I haven't gotten any notices for our group this week and have been so busy with homework, I never came in to check. Have a lot of catching up to do.
It has been raining here off and on all week and now it has been steadily coming down since yesterday. A little bit of thunder and lightning too. It's only 48 degrees right now!
I had my classes this week, on Mon and Thurs. Both teachers are great but what a lot of work getting things up and running and figuring out how it all works. We have to submit homework, quizzes and other work online. Quite a few frustrating days with the work...my memory is not what it used to be.
With medical terminology, each chapter takes about 3 hours to read and then you do the questions which takes another hour, then they have practice quizzes online and then the actual quiz. I have to look up each answer after reading the chapter...we not only have to remember the meanings to all the new words but how to spell them and with all the vowel combinations, root words, prefixes and suffixes, its very confusing. One girl in my class said it only takes her a 1/2 hour to read the chapters and then after talking to her, I realized she is like my nephew, has aspbergers syndrome which is a very high functioning form of autism, sort of like Rainman. So she can remember the info quickly and easily! The other 2 ladies in the class haven't even bought their books yet and are far behind. The teacher did say it does take about the amount of time I'm spending on each chapter.
I also had an appointment with Health and Human services this week to see if I could get some assistance with my medical bills...to help me cover what insurance doesn't. But I'm not eligible because of the 1 life insurance policy and my IRA. They see them as assets I could cash in which I'm not going to do anyway as they are too important. The IRA can't be touched till I'm 65 or they penalize you for taking it early.
So I just have to hang in there till next year when I'll be eligible for Medicare. I just don't know how much my premiums are going to go up once Obamacare kicks in.
Anyway, lots to do today so better get moving. Enjoy your Saturday!
