I called my Dental Insurance company this morning. Delta Dental. As I discussed a few things with her, she spotted 2 errors:
- The $148 from Dr. Taylor’s office (mentioned here) should not be paid. As per an agreement between Esthetic Dental and Delta Dental, it was done within 3 months of the root planing and is considered “provider write-off”. She told me to refer the dentist to them if they have any questions.
- The Charlotte Root Canal Center indicated me as “other” instead of spouse which put me in as a child in Delta Dental’s records therefore kicking a claim. I may have a refund coming back to me then. I called the root canal place and explained.
We’ll see what happens. For now on I will call after every claim to check that it was submitted and paid properly. The insurance rep said that many people do just that. I’d like to think these weren’t “intentional errors”.
I received a call from a senator’s staff confirming our White House tour! Yay!
I ironed and then ironed some more and then even some more. When I was “done”, I remembered the 8 other shirts in the closet that needed touch-ups. Argh. I switched the iron back on and tackled them.
It’s obvious that I don’t know how to snack appropriately. By appropriately I mean with moderation. Jim and I can never “stop at one”. Inevitably, one of us will look at the other and ask “want another one?” It’s our weakness. This is why we never have snack food in the house until recently. I’ve always had that problem and I’m not real sure why I thought being on a diet would be any different. Sure I’m losing weight but are my desserts and snacks out of control? I ended the day today with 2 points but look at the snacks for the day. Two lemon iced cakes. Double fudge cake. Fudge stripe cookies. Not to mention, look at what I ate for dinner. 2 burgers. Again – I’m within points values but maybe I should be consuming higher point foods? Once all the snacks are gone in the house I won’t be replenishing them. Maybe 1 thing like pudding or ice cream pops. Having sundaes, cookies and cakes are probably dumb. What do you think? I’m losing weight. I’m within points.
PS: 100 calorie packs are funny. Basically they make a mini version of the larger thing and fill a bag with a handful. Maybe I get 6 minis but if they we full size it would have been 2-3. The Weight Watcher’s Lemon Cream cake is good but also tiny.
We’ve relocated to a new city/state again. The RV park is awesome. We confirm plans for New Orleans. Check it out here.
