Day 208.

Flashback to 2004. Sit down in Hilary's Honda Civic and you might have a plastic bottle here or there around your ankles, maybe an old church bulletin and a few gum wrappers. It wasn't immaculate, but it wasn't chaos either. Just comfortably lived in...afterall, I was a commuter.

Fast forward to today. Sit down in Hilary's Buick Rendezvous and you better have worn your old dirty sneakers. Who knows what your feet are crunching and squishing on today. There might not be any plastic bottles any longer (no, just five stainless steel BPA free ones yet to be washed). But, there is so much more.

Remember my trip to Colorado...say...two months ago? I still hadn't cleaned out my car from that trip. (Here's where I stare at the floor and don't see any of your shameful eye rolls) It's true - but I just never could bring myself to do it. And so it got worse, and worse, and worse, until today.

I am grateful to have cleaned out my car.

Seriously, I was losing things in there to the point of no return. When I took everything out of there in various sorted bags and brought it into our condo building lobby, I was mortified - how did it even all fit inside my car?!?! I found some 5-lb. weights I didn't even know I owned. Nothing too gross actually, considering we'd been on a 17 hour trip with various snacks in the car.

Now, it's waiting to get vaccummed...
Honey? Are you out there? Promise...I'll be grateful for you tomorrow...

  1. Update: Jason did not vaccumm my car today. But, he accomplished so much around the house and with grad school midterms looming...he gets a free pass. Plus, I found out there's a place with free vaccumms down near gymnastics, so it only makes sense to wait until tomorrow.
