So tomorrow I am picking up my new car and whether I felt like it or not (I didn't) I had no choice but to tackle item #28 on my 30 in 365 list
. Yup, I cleaned out the trunk of my car.
I know what some of you might be thinking..."what's the big deal? You cleaned your car....I mean get over yourself." Well SOME OF YOU might not realize that I am a hoarder on wheels and the epicenter of chaos just so happens to be in the trunk.
Let's just take a look, shall we?
I spy a barbeque from when we went camping IN 2010, 2 blankets (?), my winter coat, a radio and a chalkboard.
Once I got all the big stuff out, there was a layer of random crap covering the entire surface of the trunk. I couldn't stop to take a picture of each item because it would've taken me 4 hours to get through it instead of 2....BUT I did grab some shots of my favorite bizarre trunk-dwelling possessions...
FIRST UP: Steven King's IT. I was unaware of the fact that I owned this movie and now that I know it's been driving around with me everywhere I went for the last 4 years, I'm more than a little weirded out.
MMM pretzels! This is another artifact from my one and only camping experience....2 1/2 years ago. Gross, I know.
The remnants of my "Scuba Steve" costume circa Halloween 2010...
Finally found my TWILIGHT dvd. One of 8 total DVD's discovered in the trunk.
My FIT student ID! Yes, my middle name is Frances, WHAT OF IT? That's my Grandma's name and I wear it with honor so STEP OFF!
The beautiful blonde toddler in this picture turned 7 yesterday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LENNON!
The "keepers" pile.
So I won't get weird or anything, but I'm actually really sad to be trading this car in. It was my first real "grown up" purchase 4 years ago, sparked by a spider-induced fender bender. So much has happened in the past 4 years - my sister got married and had 2 amazing kiddos, 2 of my brothers got engaged, so many people around me have moved up, moved out etc. etc. I can't wait to see what the next 4 years has in store. I will be experiencing it all behind the wheel of LIME GREEN VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE. get it.
Here are a few final shots I took for myself. Thanks little white Elantra! It's been fun. :wipes tears: I'm not really crying. Okay maybe a little.
