Is Health Insurance REALLY Worth it??

Comments Off on Is Health Insurance REALLY Worth it??

Man, our health insurance is expensive. I can’t believe how expensive insurance, in general, is! It seems that most premiums are becoming out of reach of the average large family. The Hubs and I have been hashing through some of our expenses, trying to slash this or that. Insurance is where we are doing most […]

Insurance has been on my mind quite a bit these days. I can’t believe it’s been a week since our yard and basement was flooded. We are still cleaning and picking up the pieces (and we’re still hauling away all the ruined junk!). THANK GOD we had insurance. The insurance has covered just about all […]

I Have No Insurance…

March 10, 2011


… but I am STILL against Obamacare. I can’t remember the time we ever had insurance from an employer… oh wait, I think I remember. For about a year, my husband got a family health plan for us from one employer who offered it. That was… hm maybe 19 years ago… We’ve been on insurance […]

Comments Off on February: Taxes and Insurance Time….

We haven’t altered our insurance– any of it– in probably 10 years. UGH. This is the year, I guess. Since we renovated the house, we need to make note that the wiring is no longer from 1920!!! Yay! I hope that saves us something on our premium, or at least gives us better coverage. Have […]

Yeah yeah. We ALL need it. We don’t like to talk about it much, or even think about it: insurance. My Hubs was an insurance salesman for a while. What a job! It’s a lot of work for so-so pay. Some of his colleagues made a TON of money. (We did not, in case you […]

Too Much Legwork! Ugh!

I’m an old timer. Anyone over the age of 30 is an old timer, right? Reminisce with me, my old friend. Remember those olden days, way, way back when we used the CORDED telephone? Back when we had the Yellow Pages phone book? Back when we had to meet business owners and insurance agents and […]

The Problem with PDs

Comments Off on The Problem with PDs

I mentioned earlier that I *finally* got an eye exam, after 6, 7 years. I need new glasses. I have to go through the rigamarole of insurance company’s musical chairs (they will pay for an exam here, eyeglasses there, but not an exam AND eyeglasses anywhere) or pay $250+ cash out-of-pocket. Ouch. I’ve heard so […]

What Is This About Pet Insurance?

June 19, 2009


I saw a post about pet insurance at the blog Maria Michelle’s Furkids. One of her cats, Coco, has been ill with cancer, and I’ve been following the ordeal of her treatments with a mixture of shock and awe. Awe, that a cat could get cancer (I guess it just never occurred to me), and […]
