedule everything!

Heck, I did not say not to wish her a happy birthday! She deserves a happy birthday.
I was just saying her birthday was on Sunday!! :) Why does everyone always want to read something negative into everything on this board. I certainly did not mean anything negative by it! I was just makin' it known WHEN her birthday was!!
We met in high school. My high school sweetheart
introduced us in a discussion over Ford versus Chevy versus Dodge. I used to race my Dodge Coronet with oldstyle 318 V-8 engine against the guys on the back roads and old highways. High school boyfriend had a Chevy truck. DH had a Ford Fairlane and later an AMC Javelin that just made me swoon. We didn't actually start dating until three years later, and my old high school boyfriend was a bit surprised at that since he introduced us.
Glad to hear you found the perfect match....I am still looking for someone to really work my own schedule like they advertise. Enjoy!!! If you have any suggestions for me finding a place to work your own schedule, let me know..
YES, i am happy there too, after 5 yr!
To Happy MT
I am happy at MDI just wish they would send a little more love our way.  I switch to different accounts when they are short and work many weekends and if I am correct I have worked most of the holidays.  I get a phone call or email last minute that they need coverage and I do not say no.  I start early and finish late.  I have talked to others in the same boat and they are sad..  I know they merged with Transend and it takes time to  get things in order but when it seems that some get the bonuses and some of us are overlooked it does not seem right.  I think they need to look at everyone in the same light and do the right thing.
Is anyone happy with MQ?
Happy now!
23 the first time (then-husband got the 7-year-itch). 34 second time. I had two miscarriages the first time around. This marriage - We have two great little boys!!
I am very happy nm
Happy so far
Hi, I have only been with MQ for 7 months, but I have friends that have been with MQ and have tried other companies, and the consensus is...their new system DQS (DocQscribe) is VERY user friendly compared to other company's systems. AND, as far as WE are concerned, MQ is very flexible time-wise. But I have read other posts that maybe new hires are more chained to a set schedule. My friends and I are out of 2 offices that seem to be very lenient as to scheduling. Personally, I work more hours than I signed up for. But, if MQ were to call when I am away from my computer, (bathroom), like a poster below stated about a different company, I would be VERY aggravated, especially since I am post-colectomy with less than satisfactory results!!! (If you get my drift.)
Be Happy about it
My 20-year-old son suffers every day from injuries he received during his high school football career. He has had broken bones, dislocated shoulders, and he has to wear a mouth brace due to jaw injuries. The medication he takes for his jaw has caused a stomach ulcer, which along with the pain from the jaw, caused his blood pressure to elevated. He said more times than I could count, "I wish I had not played football." Support his decision and be happy that he is not out there getting all banged up.
Happy here
Look, most people who are happy with a company don't just get on a message board to say, "I had a great day at work today," or "I think I make a decent wage and I'm happy with it."  They get on to complain or ask questions or just to surf and see what others are talking about.  The people who are complaining are loud and you hear them a lot.  MQ seems to have more MTs who have been with them for 5+ years than any other company.  That should tell you something right there.  
Happy MQ MT
I wonder about the people that are so unhappy about MQ. Where did they work before? Was it inhouse? Did they come there direct from a school. What is it that makes the difference of some people being happy and others very disappointed. Why do some have an abundance of work and others have none? Is it the quality of work being done?
I am happy!
I am happy working at MQ. I come to this site usually for a good laugh, and sometimes I do post. I don't flame the people that complain all the time, I just wonder why they do?!?!?!

We should start a poll - Are you happy with MQ or aren't you - no big explanations - just a YES OR A NO. My answer is YES!
I am happy with MQ!! I think the people who are happy with MQ (and I think there are a lot) just don't take the time to say so...so today I am!!
I USED to be happy but......
I haven't had a decent line count in almost a week and it has been 6 months since I had a second phone line installed and I have yet to see a single dime in reimbursement that I was told I would receive.  Why do I stay?  Because this is my first MT job and I've only been there a year.  Who else will hire me at this point?
I am happy!!!
I'm happy!


I am sure that they are happy to have me
as an employee considering I am one of the only few who actually likes working for them. I am a high producer for them, as well. There would be no reason Medquist wouldn't be proud to have me as an employee. They need to get rid of the big fat losers like you.
How happy are you??
Are you not the same ER who was on here last week trashing the Amherst office?
I'm happy for you!

I, on the other hand, had my children in my mid to late 30's.  I'm 45 and have a 12 and 5 year old.  At 50, I'll have a teenager and another one who will be right behind him.  There is definitely something to be said for having your kids when you are younger, not to say I am not enjoying mine - I'll be pretty old when they are on their own.
