In other health related news, my job has decided to change our insurance and I'm not happy about it. I like the insurance we have now (Oxford) and they want to change it to Empire. You should have seen/read how they put it in the the newsletter. As a matter of fact here it is:
"The Hospital intends to change our health care provider from Oxford to Empire Blue Cross effective January 1, 2008. The proposed plan increases our deductible, our out-of-pocket maximum, and the co-pay on office visits. The prescription coverage has mandatory generic substitution, which means that an employee who wants to use a name-brand drug when a generic is available has to pay the difference in cost. On the other hand, no referrals will be required, all LHH facility charges are in-network, and the network includes almost 124,000 providers as compared to Oxford Freedom plan’s 73,000. "
Oooo no referrals, how fantastic!!! (I'm being sarcastic!) I love how they put it though, like not needing a referral outweighs everything else.
I'm stitching pink this month. I wasn't able to last month so I nominated this month for my pink stitching. I only have 3 projects planned and if I manage to get 2 of them done I'll be happy. Usually I stitch a Bent Creek Snapperland when I'm on vacation, I only have Autumn left and I feel guilty for not stitching it but I really want to stitch pink! Here's a little preview on what I'm stitching for my first project. I saw it on another blog and fell in love with it. As soon as I'm done with blogging I'm going to stitch on it :)
I love stitching little people like this. She's just adorable, no? I went to my not so LNS in Long Island and bought a new needle magnet (the heart above) I also bought some other things (project bags and some charts.) I've decided to try and buy most things at my not so LNS' and not online because it's just such a joy to have a place to go to and if I/we don't support them, then they might go out of business. Off to stitch!
