holiday shopping

Thursday, November 1st, 2007

I have not bought one Christmas present. Not one. I’m not really concerned, I usually get really intent on Christmas shopping right after Thanksgiving and then finish up well before Christmas. I liked Elizabeth’s idea about giving each child three gifts representative of the gifts given at Christ’s birth. I am hoping to implement that idea into my gift giving this year.

Emelia wants a new ipod to replace the one that was left in the stands of the last football game she went to with a friend she spent the night with. We drove back to the field and she looked and looked, but someone must have found it before her. I think Amanda would like perfume to be one of her gifts. Bailey has already put his request in for guitar hero for his wii. I need to look into that!

I’ve been writing little ads for different paid posting sites the last few days. It’s really fun and not hard at all. Figuring out all the little rules has been the biggest obstacle. Fortunately I have friends like Tori to help me out. I signed up for bloggerwave recently. I think it is a little exciting to think about generating funds doing the thing I enjoy most – blogging!

I mentioned that I am trying out the paid posting with several different sites. One of which is Smorty. Smorty is a service that connects advertisers with bloggers. You are able to pick from a list of advertisers and post about that particular website or product. The amount per post varies depending on the advertiser. It is a fun way to blog for money.

I hope that blogging for money doesn’t deter my bloggy friends. I am simply trying to make the most of my time and because my options are limited this is one way I can contribute to our monthly income. I am hoping that I get the hang of this quickly. I’ve been fortunate to have some bloggy friends who are also blogging for money and have been able to give me some tips. I’m really thankful for Tori, who has helped so much and directed me to other sites to check out like Smorty.

health care

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

When Izzy’s accident happened, because her hospitalization was so expensive… the hospital administration met with us and discussed our health insurance policy. They were amazed at what wonderful health insurance we had. There was no cap which was very unusual. We were relieved to know that our insurance was in place and would cover our needs during this devastating time.

I mentioned earlier that growing up we had no medical insurance. A trip to the doctor or dentist cost so much money. My father worked as a self employed contractor, so there were certain months that were tighter than others. Usually the winter, and that was also when we usually got sick. I’m not sure that medical insurance was a readily available to self employed and small business owners as it is today.

After my brothers and I were all older, my mom went to work for the State. Now they have insurance to cover their needs as they grow older. I’m sure this is a comfort to both of them. Otherwise I would suggest they get a medical insurance quote.

Choosing life insurance is a very important task, especially for parents. I think it is very reassuring to know that we have a plan in place should something happen to either Matt or myself. Matt is fortunate to have a great insurance plan through his employer. One of the major benefits for working for ATT is the wonderful insurance for our whole family.

Several years ago Matt’s employer at the time moved to another country, leaving us without any insurance at all. We were forced to look at insurance quotes. We finally found an independent insurance company and paid out of pocket for insurance until the new employer’s insurance began. After Matt completed the first six months of his new job, their insurance policy went into force and we were able to cancel the temporary policy that we had.

Although growing up my father was always a self employed contractor and carpenter and we never had insurance, ever. I still find it very comforting to know that we have policies in place. I think my main security is health insurance, but the life insurance is a comfort as well. I remember if we were sick it was so expensive to go to the doctor and dental work was also very expensive.

I learned also looking into insurance that there are whole life policies, these are more expensive than term policies, but the rates do not go up for your lifetime. You can actually cash in your policy if you need emergency funds before you life is over.
