Just how dirty is YOUR truck/car/main horsey vehicle?
Today, hubby and I have the day off, and our two spawn headed off to fall camp (two days of fun, which mean two days fewer of them trying to kill each other and/or destroy the house). Stunned at the rare kidless day, hubby and I decided to take our 2010 Tundra in for a very thorough cleaning. We sat and enjoyed conversation and sushi while the truck got de-Goldfished and de-horsehair and stall-mudded. Okay, so that sentence didn't flow as I had hoped, but you follow.
Our poor truck is gorgeous on the outside--it is still pretty young, after all. But inside? Oof. It isn't cleaned regularly because the car seats have to come out, and that isn't easily done. So, it accumulates. Smooshed crackers, about a dozen Matchbox cars tucked in various places (what are they, breeding??), horse hair, dried mud, bits of hay, a fine layer of dust over everything...you get the picture. So did the guy who signed us in when we brought the truck over. I told him to do the most for this truck that they could, apologetically explaining I had two sons. When he opened the door, he actually said, "Wow." I then added, yes...two sons and two horses. "Oh, two horses--now I get it," he said.
It is now clean. I shall set the timer to see how long it lasts. Since we took the car seats out and I threw their liners in the wash, we're using hubby's Volvo for now. Mm-wah-ha-ha.
But I have to ask, timidly--is this pretty much par for the barnowner (well, in this case, barn leaser) course?
How dirty is your main barn vehicle?
(When I first got a horse, back before we leased the barn and 100% self care and long before children, I could keep my Honda Civic pristine while the trunk collected everything. Now...notsomuch.)
