I have been on the go this whole week.  I had early morning meetings, late meetings, doctor appointments and had to get lab work done this morning.  I'm pooped!

Our weather has been unusually warm for mid October...85 yesterday and not really seeing any signs of fall yet.  Trees still have their leaves and they haven't even changed colors.  It will probably happen overnight one of these days soon.  The weather man predicted a very wet and cold winter for us.  It's hard to imagine when it is still so warm outside.

I have no plans for the weekend other than doing a little fall cleaning.  Ron and I are going to a presentation sponsored by AARP on Medicare next week.  We are trying to learn as much as we can about supplemental insurance and what we need before we retire.  It's all so confusing.  A former co-worker was here yesterday and she was saying it takes her entire state retirement just to pay for her health insurance.  That doesn't sound very encouraging.

We have Blue Medicare and while it isn't free, it certainly is not as expensive as all that.

Good luck with all the med stuff. I will have heart surgery in the middle of next month, so I am deep into it too.

Mike went through the severe aggravation of signing up for Medicare and supplemental insurance, but all his experience made it a whole lot easier for me five years later. I have not found it to be that expensive--taking up my pension, I mean, but I don't have lots of medication. Yet.

I am always a little suspicious of people who claim their insurance is so high, and blame Obamacare for it All it takes is a little research. My premiums and deductible go down every year. Can't complain.

That is good news to hear! I'm sure we will research until we find the best coverage for our needs!
