I'm happy when life presents me with an opportunity to laugh. Take today. I was helping my son find some small plastic part of a toy in my car when I realize how dirty it is inside. OK, sure, with kids, goldfish and pretzels will find there way everywhere, but still, vacuuming every now and then is a good thing.
So I haul out the small hand vacuum and give my car the once over. Ten minutes later, I'm done. It's not perfect, but it looks presentable.
Fast forward an hour later. I head to daycare to pick up my daughter. Strap her in the car seat, and head home. Minutes later I hear her kick off her shoes, and hear the sand coming out of each one, right onto my nice clean carpets.
