I’ve found it liberating to let go of some of the little things in life that I considered big things. I use to get upset if someone parked in “my space” at work, now it doesn’t bother me. I use to feel like I had to work out right when I got home, but now I work out whenever I feel like it in the evening. I use to feel like I had to watch the nine o’clock evening news, but then discovered it’s pretty much the same news that comes on at five or six. I guess I found my life becoming ritualistic, which to me means I was really living my life but being controlled by it.
Steve Carell and Tina Fey will be starring in a movie together. I’m afraid it’s going to be one of those where the cast is great, but the movie is subpar.
Andre Agassi coming out about using crystal meth and wearing a wig wasn’t earth shattering news to me.
Along with flying in a fighter jet, another one of my life-long goals is to appear on Sesame Street talking to Muppets as if they are real.
For breakfast yesterday morning WifeGeeding had potato salad and chocolate milk.
I got more details about the changes to my health care plan, it turns out other than the high deductible plan I can also choose between two plans that is somewhat similar to what I’m paying now, but it will only cover the first $30,000 or $60,000 in medical coverage. I’m not sure how much pre-delivery visits are going to cost, and I’m not sure how much a delivery is going to cost, so I’m thinking I need to play it safe and choose the $60,000 option. But then again, it might just cost more than those amounts. I don’t want to sacrifice care for cost.
I get paid weekly (which I think is great btw) and my health care premium is about $55 a week to cover both me and my wife. If I choose the $30k option $65 will be taken out of my paycheck, but as soon as BabyGeeding is born $108 will be taken out. If I choose the $60k plan, then the weekly amount deducted is $81 pre-baby and $134 post-baby. Here’s the comparisons of all the plans if you are interested.
No matter how I look at it, my health care costs have increased quite a bit with less coverage. It’s going to be time to put pencil to paper and work out some numbers to see what’s in our best interest. As of right now, I wish there was another health care option for us to choose, like a public option. Maybe I can find some supplement insurance to help out with things. It’s time to do some research.
