First let me say that I got the bill for my "emergency surgery". drum roll please..... The total? This little event of gynecological wonder cost my insurance company over $42,000.00. My love and I will shoulder a not insignificant part of that burden ourselves.
$42,0000.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To NOT have a baby.
So I thought about that this weekend when I went to pick up my Rx for birth control and was told that it was $51. $51!?!?! With insurance??
But then I thought about the alternatives to birth control (birth and ectopic pregnancy) I have explored and they are both a whole lot more money.
And the up side is I will probably have a pretty good deduction on taxes for 2008.
This post is about my tattoo. And about the fact that I laughed out loud this weekend. For the first time in - well I can't remember when.
I was relieved when the weeping stopped. Very relieved. But I cannot tell you how relieved I am that the laughing has started again...
I will be getting the color on my tattoo next weekend.
I may wait until then to post a picture but I will tell you that it is bigger than you expect it to be and prettier than I expected it to be...
Oh and it hurt.
More to follow.
