Colonoscopy - Sort Of

January 23rd, 2018 at 07:42 am

This morning I collected a sample for a colonoscopy. No procedure needed! No prep! I'm sure you've seen the ads on TV. It was pretty simple to do. I don't know what it will cost me, but it is supposed to be covered by Medicare, so I can count on 80% being covered, anyway.

My doctor says that if they don't get the result they want, I will need to do the "real" colonoscopy next year, rather than in ten years.

I can't tell you how much better this was than doing the real one.

Yesterday I got a check from the Indiana BMV. They had overcharged for a number of years, including the years I lived there, and I turned in a claim in the class settlement. The check I got was $4.50! I guess they didn't overcharge by much. Oh well, it's $4.50 I didn't have before.

I picked up the boys after school yesterday, but it was so warm, they wanted to play on the playground for a long time. By the time they were ready to go their dad was home. He had gone in to work to shut things down. Now he's going back today to open things up again! And it's only three more weeks or so that is guaranteed. He is so over being a federal employee.

Anyway, my point is, there was no time to swing by McDonald's or anything like that, and I had another no-spend day.

I did not make the apple crisp yesterday. I hope I will get to it today, but if I pick up the boys again that will take a chunk out of my day.

I made an omelet for breakfast yesterday with the caramelized onions, and it was delicious! I'm thawing some leftover fried rice now, to which I will add some of the onions and another egg. After pay day, when I can buy some more ingredients, I'm going to follow Frugal Foodie's suggestions and make a potato-onion casserole and an onion quiche. And I'm going to have the onions as a side dish per Lucky Robin's suggestion. That should take care of all of it!

I love our community of sharing!

    Great job on the NSD! My DH bought a box of those French's/Durkee's fried onions--and bought caramelized by mistake. I should try some of your ideas with the fried ones.

    Glad your NSD worked out. And now I'm hungry for an omelet with cartelized onions!

    Glad your not a colonoscopy test worked out. Hope you get a good result.

    Don't spend that "huge" class settlement check all in one place.
