Extra Busy Thursday

I got up at 5:30 and stripped my bed this morning to wash bedding and underwear. I should have done that last Thursday but had that awful cold and didn't feel up to it so I waited an extra week.

We will have tuna cakes for lunch today with fried potatoes, a veggie and salad. I still have two cupcakes for our dessert.

Aime will be in the library at 3:30 for an interview with me. I don't know what that is about but I'll find out this afternoon.

I received a letter from Blue Cross/Blue Shield yesterday telling me they will be changing  the draft of their premium. Right now that premium (for my supplement) comes out on the 5th of the month. Unfortunately, I don't get my social security until the 2nd Wednesday of each month so some times I have to get into my meager savings to make sure there is enough money in there for that premium.   But in May there will be an even larger problem. They tell me they will take the May premium out on the usual...then on May 28th, they will take an additional  $241.97 out for the June premium.  After that, it will always come out on the 28th of the month for the following month. My problem is that two premiums in May. Blue Cross/Blue Shield doesn't seem to realize many of us just don't have an extra $241.97 for that second May (June) premium.  Disgusting! Again...I will have to hit my savings.

More later...

I scanned the rest of the paperback books this afternoon. I don't know what scanning  Katie will have me doing next. 

I had used Cyndi's homemade furniture polish recipe and did all my furniture and some of the trim in the apartment. The fumes were overwhelming so Bob and I went over to "Just Us" and had their buffet instead. Today we will finish off our hamburger pie. When I got home from work, the fumes had dissipated.  He came over later for ice cream and we watched Forensic Files until 7:00 and then he went home and I took my bath and Missy and I sat in the recliner and watched TV until bedtime.

I went to bed at 9:00.

It costs too much to live, Margie...but it costs too much to die, also. We have a supplement through my teacher retirement. The supplements are a burden, but I am always thankful for having it when we do go to the doctor.

I hope you have some sunshine out there in Kansas this week.

I too have a supplement. That's what the additional premium is all about. It comes out of my bank automatically though.
