Up and at ’em

The trick that works to get me out of my head is to do something.  I know this.  I always feel better after I get up and move.  Yet I sit here obsessively thinking aka wallowing. Why?

Cuz I’m a Brat.

Not really.

I say I’m a brat in a self-deprecating way which does more harm than good.

Still I wonder why else would I ignore something I know works?  Wallowing is NOT enjoyable by any stretch of the imagination.  Even in small spurts.

So on that note, Up and at ’em (NOT up and Adam).  The cry “Up and at ’em boys” likely comes from WWI.  Purpose: to give the troops encouragement.  And that’s exactly what we (my thoughts and I) need!

See ya on the flip side.

As always, more to come.

For 10/1/18 ~ Can’t Find My Way Home

Helen gives us find/found.  She says if we guess the theme for next week based on the last three weeks, we get a virtual cookie.  Incentive! I love trying to get prizes but I stink at guessing games.  Today I selected Can’t Find My Way Home at the risk of being multiples.  I do not look at anyone else’s until after I post my own.  I did not want to chance others feelings same and then we’d miss such a classic song.  Without further ado:

“Can’t Find My Way Home”
Come down off your throne and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I’ve been waiting so long
Somebody holds the key

But I’m near the end and I just ain’t got the time
And I’m wasted and I can’t find my way home

Come down on your own and leave your body alone
Somebody must change
You are the reason I’ve been waiting all these years
Somebody holds the key

But I can’t find my way home
But I can’t find my way home
But I can’t find my way home
But I can’t find my way home
Still I can’t find my way home
And I ain’t done nothing wrong
But I can’t find my way home

Funny Math – Yet Again

I am researching our best option for health insurance through my employer and seriously considering switching from the PCA to the HRA which has a FSA or an HSA.  Say that 3 x’s fast.

FSA = Flexible Spending Account.  I went through the ALEX tool and learned bunches.  I think I am confusing plans FSA may really be HSA or vice versa.  Then they add LFSA for dental and vision only.  Maybe I learned nothing? lol.

Here is what my notes say:

  • Must use for qualified healthcare
  • Can contribute up to but not exceeding 7k per year (tax-free)
  • Can contribute up to but not exceeding 8k per year (tax-free) if you are 55.
    • For this I am considered 55 since anyone who turns 55 in 2019 gets the higher limit.
    • Who hoo – yay us!
  • You will pay taxes and 20% penalty for early withdraw (I need to go back and re-listen because of the boat example which deserves its’ own post … wait for it ala Barney Stinson)
  • You may withdraw if you are 65, disabled, or dead.

C’mon folks when is the last time a dead person pulled money out of anything?

ba-dum-tis 

Hearing that made me giggle as I listened to ALEX and I promptly thought of the line:

I see dead people.  Hayley Joel Osment in The  Sixth Sense

I am a weirdo.  But in a good way right?  Say right.  Or otherwise humor me.  Puhleese. Hehe 🙂

As always, more to come.
