Happy birthday, Kim! Fantasy and reality clash again, eh? I know they certainly do in my life. If he wants to go to the Keys, which is a long ways away from Tampa, is that something he may just enjoy on his own? I guess pretty much what Roh said. I hope the vacation works for you both! Enjoy!
I have the same insurance problem. Currently my only income is from the private long-term disability insurance coverage I had when employed, and it's just a fraction of what I used to bring home. I did the Marketplace scam, and they actually offered one with $0 monthly premiums, so I took it. The deductible is astronomical, so it's useless "insurance." Any plan that had "normal" doctor visit costs, better prescription coverage, etc., was totally out of the realm of possibility for me due to the monthly premium costs. Can't win.
I have one particular medicine that is very expensive, but it's hard to function without it...I'm in tears all the time over stupid money issues. Just need to finish school and get back in the workforce. Sigh. Won't happen this year.
Kim, you have come back gangbusters. I appreciate all your informative posts. Thanks so much...Planning a little ahead and cooking ahead sounds great.
Helene - I never realized I could store oatmeal and just reheat. Don't know why I hadn't tried it before. DUH! I just bought some oatmeal and that's exactly what I will try because I get tired of cooking it every day, which I haven't done in a long time anyway. If I had a magic wish, I think I would seriously consider having a personal chef. Since that isn't reality, I am trying to care enough about me to take care of me. Gotta be honest, though...I'm having a ROUGH weekend. Hard to stop the tears.View Thread
