I may look sweet and petite, but when I fire up that diesel, I'm one big, bad truckin' mama

I love my monster truck, but it does drink up the diesel. DH has actually looked into homebrewing biodiesel.
I'm sure we would have a smaller car if we didn't need the towing capability. The Excursion is our only vehicle since DH has a company car. It didn't make sense to get a pickup that would just sit there while I drove something else. A pickup would be fun, but we wouldn't be able to haul anyone other than family members due to space. The Excursion allows friends to go and it keeps the groceries dry. Being a SAHM, I don't have to drive much every day, so the 44 gallon tank lasts a while, close to a month.

I'm a SAHM, I only run on about 20.00 every 2 weeks...they only time I use more than that is during sports season when I have to drive to away meets/games.... I don't car pool w/ other parents because I usually have my gang of children w/ me.. or DH are meeting places to exchange kids for other activities!

I have a 12 gallon tank, it's around $35 or so to fill up these days. that lasts me about a week and a half or so, driving back and forth to work and other odds and ends. DBF does a lot of the weekend driving and when we take a road trip, we take my car (he has a pick up truck)

I live in the heart of redneck country so I understand! I would have students bring in their latest deer pictures during hunting season all eager to show me and I'll tell you I was proud of each one. We actually had the first day of hunting season off school.

I would love to be able to drive a big 'ol truck but I have a hard time just getting in them. I'm 5'4" but have short legs. I have to pull myself into my BIL's huge ram diesel anytime I ride with him. I'm a proud minivan driving mama. I looked for a year until I bought mine and it's about time to get another and I'm really dreading it.

let's see gas today was $3.09, all time low as of late. It costs about $65 to fill it, sometimes it will last me the week maybe a week and a half. Depends on how many trips I make to the scrapbook store and the airport. DH and I looked at getting a mini or a bug because most of the time it's just me and the kids or me a DD but they are only 4 passenger cars. DH said he can modify the seats and add another belt but we'll see. 3 more payments and my truck is mine free and clear so I'm hoping to be car payment free for at least a year.

I miss driving a full size van. Now I'm in my tiny Accura Accord. Try getting a car seat into the back of one of those! A fantastical feat of engineering.
