So, it's over. I did it. Although, my voice is nearly gone now. The coupon class was a success. I think people learned something they didn't know before they came. I don't know how much that was, things took a direction I didn't necessarily mean it to, just meaning that I kept letting myself get off track and jumbled around quite a bit trying to touch bases on so many different aspects of couponing. I'm a very one track mind gal and when I get off subject it is hard for me to remember where to jump back on the train to make sense. I'm going to try something a little different. I'm going to get myself organized in the next few weeks, hopefully sooner, so that I can help people copy cat. I'll tell you where I'm going to get my deals, what coupons I use to get my deals so whoever wants to do the same can.

I don't know how successful I'll be at this, mostly because I keep so many things in my head all the time. It's crazy. I can't explain it any other way than I see a number for an item and automatically my mind breaks it down. Instantly I remember what coupon could go with it, where I have it placed and whether or not I can use a doubler with it and whether or not another store has a similar deal...then I break that number down until I can get that item for the least cost to me. But I don't know why my brain works like this, it just does it automatically such that I'm going to have to try very hard to write down the process it takes me to come up with the "deal"....and even now I'm not sure that I'm making sense so that you even know what I'm talking about! ACK! So, I guess instead of saying I got this for this price, I'm going to try to tell you how I came up with that price at all. I've got some figuring to do.

Jon comes home tonight! Yippie! I can't wait to see him. I've missed him. The kids have missed him, too.

Now, I think I'm going to watch part three of Pride and Prejudice...I've never seen it before and am actually enjoying it. I'm thinking of getting Jane Austen's complete works...we'll see.

Oh, and for the record, my foot is killing me! This last August I was racing Austin on a scooter and I fell up the driveway...I know nice, right...who falls UP? Well, I wasn't too smart and wore flip flops while doing this and when I fell I slammed my foot into the driveway and took the skin off all my toes and the top of my foot. I hit the top of my foot so hard and my foot was swollen and black and blue and looked horrible for weeks. I toughed it out and never got it looked at. Since that time, the top of my foot has hurt so badly, at times it has become unbearable and I've taken some old Vicodin left over from an ear infection some time ago. I don't know they can do anything about it since it's been months, but something is seriously wrong with it and I think that I'm going to have to go in now to have it looked at. Since I was standing on my feet for the class tonight it's worse and I took my shoe off and it's swollen..that's not a good sign. I think I have a few Vicodin left which might work even if they are a few years old. I really don't like to take pain meds, but man how...this stinks.

Enough babble for now. I really am a good babbler...hehe.

It was a great class-- I had to duck out early, but you did a great job! I am very impressed wtih your ability to explain things. You tottally blew so many minds with all this information. Who knows, maybe I will subscribe to the oregonian sunday paper again. :o)
