Mid-Week Musings

Whoops, another crazy week around here, and I have once again neglected my blog! Well, really this week I’ve neglected just about all social media it seems!

I have been fighting a cold-ish thing since Christmas and on Monday finally broke down and headed to the Dr. Something I had been loathe to do for several reasons, one being we have switched from a standard insurance provider to a HMO, Kaiser. I’ve heard mixed reviews about our local Kaiser, and well, I don’t always have the best of luck with Drs! But I must say, it was a wonderful experience!!! They have a kiosk to check in & pay, and when I got to the waiting area, they were waiting for me!! The Dr came into my room in less than 5 minutes, and I was out of there completely WITH a trip to the in-house pharmacy in under 40 minutes.

It was brilliant. My husband and I are now kicking ourselves for not switching last year! Oh well. Now we know. I was assigned a lovely Dr, and while I didn’t see her Monday, I did meet her. She’s willing to handle all my ongoing medical needs, no specialist or trip 45 minutes away required! And my copay is less than half. So, in the middle of our huge health insurance nightmares here in the states, I must say I’m quite pleased with our new insurance.

Anyway, I’m now the proud owner of antibiotics, and other modern medicines to heal quicker. I suppose next time I won’t wait 5 weeks. Usually I can kick it though! As I get older I find it harder, I also think my arthritis plays a factor. But as people tell me “you don’t look sick!”, and no, I don’t, I do my best to hide it.

Some outfit recaps from this week:

And I believe that’s it for now. Hope to keep up the rest of this week. I am finally starting to feel like myself again. I do consider it extremely awesome the kids didn’t catch this. My dr said I wasn’t really contagious. Other than to myself! I.E. I need to learn when to rest and stop pushing myself.

Sigh.

Until next time,

Jules
