Video of snowy day and placing sale ad....

Well, the unpleasantness first...

We had a bit of a hiccup in our situation today that drove home how real all this job loss and health stuff is. In a nut shell, we got a letter saying today is our last day of health coverage even though we are supposed to be covered until April 31. I read the letter and they actually list a couple of dates in the body of the letter so i suspect it is just a form letter and there was a computer error but it still is scary and we are waiting for a phone call to be returned to find out what the deal is.

If this is the last day of our coverage it will cost us $1100 a month to keep the insurance going. This wouldn't be so much of a scary issue for me except that i had an abnormal mammogram and have to go back thursday for another one, as well as needing to go in tomorrow for another bunch of bloodwork to check liver function, etc... and if this letter is right that means no coverage for this.

Yeah, the letter saying today is our last day of coverage and saying we needed to pay $1100 a month to keep it arrived TODAY. And our pay from the severance package hasn't arrived yet. *sigh*

Anyway, I completely freaked out for about an hour, then I remembered that what will be will be, and no sense letting myself spazz about it. However, my hair immediately started to shed. lol. Hopefully I calmed down before I triggered another mass hair fallout. At least this time I already have some cheap wigs. LOL.

However... it just reinforced the fact that I have to find a home for the mini horses. I sucked it up and started placing ads. Wish me luck, and wish the mini horses luck. My dream home for them would be someone with horse experience and kids who want to take them in 4H or something. I've always said Sparrow needs a little human to show him off. And I would ideally like to keep them together. I don't care about how much i get for them, I just want them to have good homes so i don't have to worry.


Now that the suckage is out of the way... the good stuff. I finally got the videos i took the other day uploaded. Nothing fancy, I was just using my digital camera so it's not the clearest video. But it's still fun. I hope you enjoy them.


  1. I have thought about getting a mini (or more) for driving, but it is only been a pipe dream for now. As much as I'd like to help out, I don't think I'm ready. But, I would love to hear more about your minis. Maybe I can share the info with some of my friends.

    I hope that you are right about errors in the letter and that you find you are covered until April. Ouch, that is a hefty bill, for sure.
    We got a letter that our son's financial aid had been terminated because of his poor grades. He had poor grades until a year ago. For the past two semesters he's had a 3.0 or better. The kicker is... he hasn't been getting financial aid - oops, we weren't supposed to get that letter! Does this mean that maybe he could qualify for some??!!

    Good luck!

  2. Uh oh. The word verification for my previous post was NOHEATR. Since the high tonight and all day tomorrow is supposed to be in the negative numbers...I hope this isn't a portend of bad things to come.

  3. Damn Pony that sucks! I'm sorry this is happening to you guys! If my "what if" becomes "reality" we'll talk ok ?
