Will I Ever Find Time to Stitch Again ????

These last 2 weeks have been so busy that I can't even find time to stitch.  I hope today will be different so I can sit and relax (which means stitch)

Yesterday, Roger had his right eye operated on.  We were told the surgery went really really good.  Even thou his eye is still all red and his pupil looks like the size of his eye.  LOL,  he can already see out of it.  He keeps saying how everything is so bright.  All the colors are bright and pretty.  He is able to walk around the house now and not bump into the wall or step on a cat toy.  It so cool to watch him look at things.....

While Roger was in surgery,  I ran next door to CVS and Walgreens and did some coupon shopping.  I have been working so hard to save money and get some cool things that we normally can't afford.  This seems to be my new hobby.  LOL,  I feel like doctor appointments and coupons have taken over my life.
I picked up all these items.  Retail price was $189.63,  I had $126.38 in coupons and card savings, so the total I paid was $63.25.  That's a 66.64% savings over all.  Not to bad,  but I hope to do better next time I hit the stores. 


  1. Good news for Roger..hope he continues to improve and heal. Nice job with the coupons....

  2. Glad to hear his surgery was a success :)

    Wow, what a bargain! I should really pay more attention to the coupons we get with the junk mail.
