second mortgage...

oh my goodness...is everyone else freaking out about the price of gas? when i fill up my tank i swear i come real close to stroking out. i have a mini van people. $75.00 to fill it up. hello! gas is finally down to $3.95, a couple of weeks ago it was $4.05! unbelievable. this is in illinois, btw.

just curious, what are you spending for gas and what do you do to keep from having to take out a second mortgage to take a family trip? seriously.

My hubby filled up today and it was down to $3.75 a gallon. I just hope it keeps going down. We usually fill up when it gets to half tank, so it doesn't feel like such a bad hit. But, if we filled up from empty, we'd be paying $60 a pop for a little hyundai elantra. Ouch.

Quotes

Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity.-Margaret Nadauld
