Random weekend highlights

We had a lovely non-burb weekend. It was great to stay home, run a few errands (Finally dropped my wedding dress off at the dry cleaners), watched a few movies and did the weekend chores. The Hubs mentioned that he felt bad about being lazy but after the running around we did before the wedding it more than makes up for it.

We have our netflix streamed in so the Hubs is in one room watching Lost and I have been able to watch some interesting movies that I recommend:

Brick Lane

Confessions of a Superhero
Kramer vs. Kramer

Yesterday, I made some pulled pork for today and as leftovers for the week. I am so relieved that I don't have to cook tonight.

We also spent about a hour and half researching and discussing our health care options now that we are married. While my plan has the extra pharmacy benefits, it will cost an arm and part of a leg. His has great co-pay and cost sharing options but, my monthly costs on prescriptions alone will cost a lot more. It is more than frustrating.

As the hubs said the other day "I wonder if all this health care options in Congress, will get more steam as people try to figure out how much more they will pay one way or another while open enrollment is active."

What are your thoughts?

Ugh. Don't get me started on healthcare. I'm the benefits admin for the company and just found out our premiums are going up 13% across the board. It's insane.

For us, it made sense for me to move to Sweets' health care plan. But, I know many couples who stay on their own health plans because it's less expensive to do that. In most of those cases, they only make a change once kids come into the picture.
