Today is real estate tax day. The county sends out the tax bills and makes the info available online. Last year my bill was $4K for the year. My values changed a little (we get that info at the end of the year) but I expected the total amount to increase. I was wrong! My bill is $3.800! Excellent. That's a lovely surprise.
Yesterday I sent my doctor a note asking for a refill of my Spiriva prescription. I changed my insurance to Humana at the beginning of the year. I had set up my online account in January but hadn't really looked into the pharmacy side of it until yesterday. Welcome to this decade! Finally, an insurance company who's act is together!
Last year's insurance company had zero online anything. The insurance company before that had some reports but zero drug info. Humana has it all in spades. I easily transferred my 3 other prescriptions. I discovered I have a $50 a quarter allowance for over the counter stuff (a limited selection but still a lot of good stuff). I can't see prices yet but it looks like the cost to me will be lower.
Mainly, however, their website shows me that they have my requests and things are in process. One has shipped and they give me the tracking number. Nice, very very nice.
I've decided to move my cell service from T-Mobile to Google Fi. I don't expect to save money but I do hope to get more flexibility. My main worry was switching back if it does not work like I hope. My Google Voice number is my old land line number that I've had for 25 years. Losing it would not be catastrophic but would be a major Pain in the Ass. Apparently, now, if you leave Fi, one option is to return to regular old Google Voice. That, and I keep hearing rumors that my sweet little $30 a month T-Mobile plan is going away soon, has me moving on for now.
Now I need to hang up my wet suit and put the clean dishes away in the kitchen - house cleaner prep.
Oh here's last night's bear...
