Healthcare.gov Review




My first vent blog.

My husband began his new job yesterday and the company he went to work for dropped their healthcare plan so we are forced to go on the Marketplace aka Obamacare.  I cannot believe how long and how awful and experience this process was.  The program says save and continue but it never saves.  I must have gotten almost to the end of the seventeen pages of questions when it froze up and I had to start all over. Finally I got so aggravated I called the number they listed to call if you were having problems.  Get a load of this the tech who answered the phone couldn't get it to work either.  I asked where their offices were located they said due to security reasons she could only tell me the Southeast Region of the US.  Go figure.  Well a four thumbs down for the Healthcare.gov insurance Marketplace aka Obamacare.  Thank you for two days of aggravation.

Quilting Tips, Projects Completed, Projects in Progress

Tip #1
I don't know about you but once I have finished with all my blocks and have them in the order I want them in on my quilt wall, I have a heck of a time keeping them in that order when I need to sew.  So instead of the little round labels or post-its that everyone else likes to use I use the photo/scrapbook corner labels.  This way I can put them in the corners of the blocks and number them.  Yes they are more expensive than most labels but they don't leave glue on your fabric like the other labels do sometimes.  This helps me hope it helps you.


Tip #2
When trying to design your next quilt and you need an easy way to find the color coordinating fabrics you want to use just go to the paint department and grab some color samples their free.  That's what I do. Maybe it will help you too.
