Merry Xmas eve!

For my first Xmas present this year I received and 11 thousand dollars bill for the operating room bill only for the boys arm. I can't wait to see what the ER bill is going to be. This is just going to be the best Xmas EVER!

Speaking of Xmas. The oldest boy texted the hubby last night asking if he could come and stay the night and spend Xmas with us. We figured he would do his usual dissappearing act and show up after to get his stuff. So we didn't get him anything. Just figured we would give him a 50 when we saw him, but since there has been a change in plans, the hubby actually went out on Xmas eve so he would have something to open. It's funny because the hubby HATES any kind of crowd and this is this worst possible time to go. Hehehe!

Well off the the family party tonight, and then the present fest begins in the morning!

Merry Xmas all, I hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Collaboration

The banks and health insurance companies should merge into one big conglomerate to bend over the American people and literally gang rape us into submission by paying more and getting even less then we are now. After this mornings realization of I just met my deductible for the boys arm, only for the insurance companies to pay 80% while I'm stuck paying the other 20. This sounds fine in reality, but when you think about it, in less then 2 weeks it becomes 2012, thus reverting my deductible back to ZERO. With plenty of "specialist" visits that are costing me double along with having to pay in full for X-rays now because my deductible of $1500.00 that I just met is going back to ZERO. So merry fucking Xmas to me, and I am now taking it up the ass by Humana! I am just short of canceling the insurance on the kids and putting the $300.00 a month or sorry it's $400.00 now, into a savings account for medical expenses. I would probably get off way cheaper and be able to pay for it in cash, since most places will discount the bill by 20% if you pay it all right then. Just think, $400.00 times 12 is $4800.00 a year and we usually have 1 maybe 2 doctor visits a year. So it seems pretty worth it to me not to even have it at this point.

Well my Xmas shopping is pretty much done. I thought I'd blow the rest of my money on presents for the kids considering I'll be living in a box come next month. Oh well. At this point I give up! I'm defeated. Just when I thought things were getting back on track. Wham! So I'm guessing 2012 isn't going to be my year!

Day 2

So I have been home for 3 days now.  The boy has been doing pretty well I must say.  He even tried eating spaghetti left handed last night.  It didn't work out to well, but he tried.  It was a little rougher last night sleeping because he was trying to turn over most of the night.  Which wakes me up because his arm needs to be elevated, so 5 times I had to turn him back over.  Good thing I took today off.  This shitty cold I have got seems to be developing a new symptom.  I now have a cough.  The hubby went to work today, hey it's better then nothing at least.  I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that something comes up soon for that company.  All and all he's been really lucky so far.

Last night our neighbors stopped by and dropped off candy to us.  It was really nice, but I was a little embarrassed because I was in my sweats, no makeup and my hair in a half assed pony tail.  She looked at me and said are you OK?   HA, yeah, I must have looked hideous.  Oh well!  So were going to try a bath today.  Bag up the arm and get him cleaned up.  I brushed and probably will be brushing his teeth for the next six weeks, but that's OK because at least I know they will be brushed good for a while.  I swear, last night I sneezed and I think I blew out my eardrum if that's even possible.  All I know is I hard a pop and if freaking hurt.  It's still a little sore this morning.  Weird.  Well enough of my boring ramblings.

Santa has Shit Down My Chimney this Year!

I really must have made the naughty list this year.  It all Started with the nasty hangover last Saturday.  The emergency dental visit for the hubby.  God only knows what that bill is going to be.  The hangover has turned into a nasty head cold on Sunday, so I spent the entire day sick on the couch.  Monday wasn't going great either.  I had to drag my ass out of bed to go to work because menopausal minion took a couple days off at the worst fucking time of year.  I guess I looked pretty shitty because the boss lady told me to go home an hour after I got there.  I was like oh thank god cause I feel like CRAP!  I got home crawled into bed and watched some TV and fell asleep.  After about an hour I started drooling because I cant breath out of my nose and woke myself up.  My phone was on vibrate so I picked it up to see if anyone had called and it rang in my hand.  It was the school.  I thought oh crap, the boy has got my cold.  The girl was already home sick at grandmas.  I only wish that was the call I had gotten.  I said hello.  The lady says Hi I'm the nurse, your son fell off the slide and I think his arm is broken so you need to come get him and take him to the ER.  UM, OK.  At this point I wasn't sure what to do, I think I was in shock from the call.  I called the hubby, then my mom, while on my way to get him.  I walked in the nurses office and looked and the big dip in his forearm and said yep that's broke.  The funny thing is, is the nurse said he just walked in, not crying and said his arm hurt cause he fell off the slide.  Tough kid I have.  So off to the ER we went.  I picked up my aunt to help me with him.  We get to the ER and of course it's hurry up and wait.  They gave him an IV (which he didn't cry with that either)  Gave him some pain meds, and he felt so much better to wait for the next 6 hours for the bone doctor to get out of surgery to set his arm.  At least it was a clean break, the sucker just snapped right in half, so he didn't need any surgery.  However, they did take him to the operating room to use this contraption to straighten his bone.  It was better to knock him out anyways.  We finally, after 8 hours in the hospital got to go home.  We picked him up some McDonald's because the poor kid had nothing but breakfast yesterday.  He ate, we gave him his drugs and he slept with me because he has a loft bed and wont be able to get up there for the next 6 weeks.  We just kicked the hubby to the spare room.  I am so glad he is OK, but man this couldn't have happened at the worst time.  Aside from the emergency dental bill I'm waiting on, the hubby is out of work at the moment, it's Xmas time, and this little ER visit will probably end up costing me $2000.00 or more I don't have.  Just when I think I'm starting to get ahead a bit, the rain cloud lets loose.  I guess the most important thing is that the boy is OK and I will just deal with everything else as it comes.

And so it begins!

Right at this very moment on Saturday night at 5:16 pm I am sitting in a dental office waiting for the hubby to basically cost me my rent money in emergency dental work, because he had a tooth ache and couldn't wait till Monday. Aside from the fact that I am also majorly fucking hung over. My Xmas party for the office was yesterday and a couple friends and the hubby usually go out afterwards. Well 4 bars and way to many beers later here I am. So far all I've eaten all day is a leftover extreme sausage sandwich from jack in the box that we got before heading home in the wee hours of this morning. Ive also had about 4 hours of sleep due to the hubby moaning and groaning over his tooth this morning. I said can you go be in pain on the couch? I need some fucking sleep. I did manage to get a nap in though. So I'm sitting hear starving in a plastic uncomfortable chair depleting my checking account by the minute. This sucks.

Work has been a nightmare this last week. It's Xmas and that means I get to deliver and mail out 1000 boxes of sees candy and wine boxes I have to put together for clients every fucking year and get it all delivered by Xmas. Considering I'm one person short this year and menopausal minion has taken the next couple days off, I'm fucked this week. I'm canceling Xmas this year. Why can't things just go smoothly for once this time of year. We were suppose to visit his dad next weekend but dickhead step fucko cleaned out the savings needing 2 fucking cars. I also blame the hubby for this. He basically has no work for the next couple weeks, so as of right now bah fucking humbug!

Black Friday

Yes, I went.  Yes, it sucked.  Yes, I got what I went for and nothing else.  I was at Walmart by 8:30 standing in line in the automotive section waiting for a TV.  My BFF, was standing in another line (for me) in the paint section for another TV.  My mom was guarding the Portable DVD player pallet for me.  Because I cant be in 3 places at once you know.  So 4 1/2 hours in the automotive section I finally got my TV, met up with everyone else to get my other shit, and waited in line for another 45 minutes to check out.  I spent most of my bonus and walked out of there with 3 things.  I was a little disappointed, but I was really to tired to give a shit too.  I think I'm staying home next year.  I did manage to do a quarter of my Xmas shopping on line.  It's totally worth paying the shipping to avoid the crowds.

My husband went all Clark W. Griswold on the Xmas lights this year.  What started out as just putting some lights up, ended up being 5 trips to Lowe's and I'm sure a huge power bill.  I had 3 rounds of pictures because everyday I came home there was something else on the house lit up.  It was funny.

Tonight my Daughter is singing at the state capitol building for the Xmas tree lighting ceremony.  Keep in mind I have lived here 25 years and not once have ever thought about going to it.  But once again a kid of mine sucks me into doing this shit.  Not to mention it's fucking FREEZING out.  Hopefully it wont take long, but on the upside I'm making my hubby suffer through it with me....hehehe!

Tomorrow more freezing of the asses off to go cut down a Xmas tree.  Good thing I bought those DVD players.  The kids and I will be waiting in the truck while lumber jack hubby preforms some primitive ritual to make him feel like more of a man.  But it's all in good fun I guess.  Have a warm weekend cause I know I ain't!
