So, is anyone else thinking about Brigadoon? And I probably am in a rare mood, too…It’s been a crazy day. Mike came home from the post office this morning with the bill from Jon’s trip to the ER. Holy cow! I see why they don’t tell you what you owe while you’re there; when they send you the bill, they’re hoping you’ll have to make another trip in when you have the heart attack. If I had known they were going to use the magic golden stitches, I would have sewn him up myself. And, of course, insurance is a joke. To have something we can afford, the deductible is outrageous (more than this bill) – and, being the healthy family we are, we never hit it. Wait – we did get there one time. Except that we got a letter saying, “Oh, too bad for you. The new year just turned over.”
That’s how the day started. Fun, right? But I am very thankful that Mike and I, the boys and all our extended family are quite healthy. We’re very blessed!
Here’s a great technique I learned from my friend Diane Oliver. It’s a “faux brayer” technique, and will be one of the techniques we’ll cover on the 31st at the next class.
