If ANTS won't eat it - should we????

hahaha... Seriously... I really do try to feed my kids healthy stuff... But as any mom knows - breakfast cereal is a really 'good' snack for on the go... So are Goldfish, Cheez-It's, Cheet-oh's... all that garb...

Point being - we frequent our backyard alot... And the kids leave their snacks all over the place... Ants galore back here... But the ants don't TOUCH anything other than 'real' food... Weird? I thought they freaking LIVED off of sugar! Apple Jacks, Honeycomb, Cheerio's.... Goldfish, Cheez-its... The ants seriously don't go near it... I'm thinking maybe my kids shouldn't either???

Anyway- serious post for the moment.. I think tonight I will create an anonymous blog so I can really really yap about whatever comes to mind... :o) Blogging is fun... Not that I have two-shits of a second to do it... haha...

Gas.... Cars... And crap like that..

I've been meaning to post about this like- forever... But totally haven't had time to fart lately - let alone blog... BUT... Jer and I have tried to minimize our 'ecological footprint' on the world - and our wallets over the past 6 months... We had a bright idea once gas hit the 3 dollar mark (and were still watching it rise) to figure out a way to become less dependent on gas... and stop spending 250 bucks a week to get to work and back... We sold Jer's Dodge (10 miles per gallon) - which was a kickass truck - but he got what he paid for it ... Put an assload of cash in savings and we bought a $1200 Chevy S10 that gets 25+ mpg... (Thank you Jessica!).... Anyway... then we bought a 93 Saturn beater go-cart for $700 bucks that gets 30+ mpg - and parked our family car... I love my Dodge Durango... seriously... I will buy another one when the time comes because its a kick ass SUV - but the gas mileage is like 14 mpg in stop and go traffic... So - basically I guess my point is... Does looking like a broke ass driving a beater commuter matter???? - haha.... Yes... a little... I would DIE DIE DIE if anyone that I knew (that didn't know I was saving 200 bucks a week by driving the beater and being 'ecological') saw me driving the go-cart... Does that make me vain???? yes... a little... But... I really like my little go-cart... and Jer really likes his truck... Beat up as they both are - they are good cars... and they are paid off!!! (its like driving money that isn't in the bank... could sell if we ever needed to in like 2 seconds for cash...) Anyway - I wanted to show off our beaters... because if you see me 'rollin' in my beater.... Be jealous... Because we're driving cash... and saving an assload in gas... and lessening our 'ecological footprint' as far as gas goes... haha...

Here's my little beater... :)
