i never thought the day would come where i would be so escatic to be poor, but today and yesterday and until after baby number two comes, i am! a few months back we applied for the oregon health plan and a month ago found out we were ineligible because we exceeded the income limit, but something wonderful happened when i lost my job in januray: our income slide right under the scale to be eligible. so starting may 1st ALL the prenatal care, ultrasounds, doctor visits, labor, delivery, hospital fees, newborn fees, the whole darn kit and kaboodle will be covered. i mean, even if i was still working, and had health insurance, it still wouldn't be as sweet as a deal to get the whole thing for FREE. we are still paying conrad off, and that was with pretty good health insurance, so this is as kick ass as kick ass could get. God is genius, and oregon is great for taking care of us pohr poeples.
i also found The House last night on craigslist. it really is everything and more and at the right price too. the lady told me there is another couple ahead of us but she hasn't checked their references so i'm praying either they suck or she finds great favor with us.
conrad although isn't falling into the good news segment; the past few days have been challenging ones, to say the least. i'm not sure if it's because he still is feeling crappy or because of two teeth cutting in, or because, as i fear, my good fortune with him has expired and he is now a normal child. just this afternoon we spent a good thirty minutes doing time outs because he kept hitting me. the intersting thing is that he wasn't doing it out of frustration or anger, but with a smile on his face. which makes me think he is merely juxaposting my reactions with different physical acts. none the less, it is unnerving and i would definitely prefer we back track to the hugs and kisses comparison and analysis. or maybe back rubs and foot massages.
and now to clean.
