all work all play

I have kept my plate quite full, after healing from my eye I have been constantly working, and when not attempting to be social in the world. my hand is broken still but I am moving around it working left handed mostly.

Crazy weather huh? To all those hit by the tornado, I am sorry, I wish you the best, and condolences to loved ones you may have lost. I suppose when not living in a flood plane or earthquake area, hurricanes and tornadoes are coming and we should just move under ground. This weather is odd, in NC I have seen and lived through one tornado in my area in my life before this year. that means 25 years, I have seen one, and that was when I was in grade school, elementary school mind you. I honestly believe this new condition's of weather are the effected jet stream from the gulf oil spill but I will never be able to confirm this unless the government decides to do so.

That being said, I am doing well beyond being broke and broken. my mind just needs time to recharge for some new content to be unleashed here.

Extreme couponing attempt 2

This time, smaller haul attempt and it was just my wife going out while I was at work. Baileys Coffee Creamer, she only bought one bottle, costing  2.15 with tax, she had two coupons for a dollar off coupons for the item, ended up paying .15 for the bottle, odd thing in these attempts, we really didn't need the creamer beyond getting a new flavor I suppose.

I would honest like to see our possibility of making a shopping trip and paying little to no money for most of the items, and I will keep trying for this goal for now, in some way I am sure we are saving money. With Fuel prices continuing on the up I believe everyones pockets are nearing empty or at least hurting. I just hope with these shows now on tv, that have caught my notice, and the notice of others, do not effect the coupons, or stores doubling them, or accepting them all together in the way people are using them on these shows. I heard a conversation about it between a cashier and a customer while in line at the local store today.
