My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

NEW MEDS UNBELIEVABLY EXPENSIVE

25 minutes ago, I got an automated call from the pharmacy, letting us know that my kid's new seizure med was ready. Our cost, after insurance: $881.  Yep, you read that right. Nearly $900 for one MONTH of seizure meds.

Even with our cafeteria plan, we can't afford that. 

Just left a message with neuro doc's nurse, asking if there's a generic or prescription card or any way we can get it cheaper.

If there isn't, I have no clue how we're going to afford that. We have only enough money for 2 or 3 months worth of meds ... after that, I'm gonna have to sell ... something ... to pay for them.

Guess we can't get the tractor this year, or plant fields of grain, or increase our goat herd.  After all, doesn't the health of our children ALWAYS come first?
