I may have left out some details in my last hasty blog. I am not doing medical transcription forty hours a week . . . in fact, I am no longer doing any medical transcription at all since my other Internet job turned into a full-time job. I work as a Community Manager on a website for moms. When I began, I worked 12 hours a week. Those twelve hours turned into nineteen hours. Nineteen hours turned into twenty-nine hours. Then, remarkably, those twenty-nine hours became forty hours a week, complete with benefits and everything.

I have turned into the mythical stay-at-home mother who works full-time on her computer . . . you know when people ask, “Are there any legitimate work-at-home jobs?” Well, there was one. And I have it.

I absolutely love my job and I am so grateful to have it.

In other news, three boys are spending the night. How did this happen again? Every time I allow it I think, NEVER AGAIN. And then I relent. I’d rather they all be here driving me crazy than somewhere else doing who-knows-what.

And now, Six Weird Things About Me, a Meme brought to you courtesy of Smoov.

“THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the “6 weird things about you.” People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says “you are tagged” in their comments and tell them to read your blog.”

1. I hate raw tomatoes and Kraft macaroni and cheese.

2. Being too hot makes me crabby. I cannot think straight when I’m sweaty.

3. I am fascinated by Betty Broderick and watched not only the CourtTV coverage of her trial, but also the two television movies made about her which starred Meredith Baxter.

4. I used to consider whether I’d rather be deaf or blind. I alway chose deaf.

5. I have never been to a prom.

6. I own a lot of earrings but I always wear gold hoops.

And a bonus weird thing:

7. I like to sleep in a cold, completely dark room. Night lights keep me awake. Even a crack of light under a door will wake me up.

Oh, and I’m not tagging you but if you want to play, consider yourself tagged.

  1. Have you said what the website you work for is or are you not telling? Sorry maybe I missed this somehow? I am interested in a web site for moms….


  2. Mel, I’m so happy to hear about your job doing something you LOVE instead of one that just makes money, ha! Medical transcription is about as dry as it comes…I worked in hospital offices before…so I would’ve jumped at the job you’re doing now, too.


  3. I think its wonderful you have a full time job that keeps you at home. I hope one day mine will be that way. They are really leaning towards it now. Love your Meme post.


  4. What!? You’ve deserted the ranks of medical transcriptionists everywhere? Well, we’ll miss you! Although I’d give it up in a heartbeat for something FUN!

    I have to sleep in a completely dark room too, I can’t stand the slightest bit of light. My DH thinks I’m nuts. I also have to have closet doors shut – and one foot sticking out from under the covers. Neurotic? No, why do you ask?
