@DuchessofCambridge Uggg so jealous. DH is doing a training exercise for the month and has to be in uniform whenever he's outside the house so no movies or date nights for the rest of the month. Older Koreans don't mind the military being here because they remember what it was like during/right after the Korean war but younger Koreans aren't always so accepting and he'll get weird stares. I was Belle for Halloween 3 years in a row in elementary school.
eta: @ebelknap @kissthesky32 thankfully we get to sign a lease early to get a March rent special. The 3 bedroom is only $100 more than the 2 bedroom but the 4 bedroom is a few hundred more than the 3. With this rent special we save $200 a month plus we get our first month rent free. We were looking at houses but they're all old in the area and utilities would be high since it's upstate NY and freezing in winter. We're only going to be there for a year though and if DH gets deployed we're canceling the lease (there's a clause for that) so I can go stay with my ILs.
Oy, im trying not to think about it @dragonfly87. My old job had great insurance, but my deductible is $6000 with this insurance so I'm planning on it being basically that much
As someone who is into to personal finance, I am curious who has done the (not so fun) research into how much their pregnancy/child birth will cost. I have a high deductible HSA plan. My out of pocket max is $2,500 and my insurance estimates the total bill will be between $2,100 and $2,500 out of pocket. I plan to pay for it through my saved up funds in the HSA, so at least it's like getting a 20% discount (from the pre-tax savings).
