Weird day. 😐 Spent about 45 minutes at the pharmacy, trying to get WC to actually pay for the two WC meds that I had to pick up… but nope. Not completely unexpected. There’s one more that I need to get, but I’ve banked a few days of it here at the house so I can give it a little while to sit, to see if that helps it make its way through the approval process. 🙄 It wasn’t outright refused, like the others, so maybe… who knows…
Among the things that I sent to my lawyers was an update on how the medication situation was going, along with a request for the forms that I can fill out and submit into the system, which will show that they’re not being paid for, and which will hopefully result in reimbursement. 🤷🏻♂️😒 Of course, that is, if the settlement isn’t near. I’m still leaning 50% on being able to eventually get paid back by “paying myself back” out of that check, if / when it ever comes.
If I don’t hear back from someone there by mid-week, I guess I’ll have to start calling until I reach someone. I’m not complaining about my team. They’ve been great… but COVID restrictions and then an apparent relocation of their office seems to have really slammed the brakes on my shit. 😕 I really thought we were getting close… months and months ago now.
Despite the bullshit, somehow I made myself stay in town and do some more running. 🙂🤷🏻♂️ Had to go to the bank, so I decided to go in rather than going through the drive through. Something soothing about standing in that old ass building… heh… makes me think back to when I was a kid, going there with my grandparents or my aunt, where they’d often score blankets or toasters for putting money into a CD. 😊
Went to a couple thrift stores… only because they were nearly empty. Of people, that is. I guess it was because it was very early in the afternoon, most people still at work or doing whatever… but yeah, grabbed a couple new (to me) shirts, some new bowls and a huge coffee mug – typical thrift store stuff. It was nice just being out somewhere, but also not surrounded by a bunch of people without masks.
Then in the late afternoon Cassi and Steven made it down to handle the bushes for me. He borrowed a gas powered trimmer from a friend, and then I had the electric one as a second trimmer. 😎👍🏻 (One for the bulk cutting, one for going along afterwards and applying the finesse.) We knew that there was no way they’d get done done before we lost the sun, so while all the bushes got hit – probably half of them still need the detail work done, or the harder to reach stuff snipped. 🙂🤷🏻♂️ So we included it as part of the plan, to not worry about it, and the next time they come down (probably within the next week) we’ll go out and finish it all up to where we can stand back, look at what was done, and declare it all to be good. 🌳🌳😇🌳🌳
I helped some, so I’m sure I’ll be feeling it a bit tomorrow, but I didn’t push myself to where I’m gonna be out of order for a couple days again. 🙄🤞🏻 But yeah, I was impressed that they made it around the entire house before it got dark, so I’m already happy with how things went. The upcoming finishing touches are basically just gravy. 🙂 Glad to have some muscle and finesse that could help me out with this, for sure. So now I’m feeling optimistic about doing a couple more things tomorrow that I’ve been thinking about, but we’ll see how I’m feelin’ about all that once the sun rises, eh? 😏
(Oh, and I picked up a reasonably thick blank journal while at the pharmacy. I think I may have mentioned in a previous post how I used to scribble down my dreams after waking up, and sometimes even draw some illustrations… so I’m hoping to get back into that habit. Lets the brain focus on (usually) non-shitty stuff for a little longer after sleep… heh)
