This morning I was feeling down. The prospect of having to choose the kind of pension R would take will mean we have to read the future in our crystal ball. Will the Republicans win the election this fall? If so, best to stick with the insurance we have and take the relatively low monthly pension. If not, go for broke with the payout, which we would rather do because it gives us a chance to invest the money. But I have "pre-existing conditions"--inherited hearing problems and very mild thyroid issues. Otherwise, I am healthy. In my doc's words, I am much more healthy than most of her much younger patients because I eat well, exercise, and take very good care of myself. My parents lived to be almost 94. What kind of risk am I, seriously?
But I can't get a decently priced insurance policy, so unless Obama's health care policies go into effect, we must stick with what we have. But how to know that?
Aside from that, I am hanging in limbo on some employment issues, waiting to hear whether I will get interviews for jobs I've applied for, etc. And I'm not having much luck getting readings so I can sell my book to the local community.
But I went to yoga this morning and hoped all the way there would be something in my email box about one of these issues. There was. At least I am less in employment limbo about one of those positions! However, I still don't have a place to read.
