Mahalo, Aloha and Macadamia Nuts

Mark your calendars!

October 11th, 2017 i am YET AGAIN going to see my daughter aka Jenny Punkin Pie in Hawaii.
Oahu to be exact.  

It's just us girls this time around, so more trouble to be had. :)


This past week was The Scottymon's birthday week.  We started off with free hotel nights and money from Barona Casino and ended up going to Julian (in the Laguna Mountains) for lunch.  It was a nice few days.









 ...and finally.  we're looking to move to Arizona.  California has been my life long home, since 1956. but unfortunately, we're being priced right out of the market here.  As much as i hate to leave, it might be perfect timing since i am now officially retired.

Stay Tuned

Shame on Novolog etc


Shame on ALL makers of Insulin Pens. Novolog in particular.  This is my statement from Humana for January. Look at the ridiculous price that Novolog is charging for a 90 day supply of my insulin pens. 

Now, if I am a good girl, and spend $1,000.00 in co-pays then Novolog will let me apply for free pens. Yes, apply. Being accepted isn't a guarantee. Isn't that swell of them? Notice how my sleeping meds cost ONLY 3 dollars? 

As long as i keep being a diabetic, Novolog (in particular) will own me.
At this rate, i'm going to either A)hoard my pens (by not injecting the correct amount and therefore save my insulin) or B) win the lottery.


I can see why people are dying.  They can't afford the cure.




if you read this far, please let Novolog (or any other insulin carrier) know that they are probably one of the reasons people are dying. #ShameOnYou

Brian

 Today, February 27th, would have been my brother, Brian's 59th birthday. We lost him to cancer June 18, 2012, but not one single day goes by that i don't think of him.
Let me tell you about my brother. He was the best dad, brother, son, uncle and friend. He never said no, and sometimes that was his downfall. Next to my dad, Brian was the funniest man i ever met. He wasn't afraid to be embarrassed or be the butt of the joke.

Like most siblings, we had our ups and downs. I was the bully sister who would punch him, and when he punched back, i told on him and he got in trouble. He would get back at me by finishing all of his dinner when i hated mine. or he'd have the cleanest room when i was the opposite.
I loved my brother, and will regret not being there to say goodbye. but one more quality that my brother possessed was his ability to forgive.
