Gail's planner arrived!

Woot! I got the planner in the mail yesterday. Thanks to all my lovely friends and family that I harassed to vote for me. I read through it and can't wait to start using it (today was not the day).

This insurance stuff is driving me a little batty. I need an insurance adviser since I can't get quotes directly from the companies. I've gotten a number for a place in the area so I'll try that. What a long process just to get some quotes.

I can get a group rate from Sun Life for life insurance, but in talking with my best friend I'm not sure. She hates them because when her mother died from skin cancer they called her 2 weeks later to ask if her mother was a smoker, despite her policy saying that she wasn't.

Tomorrow is variable money day - I get it out of the bank machine and place in the jars. I like taking the extra money and putting it in the extra jar. It's nice to see that we can actually have extra money at the end of the week. On the 25th I'm having a little party for my husband's birthday and on the 29th my daughter turns 4. This jar is covering both parties and presents. It's not much, but it'll work.

I need to work on being more easy going when it comes to my menu. My mom babysits for us twice a week for 2 hours for free. She usually ignores the menu and does her own thing. I came home from work to see that she had not cooked the tenderloin I'd taken out of the freezer and instead made pork chops and rice. Not a big deal, but I seem to take a few minutes to adjust to a change in my plans. I don't really understand why she can't just follow the menu? The food is prepped to go. Oh well.

I checked my work coverage and here are the numbers:

Life - $50,000
AD&D - $100,000
LTD - $38,219.80

DH has his orders to find out if there is anything from his work. He has a $30,000 life insurance policy that his parents have paid in full.

I printed off the form from Equifax today to get my credit report.
