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. 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!
