We arrived back in Mesa the end of October and are all settled in for the winter. As usual, I won't be posting as often while we are hibernating, but I do have a couple of things to mention.
First, I flew to Pennsylvania to visit with my father. We had a nice time, as always. It's just so great to see him doing so well. A few days before I arrived, he said the leaves were just spectacular. Then came the rain, followed by high winds that quickly stripped the trees. He did take me to this scenic covered bridge where there was one tree still hanging on.
And I have some news. I am one of the 20 million people who will lose my current health insurance because it doesn't meet the criteria for Obamacare. Yep, I am one of the masses. But the reason is what I find truly remarkable - my policy doesn't cover me for pregnancy. Humm, at 61 I really wasn't planning anything like that. Also amazing - my carrier seems to be psychic since they said I could keep my policy until the end of 2014 BEFORE Obama asked the insurance companies to do that. Of course I'll be paying an extra $50 a month.
