I think the word "tragic" is used too often. I find that dilutes the meaning.

When my 95 year old mother died, it was sad. I don't think it was tragic. As the Unitarian minister said at the memorial, "We are not relieved that Elisabeth died. We are relieved that she stopped dying."

That was a beautiful sentiment!

Argh! I just spent 45 minutes typing out a recipe on my iPhone for Whiskadoodle and it won't let me post it to the thread.😡

If I only could read....

(S'bunny, some days I think "smartphones" aren't so smart.)

******************

...I could have saved myself a little bit of "argh!". "Page 1" indicated that all I need to produce was proof of MA residency. *facepalm* As if the letter addressed to me at said MA address wasn't enough. (I know, I know, I might be scamming the system by applying for a policy that provides doctors and facilities only in MA while living somewhere else...go figure. Before you worry, emergency treatment are covered anywhere.) Proof of Residency is all I had to produce though. Apparently there is no question as to my citizenship status or incarceration history or, actually, lack thereof.

Gah, CG, we were gathering funds for your bail money! Glad it finally worked out! (Psst, refunds all around...)

Thanks Dawg. I seem to have all the state ducks in a row right now, but I still haven't called the health insurance provider to make sure that 3rd ID number really does belong to a policy with my name. I'm waiting another day or so in case the i's haven't been crossed nor the t's dotted.

I'm really UNventing!

Vented here during my health insurance saga so much I have to put the good here so you all can see that...

I (apparently) HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE!!! I called the provider today and they had me in their system. Then when Himself brought the mail in I had a letter from the Health Connector telling me I've been accepted into my selected plan. Only one thing to follow up on...so far the insurance provider has not received payment for my March premium. I'll call the health connector on Friday to make sure the check they cashed in December has been processed to be applied to my March premium. I'd call tomorrow but the state offices will probably all be closed since we're getting at least one snowflake.
