Good morning I have a few minutes ansd I thought I would let you know I had an interview with a dentist yesterday and he wants me to try it out to see if I would like the position. I will be doing clerical work. This is going to be strange but he doesn't use computer's he has them write everything manually. But that is ok. I am fine with it.

My lawery called on sunday to say it can take up to 90 days or more for the judge. So I have to wait some more. Well I have no time to wait for disability and I am going to work. Well I have to get going. Wish me luck!!! Sam

Hi Sam,

I'm glad your lawyer finally called you back. It's amazing to me how long this takes. Then again, I suppose the feds really don't want to dish out anymore money than they have to, so they take their time. Although I've heard it's retroactive, so I guess that doesn't make sense either. Regardless, I do hope you here something soon.

Can't wait to find out if you get the job or not - you sure are determined!!
Warm and gentle hugs,

Sam,
I hope everything FINALLY works out for you. Let us know how you job goes. Of course I have to say that I'm shocked that there is someone out there running a business without a computer. :o

Hi Sam,
I'm glad you heard from your lawyer, but wish it would have been with news like It's over. You got your disability!!! But I sure give you credit for getting out there and going after a job. Be sure to keep yourself rested.

Hey, maybe this will work out that if/when your disability comes through, you could still work at the dental office part time. I think there is a minimum dollar amount you can make while on disability since disability isn't exactly a huge amount of money!

Anyway, I hope you like it and try not to get writer's cramp!

xoxo emmie

Hi all! Well the job is going good and he finally hired me on Wednesday. Plus he had hired two more girls too. I had to go get scrubs to wear to work and BVR is going to reimburse me for them. so out of pocket I had paid nothing so far. I will buy more scrubs though I want more of a selection. They have alot of cute scrubs out. Well for the job, I wait on the patients, checked them call for the insurance benefits, filing and all the other stuff you do in an office. It is very tiring for me and it does take all my energy for this, but I keep telling myself its the right thing to do right now. Im lucky to have a husband who will cook dinner and help clean when needed. He knows it hard on me and he tries to help out. Well I'm gonna get going Howie fixed dinner for me tonight again. Sam
