this is a card i'd like to send to my insurance company...

i won't bore you with the details..because everyone's got their idiotic insurance tale.
bottom line: i called my insurance company to find out if something was covered.
they said yes.
i went ahead and got the services only to find out that of the $275. charged by my doctor, aetna (oops!) only covers $43.
that's not covered, that's a joke.
clearly, we need health care reform.
i don't know if obama's plan is the answer but certainly it's better than nothing.
i think.

first day of school...

ever since the girls started going to school i have taken a photo of them off to the first day.
here they are off to 11th grade.
thank goodness for all the photos i have of them off to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th grade, etc. otherwise it would be hard to believe that these two little girls are in the final stretch of high school.

i don't know why i stopped blogging but i'm glad i did...

for a long time i blogged everyday.
and then one day i didn't feel like it anymore.
so i didn't---which is what's really nice about blogging.
you can just quit.
or not.
i read a post today that really articulated what i have been thinking.
sometimes when you hit 'publish post' you really wonder..why.
why do i do this?
why do i care?
what am i getting out of this?
initially the blog was all about my cards.
i posted a new card everyday for at least a year or so.
but then it evolved or devolved
into a warm-up.
i generally post in the morning, as i've finished the paper and coffee.
thinking about the blog, what i'm going to write, what pictures i am going to post is just another way for me to organize my thoughts for the day.
sometimes i post a new card.
sometimes i post a picture of my kids (tomorrow's blog).
sometimes i just mumble.
that's it.
