Today I took B to the Baby Kennel and spent the day doing mountains of paperwork. I'm pleased to say it is now done, and it's looking good. I might just have a record breaking year this year. How exciting! I still probably won't have much money at the end of it, but hey - my hospital bill is paid, the sewer disaster is behind me; I see brighter days ahead, financially.
One thing I may do is put B back on Kaiser. It occurred to me recently that this winter while we all suffer various plagues again, it's going to be pretty disastrous to have to take the kids to two separate urgent care centers - I mean, picture them both with high fevers and me terrified; which one do I treat first? It just seems dumb to have them registered with two separate HMOs when the only difference is about $80 a month. So I'm pretty sure once my event is over I'm going to pull out of Health Net and get back on the Kaiser system for all of us.
So this begins the deluge for me personally and professionally - my sister arrives Tuesday for a week stay, then two days later we leave for Hawaii for a week, then once I get home my event is (gulp) a month away. Sooo much to do still. But it's ok. I've run this event sixteen times. If I don't have it somewhat smoothly running by now then maybe I need a career change!
