A: 125 miles and 3 hours, 58 minutes

Q: And if gasoline costs $3.89/gallon and the car gets 17 miles per gallon, how much does it cost this mom to do all this driving?

A: Too damn much.

Sorry Amy! At least the gas prices are coming down a bit. I won't tell you what we're paying in Oklahoma.

Is Annie getting close to driving yet?

Yikes! And I thought my commute was annoying. At least I get a place and then stay there for hours, and hours.
