My Picture for Today Says It All......

I just hate days that involve having to deal with people that don't give a crap about you, or care if they help you or not. About a month ago, I got into a small fender/bender with some a**hole in a big pickup truck. It put a nice little dent in the front side of my car. I called the guy's insurance company, got a claim number and a phone number/extension for my "adjustor". I called her every single day for a month and left a message on her voice-mail. I also emailed her twice and never got a reply, nor a returned phone call, ever! Anyway, I finally had to get ugly with them and refused to be transferred to another voicemail, so I got an appointment for today to have my car looked at. I got an estimate and then was told that it would be sent to my "adjustor" and she would be in contact with me. Which actually means "round 2 of bull****".

Then I went to the bank, then to the post office and then to get gas and the pump thing could not read my card. It looked like someone had tried to cram a screwdriver in there, or something. Anyway, I had to go in and then they told me that I could not "fillup" unless I moved to another pump and tried my card again outside. One glance out the door indicated that there were cars @ all the pumps, so I would have had to wait. I just got $30 worth and then the receipt machine was broke, so I couln't get a receipt. Then I was off to the "Salvation Army" to drop off a car full {literally} of cloths, craft stuff, pillows, extra office supplies, etc. So, that was a good stop. Then it was on to "Sam's" for that awesome Fuze Tea that I'm addicted to, plus some great Yoga Pants that I couldn't resist, broccoli, humus, chicken and of course, a bottle of Yellowtail Shiraz {my fav}, so that was a good stop.

So, I get home and have a message from "Aetna RX Home Delivery" that they can't refill my prescription yet for my inhaler that I've been using for a gazillion years. So, I have to call them. The prescription has been screwed up for months, anyway. You see, I get 3 months' supply at a time, which would normally be 3 inhalers. For some reason, the Pharmacist at Aetna decided to over-ride my Doctor's prescription and decided that 2 inhalers should last me 3 months. Sometimes 2 inhalers may last me 3 months, sometimes not. When I got my prescription last week, I only had 2 inhalers in the package, so I had to call my Doctor, once again, and he had to fax them another revised prescription (they claim the never got the last one). So they told me today that the "supervisor" at Aetna would have to rewrite the order so that I can get an additional inhaler this time, since it was a "revised" prescription. Otherwise, I could not get another refill until the end of June and then I would get 3 inhalers from now on. I was almost on the verge of tears with these people. I've gone round and round with them. Not to mention that I usually get disconnected at least once when I call them. "Life Is Just So Daily"!!!!!

Ok, I'm glad I got all that crap off my chest. I feel much better now. I do have to share this awesome little turtle that my Sister gave me for my birthday. It was made by "Glass Monkey Studios, LLC" here in Baton Rouge, LA:
Isn't he just the cuteset little fellow you ever saw! My Mom, Sister and I went to a local Festival here in Baton Rouge yesterday. I was really great. We had a good time. I bought several glass pendants from these same guys and I'll be making some great necklaces with them. Here's a couple that I made last night:

Aren't they awesome! I love them all. I hope they sell fast, or I'll be keeping them for myself and I don't need to do that. Anyway, I just had to share my cute little purse with you, too. It's made from a coconut and has an awesome Lizard painted on it. It's perfect to use for shopping trips, festivals, etc., where you don't want to carry a big purse around. Plus, with a good swing, you could use it for a weapon, if needed ;0)

And so my peeps, thanks for helping me cheer up. I always feel way better when I can just let everything out. Thanks for listening. Hope you are having a great Monday.

xxoo & peace ~ Kathy
