Donut hole escape for 2016

Medicare insurance is designed so that you get drug coverage A until you have spent xxx and then you get no coverage until you have spent xxx+yyy. So after you've spent xxx and before you have spent xxx+yyy, you have no drug insurance - it's a donut hole of coverage. With coverage, my drugs cost me $50ish a month. With no drug coverage, my drugs cost me $850ish a month. My math tells me that the donut hole is not a good place for me to be.

And this year, I've managed to skip it. I now have, in house, enough of everything except one cheap one to last me until next January. Whew!! A little inhaler hoarding last year when I changed insurance companies, paid off. Next year, I'll probably get screwed but this year, I b kewel.

And if that weren't enough excellent news, I just got a $100 gift certificate to a fancy restaurant across the street. They are building some fancy assed condos and making a big, loud, noisy mess in the process. A few (maybe an 8th) of the units in this building are being annoyed by this. So to make it up to them, they gave us all - every unit - a $100 gift card to the two fancy assed restaurant in that building. Nice. Very nice. I'm not a fan of the big, formal restaurant but the bar is lovely and they serve nice bar sized portions of fancy stuff. So, yep, I will be going over there at least a couple of times for a nice cocktail and light dinner.

Not on a Mariner home game night, though. So not tonight. They are going out of town next week so maybe then.

The ball chair and I are getting along way better. I'm about a day away from throwing out the box which means no chance of returning it.
