I took my car in this morning and the super chipper service guy told me it would be just under $300 to fix the clunking in my steering wheel. Less than I thought, so it was almost good news. An hour later the same super chipper guy called back to let me know they wanted to fix something else and out the door it would be $1000. I told him we wouldn’t be doing that today. Fortunately, Eddie is super handy and can fix that issue.
We lost our mail key after holding onto it for 12 years. When we finally chased down the mail person we found a letter telling us the infusion center Eddie goes to will be out of network on our insurance as of yesterday. We are asking for an in network extension and hoping that comes through.
It is so easy to get discouraged especially when you are working hard to save for something and it seems like you have to keep taking a step back, but getting mad and frustrated doesn’t usually solve the problem (although taking it to Twitter sometimes does). I am determined not to let my temporary circumstances ruin my day.
I have learned over the past couple of years that it is really easy for me to get stressed out and obsess about things. I have to actually take a step back and think about how to problem solve for the best outcome. Sometimes that means I just have to let things play out and wait. Easier said than done.
My goal though, it to stay positive even when things get tough.
