Sunday - Sunday - Sunday...

Where did the weekend go? It went much too fast, that is for sure.

Yesterday was spent taking part in the town's city-wide garage sale. I put some stuff in Amy's neighbor's sale because Amy and I decided we (she mostly) didn't want to do one by ourselves. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't but it worked out OK. The neighbor was going to hold hers Friday and Saturday, which sounded better than just having it on Saturday. After I committed to it, I found out that "Friday" was only from 3 until 7 and Saturday was only from 8 until noon. That's really not two days, so that was a bummer. But, she did do most of the hard work and was very organized in how she ran it.

I gave a lot of people some really good deals just to get rid of stuff and then I donated four huge boxes of stuff to Am-Vets. Since I've down-sized so much I don't think I'll ever have enough stuff to have another garage sale on my own.

Ron wasn't feeling very good this morning so we skipped church. We had a really big thunderstorm last night and it rained for quite a while this morning. We really needed the rain. Poor Isaiah though... Amy and Rex bought him a swimming pool last night and he had big plans to play in it today. I don't know if it's going to get warm enough or clear up enough for him to go swimming today. (Postscript... Amy posted pictures on Facebook of Isaiah getting into the pool. You can tell he's freezing but still having a good time.)

I want to get into my play room and work on some things but I'm just not into it right now. Actually, I'm not into too much right now. I just  don't have any drive or ambition these days. I'm really disappointed in the insurance company's decision to deny payment for the device. I sent them a really long, explanatory email this morning so maybe that will fall into the hands of someone who can make a decision in my favor. Without that, the surgery just won't go forward as planned. That totally sucks. I was really looking forward to being able to function in a somewhat normal fashion.

I had a really bad week all around and each piece of news I received built on the previous piece of news until I just kind of spaced out. I am really ticked. Oh well... Got to get my positivity flowing again. I haven't been too successful at it this past week. Today starts a new and (hopefully) improved week.

I hope you all have a great week. I'll try to be in a more upbeat mood the next time I post.

Can your Dr. write to the insurance company and explain why this is more than just a hearing aid? Perhaps with something from them you'd stand a chance for an exception. It's worth asking. I'm sending you some extra cheer with your hugs today. Hope you're feeling better soon. (((((HUGS))))

@Barb and Skippy - got an appointment with the doc this coming thursday. hopefully, he'll sit still long enough to help me out.

Hi Teresa

Judging by what you said to Barb & Skippy your doctor is one of those who trys to get in and out in a flash and hardly lets you get a word in.....
I do hope he can do something for you I really don't get why your insurance company will not cover the cost it is just so wrong.

I am on a Disabilty Pension and have hearing aids mine cost $4000 but the government paid for them so they didn't cost me anything........
you shouldn't have to pay it is just so wrong and makes me so mad...

Cheer up, Stay positive and when that doesn't work, feel free to scream into your pillow and pound your fists into the mattress - it might help just a little itty bit. I'm having a frustrating Monday - this mortage is going to come down to the wire and by then I may be bald, with no pillow or mattress left!

I'm sorry for all that you are going through. It sounds like you are getting good advice here - ask the doctor to write a letter, scream into your pillow, etc. I'm thinking of you!

Teresa, I am so glad Isaiah got to use the pool even if he was freezing. hopefully Ron is feeling better and your letter will reach someone worthwhile and willing to help you :D
