It won't stop me!

So, yesterday I was among other frustrated drivers as I filled up my van. Have you ever looked at the faces of the other motorists and noticed the look of disgust on every one's face? It is so stressful to feel like you are giving your whole paycheck away to the oil companies.

Kelly is thinking about selling his car and buying a scooter to drive to work on. His friends at work were giving him a hard time saying that it wasn't too cool for a cop to come to work and a scooter. However, if he wore his gun belt it would be a little bit cooler. Although, if he comes to work with his partner on the back of the scooter, the coolness goes way down again!

I suppose this stressful feeling should keep me from making the nearly 700 mile drive to Salt Lake, but it isn't! Despite the way I feel, we are still going to make one last hurrah to Salt Lake. If gas prices keep soaring, this might me the last anyone will see of us, ha ha!

The price of gas is outrageous! We've been cosidering selling our Yukon before we move to Utah just so we don't have to pay for the gas to get there! Devon thinks he should get a scooter too. How long are you going to be in S.L? I hope you have a great trip!

Joe was out of town all week, and I seriously considered driving to San Diego to see my sister until I thought about how much it would cost! So frustrating!

I am sorry for the High price of gas and we know it is a political thing but there is nothing that we the middle class people can do to change things EXCEPT GET OUT AND VOTE!! I am going to be working at the polls and doing my part. Love you guys a lot. I can see you on the back of a scooter with the kids all buckled up in a side seat. I really love your posts.
