Travel Tuesday: W.W. of H.P. Part 1

Traveling is one of my favorite hobbies and I love talking about it and planning trips, but I totally lose track of time in the summer so I really failed with the whole Travel Tuesday thing. But now I'm working again so I know that today is Tuesday. It is, right?  So let's talk about my next trip!
Over the weekend, we booked our hotel and bought our tickets to go visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. I'm so super pumped! Our second wedding anniversary is next Tuesday, so we decided that this weekend would be the perfect time to go to Harry Potter world. We're leaving on Thursday evening after work and we'll spend Friday and Saturday at Universal Studios. Hopefully we'll get to do everything at the W.W. of H.P. on Friday, but if it's ridiculously crowded and we miss things we can check it out again on Saturday. We decided to drive home Saturday night rather than stay in Orlando because A) I will miss my dogs (we just spent 8 days without them last week) and B) we'll save the money and go out for a nice dinner on our actual anniversary next week.

In other news, I was doing some more research on my health insurance options and I think I found something that might work for me! I found a plan (with the same provider I currently use) for only $255 a month, which is less than half the price of adding me to Seth's plan. It has a $250 deductible and maternity coverage with a $1500 deductible. It's definitely not as good as the insurance I have now. I'll have to make some changes. For example, my doctors want me to use brand name prescription prenatals but they will be really expensive with this plan so I might change back to generic or over-the-counter. It will also cost me a bit more money to see a general physician or specialist, but I only plan to have this coverage for a few months so I think that's okay. I'm not too concerned with the quality of the maternity coverage because, like I said, this is temporary and there's no way I'm giving birth in the next two or three months. Also, and this is the best part, it looks like surgery would be covered with this new plan! I think I could have surgery for under $1000, which seems pretty reasonable to me.

If this is true, it will take a lot of pressure off of me. My goal for this month is to give myself a break. Seth always says that I am too hard on myself and I know he's right. My goal for this month/cycle is to just take it easy. I'm going to enjoy my vacation this weekend. I'm going to enjoy my anniversary next week. I've done all of the research I can do, so I'm not going to worry about what we'll do next cycle. In two weeks, I'll have my appointment with Dr. M and we can get it all figured out then.
