Thursday, September 22, 2016      1 comments

We have been on vacation since the end of August, and most of the time we've been on the go or without Internet, so I haven't written a blog in a long time. We left Texas and drove to Albuquerque to see one of our sons who lives there. Then we ... Read more

I'm happy to say that my dr's appt went well. My lab values all were good and I get to stop taking Vitamin D (which was very low last time, but is normal now.) I had been a little bit worried about my blood sugar levels because they were slightl... Read more

It took almost 4 hours, but I booked our trip for London for next year. Tried to book it online 3 times, but it wouldn't work, so I called the airline. After giving all of details and making it almost to the end, the call got disconnected. I cal... Read more
Day 210: Yipee! One of my travel vaccines was covered by insurance - the most expensive one!
Thursday, July 28, 2016      0 comments

I just got back from getting my anti-meningitis vaccine at Walgreens (for an upcoming trip to Africa.) They ran it through my insurance (who previously told me it wasn't covered because it was for travel) and it turns out it is covered. So I jus... Read more

Whenever I cut a mat for an 18x24 frame, I end up with a nice sized piece of matboard taken out of the middle. Something like 14 x 19.5. I decided to see if they sold 14 x 18 frames at Hobby Lobby and they do, so I took a piece of my matboard a... Read more
