Kroger run for fruit!

I am sorry this is not a fabulous post on how I got $500 worth of groceries for pennies, lol!
Also, I am really sorry that this post is gonna be a little off topic, if you are looking for deals, stop reading here because this post is just random! I went to Kroger today because we needed fruit for the kiddos lunches. I used a $4 oynso courtesy of Pillsbury and only spent .15 oop. Funny story: cashier saw my softsoap and said "I hope you don't plan on using the coupon for this softsoap since it is for the 8.5 oz size" I had to inform the cashier, I fully intended on using a coupon, but not to worry, mine was from All You magazine and it states for ANY size, lol.

Other than that , I have to admit I don't have anything exciting to post except for one thing you hopefully will not hear uddered from my mouth come next year!!!!! LMAO
Ok, all you poor, unfortunate souls that cursed your math teachers in high school and even in college. I am starting to understand your angst! You see, I am currently working on getting my certification to teach math to your poor, unsuspecting high schoolers and I have to admit(you will never hear me admit this again) some of this stuff is NEVER applicable in real life!!!! Sadly I am having to reteach myself this stuff since it has been YEARS since I have used it.......wow, why do we force some of this on high school students? Wow! What a nerd I was, I took Calculus as one of my electives and am having to reteach myself MOST of that year(sadly, I still have my notes-yes, I am that much of a NERD! gotta brag that I aced my Calculus final in high school and begged my teacher for the test so I could frame it, lmao!- I was really proud I didn't forget ANY "constant of irritation" as my calculus teacher renamed it!)

Anyway, sorry I don't have many deals to report, just have not done much shopping this week!

I would love to teach math to my middle schoolers (I currently teach technology), but even the middle school math test requires some calculus...really? I mean, come on.....people don't use that in "everyday life". I had awesome grades in math - almost 20 years ago!!! I keep debating going ahead and studying for the test....but I haven't *found* the time yet...lol

Just wondering, Have you heard anything about Kroger having another double coupon day like last August?

this has been the one area holding me back from applying for my MSc in Psycotherapy. The math. I struggled with it in school but managed to get a B (I pulled my grade from a D, so this was a big achievement for me). My mind just dosen't seem to get it.

think about how much space you could free up for more storage of your stockpile if you tossed all those notes?!?

There is this really awesome man named Patrick Jones who lives in Austin and has free math tutorials on YouTube. He is an excellent teacher and he teaches everything from Algebra to Calculus III and then some. You can find his tutorials under patrickjmt (for Patrick Jones Math Tutor) on YouTube, or go directly to his website, http://justmathtutoring.com. (Notice there is no www.) His free tutorials can be found in the right hand margin of his website. Someone should throw that guy a party!!

My son took the HS math certification test in San Antonio last August. He said that he used every minute of the 5 hours they allotted for the test. Lots of teachers with 15 years experience were complaining about it. He was excited to get his certification since he hadn't had a math course since his sophomore year @ UT 6 years ago!
