What I Learned This Week, Vol. 11

I learned a couple random things this week. Really random. But here we go again!

1. I learned that I can get along with my husband's ex-wife and her family if I have to. If you want to read more about that adventure, you can do so here.

2. I learned that zip-ties are one of the best things EVER to have around the house. What unlikely use did I find for one this week? Toddler bed rail. Yeah, I'm that kind of mom. Go here for a picture of my handiwork.

**ALERT: if you are reading my blog and are male, you may not want to learn what I learned next. Consider yourself warned.**

3. I learned that when meeting a deductible for your health insurance, the full charge for a pap smear at LabCorp is $298. And I thought the pap itself was the painful part. YEOOOWWWWWWCH!

And that's all I've got for you this time around. What did you learn this week? Head over to Musings of a Housewife and join up with the carnival!!

Very important lessons indeed but YIKES on the cost of the smear! That does hurt. And great job on the toddler bed. It looks great.

The National Health Service here may have its problems but we don't pay for these.

Hmm, might have to get some zip ties. Don't have a toddler but I'm sure I could find something useful to do with them.
