life happens. . .when you least expect it

I totally intended to make posts about all my adventurous shopping trips with coupons, but life is happening right now, and couponing is the least thing on my mind at the moment.
I've been dealing with family member's health issues lately. . .My husband is always in pain and nobody seems to know what is causing it. That's cuz its probably just me, I'm a pain for everyone. . .LOL! My Dad has swelling in his lungs and diabetes and can't hardly breath anymore.  My mom has a tumor of some kind underneath her leg, she will be going in for a biopsy soon for that.  My oldest daughter has been having asthma attacks again, too, which she hasn't had for the longest time. . .but we are all stressed out beyond the max right now. .Needless to say, life gets more and more complicated and stressful by the day.

Remembering 9/11 . . . .where were you?

I was on vacation from work, and had just gotten up and turned the tv on so I could watch one of my shows. . .and there was nothing on, but news and tragedy and heartbreak. I was astonished by the evil that had been allowed to creep into ou...r country and saddened, grief stricken by the lives lost. I just sat there and cried and watched as everything unfolded. I was scared that the terror that had been allowed to destroy a part of our country was going to make our whole country crumble like those buildings. I'm not scared anymore, we have awesome people that are there to protect us every day and keep a watch on our country with an Eagle eye! God Bless America as my thoughts and prayers go out to those who have lost their lives to terror and those who continue to fight for our freedom every day with never enough gratitude!

In prep for big shopping trip. . .

I have spent the last four days prepping my coupons and shopping list and ads for what I hope to be a huge and glorious haul. Hopefully all my preparation and planning will give me the best luck possible and the best price advantages. . .don't forget I'm still learning this stuff. . .so cross your fingers for me. Thanks
