The fancy new rental car

"Look, Mom, cup the back seat! And my buttons make all the windows go up and down! And this car smells just like Uncle Ed's!"

Not for long, kid. Not for long.

Ackk! I must confess that this photo makes me want to run for the hills - or push a portable vacuum into the hands on the nearest child!

You've just made my morning a little bit brighter as I giggle my way through it!

"not for long, kid!" funny,funny, funny.

I had the coolest sports car rental while alone in Tennessee last spring. Felt just like Andrew: "OOOH, look at THIS!"

But I had no one to share the discoveries with...however, I did keep my goldfish off the floor ; )

Too funny....who's got clean-up duty?

And, how'd the job interview go?

Amy said...

Hee Hee!! It still looks better than my car.

I had a nice rental car in 2001 and for just a moment, thought about not turning it in. It was SO nice!

But hey, my car is nicest of all. It's paid for! :-)

That's a tiny little mess. Although I try to keep up with the van, sometimes I think the apple cores compost before we get to them. Oh well, these days will pass in the blink of an eye.
Thanks for the giggle this morning.

Isn't it funny how those CUP HOLDERS are so important to a child. When my grandsons moved up from car seats to booster seats we got them boosters with cup holders that 'fold out' from the side. They were so impressed. Always had their cups in the holders. they boys are big enough that they do not require a booster any more. I passed the booster seats on to a day care child a few months ago. Thanks for the trip down memory lane and a good giggle. Roxie

Hay caramba!!

Well...... it wasnt so bad, nothing that a Portable vacuum cant clean, right?

Funny! My kids are obsessed with the cup holders too! It is comforting to see and know that their are plenty of other moms out there with car interiors that look like mine. I recently found your blog and am really enjoying it. You are inspiring!

Lol. Isnt that the way it goes!!

Oh if my car weren't 20 times worse, this wouldn't be so amusing! Thanks for the laugh, and hopefully you don't get too spoiled in the rental.

Are the children feeling better? Is your husband still excited about the job after the interview? Did your stamina hold out long enough yesterday to get the rental cleaned up? What's the latest word on the car situation? Gee, do we live vicariously through you or what!!!

I pretty much crashed yesterday afternoon.

I was up at 1 am with the sick kids, making car rental reservations online, etc.

Then we ALL had to go with my husband to his interview (!!!) me with the kids in the order to get the rental car.

After that we did the pediatrician, where they tested for strep and flu, 'cause it's been recurring here this spring. Nope, just ear infection!

Of course both fevers broke later that day, so I could have saved myself that trip. But if I hadn't taken them in, I would have sat at home, carless, worrying to death : )

The interview went as well as could be hoped, but there are several worthy candidates. Still waiting to hear.

I almost don't want him to get this job because we will almost have to pick up and move across the county.

New adventures!
