Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more.
The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54
I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. A lot. We’re going to need to figure out how to drum up some fundage to make up for that unexpected extra.
So then, just to rub money in my face, I get this in the mail Thursday:
I had to make the decision at the end of July to let my PCIP insurance lapse, even though I didn’t want to because I was behind on payments. I didn’t pay August and I assumed by now that I had long since been cancelled. I figured I would reapply in February when the mandatory 6 month waiting period to reapply would expire.
But then I get this. And of course I don’t have $711 – especially not after spending nearly $800 Friday – but it’s still like a tease. You can have insurance right now again with no interruption! Yeah, as if. Not to mention, I’ve already met my deductible for this year too and it’d be nice to take advantage of that.
I actually really liked having insurance and I miss it. It’s scary being back without it again. So I feel taunted by it being close…and yet totally and completely out of reach yet again.
Anyway, just kinda one of those frustrating things where you think you’re doing pretty darn good, then you realize how easily things get all screwed up again because of money. Blarg.
