7- Quick Takes Friday the Saturday edition

Join Jen and the other Quicktakers over at the Conversion Diary.>
1. My plans to work for another transcription company may now be over. It was 1 cent less per line, but it was A LOT more work. Despite sending in my resume with all of my experience, I was doing a lot of nephrology transcription, which I have never done before in my life! and apparently after 20 days or so they weren't happy with how I was progressing. So I don't know. It's been my experience in the past that if a supervisor decides you're not working out, it doesn't do much good to try to prove them wrong.

2. Interestingly I am not upset with this development. I was becoming a part-time homeschooler and a full-time transcriptionist and at this point in my life, that's not what I'm looking for.

3. My other transcription work is backed up so I will be spending a lot of time working on those this weekend PLUS getting ready for Sam's 16th birthday party!

4. I will have a house full of teenagers in about 4 hours. I can't believe it!

5. I played my flute for confirmation last night. Sam and Gabe sang for it too. It was nice, but it got me thinking that next year will be Gabe's turn to be confirmed. He has Soooo much work to do between now and then.

6. Mr. Pete spent two hours on the phone yesterday having a teleconference with two attorneys in New Mexico and my evil first cousin. I am really impressed with how Mr. Pete familiarized himself with all of the paper work and properties involved in this trust from my father. He thinks he has both attorneys thinking that the two options he proposed were reasonable. My evil first cousin (EFC) didn't like any of it, because it doesn't leave everything to her without question. Anyway, I'm really proud of my husband for tackling this because my sister and I have pretty much abdicated. It seemed too hopeless to ever settle, and EFC seemed to devious to ever conquer. But now I'm having some hope.

7. I discovered that in my circle of close friends, I am the ONLY one who has not gone through menopause yet. Of course, I was the last to start my family too and I also was the oldest to have a baby at 46. So maybe that has something to do with it.

OK, so now I'm into heavy party prep - have a great weekend!
