Dear Wednesday, How in the world did I get through my day and not really realize it was Wednesday. I mean, my son didn't have school today (thank goodness he reminded me of that or I would have had him sent to the bus... but he even said it was Wednesday this morning and it must have gone in one ear and out the other), I ran my errands, made some important phone calls and saved some kick butt money on some razors so I can shave these hair legs and take my kids to the indoor pool soon and out of this heat. Oh yeah and got the kids their pictures taken for their military ID cards... again, should have known it was Wednesday by the fact that I knew to keep that appointment. Oops.
Sorry Wednesday that I kept calling you Tuesday! Please forgive me!
-I even checked the calendar on my computer to make sure it was indeed Wednesday before I labeled this thread. HAHA
Thank you for having awesome Target coupons and allowing stacking with those and manufacturer coupons. For this reason I was able to afford razors to shave these really hairy legs and can take my kids to the pool. We will be living in the pool pretty soon here because today was 82 degrees and within 5 minutes of being outside both of my kids were overheated and it won't be long before out house is that miserable!
-not looking forward to another summer with no a/c
I don't know why everyone thinks they do nothing and get handed free stuff.. I feel like trying to get medicaid is nothing but a roller coaster ride with a lot of sharp turns and deep plunges that make me puke. It certainly isn't easy to get approved. I have been denied twice now and I know that I do not make too much money. How the heck do other people get approved the first time?!
-was hoping to finally get into the doctors.
Dear DHS workers,
If you hate your job so much, please give it to me!! I understand you get some crazy people in there that can make your job unpleasant but I am nice and appreciative and even thank you for trying even when you can't help me. Please don't treat me like I am one of the jerks just because I am asking questions to make sure I did everything on my end right. Also.. please stop losing paperwork. It wasn't cheap to photocopy everything the first time.
- *sad face* that I live in an area with so many jerks that it makes it hard for us non jerks to get help.
It's a higher income allowance up here. I have friends who got medicaid for themselves and are awarded about the same amount of child support as I am. They just had to enroll their kids too (even though they had insurance through their dads) which is why my kids got enrolled in medicaid. They got approved (even though.. like I said, they already had insurance) but I was declined.. seems silly.
Red I get confused too. I made less than $600 on child support. Day care to go to work used to cost about $175 a week. I "made" too much for assistance but they were so "kind" in giving me 6 months of Medicaid, daughter a year, and six months of food stamps no more than $150. This was back in the day when microwave dinners and already prepared foods were not allowed.
I don't know what you get in child support but it seems assinine. (Sp?)
Maybe that means the county health department. There is a place here that you can get assistance or free medical if Medicaid rejects you. I haven't found out the specifics bc it seems a pain in the butt. The second Monday or something you have to call this number at 7am-10am and hope and pray you get through to start paperwork somehow. I'm sure I'd qualify, but not sure if I want to stress myself out casing other health problems in the process.
I know what you mean about marking other. My sister is always telling me that I should have no problem getting this and that because she knows x, y, z who gets all of the above.. but those people are all muslim and NOT legal citizens. While I am all for them seeking citizenship and getting approved.. how are they getting approved of medicaid, food stamps and grant money while here without citizenship. I thought their sponsors income is suppose to be counted since they are sponsoring them?! These people live with HUSBANDS who make triple what I get in child support but somehow it is now counted?! Makes no sense to me. Not sure what loophole they found except that they are not white.
I had a friend who fell on hard times she said she applied once and was denied, then someone said to mark Hispanic or other for race, and she reapplied and was accepted. I don't know if its a fluke, but I imagine she wasn't lying.
That is crazy.. I'd be too afraid of getting caught and getting in trouble for it because that would be considered fraud. *sigh*
I know so many people cheat on that stuff but it's just not something I feel comfortable with.
On a good note. I researched car seats and found a Graco Snugride 30 that fits babies as small as 4lbs and has GREAT reviews for only $79.. So I sent the link to my Mom because she was going to send clothes for my Niece's baby and she is sending that car seat instead. I am so happy about that. A safety seat is way more important than clothes. It also goes up to 30lbs so she won't have to get rid of it after a month.
Thank you so much for the coupons and magnets in the mail. 3 coupons for FREE yogurt and 3/$.30 off coupons and 3 fridge magnets. I am one happy girl. It pays off to go to the mailbox after being stressed out.
I look retarded but I am excited about my coupons and my cell phone is dead so had to use webcam! haha
Get up and get to the store.. That bleach is not going to come to you!
-Needing to bleach my basement, bathrooms and kitchen because I am going ocd on cleaning today.
Shoot.. I also need to get a spray bottle because the spray bottle for the spider spray is broken and I want to spray really good for spiders under my stairs and in the utility room and any other dark corners.
