Welcome to My Sunday Post!
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Basically it’s a chance to talk about the books you bought, borrowed, blogged about, and read for the week and what’s coming in the week ahead – and then share them with a much wider blogging community. Check out the details here.

Well surgery didn’t happen on Friday like planned! The reason? Insurance sucks! To be fair, it was the surgeon that screwed up, but I just hate our health care system. Insurance companies have way too much power. Just saying.
Long story short, my surgeon’s office failed to file ANY paperwork. Not only did they not file the claim for my office visit to them, but they also didn’t do any of the preauthorization work they were supposed to do. They were supposed to get preauthorization 15 days before the surgery, something I didn’t find out about until Thursday at roughly 3pm. At 12pm I found out they were out of network all of a sudden. Grrrr! So I have to find a new surgeon – which I’ve done – go through the whole process all over again – beginning with an appointment on the 30th. Hopefully I can have surgery at the start of winter break. Grrrr.
On the plus side, I only have two days after for work this week and then it’s Thanksgiving break! Looking forward to the holiday with the family and it looks like my mom is going to come again :)! And the job isn’t so bad anymore. In fact, I’m starting to enjoy it. The kids are getting much better and they make me laugh. Everyday someone brings me a picture they made for me and I have a whole wall for their artwork. Part of me is even wondering if I might not look for a new position next year after all! *gasp* I know! After all the bitching I did. But it makes a huge difference knowing what to do and they really set me up bad at the beginning, switching me last minute to a grade I knew nothing about. Now that I get my kiddos and what they need (which is for me to be hardcore strict), it’s actually pretty good most the time. And it’s really cool to see them learning things like how to add and read. Next week they’re going to learn how to count to 50 and I’m looking forward to it, because I know they’re going to be excited to learn.
I think I’m finally at the part of teaching that was why I wanted to be a teacher. And it’s even better that I’m able to do it while working semi-reasonable hours (7:15-5:15) most days. Yes, I still bring home some work. But very little. So yes, things are much MUCH better.
COYER sign-ups have begun!! I can hardly belive it’s that time again already. I hope you can join us 🙂
I did manage to slow down the weight loss a bit – I’ve only lost two pounds this week. I don’t want to slow it up too much, but the 20 pounds in 2 weeks was a bit much. Nothing worrisome showed up on blood work, so I just haven’t been eating enough. Which is not surprising…it’s hard to eat when you get sick eating most things. Which is why I need my damn gallbladder out. Oh well. It’ll happen soon. But I’m eating a bit more. And I made it to the gym twice this week. Hoping for three times next week, especially since I’m out of work three days.
