Oh my goodness! I hope all is well.

Addie, I try to go to the ATM every Friday and withdraw the money for the week, as if it were a paycheck, to last us until the next Friday. But DH knows that the rest of the money is sitting in the bank account and it kills him not to take it out and spend it. I keep asking "What happens when we run out in the middle of the month" and he doesn't have an answer. He knows my way works!

I am still waiting around the hospital because my blood levels are low. Good news though, the kids and mom are together in their own home. They may be up to see me later. They will definitely be part of our lives now.

Picked up Beagle from the vet, she had her teeth cleaned and is still a little groggy. She also got a mani-pedi. She's crashed out in her sunbeam now.

Bummer. What are you waiting for?

We're driving back home from the in-laws'. We'll be spending the night in West Virginia. I was just looking up a place to eat dinner on Yelp. The Dish Café in Daniels sounds good.

The doctor just came by and has ordered more blood work in 2 hours. if it is up I go home if it's down I go back into surgery. He thinks it will be okay.

Dawg, I used to have a sunbeam I could crash on! Midnight (first kitty) and I would lay on the living room floor every morning after the kids went off to school. Nowadays I have neither a kitty to lay with nor the flexibility to get up off the floor without using too much effort!

I'm catching my breath between laundry and bill issues. I got two collection notices! One was an *oops* on the part of the doctor's office and I had proof that I should not be showing a balance owing. The collection agency said that bill had been cleared up through an internal credit AND I made "Zack" promise that I will get a letter stating that same thing. The other? *sigh* The service was rendered 5-2013, but the danged hospital didn't send us a bill until 3-2014! By that time our COBRA had ended and our insurance provider had changed. With a long history of insurance payments being made for these lab services in the past I asked the hospital to request a re-submission because I thought the bill sent the insurance company might have been encoded wrong. Did they? Nope, they went ahead and send us a second bill and then passed it on to the collection agency before I could call again to see why they weren't doing their job! "Zack" said he'd made sure to get it re-submitted and we'll go from there. I have no objection to paying for a bill we rightfully owe, but my past experiences with these bills lead me to believe we should be paying no more than half of the $190. Um, maybe all of that should have been put in the petty vents thread?

Now it's off to prep a few things for supper. I get happy when I cook and eat!

Being fairly artistic, colours are important to me. I didn't realise that when I planted a pink hydrangea plant near a japanese acer (dark red/copper leaves) that it would be a bit of a colour clash. It has settled in so didn't want to uproot it.

I thought something blue inbetween these 2 clashing coloured plants would be a good idea. However, I couldn't get blue flowers to grow inbetween them so I hit on the idea of covering a long wooden post with some bright blue cloth to go inbetween them and be complimentary! Result!

You don't want to rush home with that problem hanging over your head. Been there, done that. And paid for it the next day. Got rushed back in and instead of the one pint they wanted to give me and I refused, I ended up needing two.
