Financial Matters for Today

November 4th, 2015 at 11:43 pm

It's 4:29 and it's raining, and it's starting to be really dark. F has practice (at least they haven't called it yet) under the lights at the park at 5:30. Brrrr! But the girls are always up for more soccer. I need some heavier clothes!

Tonight's frugal dinner is tuna melts and a salad.

So here's another cost-saving thing: I was told by my Physical Therapist (still working on my back pain) that I should temporarily stop eating sugar. She said it's an inflammatory food, and I'm inflamed, and we need to give it a chance to go down. This should save some money but it's sad because sugar is pretty much the only vice I have left! I was way better after today's visit, so that's good.

This week I also figured out our new health insurance. Do you need to switch insurance for 2016? We do because Blue Cross has pulled out of individual coverage in our state. They wanted to raise premiums 50% and the state said no. Our new plan seems good; I used to be with this company and liked them.

The last bit of news from today: F is one of two kids from her class going to the school spelling bee. This has been a goal of hers since 3rd grade! The other student is her best friend, and they are making plans to study together. Her words were moxie, bewilder and lavender. Not as hard as some of the ones on the list: polemic, platinum... but she knew all of them; they only had two days to study!

Now on my list:
- put drawings in my FTP folder so my client can give them to the Purchasing Department
- finish the school recipe book so we can start selling it for holiday gifts
- meet a contractor at his lot to check him out for completion
- call an accountant to set up an FSA (or something else?)

    Thankfully BCBS is still an individual provider here in NE, so no switching necessary. (Although if I was still in NM, that's the plan we were on ...)

    Did you get snow today? I saw on my FB feed that NM was getting hit with snow and some schools closed for a snow day.
