Make it Sweet by Kristen Callihan
Y’all, my allergies are just out of control! I have been wearing my contacts (because glasses and a mask are not working for me) but I couldn’t even wear my contacts this week. Every morning my eyes were so swollen and goopy. My nose is stuffy. My head hurts. It’s been awful. Having to wear a mask when you need to blow your nose every 10 minutes is crappy, and having to wear a mask with glasses sucks too. I was constantly readjusting the mask to find the sweet spot that didn’t steam up my classes. So, the whole “don’t touch your face” advice from the CDC? That just isn’t happening. Oh well!
The weather was amazing this week! The mornings were cool and crisp. It was awesome. Bring on Fall (because it means we are getting close to WINTER!!!)!
My coteacher and I reworked some things this week for our classroom. It feels good to have a new plan to tackle some of the gaps we have noticed. Hopefully it helps, but even if it doesn’t, I think we have gotten comfortable enough with each other to suggest and discuss other options. Its nice!
So I finally got my medication. I was going to try and wait until the end of the month when I had more money in my HSA. However, I realized it just wasn’t a good idea. So, I used the $450 in my HSA and paid $450 cash. I’m so lucky that this was even an option for me-not many people would have been able to afford a random, unexpected $450 expense. It certainly wiped out any extra in my bank account, but it was a necessary expense. I have always had GREAT insurance and while I knew others who have struggled, this is the first time I have personally experienced a high deductible plan. It’s so awful it should be criminal. How can we have one of the best health care systems if it is only accessible to some? The plus side is with that $900 prescription I am almost half way to my deductible, so that’s good.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
