LAID OFF...

Short post since I'm crabby pants today. I got swept up in the middle of lay offs. What does a girl do? Why, go to HEB to buy 32 rolls of toilet paper and a can of refried beans. Why? Who the heck knows. It was all I could manage to get in the cart since I wasn't really processing. Guess I'm having toilet paper encrusted beans for lunch. Good thing the kids are not here to indulge with me.

Seriously...God if you are listening...I get it...this is a test. Can it be over now, please. I think I deserved my A and now I am just getting pretty ticked off at the constant pestering. I will not be taken down and I will not fail...so do me a favor and get off my ass, ok? Are we good?

So, of course, as the parent of a type 1 the only thing I am seriously stressing over is the insurance. Lily was on my plan. Cobra? Sure...for a price of $1600 a month! No problem...good thing I planted that money tree last week. Must remember to water it tonight. WTF?

I can only muster up sarcasm today so I am going to eat my toilet paper bean thingy and drink a beer. Have a good weekend.

  2. Oh hon I'm SO sorry!!! Maybe there's more time for COBRA Subsidies, or you could keep just L on COBRA and hang tight for you and A. Tina's husband also sells health insurance, I can give you his email address, if you're interested in a quote. Again, so sorry!

  10. Praying for you my friend. I KNOW you will find something; KNOW you will succeed. COBRA is not affordable and Child Health care covered by the state is not offered until COBRA wears out. But check. Obama did have a program where he paid about half of the COBRA payments for you so it was half priced because of all the unemployment. Don't know if it is still in effect. Again. Check. Can she go on her father's insurance until you find a new job? Hugs and prayers.
