i'm going home for Thanksgiving!

home, home, California, home...my son called me today and said, "i just wondered if you could help me sign us up for health insurance while you're here?" note: 3 kids, 6 to 17 years old, wife, husband, no insurance for at least a year or two now. he's self-employed.
hell YES i will. my 30-year-old son, too - i told him i'd pay for his insurance as long as he gets on obamacare. they get to use the state portal right? so it won't be painful at all for us to do this.
i'm so excited.

Thanksgiving and Christmas. My 89-year-old parents need a visit, and I'll get to see my sister and brother, too, who live in the same town as my folks. I'm going then because flights are so much cheaper at that time. I just can't afford the holiday fares.

ever so sweet. NC's been pretty good to us i have to admit that - but it will never be home, and i don't want to die here.
