- I'm tired. I went to M's house last night to do a few things and it ended up being way longer than I expected. But, I made a difference so that's good. And, oh, oops, we realized that the new dishwasher has a handle, thus making it impossible to open the drawer next to it fully.
- I also am so excited-ish to be able to make my place better. I sorted through crap last night and got a whole bag full of recycling.
- I am also excited in an odd way that M is not in town this coming weekend. I have some time to myself, and a good friend is coming to visit for half the weekend, and maybe even helping me do stuff.
- I now know I HAVE to rent. I was waffling, but then some stupid jerk put a house on the market around the corner from me for about $150k less than value. ARG!!!! So, gotta start on that process. But apparently it'll be good tax-wise, since we won't own a home.
- I'm not sure how I feel about the health care bill. I don't know enough to have an opinion. In theory, sounds great. But, the devil is in the details. And it might be literal in this case. But, here I approach having no health insurance unless through COBRA or M's insurance, which I'm not sure allows domestic partnership (forced marriage for health insurance???).

OK, work. Have a great day!

Have a great day Pam!

I think I'm happy about the health bill. Wish the gov would trim fat on the budget, but not in health care or education. How's about military... hmmmm...

I heard about Obama signing off on the health bill.. but don't know much and although it doesn't really affect me per say.. I'm sure if I was a traveller to U.S.A I would want some coverage..??

Hope the weeding out stuff goes better for ya..

I will be interested in hearing how being the landlord is! I've always been on the other side of that equation :-)
I'm pro the health bill, and am happy it went through.

I want everyone to have health care coverage, so I hope the bill helps with that.

Good luck on the land lording.

150k LESS than the value?

*sigh* Well, that sorta seals it, huh?
Health insurance is a business--and it certainly seems it's been a lucrative one to date.
Since Iowa legalized same-sex marriages insurance companies have celebrated the loss of the 'partner' coverage. Less for them to insure, it would seem. Has it cut the cost to the premium holders? LOLOL Don't make me laugh....

Thanks Seb! ;-)
Mrs. thanks, I hope it will too.
Laura-we'll see. Maybe M will do it for me...
Thanks Churlita!
Mel, found out that there were bids much higher - I guess it was a good tactic.
