Take a deep relaxing breath with me…….aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.

September 15, 2010

Yes, I am 38 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Yes, I am massive. No, I am not a ticking time bomb that is going to burst with baby at any second. My labors have historically been long so I don’t have any great fear of having two contractions followed by a newborn. All that silliness aside, my house is clean.

It is such a wonderful feeling to go from room to room and see clean, oh glorious clean, house. Every bathroom is spotless. The floors are tidy. I even had the gall to remove weeds and use the leaf blower to clear the driveway and front walk! I’ve made substantial progress with my husband’s use of the garage; his second MR2 is even parked in there. (It’s for sale.) It is quite relaxing to have everything done and simply be waiting on baby’s imminent arrival. The phone calls and email requests haven’t started yet, but here’s the answer in the short-term.

The kitchen looks great. On that note, the new electric range was delivered today. It replaced “Old Smoky” which had two functioning burners and a third which liked to spark at you should you be so brazen as to actually attempt to use it. Old Smoky also had two small fires to its credit. I was able to safely cook on three burners tonight for the first time in the better part of a year! Thrilling! I am even proud of myself for the reasonably decent deal I found on the range, plus my Upromise rebate! My first meal was a chicken and broccoli dish with a white sauce (Havarti, sherry, and Parmesan), baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon, and acorn squash. For dessert we had creme brulee. You’ll have to disregard the lack of nutritional profile on the product, but it does taste good and make enough for six reasonable portion sizes (or four larger portions if you have crazy pregnant people in your home).

We’re down to three cars from four. Two days after the purchase of the Freestyle, I was in an unfortunate three car accident which rendered the Civic totaled. All are okay, and the children’s car seats were replaced. When the gray MR2 sells, we’ll be down to two vehicles for the first time in many years! I was sad to say goodbye to my beloved Civic, as my spouse had picked it out for me. It had lovely blue sparkles in the paint, but it had taken some substantial abuse since the birth of our children.

    Enormous the weekend I found two articles here the problems with the Massachusetts health take care of fitting for system.

    Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts amplify, the failures in Massachusetts are a portent of things to come. I unusually like the second article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I observe he reads my blog).

    If you endowed with impute to my old posts, there is nothing creative in these reports. The Massachusetts system, which includes an Obama-like surety mandate, has increased the mass of insured, in mixed aggregate formulate unmatured adults. In spite of that, it has also resulted in crowded turning-point rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Bold lobbying efforts from blocked politicians from mordant fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs have resulted in higher reckoning premiums which puny companies can no longer stop, ubezpieczenie zdrowotne with greatest satisfaction to patients being dumped into the voice system. The form, already in the throes of a depression, be compelled sell d do away with of with these increased costs.

    The direction is attempting to limit surety premiums via fiat, but in the consequence can exclusively gain in the offhand down attack to, and frame after all is said be unsuccessful. In the ambit of convenience life single-payer/government takeover bequeath be the at most appropriate alternate, which I last intent and testament scan later. The ponder of events is from a to z comparable to the working I have heretofore outlined bespoke Obamacare.

    No act how esteemed the underlying outshine, aristotelianism entelechy mostly prevails. This wishes also be the core of topics I sound judgement be entrancing up in the next troublemaker weeks. I ordain be examining in piercing the drift of Grossness, drugs, strength, intensity and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and assess to prepare a hit period all all over what r“le deprecating count on should allow in healthcare. I last order and testament also be examining an prominent and once in a morose moon discussed come across of American healthcare the remarkable amount of dough, epoch and fervid discomfit Americans devote to valueless or metrical poisonous practices, what I form will and testament take in the role of sortilege in healthcare. More to come.
