Day 33 - A long 2 days

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

I had a pretty good reason for not blogging last night. I was collecting all my trash and managed to cut my finger really badly - it bled for about 45 minutes until I managed to get a steri-strip and 2 bandaids on it. Yech! And it's my right index finger - important for mousing and keyboarding.

The washer - I did a hand wash last night - socks & undies - which takes the desperateness out of not having a functional washer. Got a recommendation for a repair person who it turns out no longer services my neighborhood because the guy who did that moved to Virginia. Came home last night and got a list of 4 service repair places from a group I use that is sort of like Consumer Reports for the Philadelphia area. Was planning to call them today. Had PT this morning [more on that later]. My PT said that if it was the bearing I'd probably need to replace the whole housing which would cost more than a new washer. Yikes! So I thought I'd break down and buy a new one. Got to work and someone told me they had a great service repair person. So I flip-flopped again and got their number. I had finally measured the washer this morning and went out to the website to see if the washer I was interested in would fit. Yes AND they are having a 10% sale on it through tomorrow. Oy! Then the repair person got back to me. They can't look at it until next week. So that did it. I am buying a new washer tomorrow. While I am at it, I'm getting a chest freezer. Who me? Overly influenced by others?

Back to the PT part of the story. There was a mixup and forms that I was supposed to fill out were not filled out until 4 weeks into PT. So the insurance company decided they would cover the PT but only from when the forms were filled out - despite the fact that 1) I had a diagnosis from my doctor and a prescription for PT and 2) I am going to an in-network PT place. I see many phone calls in my future and voicemail hell.

I think I'll stop there. Haven't gotten enough slip the last 3 nights. Going to bed.

Tomorrow is another day.

    Glad you are getting the new washer. These days it doesn't usually pay to fix them, sadly. Especially when you aren't sure how old they are. I'd LOVE a chest freezer, but since I have 2 side by sides, my DH would never go for it. (Old fridge in garage wih soda and extra stuff...)

    Hope your finger heals quickly. I tried something new when I hurt my hands on the parking lot fall.. spray on bandage. It burned like mad, but protected me really well from dirt & such. Might be a good idea even with a bandage if it's hard to keep one in place.
