Escape Hatch

We got some bad news today which required me to be on the phone all day long with various useless office people. More accurately, I was on hold all day long while useless office people gathered around the water cooler and gossiped. I waited and waited for someone to come to my rescue and figure out how to fix my problem, but it didn't happen today. Our latest problem: we found out today that we may not be able to get health insurance for any of us from either of our jobs. Time to break out the checkbook - we're going rogue!

UGH. Life is complicated, have you heard? Like, really complicated. Keeps complicating the complications. Just when things were looking a little brighter, this comes along to ruin my day.

So, after agonizing all day over what we will do with ourselves (aside from being very, very careful and washing our hands a lot), I needed a breather. I needed time away from Colin and time away from my life. After Patrick got home, I cashed in a "Your Turn" card and left him with the baby for a few hours so I could get out of the house, clear my head, and indulge in one of my well-documented guilty pleasures: the new Twilight movie.

Holy cow, it was awful. Laughably, terrifically, fantastically bad. I loved it. I'll probably see it again when it goes to the cheap theaters. I can't wait for the sequel. Perfect escapist fare. Tomorrow I'll continue to fight the good fight and try to protect my little family.

3 Readers rock!:

Hope everything works out ok, particularly if this is the "issue".
Love Dragonfly xoxo
PS. I want to see Twilight as well, but it will have to wait a few weeks.

Oh, no! Will school give you benefits when you go back???? Because they are supposed to, aren't they?
