This week's CSA, an oldie but a goodie supper, medical stuff
We are officially in the new "year" for our medical insurance. All costs (except well women's care, annual physicals) are owed by us until we hit the high deductible of $4000. Today, we started towards that goal, as DS went to a specialist, then to his MD for his staples to be removed. This Sat, another specialist, a test and in the near future, DS will have another test for specialist number 1. Tomorrow, I start my OT on my hand. Soon, DD will start PT on her ankle, and I will join her for PT as well, for my Archilles tendon. Outpatient rehab is a pricey undertaking, so I anticipate that we'll hit the deductible by Nov 1. Toss in some maintenance meds (we ordered as much as we could ahead), and that is a reasonable target date. Meanwhile, I have an email into my union rep, the monies promised by our employer into our HSA for Sept 1 have yet to be deposited. Hmmm . . .they moved the date from the original July 1 as our contract year was extended (a one time deal) to Aug 31st, so I wonder what the hold up is.
Laundry is drying on clothes horses placed in the sun room, this humidity is killing me, but I refuse to use the dryer except for towels, so they won't get musty. A second batch is running now (towels), which I will place in the dryer come morning.
Supper ingredients for tomorrow are layed out (pantry supplies), my outfit is set as well. Just less to think about come 5 a.m.
