Frustration and Looking Forward to FUN

You would think that people wanting to save money would come up with a way to print coupons with Linux - a FREE OS. I am absolutely amazed that NO site uses Linux. We don't use coupons on pre-made stuff as it's cheaper and healthier to cook from scratch but we do buy OTC medications; pantry staples; basic body care items and some cleaners and it would be nice to take advantage of the coupons when they become available. I guess I will just have to be satisfied with the coupon offers I'm able to get out of the Sunday paper and as a walk in at the grocery stores.

I was up at 1:30 this morning; it's now 2:12 and in about 45 minutes my alarm will go off for me to "wake up".  I guess my mind and body didn't want to wait this morning. I will have to catch a nap after work or it's going to be a LONG day.

I'm really glad it's Friday! The past couple of days at work have been exhausting to say the least and I'm looking forward to a trip to our property where I will be able to just sit and knit or crochet while Scott mows some more on our front field. I have a "yarn stash" about half of my fabric stash and need to use it up. I gave away a HUGE black bag on "Freecycle" awhile back and need to get the rest used up. Perhaps next Christmas everyone will get a hat or 2 or 3 dish clothes. I always love visiting these sites for FREE patterns knitting pattern central and Crochet pattern central . And the Lion Brand Yarn Company page also contains lots of FREE patterns for their members (it's FREE - you just have to sign up on the site).

I just stumbled onto this neat little site and thought others may enjoy it as well everything your mama made.

That should occupy you all for a little while... SMILE!
