Comments: Highs and Lows and Suggestions

I think you meant, Congress would have to wear them until they passed a budget.

Otherwise they would be wearing the "bunny suit" from A Christmas Story.

Oh you are right. Nobody is REALLY trying. What a joke.

That's a fantastic idea! Can you picture Pelosi in a pink feather... never mind, I think she already has one.

Good luck with the surgery! Never heard of a $6,000 deductible. Thought ours was bad at $2500! :(

Pam- Yeah, I think it's akin to catastrophic insurance. Actually, our deductible is $7000. We just already met $1000 of it earlier in the year.

Our accountant is always harassing us, 'Why don't you put the max amount in your HSA?" to which I reply, "Uhh... cuz we don't have that max amount?" Who has that kind of extra cash? Evidently we'll be funneling it through HSA now as I try to pay down my credit card. Good grief.

By the way, this is the kind of deductible people have when they have to buy their own insurance. We're self insured. It is $10000 to insure our family of 5 w/a $7000 deductible.

Good luck with your surgery. I hope they give you plenty of painkillers. You don't need the hassle.

I'm glad the boys are learning how to cook. It's an essential skill for MEN too!

Good luck with the surgery. Yeah, it's damned expensive to be self insured. You do need to get that hernia fixed though so it's one of those things where it's just.... bite the bullet. *sigh*

Now I want a pair of bug boots. Maybe not the tiara but definitely the boots. ;)

George- Yeah, I'll get drugs. It guarantees me at least 24 hours sleep and then I'm being back to Sleepless in WPB. So done with that...

They can cook an actual meal. They grill all the time. And they've baked bread and muffins, but this is the first time they've made cookies from scratch. Odd...

Teresa- I'm uncomfortable enough for long periods of time that I need to get it fixed. Plus, it looks bad in my gowns.

Bones just informed me they are... frog boots. Whoda thunk it?
