Tonight was the second night of the Emblem of Love SAL. I really love working on this project. It took forever to stitch the tree, but I did manage to get the first medallion finished now - a sweet little bluebird in an apple tree... makes me think, "awwwwwww." LOL. My scan is a little crooked, but what else is new!!
Thank you to everyone who offered me a lot of support with my record review today. I am really pleased to let you know it went extremely well. I was nervous at first. They only sent one reviewer out, and when I saw who it was, I was pretty disappointed. I didn't get the best vibe off of this guy when he was my area case manager a couple of years ago. And, since they sent one reviewer, not two, I couldn't kind of eavesdrop and try to get a sense of how the review was going. Unfortunately, he didn't have a habit of talking to himself either. I was a bit at ease that he was not bringing any of the 15 client charts I gave him back to me asking for missing items. That is never a good sign when they do that! And, he was due to review until 12:30, but he approached me at noon to say he was ready. He gave me a very quick summary. No charge backs and no correction plans needed - very good review! The only things he came up with was having me add new things to forms - things I never could have even guessed about... so I figure I won't see them for another couple of years now :-) And, I get a rate increase that is retroactive to July 31st. I already knew I got that a couple of weeks ago, but today's news helped me to really realize that all is well!
**** Anyone know anyone who can play baseball?? The Red Sox really, really need your help if you do! They are a walking MASH unit - who isn't hurt or down with the stomach flu at this point?? I can't think of any of them that don't fit into either or both of those two categories - yikes!!!! What horrible luck for them this year! They aren't even playing at a contending level any longer.
