United Healthcare

For those who've been following the neverending story that is the United Healthcare saga I am pleased to report what I hope is the end:  they paid.

I started getting shots again Tuesday, and fortunately didn't have to start over again.  Instead we started at the lowest dose on my current vial.  So far so good; here's hoping I'm on maintenance dose by December.

There's not much else to report right now.  I weigh the same as I have (upper-mid 130's), I eat the same, I exercise (although I managed to do something to my hips last Sunday that I'm still not over because I refuse to recognize that my body is ridiculously injury-prone), I work.

The boys are doing well.  The Gum Zombie continues with his parkour madness and is entering 5th grade in a week.  The Elder is surgically attached to his computer and starts at the IB high school as a freshman in that same week's time.  I am absolutely verklempt, and although I am more than aware of my age I just don't feel old enough to have a child in high school.

The animals continue to thrive.  We haven't added any new members to the family since Charlie, thank goodness.  I think I'm at my upper limit with all the fauna in the home.

Choreboy remains the love of my life :)

I think at this point it would be appropriate to say I'm taking a bit of a hiatus from this blog.  I'm not going private, and I'm not saying I'll never be back because lord knows I have trouble shutting up.  But I've been at this thing for seven years.  I'm tired, and I think it's time to give this a rest at least for a bit.

If you want to contact me, please feel free to leave a comment or email me -- my address is in the sidebar beneath the "Cast of Characters"  And oh what characters they are!  I should be updating the herpetological blog here and there if you absolutely can't live without my writing.  I'm not holding my breath on that ;) In the meantime:

That's really all that matters.  Take care, folks.
