It was time to do a little "spring cleaning" on my blog list of blogs I like to read. I noticed about 7 of them have not blogged in months. So, I sadly removed them. I didn't remove Linda with Practical Parsimony....according to updates from Sluggy, she is still working on trying to get back to blogging.
And I added a few new blogs I have been reading lately. I do from time to time, like to check out other's blog list, so that I can also find new blogs to enjoy reading. I think that is how I found these. Either that, or when I get a commenter that isn't someone I recognize as a regular, I check to see if they have a blog link and check out their blog.
One in awhile I toss around the idea of changing my blog name, haha! With the kids grown and gone now, I don't feel like I'm so much a "family" anymore, since it's just me and DH now (and the doggos). But, figuring out how to change it, without causing too much confusion, hasn't been on my list of priorities this past year. Well, that and I haven't come up with a new blog name that strikes my fancy, either.
On an unrelated topic, I follow a Facebook page that is for our town. People post things for sale, upcoming events, etc. I am just amazed at how people will post something for sale and not clean it up or make it look nice in the picture. They are all like that. Some used car guy (from the city) uses it to post pics of auto's for sale. For goodness sake, is it that hard to take a broom and sweep off all the snow on the car before you take a picture of it?! Someone will post a couch for sale.......complete with all their laundry and kids toys all over it. Is it that hard to pull the stuff off and take a good picture of it?! And don't even get me started on the places people will post on homes for sale. OMG! I see the same thing on zillow, when I just look around it to see what is for sale. Is it really that hard to clean up your place?!
4 months ago I took DH off of unafforable healthcare insurance and put him on a short term plan. It was a 4 month (the longest available). So, it's time to get another plan going starting March. I see now I can get the same plan again, but for a 6 month term now. The application/sign up process is quick, so I still have a bit of time this month to still get it done. I'm going to do a search of all available plans and see if any are even longer than 6 months (I don't think so, at least for this state). We are saving almost $6000 a year by dumping Obamacare. I'm still ticked that Trump and the Republicans seem to have just let this promise of reform to Obamacare just slide away. While I approve of what Trump has managed to accomplish with this country, so far, health insurance was one of the main reasons I voted for him.
