For some reason, the government seem to like having us suffer having to foot the gas prices for our cars. This is way too much and I don't like it not one bit. The gas prices will keep on doing this every few days to every week. What is with the Canadian government? I need the car for transportation as we don't have a metro bus in my village. Geeze.
I'm sure you must mean that you paid $1.42 per litre. A gallon of gas would be much more expensive. Because Libya, a country that produces 2% of the world's oil, is facing a civil war, gas prices have gone up. As far as I'm concerned, it was just an excuse to gouge consumers. We have a 2009 Ford Escape (a "fuel efficient" SUV), and we're spending a little over $70 a week to fill it.

Just think, if you were here, you might be paying closer to $100. You're lucky!

I only make $300/wk. I'm trying to slowly save up for a set of tires. I checked my tires today - won't be too much longer and I'm gonna be needing some front ones for sure! This $75.00 weekly fill up isn't helping any!

It costs $85 to fill the Expedition, $75 to fill the Explorer and $65 to fill my Mercury Sable. Luckily, the Expedition is not driven a lot, the Explorer can go 2 weeks between fill ups and my can can usually go 2 weeks between fill ups. Hubby only has to drive 8 miles one way to get to work.

My lunchbox only costs $36 to fill up and I only fill it up like every 10 days. I guess it was a blessing that my SUV got stolen?

Is that before or after taxes?

Gee, for us, hubby's take home pay is between $185 and $240 a week. Depending on the hours he works.

It appears a time period for us to struggle to make ends meet. People can't afford rent etc.. there are jobs out there but no one is hiring or competitive.

Why is it when I have finally gotten relaxed, I have to start something and get all stressed or whatever. Got myself cooled off and relaxed and hubby asks me to empty the closet so he can get to the attic to put stuff up there. Now I get relaxed again, and I have to put the stuff back into the closet, fix dinner and make his sandwiches for the week. Ugh!!

I know that feeling, you will get to relax later at least

Kristina, what series are you reading? I find that annoying too. If the librarian who orders the books thought that more than half the books in the series are worth having in the collection, the library should order everything, IMHO. Any chance of an inter-library loan?

Well - I was speaking this time about the Vampire Academy series, but it's the same with Beverly Lewis Amish stories, Sookie Stackhouse series, Elm Creek Quilt series, and a variety of others. I like a wide range of genre's but I don't like westerns. I check both our city and county libraries. The county has 17 branches and none of them have the others.

I visited my parents today in their assisted-living center and I was dismayed to see Dad in bed, in pain. A couple evenings ago my sister emailed me, saying that he fell in the dining room. She asked the LPN what happened, and he said that he was "just a couple steps away" from Dad when he fell. She asked him what time it happened, and he said at seven. Huh??? What the heck was Dad doing in the dining room in a dining chair at seven? I think he tried to get up to go to his bedroom when he fell. I wanted to rip the LPN a new one, but he didn't report to his shift by the time I left. I will certainly have a "talk" with him about messing up my dad's health and happiness, and I will ask him if he got his license out of a Cracker Jack box.

No wonder we might become homeless if nothing can do about anything about prices on those material things like rent or own a place, food, gas prices if we have cars, and struggle paying the bills. Finding a job is bad enough if we have to have the education like required to must qualified career or job (it is almost like certified in order to get hire for a job that we want).

Funny, how immature my sister-in-law can be to write about me on her fb comments I didn't steep her level to write about her what for? She's a waste of my time and energy.

I have a hard time finding something to read. I love to read just to relax and escape, but it's so hard finding things I like.
Inter-library loan.

Books sometimes are borrowed for longer than they are loaned out.

I asked about that and the response was "We don't participate." Then they said that the books that are missing are ones that were never returned after 3 years they are removed from the card catalog (internet based).

My vent of the day is living with the bitterness towards my ex hubby. I really do not want to live with it for the rest of my life. It is just energy consuming but hard to get rid of. GRRRR

I can understand why you would be bitter toward him cause that would be very hard to forgive.

I am not saying that I understand what you are going through (just to be clear)

my vent for the now is the frauds we have in my town , 3 womens who are ripping off the deaf community, because one claims to be an interpreter who FAILED six times!, another is a communicator but still continues to promote the other bitch AND the other one is a best friend of the self-proclaiming 'interpreter' who is now running her own business 'promoting NZSL for mute (not deaf) disabled children.. THAT is NOT on. This interfere Deaf culture and thus the Deaf community. If all I reckon is that she should be using Hearing-devised 'signs' like signed English, and leave us alone.!!

She stole NZSL, and now going to steal NZ Deaf culture , ****ing BITCH !!!

I will be approaching newspapers soon... AND telling off Deaf Aotearoa for their poor handling of this matter...
