Weekend Recapping

Happy Monday, guys and dolls!  Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  Ours was kind of a hit and miss but there were some highlights:

-- Friday night we went to dinner with our neighbors across the street at our favorite little Mexican restaurant down the road.  On our way home I received a phone call that made the night AWESOME! Back in December I had emergency gallbladder surgery - well long story short, thanks to the crappy insurance we had, MY portion of the bill was over $60,000!!!! Yes, you read all of those zero's correctly.  Anywho.... we've already paid over $7,000 towards that bill since May.  Well, on Friday night the billing company called and said that thanks to us being what they called "underinsured" that our NEW balance was now only $1,330.63 and did we want to pay that off in full today?! Ummm... what just happened?! Of course, we said YES!!!!  Come to find out that after MONTHS of us fighting with the hospital and our insurance company (because, come on, that was ridiculous for a TWO day stay in the hospital - that amount didn't include the doctors, surgeons, nothing - that was just for the stay), they decided to give us a "charity" discount and that $1,330.63 was the remaining balance after that plus all we had already paid towards it.  Hello FREEDOM!!! Whoop Whoop - talk about a HUGE relief off our shoulders!!

-- Saturday it began to really start raining, but we had errands to run and groceries to get, so we got out and took care of a few things that morning.  By 11 a.m., however, we were back home and watching our Hogs take on Auburn.  Talk about a NAIL BITER - it went into FOUR Overtimes but we actually pulled it out and won the game!  It was a MUCH needed win and definitely one that had us on the edge of our seats the entire game.  
Once the heart attacks were over, we left to run more errands and grab dinner.  We got home and had just settled in bed to catch up on our DVR shows and then BOOM our power went out - ARGH!!!!!!!  Well, come to find out, it wasn't an actual power outage, our main breaker on the breaker box burnt up and melted.  Of course, it was pouring down rain, so there wasn't any way our landlords could get an electrician out there that night at 8 o'clock, so we just hunkered down and read, and went to sleep early.  Talk about being miserable trying to get stuff done that needed to be cooked and cleaned on Sunday without electricity - blah.  It was okay to rough it for the night, but I was SO happy to have our power back on Sunday by 1 p.m.! 

-- Sunday, once our power was restored, I was finally able to cook and clean and start preparing for the week ahead.  Did I mention I am starting another Whole 30 today? I eat mainly Paleo as it is, but wanted to get my body back on track before Thanksgiving hits and this is the way to do it.

Today I have a class for work and will be out of the office all day, but at least the rain has stopped. However, we are experiencing some nice COOL weather today and I am SUPER excited about that and being able to dress a little warmer today - I'm sure the classroom will be frigid this morning.

So, what about you?  What did you do over the weekend?  Anything special?  Can't wait to catch up! Thanks for stopping by lovies! :)

Lots of love and hugs,
