Yeah, I Guess I'm Just Complaining Here

March 20th, 2015 at 07:32 pm

I have got to start opening my mail earlier in the day. Yesterday I received 3 checks for the dentist from the insurance company. The insurance company pretends that it can't send the check directly to the dentist because he is not in network, which apparently means that the postal service won't take a check there or some such nonsense. And they write the checks so they have to be signed by both the dentist and whichever one of us is on it as well, which is fun when it is DH and he is in Alaska, and now that DD is 18 hers have to be signed by her.

They try to make it difficult so we will use one of their dentists. They have 3 dentists in our area all who work at a stupid strip mall dentistry. Um, no thanks. I will stick with my dentist and not play multiple dentists every time they change the list. So anyway, three checks came, one for me, one for DH, and one for DD. But I didn't open the mail until after the dentist's office had closed and by some universal law no dentist is ever open on Fridays, so that can't be taken care of until Monday.

And then I didn't open today's mail until 7 which is when the drive-thru at our credit union closes, but if I had, I would have been able to deposit the safe driver's rebate check I just got from the car insurance company into the Emergency Fund. Oh, I know it can wait until Monday, I just like to get those things in and earning interest as soon as possible. And I like seeing my EF amount go up. It's sort of like seeing credit card debt go down or a mortgage go down, but since I don't have that anymore, I just have the EF to watch go up. Not that I'm complaining about that, mind you, just, oh, I don't even know. There really isn't a point to this entry other than I need to open the mail earlier in the day when I can still do something about it.

I swear I am an organized person most of the time. I think. Right now I'm so out of it I could be deluding myself. It has been a very tiring day. And I'm cranky. And I'm tired of sick children. And I could really use a maid and a cook and a farm hand this week. I think I'm coming down with something. I guess six weeks is all I get to be free of illness this year. *sighs* Sorry to be such a grump.

    I hear you. Some days it seems like things just aren't going your way! We have had a rough month and a half, and am eager for things to get somewhat back to normal. Hope you all stay healthy and you get all the dentist stuff taken care of!

    I understand when you have your own dentist (or even other medical services) that you want to stay with because you know that they are good and will do the best thing for you, it's a pity insurance can't see that too.

    What will your new goal be for the EF once you reach your current goal?

    And this happened to me three times this week: I received a payment from a client but not in my usual self addressed stamped envelope so I didn't open it right away.

    Nor did I catch the check the bank returned to me because "it didn't have your name on it just the business" never mind the business has my name in it (and it was on the check), they have accepted checks addressed the same way for ten years AND I put it through the ATM with my card!
