Today at work we had another catered lunch. Every time someone who has been here 10+ years retires we have a catered lunch, and today is one of those days. He was here for 33 years and was a part of our inside sales team. We had beef on weck, cheese potatoes, pasta salad, fruit, veggies, and cake. YUM!
My wife and I are in the process of switching pediatricians since ours are horrible. I went to the same doctors growing up and never did I think they were bad. Since moving back and having my own child I have heard nothing but horror stories about that place, and have noticed that they aren’t the same. It is weird to me because, like I said, I went there my whole life with all the same doctors. The administration is terrible, they don’t answer phone calls, and worst of all they don’t seem to try in any way. It is like they are so comfortable in their jobs that they glance over things, that they once would have really taken the time to look into. If that makes any sense. In a little over two weeks Everett will be 7 months old and doesn’t have his 6 month checkup until tomorrow. this is because they called the day of and canceled his appointment. If this was reversed we would get charged for not giving them any notice, but if they do it it seems to be no big deal. Now I understand that people get sick and things happen but this isn’t the only instance of stuff like this happening and people not being on top of their game. I’m sad and mad that it has come to this because we should be able to have care here in our town. That being said we now will be going across state lines to my least favorite state, New York, and going to a doctor there. They are in our network and have rave reviews compared to here. It is about a 35 minute drive, which kind of stinks, but should be worth it for better treatment in the future. I have been filling out a couple forms here are work to fax over to have his records released.
In trying to pay some bills today I saw that my internet bill jumped $20 due to coming into the second year of my packaged plan. To me this is no good. I have decided that I’m cutting ties with the package and just going with internet only. This means that I have to return the Tivo box. This would only save me about $10 so I figure if I’m doing this I’ll do it the right way. After work I will be going to pick up my own router and modem and returning theirs as well saving another $20 a month. Side note, for me to rent that modem every month is $240 a year! the one that I’ll buy, one time, is $150. That’s it, I wont pay anything past $150, ever! I’d say it’ll pay itself off in no time. 😀 My evening will involve setting that all up and getting it working with my ISP so that there won’t be any hiccups in my home network.
That is about all for me today, I’ll see what I can do about tomorrow’s post since Everett’s appointment is in the morning. That really throws me off. bye! 😀 😀
