  • boating - it's incredible expensive this year with gas costs being so high (our boat get 0.8 miles per gallon), but its the one way that we all really "bond" as a family, and I'd rather cut corners other places than give that up!

  • My day trips to St. Louis and Paducah!!! (gas wise).. Food is not a big deal because we have so much to choose from where I live.. I am trying to diet though, so I am buying the lean cuisine now... I think I could never give up candy!!!
