I’m not complaining at all! In fact I’m rejoicing in my good fortune. It is just funny how a few things out of the ordinary make you think.
Not too long ago I took the boys for their annual check up and was greeted with a “there is no copay for this visit”. I thought that was strange but new that we had made changes to our healthcare at work so I thanked her and thought how nice was that when I was expecting to pay $60 (though it would have been against my FSA)
This weekend Buddy’s asthma started acting up again, I believe due to another small cold. We couldn’t find an inhaler anywhere so I called the pharmacy to see if he had any refills available. It turned out he did AND the pharmacy had ONE more left. So we ordered it and after dinner I ran by to pick it up. Guess what? No co-pay. That really seemed weird to me I’ve always paid in the past but always ordered two at a time. I didn’t press the two issue since the pharmacy said they only had one.
This weekend Buddy needed a new string for his guitar. I finally got around to taking him to Guitar Center to get a new one with the hopes that they would help put it on. He knew his teacher would help and was not worried. When we got there she directed me over to the girl that does the string changes and tune ups. I let her go ahead and do it without even asking how much it would be and having NO IDEA what a string and change cost. Turned out it was FREE. She said she is allowed to give a customer a complimentary string change (one string only). So instead of spending the money on that Buddy got a new “cool” guitar strap and some new picks. Also Honey has decided that when she gets in school and “needs” to play an instrument she wants to play the piano, but for now she wants a ukulele.
For your listening pleasure a little bit of Buddy playing some guitar, remember he just started in August but I think he is pretty good and he has a passion for it.
