It's been about 3 weeks. I've been busy and distracted. Didn't feel like blogging when anything I would write about the Waukesha area would pale in comparison to news coming from the state, nation and world. There's been a lot happening and I've been busy just trying to keep up. I would've liked to travel to Madison to get caught up for a few minutes in all the history in the making. I wasn't thrilled with the way things went down, but who am I? I didn't even vote!
We finally got some health insurance here after being uninsured since October. It took many months of paperwork, unanswered calls and unreturned messages, but we're happy we finally got something. We'll need it for just a few short months. We'll leave BadgerCare either when our youngest turns 19, when I find a different job offering family coverage, or when Governor Walker gets his hands on it.
I had a good interview Thursday. I enjoy the work where I am at ODW but after six months they still haven't hired me on for whatever reason. The company is Genco, it's in Waukesha, and they offer insurance. The day I interviewed at Genco my son was admitted to Waukesha Memorial. The son without insurance. He's still there. We finally know what the problem is and he's getting it taken care of. We're glad he's in a safe place but not too thrilled with the diagnosis or the events leading up to it. Bottom line, he waited longer than he should have because of lack of insurance.
I didn't want to write about this. Too personal. But it's been three weeks...
