I have a horrible habit - which involves leaving everything in my car (well, not my children! they come with me). But I find that I get the mail ,and the junk mail stays in the car. The kids have a snack, and the container/wrapper (and crumbs) stay in the car.
I grew up with a father that drove a messy car, and my brother and I both swore that our cars would be clean when we had our own.......well, we both lied. We both generally have horribly messy cars.
Today, that changed.
My oldest is home sick, and the youngest is at Grandma's. So, once I completed the work I needed to get done, we set out with a garbage bag and vacuum. I had Julien empty everything out of the backseat onto the laneway, and I worked on the front.
We then filled the garbage bag with all the garbage and the rest of the toys/books/shoes and socks made their way into the garage.....then I got the vacuum ready and I am now proud to say that I have a pretty clean car!
I can't say how long it will stay that way - but I am really happy about it for now at least!
