I do the laundry, but boy do I have HUGE laundry baskets of clean clothes to put away!
I don't mind doing the laundry, drying, and even folding. Boy do I hate having to separate them and put them away or even put them in my kids rooms! Time to have a pow-wow with my teens, so they can do their own!

I have two HUGE baskets overflowing with clean clothes that need to go into their drawers or dressers! I hate when that happens!!!
File...Don't Pile


Does anyone have experience using this system by Pat Dorff?  I'm curious specifically about the advantages between and the preference between the A-Z vs. the Prefix method. 


I may have one. I've got a pile of keyboards and other
computer stuff I'm sorting through, trying to decide what to recycle, what to give to Goodwill, etc.   I'll look tomorrow to be sure and let you know. 
Can anyone say OUTRAGEOUS! I can think of a pile of things better
on that crummy CMT exam that isn't going to amount to a hill of beans for anyone!  Why do people keep taking it?  The only people who benefit from it sit in the Modesto offices!  Heck, they even rake in the dough off offshore MTs getting "certified." What a big bunch of HOOEY!
What a steaming pile of manure! SM

So am I to assume that anyone who is not a CMT or does not wish to be a CMT are the “imposters” of whom she speaks?  She worry’s less about where her records are being transcribed and more about who is doing the transcription.  I have a question.  Would it be easier for her to run a background check on an MT in India versus an MT in the United States?  Where your medical records are being transcribed directly correlates to who is transcribing your records!  Also, how on earth can the “Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity” keep a watchful eye on the integrity of a person’s medical records when the very HIPAA laws created to insure integrity cannot be enforced on offshore MTs?


Here’s the deal, if the AHDI wants to make credentialing mandatory for MTs, then they need to insure that the American MT salary range is increased to reflect requirement of credentials.  They also need to disavow offshoring in any and every form, and bring the work back to the U.S. where it belongs and where it is protected by HIPAA.  When the AHDI can secure a fair pay range that reflects mandatory credentialing, education, and required HIPAA knowledge and adherence, THEN I will become a CMT again. 
Oh, my!. I HAVE been there, desk in kitchen while dishes pile up and so on.
The little ones, at least, from this distance are happy memories and much missed. It really does get a LOT easier, I promise, and sooner than you can imagine, up over your head in it all as you are. Keep taking lots of deep breaths.
I do laundry for myself....now...but I did have--sm
a family of five to do laundry for at one time. working or not, I still kept up on it. I had to. Nobody else would do it. lol. but that is just me...and meant no offense. It was not directed at you, anyway.
LAUNDRY! Never ends...

I do laundry for 4 during the week...
and 5 on the weekends when my son comes home from college.  I have enough laundry every other day for at least 3 loads - jeans, towels and shirts, socks, underwear.  Today, I had 5 loads because I stripped all the beds, plus had a small load of black and red, which I don't always have, depends on who wears what.  I have a relative who always buys new socks for her family so she doesn't have to wash as often and used to leave the dirty stuff pile up on basement floor until the stuff started to mildew. 
My first job working at a dry cleaner/laundry. sm
Working on a shirt folding machine in the summertime with temp over 100 degrees indoors.  Smelling the dry cleaning fumes. 
do your present laundry first and then treat yourself--sm
for a job *well done* by buying new clothes. That way you get both. just a suggestion.
I think teaching pre-teens how to do laundry

I think 10-12 year olds can help do some laundry - it helps them develop a work ethic and shows them that if they go out on their own, what they will have to do....well, the ones who don't continually bring their laundry back to their mothers.  *LOL*  AND they love eaning $$$ - it's a great way, instead of *tossing* allowances at them.....chores/laundry/etc. = few dollars in their little pockets *S*

It's all about deals and contracts w/kids I think....and I'm a pro...on the subject, as I have some....*lol*

My friend's kids have been doin their own laundry since they were 6.
I absolutely HATE putting laundry away.
Sorting, washing and folding are not a problem. 
I fold laundry while I'm zoned out watching TV.

I don't watch much TV anyway, because I can't stand sitting still doing nothing.

Mine too. --hate folding the laundry the most though - nm
Truly sad when couples air their dirty laundry in public

Please, think of the children! 

I would feel sorry for Sh*ri except she is such an obvious whackjob who truly deserves whatever is coming her way.  Baby, you know the old saying:  What goes around, comes around.  Obviously it's coming around back to you in spades!

Tip on Aching Wrists/Target Laundry Detergent!
Okay, I have hesitated sharing this one for a long time now, cause I know, absolutely know, I will get flamed somehow, cause its sort of silly, but its not silly to those of us whose wrists and/or arms are shot from this "career".  I have really bad wrists now AND elbows - actually if your wrists hurt, chances are your tendons are aggravated right up to your elbow, too, though the pain might not localize there.  At any rate, I also found my wrist would hurt with some "ADLs", mostly laundry.  No matter what size of detergent I bought, they were always heavy, and the motion of pouring deturg into the cups really hurt my right wrist. Sometimes I could even hear an audible "pop" on that motion of holding this heavy bottle and pouring. My physical medicine guy said it was the motion of that with the weight on top of typing that wreaked havoc on my wrists, and that even lots of women who don't type have popped their tendons out using laundry detergent!  Well, this is SO stupid, but...a few months ago I went to Target and saw their brand "Method" laundry detergent.  Its super concentrated and fits 32 loads in a tiny bottle. Plus, its like those mouthwash dispensers where you just hold the bottle upright and squeeze and a tiny bit of the detergent fills in a tiny cup at the top. You fill to the line, which takes all of 1 second, and that's all the detergent you need! Plus, this stuff is awesome with the laundry.  Prior to that, only Tide could get my kids clothes clean. This stuff is the BEST, and it smells great! Its about $6 for this bottle, which I would have thought expensive, but the savings on my wrists are priceless!  My carpal tunnel and elbow tendonitis have nearly completely healed. It was just this stupid combo of motions that did my wrists in!  For those older MTs like me, who've been at this for over 20 years, try it! It might help!!  Again, I see a sports med guy, and get injections occasionally. I used to have to wear wrist braces, etc.  I was scheduled for surgery until I started using this silly Target laundry detergent! Now, no more pain!  Isn't that so weird? But neat?
Our 2 previous Dells are now our random computer parts replacement pile. No more Dells. nm
Laundry. Offered kids $5 a load but they turned it down. Now everyone does their own, except hubby
browsing sites, gardening, cook, clean, laundry, SLEEP.

Need to get up every 2 hours and take some sort of break. Food, dog walk, jumping jacks, laundry,
The company which starts with a laundry detergent and ends with water? Gonna delete that too admin?
YUP, huge fan!!!!
OMG, thanks!! That would be a huge (sm)
mistake personally for me, as I do not know how I would make out with the kids, and then to go through all that, train, and not have it work. Will look elsewhere. Thanks for the input!!
Huge, I think it's small on my end (NM)
:::huge applause for you::: nm
DH is a HUGE fan! I watch only for him.
the SEP IRA is a huge deduction...
but I can't say that I've seen people frequently posting they take $10K in deductions. That also means they spent $10K. You may be imagining that. Maybe do an archive search and then try to repost and contact them?  As has been frequently said on this post, the only difference between IC and SE is an IC pays another 7.5% self employment tax but then takes deductions. Don't see how that adds up to 10 grand.
I smell a huge rat
Is your husband up to no-good with this loser? First of all any "my baby's daddy" situation has scumbag written all over it. Second of all, if your husband doesn't mind being used by this lazy bum for a free place to live, he has to be getting something out of the bargain. I'd be doing some serious checking around if I were you.

Meanwhile, you're right to keep this piece of crap away from your kids. If your husband likes him so much let him live with this waste of oxygen alone.

Good luck.
So what if it's with huge templates....
600 lines an hour is 600 lines an hour whether it's straight typing or using templates. I WISH I had huge templates.
Anyone here Bayscribe? Have a huge ?

  for you.  When you hit SUBMIT and go into the spell check, and say there's a spelling error it picks up (for example, it's a medicine that I need to look up and verify), is there ANY WAY I can do this without having to completely close down the spell check, go to another window, look up the word, and then re-hit SUBMIT and spell check again?

I've still new to Bayscribe, but so far this has been a huge time eater-upper.  For some reason it won't let me do anything but close up the spell checker, look up the word, and then re-spell check (and of course it doesn't remember any of the fixes I've already made so I need to go back through them again). 


Ideas??????????? THANK YOU!!  

Well there is already a huge thread...
Why keep it going and going?  If you all are just now realizing that AHDI is against the MT, then have you had your head in the sand the past few years or what?  Get a grip!  Life is what you make it!  This OP obviously wants to keep bringing it up and bringing it up blocking the entire board with this crap.
I got rid of my HUGE desk...sm
i use a 20 inch widescreen laptop and i just ordered a very small rolling desk.  i use wireless keyboard, mouse, and headphones. that way, I can roll my office outdoors when the weather is nice or in my bedroom or any place I will be comfortable as I suffer from chronic back problems.
You can't. It's a huge ripoff.
It sucks plain and simple.  If you're not terribly interested in making enough money to pay the bills it might be okay for you.  Not for me.
We have a huge 4 day celebration in our little town

There is something going on from tonight right through until the fireworks on the 4th.  There is a street dance, a bean hole bean supper, a lobster bake and just tons of stuff going on.

Our town is only population 7500, but the celebration has grown to over 30,000 attendees for the 2 hour parade, followed by fun, games, entertainment and music in the park and then fireworks that start at 9:00 and last for hours. It's great fun!

I'm lucky too.  I live just a mile from the festivities, so I'm home for a long time while people are still waiting in traffic. The traffic goes smoothly though.  The events have always been very well organized with our school bus drivers giving free shuttle bus rides.

Happy 4th everyone!

I have never been SO embarassed, but I called, and its A HUGE NO!! Oh well!
Thanks! My friend's kid is a huge fan & will love this :)
NO. We have committed to huge OT today
and all weekend.
Whatever, but it would be a huge meal and take me months to eat it. nm
Huge room in a very old house.
Walls are a dark greenish gold with hardwood floors. Standard Office Max computer table where I do all my work. Bookshelves all around the room. Only other furniture is an old desk that is covered with all the stuff I don't have room for on the computer table. Four large windows facing south and east. When working I have all the important stuff like reference books, printer, etc within reach.
To all ICs claiming huge deductions...(sm)

I just met with my accountant yesterday.  I am so sick I cannot think straight.  I asked alot of people before moving ahead with an IC position and leaving employee status.  EVERYONE stated that the deductions you can write off are more than worth paying the extra SS taxes that you no longer have an employer to pay.  I even saw several people specifically state they lowered their taxable income by $10,000 or more so the IC status was well worth the headache of paying the extra taxes. 

Well, I would sure love to know how in the world you ladies come up with these deductions.  The accountant said my total deductions for my home office came to about $2400.  But then my SS taxes I owed ate up that plus about another $1500.  Are those of you reaping in huge deductions working strictly via the internet?  I have no gas, mileage, vehicle wear/tear deductions because I'm strictly internet based.  But even with considering those deductions, if I had them, I still cannot see where in the world you all are coming out so much better.  Someone please offer suggestions/comments....have I just completely screwed myself over here or do I need a new accountant??

Well ok then!! ENTER NOW!!!! HUGE PRIZE!!!

Hey everyone, I have a huge amount of strawberries from my
want to make a different kind of dessert with them. Every year I always wind up making strawberry shortcake or strawberry ice cream and well those are great but I'm such a creature of habit that I really want to make something completely different. If you have any great ideas, PLEASE let me know!


once I went to a huge outdoor Colorado BBQ..

Wow, I'm getting a huge break compared to others...sm
Through Cincinnati Bell, I have to have their broadband, which is also the ISP.  As part of the bundle, I get Complete Connections which includes call waiting, caller ID, call block, etc.  This whole package comes to around $44 and gives you 200 minutes of long distance.  I recently asked to have unlimited added to my phone line, but it automatically goes on both lines.  The additional charge for unlimited is $10.  So I basically pay $10 for unlimited! 
Yes you can do huge blocks of text...
I do the same thing, whole entire procedures, combined ROS and PE sections, whole reports in some cases, and I have never come across a block of text that it said was too big. I use mine in conjunction with DQS and I even incorporate the @@ sign so that I can just move from jump code to jump code and fill in the different information that needs to be changed.

Another cool feature of IT is that you can not only make expansions for words and phrases, you can make up your own commands. Like I have one that will go up in my report and find DIAGNOSIS and change it to DIAGNOSES if there winds up being more than 1. I also have one that will delete the 1. if the doctor dictates a 1. and doesn't dictate a 2. as well as I made one that will go to the beginning of a paragraph if they dictate a 2 without dictating a 1 and it will put a 1. and 2 spaces, then go to the end of the paragraph and put a 2. and 2 spaces and then my cursor is right where I need it to start #2. It has saved me a lot of muttering and cursing under my breath about doctors who don't know how to count LOL.
I think mismanagement is a HUGE factor, here!
No way. It's a huge wave that's just going to keep growing
