{good n clean in snoozerville}

well, its just been one of those days. one of those days where i find that its just gone and nothing has been accomplished that i wanted or intended to accomplish and that just makes me tired. i had a carpet cleaner guy come out to clean these yucky carpets today, and they still aren't completely dry. he went ahead and "scotchguarded" them. What the heck that means we'll see with time AND dog barf, soccer cleats, dirty feet, and smelly kids. But he said that is what is going to take so long to dry. But this LLLLOOOONNNGGGG? Its nearly 7PM and they are still damp, I still hate to put stuff back into my house from the back porch and off the beds and the hallways. Question: when is it dry enough?? Poor Coopy has been in his kennel for a good chunk of the day because every time I let him out, he wants to wallow on the damp floor, what a ding-a-ling!!

With my realization that it was going to take forever to dry, I scooted out the door to hunt down a scrapbook store that I had heard thru the grapevine that was 25 minutes or so down the highway, then as i am leaving my neighborhood, I noticed that gas had gone up again 10 cents....10 cents, did you notice i had to write that twice. When does it stop?? Where does the gas insanity start to make people wake up and smell the coffee?? So, I turned my happy little hiney back home and sat on the couch and ate M&M's and watched my tivo'd "stories". Not because I wanted to, oh no!! I wanted to be out checking out the latest and the greatest scrap crap, but I am also tired of making the oil companies rich. So, there! They are less rich today and I am probably fatter! But eventually my carpets will be dry and my snoozerville life will at least be clean! But tomorrow.....I SCRAP!!

You crack me up. I can relate to the gas prices. It makes me not want to go anywhere.I wish I could just walk up to the store. Of course you can't walk anywhere because there are no sidewalks. I sometimes think that the oil companies had something to do with that too.

I hear ya about gas prices. It's absolutely ridiculous! I've started driving the speed limit to increase my mpg and I'm sure everyone else on the highway is fuming at me! But I stay in the right lane!

I've become a gas scrooge too. I try to make ALL my trips up to NN in one trip. I am SICK over the prices. It cost us almost $130 to fill both vehicles the other day. YOU KNOW HOW MUCH SCRAPPING STUFF YOU CAN BUY WITH THAT MONEY?? Ok, well, not THAT much... but still!!

My lss is a 50 minute drive and I haven't been there since January because of gas prices. It is killing me too. I've been getting my fix from shopping on line.

Yep, gas is crazy. I do most of my scrap shopping online now. In fact, I hate to sound like an advertisement but there's a new store opening up that is offering free shipping with purchases over $60. www.croppinsville.blogspot.com
(You can find a little more info on my blog too.)

love your post - the gas prices are crazy - I just got a new to me van and get it tomorrow and I am already thinking about paying for gas

emily said...

Right on! It's outrageous and I don't know what it'll take before it ends.

Yikes gas is over $4.00 here. I pretty much do my shopping when I can get free shipping on line but even shipping seems to have gone up.

Hope UR carpets are dry by now :' )
