Laundry & Gas - Ugh!

The laundry had to be delayed until today. By the time the boys got up from their naps yesterday, Patrick's fever was almost 102 and he was feeling horrible. So we chilled out and watched a movie instead. :) Today, the boys were a bit better, so we headed to my parents to use their washer. We enjoyed our time there - our loooong time. We had a back log of laundry and it took several hours. I think we are mostly caught up...we have a couple of loads that are currently drying.

I had hoped for at least one outing this week to the Children's Museum but with the boys being sick...well that won't be happening. The good part is that staying home doesn't use gas. :) Is anyone else shocked and horrified at the price of a gallon of gas?!! We are trying to cut back on our trips out. I put $45 worth of gas in the Jeep (or 'Mommy's car' as the boys call it) and it filled the tank less than 3/4 full. Frustrating!! It makes everything so much more expensive!

Well, that's about it. It's pretty boring around here.

I hope the kids improve quickly! Yeah, the gas is terrible! I remember my disbelief 7 years ago with the $4/gallon price people in the UK were paying. I NEVER thought we'd be doing it too. I'm sure the UK is paying something like $8/gallon now, so I guess we are still ahead. :)

Hey, if you haven't gotten your fabrics washed yet (it just dawned on me that this might be a problem with your laundry woes), we can probably work something out... Just get them to me sometime (my mailbox at work works if you're there and I'm not) and we can get things going...
