I’ve loved spending this weekend at home and feeling like one of the kids again. With Caleb home the family dynamic seems to revert back two years (or more) and with a mother who cooks for me, I feel like twelve years old. Today though, we’re back on the road en route to Cincinnati where we’re embracing adulthood. It has its perks, but one thing I’ve been dreading since moving here is figuring out all our medical stuff. Now that we’re off our parents’ insurance and in a new place, I need to find dentists and doctors (and this is when adulthood starts getting overrated). I was excited to hear that Walgreens’ is opening health clinics in many of their stores (we have one right down the street) and looked into it last week to see if they’d work for us.
I really love that we can use Walgreens until we find a local doctor that we like and trust. If anything happened to us right now I would have no idea what doctor to go to and I hear urgent care is incredibly expensive despite insurance. Walgreens Healthcare Clinics will be perfect for our transition here in the midwest and give me the time to figure out who I want for our primary care physician (the clinic coordinates with your primary care provider if a Walgreens trip happens to be easier/cheaper and you already have a doctor!). Here are a few other benefits I liked:
