Oh, my goodness...

Thursday, December 20, 2012

What a day! I had to call an insurance company THREE times today. Early in the month they sent us a check but the documentation with it bore no resemblance to the check. They had promised me a revised EOB (Explanation of Benefits) by now but I never got it. After three phone calls they told me it's not possible to generate an EOB that references the face amount of the check and how they got to it. I've done medical billing for eight years now and this is the first time I've EVER heard of this. Oh yes, and they also told me they don't want me calling back again! This is a major insurer who advertises frequently on TV. If I see one of their ads tonight I just might lob my remote through the screen. No, then I wouldn't be able to see my "boyfriends."

Tomorrow is the Christmas party (and still no booze). We have lunch and the gift grab, and then we get to go home. I'll be home by about 2PM, and then I don't have to think about the office until next Thursday. I so need it. I'm dozing off by 8:30 just about every evening, which is no fun.

Time for some dinner. Something hot, it's cold and windy here tonight.

    I've been going to sleep early, too. Maybe it's the early darkness or the cold.

Enjoy your days off!

    I hope you enjoyed the Christmas party and got home early enough to get yourself settled in for the weekend ... enjoy your time off and REST and RELAX!!!!! It's been really windy and cold here too, it started last night when I thought the sliding glass door windows were going to blow out. I have never heard them rattle the way they rattled last night.

    Holy unexplained EOB, Batman! That's ridiculous that they can't produce an EOB to match the amt. for the check cut!!! Not understandable to me either!

Well, here's to YOU having a good hoilday and know you're thought of. HUGS and be of good cheer.

    Happy to hear you will get some time off and not have to worry about anything else until Thursday. I have my mother here this year so I know that she will take over cooking, so YAY for her! And YAY for me to get another opportunity to cook with her. We love bake-offs! And my father and Di LOVE to judge, but they never made a decision!

I did make a funfetti cake last night with strawberry icing as they had to load up my deceased uncle's belongings as his place has already sold. Not one of his children helped load anything and basically just took a few boxes of things they wanted and left my parents to do the heavy work. He has 3 daugters and 2 are married - why aren't they doing it? Because my father was his uncle's best friend and my father would do anything for him. So now we have 2 LARGE enclosed trailers to unload, 2 trucks and an open trailer as well. CRAZY!

So we will be busy these next few days!

    It's cold and windy here, too. A good night for soup or chili!

I hope you have a lovely vacation away from hades. I wish you a beautiful, peaceful holiday, especially if you get to spend some time with your *men*!
