Good Morning,Marie. I am late. I have been fighting with the insurance company. I have Medicare. My Gap used to be Blue Cross/Blue Shield through the town of Arlington. Ignoring the 4 unions they put us in the state plan. My Gap now is UNICARE. They refused 5 of my refills. I must get a Generic. Some of my pills do not have a Generic. I have to go to PCP Endo Eye doctor ortho and they MUST authorize me to take the name brand. This is uncalled for. Insulin does not have Generics. I guess I am stuck. I will have to do it.

I have 5 egg rolls...can I freeze them? He also brought chicken lollipops and Beef and Brocoli with other veggies. I think that might spike me. I finally got my BG to 106. Russ sees doctor at 12 Tom will go with him. He is still coughing. 42 degrees this morning. I had to put on the heat. I hope Ed is doing OK> These are crazy days. I never heard of all I have to go through. I told the phramacist I would pay for the eye drops. He said it would be over $100. What is going on with you today? I hope youare doing ok. Sorry I am in such a fighting mood. HUGS,Reed

Good to hear from you!!

I learned to treat my number like that from DINO... so it's been passed around the TuD community :)

Our little A loves the water. It's fun to watch him discover new things.

I go back to teaching on Tuesday. It was nice to have January off... I need to get my lesson planning started and get back in a rhythm.

Hugs to you!!

Hi Marie. What a late morning. I had called the pharmacy with 7 refills. When I got there I got 2. My NEW insurance company would no refills unless I go back to the doctor and get new scripts. Brand name refills my co-pay will be $50. I will ask my doctor to give me Generic. I did get Lantus and Novolog Medicare pays for most ot that so my Coo-pay $25. The town where I worked did no favors for the retirees with this plan. HUGS,REED

Hey Marie. Thanks for letting new folks know about today's event! That's a great idea. And good catch about the "refresh" thing. Yeah, I think telling people to click on "home" again is the simplest way to convey it.

Good work, lady!

Good Morning,Marie. Been up since 4 Russ wanted to talk. How are you this morning? High r low? My BG was 180 due to the injections. We were supposed to wake up to thunder and rain. Nothing yet but it is very dark. Did you bake off your bread?> How did it come out? Isn't that a wonderful show of kindness and support to Linda. There is still goodness in the world. How is Ed? What has he been up to? Tell him I send my best. Take good care of yourself enjoy the bread mmmmm andwill talk to you later. HUGS,Reed

Evening dear Marie...I am SO tired!!
People are coming from left right and centre to help Danielle, Timothy. Steph and the little ones. An emergency fund committee has been implemented at MY school even though donations (monetary and material)have been ongoing since news have come through of the tragedy, and staff as well as parents are donating (some parents are those of children I don't even teach! Our church is putting an announcement in the bulletin, parishioners and neigbours are dropping off items. Oue doctor has donated our children well over $200. Mason's (our grandson)school has sent a letter to all families at the school, explaining the situation, and implementing a "Mason Fun Day" on Feb. 2nd with movies and popcorn as a fund raising event. A close friend of our children is arranging a fund raising party in a hall. The list goes on and on. People's generosity overwhelms. God in our midst....praise to you Lord from whom all blessings flow ♥
Here, at home, it's crowded....but we can manage. Thankfully we are all together when support in so intensely needed.

Hi Marie -- Thanks for the welcome. Not sure if I can float into the chat... is the timing PST, or what time zone? I work in the afternoons, so it might be a no go. We'll see. Hopefully I can make some time to pull together more info on my page, along with some pics along the away. Here to learn more about the 7+. Thanks.

Hi Marie....yes, I am taking a break from greeting on Tu., there is SO MUCH on my plate at the's absolutely dizzying. I have to say though....people in our community, and family and coming forward left right and centre to help out. The generosity is overwhelming. My daughter's place of work and the school where I teach are raising well as our church. God in our midst.
