PUTTING THE BACK COUNTRY BEHIND US

The day is finally upon us. My Doctor tells me to stay away from stress but I have found that to be impossible lately. Worrying about hubby's health and making sure everything get's packed are quite taxing. And then cobra didn't kick in in time to take care of the excavation of the offending rock so I had to do some juggling to get that paid and now we have to fight the hospital to get them to submit the paperwork to the Insurance provider. They've already been paid so we had to get in their faces in order to get them to do something about it because they were ignoring our calls. I also could not believe that 6 hours in the hospital and a little laser beam could run up a bill of over 8 grand. Heck, we could have taken a European vacation flying first class and staying first class for that kind of dough.

Saturday we hit the road and Thursday we plan to arrive in Ohio. That is barring any quirks of nature that could conceivably create a roadblock. This is my very favourite time of year in Southern California. Winter has finally arrived. Winter here is like summer anywhere else north of the 33rd parallel. Green and fresh and vibrant and very wet! It is a good time to leave. Oh, and the Desert at this time of year. Sheer beauty. It just springs alive! Of course, you have to get down on your belly to see some of the flowers. But it is worth the trip.

Don't forget to check out the full moon on Wednesday or Thursday. Show your children. The Easter Bunny is there with basket in hand waiting to come down to earth and deliver those Easter Eggs. It's there every year at this time, so don't forget to look for those big ears. Enjoy the bounty too!

Stay away from stress. HAH! My Dr says the same way but it's about as useful as telling a skeeter to stay away from the bug-zapper.

As for that 8 large you dropped, you are correct. Europe would have worked and then you could have gotten on a list and had the care done for free ... in 18 months.

It's good to be well in europe and live well. It's better to be sick in America and live.

Well done on a nice blog mouse. I was searching for information on portable hot tubs and came across your post this post - not quite what I was looking for related to portable hot tubs but very interesting all the same!

If you have a moment, why not hop over and take a look at my report on hot tubs.

Spam happens when I post in the evening. As for long health care waits in Europe, same in Canada, although Canada is not free, just cheap. That's because the bloodline is predominantly Scottish, with some French mixed in for good nature:)
