No Question About It

Picture a mom holding a dental bill in one hand and a piece of laminate flooring in the other, weighing her options. 

What should she do?


Not really a difficult decision.  Not a question at all! 

My kid reminded me last night that she “can really feel the teeth back there”.  Well, there ya go!   I made an appointment today and she is getting X-rays and an exam this month.  We will probably book the appointment for the actual surgery next month. 

The flooring was a wonderful thought!  I have wonderful thoughts.  Winking smile  Until I come to my senses or remember the REAL priorities in my life.

I looked online at my FSA account to see how much I actually have in there to cover medical expenses this year.  I did not plan well this year and there is not enough to cover my portion of the cost of the wisdom teeth which is close to $700.00! I currently have under $500.00 in that account and I know for a fact that I’ll have more medical/dental expenses than just dental.  Hello Prescriptions! 

Top that off with the fact that my kid wants to golf nine holes a couple of times a week at a cost of $15.00.  I told her we could probably do it at least once a week, its great practice, but no more than that on a regular basis.  Again, priorities.  I do consider her golf a priority.

So for now, I am going to get some products by Bissell to clean the carpeted area that is the worst and figure out what to do with the sofa until I can get a new one.  Its such a weird shape, I don’t know if a cover is possible; that is an option if I can find one.

Oh… my area Big Lots is going out of business!  Can you believe the timing?  Maybe I should go and see if they have something super cheap at the clearance!  Like super cheap!  Super Duper Cheap!

Are you fickle like me when it comes to spending $$ and then  realization that it,s not a good idea?

At least I come to my senses right? 

Have a great day!



(And can you actually believed I created that sad hand image for this post?)  Winking smile

  1. Oh, when your teeth hurt its so miserable. Do you yard sales, estate or moving sales where you live? Maybe you could find a new to you sofa . being in the HOA you might get inside scoop someone that’s remodeling and they might have something you could use.
    You are very creative, you will find a way to fix this.
