Lower gasoline prices!

I'm glad that the price of gasoline is not as high as it was last year. It got up to just shy of $4 a gallon last year where I live and lived. It got higher than that in some places, and while I'm sure that we would all like it to be lower than it is now..I am happy that it is not another $2 per gallon like it was in early and mid 2008.

I don't like that it is creeping back up from a few months ago, but am still glad it is hitting our budget less severly this time around.

What's making you happy?

Happy anniversary, satx56 - and I'm sure you'll have time to get out bright and early this morning to find a surprise for your beloved!

My happy thing today is that the Dane County Farmers' Market moves back outdoors for the first time in 2009. As soon as we're both up and dressed, my spouse and I will head downtown to stroll around the Capitol Square, looking at the heaps of early vegetables, the bunches and flats of flowers and the displays of cheese, in between people-watching. The usual Farmers' Market crowd here includes college students, hippies, families, and old folks doddering around the Square holding hands (we fall into that final category) and it's as much fun to watch all the people as it is to shop for fresh food straight from the people who produced it.

Ive never seen Madison in April, but can imagine its just as fun as any other time of year. Cant wait to see WI again!
Last time i was there, a friend of mine and I were walking around near the university and we were approached by someone asking for a cigarette but he called out to us 'hey, husband and wife, can I bum a smoke?'. We turned around to tell him we didnt smoke but where the heck did he get the idea we were married....we werent even walking close enough to each other to even look like we knew each other....??

If you mean Saturday, you're all right.

If you mean Friday......duuuuuuude, as a Cali surfer dude would say!

MBW I'm glad spring is coming to WI after all. REading about how our northern neighbors grow fatigued with the winter reminds me of how happy I was to see spring come when I lived in NY.

My happy today is that DS went to his first soccer game of the season and had a great time...he even make 2 goals. So his reward was playing at the playground at the park, which he just loved.

I also get to go out to dinner tonight with some neighbors...so I had to add that I LOVE my new town and the fact that I've lived here just over a year and can already say I've made some friends. Also happy that DH is staying home with the kids since we couldn't find a sitter. He's so wonderful!

I worked until noon then went shopping at IKEA. Last time I ended up finding what I wanted at WalMart....but this time I found some cool new stuff at IKEA that I wouldn't find elsewhere. It is glorious shopping in Orlando. They have every thing here.
