There is a lot happening for us this week. The first big thing for me is that yesterday I officially became covered by Medicare. Yes, on Thursday I will turn 65. I now will need to let my doctors know of my new coverage as well as my pharmacy since my new drug plan kicked in yesterday as well.
Because this is my birthday week I have received several freebies from different places where I am registered. I have to take advantage of them. So, yesterday Kathy and I went to Ruby Tuesday for dinner. I got a free burger. Not the healthiest, but it was free.
Because we were both a bit full, even though I only ate half of my burger and brought the rest home, I couldn’t do dessert. So we went to Michael’s and walked around for half an hour. Now I was ready for dessert. On to Dairy Queen for a free chocolate covered cherry blizzard. It hit the spot.
As with every year for our birthdays, Kathy’s is August 9, we usually celebrate with a trip to NYC. Tomorrow we are off to the Big Apple to see Waitress and On Your Feet. We will meet our nephew and his fiancee for lunch before the matinee.
On our way home on Thursday we will stop in Hershey at Houlihan’s for dinner. I get a free meal there as well and it is a nice way to end our New York trip.
Friday we go crazy. It is the day we take the cats to the “spa” for their extended stay Saturday we head back to New York to hop a plane to Africa. We are basically packed for that trip so we just need to add medications and personal grooming items.
I can’t believe it is here already. I must admit that I am excited as well as a bit nervous. So, this will be my last post for about 3 weeks. I am not taking my laptop with me. Pictures and stories to be posted when we return.
