Starting the year with a Bang!

Just kidding.  Haven't done a whole lot.  I got Carson's play pictures printed and on a disk for backup, then removed them from my computer.  Jack took 70 of them so they can really clog things up.  I plan on making her a scrapbook of them for her birthday in Feb. so I really have to get going on that.  Picked up some embellishments to spice up the pages.  Then I scanned a bunch of family pictures for the albums on fb and put them on a flash drive so they too could be removed from here.  That's about the extent of my few days. 

I sure wish the Badgers could have won, but a Packer win over the Bears is a great way to start the new year.  As I said on fb, I made one resolution this year.  One I knew I could keep---more CHOCOLATE! So I celebrated that win with a Klondike Bar.  Doesn't get any better than that.  Now if they can beat the Eagles I can celebrate again. 

Though we went to the Moose for New Years Eve dinner we didn't stay for the entertainment.  The steaks were delicious but then we didn't expect anything less from the cook.  He always does a great job.  That he doubles as the administrator makes our lodge twiced blessed.  Reports from those who stayed said the magician and band were good, but the comedian was a bust.  Glad I missed him.

Went to have a perscription filled this morning and was hit with a shock.  The drug plan co. I had was taken over by another.  What they failed to tell me when they sent the notice was that I had a $150 decuctable on the first perscription.  Well when the store said $153 I was stunned and left it there until I could called and check.  Now I have to go back and pay for that as that is the important one I need.  A warning would have been nice, so I could have planned ahead or maybe changed drug plans.  Sheesh!  I don't have one of the those Big Public Employee retirement plans they say we all have (I was a public employee but my retirement is only $474).  You can imagine how this shock hit me.  So I will bid you adieu while I head back and pick it up.

  1. My goodness that was a terrible shock about the prescription. Will the deductible be more reasonable from now on? I sure hope so.

  2. Yes, Beth, according the the man I called to clarify this it should be a one time thing yearly. At least I will be prepared for next year if I stay with this company.

  3. Surprises in cost are never good unless they're in your favor and that decidedly wasn't...yikes! I've not had to deal with in prescriptions since last year and hope to not have to deal with that for some time this year.

  4. A good snapshot stops a moment from running away and that is why our pictures are so very precious and certainly worth taking.
    It's time to change our Packer/bear chant from "The Bears Still Suck" to: "Time Out - The Bears Still Suck!" Bwahahahaa! Just joking or am I? :)
