 Here's the thing...I have no oil.  
We ran out a few weeks ago and I'm not filling the tank until school starts.
At least that's what I told the kids.
It's SUMMER!  
Cold showers all around.
And then I TOOK one of those showers.
It was ARCTIC!
(like take your breath away cold)
So we boil water for baths or jump in the lake.
And then company arrived.
My husband loves that I am subjecting them to his misery.
He offered Kelley and her kids an upgrade.
Locker Room showers at the High School.
Guess what?  The water was not even luke warm.
They STILL didn't get hot showers.
But they were great sports.

Anyone ELSE want to come visit?
We'll treat YOU to the locker room showers.
Yes, we know how to have a good time.

Remind me to only come and visit you when you have oil! :) I don't even know what that means as our hot water just runs off electricity, but I'm not keen to find out :)

better than dead mice in the guest bedroom.
You and I should open and B&B together :-)

Bring it on. As Gabe would say, "we are having an adventure."

I think I'll take a raincheck. Wouldn't it be better to buy oil now at a cheaper price than wait until the fall when the price will go even higher? Might want to check with your oil company for the best price!!

I'm laughing so hard I've got tears. We probably used all your oil. Sorry! Not sorry enough to take this adventure away. There is definitely a super man theme going on, did that make it any easier?
