But instead of doing the research myself, I called a friend of mine to give me a 50 cent overview...and he explained for about two hours how it all worked. Now I think the topic is making more sense. Sure is nice to have a knowledgeable friend who will take the time to explain. And I'm thinking a dinner would be a decent payback for the time he spent filling my brain with knowledge this morning. What would we do without our friends! Since I think I've conquered the baking pork tenderloin mystery, I feel that would be an awesome item to serve. Of course, there are a few sides that would have to be thrown in, but those are easy. Whew, it's a good feeling to have this health insurance supplement situation finally make some sense. It's a feeling similar to a floating sensation after some heavy weights have been removed.
This morning I set out the ingredients for a batch of cookies but when I got to talking with Wil, that idea nearly evaporated. Well, I'll probably make the batch of the cookie dough since everything is already laid out on the kitchen counter - but might stash it in the freezer to actually bake cookies a later day.
6:00pm: Glory be...I not only made the dough, I also baked them too. And ate a few too. You know...quality testing!!
And today has been so pretty and sunny. Chilly - but still a beautiful sunny day. It's interesting how the fact that the sun is shining can make me feel more optimistic and energetic than a dreary overcast day. I started a new book:
And it's good too!!!
