I got up late today -- a little before noon -- and after doing my usual morning internet routine I settled in to deal with the government's health insurance website. Most of the form I had to fill out was populated with last year's information, so it went a lot quicker than last time, but the result was somewhat different. Instead of qualifying for a subsidy for health insurance, queenmomcat and I are apparently eligible for Medicaid. We have to wait for the state to get back to us on whether or not we really are eligible, and then we have to see what exactly of our various problems Medicaid covers. This just adds another layer of uncertainty to our health care equation, which we really did not need right now.
Given that there was nothing else I could do on that front, I turned towards domestic tasks. I did some dishes and started some laundry, then went outside and emptied some more planters for the winter. Back inside, I paid some bills and did some more dishes, and then started dinner. We had duck for dinner today, using a slow-roasting recipe that calls for it to cook for three hours at low temperatures, so I started it mid-afternoon. And after that, I took a nap.
In the evening, I put some root vegetables in to roast with the duck for the last hour or so of its cooking time. Unfortunately, I didn't leave enough time for the vegetables to cook thoroughly, and they were kind of crunchy. Still, the duck was excellent. After dinner, I portioned out for freezing some stock queenmomcat had made yesterday, and that was about it for the day. Tomorrow, it's back to work at the book store. Now, it's back to bed.
