      • I got a letter in the mail a few weeks ago from the VA. Usually I will open these and at least make sure I'm still in good standing with the VA. Most of the letters I get pertain to my mortgage and can be ignored as they're just info letters, not requests for action.

        Anyhow, I opened this one and read it and then set it aside with the intent of calling about it. It was about health insurance coverage and the Affordable Care Act. So I just called and learned that because of my 50% disability rating, I am considered "Priority 1", which gives me free health care at any VA facility. If I climb a ladder and break my arm, free repairs at the VA. If I need a pap-smear, it's free at the VA (but with the ACA, it'll also be free everywhere else as long as I have insurance). My rating provides the insurance premium free, co-pay free, and prescription cost free, as long as I go to a VA clinic or another clinic approved by the VA (like if the nearest VA facility was too far away, I could go to a regular doctor with prior authorization and what not).

        Anyhow, i wonder how this impacts my insurance requirements to remain on Brad's insurance. To remain on his policy, I have to also hold my own if one is offered to me by my employer. One is, so I have my own insurance, but also use his as secondary. His family policy includes a spouse and one child for the same price as a spouse and two children, or three children, etc. So, TECHNICALLY, he insures the kids and I'm tossed in for free, so pulling me off his coverage when I got this job did not benefit us financially, so we left it the way it was. BUT, if I didn't carry my own policy from my employer, my inclusion on his policy would cost us an additional $250 a month... yikes.

        I wonder if this VA policy would satisfy that requirement to avoid that $250 fee... I should call and find out. If it does, then I'll ditch my work insurace, save the money each month, and use his for my chiro appts and then use the VA insurance if I get sick... That would help tremendously... something to seriously consider.

        Trying to decide if I want to go to the gym or not. I was considering lifting again starting today, but I feel like I can't give it my whole focus since I'm still in training/maintaining for the remaining half marathons, and I like to give things my whole focus or not do anything with them at all. That and I feel kind of lazy today. Maybe some Vitamin D therapy will be enough - take a walk and call it good. I just don't feel like doing legs and having sore legs tomorrow when I run... or doing upper body stuff and having a sore upper body when I run tomorrow. I don't know what I want to do... *sigh* it doesn't help that TOM is here and I'm having some mild cramps - and I'm hungry so I want to eat. My two eggs didn't last very long.

        Screw it... I'm eating lunch and not taking a walk or lifting or anything right now. Brady has flag football practice tonight so maybe I can walk a walk during that.

        • My gut is very unhappy today. Not sure if it's Shark Week related or related to "other gut processes"... Thinking about making a stop at the pharmacy on the way home b/c I eat all the right foods (high fiber and what not - been eating a lot of summer fruits like watermelon, plums and peaches. Maybe I need some KE tea... I think I'll have some tea. That always seems to help.

            • Ps: remind me what KE tea is? Is that niaid's concoction? I need to get me the tea she uses...sounds like just the thing to have on hand.

              • Yeah, it's the one I came up with. Half tazo calm, half green tea. You could also use sleepytime tea in place of the tazo calm, although it lacks the hibiscus.

                  • No worries on the name. Happens all the time with both my online nick and my RL name.
                    I use loose, but bags work just fine. I just prefer loose.

                    • Whole30 Day 11. Up 2 lbs. I think I'm carrying around a lot of luggage in my gut. Thanks Shark Week for slowing things down. Hoping some KE tea and a 4 mile run will speed things along. Running usually gets the gut working with a sense of urgency.

                      Today's 9/11. If you didn't already do so, please have a moment of silence for those who lost their lives on that horrible day and in the campaigns since then. No matter your political view of the wars, people have died and we need to remember them.

                      Feeling munchy today. I have two apples and a peach on my desk. The peach as a bruise and seems rather "firm" in other areas still so I'm interested but apprehensive. Yesterday's peach was crunchy and I'm not a fan of crunchy peaches. I put the rest of my peaches on the counter to help ripen them.

                      ** How do you tell someone that their slip is peeking out from under their skirt tactfully? The military is in dress blues today (for 9/11) and one of the female soldiers is wearing her dress skirt. Her black slip is peeking out by an inch... I want to tell her without being tactless or embarass her.

                      Hot office guy stopped in for a visit today in his Dress Blues. OH. MY. GOD. Total gorgeousness. He is a beautiful specimen. I wish I could get a pic of him to share with you girls. *heartthrob* And he's genuinely nice to boot.

                      ANYHOW... it's almost time to run. Headed out for 4 miles today. It's 79 degrees right now. It supposed to get up to 90. Slight chance of rain. I wish it would rain. Our grass is so dry your feet get dusty when you walk across it.

                      I tried to secretly take a pic of hot guy... failed. I'm not getting a good shot. Stalk much? lol

                      • Pull her aside and tell her quietly she might want to check the hem of her skirt in the back.

                        Have a nice run!

                          • Someone beat me to it... and after she left the office to repair it, one of the males in the office said he wrote a quick note to tell her that either her slip was showing or her hem came loose in her uniform (military skirts have a nylon liner that can tear loose and looks like a slip). I never thought to slip her a note.

                              • The forums at MFP are so bad for me to read... omg. I think they're almost worse than here b/c at least here we all agree that grains are bad, gluten is likely a product of the devil and fat is yummy and good stuff... it's maddening reading forums. Please, people, become more active in your journals so I have something to do on slow days...
