A few days later

Folks, I am SO glad I'm not in Minnesota right now. Its cold.. really really dangerously nastily cold. Here in DC... we are in the 20s and teens tonight. balmy, my friends, balmy.

DH wanted me to talk about the new car. On our trip, we got about 49.5 miles per gallon. That was amazingly wonderful! It's comfortable, has lots of gadgets (that's important, you know... ) as a matter of fact, the whole CAR is a gadget. So, guess he wins the gadget contest. Oh... just in case you didn't know, it's a Prius.

let's see... not much else here. Green asked about my FRG.. I am hopeful. There were a LOT of uniforms at the last meeting I went to. Since the unit doesn't deploy as a group, but there are individuals who are deployed hither, thither and yon, the troops who are here are involved. The silly rules about fundraising are a pain in the tail, does anyone know if those are going to be discussed/changed any time soon?

Stay warm everyone. And oh, let's cheer REALLY LOUDLY because Mark is on his way home to Jan (author of Standing By... the blog roll has the link)

Talk to y'all later

I've had my Prius since Labor Day 2005. It has 57,000 miles and I am getting 54 mpg. I love this car!!!

I've been trying to convince my husband that our next car needs to be a Prius.

As for the weather? This last week we have been hitting lows such as -12 (before wind chill factor)

Tomorrow, however, it is supposed to hit 61!

Just think, within mere months you will get to see the cherry tree bloom!

Congrats on the new car! I remember when we got our Tahoe last Christmas I was so excited to go anywhere, even grocery shopping! I think the cool gadgets are the best part. What's up with your FRG fundraisers? Did I miss something? I think there are a lot of changes since FRGs are not mandatory not optional for commanders. The Army has added a lot of paperwork and rules to it!

found your blog via spouse buzz. I just traveled from MN to DC. DC seemed so nice and balmy after the tundra of MN! Congrats on the new car.

10 acres? Ooooo, that sounds so nice....where it is located?? My current obsession and distraction from work is browsing the MLS listings for about every property in MN. :)

It's cold here in Texas, but nothing like it is there! Of course to see my children dress to go outside you would think that we were in the middle of a blizzard!

I wish Stretch fit into a Prius...
