Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Lovin' These Gas Prices

Sunday, January 11, 2015

I think we're all breathing a sigh of relief with gas prices back down below $2.00 a gallon. But how about paying $0.009 per gallon?

We were able to do that over the weekend at Hyvee by taking advantage of some of their awesome "buy this and get ** cents off per gallon" deals.  Combine these with coupons and you can really get a great deal.

It's a limit of 20 gallons at that price and the Jeep has a 20 gallon tank.You can bet that I ran that gas tank down as far as I could and we practically sputtered into the gas station.  19.71 gallons and 18 cents later, we drove off.

In other news, the steroid injection has been working and I spent the weekend mostly pain free.  The sciatica is creeping back slowly but I've got a second injection scheduled for Thursday.  Hopefully, that will calm the nerve permanently.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

  1. Guess what! I'm baaackkkk. I posted about gas prices today too... I didn't do as well as you, though. I did not know about injections for sciatica... I have it, but it's calm at the moment. I'm going to read backwards for a while!
