So today I ran
Another small thing that is highly appreciated here is the balls. No, not just any kind of ball. A big, full-sized exercise ball. The one we had for nearly 2 years got a puncture wound. And so I replaced it with two more. They sit on them (bouncing of course) to do homework. They roll them around the house. They do circus acts. Balancing competitions. You name it. All with two big gray balls. That I've loved to hate. And love. I highly recommend them if you have kids between the ages of 3 and 16.
Speaking of balls. Rayna is again in baseketball with her school. Now if you know us personally, you'd know that Rayna is gifted in a lot of things. Height isn't one of them. But she plays. With all her heart. And guards. And passes to her much bigger teammates. And they've won the first two games! Whoot!
Very recently, I got on the high horse. This time I might step on the soapbox. This time regarding insurance, medical care, prescriptions. But I try to keep this blog fun. Lighthearted. And mildly interesting. So all I'll say is that I nearly fell over when I heard the price for one of our son's asthma medicines would be $110. That for one month's prescription of a nasal spray - on top of $164/month cost for an inhaler. Um. $300/month just for the medicine to help him breathe? Oh boy. We see the allergist again next week. I'm not above dressing very poorly and asking (begging) for a pile of samples again.
The Halloween candy is bought! I got some of the stuff the kids usually like - Sour Patch, Laffy Taffy, Skittles... you know. But I also got the kind I like in hopes that there's leftovers. Come on. Admit you do it too!
Time to get hopping. Piano lessons and a concert are yet ahead of us tonight!
