Things are good on this side of the screen, and this despite my friggin' back. I'm much better but then again within the same day I can go from excruciating pain to no pain at all. It is strange how fast it changes. I don't know from one moment to the other how it will react. Yesterday, I was feeling no pain. We decided to do a grocery run. While at the store, it started to hurt to the point I got nauseated. It's eating at me, at my morale. I want to be doing stuff, but when I do it hurts. I've tried pushing though anyway, and only got worst. I'm stuck in this vicious circle and I am really tired of it. My patience (which is almost nonexistent to start with) is running thin, thus my tolerance.
Today I was actually able to iron a bunch of shirts which were due since the Holidays. I'm very lucky to have such a great partner. He's picked up the slack and has been cooking. Last night he made Beef Stroganoff that was delicious. Tonight we're having Chinese fondue, for which he made some sauce. He's been doing our errands, feeding the cat, giving it its meds and working full time. I'm lucky. I'm very lucky. I know that much. I've scrapped our week off during the Holidays because of my back, even of it wasn't intentional, we ended up staying home doing nothing but watching movies, series and icing.
Speaking of watching TV, I saw this show called "Extreme Couponing" on TLC. My first thought was WTH? Then after watching two episodes, I've come to the conclusion that these people are not only saving a lot, they are actually hording. I get the part about saving, but for someone to have supplies in stock like toilet paper rolls stacked up for over four years is a bit much, no? I'm surprised stores will let them use so many coupons at once. Over here, when we have a special or coupon there are always limits to the quantities we can get at once, so I was surprised to see someone with hundreds of dollars worth in goods to only pay $2.50 after all her coupons. I don't know about you, but I'm not good with coupons. I always forget them and the few times I do think about bringing them I forget to hand them in.
How about you, are you a coupon user? Do you shop using the weekly circular? Do tell.
