Everyday stuff...

Mom made it home after a bit of an overnight delay in Chicago...gotta love the joys of air travel!

My saga with Lab One and the insurance company continues...Let's just say I was a little less than pleased when I got a call from a collection agency on Tuesday. The poor girl at Lab One got an earful...after faxing the info they needed twice and sending it once and being notified back in May that it had been received, I told her I wasn't really sure what else I could do. As she assured me she did not have the information, she leafed through my file and what do you know?!?! She found it! Gee, I'm utterly shocked! You had it there the whole time but couldn't manage to file a new claim or keep me out of collections - thanks for that. O.K. enough of my ranting, I suppose, because in the end she and her supervisor did agree to call of the collection agency and write off the balance of the bill since it was their mistake. We'll see if that all comes to pass, but I would be thrilled to have them out of my life after a year of going round and round about this charge!

Aaron is busy desperately trying to create a lawn out of a tangled mess of weeds in the backyard. It will be kind of nice when fall really rolls in and it just all up and dies for the winter so he can get a break!

I am so excited that all of the TV shows are starting their new seasons. My DVR is working overtime and it is great to have some mind numbing programming to enjoy! I can't even say what show I am enjoying most at the moment - I'm just kind of like a kid in a candy store!

Oh Debi, I feel your pain! Insurance companies can be such a pain in the you-know-what! Why is it they have so many problems just getting things done? I just don't get it. Hope everything works out soon.

I'm with you on the fall TV too. My DVR may just go into shock soon. I've been thinking about doing a post on the shows I like, but haven't decided if I really want the world to know about my obsession! LOL.

Have a wonderful day!

I can't believe I just called you Debi!!! For some reason, every time I read yours and her blogs, I get them mixed up. Maybe because you two are friends that I've made that connection. I think it all the time and then remind myself which blog I'm reading. But now I've messed up for real! Sorry!!!

We've had to deal with insurance and Lab One before also. Pain in the patoot.

We're excited about a lot of the new shows too. I'm just glad there's finally something good on TV, after a long summer of nothing to watch!

Debi said...

So what shows are you watching? I've been so out of touch with TV lately that I don't have a clue what new shows are out this season. So far all we've seen of the new season are House and Criminal Minds. Anything to recommend?

I sincerely hope this is the end of this insurance nightmare!!!

Oh Man! What an ordeal! That kinda stuff really ticks me off. I sure hope they make that call and get it taken care of. Don't hold your breath, though!

How's the lawn coming? Though our basement is looking good, the yard is another story. This house was on the market for almost two years before we bought it, and I think it's been at least that long since anyone did any weeding around here.
I started working on it yesterday, but there is sooooo much to do! UGH.
I hope your hubby beats the weeds soon!
