    In the first picture you can see this big 'bricks' in the background. They are made of cardboard, Draco bought them for Bit for Christmas last year and she builds with them all the time.

    One day she decided to build Morgaine a 'dog fort' out of the bricks. She spent about a half hour or so building it, made her a nice bed from a blanket inside... put toys and bones in it. Then she lead Morgaine into the 'fort'. And in about 30 seconds she'd knocked over every single brick. All the while Bit's going.. "No, you're supposed to play in it.. ARGH! Morgaine! Don't knock that... " And I was sitting here laughing like a loon.

      Thanks for that, I need a few laughs.

      I went over my renewal application for SNAP, checked the website, and came to the not-entirely-surprising conclusion that the check I got from my sister puts me over the income limit. When my husband was still alive and his unemployment had run out, it didn't, but now, with just me by myself, it does. Therefore, no more SNAP and no OHP either. Which now makes me an ACA "failure." Too broke to buy any of the insurance, even the cheapest bronze plan and too "rich" to qualify for our state's version of Medicaid. So, I'm now back to doing what my husband was, hoping I survive until Medicare kicks in. I have four years to wait. I think I'll make it; I'm blessed with better genes than my husband apparently was, but it's not exactly a comfortable place to be!

      Feeling a little down about that today.

      What I want to know is, who's going to pay for these crimes against humanity that those b@st@rds are perpetrating against the rest of us?

        but I don't qualify for insurance either, I'm in the "your state didn't expand" gap as well. And I'm only 43.

        I'll keep you in my prayers, maybe our stupid governors will cave.
