September Round Up!

It is September Round up time over at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! I used the adorable Happy Harvest stamp set. I colored this cute scarecrow in with my Copics and cut him out. The paper is SU! and Papertrey Ink. I cut 2 ovals out with my Nestibilities. I curved the sentiment to fit at the top of the oval. I love these felt leaves from Making Memories! I just added a button and twine to finish it off.

I'm gonna share a wee bit of aggravation with you. I have been putting off going to a dermatologist for a weird mole on my face. It has changed and bled, and I think I need to have it checked for skin cancer. So anyway, I call my insurance company to get an in network provider.....I call both numbers they gave me, and neither one takes my insurance! I call the insurance company back and tell them about this. They proceed to give me 2 more names. To make a long story short, I finally get a hold of a dermatologist. I made it a point to tell her the trouble I had getting someone to take my insurance....she puts me on hold for about 10 minutes, comes back and says, "Sure we take your insurance!" Now I am excited right? Even more exciting that that is they can get me in at 5:15PM. Great! I rush to get dinner ready, take part of Cort's dinner with (I'll feed her at the doc's office if need be) drive 35 minutes away, fill out all of the paperwork.......only to be told .....they don't take my insurance! ARE YOU FREAKING SERIOUS!? I drove all that way for NOTHING? I was sooooo mad!! On top of that my stinking gas light was on! UGH! .............ok, I just needed to vent.....thanks for listening.

Happy Tuesday!

I think you need to change your insurance. It's a bit rough if no one seems to except it and very annoying especially when you had to drive all that way for a wasted journey. Hope you manage to get to see someone soon and that it's nothing serious.

On the plus side, love your card. The little scarecrow is fab and I love the autumn colours. Those felt leaves are great too.

Oh Michelle, I can totally relate! I tried to find a provider in our small town that takes our insurance and there wasn't a single one! We have to drive 10 miles to Crystal Lake. Our dentist stopped taking it as well, so we had to switch to a new one.

I hope that it isn't what you think it is, but the sooner you get it checked out the better. I guess having crappy insurance is better then having nothing at all!

Adorable card...and GREAT coloring!

Vent away...
We just dropped Comcast (last week) & Verizon (June 19th). We tried each to save money…not worth it. They both have horrific customer service. Verizon owes us a small refund from cancelling, but is billing us for $150. We called twice (after each $150 bill) and Verizon assures us we show a zero balance and our refund will be coming. Last week Verizon sent the $150 bill again and threatened to involve a collection agency. We had to involve the VCC re: $150 bill AND to get our refund from Verizon that they have owed us for over 3 months. Comcast could not boost their signal enough to get a decent picture and we signed up during a promotion to get $125 off after the first month. After several calls (and hours on hold), it never came and now Comcast denies there ever was a promotion. Yes, seriously. I got my choice…I cancelled Comcast last week and we are back with DirecTv.

And get names lady, I always name names when I cause a scene. But you are so much better than I and probably remained calm. Me...there would have been some ear muffs for the kid and harsh language. lol
Good luck woman.
