Mom’s Livin’ on the Edge Again!
That’s right folks, I’m Livin’ on the Edge again! Watch out!
Honestly, so I can’t even recall the last time this happened. When my van says it’s empty, it means it. There isn’t much of a warning, believe me.
Stranded with 3 kids in the car? NOT my idea of a good time, freaks the bajesus out of me!
Oh this would freak me out too, but I have also been there! lol
Freaking out together!! lol
Your right and literally on the edge lol
Yes, that is so right, Hahahha!!
Yep that would make me a little scared too!
I have to admit I let mine go really low all the time. Til I’m sweating in hopes I make it to the gas station. I mean why stop unless you REALLY need gas lol.
Mine is so strange, when that light come son – you GO GO to the nearest station. Hardly any warning at all! lol
I hate it when that happens! x
NOT a good feeling, driving on empty. According to Kramer on Seinfeld – it’s liberating! (LOL – if you haven’t seen that episode – you should try). Thanks for hosting and have a great week.
I remember that episode, wow!!
Oh no! I hope you didn’t get stranded any where!
Not this time … 🙂
Oh no that’s horrible! glad you and the kids are ok
Ai @ Sakura Haruka
Oh we are just fine. More like a game of chicken with my van.
She always wins… *sigh*
My Durango was the same way. When the low fuel light came on, prepare to be stranded unless there is a gas station in sight!
Exactly! I think our vehicles are against us together!
Oh man! I can so relate! I have three kids six and under and the thought of being stranded with them is a VERY terrifying thought!!!! You certainly were “living on the edge”!!!!
Sooo…did you run out? I’m on pins and needles…LOL!
Ha, no. Just in time!!
It must have been a stressful experience. I hope everything was sorted out quickly. Thanks for hosting and Happy WW!
I hate when that happens too. luckily there is a gas station around the corner from our house. Hope you weren’t stranded.
They are re-building the one closest to me, so everything seems out of the way to me now. If only I remembered WHEN I was close to one!! lol
Oh no! I have BIG stories about running out of gas. What a nightmare!
ya, there is pretty much nothing good about that!
Ooh! That’s always a little nerve-wracking!
The “E” is just a suggestion anyway!
Ha, nothing to take seriously, just a suggestion … like the yellow light.
I couldn’t imagine!!
Yes! I hate being low but happens to me too often!
I ignore the light in my car all the time. I’m not sure what it will take for me to learn to fill up when the car’s at a quarter tank.
Especially in the Winter, I know it’s not good to go past half, yadda yadda.
you should get in the habit of filling it up once it gets to 1/2 during the winter. in my opinion anyway.
I am a pro at being close to empty in my car…not good!
Oh no! I hope you got to where you were going! I used to drive with the bar on empty all the time. I would put a couple dollars in every day to keep it running, but I never ran out!
You sure know how to live on the edge!!
I’ve been VERY close to empty quite a few times. I really need to be on top of it!
wow! you sure know how to live on the edge! Happy WW!
Yikes, you certainly get a sick feeling when you see that light come on and there is no service station in sight!!
That is my fear, running out of gas.Especially when I have my kids with me. YIKES
Kids or no kids – it would freak me out!
Thank you for visiting my WW: Instagram Images w/Linky @ ImagesByCW
Oh no! I hate seeing that little gas thing light up and start dinging at me. Luckily we have an Esso station about ever 3 km or so.
I’ve only actually run out of gas once. And thankfully I was just a teenager, and it was only a couple blocks from my boyfriend’s house. I walked back (cell phones didn’t exist then – literally) and his dad went and got gas for me. So embarrassing!
Running on empty! Reminds me of a song….
Thanks for linking on Amanda’s Books and More! I hope you didn’t have to wait long for help. I am scared of something like that happening to me, so I try to have my mobile phone with me even for short trips. 🙂
Oh no you didn’t! LOL
That would scare me!
That would FREAK me out too!!
Running on fumes! 😉 Great WW
That has been me a few times. I have run out of gas and been stuck at Walmart 🙂
hahaha that sure is living on the edge!! I always feel like I’m living on the edge when it’s on empty too 😉 Must be a mom thing!
I try not to go below 1/4 tank. Thanks for stopping by.
My husband never lets the car get below 1/2 mark. He’s PARANOID about running out of gas.
i’m a freak for stuff like that! i have 30kms left right now and im already concerned lol
haha that totally freaks me out too, and my boyfriend ALWAYS mocks me saying, “Look at you, living on the edge.”
I hate getting below 1/4 a tank. SO ya, that would be a “Freak Out” moment!
That’s really no fun with kids in the car. I hate when my teenage son comes home with the car on empty.
I went over the edge long ago I need a life saver someone help please lol
While on our way to camping up North this summer, my hubby and I pulled into a gas station driving on fumes with ZERO km left! I was never so happy to see a gas station!
I try to keep the van filled up, but my husband’s car is usually close to empty if I ever borrow it…
i drive a car and now what you mean my idiots light are out so when i am getting near empty
i better get gas
Dad always told me to fill at 1/4 tank, especially in the winter.
The thought of being stranded with kids in the car…that is when things really start racing in your mind…I keep tools and engine oil and even a 12 V tire gauge and air pump in the car….yikes!
I have a light that pops up and reads…gas gauge low…gives me enough time to head to station but not safe to play it too low because the guage actually doesn’t work properly.
I feel so bad! Hope everything worked out :S
Hahaha, been there, and it freaked me out too! Living in the country I have a long ways to go to get to a gas station!!
I’ve learned my lesson with this. I make sure that my tank is full whenever I go out 🙂
We try to gas up when we think its needed but there has been times when the light flashes and then we get to the gas station I have ran out of gas its a frusterating experience.
I do that a lot not by choice most of the time just low on cash a lot and i guess it’s life when your a parent of more then one child and trying to make ends meet
I hate when that happens! i do it more often trying to get to the cheaper gas station
