Stick to your guns
They all think being a grown up is so great until they get there.  Stay strong.  If you give in and let her jump ahead then tomorrow she will become bored with this and want something even more.  They grow up soon enough. 
Yes, had a wonderful day with beautiful red roses!
Stick to your guns!! I went through the same thing

with my husband always trying to help out one of "best buddies."  I went through this twice, with two different useless house guests.  The second time, I told hubby to go and take his "friend" with him.  After he had a little time to think it over, he realized that home and his family were lot more appealing.  Your husband will come around, especially if his family is supporting you.  Just go on with your life and let him think it over.  One word of advice, and this is what we did, when my husband wanted to come back home, we made an agreement NO MORE HOUSE GUESTS unless it was immediate family in a dire emergency, and then there would be a time limit set when they came to stay and it would be enforced.  Be strong and Good Luck!

Glad you stuck to your guns!
Wake up and smell the roses and not
alcohol breath - ewwww
Congrats on sticking to your guns
I worked for a company as a so called IC.  Then all of a sudden we had 4 days to decide if wanted to be an employee and if not had to incorporate.  4 days is not enough time to do that so I became employee.  I think it is a control issue!!  They will tell you when, how and where.  It all comes down to how high do you want to jump?  :)  For some not high enough.  When they want to start furnishing the computer, the reference materials, benefits, etc. then it is worth looking at.  That to me is an employee.  Until then.....
Very proud of you, you stick to your guns, and when the going gets tough,
be even stronger.  Tie another knot and all of that.  You are on the way to a healthier life for you and your children.  You will survive.  
dirty dancing, war of the roses and armageddon
I can't believe this. I'm the PB&J queen. NEVER!

I am the mother of "Mr. Picky" who has had a peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich (has to be grape) since the first day of kindergarten and he just started high school.  The only time he won't eat his PB&J is if it has been in the refrigerator from the night before. It just ruins his whole day!!! :)

Don't worry, I don't "spoil" him by throwing his boring sandwich together, as he has a sib in elementary school that I have to do up lunch for anyway. Besides, if he had to do it, he'd miss the bus every morning, instead of 3 mornings a week.

I think if I packed a ham sandwich in his lunch one day or had the audacity to put his precious PB&J on WHEAT BREAD, he would probably speak to me less than he does now..

That happened to me once... guns drawn out in front yard..
lived in a track house, so houses were real close together.  Turns out the single woman living next door who seemed to have no end to her money to buy nice stuff was running a racket out of her house, somehow tapping into computers in warehouses for big companies and having merchandise like applicances and computers sent to people without them having been paid for.  FBI surrounded the place, digging in trash, etc.  They finally got her and she went to federal prison for a while, then came back and skipped parole and they were back for her again.  Weird.
Leo...must be *queen* of the jungle...

What a drama queen. sm
You do not one, but two posts about what sounds like an allergic reaction, even maybe progressing to an anaphylactic reaction, ask a couple different times if your husband needs to see a doctor, etc., and then you tell the people who replied to you that they're panic ridden?

Silly old goose.
Yikes, did anyone get to see Meatloaf on AI?
What the heck happened there?  Was that a song of his?  He was awful. Poor Kat...she just isn't getting a break, is she?
I would like to see Queen Latifah ...
take her place.
I have the Triquetra tattooed on my lower back with purple roses...
Meatloaf was awful, he must have problems.
I didn't think Tony Braxton did that well either with Taylor. It almost looked like she was lip-syncing and (IMO) I though she acted like a drag queen. It just wasn't good.

All in all though, the Idols sounded great last night! WAY TO GO TAYLOR!!!
I love Queen Latifah!!! nm

Care to share the recipe for the meatloaf?
MEATLOAF wrote and sang that song
Celine Dion did it close to 20 years later - Meatloaf has always been like he is - even when he was younger.
Ranch Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

I don't know about you...but I get sick of the same old thing for dinner...uggghhh  Try this...last night my family was the trial and gave the verdict....mmmm..mmmm...good....ENJOY

Ranch Turkey Meatloaf

2 eggs

3/4 c. of ranch flavored tortilla chips (crushed into small pieces)

3 Tbsp. Salsa (I used mild...depends on how spicy you like things)

2 Tbsp. Ranch Salad dressing...(I only use Kraft...but I am sure you can use any other kind of Ranch dressing)

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. poultry seasoning

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 lb. ground turkey

Mix all the ingredients together....until you get a meatloaf consistency.  Then put into a baking dish and bake @ 350 degrees for one hour.  Serve this with salsa and sour cream (strictly your preference) but dipping in the salsa and sour cream just enhances the turkey loaf...  ENJOY!!!

Let me know what you think...

MMMM, I love pierogies, beets, and meatloaf.
Hubby doesn't, so I only cook it when he's gone.  (Which is never, lately!  LOL)
I saw Meatloaf a couple years ago on a news show and...
he looked GREAT.   I guess he had had a heart attack and had lost tons of weight and was taking care of himself.  Apparently he's back on the McDonalds because he looked very heavy and not well at all.  Too bad.  He used to have a great sound back in the day.
Absolutely - woke up this morning to a dozen of long stem red roses, box of candy and cards from my
Beautiful day! Everything was sitting out on my dining room table for me when I woke up. Hubby had already left for work and teens getting ready for school. Plus, my coffee was already made and bagel in the toaster for me.

I am blessed!
Meatloaf, baked potatoes, salad and blackberry cobbler.
Not exactly low carb, low fat, just plain old comfort food. 
Ditto this. I'm the family's official "deviled egg queen" for every holiday.
I always make them the day before and Saran Wrap them into my special crystal egg platter, but any plastic or glass dish will do.  How many days until Thanksgiving now?  LOL
cheeseburger meatloaf and peanut banana gooy cake. nm
Wow, you'd be the popularity queen at the state penitentiary! Reach for those stars!
Oh Yeah, me too! I love the Queen! I hadn't thought of her, but she'd be great. nm
Turn off the soap opera network and get a clue, drama queen!
That's what a lot of you around here do, find drama in otherwise innocent posts.  Get a life, get back to work.  And above all else, you call me a hypocrite and yet you sit in judgment of me.
Any rose gardeners out there? Good roses that are disease proof and smell good?
I heard good things about Knockout Rose but they don't smell too much like traditional rose.  Supposedly blooms all season. 
Say it loud!!
So true, so true.....
and let us not forget the nonresponsive e-mails when one does inquire as to where their lines are going. Take the old server down here and there and lose 300 LINES A DAY. YES, WE LOVE IT! NOT
Laughing Out Loud. nm
Then for CRYING OUT LOUD.....
Let HIM worry about this.  How and why do you think it's YOUR problem!!   They're paying you to transcribe, not to breast feed/babysit them.  Learn to pull that monkey off your back and put it on the back where it belongs, would you??????????????????  I swear, this is the last air head post I'm ever going to read or respond to on this ridiculous board. 
No loud music at all. It is more sm

like soothing music you would get with yoga.  A lot of people like Windsor Pilates.  I personally did not care for them.  I LOVE Denise Austin's pilates DVDs.  I have a couple.  One has a 30-minute workout and then I have one that is Hit the Spot in which the work outs are only 10 minutes.  I will do one of the core or abdomen ones in the a.m. and then do a lower bod one later in the day. 

Pilates do wonders for your strength, toning, flexibility.  I have been doing them off and on for years.  If I stop doing them for a few months and come back, I can tell the different in my flexibility and strength in just about 4 work outs.  I do them about 3 times a week.

LOL=laughing out loud (nm)
Just thinking out loud...
I live within walking distance of a hospital and am occasionally curious (like when I'm having an especially bad night transcribing) regarding what kind of jobs are available there, clerical-wise, though I haven't actually checked it out. I worked in house at a now-defunct hospital for 18 years as a transcriber/lab secretary and have been at home now for 12 years transcribing for 2 national companies. I feel woefully out of it regarding what goes on in hospitals these days. I'll have to say I did better overall financially transcribing in-house but frankly will never miss the office atmosphere. Frankly just hoping to hang in there another 10 years till I can retire but realize I'm gonna have to learn some different skill sets no matter what. I do believe my working second shift has always been a smart move, looks to me like way too many people competing for lines during the day. I have almost never run out of work on second shift. Not really interested in coding, either; I do enjoy transcribing. Maybe unit clerk (?) if that job title still exists? Anyway, will have to check this out.
I almost laughed out loud at what he did.
This has happened to me many times before as well. And I am always disgusted. I think that I laughed to myself because in my mind I could hear the belch, nice and juicy, and know how typically disgusting this is of these guys. Uggg. I am sorry for you, and feel for you. But it actually lightened up my day to think that I am not alone in this job. Hope your dictators are better the rest of the day.
OMG! laughed right out loud at this one sm

brand spanking new PA student dictating for the first time this week! (hoo-boy).  I thought I heard her wrong when she said "uncontributory" (I didn't), but I about fell on the floor when she gave me.....wait for it......

"no ee-lik-it drug use"  BWAAAAAAAHHAAAAAA. 

Oh, for crying out loud, let it go. nm
it's the old thing, say it long enough, loud enough,

propaganda becomes "truth" to some who can't think for themselves.  Either that, or throw out a zillion reasons why the heinous act was done to make it "sound" good, like he is a "liberator."  OMG, too funny to even think that shrub is a liberator...shrub a liberator....too funny!

For crying out loud, it's a job. Don't take it personal.
Or a whole paragraph! Yes, I have actually cussed out loud!
We should get paid for this! It is our time and money!
loud-mouth neighbor
ooooooooooo, I would love 1 minute alone with your neighbor!!!!
I hear you loud and clear - sm....
I'm handing out walking papers today  to a very large practice for those exact reasons, coupled with the fact the docs dictate past the speed of sound  and their OM and medical records girl are - well, let's just say a celery stalk has more intelligence than both of them combined.  They all disgust me  and I don't want their account, not for ANY amount of money! 
lol=laughing out loud, tia= thanks in advance
I hear you loud and clear! sm
I am feeling the EXACT same way as you. The eagerness is apparently just for show, the skill level is well below actual ability and the expectation level regarding pay is beyond reality. I know there are LOTS of good MTs out there but most of them are already employed in jobs that are fulfilling their needs. We're now looking at a lot of wannabes who don't understand what it takes to be successful in this business.
Volume is fine--it was too loud though.
I have volume controls everywhere...on speakers, on keyboard itself, on GearPlayer, and of course on the Windows "master volume" control.  I wasted so much time trying to tweak each one of those only to learn (from your awesome post) that it was the friggin' speakers! 
If the problem is the loud volume you
have to keep it at to hear, there are some really good headphones out there that actually cancel outside noise so you can hear the dictator without having to keep turning it up.

Sometimes it gets like that here- last night it seemed like there were 4 different conversations going on on either side of me (and loud) and then the girl in the next cubicle's cell phone kept ringing and ringing because she wasn't there to answer it (and it was a very loud obnoxious ring). I was on total sensory overload and about ready to scream! I am thinking of getting these headphones myself- they run about 30 to 40 bucks but I guess they are worth it.
That made me laugh out loud
15 blanks! I laughed out loud. Because, I had one which I think was 20 LOL. Well, it was worthwhile...I typed a lot of discharges for people who wanted to go home to their family and hopefully those stats got out in time. There ended up really being only 1 ESL that was horrible. When I got back on later in the day, it was not so bad. Maybe the turkey brain food helped my hearing. :)
I laughed out loud for 5 minutes.
Thank you!
