Hi! I hope everyone had a good weekend! We didn't do much, just hung out with friends and family, and watched football ( didn't get to see my Steelers though- BUMMMER!). The kids went back to school today, so everything is getting back to "normal". They were originally scheduled off until Weds, but with all the days they missed during the hurricanes, they have to make them up.
I have a busy, expensive day ahead! I have an appointment to see my "new" surgeon. The one I have been seeing is affiliated with the local hospital, which does not accept my insurance. So I had to find one that uses the hospital that DOES take it! This basically sucks, since that hospital is much farther away from home. About an hour's drive ( instead of the 10 - 15 minutes for the other) that my family will have to deal with. At least I've been told that I will only be there for a day or two....
And, of course, "Murphy" has reared his ugly head yet again. I was in the process of doing my weekly laundry and.. The dryer died! It couldn't wait until the bills were all paid from Christmas, it had to die now! And since, with the size of my family, going to the laundrymat is a BIG pain- I must go buy one today. I would get the thing fixed, but it IS old ( 15 years) and I can't see spending that kind of money, when it will be almost as much as a new one *sigh*.
I took a quick look to catch up with "blogland" this morning, and I see that the "troublemakers" have been up to it again. Now, while I have stayed out of the fray up until now,( since I know only what I've read) I do have to say something about a comment I read. I saw someone mention something about people in Florida using the phrase " hoof in mouth" desease. I hope they were not refering to ME. I have stayed away from the "war", because I don't feel I can comment on stuff I know nothing about. I also realize that the name "Karen" is VERY common in the DL community. That's part of the reason I go by KC. So I am NOT confused with the others.( No offense meant to the other "Karens", but I want people to know it's me- when it is ME!) I just wanted to put that out there- I try very hard to be fair, and not offend.I have enough on my plate right now without "stirring another pot". If I have a problem with someone, I will take it off-line- or e-mail privately. Some things, again JMHO, should be private. OK, I got that one off my chest. I feel better ;-)
Have a great day, I'll let you all know what happens at the Dr's when I get back.
