Stir Crazy

I suck at relaxing.

This is a known. For as much as I talk about wanting time on a warm beach with nothing but a good book and some 50 SPF sun-block, I’m really only good with that for a couple hours.

I’ve now been out of commission for 11 days.

The first few days are a big ol’ blur. Yay for drugs! (Only when prescribed by a doctor. Not fun drugs. BOO on fun drugs! This has been a public service announcement by the mother of three teenagers.)

But things stopped being blurry like a week ago and now I’m just fidgety and watching December inch by and feeling like I’m operating on the same functional level as nematode for brain power and general capable-ness.

I went into work yesterday. Several people argued with me about this. But I knew that my department really needed to see me. You can’t be a physical therapist, or an occupational therapist, or a speech pathologist and think that your boss who just had the brain hemorrhage is really OK until you see her. (Or him. But in my case “her.” Way her.)

So I went in for only three hours and came home in extreme pain (in my back, not my head, I’m having some weird symptoms in my low back which are confusing my neurologist. I so LOVE being a medical mystery.)

And I woke up this morning with the fuel tank hovering just over the E. I thought about what I would feel like if I went in to work even for a few hours and got…well…scared. I spent yesterday afternoon in pain and useless, and that was starting out feeling OK.

But…I’m angry. And I know I shouldn’t be! Really, I do. It is a miracle that I’m fine and I know I need to be grateful and take it easy and deal with a few weeks of low function. But earlier I had to tell myself, OUT LOUD, to SIT DOWN when I was puttering around the kitchen dealing with several tons of junk mail. (Cause we haven’t paid attention to it for eleven days. Google Earth is going to lose sight of our house if we don’t get on top of this soon.)

I’m restless. And anxious. And edgy and cranky and angsty. Basically, I am all of Snow White’s Dysfunctional Dwarves rolled into one newly-chubby package.

I would so suck as a Real Housewife.

Which, I suppose, is actually a silver lining.

In Which Standards are Adjusted Down. WAY Down.

NOTE: I am getting better. I really am. But you wouldn’t know that based on the depth of whiny rantitude that is about to commence without me saying that, so I’m just going to put that out there up front.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled bloggy goodness.

It has been observed, by people who have known me for more than eleven seconds, that I am somewhat obsessive anal psychotic detail-oriented. And obsessive anal psychotic driven. And that I’m not really satisfied with the day if I don’t get roughly fourteen thousand things done.

And that’s if I oversleep.

Things are different in the Land O’ Lori these days. (NOT to be confused with the Land O’ Lakes. Although I do love butter.)

And I am NOT happy with the current status. No sirree bub.

Waking up? Now takes a good two hours. Not that I was ever one of those mutant rise-and-shine-get-your-teeth-kicked-in types, but I could function after 20 minutes and a cup of coffee. Now I have to wake up, get the crane in place, pay the union wages for the crew that has to man the heavy loading equipment that needs to help me move, force down a quantity of tylenol and ibuprofen that probably causes premature balding in rats, and sit for about 45 minutes before I can stumble into a shower where I will promise myself – AGAIN – that I will shave my legs tomorrow.

Laundry has now become a completely discretionary activity. If it’s not crawling or launching its own e-business, I figure I can get away with wearing it.

And don’t get me started on my job. I’m supposed to work a 6.5 hour day, and that presumes a pace that would easily get me a Doritos or GoDaddy NASCAR endorsement. There is no pace now. There is anti-pace. There is no multi-tasking. There is only uni-tasking. (There is also uni-brow, but that’s another story.) My staff is afraid to bring things to me for fear that an arm, a leg, or a portion of my cerebral cortex might fall off.

The shelves in the refrigerator are so sticky that we could trap bears. And given the state of the kitchen, it’s entirely possible that a disoriented panda could be in there and I would seriously have no idea until it complained about the condition of the microwave.

I now measure things in terms of how many minutes I can do them before 1) I am too tired, 2) I am too uncomfortable, or 3) my children decide it’ll just go better if they do it themselves. My kids are teenagers. Is there any greater shame?

I know I’m supposed to be ok with going slow, and cutting back, and relaxing standards. BUT FOR GOD’S SAKE, DON’T YOU PEOPLE KNOW ME????


Fine. For a while I will be content if I have socks on the INSIDE of my shoes, the take-out food budget stays SLIGHTLY smaller than the national debt, and that I remember that I have two kids and three cats.

I mean two cats and three kids.

Guide to Different Types of Coupons

People who want to save money are going online to hunt for coupons. But, even if online coupons are the best way to save, many people who are new in couponing may find it hard to know where to look them, or even how to use them.

So, maybe you want to get involved in couponing but get confused when you hear about the different types. Isn’t a coupon just a coupon?! Well, here are the main types of coupons you’ll encounter;

  • Printable coupons are the ones that can be printed and can be redeemed in the local stores. They work like the printed coupons found in the magazines, newspaper and coupon book. You need to find the coupons, to print them out and to take them to the store. You do not have to print the coupons using colors and you will not be able to use them online.
  • The dollar off coupons – they are the coupons that help you to qualify for a fixed amount off when you buy things.
  • You can also find the coupons that qualify you for a certain percentage off. These coupons work like the dollar off and you use them if you wish to reduce the bills. The amount of the money saved will be a specific proportion of the money you’re willing to spend. If you spend more, you will save more.
  • Free shipping discounts do exactly what they say. This qualifies you for free shipping of the products that you have already bought online. You may also find a deal of free shipping and free returns.
  • Group buying deals. These are top online coupons offering huge discounts for bulk buying, but only if a certain number of people (you being one of them) make the purchase. If you are interested in group buying, you have to act as soon as possible since these coupons expire soon.
  • Online Cash off Coupons: Here is certain amount of your bill or a percent of your bill gets cash off, or cash back, meaning when you shop and is paying off your bill, you tend to pay the entire amount, but once its paid, the company, as a promotional act, refunds a percent of your paid bill directly to your account from which the money was debited for your purchase.
  • Paper Coupons: Besides the online coupons, there are also cut-out coupons which come out with newspapers and magazines and give you interesting offers like free gifts, surprises, buy one get one free offer, discounts and cash-backs.
  • The latest great daily savings that you can enjoy are known as the geo-referenced mobile deals. The technology is used to know your location and provide coupons direct to your phone for shops and restaurants nearby.
