This year though the hubby was the one to participate in the early morning day-after-Thanksgiving shopping madness. One of the comic book stores he frequents was having a special for one hour only (6am to 7am). He was told to get there early (like at 5am) because of the crowds. I kept teasing him when he told me this and when we mentioned it to the family they also got a chuckle. I just could not see how anyone would go to the comic book store that early.
The hubby got up early on Friday and was out the door by 5am. He came home a couple of hours later. We live about 2 miles (if that) from the store. He said when he got to the store there were already 6 people in line. Shortly after he arrived, he says that the crowd showed up. By the time the store opened there were about 50 people in line! I have been to that store, I don't even think that many people can fit inside.
I admit it. I was SO wrong. But I guess if it had been the scrapbook store having the same kind of sale I would have been there just as early. LOL!

Life has been such a whirlwind lately. I actually have stuff that I want to post and I even started writing what I wanted to say but just like the picture, there is a big pile in my mind and I think I need to decompress and sort it all out before hand so that it actually makes sense. See.....how is that for the longest sentence ever?
My poor blog.....I think I am out of blogging practice.

I got the good news today.
I am approved for 75% reimbursement for my continuing education instead of the regular 50%. :)
I have to take some specialty courses for my job. The courses will teach me how to do my job (correctly) and how to run the entire registry. Courses that are definitely needed as I have been teaching myself, plus they are required to be completed before I can be certified. And of course.....certification is a requirement to me keeping my job. Go figure.
In order for a person to qualify for the higher reimbursement their position must be considered hard to fill. Surprisingly my position was not listed. This is very interesting since there is only one of these positions in the entire hospital and it did take them over 2-years to fill it.
Oh and here is a tidbit of info for you....hospitals are required by law to have a registry. There is a deadline for when cases need to be completed. If these cases are not completed then the hospital will lose its license. Talk about being under pressure to learn as fast as I can.
I just hope I can finish 150 weeks of courses in 28 weeks. I guess I had better get started. Wish me luck!
