A Few Things Soothe the Ouch
See, I had my Measles Mumps Rubella shot back in 4th or 5th grade. That was a second time getting them, because the doctor that did the first one retired-we had no records for school. NOW, the doctor that did the second one (thirty plus years ago!) retired, so I had to get round three today.
The ouch isn't for the shot, it's for the unexpected hit to my wallet. $59.00! And that's only for part one-I have to have another one in thirty days. I am hoping the new job comes with some health insurance.
Thus far, the financial impact is $95.00. I'm not one to throw away that kind of money, so those of you wondering whether I'll be in classes this summer, you can bet on it!
In good news, I've been on a winning streak of sorts!
I recently helped a fellow blogger, Miranda, celebrate her first blogoversary a couple of weeks ago by breaking in my webcam and won this:
Isn't it cool? Thanks for having the party and for the cool shirt (it is SOOO soft).
Then, I won a Hip T at Stephanie's blog. This has been one of those things I've wanted, because long torso-ed girls have shirts in the drawers that are too short. Yay, now I can pull a few shirts out of retirement.
Then, I wrote a post on my review blog, and as soon as I published it, I saw that there were comments on the last post. Once again, I've won something that I'd wanted~ Tena at Punky Monkeys recently had a beautiful blog redesign done by Sara at Subjective Beauty. Take a look at Sara's portfolio, I'm very excited that she'll be making my home on the net pretty really soon. (And there's a new name coming with the redesign, too, but you'll have to wait to see that!)
Thanks to Miranda, Stefanie and Tena for the great prizes, to ProMom Couture, Hip T and Sara at Subjective Beauty for being generous with the blog gifts!
I'm hoping that my lucky run isn't quite done yet, because I want to win the Keurig Platinum Coffee System that Kim is giving away!
