Wow, it’s already the 1st day of September…the first Wednesday of the month of September…Hump Day for the work week.
I’m on my own today as the gal I was replacing due to her retirement after 26-years, won’t be in today. It was a bittersweet day…lots of hugs, tears…but now, the real deal begins!!!
I’m pretty sure I can handle whatever is thrown at me…I’m a bit disturbed over the health insurance/health savings account deal…basically, I won’t be covered under this plan until I’ve reached the $3000 deductible. Which means that I won’t be able to continue my arthritis medication unless I can finance it on my own. There is no co-pay…there’s only a deal where I can match the $40 a month the firm puts in the account designated to me/for me…I can contribute as much as I want to the account, but otherwise, that’s pretty much it as far as health coverage. I also have a pre-existing, auto-immune disease, which is rheumatoid arthritis, so, that’s going to exclude me from most of the benefits as well.
Let’s just say, I’m working again but I still have no health insurance coverage…so, I will just do my best to remain healthy the next couple of years, keep looking for a job that has decent health insurance, if there is such a thing any more…and maybe in a couple of years when my car is paid off, I’ll be able to pay for my own comprehensive, fully covered, health insurance. Such is life!!
I had to go and buy my own keyboard…I can’t work on the little straight keyboard that is currently at that desk…I’ve been using the curved keyboard for the pay 10-years, so I’ve been having a real difficult time typing the last couple of days…mission accomplished, I found a great, new, curved keyboard at Office Depot last night…there wasn’t any way I was going to sit and listen to the President’s speech last night…just nothing he can say that is anything I want to hear…especially on the topic of war and our troops. And from what I gathered from the news reports last night and this morning…really wouldn’t have been worth the 19-minutes!!
So, I’m trying to get awake and functioning to get in the shower…it lightening and thundered through out the night…even rained some, still sprinkling now…so, maybe it will be a cloudy, rainy day…which is always easier to be in the office getting things accomplished.
Time for another cup of coffee and get the day underway…have a great Hump Day!!!
