The Cargo of Life (With Kids)

This is actually fairly clean -- absence of wrappers is an anomaly.

I have kids. Two of them. They do stuff. And they need to be driven around for various activities. To get this mission accomplished I am fortunate to have the finest motor vehicle ever created, a 2001 Nissan Maxima.

Does the car become sort of a purse for LSS?
To say the car is messy is to miss the point. It has a patina of life that is uniquely ours (it only smells a little). I have sport racks on top and a Yakima box. I took both kids home from the hospital in this car, so there is sentimental value.

School backpacks and escrima sticks.

Today LSS drove the kids to school in a Nissan Box as the Maxima is being repaired. The absence of our "patina" and loads of stuff, as well as a late-model car,  felt odd indeed, sort of like a vacation.

Here's hoping there is a decisive election victory by the end of the day!
