While my life is just about as good as any girl could ask for I did find a super good upside yesterday.
I made a visit to my dentist to see about getting a broken filling/tooth repaired.
Downside: I don't have dental insurance. When my dentist looked at the tooth and our prior treatment plan, this tooth was scheduled for a crown. Cha ching: $1,295. I didn't have time to start the crown process yesterday so I told him I would reschedule and we'll do it despite the horrible price tag.
Upside: When I went to the receptionist to pay for my visit and reschedule, she told me about a dental insurance plan that I could sign up for online and said if I went home and did that, she would wait to charge me for my visit. My bill for yesterday went from $118 to $49. My annual cost for the insurance is $139, which includes my hubby. My crown cost will be reduced to $595. This made my day! In running my errands yesterday, I stopped and bought some fancy cookies and dropped them off for the dental receptionist to share. It was so much fun to see those front desk people smile! They have no idea how happy I am that they helped me out with the insurance info.
The other upside to my day was a late day trip out to the McNary Wildlife Refuge. I doubted we'd get to see anything so late in the day but was I surprised when two sea otters swam past the viewing shack. I had no idea otters lived in this area. I didn't get a good pic of them as they were fast but we watched them from afar and I got some nice surprise photos of other things. I'll post those up in another post.
Did you have any upsides this week?
