Trying To Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

I was determined to get my "to do list" finished by the time I had to pick Landen up from preschool today. (It's much easier running errands with him in school) So I had 20 minutes left of "Landen free time" then I had to go pick up the lil guy. I got everything done on my list except one thing, get the car washed. I have made a vow to myself that I would keep my new car clean. My old car was always full of crumbs and fingerprints and God knows what else. I didn't have time to go to the car wash so I went to one of those coin do it yourself car washes. LOL...I have never done one of those before. What a joke. Me in heels and a skirt trying to wash the car without slipping and racing against the clock (and screaming babies). (It was a good laugh for the kids)...and everyone else watching.
Being that my car is black, it is full of smears now.. hey at least I tried right?
My husband will be washing it tonight:)

you are so funny! i can't believe that you really WERE wearing heels!!! my husband and i tried one of these once (together). it was a total disaster! we were like, "what's happening now? soap is coming out already? we haven't finished wetting/rinsing off the car yet! etc. etc. etc." it was wild - we never did it again! nope. i happily give up $10 every two weeks (or three...) to wash our car (since i can't get the top anyway!). what i've found is the best way to do it, though, is to have everything set up on a saturday morning (or whenever, since i home school, too!), and head out to the driveway and have the kids help me wash the car. they love it, the vehicle gets decently cleaned, and i don't look like a crazy person in front of bewildered/laughing onlookers at the do it yourself carwash!

but there's no better way to vacuum a car out than to turbo vacuum your car at the shell station for a mere dollar!!! those things suck up everything!
