bball   I am having a bad insurance day. And by that I mean I would like to rip somebody’s head off at one of these companies. What exactly is the point of having insurance when they cover nothing?? Because the law says so? Oooh, I am super scared now. The law should then also ensure that these insurance companies cover needed procedures as well. I am tired of hearing things were a “preexisting condition” or some other crap they made up. My daughter fell down at basketball practice and knocked her front teeth out of place. Blood all over and she was in a lot of pain. Silly me, I took her to the dentist who put them back where they belonged. Took about 45 minutes. But, since it was on a Saturday it suddenly was not medically necessary. When a person’s teeth are out of place, I DO think it is necessary to fix that, Saturday or not. My daughter is “covered” by two different insurance companies yet neither of them will pay a dime. Now my daughter can never go to the dentist until I figure out how I can get this bill paid. Guess I have to roll her in bubble wrap or something…

Candy vs. Teeth

Standard

candy   Have you noticed that the stores already have Easter candy out?? I don’t even know when Easter is this year but I do know that I love Easter candy so I am ok with it. I get through the year on holiday candy. You know, all the good stuff. In January we are still munching on candy canes and chocolate treats from Christmas. Then, we get to move on to conversation hearts. Next, it is off to Easter and those scrumptious Cadbury Eggs. The summer does bring on a bit of a dry spell. But, we can power our way through with popsicles and drumsticks. We move on to candy corn and then back to the Christmas treats. It is now becoming clear why I gain 5 pounds each year (alright, 10) and have nothing to wear for the holidays. But, I am pleasantly plump. Ok, just plump. This year however I have discovered why they can get that holiday candy out so early and so quickly. IT IS THE SAME CANDY FROM LAST YEAR! Or maybe even a year or two before. It is brick hard and I am busting my darn teeth on this crap. Isn’t my potential diabetes enough of a risk? Now I have to take the chance of losing a tooth just to enjoy a sugary treat. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take that chance. But, it would be nicer if retailers could just get us some fresh candy!! Or, charge me the price the candy was three years ago when it was new. If I lose a tooth, I will just shove a white chiclet in there or something…
