This is week 16 in our 20 Weeks To Preparedness. We're coming down the stretch and in just four more weeks, hopefully you will have purchased and compiled the recommended items for your family's emergency kit. As always, you can go back to the previous 15 Saturday posts and get caught up if you're just joining. It's not too late to be prepared. Remember - when the list mentions cans of foods or a gallon of water, it means per person in your household. Week 16 1 can meat 1 can vegetables 1 box facial tissues 1 box quick energy snacks Dried fruit/nuts
Today was a pretty good day at work. With a full staff today, I was able to get caught up on a week and a half's worth of reports and paperwork that got pushed aside. And the problems today weren't all that bad. Until I got home and found a letter about the Old Man's supplemental health insurance.
To make the very, very long story short, tomorrow I'll need to call them and then do a conference call with the Old Man to re-inform the company that he didn't want their insurance and wanted to keep his Anthem insurance. I'm pretty sure this will not be cut and dried. Yep, I'm already calling it. I'm thinking it will be at least a 15 minute call.
I have to say that even with one of my people out again today on a Monday, the day wasn't all that bad. In fact, it was one of the least problematic Mondays I've had in ages, even with a person out in the department. It was a good day, and Monday evening is turning into a pretty good night, too.
It's been a pretty good run for the past nine months betting on the Ramsey family owned horses, but this week, I didn't have a winner. Yep, each day last week, I didn't have a winner. So the time has come to step aside until the spring. It's been fun betting on their horses and watching them race. And when they won, it was even more fun. But last week I couldn't pick winner for anything, so it's time to move on and wait until the spring. I'll still follow all of the Ramsey family's horses, but I just won't be betting on them. And for the record, I'm still ahead money-wise. A good gambler knows when to hold 'em, and when to fold 'em.
