I’m On A Blog Trip – Welcome to West Virginia


Here are the gas prices at the Shell and Exxon near my home. I’ve always used Exxon Supreme in my vehicles to avoid the knocks, as you can see it’s a little less than Shell. When I first purchased my car a year ago, I could fill up my tank for $35.00 to $40.00. It now costs $60.00 to $65.00. I try not to complain, I feel blessed that I have a job that allows me to afford such a luxury. Yes, I said gas is a luxury! There will be no booty shaking on these 2 finds.

Unfortunately, I live outside of town and it’s not feasible for me to walk to any stores or to my office so I can save on gas. I have started walking around my neighborhood to work off the frustration that I feel when I fill up my tank. So, something good has come out of this nightmare. I also try to run all of my errands the same day.

Because I get depressed when I think about gas prices, I’m going to treat myself to something nice today. I’m heading to the Country Inn and I’m going to have a mineral bath, Swedish massage, facial, manicure and pedicure. I treat myself to this package each year for my birthday, which is September 6. I come out feeling like a million bucks. I thought I would go early this year so my new blog friends can join me. Now just click on this link and pick out your package. Close your eyes and imagine yourself receiving this treatment and enjoying a nice lunch with your new blog friends. Wasn’t that wonderful? I’m putting a gift certificate for myself in the Grandma Bag for next year. Lets give the Country Inn 3 snaps and a booty shake ladies. It was definitely better than thinking about gas prices wasn’t it?

Up the road about a 1/4 of a mile, you will find the famous Berkeley Springs Castle. Now that we’re feeling like royalty after our Spa treatment and delicious lunch, lets enter it like we own it ladies. Put on your tiara and grab your bell. There are maids and butlers to serve your every whim. Isn’t it beautiful!

Well all good things must come to an end, but we’re ending it as royalty. I hope you enjoyed the day and your spirits were lifted. Tomorrow I’m heading to a few of my favorite restaurants. There are two things that I do well, shop and eat! I hope that you will join me for another day of fun, lol.

  7. The spa definitely took my mind away from the depressing gas price. šŸ™‚

  8. Mmmmmm, that spa day sounds wonderful!  I am an esthetician, but I haven’t worked in over a year because I stay at home with my daughter, so I miss getting things done at the spa all the time.  I haven’t had a facial in a long time!
