Hey guys, how ya doing? It’s October 18th and Keely turned 26 yesterday. What that really means is that she’s no longer on our insurance. Thank goodness for Obamacare aka The Affordable Care Act.
Say what you will about it but without it there’s no way that kid could have gotten insurance. She still had to get a really good policy, which no 26 year old should need but it’s there when she needs it.
For her, the most important factor (in my opinion) was the maximum out of pocket expenses. We told her to get a more expensive monthly plan that had a good maximum. That’s because Keely ALWAYS has complications and expensive tests. I already know that she needs a CT Scan on her hip and an ultrasound on her femoral artery next year, hence the maximum out of pocket factor.
So there’s that.
In other news I have a bit of a conundrum. You see we had some people at our house for a work thing the other week and one of them loved, loved, loved this one particular painting that I had upstairs. The thing about the painting is this:
It used to be this acrylic painting that Kevin and I had in the old house in our master bedroom. Then I painted over it in oil and I kept it around for a few years in my studio. Then I decided I didn’t really love it enough so whenever I had extra color on my brushes I started using it up on that painting. Now that painting is a random assortment of color with a bit of the original showing through.
This is the painting that the person loves and is dying to have in her house. I don’t actually even consider it a painting so what to do? Do I let somebody have something that I don’t really consider a great work but they love it? Is art truly in the eye of the beholder?
I can’t say that I’m “proud” of the painting and I’m not even really sure that I want my name on it but on the other hand, if that person loves it should I not let them have it?
Also, I think that if I were to try to really paint over the painting that I’d need to restretch the canvas and that’s a pain in the ass. I’d rather not do that and I probably won’t even bother to do that. In that case shouldn’t I just give the quasi painting to this person???
I don’t know. What do you think? It’s not like I’m going to become some famous artist and this “work” will ruin my reputation. Ugh … decisions … decisions.
Ok, that’s it for now. See ya!
