I did it! I officially made myself feel old to my children today! Let me just put out there that I am 34 years old. I have 3 kids that are 15, 10 and 8. I consider myself a young momma especially to my 15 year old.
Here is the story:
On the road my son made a comment that gas was down to $3.07. He can't believe it's a whole dollar cheaper than a couple months ago...so I got to explaining why.
THEN I MESSED UP> I told the story of how when I was 16 and started to drive that gas was only .79 and that $7 could fill you up. Then when gas went to $1.10 everyone was so mad. They were angry and would line up for .99 gas sales.
That is when I realized I just told my very own " I used to have to walk 5 miles to school in 3 ft of snow story!"
Back in the day is not a phrase I will be using again. I am officially NOT cool any more! I am OLD! According to my kids!
I will tell you this. $3.07 is the cheapest I have seen in quite awhile. I keep waiting for the BUST in the gas price. It almost seems way too good. FUNNY how they have tricked us into thinking that 3 bucks a gallon is cheap!!
Do you remember how much gas was when you started driving???
