New Job!

First, just a prayer for all of those lost and left behind on September 11, 2001. I will never forget that day, I was still in highschool, in the music room and remember just sitting in a group, all holding hands, watching the television in the corner as the towers came down. I can't believe it's been 6 years. God bless every one of the people hurt by the worst tragedy of my lifetime.

Well, I know there's really no excuse for not posting for 10 whole days, but last week was sooooo crazy, stressful, emotionally draining... But it all ended in a good way! I have a new job! The whole reason I started going to school to become a health information coding specialist was because my best friend's mom showed me a picture of one of her AHIMA magazines of a young woman sitting on her bed in her pajamas with a coffee cup in her hand and a laptop in front of her. She told me, "Girly! If you're interested, there will be a multitude of opportunities waiting for you!" And boy, was she right!

I was certified in April, and it only took me 4 months to have 3 job offers that I didn't even go looking for. It was a hard ordeal, just because I really love the small hospital that I work for, but the opportunities are as small as the hospital. I will now be working for a national outsourcing company that has over 650 hospitals all around the US as clients. They send me my work through the internet every morning and I have until mid-night to finish it. How cool is that??? I am totally excited, and am already thinking of how I will decorate my new home-office!

This is a pic of Heather Bailey's studio and I love the colors and vibe. I think instead of the aqua, tho, I'm leaning towards brown in it's place. Yes, pinks and creams and browns... Like a big neopolitan ice-cream sandwich.

I've been playing with some of the sheet music from the New york Public Library's Digital Gallery... My favorite one is below. I have about 8 different ones so far. I think I'd blow them up to 8 x 10 and frame them all in the same frame and hang them over my desk, which I think I might get from IKEA on the 29th of this month. Now to find just the right color of pink for the walls!

What a great blog. Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I love it when people visit. You asked about the jar labels for Halloween.
Believe it or not...got'em at Michael's Craft Store. Bought the jars for .99 cents and just rubbed the labels on. The tags are tea stained and those labels are from the Martha Stewart collection. I just bought some fancy glitter, and you're done! Glad you like them. I hope you stop by again, I'll be back to visit, and by the way...congrat's on the new job!
