This is a crazy week for everyone, isn't it? We decided to combine our two studies into one Bible study this week. This will make tomorrow a bit saner. We had a lovely time together. We haven't been able to go out for the past couple of weeks due to one thing or the other.
I had a "quick stop" to make on the way back home. Kroger pharmacy is no longer going to service Medicare D (Dad) or tri-care clients (us). I had talked to Fred Myers twice yesterday. I'd talked to the doctors. I'd talked to Carrs - the only other pharmacy in town. They assured me this will be easy. We got the letter this WEEK and it goes into effect January 1st. We stopped by Carrs to pick up the one new prescription Dad had and to insure all his prescriptions from Fred Myers had been transferred.
The new med had been denied by the insurance until January 12th because their records showed Fred Myers had given it to me yesterday. I explained they had NOT. I asked them not to as I wanted it from Carrs to establish Dad as a client. He called the insurance. He called Freddies to have them send prescriptions over. He asked me to wait.
While we waited, we wandered over to Starbucks. I then wandered back to the pharmacy. Leave the girls alone for a few minutes and crazy things happen.
Two hours after we walked into Carrs we left with one med, a cart of groceries, and it turns out Freddies only sent over 3 prescriptions...dad takes at least 20. No, I am NOT exaggerating. They recommend I simply call the doctor and have them send over all dad's meds and we'll start fresh rather than requesting it again from Freddies. I called the Doctor's. They weren't in. I know they are closed on Friday. ::sigh::
The girls and I got home hours later than expected, but we had a plan. We needed to get as much done today as possible toward tomorrow's Christmas Adam Tea because Tomorrow I have a date with Benny and the girls have a date with Arielle.
We made Peanut Butter Fudge Bars.
We cooked chicken to make chicken salad. We made truffles. Ours NEVER look as good as Jennifer's!!! They taste the same! That counts. LOL
Then we began the project I planned on doing yesterday! I was glad the girls were excited to help. I had ordered soy wax and other supplies online...I was ready to try an experiment. I can handle many diffused essential oils. I cannot handle scented candles. I get migraines. This is incredibly sad as we love scented candles. I wanted to make some with soy wax (which is supposed to burn cleaner) and ESSENTIAL OILS. I checked which oils wouldn't be toxic to burn. I settled on orange and cinnamon.
Allie has been so busy with work and school. It is wonderful that she is out of school - WINTER BREAK!!! She had the day off - we were glad we saved this project until she could do it with us. We laughed and sang and enjoyed doing life together.
