1. We survived two very hot days without air-conditioning. As fate would have it, the very next day after getting it fixed, the temps outside dropped nearly thirty degrees. Ah yes, spring in suburban D.C.
2. I successfully convinced a medical service provider that they were double charging me because my FSA had already paid the patient balance due. A "zero payment due" letter is on the way. This took several phone calls and (very) long times on hold while keeping 8 children quiet enough to explain the problem.
3. I am remaining calm about the swine flu.
