shock for the day...

I really need to get out more. So, Karl usually puts gas in my car, but he has been working crazy long hours, so I needed to get dogfood and I was out of gas. I went to get gas and I was shocked at the price. I looked up and thought I was paying for mine and someone elses's...LOL!! I know gas prices are down some, I paid $3.09/gallon. I cannot imagine what I would have thought if I would have got gas when it was higher. I have a small car, not an SUV, so I do not know what I was thinking, but anyway... Ok, so after that shock, I proceed to Branson where I am going to Pet Smart for dogfood. Well, I did not realize our dogfood brand was so expensive. Karl usually does this also. I am usually there, just not paying attention. I really hate knowing how much money we spend. Ok, so the last time I got dogfood we had one dog and we got a much smaller bag. We now have 3 dogs and need a bigger bag, plus I get a pet store brand and not a walmart brand. I also decided that they needed new toys and some dog treats. Ok, well that isn't really even my "I need to get out more" moment for the pet store. I go to pay and the machine will not take my debit card, I swiped it like 4 times, then accidentally it taps the side and goes through. I was like OMG, what happened??? The girl tells me I have one of the cards you only have to tap to get the machine to work. I told her I didn't get out much. She was nice and told me not many people know about it because not many places have those machines around here. It was cool. Anyway, I dropped over $100 in about an hour, so I thought I better get myself home.
Well, this coming week is my last week of student teaching, then I will go back to work October 17th. It is bittersweet. I need to get back to work, but I will miss the kids so much. It will be a rough week for me.
The house hunting is not going so good. It is such a long story, let's just say the people that were interested in our house did make a bid, but it did not work out.
Karl is working a different job, but I am not sure for how long, so I will not go into it. He is working long hours though. It is hard on him. Good paycheck though.
I am just waiting for my parents to bring back Josh. He spent the night with them. Have a great weekend!!

You only paid $3.09 a gallon! When we went through town Sunday, it was $3.63 here. *sigh*

I don't like to pay attention to the prices either. It's too stressful! *lol*

Lori that is the funniest post you ever posted. You're writing skills are out of this world. I guess all that college is a Great thing. To fillmy tank with gas is $70.00 our gas is a lot more here and I do have a Suv. When I get dog food it's about $30.00 including treats, so I would be at $100.00 also. I wish I never had to see the price of gas again. It's very sad about Elizabeth just so shocking. Have a great day. Hugs
