It started off bleak and rainy.
Even the dog would rather stay inside.
I had a hard time getting the kids to the car for drop off at school. Mina insisted on bringing the sunglasses. Wishful thinking, I guess.
Before Mina's gym class, I tried to fuel up for the morning that lay ahead.
Mina did too.
And last, but not least.... the car.
And that's when Monday really hit us.
I have never paid this much for gas in my life. Before this minivan, the last car I owned was a Honda civic, which I drove when I was in school. This price tag would have kept that tank filled for about three months.
