Just made myself a cup of hot Mystic Spiced Chai tea. Then I buttered bread and put a little sugar on it for a treat. My mother used to make me the buttered bread with sugar when I was not feeling well as a child. I was home sick a lot with asthma, thank goodness I outgrow it the asthma but I still like the buttered sugar bread. :<)

My mother made me hot cocoa and toast with butter and sugar.

I got Shrek's doctor called to change some of his meds to one's Medicare will pay for. They decided they would not pay for some of his Extended Release and his co-pay was going to $40 instead of $4. Now I have to get him on the mail-order medications...I wish he would do these things himself, but he won't and I end up paying out of MY pocket.

Princess, I'm right there with you. My husband just won't deal with the beaurocracy of the various things we have to deal with, him being retired army. Right now there are 4 different organizations (he's starting medicare as of his birthday in another month) I'm trying to sort. When I do leave it to him, he has temper tantrums. I can't remember what it was (health insurance? car? banking?) but the customer service gal told me my husband had to make the call himself. I told her, in a very kind voice, that if she really preferred to deal with him, I'll get him on. But we can both pretend I never told you I was his wife, and we can pretend that I'm a man, and no one will yell at you today. She complied.

Interesting. You both enjoy a haircut. I have hated getting haircuts since I was a little kid. I wonder if it's gender related.
