Late this afternoon, the mailman dropped a packet in my mailbox. In the packet was a letter that said:
"The following person(s) are eligible to enroll in the Children's Health Insurance Program:
We've been waiting on this news for a while. The CDF found a loophole and we exploited it and we've been in limbo waiting to find out if it would work. It was the last hope, honestly. If you are in the same situation we have been in and you'd like to know more about said loophole, feel free to email me, but I don't want to go into detail on the blog. Suffice it to say, the system wouldn't work for us, so we worked the system.
I have to pay the enrollment fee and send in one piece of paper and these kids of mine should be all set. I could not be happier...I mean, unless the system wasn't so broken that we had to find a deceptive back door, that might have made me happier. But I'm still ecstatic.
In other news, KayTar went to camp today. It was her first day away from me in years and she did excellently. And then? She told me about her day. She told me that she:
Put on costumes, an elephant, tiger, and dinosaur
Did "arting" meaning she painted black stripes on orange paper, tiger stripes, and her teacher asked if she was done and she WAS done
Played outside, a game involving throwing, a cone, and a ring
Singing, the monkey song and a song from the Jungle Book
Watched part of Toy Story
Played with all of those kids
She was so excited and she is ready to go back tomorrow.
It has been a most excellent day.
PS: I owe you all a thorough NYC report, but I am running on borrowed time lately. Tomorrow I hope I have the time to get it knocked out. It was a great trip.
