SOMETIMES YOU SIMPLY MUST BE THANKFUL... AND FRIDAY LINKS

Sometimes you simply must be thankful...I had a bad day at work yesterday what made it even worse is it was fixed by a simple solution that I did not have the forsight to recognize.. I know how to do my work on my server at the office.. we use the server as the pc.. but the technical stuff I am clueless on.. when I attempted to print something thats when the battery back up alarm went off.. I researched on the internet until I found the company who makes this batter back up surge protector... I called for help.. they told me what to do and I did it.. I was also told we needed a new battery in it.. then I was told we needed a new unit itself.. my bosses husband comes in and finds that the box is attatched to a extension cord behind the pc.. I did not know that.. so he unplugs it from there.. then he plugs it all back in. resetting everything.. no one told me to unplug it from the wall.. any how for the whole day that damn thing had that high pitched continious beep going off.. it was terrible.. Then I had major insurance issues to deal with for a patient.. the insurance Medicare and BCBS said the patient needs to handle it.. so I turned it back to the patient.. and I think she is mad at me.. FOLKS YA GOTTA DEAL WITH YOUR OWN INSURANCE.. that I did not fix it for her.. been working on this since december.. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH of my time... On my way home last night I am chatting on my cellphone with a good friend talking about my day she is in the medical profession too so she understood how I felt.. the road I go home on is a two lane road.. its a busy road too.. I am driving along at the speed limit 50 miles an hour.. I see traffic approaching me.. there is a truck in my lane so much so in my lane that I am having to go off the road has he approaches.. I lost it .. I started crying to my friend.. and saying someone has it in for me today.. I thought I was having a heart attack too.. my chest hurt so bad from the sheer fear.. when I told Steve how I reacted.. slowing down.. moving over a little at time.. but I did swerve back to get back on the road fully.... he said I handled it well.. I must have .. I am not dead.. I said to my friend on the phone she almost heard me in a head on collision.. she knew .. or at best I would have gone off road into some trees.. I said to her you almost heard me die.. or crash.. thank god it was over.. fast.. but it is lingering in my mind.. .. stayed on the phone with my friend until I was safe at home.. ..
So today is another day... I have decided to do my links on recipes... Enjoy!!

Lady T said...

oh sweetie!

so glad you are ok and made it thru....

i had a similiar day like that the other week. after work on my way home, i slammed on brakes to keep from hitting the car ahead and since it was raining, my car skidded...and skidded and barely stopped at their bumper.

i had had such an AWFUL day, i started to sob. big giant, fat quivering sobs.....

so i can relate. and aren't u glad u made it thru?

Blessings!

Wow, you had a pretty stressful day.

I can't believe the way some people drive though, makes me want to stay off the road.

Gosh! How scary! Glad you didn't get hurt!
So, I read you are in health care. What do you do?
I was in Health Care for many years on the Insurance end.
First doing the Adjudication (paying or denying the claims) then years later moving into the Collections end and fixing posting errors/billing etc.
It about gave me a breakdown in 2005.
I dealt a lot with BCBS, Group Health, United Health Care and a bunch of other ones.
I am so happy that you get to go on your trip soon and hopefully take some well deserved time for yourself!
Oh and of course -get your "swing" back!
:)
