Good morning.
It's another busy week in the Salon, and that is good. I've also been busy in the yard. The weather is warming this week and I've been able to work in the yard in the morning before work. Wednesday, I hauled the rest of the 100 or so plants from areas in the yard up to the gravel area by the garage. I now have all 300+ by the garage. I can now use one sprinkler to water them all. Thursday morning, more weeding, and Thursday evening, more weeding. The weekend is also looking good. Rain today and tomorrow, but sunny Sunday and Monday, so I hope to get even more weeding done. I'd say I'm just over half way there.
We're also looking at another health insurance policy. Our rate is going up again in June. The policy we're looking at is only a 1000/2000 deductible/co-pay where as our current one is a 2500/5000 deductible/co-pay. The new one does not cover yearly physicals or office visits like our current one , but does cover colonoscopies. We would save about $35 per month each with the new one. Since we seldom go the doctor, I'm thinking the new one would be a better choice. And Craig had polyps at his last colonoscopy, so he is suppose to have one again next year. And me again in 4 years. They run around $1300.00. We're meeting with an agent next week to decide.
Well, that's all I've got for now.
Have a great weekend!

    Hey Wayne, choose you health plan very wisely and plan for the worse, because you never know....I was having problems with my spine and during one of the MRI exams, they discovered a cancerous tumor in kidney, now the kidney has to be removed. I had no ill effects from it so am in shock at having to have it removed. But I was told if I do not have it removed now, I will be dead in less than two years. Fortunately I do have very good insurance that covers it all.

  2. Hope you guys have a really great wee"d"end. Oh come on, go ahead and giggle, you know you want too... :) - G

    I agree with the first post.... Choose the best policy for the worst circumstances. I have Blue Cross Blue Shield (individual policy) and it goes up every year, currently $582 a month, $20 office copay, $10 for generic meds, $35 for name-brand meds.

    Who would have thought that a flu shot could attack my spine... $117,000 dollars later after a two week hospital stay. Out-of-pocket was about $6,000. You just never know.


  4. Good luck with finding insurance. *hugs* Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Wow! Your gardening details sound massive! It should be quite a sight when it's all done.

    Good luck on the insurance search.
