When you drop the ball... Pick it up.

Profound isn't it? Okay, maybe not so profound...

I'm back in school starting in the Fall. I took a hiatus for the past 6 months. Wish I hadn't, but it is what it is. I'll be taking Astronomy and Compensation and Benefits Management. Quite the combination isn't it?

Bart accepted a perm position in Las Colinas. The money is less since he will no longer get the premium rates of being a contractor however, at least he won't have to worry about getting a new assignment every 3-6 months and we will have better and more affordable benefits. Don't get me started on the shortcomings of our healthcare system...

Anyways, that's all the news for now.

The medical system in this country is a disgrace. We have the resources and the ability to have a much kinder society. Instead, we've squandered it on bombs for a country that didn't attack us and didn't have terrorists in it until we flubbed it up.

Taking jobs for benefits is the norm now, not the exception! Will you have to move?

it is disgraceful. we have, at times, paid nearly as much as our mortgage for health insurance for our family while Bart was working on contract.

no, fortunately we will be staying put and won't have to move. the commute will be longer but at least hubby drives a fuel-efficient Civic.
