Driving By

This is going to be the fastest long week of my life. I have to meet with about 300+ employees to let them know we’re looking at a substantial increase in our health insurance premiums this year. And that’s the best option because it keeps our deductible as low as it is ($600.00) ~ the other options are going to a $750 deductible, $1000 deductible, or a high deductible plan with a health savings account. It just sucks all the way around. And did I mention I work in the health services field? Yeah, not a lot of money there to begin with. It’s going to be a bad week.


I started reading Earthly Pleasures by Karen Neches ~ I think I heard about it from Nath’s. I’m only 50 pages into it so far, but it’s cute. I’m also reading Family Blessings by Fern Michaels ~ it’s also good. I’m just kind of reading what floats my boat at the moment.


Exercising and eating are going great. I’m now down to size 10/12 which is a real milestone. I haven’t been that size in about 10 years. That being said, my butt and thighs really hurt today 🙂


The countdowns have officially begun. Next Friday is Good Friday, meaning I get a 3 day weekend; 6 weeks and 2 days (and counting!!) from today I’m going to be vacation bound.

  1. I’m so impressed with you that even though been doing my part to exercise by swimming 2-3 times a week I joined the weight loss challenge at work. See? You were an inspiration, Cindy too.


  2. You are so good at keeping up with this. I can’t even consider to a healthy style of living much less live it. Keep it up girl.Miss seeing you around. In case I don’t see ya online, I hope you have a fab vay-cay.


  3. Congratulations Dev! A 10/12 is wonderful and you deserve thunderous applause!Health Insurance premiums are outrageous! I don’t pity you having to tell everyone that their rates are going to have to increase. Insurance is a scam I wish I had thought of first 😉


  4. Izzy ~ Thanks!Nath ~ I’m enjoying it a lot! And, I’ve been good and haven’t read the ending yet. I almost always start a book by reading the ending first.Stacy ~ I’m trying to be better about visiting my friend’s blogs. Hopefully you’ll see me around plenty before I go on vacation.Jen ~ Thanks!Jen ~ It’s outrageous! And then, add on that it’s Montana where the wages are low anyway and the cost of living is getting higher and higher. Although, the week wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, thankfully.


  5. Congratulations on making it to 10/12! And I know somewhere there is someone saying ‘no pain, no gain!’.And yeah you inspired me – the treadmill is finally in a prominent place. I just need to get on it already. Apparently I’m just enjoying the view of it 😉And woohoo for holidays!CindyS


  6. Cindy ~ There is definitely a saying like that 🙂 Glad to hear the treadmill has found it’s place in your home. Only 3 more days and I’ll have 3 day weekend. It couldn’t have happened at a better time, as far as I’m concerned.
