". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

I filled up my van two weeks ago. It cost $70. My goal was to try to make it for two weeks on that tank of gas. Well, I didn't make it. Yesterday was the 2-week mark, and I had to get gas the day before yesterday. And after three days in a row (and two days remaining) of driving my son to the other side of Chicago for chess camp, I'm certainly not going to make it two weeks on the current tank. At least it only cost $66 to fill up this time. I can't believe I was actually happy to see that number.

Between my driving and my husband's, I think we're going to have to look at taking in a boarder just to pay the gasoline bill around here.

Gas is significantly cheaper here this week which accounts for my being able to drive to Ft Wayne for a get together on Friday.

Gas isn't cheap enough for me to drive to Ft Wayne this week! :( ;) I filled up a couple of weeks ago and it was $120! But I drive a Suburban so.... :) Actually, if I don't go to Wed bible study I can make it four weeks on one tank (not counting going for milk of course). :) I kind of like the big tank bit too. :)
