So in case anyone really cares, I got over 30 mpg last week in my experiment to see if driving 60 really helps with gas mileage. I'm sure that my test was flawed, because I sometimes drove faster or was on side roads and such- it was still better than what I was used to. So it's not perfect but I'm happy.
In other news (which isn't very exciting), the past month and 1/2 or so I've really been hooked on reading. I used to read a lot when I was younger.. I think I have/had every babysitter club book. But i get in this mood every few years where I just can't get enough.. So for Christmas 2 years ago I wanted the Chronicles of Narnia, and I got it from my sister, one giant book with all 6 in it. I had started it then but then just didn't get into it until a while ago and I read all that in just a few weeks, but after I was done with that it was like "ahhh what else can I read" and so I picked up another book that I got for X- Mas from my Mom. I read 1/2 of it the first night and finished it the next day. Then I started looking on the internet to see what the best selling books were and there is a series by Stephanie Meyer and I bought the first one Twilight on Friday night and I finished that on Sunday. So I bought the second one Sunday night and I'm very close to being done with that one so I've decided to slow down.... Until I can find the third one in the series in paperback. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find it because I'll have to find something else to read. And I feel kind of dumb because this series is Young Adult (I guess I'm a youngish adult) but it's not like a kid book, but they are well written and the language is not kid-ish but it's not overly adult either just normal everyday language.. They are about a girl and vampires and werewolves, I like that kind of crap. I guess it's so much more than that but I don't really feel like getting into all of it.
Well, I'm planning on taking some garden pictures because everything is growing, the weather has been so nice and sunny here and barely and rain that stuff has been really growing (not the grass though)..
And I got an e-mail from the MN Wild asking me if I wanted to partner with someone who has season tickets. I'm really torn about it because it would be so awesome and since it goes through the team I might get some freebies or benefits or something. I'd be happy with just a parking pass.. I'm just worried that it will cost a ton but I don't think it would cost anymore than if I bought the tickets and since they sell out SO fast I might not ever get to go again.. I mean they want to know what price range you'd like and how many tickets /games you want.. I'd rather get in with someone's tickets because then it will be the same seats every time (and the same people around you) which I've learned by getting in on season tickets for the Twins, how nice that is.. So I'm going to think about it a bit and we'll see what happens..
Thanks for stopping and reading my stuff!

I've been trying to do the 60mph experiment too. But someone else always ends up driving my car and goes too fast! Which ruins the experiment.
