Funny backsides, cheap gas and missing you.

Today as we were at the gas station, the Little Jamaican notices a man putting air in the tire of a motorized scooter. She starts chuckling and then full on laughing. She blurts out, "Mom, I see that guys butt cracker." Of course, I have to look, yep, you can see where the good Lord split him. Leave it to a four year old to notice, find funny and point out such a spectacle to the whole car.

Speaking of gas stations, I was so excited to see that one of the local gas stations is down to $2.59 a gallon for our lowest grade. Then because I'm apparently not thinking clearly, I decided to see what it cost for gas in some of the other places we lived. Most of them were a few cents to about 20 cents lower. Then I got to Kansas. You know where we lived in Kansas is down to $1.97 gallon. Suddenly $2.59 feels a little high.

The Rocket Scientist was business traveling last week. Sadly not leaving me much time to blog when I'm running around trying to keep the Sea Monkeys out of trouble all by myself. This week is not different, he left today, taking my heart and my sanity with him.

I miss you all. I will be doing my best to catch up with you. If I don't you will know that the Sea Monkeys are keeping me buried.

We figured out that at its highest while we were in France, gas sold for over $9 a gallon. Lucky you, to us $2.49 looks like a steal.

I'm still paying $2.59 a gallon here in NW Kansas! :(

And Butt Cracker! Never heard that but I loved that you had to look.

I hate it when TNT is gone. We went 2 weeks last year apart when he was in Columbus, OH for new employee classes for the tool company he works for. I sure missed him, but it was funny how the house stayed clean and I only had to do a one load of laundry a week.

Yikes, good luck with husband gone. I have been miserable enough just with Mike working til 9 this week.

Not even a husband for the little tricks and treats?? Extra good luck if not!

I'm scared to say anything about the gas going down because I don't want to jinx it. It's AWESOME!

Wow! That's cheap for gas. We calculated that at its highest with the currency exchange rate at its worst we paid the equivalent of $9.00 per gallon in France. We're just grateful for the turnaround. We found it this morning at about $6.40/gal. We feel so lucky. Of course about 2/3 of that is in taxes.
