Upcoming plans

It seems like we have been so busy lately. The next few weeks are no exception. I am having a dinner party on Saturday evening for some of my old friends from high school. Some I have kept in touch with but some I haven't seen in over 30 years. On Sunday, we are going to the newcomers class at Long Hollow as the first step in membership. Sunday night is small group meeting . We met some really nice people last week at our first meeting. We love Long Hollow!! Monday night is MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL with the Titans vs. Colts. We will be there, and since half-time is about my bedtime, if you see me on tv , I'll probably be asleep in my seat. Wednesday of next week, I am having another procedure to try and aleviate my back pain, and then on Friday I am off to Seattle to see Dale, Tina and the girls. I can't wait to see them. I will definately post pictures of that trip. Ok, time to get to work.

Sticker shock

Recently, Kevin and I have had prescriptions to be filled for very expensive medications. My insurance has a drug co-pay of $10, $35, & $80. Before I took my prescription to be filled, I did a quick search on the internet and found a $15 off coupon. It was an $80 co-pay with my insurance so the $15 off helped a little. Kevin took his prescription to be filled last week and the Dr had written a 90-day supply. The cost was $160.00!! That's right One hundred and sixty dollars. The funny thing is that it is for Restasis which is supposed to help with dry eyes. We both said it helped made us cry at the cost! Kevin questioned the pharmacist about the cost and she told him that without insurance it would be over $900.00. Who in the world can pay $900 for prescription drugs?? Armed with anger over having to pay such a high price, I did a search on the internet and found a $20 rebate for his prescription. Also, it was time to refill my expensive drug so I got another $15 coupon and Walgreens had a coupon in their ad recently for a $25 gift card with any transferred prescription. I used the coupon and the with the gift card, it brought my net out of pocket to $40.00. Hopefully I'll be able to use the gift card with some other coupons and sale items to maximze the value.

I would be remiss if I didn't post about my favorite college sports team. The Vanderbilt Commodores (some say it is THE university of Tennessee) is 4-0 and has a nationally televised game tomorrow night on ESPN. Espn will actually be broadcasting Game Day from West End here in Nashville tomorrow.


It was 30 yrs ago today

Well, it was actually 31, but who's counting? Last weekend I attended a Glencliff High School all 70's class reunion. The class of 78 had their 30 yr reunion party and all classes that graduated in the 70's were invited. Most of my favorite girls and a couple of favorite guys attended and it was really a lot of fun. Some of these people went to elementary school with me!

A special thanks to Lisa Furkins-Martin and Jane Payne Tilley for all of their hard work and a super big thank you to Lisa for taking over the event solely when Jane's son became very sick. (Praise God he is now home and recovering.) I have such great memories of high school. This event was such a success that the 79 class is thinking of having the same format. I hope Lisa will help them with the planning. She has such a gift.

Here are a couple of pictures.
