So you could end up getting more back at the end of the year
if you have your home office deduction, etc.? At least if that happens I can feel like I am making more money doing this! GRR, I hate the IRS!
I did it for a year and have just gotten back
from a 6 week trip, though don't usually travel much now except for weekends and vacation. 
Mine are in year-round thank goodness! They've started their new year 2 months ago.
I saw them in concert about a year back...
It was at a venue that was tiny, compared to most places anyways. They were on a stage that would spin around. It was so intimate and probably the best concert I have been to. The opening band was awesome too, Lennon. It was mostly just her playing the piano and singing. Awesome, awesome time. And, this is coming from a 26-year-old who loves them! lol
I went back to school this year
In my area both the RN-AD and dental hyg. programs have wait lists, however the dental hyg. wait is like 4 years versus the RN wait being 1-1/2 years. I am just finishing up all my gen eds and I should be off the wait list and into the core program next fall. I am taking extra psych classes to fill my "elective" courses as I was told that hospitals prefer nurses with their BSN to have psych minors, and I'm only in the AD program (associate degree), but I can still list extra psych courses on my resume. I wish you the very best of luck!!!
back in the mid 1980s it was 80K a year.(sm)
I worked with an MT who went and that's what she made.
Union diesil mechanic - good pay, great benefits. We swap year to year on who brings home more sm
money.....but I am an IC and he has all the benefits...health insurance/dental that the company pays for, pension plan, 401k, etc.  Factor all of that in and he makes way more than I do.
Not getting back - how much we made gross for the year. nm
Congratuilations! I did a year ago and never looked back!
Happy New Year back at you! Have fun! We'll
be fine, won't we, folks?  Have a good time!
but don't worry - next year BOS will more than likely change it back! nm
to cowgirl - Last I knew, last year the job paid $25,000/year no taxes, etc.
The hospital was bombed about a year ago, but not a lot of damage, very minimal damage.
44-year-old WF, M, Texas, 3 grown kids, just had 26 year wedding anv.
nope, still crunching last few days of year to hit my 50k this year. how can you when you haven'
I have been waiting since I first heard they were coming back last year...

and I'll probably fall asleep before the ending. Happens all the time.

A study a year or two back was assessing if hormone changes were
Specifically, does LOSS of estrogen cause memory loss in women. Multi-year study, BIG study, lots of subjects.

Upshot? There WAS memory loss happening. It was not due to hormones. Middle-aged women were SO busy and SO stressed and had SO many things on the brain and things to do and places to be and things to remember about spouse, kids, job, parents, extended family, that they were STRESSED TO THE POINT THEY COULD NOT REMEMBER IT ALL! Bah on the hormone theory. We just get full up to our eyeballs of all the things we have to do and something has to give.

Like, spelling the word school or something. No can do, school does not exist in this brain any more, it got kicked out so I can remember to pick up beer on the way home!
Paula just signed a 3 year contract with AI. I can't believe they want her back. She really get
Fine. Be sure to post back here in a year and tell me about her at-home job. nm
I'm 46 and I went back to school this year full time for a BSN...sm

I was worried about because, let's face it, my short term memory isn't what it used to be LOL. Plus the program is ONLY full time. They had 1000 applicants and picked the top 70 of us. If you didn't have a 3.5 GPA, you didn't get in. But I am doing really well in school - after I got past the shock of the first 6 weeks - tons of work- and I am at the top of my class. My husband, bless his heart, is doing all the cooking and we are basically kind of ignoring the dirt. My house will be clean again another day. I am finishing up my second semester, have 3 more semesters for a BSN, and then another 2.5 years to get my masters and be an advanced practice nurse. 41 is definitely not too old! You will have to work smart to save your back but it can be done. Also MT is starting a slow slide out...you would be smart to start your second career now while you still have a job... IMHO

good luck!




Nothing this year. We ALWAYS got a cool surprise in the past, but this year nothing. :-( nm
After I went to a 1-year MT course at a vocational school, it was so bad that I did the 2-year colle
Not only did I finally receive the proper training, but the woman on the advisory board hired and mentored me. I also joined the local AAMT and networked. Good luck. I know how frustrating it can be. A community college will have a good program to include medical language, MT courses taught by local MTSOs, business English, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, etc.
I had back pain for an entire year. They did a trigger point
injection and it's gone. I couldn't believe it. I wish I'd found it sooner.
Love to know how far back it goes, was a member for about a year in 1998, we could use $$, furnace b
so its cold here! Actually it broke the 15, the night before we left for Disney on a Make-A-Wish trip for my daughter Jenny....(we had a blast)...got back 2 days ago, it broke again that night (21st). DH got it running again, but the heater guy disassembled it last night and has not returned yet to put it back together and fix it. Luckily we have a propane fireplace or we'd be in big trouble, still chilly though especially since it goes down to 25 at night, brrrr!---so any $$$ if we are included or entitled would be wonderful...but I doubt we will get so lucky since it was so long ago that I was a "member" of AOL. Guess I will just have to work even more to pay for the repair, fun.
Yes, I lost 42 pounds on LA Weight Loss, but gained back 50 a little more than a year later . .

I was on the program for approximately four months and lost 40 pounds.  The weight did come off really fast.  At the time I was a member, there was a rebate if you kept the weight off for one year.  It sounded good, but you had to buy the supplements for the entire year, which by the end of the year added up to a few thousand dollars. 

In any case, after I finally lost the weight, I got pregnant with my fourth child.  I am now trying to lose the 50 pounds that I gained while pregnant, but my metabolism seems so much slower now.  The weight isn't coming off nearly as fast as before. :(

My 8-year-old threw up on the way home from family celebration Christmas Eve, all over the back seat

Then threw up approximately every hour from 10:00 p.m. until 8:00 a.m. Christmas morning.  Not the Christmas I had planned, up cleaning bodily fluids all night.  Somehow Santa managed to come overnight, too.  My husband, me and the 2-year-old didn't get the bug until last night, it's vicious!  Hopefully that's all over now and we can enjoy the rest of our vacation!



I think he makes $700,000.00 a year, and if they ask him to walk before his first year MQ has...sm

to pay him a cool 1 million dollars.  You can check this out at the Medquist website.   I think the CFO makes $350,000 a year, and the head of IT makes $250.000 a year.

P.S.  This does not include the perks, like expense account, car allowance, sign-on bonus, etc. 

Our 16 year old son has been working for a year now to pay for his truck.
He's learning how to sand and do body work and how the engine and transmission go together. My parents didn't buy cars for my siblings and I either. I had a 20+ year old beater car until I could afford to move up to a a newer one.

I see all the nice new cars parked in the high school parking lot every day. It's nice that so many disrespectful punk kids get handed something nicer to drive than what all the teachers drive. Oh, well. Honestly, I think most of them borrow Mommy or Daddy's car or are the child of a doctor who can afford to hand them everything.

Hopefully, my kids will take better care of their cars because they bought and built them on their own. You're not going to grow up to be responsible if you don't work hard for something and expect Mommy and Daddy to bail you out all the time.

Oh, my Dad lectured us on even allowing our child to have a vehicle because Dad didn't have one until after he had worked his way through college, lettered on the football team, got straight As, lettered on the baseball team, yadda yadda. He either walked or hitched a ride. Yeah, well, times were different back then, Daddy-O. LOL At least my kid has the opportunity to work and earn his own car.
IC - 30 hours week, $98K last year. So far this year - 28K. sm
Individual IC - own account(s).
Not me, owed last year, and expect to owe this year- sm
or break even, had more expenses this year. Only owed $200 but still don't want to owe at all. Need to start doing estimated tax payments again so I don't owe! Guess I will get off my butt and do that this year.
come on.. you cannot compare a 2-year-old and a 15-year-old
46/F I have a 9-year-old girl and a 12-year-old boy.
Ask me next year. sm
I quit as an IC telecommunting for a hospital where I was making $35,000 a year, and started for a national as an employee in April. So far, only made $4600 with them. Big OUCH! But just getting the hang of expanders and the 4 accounts I have.

Can't wait to see my end of year :(
less and less every year - sm
Used to be about $35,000, now is about $30,000
Can RAM die? I put in more RAM last year so I should have 768 -- but it says 256 now- sm
anyone have any ideas?  I am positive after I put in the new card back in early 02/2005 it read 756. So if anyone had any insight or suggestions I'd appreciate it.....might explain why my computer has been a bit slow lately...we have also had a lot of power surges/outages lately, but I do have battery back up now (after it wiped my work out 2 x), maybe it got fried from that?  TIA.
About a year now. Don't like it. NM
3 year old
I am very glad you have a happy ending. A friend of mine, who is an MT, had the same thing happen to her with a tragic ending. Her son had drowned in a pond on their property. He was also 3 years old. They just don't realize the danger.

Make sure he removes his make up before he goes to sleep, LOL.
Big S does. For one year.
I am actually thinking of dictating the information into a microcassette and then hiring a typist to type it out for me.

I believe I put it in Autocorrect as -yo and then expended to -year-old and it finally worked.
I kept a log my first year but never again. NM
When you save -year-old in your autotext check the formatted text box NOT the plain text. This should work.
I did it one year...sm
I lived in PA and was losing about $300 a week because of being out of work.  It wasn't really worth it because they only gave me $20 a week to make up for it.  I did it over the internet, so paperwork wasn't a factor, but keeping up with the check-in dates got to be a pain for so little money.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there is much help for us during the slow time.  Unemployement isn't just for the totally unemployed.  If you are losing work due to things beyond your control, that still counts.  Hope this helps!
Well, I did get a cat the next year...
so Dorothy was treated to those three cans of cat food! However, she didn't like 'em.
Maybe next year
she can blind carbon copy everyone and nobody will be the wiser.
Anyone else with an 18-year-old
My son is pulling the "greater than thou" attitude.  I don't know if this is his way of getting me to kick him out of the house or what.  He is to start college next year and we had told him he could stay here to save on rent, but I don't think it is going to work out.  Also, what obligation do we, as parents, have as far as assisting in college payment?
> 1st of the year I think she said. nm
My ten year old said to me the other day, sm
Mom, you look like a Saint.  I said, "a Saint"?  He said, "ya a Saint Bernard" 
So much for the new year being better than the last.

Life could be a lot worse, right?  I know, but I still have no work even at a different job.  I still have no money.  My bills are still behind because my jobs have just snowballed in the past three months.  Home life is the same old, same old.  Can't get the kids to pitch in without complaining.  Still can't get them up in the morning despite moving their bedtimes back.  Can't get the husband to cut back on the budget.  His job has been really slow since Thanksgiving, too.  Christmas was the same old thing.  I wound up returning my Christmas presents again this year.  Nobody gives refunds even with gift receipts so I get to use the gift cards to buy groceries.  I don't know why I thought the new year would be any different.  It's so darn depressing.  What's the point of trying so hard when nothing ever changes?

What year?
$700-$800 F/T, although 3-year-old
is constant interruption. Not her fault, of course. She is going to the sitter's starting next week. I have seen how much of a difference it makes when she is not around.
It's a man's year this year!
They are unstoppable. It's too early to call for me, but my best friend thinks it's going to be Elliott. He is good. Beautiful voice.
I was going to do this last year
but figuared my then 3 year old would just splash my laptop.  It would be nice to have one but I don't think I would get much work done with my son.  He is an only child and wants to be played with a lot of the time
