About those changes...

January 12th, 2015 at 05:54 pm

Hello 2015! I'm joining those here who are so very happy 2014 is over.

In the past three weeks, we've had quite a few changes.

There were some medical issues found in my littlest. Thankfully, the issues are not life threatening, and won't be since we caught it so early. In fact, my littlest will probably only have to deal with this for a few years, at most. It was a test heavy few weeks though to make sure all bases were covered, including two where he was put under anesthesia. Considering he's only a few months old, it was kind of scary from a mom's standpoint. Unfortunately, there will be several of those tests that will have to be repeated to make sure treatment is working.

I've never been more thankful for my health insurance and my stubbornness to have a fully funded HSA a year in advanced. Due to giving birth on the fall, we wiped out 2014 deductible, and now since my deductible restarted in December, we've probably hit it within two days of my pediatrician thinking something was off.

The other big change was that I quit my job. While I have lots to say about it, I think for internet purposes, this quote serves best: "There comes a time where you have to stop crossing oceans for people who wouldn't jump a puddle for you." The next two weeks are going to be really tough as I wrap it up.

Thankfully, I have a very flexible job doing something I like lined up already, and my husband just gained stability in his job, so this won't be too rough of a transition.

I'm counting my blessing every day, that's for sure.
