Mission Complete

Well Happy Thursday everyone! Hope everyone is getting geared up for the weekend! I have some big plans! Actually, no I don't but, I do plan on getting together with my SIL and BIL and all the kiddos..

First of, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my SIL Jessica! She is the big 2-8 today! I am babysitting again tonight so she can go out and have some fun at dance class! Why am I not going? I will be happy to stay with the kids for her- my bday present.. as a single mommy with three kids, I am happy to give her a break! She is really improving in dancing and I hope that next round of classes we can find a babysitter for the kids so we can go together again.

Tonight I will be applying for new health insurance. In looking over my new health plan, I am predicting an absolute financial break down if I take this health plan at work and something happens, whether it be an illness or an accident. God forbid, if in 3 years when C gets home, we want to have a baby, it could cost upwards of $5K just to bring the little sucker into the world. Then if I get into a car accident and have to seek medical treatment it would cost me 100% of the bill up to a certain deductible ($1200 to be exact) then after that I would be responsible for 30%. Jees, a hospital visit can cost $3K!!! To those of you who are still on your parents health plan because you are in school- be GRATEFUL!!!! The real world sucks! Happily based on my current situation (down to one income..) and my family size and since I am moving back to MA, I can get health care through the state at a lower cost and it's MUCH better. Every state should have MAs health plan!!!

Then again, thanks so much for your support in the whole C thing. He's pulling through ok.. I should be able to talk to him this weekend, so that is a good thing! My cell phone is ON and volume TURNED UP waiting for it!

Last night I made pizza for dinner, this is a recycled picture because, yea, I made the same kind of pizza. I wasn't feeling the creativity.


I completed my goal from yesterday though! I worked out for 40 minutes last night and 25 this morning! Yahoo! : )
Todays goal is to get my health insurance forms filled out and look over all my bills. Very boring. I know! Life is tough!!!

  1. MA health insurance really IS great; until I went back to school, I had Commonwealth Care, and it didn't cost me ANYTHING! Plus, I had NO copays, and my perscriptions were only one or two dollars. I sure hope you're looking into CC. If not, you totally should!!!!!

    Great job with sticking to your goals! Be proud!!<333

  2. I'm taking a course on access to health care law, which is very interesting. And what I'm learning from it: we should all move to Sweden lol!

    Good luck with everything :)

  6. Props for sticking with your goals!! I hate health insurance. Majorly. But I too will say that MA health care is really helpful and I'm glad that you'll have that to cover you. I'm with Anais though--we should all move to Sweden.
