Just a typical Sunday here at the Ramos household. I slept in till 8, (well, that's sleeping in for me, since I'm up for work at 445.) I had coffee, looked through the supermarket flyers, made a grocery list (which of course I left home when I went to the store.) I did three loads of laundry and loaded the dishwasher; and in the process I got a terrible spasm in my back. What the heck? Thankfully I've never had back problems; but this spasm was a doozie!! I get spasms in my calves from time to time, but usually when I'm sleeping; but to get this out of the blue back spasm; now THAT was unexpected.
Because I'm a trooper, with a high tolerance for pain; I toughed it out and took the girls to Kohl's. We got a couple of great deals for them; went home for lunch, and then Lyndzi and I headed to our second Kohl's of the day, because there was a shirt that she was after but they didn't have her size at our first store; AND I needed to get a pair of pants for Kels and they were out of her size at the first store too.
I came home, folded some laundry; and then Luis and I went to Fry's. I got some more great deals, used the Albertson's $10 off a $100 purchase coupon, and then they had a $10 coupon of their own that I didn't know about, but my checker applied. I stocked up on toothpaste, butter and water; which brought me an additional savings. And for anyone who's interested; they do have Capri Sun on sale again for $1.49 When all was said and done, I had saved about $76 dollars; Luis was quite impressed, and so I was doubly happy.
Yup, just pretty run of the mill here for me; but sometimes run of the mill is OK. I'd take run of the mill over drama ANY DAY. To me, if you have a day when nothing goes wrong; then it's a good day. I remember a couple of months after I'd gotten married and we were living in Orlando; I was talking to a friend who was single and living in New York. My friend asked what was new; I said "nothing much," and she seemed very disappointed. I explained that nothing being new was definitely better than something being wrong. We spoke a lot less frequently after this and our conversations were very different because I didn't have stories of going out and meeting people like she did; but I had happiness and contentment, which was all I ever wanted.
