"When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike you, do not wait until he has struck before you crush him. " Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945)
So My day consisted of pretty much nothing except doctors offices yesterday. What an annoying process! Through the course of some changes this past year, our little family has been blessed with double coverage insurance for a few months. WOO-HOO, right! I was totally pumped about this in the beginning, even jokingly wishing that something big but minor and non life threatening would happen to myself of the husband.(spare the kids right?) I wanted to use this double insurance, I imagined in my mind how incredibly satisfying it would be to not only whip out 2 insurance cards at the receptionist desk but to see that infamous doctor bill come back with the words printed at the bottom...You owe this amount...$0.00!!! I jokingly said these things for the first week we had this glorious double coverage... that is until I got a phone call from my husband late one evening after out practicing for his upcoming snowmachine, or snowmobile race for all of you in the rest of the world. We call it a snowmachine up here in the great north, and no I don't mean it makes snow!!! Anyways he called me and said that he had good news and he had bad news....UH_OH. The good news was he was still alive and the bad news was that he thought he may have broken his back!!!! Yeah...joking OVER! I said I wanted minor...non life threatening!!! Funny thing as we were hobbling him into the ER he looked at me and said..."this is your fault". I said" WHAT! How is this my fault!" He replied with a smile on his face," you are the one who wanted to use this double coverage insurance!" HAHA.... quite the jokester. A few hours later, a lot of tests, and a hefty bill that I didn't have to pay any of I might add... He was released with a clean bill of health, just major bumps and bruises and maybe a cracked rib or two, no broken back...THANK YOU LORD! Ok, Ok ... back to why I was in the doctor all day yesterday... being the thrifty bargain mommy that I am, our double coverage ends the end of the month and being the horrible procrastinator I am I waited until now to get all dentist, doctor and whatever else I could think to squish into this last month! Frustrating though because you never walk out of the doctor office being done, we are always referred to another specialist or need another X-ray or something. It seems to be just an on-going process. GRRRR.... I guess it's ok with me as long as we get it all done by the end of the month, and the bottom of the page says, You owe this amount...$0.00!!! HAHA!
