    I only do Medicare Advantage stuff - but - I do know that some commercial plans were offering the $0 annual. Like the Medicare Advantage stuff, it really matters where you get your test done and what exactly was done. Is your doctor in your network? Does anything and everything count towards your deductible?

    If your insurance carrier does not provide you a Summary of Benefits, I would call them and find out exactly why no payment was made. You have some kind of booklet, I take it? Ask the carrier to define what they mean by what is in the book. If what you got, and their definition match, you could probably ask them to reconsider. The provider could have billed it wrong - it might be the difference between a routine physical and a well woman exam.

    Edit - your plan can't tell you or your provider how to bill, so they won't tell you what codes to use if the provider DID bill it wrong.

    Icing my hand for a second night. Tomorrows workout needs my fingers to work. This sucks. Stupid ping pong table. Plus it's a really cool night so my ice pack is especially cold.

    If I cooked at someone else's house, I would never dream of leaving a dirty pot in the sink for over two days or leaving the stove top a total mess or leaving smelly food garbage in the garbage when it should go in the green bin...what is with people?? CLEAN UP YOUR ****!!

    So frustrated right now with my job, but can't really do anything about it right now. I need to make more money and I need healthcare. My work offers health care but it takes out a big chunk of your paycheck and from what I've heard it's really crappy health coverage plans. Sucks. Getting health care that is affordable outside of a job that offers health care is next to impossible when Josh and I both have pre existing conditions.

    So frustrated with some stuff at work though, but can't really go into much detail on here. I'm just reaching a point where I'm done though and really want to work somewhere else. Problem is most dog related jobs out here don't seem to pay much and I've worked myself up to shift leader at this job which means a little higher pay though it still isn't a lot. In order to get the income I'm shooting for I may have to look for a job outside of dogs and the thought of that makes me ill. Just frustrated.

    Ugh my stomach feels in a knot right now. I passed by a homeless guy on my way to get gas in my car. Afterward I went to the local CVS to return a red box. The same homeless man had made his way over to CVC and was sitting in the grass under a tree. His sign said he was hungry so I decided to get him some breakfast. As I was walking towards CVS I saw him pull out a cigarette and light it. Right then I changed my mind about getting him food and figured if he can afford cigarettes he can afford a small bite to eat. In that moment I completely judged him and I feel like a terrible person because of it. I don't know his story. I don't know his situation. For all I know someone could have given him that cigarette. I have no idea. All I know is I completely judged this man. :(

    I don't talk to my mom and haven't for awhile. I'm not sure if this upsets, irritates, or angers her, possibly all three, but every now and then my sisters and I will get an email from her. Perhaps she's trying to be apologetic, but they all always say the same thing - "I'm sorry, but I made the right decision and I'm the happiest I've ever been." If you're going to continue to tell me you were right in the way you handled things and are happy with your actions, I'm probably going to continue to not talk to you. Admit you screwed up, because you did. There are ways to pursue your happiness, and yours could not have been more wrong.

    So my neice was supposed to come this week to visit with us. We got a call on Tuesday from her mom that she had gotten into some trouble and her and my brother decided that she would not be allowed to come as punishment. I get that... makes me sad but I understand.

    Then when I was talking to my dad no Sunday he said that she was just here at Hershey park with a friend. Apparently her friends parents asked my brother is she could go away with them but claims he didn't know where they were going... How do you not know where your child is going on vacation especially if it's to the US where she would need her passport (she's 12). I don't buy that. and they came and did DC and then came to Lancaster and Hershey during the week that my dad was here visiting us.

    Now I've got this nagging voice in my head that is telling me not all is kosher and that I'm being lied to. I can't prove it and obviously I don't know this for sure but it's just weird.

    Anything that can go wrong at work today, will. It's kind of comic, but also kind of tear-your-hair-out inducing.

    Carrying on in life, feeling content and just ducky really then suddenly getting a punch-in-the-gut reminder that your heart dog is gone and you lost her in a truly unfair way and you feel like throwing up and it takes your breath away and it physically hurts your heart.

    I miss her so so so much and my coping mechanism day to day is to vaguely pretend she's just gone temporarily and when reality comes back, it doesn't trickle in like a slow leak, it slams into me like a hurricane.

    I'm lying in bed and Joey is hogging the bed to the point where I'm half hanging off the bed. Ugh. And he is a pain in the butt to move when he is asleep because he acts like he is dead.

    Spent all evening trying to figure out getting my entry forms done for two upcoming lure coursing trials. Joey has done practice runs, but this will be his first time actually lure coursing. He has to do his QC test a week from Saturday which basically tests him with another hound to make sure he courses the lure and NOT other dogs so that he can course in Open Stakes next. I'm planning to QC him a week from Saturday and then actually course him the next day. Problem is I still don't 100% understand everything on the entry form so I'm hoping I don't send it in and then find out I messed up on something. I hate feeling dumb. I have to fill out an entry form for Cricket's first rally competition and that form makes me even more cross eyed.

    I ordered 8 T-Shirts from threadless on July 4th... and they still haven't arrived. :( I payed like 60€ for them, and I want the NOWH. They are supposed to arrive between July 16th and August 1st (but no later than August 15th. -.-) THEY BETTER NOT ARRIVE ON AUGUST 15TH DAMNIT.
    Also I'm pretty sure customs is holding them hostage.
