Tinted Windows

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!

That is so funny Rachel, I was just thinking yesterday about the constant chaos my house is in and I thought, you know, we should really start posting pics of those things. I think that would all make us feel better. You can describe PIT, but then we wonder, "can it really be as bad as mine?"
I just want you to know, I feel your pain :) And if my eyes were to wander around your van I would just think, phew, it's not just me!

Hey Rachel! I took pictures of Grandma and Grandpa this weekend at the park and I put some up of them their really good!! I took a lot of them smiling and looking at the camera but for my assignment she didnt want that so I'll put them up in a few days so you can see pictures of them! The ones up there now are supposed to be an "unplanned" event but mine was kind of planned :) but oh well they still look really good. It's so cute to see Grandma and Grandpa holding hands and stuff :)
