I did accomplish one thing this week I'm happy with! I actually gave up on listening to OMIP (the 'oregon medical insurance pool' that the state put together to get those of us who the insurance companies used to sneer at for pre-existing conditions) and their claim that they would 'take care of us' when they FINALLY (after 6 weeks, and a 12 page form filled out) sent a letter saying "oh, by the way, we can't help YOU, but here's a bill if you want to continue our craptastic zuperexpensive insurance until you get something else figured out." An hour or so checking out options online, then 2 minutes filling out a form requesting a call which came half an hour later. Maybe 20 minutes on the phone quizzing the guy about how they handle XY and Z, answer a few (and I MEAN a few, as in 3 or 4) and boom, I now have better insurance at close to HALF THE PRICE of what OMIP was charging. The state can go suck eggs. I didn't even bother with the feds the stories there have been so bad!
So, now. I've got a bunch of little pots built, but I've got to get some bigger stuff done! And more little stuff. And bowls, those are coming out very nice so I should work on some of those. BACK TO WORK!
