Its a gas...

Gas was 2.79 today.

(cheering)

I never thought I would cheer for that....

I managed to get together with a long time girlfriend over the weekend. PN wanted to see her cousin, so she was dropped off there. I guess a weekend with 4 boys was not her cup of tea. So she spent the night with Auntie and Unlce and cousin curl, sans Momma, like a big girl.

SR and I went to my girlfriend's house, and had a lovely time. We went for pizza, the boys played legos, and were QUIET. She took us out to a pizza place for dinner. It was enjoyable, the boys were terrific.

Funny thing is, she has 3 boys, one of those is an EARLY riser. (SR does not do this any longer, thank goodness!)

We did manage to get all 4 boys out of the door by 9:30am, and we were at the zoo. Really the most perfect time to go. Very quiet, no crowds, or pushing. All boys were terrific.

I picked PN up today, she seemed to manage OK without dear Mom for the time she was gone....

That sounds really fun, AWTM!!! Legos can make for quiet afternoons, can't they? Gosh, I love those things!

I only paid $2.99 for gas today and that was awesome since I have to use the premium stuff. :)

Hugs to the Collective.

I'm so glad you went. You needed some "girl time".

Sounds like you had a great time!

Tell Sir R that I wish him a very happy birthday.

The card is in the mail......

Hope that DH has a great birthday! Also, quiet fun afternoon sounds good!

Our gas is the same price as Sarah's, but down to $3.50 is better than what it was.
I love going to the zoo first thing in the morning. The animals are usually more active at that time as well.
