I have decided I need deep, dark, tinted windows on my van. First and foremost I can't tell you how many accidents I have almost been in as a result of seeing a police officer while talking on my cell phone! For those of you who don't live in WA it is a traffic violation to drive while talking on an actual cell phone...that only stops me when I see a police officer however...thus causing me to shout at who ever I am talking to...or drop my phone in my lap and try to do something ridiculous with my hands to make it look as if I was not holding the phone. Secondly, I always have people I only sort of know come up to me while I am living in my van waiting for one of the kids to come or go from school. I am constantly in a panic that they are going to somehow see the absolute PIT that exists next to and behind the drivers seat. Sometimes while I'm talking I can see peoples eyes moving around taking in the surroundings. I hope it's just a quick little gander at the two little cuties who live in the car seats behind me and not a gander at the 2 week old PB and J that has been mashed into the carpet of the van by 50 different little feet...Did I mention that whenever I see someone headed my way I quickly throw stuff in the back, or hurry and get the wet ones and wipe off the dash to get yesterdays spilled coffee cleaned up....Aggg....I'm actually not a slob just a busy mom who needs tinted windows!
