New Thoughts to Ponder

Saturday, December 15, 2012

I was absolutely exhausted today. I managed to pull myself out of the bed and go to the dentist. Good thing I did. I now have 8 cavities instead of the 4 they found in December. I had to cancel the last three appts with my dentist because I could not get the child care help that I needed and they would not let me bring him with me. Then my son was hospitalized and I missed a day of appt. I found out that not only would I owe a deposit the next time I went to an appt but they charged me $50 just to pull an xray file so I could see another dentist about some cosmetic work I had pre-paid for earlier in the year with another dentist. Bunch of A--holes!!

So I went to this new dentist today and my cavities have doubled. Poor eating habits of course. It's expensive to be overweight all around. So I'm going to be paying about $400 out of pocket for this work but LUCKILY and yes I do mean luckily, I have an FSA which will take care of it all! Hope we won't have anymore expensive medical visitis next year or we're screwed. But so far its covered.

I got bad news that my job probably won't work out. My scores aren't high enough. Just plain sucks. I'm not sure if I'm helping or hurting on the account of my husband. Since he watches Joey when he gets home, he's neglected the budget and neglected to fill out and mail the bills. I tried talking to him tonight about it. I know he likes the extra money but I honestly think he'd rather me just cook, watch Joey and that's it. That don't pay the collections bills though!

Bah! What a mess! We can't win for losing all the time. And my last few less than peachy blogs have been nothing but the honest junk we've been through lately. Some good. I liked having the extra money for the short time that I had it. I will still have work through the end of January but after January I will be unemployed again.

It would be nice to work a few hours per week. Maybe 20 is too many but nothing is coming up for me at the moment so I don't know what I'm going to do yet.

I wish I were good at crafting or something. Alas no I'm not. I'm not really sure what I'm good at, other than caring for my son and he's behind in alot of things most kids his age are already doing so I guess I can take credit for messing up in that department too.

Well tonight, I'm just glad I have my baby here to hug his neck. I can't imagine what those parents are going through, losing their precious babies in CT.

If I can figure out how to load my videos of him here, I will. I'd love to show him off. He's a ham and a cute one too.

Well, I know there will be goods and bads to not having this job but I want to do something that pays a little. I just wish I knew what I could to. If I did I would not be pulling my hair out trying to figure that out over the last three years.

Maybe I'll figure something out eventually. Headed out this weekend to do some Christmas shopping for the children in our family. Tonight we looked at Christmas lights. We like the fun and free stuff.

Have a great weekend all.

    I hate dentists and have found that they always find a way to overcharge. If you have insurance they just overcharge.

    I'm sorry about the job. Maybe something will come along that is easier for you to do or at least pays enough money so you could afford good child care while you work.

    It can seem bleak sometimes. I'm sure your mothering is not the cause of your son's development delays. Maybe you can just stay home and care for him and be responsible for paying the bills while your husband works. You could try it for a while. Have you ever thought about doing temp work? Another job you could do that is flexible and not necessarily long hours is substitute teaching. If you are not working, you could focus on your health and fitness goals. I have decided that while I'm not working, after being a mother and wife, my most important priority is working my weightloss plan. I'm far from perfect at it, but I work it every day. I am in deep denial about my teetha and my kids'. I might get them checked out in the next week or two while they are out of school. I'm going to investigate that at-home thing you and I talked about before. Is there a reason you aren't doing it?
