REASON I'M TELLING them I'm buying house tomorrow

To answer post below, BF would love me to rent from him and stay here, but the idea is to get away from him,

I do not love him, he has a violent nature has wrecked things and has a history of wrecking things, is VERY short-tempered,

does not like my 16 y/o-has called her a bi**h-has said she needs to get off her fat a** and do something even though she babysits HIS kids so HE can do stuff, MAKES his supper when I'm working plus goes to school and does her homework.... He has said I should use the brain in my head and realize she needs to exercise and make her exercise more. Oh, and has called me a B**ch too, can't forget that part. Obviously is ALWAYS negative toward her, NEVER anything positive.

He whines and complains constantly. He complains and whines when dinner is not made. He complains over household chores not being done but of course he is unwilling to help because he is busy with work and this and that..and is TIRED! but whines when laundry isn't done etc, including his of course. He whines because he is so tired from work and so sore (he does construction). Doesn't matter that I went to bed a 3am and was up at 9 to take care of kids, etc, etc, have 3 PT jobs, etc etc.

He has a "do as I say but not what I do" motto with everything. He thinks he is the best looking, the best at EVERYTHING, the best in bed....OH Ya, that too. His ego is huge obviously. And of course, he says I could do worse. Oh Ya?

And obviously doesn't respect me. Sits on the couch with dirty clothes, walks on clean floors with dirty shoes, says bottoms aren't dirty, says back of his clothes aren't dirty...constantly does that...even had dirt clumps fall off his shoes and baby would pick them up wanting to eat them...that didn't even stop him. Doesn't pick up after himself, leaves garbage in kitchen with the basket 1 foot away and leaves wrappers...CANT stand that. I have 3 kids to pick up after, I don't need another that is 39 years old.

Okay, nuf' said about why I don't want to rent from BF? And I don't want to hear that it is a man thing and ALL men are like that cause I am sick of that excuse and ALL men AREN'T like that. I was not put on this earth to be a maid to someone who is supposed to love and care for me. Can't and won't do it.

Plus, got an email from supervisor at hospital today, she was wanting to know what hours I can work for fulltime. Looks like it may happen before the 1st of the year. Yeah!

Just got back from buying the dried peas - if it's cold tomorrow, pea soup for us
I love pea soup.
Buying a house sm

I need some advice. 

We're in the process of buying a home.  When we were searching today for quotes on a homeowners policy, we found out the home had $14,000 in water damage in 2003 and the insurance company (Farm Bureau) wouldn't insure it for us.  There was, however, one company who would insure it but for a really high premium.

We were supposed to close on the 25th.  I'm considering backing out of the deal because of this.  Would I be able to get my earnest money back since the seller didn't reveal in this in their disclosure?

Also, would you pay the higher premium and buy the house because maybe whatever caused the problem is fixed?

By the way, we haven't had the inspection yet.  It is to be done on Monday.




I tried to download it. It says do not file these copies for some reason. I'm going tomorrow to S
pick up the ONE stinkin' form I need from the federal building. Beats buying 50 at Office Depot!
Buying a house on an MT's pay, stupid or daring?
Put a couple hundred down for earnest money today. Not sure if it was the "right" thing to do, but will sure "feel" good if I can pull it off! Any other single moms out there have their own home?
Not MT related, need house buying info..sm
Does anyone know what you can do when your credit score isn't high enough to get 100% financing on a home.  I qualify for 80% financing but don't have 36k for a down payment.  Frustrating!
Yay, yay, yay, hallelujah. I finally get to interview for an in-house job tomorrow.

Oh I so hope and pray that it is as good as I need it to be! 

Excuse me? Arrogant for buying a house for a family member that was sm
about to become homeless? I think not. You sound like my ungrateful, jealous sister in law who can't stand anyone else to succeed. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. They were unfortunate at the time and we bailed them out! Ask them, they will tell you where they would be had my husband and I not put our credit on the line for them.
In some states, if buying house and married, both names are legally required to be on deed. (nm)
The only reason a dog would go in the house is if he was
That would be the fault of the owner NOT the dog!!
Being in-house is tough for this reason - you simply have to sit there.
For what reason would someone take a chance of breaking into someone's house to kill their 6-year
It was an inside job - Patsy did it.
Lucky thing for me my MD is in the office tomorrow morning, so I made an appointment for tomorrow.

If it is strep, I'll have her give me a shot of penicillin.  That's what I usually do for strep.  My stomach can't hardly handle taking antibiotics.  I end up with vomiting and diarrhea which makes me feel even worse!

Thing is, I work for a hospital and we already have one girl off indefinitely for medical reasons.  A couple of ladies didn't log on until late today because we had thunderstorms in the area.  And we are way, WAY out of TAT for OPs and Discharges.  So, I feel kind of bad taking a sick day.  My supervisor is so stressed.  She's been begging us to work OT for the last couple of weeks.  How can I call her and tell her I'm sick?

I'm halfway through my shift anyway.  I'll be all right.  The Motrin is really helping and then I can take it easy all weekend.

Thanks for listening.

I use an extra bedroom. Just bought a 4 bedroom house so I can have an office, for one reason.
Nice and cheery, sunny, comfortable and a room all to myself! Love my office.
Having one put on tomorrow...
after many years of thinking about it and finally finding the right picture.  I know it's going to be uncomfortable, but I'm ready to get it done. 
Looks like tomorrow is going to be
a good one too!
And tomorrow is 6/7/6, so what. nm
We can also die tomorrow...
I buy what I want when I want.  Credit card bills can't take your house.   Your credit score goes down and they hound you to death, but that's nothing.  I say live it up!  No, we didn't purchase the larger home because I didn't want to have to clean it!  We do have 2 brand new vehicles though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Lovin' it!!!!!!!!!!!!  This is what I work for everyday, not so I have to do without.  I do "with!!!!!"  I live and love and spend every day doing what I want to do and when I want to do it.....  Well, I guess I gave away the fact that I'm an IC with no restrictions or limitations. Hubs works and makes decent money, but even if I didn't have his income, we'd be just fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 
Buying new
The MT company I work for supplies my computer but I have account on the side from my home computer. I had a computer "cracker" here last week for a serious problem and he suggested I go on line and get a Gateway. Does anyone have any input?
After buying car after car and never really sm
having one completely paid off, I finally got into leasing. I traded for a lease car and had it for 4 years. It was in great shape, inside and out at the end of lease period. I took pictures of the car from all angles to cover myself. Then I "traded" that for another lease, the car which I have now. The payments for lease cars are the same as if you were buying one on loan. The higher the down payment on the lease, the lower the payments are. The longer the lease period, the lesser the monthly payments but there is also the interest charge to consider.

At the end of the lease, though, you have the option of trading it for another car or buying it outright. I leased my current car, a mini SUV, for 4 years with payments of $300 per month, then ended up buying it for $7K at the end of the lease period. I essentially paid the same amount leasing and buying this car as if I had a loan on it. Leasing is not cheap, but you always have a new car. With leasing, you get no equity in the vehicle. If you are a person who wants a new car all the time, then leasing might be good for you. I like a new car all the time, too, but the monthly payments are too hard on my budget. Also with a lease you are required to keep up with the maintenance of the vehicle--more so than if you owned it outright. I don't quite understand your statement about "low payment because you only pay for the amount of money it would depreciate for the time you own it." You never own it, and the monthly payments aren't low.

I hope this helps. I haven't had my caffeine yet.
before buying one...

You should maybe rent one for the weekend, drive it around, and see how you like it. I had a rental when my son wrecked his truck, a Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.  I fell absolutely in love and my hubby got me one for Christmas!

Renting one for the weekend will give you a pretty good idea if you're gonna like it or not. I personally have never owned a convertible, but did drive one (my bosses wife's car) and it was ok, though not that great...good luck!

Not buying it...sm

I didn't graduate from CS or from either of the other 2 schools considered the BIG 3. I had a recruiter from MQ call me the very week I passed my course.  My instructor gave them my name after I graduated.

And if you look on MQs website under FAQ, it states that under certain circumstances, they will accept candidates with less than 1 year experience if they graduated from ONE of the MT schools MQ has a relationship with.

Sorry. Not buying it.
You must work for the folks who are pushing this fiasco. I can tell you from first hand experience. It indeed DOES take longer or as long (just to be fair) to edit as it does to type it.
You are so right about buying there
I bought several items this year off Etsy for my Christmas presents, flower pens, individual painted flower cups for the ladies I gave to, have bought soaps there before, lots of stuff. I really like Etsy, some really nice things.
I'm not buying it.
These are just some of the incidents some of my Canadian friends have gone through:
1. My GF's husband decided he was still a teenager and went snowboarding, tore up his knee and had a 6-month wait for an MRI.
2. Same GF her best friend had an abnormal mammo. 3 months to get an ultrasound.
3. Ex boyfriend's ex-wife broke her leg while they were skiing. They kept her on Morphine from Friday until Monday because no orthopedic doc was available to do the surg.
4. Another GF of mine was on a specific type of thyroid medication that was the only one that they found worked for her. Then they decided it was not a covered drug anymore and she could no longer get it in Canada.
5. Another GF's husband needed cardioversion waited over a month to get it, meanwhile he was in horrible shape, legs and ankles swollen.

I'm sorry this is not acceptable patient care. The latest estimate is $1.3 trillion dollars to re-structure our health care the way Obama wants it restructured. Everyone puts Bush down for his "agenda" on Iraq no matter what the consequences. This is "Obama's" agenda. This country does not need another $1.3 trillion debt for future generations to have to try to pay off. JMHO.
Tomorrow is registration. First day Aug. 5 E.TN
I'm ready
Tomorrow will be brighter! nm
job interview tomorrow ... what do you think?

Hi all ... I'm going to a local hospital tomorrow for an interview.  The job is in the laboratory.  It's a f/t position where half the day you do pathology transcription and the other half secretarial work.  It's mon-fri, 9-5. 

This is in New York (the suburbs) actually, about 1/2 hour north of NYC.  I have 13  years of medical records transcription experience, and prior to that for 5+ years worked as a secretary to a medical director.

How much of a salary should I expect ?   Thanks! 


Anyone going out of town tomorrow?
I'm going to Cincinnati 2C my sisters! Yikes! Wish me luck...
Tomorrow is NEW YEAR'S EVE!
RU going 2 party like its 1999? Get totally plastered, watch balls drop, etc?
Thanks for your replies. I go to the doc tomorrow.

Find out more tomorrow.
I was told "full benefits" except dental (which my husband has), but I will get full details tomorrow during my interview. I haven't worked outside the home in so long; I think I am afraid to go back out there. Seems like a good offer from a large cardiology practice. I was told "starting at $15.00" so may have opportunity for increase there which I have never had at home.

How about tomorrow night???
e-mail me or post and let me know what time is good for everyone! I am in.
I'm sorry, is anybody buying this story? sm
part-time, 16,000 per pay period!!! Come on, I'm not buying this at all.
Buying local ....
Unfortunately, some of us don't live in areas that have a lot of choice. My town is tiny and we have a teensy WalMart that has items that (I really think this!) have been there waiting to be sold since the day it opened years ago! I buy from JC Penney's from a catalog outlet here in town (if they're open) or online, sometimes I shop in one of the larger neighboring cities. Frankly, unless I'm buying cotton or watermelon, it ain't happening here :-).

However, in defense of your statement, when I lived in a larger city and had variety (and choices!) I did shop in town more often than not. I miss those days LOL.
BOS is changed so you have to keep buying the new one--$$$$
Better off buying on Ebay.

I bought this computer and what a mess.  I was told that it was bought for her daughter just the previous year and still had the warranty.  She was going to transfer the warranty to my name. 

I thought that because I used paypal I would be safe, but that is only if you buy off of E-bay.  When I received the computer, it was a whole two years older than I was told and there was no longer any warranty.  The seller conveniently died a week after I received the computer.

So, if anyone contacts you about this computer, BEWARE. 

Just an FYI when buying it from another user
Be sure to notify Textware Solutions that you purchased it & who you purchased it from so we can update our records showing that you are now the licensed owner. This will ensure that you can receive technical support, discounted upgrades in the future, etc.
I usually stick with buying........
...mine from the tattoo shops.  However, I most recently bought one at one of those little jewelry stands in the mall and I haven't had any problems with it. 
No sense is buying anything until you have a job.
Transcribers are rarely used anymore unless you get a local account.  C-phones are still used occasionally, but most work is done using a foot pedal.  If a company requires a foot pedal to test you can use Express Scribe, which is free, and just use the hot keys.  I wouldn't want to use hot keys all the time, but they are fine for testing. 
ShortHand is $100. Get to try before buying it, too. nm
buying a laptop

Good morning.  I am just today going to buy a laptop and need some advice.  There are 2 I am looking at, a Dell and a Toshiba.  Any suggestions on which one to go with. 

I am planning a trip and do not want to take vacation days since my pay would be so much less by doing that.  Anybody that has done this, please give me any and all advice that would be helpful...  TIA!!!

buying computers
Do we have the option of buying the computers from Medquist and does anyone know how much they would want? I would just as soon use this one which is customized to my favorite websites instead of buying a new one- don't want to get in trouble for checking my email, doing banking, etc.  Do they offer the option to buy the towers from them versus returning them if you quit? I have only been with them for 3 months so my station is a newer build.

Noooo! That's like buying the cat in the bag!....nm
So why are you telling me this?
I already said mine are grown.  And don't be so quick to judge others.  You have no idea what circumstances others are in.  Judge not, lest you be judged.
I'm telling ya!
Gotta agree, but I worried that messing with the structure of his mouth might take away from that voice. It gives me goosebumps too!
You could certainly help us out by telling us what the...sm

platform was that turned out to be a low-line maker.....

And tell us the one that has been good too!!!


Thanks for telling me this!

I now have been contacted by four others who went through the same thing.  This will really help if they don't respond to the complaints I filed.  Thanks for taking the time to tell me.


So what you are telling me is...
I should just go ahead and apply at places states I have two years experience and test for them.  Then, I can get experience without any? Kinda?
The OP WAS telling it like it is.......nm
Keep telling it, maybe they will sm
listen to you. They are not listening to me! You said it exactly as it is. This is not a "school" career. It is by learning. Maybe the school gets you started, but it still takes years of learning.

I do feel sorry for the folks who went to these schools thinking that was all they needed because they really got taken advantage of. I don't know if any hospitals these days train folks or not. My opinion is if you have been in school then you need to go work in a hospital/medical center/teaching facility for several years before EVER trying to coming home and do this. you just cannot make any money at this working on production coming out of school. There is no way. Let me rephrase that, maybe you can but on a limited basis with an easy account, not a lot of foreign dictators, one or two work types etc. But, in order to do everything it takes YEARS!
I could give up cable tomorrow sm
I seriously only keep it for DH. The kids are fine without much TV and so am I. The only time I watch anything is when I ride my bike on the trainer or walk on the treadmill.

My favorite show of all time was Emergency! but I have most episodes on tape to watch that.
