As I dragged my bags into our mudroom my husband, a few steps ahead of me, was opening the mail. “Hey, why are you getting fifty dollars from your teacher union?" he inquired.
“I have no idea.”
“Well check it out,” replied my husband.
I looked over the check and slowly it registered. Several months ago I signed up for a program offered through my health insurance company (which is purchased through the teacher union). I had to answer questions about my lifestyle including my eating and exercising habits, take a couple quizzes, and keep a log of my daily exercise online. I was enthusiastic at first but eventually I stopped logging into the program.
Evidently, I completed enough steps to qualify for a bit of money back for my healthy lifestyle. I have to say, it felt good to get such a surprise on a stormy last day of February. My husband put the check on the refrigerator and said, “Go do something nice for yourself.”
Hmmm…what to do…not sure just yet so it sits on the refrigerator waiting for me to think of something. I am inclined to log in once more and stick with it this time. Getting money back from my insurance company is motivating.
