Hey moms and grandmas, come on out and play. It's recess time!
On the phone with the insurance company because they rejected all of the claims for ds' counseling for the year. Gack. I hope it's just a matter of how it's coded. Drat those billing codes, which of course changed on January 1st. The counselors are a new practice and they don't have a secretary/billing person, and figuring out the billing thing has been a trial for them! I think I have it straightened out now, at least as to what they need to re-submit it as to get it covered. I ended up with a nice, helpful person on the other end of the phone at least.
Today is Law Day! DD is looking forward to the actual event after all this time. We're both ushering, plus she of course is attending. I think it'll be really interesting. I read the case briefs too so I think I'm up to speed on it all. Before Law Day is music lesson, and afterwards she sees her nutritionist. And tonight after supper I have to go back to town and get groceries. No rest for the wicked, evidently.
We are to get very significant flooding this weekend, because there's 2-4" more rain to hit tonight thru Friday morning. The water hasn't even fully receded from the last flood...plus the ground is completely saturated. Last week's flood crested at 27 feet. The next flood is predicted to crest at 32 feet. In 1986...the "big flood"...it crested at 34 feet and the town was inundated. That was the only time my parents' basement ever flooded (thankfully not badly!) At least there's warning. We got a fax just before I left work, from emergency management, with that info in it, which is more than the weather forecasts are saying at this point. So I was able to warn my parents and the neighbors (who actually flooded worse except it was before they lived there). My dad is going to empty out his shed today and secure it with a cable, and work on figuring out how to prevent water coming in the basement if possible. They just got repairs done in the basement...last week. As in, whole new shower, etc. So I hope it doesn't flood. We're none of us as young as we were in 1986 when we carried everything, and I mean everything, up out of the basement as the water was coming in. Only things we didn't move were the piano, freezer, and washer/dryer...and those got put up on blocks. So not fun!!!!! Praying the rain stays away. I would be happy with sunshine, truly. I'd even take 100 degrees if it would help the extra water evaporate!
