In the car.

The car has become... an article of dress without which we feel uncertain, unclad, and incomplete.

It's the story of my life. I had so many good ideas for this challenge (A few of which involved the backseat - hee.), but neither the time nor resources to execute them. Here's how it goes:

1.) Leave five minutes early from work (and speed down the highway) in the hope that I can get home in time to take advantage of what's left of the golden hour of sunset.

2.) Make necessary stop at Target. Had awesome plan to have fish sticks for dinner (Lauren has been wanting to try them), but forgot that the nearest Target did not have a frozen food section. Now I have no plan for dinner, and it's already almost 5 p.m.

3.) Finish shopping, race to my parents house to pick up Lauren.

4.) Arrive home. Let Daisy out, and run inside to get camera (Sorry, Marcus - you have to wait just a couple more minutes...) and preheat oven for the meatloaf that I just decided to make.

5.) Spend ten minutes snapping photos while Lauren and Daisy play outside. Lauren eventually asks, "Mom, when are you going to put the car away?"

6.) Settle for what few photos I could manage, run inside to get Marcus out of his crate before his bladder bursts.

7.) Take Marcus outside. Go back inside house, and, without removing coat or boots, prepare meatloaf.

8.) Round-up child and dogs, then finally remove coat and boots. Start preparing the remainder of dinner (parmesan couscous and peas).

Both the meatloaf and the photos turned out satifactory, so I guess we can call this challenge a success.
