You know, I stumbled across a website that does that and I was thinking that that's pretty neat - that it's kind of like banking it but you don't have to pay for it and if you need it, you get it back. My only problem with that is what if you DO need it, you know? I mean, it could very easily be spent...
I dunno, I still haven't made up my decision so I'm glad I voted maybe. I was talking to DH and he said that he thought it was a good idea and something to think about, but at the same time he didn't really give it more thought so who knows...
I think, knowing that members of my family have had cancer and that both my DH and I have one grandparent with mild Alzheimer's it might be a good idea... and on that note, if my family had been completely healthy I probably wouldn't be givin it much thought.
