March 29 is a big day for me. I will have health insurance again! Not that I haven't been uninsured, I've been on "ObamaCare" since last August. Which means I pay way too much for nothing and have a giant deductible. So now I will only have to pay $40/mo for a great plan for myself. (Eric has his own, which would have cost a small fortune for me to join.) So I'm thrilled. The first thing I'm going to do is get an eye doctor appointment. I've been wearing the same contacts since December. They're 2-week contacts. Surprisingly, they haven't bothered me at all. Usually I can go 4-6 weeks, but this is definitely the longest stretch. I have extra ones for the right eye, but no more for the left. And my glasses need an updated prescription. So I'm thrilled that I will be able to see again. Only 11 more days!
Work has been quite busy. I feel like I've been there a lot longer than 2 1/2 months! I've been training in the Traffic department. My mom will probably find that amusing. I'm the back-up for the traffic supervisor. And she's been off for the last 5 days. It's a different world, but it's keeping me on my toes and making me use a part of my brain I haven't used in awhile. Especially since we have 3 stations that I have to keep track of. (We're NBC, CBS and CW.) It's good to learn new skills!
Alex is home this week. He has pretty much spent his days sleeping, watching tv and running. Oh, and eating. That boy can eat. It's nice that he's healthy again. He's been back running for about 2 weeks now. Oh, and how about UAlbany making the NCAA Tournament for the 3rd year in a row -- and the awesome way they got there. That was a fun game to watch.
Still waiting patiently for Spring to arrive. It didn't get above freezing today. I don't think it will tomorrow either. Hopefully, eventually, it will be warm again.
