I know my posting has been sporadic, and it’s not because I don’t love ya, ’cause you know I do! It’s because I’ve been busy dealing with a houseful of sick children! Now, having a sick kid or two is pretty commonplace around here. This has been the first time in history, though, that I’ve had to take ALL FIVE of my children to the doctor on the same day.
Let’s do the math here, shall we?
$30 doctor visit copay x 5 kids = $150.00. Ouch. Grocery budget for the week, blown immediately.
$10 prescription copay x 4 kids who all have strep = $40.00 Sheesh. Can’t I just get a gallon jug of Amoxicillan?
Miss Kayley’s strep test was actually negative, much to my surprise, so she didn’t get a bottle of the pink stuff. So, I stand corrected, Kaiser only got $190 of my money. Boooooo! Thank God we spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars every month on insurance, so we can spend another two hundred bucks when our kids get strep throat. I’m going to divorce my husband and go on welfare. (No, not really. I’m just going to bitch about it on my blog.)
