Weekly Ephemera #39

  • On Monday we had a call with our healthcare broker.  By keeping our taxable income low next year our monthly health insurance will drop from $555 to $144.  We did not expect this at all.  A side effect of keeping out taxable income so low is the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services is contacting me by email and text asking if I'm interested in getting food stamps and other poverty relief assistance.
  • I took Mom to her last doctor's appointments of the year.  She's passed all her tests with flying colors. Yay!
  • The weather will be changing later this week.  More about this in a later post I suspect.  If the forecasts pan out it's going to be chilly.
  • I walked only once this week.  One of my walks was drizzled (and lazy-ed) out.  Since I felt a little guilty for that I pushed myself a bit on Friday and walked 10.5 miles (16.9 km).  When I got home my left thigh was killing me.  I was hobbling around even after I took pain pills.  It took a couple days to totally recover.  I once thought that ten miles was an easy hike. I think this is just another sign that I have become too sedentary (and older).  I am planning to walk twice this coming week - Monday and Wednesday - before the real cold arrives.
