I’m mildly concerned about our financial situation. The cost of health insurance through my work is going up drastically now that there are two of us. I should have looked into it before adding Mat on but didn’t think the cost was as bad as it clearly is. I talked to the district today because they’ve been taking forever to get my name changed on the insurance and get Mat his card, and when I got home today we discussed the possibility of stopping my insurance and just using his. But, that presents a problem for my birth control pills because I currently get them through mail order and I don’t know if Mat’s insurance offers that. Plus, what if something happens with his job and we don’t have my insurance? We also considered dropping his, which wouldn’t save quite as much money but would still help…I don’t know what we’re going to do. It’s complicated by the fact that I don’t know what my paychecks will be since the district switched us to 11 paychecks per year from our usual 10, yet they’re keeping health insurance costs and union dues and retirement deductions on the 10 month plan. This means we see less money per month, even though I actually got a small raise this year.
I’m hoping the ads on here will kick in and help some. I need to publicize more! Or something. How do the big bloggers get to the top? I want to be closer to the top!
We’re still buying a house though. We just gotta figure out what, if anything, to change with our health insurance. And try to talk down our cable bill. There are always solutions, right?
Have I ever mentioned that I want this kind of doggy once we have a house?
So. Stinkin. Cute.
Corgis are awesome. We are getting a Corgi. It has been decided.
