I have taken obsession paired with distraction paired with my own version of sad and crazy to glorious levels.
Since I have gotten my jeep back home I haven’t driven anything else even though we have another car sitting in the driveway. I love my jeep / it is a deep kind of love! Really!
So the 4Runner had been sitting in the driveway collecting dust and it needs cleaning like you wouldn’t believe!
The only reason I drove it was because we have been cursed with warm, constant rain and I don’t mind getting a little wet (insert dirty thoughts), Aidan really doesn’t like the open jeep when it is raining hard – and I totally get it!
So we have been saying for weeks that we need to get the 4Runner washed and today – finally – I had time. Now you have to understand I had already taken it through one if those washes that don’t use brushes or cloth / just high powered spray and it did nothing – that is how dirty the car is…
So in my mind I am thinking / clean the car, clean the car…clean the….squirrel…
And I walked outside and it wasn’t raining and I actually saw the sun so I jumped in the jeep and took off.
I finally had some extra time so I thought / hey I’ll go get the car washed so I drove to the car wash, paid for the service, pulled up and rolled up my window and then I looked behind me to make sure the back windows were up…
And THAT is when I realized I was seconds away from taking my topless jeep into a car wash.
They had to back everyone behind me up and let me out of a side entrance.
I was so focused on getting the 4Runner clean that it hadn’t connected in my mind that I wasn’t in the 4Runner.
So if you are having a bad day – there you go – think of me and say to yourself – at least I didn’t pull a Myla.
My son does call me butter brain for a reason (along with butter fingers and butter feet – cause I’m clumsy).
