Firstly, thank you all for the comments last week. The advice was much appreciated! Y’all are some quality folks, I tell you what! Secondly, I am so gosh durn happy that we made it through the horrid month that was January, I’d totes be willing to continue this broken arm thing for another 6 months or so! That just happened to be the biggest lie I’ve ever told in my entire blog existence! next time let’s switch it up and go for a broken eyelash… much better, CoverGirl! Bring on February! And if the groundhog could be right this year, I’d really appreciate an early spring… please and thank you!
Countdown to cast removal? FOUR DAYS!!!!!! I’m having senioritis and I’ve almost pulled the thing off myself approximately 80000 times the last few days. I could pull it off myself… I’ve gotten my hand down past the wrist point, but I will wait and give them the sawing satisfaction! After that I get a brace and physical therapy… which unfortunately does NOT mean fruity drinks and chaise lounges.
I’m pretty much mostly excited that I won’t have to duct tape a garbage sack to my arm everyday just so I can stand in the shower with my arm raised above my head to prevent waterlog! It’s the little things we’re all about up here in this joint… even if Madre found Justin Bieber duct tape for me to use. (side note: I will never live the fact that I’ve mentioned Justin Bieber too many times in my blog down! Of course I have always done it in a joking teeny bopper fashion, but now suddenly my name is synonymous with crushing on the pocket sized pint who reminds me of my nephew… NO THANK YOU!!) I could crush him with my thumb, but that’s another blog post.
In other news… insurance companies suck (sorry Madre, insurance agent extraordinaire!) I got a note from my health insurance saying they’ve released the total amount to self-pay (pocket change at $12,000). Why, you might ask? Because I somehow experienced a car accident when my wrist was broken and so the health side thinks the bill should be paid by the auto insurance side. LAWSY, you cheap wads! After many calls and arguments between both sides of the insurance spectrum, I’ve learned that in Utah there is some law where if you are touching your vehicle at any point of injury, the auto insurance is supposed to be liable for up to $3000 under the personal injury protection clause… blah, blah, blah. And since I was scraping the ice and snow off my car windows when I slipped on the ice and fell on my butt, that applies to me. I ain’t no crystal ball or anything, but I’m predicting many more phone calls to clueless insurance people in my future! They’ve given me so many conflicting answers, I could write a book… all comes down to poor training in the call centers… period! Rober J. DeBry and associates… I’ll give you a ring… we can sue my car and/or the patch of ice I slipped on.
I’m going to practice my punching maneuvers during physical therapy… watch your back Progressive and Blue Shield… I’m not afraid to break a fingernail or 4 in the process!!
QUESTION OF THE DAY: How are you all doing? Any fun stuff going down in your lives? 49ers or Ravens… or commercials?
