First the good:
The newest grandchild is reported to be a girl!
I am slowly, but surely, getting our two computers to connect and share. It is so hard to teach a new Dell old tricks. Today, I managed to hook up the scanner again to the old computer. Worked fine, and no major glitches. Yay, for once.
Now the Bad:
The summer seems to be flying by and I didn't even plant any flowers this year. I don't think I have ever done that. We had a very, very cool spring, and all the crops and flowers are late. Will we be having a longer summer then, or will the rains arrive in September like they are suppose to do?
I am nervous/happy that my husband is going to retire on August 1st. But I worry about money. Yeah, who doesn't?
The Screwed Up:
We always pay our dentist bills on time and usually in full when we get them. We have a new dentist and they are just getting their practice under control in the office dept. Today, we got a bill for my husband's new crown. The last time we were in there for our cleanings I asked if our previous bill had been submitted to insurance. It had been re-submitted. Fine, ok....
We have been waiting for them to get their act together (the doctors didn't know they had to alert the insurance companies when they had a physical change of address for the practice. So, they showed up as not preferred providers for us, leaving us with the whole bill.) and for them to send us a statement for a couple months now. Today, we finally got a statement and what do I see on it but interest charges! What?! They have been screwing up in submitting claims and I am suppose to pay them extra money because the bill has been languishing in their files for months while they wait for the insurance company to pay up? How can I know what to pay if they don't send me a bill?
I really hate having to call tomorrow and hashing this out, but they are not going to penalize me for their ineptitude! This is what happens when dentists retire and sell their practice...bleah!
