Thursday, December 22, 2011


I must admit that I haven't blogged in a while because I have been in a pretty dark place! I am so afraid of failing with weight loss again!  Today, I came home to my secret Santa gift!!!! A beautiful black wrap sweater-which I have been wanting!!! AND this amazingly sweet secret Santa included gifts for Marcus (he was all over the doggie treats already) and something for Mya - she hasn't opened hers yet because she is still at soccer!!! That was so so sweet of you to include them!!!! You are awesome and truly made me feel special!!!! Thank you for helping me remember that I am not alone on this journey!!! Xoxo

Blogland - I need your help!

sorry - this has nothing to do with weight loss!  Is anyone out there a medical biller/coder?  I need to "interview" someone for my health care finance masters class.  Really, I just need the answer to the following question.

What is the process that you go through to make sure that reimbursement requirements are satisfied for billing purposes?

Thank you a million times over for anyone that can help!!!

It’s Friday so it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer a few questions in order to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

Let’s do a little themed version of where you live and why!

1. Describe the structure you live in. (apartment, condo, house, mansion, cardboard box?)

I live in a 1 story approx 1900 sq. ft house – it has 3 bed rooms and a den.  Open living area.

2. Describe the city you live in. (population, main attractions)

I live in Goodyear – it is a suburb of Phoenix I guess.  Out here everything flows into one gigantic city.  You have anything and everything.

3. Why do you live in the town you live in? (job, to get away from a different town, family, schools?)

We live here because both my family and my husband’s family are here.  I was born and raised here. Now that Mya is almost 10, she is pretty rooted here as well.  I would love to move somewhere with actual seasons.  I really want change but at the same time it scares me.

4. What’s the view like from your backyard?

Pool, desert landscaping and a block fence.

5. Repeat question: How has your week been in blogland and in real life?

I am pretty stressed in real life.  Per usual, I hate my job.  It is not even that I hate the job it is that my boss has no morals or conscience.  I am not like that and I have a really hard time being around those who lack any sort of respect for others.  My daughter has been pretty sick and she went to the allergist/ENT yesterday.  They are sending her for a CT on Monday for her sinuses because they believe that she has a chronic infection.  If she does, they will do a 28 day course of antibiotics.  :(  Other than that, just getting ready for Christmas. 

I am so behind on reading blogs!!  And commenting, I am sorry!!!
