2 Months

Well, it's been 2 months now and I'm really missing my own place. As I have said before you never know how much you miss something until it's gone. What do I miss the most my own quiet place. There is nowhere to go here and just enjoy a quiet moment. Even if you go to the bathroom you can bet someone is going to need in. :) 

Work is going ok. Wow, so much too learn. I work for a great company called VA Premier. We are a HMO for Medicaid. I am on the phone for 8 hours a day verifying information for the providers or helping the members with pcp changes etc.. The first few days were awful. I absolutely hated it and almost wanted to cry a few times BUT I knew no matter what I would not quit. Well, long story short the person training me was ok but made me very uncomfortable. They were out today and someone else sat in with me today and what a difference a trainer can make. My nerves were calmer and I actually had a much better day. I think once I get everything down I will feel better. 

Tomorrow I will be another year older. I think back to where I was a year ago and wonder where will I be a year from now. I can only hope and pray things just get better from here on and that my birthday is just the beginning. I'm definetly learning to be more patient. I will say these past few months have really changed me and my whole family. We have learned to be more thankful for what we have and know we can live without a lot of our wants. Now I will focus on what's yet to come. Thanks again for always including me and my family in your prayers.

Just wanted to be one of the first to wish you a Happy Birthday tomorrow! I use to work in a call center. I was there for 7 years and there were good days and bad. I agree it all depends on who is training you. I hope it gets better. *hugs*

Take Care,
Debbie

Hang in there. I'm still praying that things work out for you and your family. It sounds like things are somewhat better.

I know how it is to have a bad trainer at work. When I first started I had a terrible nurse train me one night...I was so thankful it was one night and had different nurses the other nights. It makes such a difference.

Happy Birthday to you! Do you have any plans? I wish only the best for you! It's my dad's birthday on Friday as well. :)

Donna, happy birthday to you! I hope your day was the greatest. You are right about being thankful each day for what we have and not take anything for granted. There is always hope in our lives, we just have to wait for His time.. I know next week will be a better week at the job. Each day gets better. Have a good one. Sherie
