Just Some Random Thoughts

All I can say is WOW!! You guys are amazing and so creative!! I am LOVING all the name suggestions for my hat!! It's gonna be hard to choose!!

So as I was coming home today from taking Heather to school, I realized that I needed to gas up my car. Drove by my local grocery store where I usually buy gas to check out the price. HOLY COW!!! Gas was only $1.78 a gallon!! And with my 10 cents off by using my value card I would only pay $1.68!! When was the last time gas was so cheap??? Guess I'll take all the money I'll save from my gas budget and start Christmas shopping!

And then, another thing I noticed while driving home was that a few of my neighbors have been busy painting their houses. Well, I'm all for sprucing up the neighborhood, but what were they thinking!?!?! The house across the stree is not the most awful shade of mint green I have ever seen!! It's like those little mints you get at weddings...almost neon! It's really bad. Especially with the white trim!! It's so bad I actually had to go back out and snap a picture for you!! But the pic definately doesn't do this aweful color justice!! You'd have to see it in person!!

And then another house down the street that I have been watching them paint....well first they painted the front door and garage door BLACK!! Not too bad...the house was a light, almost white color. But today when I drove by, they had painted the house a DARK, DARK grey!! HUH??? Can you say GOTH? I will admit, it is done very nicely and looks great...but personally I find the color a little creapy, LOL!!

OK, time to run. I need to go fill up my gas tank and stop by the dollar store for some envelopes. Have a great day!

This reminds me of a house where we used to live that was stained a dark charcoal grey.

When my DD was baby 4 or 5, we were stopped at the light beside the house when she asked me, "Mommy, is that house hell?"

I got quite the chuckle out of that, and told her no. Funny how she associated a dark place as bad.

You know, I have to say that, just looking at the photo, I think the blue/green house looks happy and refreshing!

We have some houses here that color too! Argh! I have no idea why people would want to paint their houses like that either. They shouldn't even make outside paint that color or just say... this is not for houses.
