Catching Up

August 21st, 2023 at 04:43 pm

Although I've been busy, I really haven't had anything of consequence to actually report. It has been a bit expensive lately. 

We recently went for our dental check ups. DH had a tooth extracted and I had a crown as well as another tooth having a filling replaced. We have no dental insurance so it was all out of pocket expenses. Ouch. But any of the dental insurance available to us isn't really cost effective and we like our dentist and don't want to change.

My laptop was slowly dying so that was replaced. I got 7 good years out of it so I can't complain too loudly. 

Like many, we've had extreme heat and I keep pushing the a/c up so it won't run as much. Lots of water for the garden so that goes up each month.

And need I  comment on the groceries and how expensive they are? It seems like every week we pay a little more for the same items we bought the week before. 

It's getting tougher to save money.

    It's always good to hear from you! That is a good long run on the laptop. I feel your pain on the dental costs. Even with dental insurance the out-of-pocket costs are so expensive! I always notice that with groceries, when the price of one thing might go down a bit, the price of something else goes up. I just keep bargain hunting and plugging along.

    It's good to hear from you, though I'm sorry to hear about your dental issues. Most dental insurances only cover 50%, so even with insurance anything beyond a cleaning is costly.
