Last month my girlfriend finally finished a two year technical school program so that she can be a medical assistant. They had their graduation and she invited me to come, since her mother lives so far away and couldn’t make it up here for the ceremony. I was delighted to go – it was not boring at all. I found it rather inspiring to see all the young people – and a few older ones, as well all lined up in graduation robes and hats to get their diplomas. It really was an honor to be invited.

One thing I never realized is that the people in the doctors offices have to buy their own scrubs, lab coats and nursing uniforms. I don’t know why, but I guess I always assumed that the doctor’s office and hospitals provided those for the employees. Most of the other industries that I know of that require employees to wear uniforms provide them to the employees. But I guess with the medical industry they cannot afford to provide uniforms for everyone. Just keeping up with a huge wardrobe in all those different sizes would be a nightmare.

My girlfriend says that she will buy medical scrubs online to not only save money but to get some new colors, prints and styles that are not easily found in the local uniform stores.

Check out blueskyscrubs.com if you want to see a great selection of scrubs at very good prices. This is where my girlfriend says she shops and finds some pretty good selections and decent prices that fit into her budget.

I’ve often thought about changing my career path. Furthering one’s education is a big thing these days, but I’m not so sure that I’m up to that task right now. I know that most classes can be done online these days, which is a great alternative to actually attending a formal class room and all, but it still takes time and concentration, two things that I’m seriously lacking these past few years. If I did take some classes I would like to entertain the thought of going in medical billing.

There is a need for folks to do this type of work and many companies that offer complete medical billing for physicians and health care providers as well as testing facilities. They all rely on outside sources for their accounts receivable management, collections, complete medical billing services and I’d like to get in on all of that action. There will always be a need for medical attention, it is a pretty safe bet to be in the medical profession one way or another.

I have a friend who has been in this medical billing field for several years and is happy with the position and the pay. She is now trying to get certified in order to move up the ladder, so there are ways to advance in this ever growing field.

Too bad that May Day isn’t celebrated with the May Pole anymore. What a fun way to celebrate the start of a wonderful warm spring season, the month of May is definitely my favorite of all.

Cinco de Mayo however is a huge event, it is most unfortunate that this Boston Bombing scare is going to impact a lot of the usual celebrations and festivities this year, sigh…..

It seems that when I get the yogadirect yoga ball that I ordered last week online, I will have just about everything that I think that I need to start taking the yoga classes that I have been seriously eyeballing for some time now. The new Wellness Center in town has become the place to go for so many health and fitness needs and I don’t want to be left out. I all ready do yoga each morning before heading out the door. But I am seriously limited with time and space, so I need to get some type of routine going on, as well as learn some new things, instead of doing the same ol’ same ol’ all the time.

I know that you can get all kinds of yoga information on DVDs as well as online. But I think I would enjoy a class along with other people instead of always in my tiny little living room. The carpet needs to be cleaned and I just keep putting that task off due to other issues needing tending to since Spring is finally here and in full swing. So much to do inside and out, this time of the year.

I love going to the flea markets that will be in full swing next month if by then the weather has finally made it possible for people to set up outside. I always enjoy getting outside, getting some fresh air, and the exercise is certainly welcomed as well. I find the vendors are very nice and are usually willing to give good bargains if you approach them with a kind word and don’t insult their intelligence and integrity. I can never figure out how some people will come up to them and ask if they will take such a small amount and expect them to just smile and take it. If someone is asking $20 for an item, to ask if they will take $5 for it is an insult. I see it time and time again and it just¬†blows me away when they get upset when denied their request!

Anyway, I have had my eyes on one dealer that sells rugs, mainly area rugs. He has been setting up there for years and I have spent a good amount of time looking at his assortment of rugs and talking with him, he is a very nice man and I always look forward to seeing and talking with him when I have a Saturday to spend at the flea market.¬† Last Saturday, since it was so nice outside, I went to the flea market and noticed that he wasn’t there. I was told that he had experienced bad health lately and was in the hospital. I couldn’t get a lot of details but it apparently has something to do with his heart. I asked the vendor that sets up next to him to relay a message to him that I had stopped by and inquired about him. And asked that he be told that I wish him the best of luck and a speedy recovery.
