Making the right food choices may sound like a tough thing to do.

It will be extremely time consuming and difficult to decipher myriad plans available in each state (all providing different coverage) and to try and figure out which plan is best for you personally. This will be twice as hard for a couple as the prescription drugs used by each person in the couple will be different and therefore they may require different plans.

This has been a great day. I’ve been in a good mood most of the day and i haven’t lost my temper (much) or my mind today. I actually played with both kids and enjoyed it. I set up an obstacle course for Kage and giggled while i climbed over boxes, under his little table, under Mia’s swing and stepped over the footstool with him. He enjoyed it. I was able to smile and revel in my baby girl’s laughter as I tickled and nuzzled her. I haven’t enjoyed her very much since her birth, so today was particularly sweet as I was able to appreciate my daughter while not getting angry at her for being a baby.
