Thanks again. I would have thought so too as the new book would definitely have rekindled interest in the previous one. Keeping my paws crossed that the ouse ad the book both sell quickly. Won't State medicaid step in for MIL if she has no funds and pay for her assisted living? My MIL will run out of funds in a few months and i will have to put her on state assistance as we sure don't have that kind of money to pay for her room either Assisted living is very expensive here in Bend - way more than it was in WA. . EVery assisted living facility has a state social worker assigned and that is the person I will go through to start the process. Was that way in WA and is in OR but I can't speak for other states. If you MIL's facility has an asigned social worker I would touch base with that person if you haven't already.
Hope the doc visit goes well. Aw geez, not a good financial time for you two and MIL :( Wish I could think of something else you could easily and quickly do from home. I do know medical transcription requires a lot of training and is pretty complex from working with them in the HR field at an Army hospital doing desk side interviews on their jobs Just listening to the garbledy garb from docs and trying to figure out what they said. So many medical terminologies sound almost the same but refer to different parts of the body so they have to learn anatomy to some extent so they know which is the right term depending on say the part of the body the surgeon operated on. Will keep thinking positive thoughts.
ED and been thinking. Have you looked into proofreading which is certainly something you can do from home and boy, you are experienced in that. I did a quick google search "proofreading from home" and there is stuff out there. But you would have to be to careful it is not one of those "pay us first and we'll find you a job" LOL Myabe contact some of the big publishing companies and see if they ever have "telecommuting" proofreading jobs.
AnimaLOL FP congrats! How are you doing? Still on the healing track? Takes time so be patient with yourself and don't overdo seeing as you're a bit of an overachiever :) . Been gone for a bit and getting ready to go on another trip again. Last long one of the summer
