I'm going to check into that.

I don't know for certain but I have a strong suspicion that my MIL is the one who let him out accidently and is scared of saying so. I asked my child and he said "Gran did it." It's ok, she helps me out tremendously in other ways, could have happened to anyone... that cat was on a mission!!

I put a fan on in my room, cranked it up to block out any meowing and didn't hear my alarm going off this morning.

I left for work this morning while my husband kept him in the bathroom, called later and my MIL said that we had a visitor that day and the cat got out before the lady coming to pick him up and take him could get him..... so it's now rescheduled for next Friday :/
Sounds bad Merlot...I cant believe you have to wait even longer now

Tomorrow SS will announce the amount of the COLA increase for January. It is expected to be between 1.3 and 1.4 percent. It is based on the price index of July, August and September. Which ticks me off. If there is a huge increase in June, and then prices only partially adjust in July, that is not taken into account. Because of the drought, food prices will now start to go up. October through to the end of the year are not part of the formula.

Isn't it cute how they give a SS increase with one hand and then take part of it away with the other hand when they raise the Medicare cost?

Not only that, but every time I get a raise, my rent goes up and my food stamps go down, erasing my raise plus some.

My food stamps went down by $1. My rent went up in August by $7. Now I have to notify food stamps of my rent increase so they will raise it by $10. I don't understand how they do their math, but I still gain a little. Just made a note to self to take care of it tomorrow.

Do you pay your own Medicare premium? I don't. Medicaid pays for mine. and what MassHealth (Medicaid) doesn't cover, my Elder Service Plan pays for. Yet my premium for Medicare is figured into my food stamps.

No, I don't pay for any medicare. I refuse to pay $100 (almost) a month when I'm not even under a doctor's care!
