Key Ring Thing

What I learned this week is brought to you by Musing of a Housewife -


This week it is also brought to you by MY MOM!

My mom, who called me today just to tell me about Keyringthing.com - you might remember when she told me about the Hide em and Find em Eggs and the wild goose chase that ensued...

Well I am happy to report that this is no wild goose chase and I am thrilled to have learned about Key ring thing.

You know all those cards in your wallet or on your keyring? The one for your grocery store, the hardware store, the drugstore, hallmark, DSW and whatever other loyalty programs you may belong too...well Keyringthing.com helps you consolidate YES put them all in ONE place! Holy cow are you kidding? NOPE. I told you I was excited. And to top it all off they are FREE, FREE, FREE!

All you have to do is login, register your cards and they send 1 count them ONE card that you carry and swipe at all those places! I registered mine tonight before I typed my post and I will let you know when I get it!

ON THE HOME FRONT:

I also learned that when you go to the Dr. to talk about your daughters ailments...you might walk out even more empty handed than you thought you would.

Yes I got the name of the ENT or Otolaryngolist whichever you prefer...Yes I called and made an appointment for a consultation but guess for when?

MAY 12th.

Are you kidding? How long does this poor girl have to suffer? Plus after the consultation it takes 3 to 4 weeks before surgery. ARGH. How come these people don't work on my schedule? Don't they know I will be waiting and worrying and waiting and worrying until I get more information? Darn them.

SIDE NOTE: The first giveaway is ending tonight over Tales from the Nightstand...stop by and enter, new one starts tomorrow so subscribe while your their so you don't missout!

It's crazy how long those apppointments take.
That card sounds like a good idea.

Bonnie said...

Your Mom is the best at finding great stuff!! I have the kingring site written down and I'm going to do it soon. Whoever came up with that is a genious.. I'm forever leaving the card I need at home or taking it off my keychain. I never seem to have the one I need when I need it.


I feel you (and Haile's) pain.. We went through that a lot with Mark and the waiting was so stressful sometimes. Maybe they will have a cancellation. I will cross my fingers!

Bonnie said...

oops, left out the y in Hailey. So y does she have to wait so long to go to the dr.. sorry, I think I better get some coffee.

I just don't get the whole 6 - 8 week wait thingy trying to get in to see a specialist. So frustrating as a parent.

And the key ring thingy is pretty much genius, except I'd probably need about TWO! I hate those card thingies -- it's such a marketing SCAM!

Thanks for sharing the keyring thing! I love it!! Great find by your mom!
Sorry to hear about the long wait for Hailey. Specialists always seem to have such a backlog!

Julie said...

Sounds like a great idea =) I'll have to check it out.

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

Oh, I am so checking that key thing out! Very cool.

I hope they figure it all out with your daughter. I can't believe how long you have to wait. Is there another doctor you can go to?

Lindsay said...

oo wow thats crazy long time. I hope they get her in sooner! I called the dermatologist the other day. I had a mole disappear when I was teenager. They said if it ever came back to go in to get it checked. The first office scheduled me for August 24th!!! I called the other 3 and finally got one scheduled for for May 15th.. I hope Hailey starts to feel better soon!

Krape Family said...

My goodness. How frustrating??? Like it isn't hard enough. Lets hope April flies by (I feel like it is already).

So sorry to hear that you daughter has to wait for an appointment. Hopefully it will go by quick and all of your questions will be answered.

Just found your blog through Musings of a Housewife...glad I did. I'll be back to read more later. Thanks.

I've never heard of the keyring thing...sounds like a super idea.I am definitely going to check it out.
Maybe you can get an earlier appointment if they have a cancellation at the doctor.

jen@odbt said...

I could definitely use the keyring thing - when my key ring holds more cards than keys, it kind of looks tacky.

Sorry you didn't get any answers at the doctor's. How frustrating for you and Hailey.

Megan said...

Holy cow, love the keyringthing!

And, I totally know how you feel about your daughter and the dr.

Last year Drew had blood and I mean at end of his urination, pure blood would come out. I nearly freaked. I rushed him to the prompt care and then to the pediatrician. They wanted a sonogram done on his kidneys and bladder to check for any abnormalities, but couldn't do it for over a month! What? The poor little guy was peeing blood!

After throwing a huge fit, it got scheduled for two days later...hmmm!

Any who, everything was fine. He was drinking too much milk and not enough water and his urine was crystalizing from the calcium. This then caused him to get irritated in his urethra and thus the blood at the end of his urination.

He is fine now, but talk about a huge scare. Sorry for such a long comment.

Courtney said...

Don't I totally know how you feel! Its awful how long you have to wait to see the specialist around here! Prayers going out to you and your family! keep me updated!

Six Feet Under Blog said...

Ive never heard of a card like that. I wonder if that would work for me. Good luck on the appointment thing.

Tip for the ENT from the ENT Living Lady (what my sister calls me...I swear!).

Call your insurance company and find out who is covered. Don't just go off your doctors recommendations. I found my ENT this way, and LOVE HIM, Boo's too. They can even tell you if they have a pediatric ENT, which most offices do now a days.

I am going to have to look into the Key Ring Thing...sounds like it might help our house!

Musings of a Housewife said...

whoopsadasie said...

Poor Hailey...I feel your pain, Terra!
