Everything but the kitchen sink!

Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer has been hosting a "What's in your car?" carnival of sorts last week. This began as her dear husband cleaned out her car and gave her a list of everthing that was in it. He thought she might want to post it. Now, friends, that's what I call a husband that understands his blogger wife.

So, when I saw her list, I emailed it my man to show him, that in fact, I am not the only one with this affliction. Then, she decided that we all ought to show the world, well, the internet world, anyways, what is in our cars.

My man got strangely excited about the prospect of showing everyone how awful my car is. He's a car guy and actually cares what the inside of a car looks like. So, to compare, his excitement might compare to me showing someone how awful the cake was that he made for my 30th birthday. I wish I had a picture to show. It tasted fine, but since he can't seem to just follow the directions on the box and mix it on medium speed for 2 minutes, it had the huge dome right in the middle.

By his account Friday morning (he cleaned it out Thursday night) there was barely enough room carved out of each seat for myself and each of the kids. There certainly wasn't room for him in my car.

As if there should be...


SO, without further ado....

He didn't make a list, but I'll see if I can look at the pictures and give you some commentery.
