Another Health Care Fiasco

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I get my prescriptions from Walgreen's... Do you??
Over the last year Walgreens has been trying to renew a contract with Express Scripts as their pharmacy provider network.  Unfortunately both parties could not agree to a contract so Walgreens and Express Script no longer have a partnership as of January 1, 2012.  Express Scripts is essentially just the middle man yet many people will be affected. 
Many patients have had to find a pharmacy in-network so a big disruption in services has occurred to many individuals.  WHAT A HEAD ACHE.  Many patients are angry since some will have to travel farther to pick up their medications or some are unhappy to have to search for a new pharmacy.  
Does this affect you? 
Many people have  gone to the same pharmacy to see the same pharmacist for years and have a great relationship, who would want to change that.   Walgreens announced a comprehensive national effort to make this transition as smooth as possible and hopes to keep all patients business.  The only people impacted are people who's insurance plans are managed by Express Scripts and you can ask your pharmacist if that is you or check the back of your prescription card and if it say's "Express Scripts" you are most likely affected. 
What is Walgreen's offering now??
In order to minimize the confusion and upsetting people Walgreens is offering a special discount on annual memberships for its Walgreens Prescription Savings Club.  During January an individual will only pay $5 ($15 savings), a family membership is $10 ($25 savings)and you will receive savings on more than 8000 brand name and all generic medications.
You can support Walgreen's and stay up to date with them by following on twitter: Walgreens on Twitter or liking them on Facebook: Walgreens on Facebook.  
So go check look at your insurance card.  If you are affected go and sign up for the prescription savings club.  :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
