I’ve got a story from the archives for you today. Do you ever go to those self service car washes? The last time I went it was pretty traumatic. I’m sure the scene looked like something out of a cartoon. I felt like I was in an episode of Punked. I was waiting for Ashton to jump out at any moment.
John is usually the one who washes the cars. Speaking of cars Jensen Dealerships have you covered. Anyway, mine was in need of a bath so I figured I’d take it upon myself. Logan and I pulled into one of those do it yourself places. I let Logan out because it was hot and I knew he’d throw a fit if he was stuck in the car. We put our money in and it was go time.
I started working at the speed of light. I had no idea how much time I had and was trying to hurry. I got it all rinsed and then switched to the foaming brush. The foam starts coming and I’m scrubbing the car. The green foam keeps coming and coming. There is green foam everywhere. Now remember I’m running around the car like a mad woman while dragging my 2 yr old with me.
At this point everything is green and it’s time to rinse. My heart was racing and I could feel the sweat running down my back. I’m trying to get all the foam off before the timer runs out. Mission accomplished! We load back into the car and off we go to pick up Nathan from school. I’m patting myself on the back that one, I washed the car! Two, I did it before the timer ran out. And three, all this happened while tugging along Logan. I’m feeling pretty good.
We go in and I happen to glance at my arm and notice a huge green spot. It wasn’t tender so it wasn’t a bruise. Hmm, weird. I then look down at Logan and he has green hair. Oh no! The green foam. Then I see its all over my legs, my socks, and shoes. Talk about embarrassing. I have to stand there in all my green glory waiting for Nathan’s class to be dismissed. I have never ran out of his school faster in my life.
Moral of the story is there is a STOP button for a reason. You simply switch the dial over and the foam will stop. Also, there is a timer that tells you how much time you have left. If you need more time you simply add another quarter. And your toddler will probably be much happier watching from the comfort of his car seat than being accosted by the green foam. Green skin should be reserved for the Hulk and the Hulk only.
I really want to write with no topic in mind. I need to get my creative juices flowing. Lately I’ve been so caught up in HOW AM I GOING TO GROW MY BLOG, that I’ve lost touch with what I really love. And that’s writing. I have always loved to write. I am much better on paper than I am at expressing any other way. I’m also a visual person. I like to see things.
I need to become more organized. I have a planner and a large desk calendar. I use them but I need to use them better. I need to manage my time better. I feel like some days I go around and around in circles. I think better planning my days would help with this. I’m going to start planning my weeks out. That way I’m not scrambling every day trying to get my sh*t together.
I love lists. I need to make more of them. Especially lists that pertain to this here blog. I have so many things I want to look into and research. It is overwhelming me. I think breaking it down into lists and setting a time limit could really help. I need to set time limits because I can get so engrossed in a topic that I forget everything else. It’s that visual thing again. My brain thrives on information.
I also need to put a house schedule together. My kryptonite is laundry. Ug, I absolutely despise it. I need to start doing it every day. As much as that sucks it will be the only way I can keep up. I usually end up only doing it like once or twice a week. Then I have piles and piles. The piles take over my life. Make them stop!
So now that I’ve wrote a post full of word vomit I now have a list of what I need to work on. Thanks for bearing with me while I just wrote what was on my mind. If you made it to the end you deserve a cookie. The wilds ask for cookies every waking second. I can’t blame them. Cookies are pretty freaking good. Send me samoas!
I have something special for all you Central Virginians out there! I have two Color Me Rad entries to give away! The race is May 17th and it’s taking place at King’s Dominion.
I did this run last year with the wilds. We had a blast. It is fun for all ages and all fitness levels. We walked the whole course and just enjoyed all the color stations. The wilds had so much fun getting blasted with color. I feel like we were all blowing color out of our noses for weeks!
Just use Rafflecopter below to enter. This giveaway will end Sunday, March 9th at midnight and I’ll notify the winner on Monday!
