My house is messy, but my car looks like a crazy person lives in it. Why does this surprise me? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you are transporting kids, dogs, neighbors, neighbors’ kids, sports equipment etc, then things are gonna get dirrrr~tay.
lego pieces, books, bits of food…is that a pair of underwear?
The bigger question is why the hell does it bother me so much? I tried to change my dirty ways.
I made declarations!
I put my foot down!
But nothing changed. That’s when I realized I’m going about this all wrong!
Cue positive spin:
Food keeps mouths and hands busy and off of others. Legos and other toys keep their brains engaged so I don’t have to hear, “How much longer, Mommy?” Time is limited and I already wash 3 kids and 2 dogs. You can see where I’m going with this can’t you?
Ridin’ Dirty is the key to happiness!
Maybe you are thinking, give me a break. How hard is it to get to the car wash? Or bring a hand vacuum out to the car? It’s hard, damnit! You might be one of those people who also gets their nails done every week. Oh, I want to be like you! I wish I could be perfectly manicured, hair coiffed (do people still get coiffed?), car washed every Saturday. But I’m not. I’m the other guy. The one that looks like this:
So I am going to stop stressing about it. I will embrace my mess and call it enlightenment!
Life is messy! Time is short and I want to have coffee with friends instead of coffee at the car wash! When I look down and see that lego figure lying on top of a few crumbled goldfish, I’m going to have a new perspective…..I’m totally down with ridin’ dirty. Now I just need to work on a spin for not doing laundry! 😉
“They see me rollin’, They hatin’,
Patrolling~ they tryin to catch me ridin’ dirty,
Tryin to catch me ridin’ dirty,
Tryin to catch me ridin’ dirty!”
Can you embrace the mess?
Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and
design. Wonderful choice of colors!
Thank you! 🙂
