I discovered that Costco is not an approved pharmacy. Oops. Walgreens is and, because I'm lazy, I never moved all of my prescriptions over to Costco. I still have two of my prescriptions there so I added my new insurance to that account and Saturday, when the insurance will be active, I'll refill those two prescriptions (which are two very cheap ones) to test and if that works out fine, which I'm sure it will, then I'll get the expensive stuff moved over. Nice. I'm glad I don't have to break in a new mail order joint.
And all of that stuff reminded me that Silver Sneakers also kicks in on Saturday. Silver Sneakers means - according to their website - that I can swim in the pools of the Olympic Gym in Ballard. They have 2 pools - one salt water which has some lap times and one regular water which has lap swimming 24 hours. I'm kind of thinking this is too good to be true. But, the Silver Sneakers website says I can swim there for free by showing them my Silver Sneakers card. I think I'm going to go find out Saturday morning.
And if all that wasn't good enough news... I just got a call from my CPA who has finished my taxes. He called a week or so ago with preliminary info that it looked like I'd get a $600 refund. His bill is generally $400 so I figure as long as I can cover that, I'm golden. Today he says with all the info in, my refund will be $1,100! I'm doing the happy dance here!! That's way more than half of my new computer. Whew and Yeah! My fabulous finance guy is drawing my cash out of low tax investments. Way back when he and his predecessor were setting up my investments, I'm sure they explained this all to me, probably in excruciating detail. I had no appreciation then. I sure as hell do now!!
And, if that's not good enough, we're in the top of the 6th and the Mariners are leading 3-0.
