The Real 100th Post: Also very special.

So I did the math and according to my archive on the side bar I only had 99 posts. I went to the edit posts page and sure enough there was an empty draft from way back in Nov. 2007. I deleted it and now my dashboard and archive match up.

On to the good stuff - Did I say good? I meant GREAT! Today on my way home from picking up Sam from school there was a ding from my dashboard alerting me to the fact that my gas tank was on empty. I went straight to the gas station. I got the nozzle into the tank and started the fill. Then I got busy washing my window. I got a little distracted... and freaked out when I realized I wasn't watching the pump. You see, I have been on strict orders from my accountant - aka Matt - Not to go over $25 while gassing up. All summer $25 got me about half a tank and I could make it last about two weeks. So I hightailed it over to the pump and imagine my surprise when I found that, not only was my tank full, but the total was $20.11!!!!! I put in over 12 gallons and that was the total! I wanted to jump up and down and shout like I'd just won the lottery. WHAT A HAPPY DAY!

I'm with you on that one!! We can fill up our van for about $25!! That's just crazy!! It is a little biter-sweet though. (Knowing that the only reason the gas prices are so low is because the economy is majorly suffering!!) If we could only keep the gas prices down low, and boost the economy.. that would be the best of both worlds!! :)

You and I must have been doing the happy dance around the same time, because I too filled up my car for under $25 the other day. Woohoo!

If gas prices stay this low, I may just drive out and visit one of these days! So get my toe puppets ready!

I still cannot believe that the price per gallon is below $2. Every time I drive by gas stations I check the price. I started this because of the raging gas prices, and trying to find the best/cheapest deal. Now, I look and drop my jaw every single time. $1.45? Holy crap, that rocks!

Thanks for the post, we really do need to appreciate something about the state of affairs our country is in.

I know! Isn't is awesome? I was just asking Nick... how come when gas was skyrocketing everyone was shouting "why?" and now no one knows why it's shot down? and i wanna know "WHY?"
