It's unbelievable how differently than expected this month has been. Our governor had said the stay in place/travel ban would be re-evaluated on April 11th. I appreciate the thought. Realistically, we are not going to be having a big family Easter dinner this year. It's o.k. We're all well. The rest of you probably accepted this fact before I did.
I spent an hour arguing with Dad's previous supplemental insurance - again. I deleted 3 paragraphs where I vented. LOL I told them I was going to contact my congressmen and get a lawyer who deals with Senior/Medicare issues as I know this is simply not right. I've been asking for a letter stating when and why they disenrolled him so he can get new insurance. He NEEDS medical care and we're waiting for a letter. His application at the new insurance has timed out. I have to begin it all again and still they haven't sent the letter. Five times I've been told it was going out "today." I have names, dates, reference numbers. They have passed me on to the escalation team - but I can't SPEAK directly with anyone from that team or the resolution team. I have to call member services and be read the same script over and over...always told it will be in the mail....and today I was told it was never mailed. They tell me it will take 7 days for them to get around to faxing it to me. I am determining if I will wait 7 days....and drop it if it comes...or contact "someone" to complain about how ridiculous this is.
What do you all think about Zoom? I am finding it disconcerting not to be able to look into eyes when teaching...or to have people stay in PLACE. Someone begins to speak, I look where there square WAS, and someone else is THERE. ::snort:: It does add a bit of excitement to the study. LOL
|So fun to talk with everyone! 13 of us....well 14 Bonnie WAS there.|
Anyway - the days blur. Krista worked, walked and made masks. Stacia did school, crafted, worked out, and cooked dinner. Michael worked in the wood shop. Alex worked on school. Dad read.
- 22 new cases in Alaska yesterday. We are at 213 now. Still low compared to many places - but we'd hoped numbers would stop by now. Or I had.
