What’s everyone doing these days? Any spanking going on our there? There was one started here the other day, but it was cut short by a phone call. I might have mentioned that I’m a little on the spoiled side. Nick takes care of lots of ‘stuff’ around here. But he’s asked me to do something that, to be honest, I didn’t pay much attention. He doesn’t want me to let the car get below an eighth of a tank of gas. I do remember him mentioning it, but then never thought about it again.
It’s not that he worries about me running out – but he has pointed out that with the age of his parents and with Mollie living out of town there is always the chance we’ll need to make a hurried trip some time, especially to his parents and he said he doesn’t want to worry about stopping for gas.
Makes sense, but I never seem to think of the gas until the light comes on. In fact we got the car a few years ago in April and I didn’t put gas in the car myself until August of that year when I took a trip alone. Nick swears I plan it so that the car only needs gas on the weekends. I see no problem with that myself but apparently now it’s a spankable offense.
Maybe now that I’ve blogged about it, it will stick in my mind. See how you all help me?
