Winter was rough. On us ... and especially on our vehicles. My poor Eddie the Edge.
Every time I pulled things out of my car – kids…groceries…MYSELF! – I would wipe off the grimy winter from my car onto my jacket. The winter gunk would make its way into Eddie too … one snowy day I accidentally kicked up the brown, slushy muck accumulating under the car into the side door pocket –yuuuuuk!!
The worst --- the muddy footprints my 3yr old would make on the back of the passenger seat…midwinter I just gave up and let him use the back of the passenger seat as his canvas.
I hated touching my car – there was winter filth everywhere.
For years I've always wanted to get Eddie the Edge detailed; I did it for the very first time this week...
I was a car detailing virgin. Now, I'm a changed woman.
Impressive Auto Details in Kingston handled my Eddie with such care.
I could actually see my reflection in the rims – beautiful … (and a tad scary – good thing I had floss….)
Impressive Auto Details restored Eddie's pearly white paint.
In fact, the next day, a colleague asked me if I got a new car:
Me: Nope, Eddie is 3 years old.
Shocked Friend: Really? Looks like you just got it off the lot! (Peeking at the baby car seats in the back)
…you have KIDS and keep it THIS clean?! I'm IMPRESSED!
Me: Guess that's why they're IMPRESSIVE Auto Details.
Cheesy, I know. But a real conversation.
I love how there is no more grit in the cup holders. There's no more "mystery liquid" on the console. And you'd never know my son used the back of the passenger seat to wipe his muddy foot art.
Not only does Eddie look a thousand times better, but the detailing made ME feel better. I've noticed I've been a lot more careful driving Eddie. I want to take care of my car and keep him clean and safe …
This caring about my car actually makes me a lot more cautious on the road – something everyone is thankful for.
Thank you, Impressive Auto Details in Kingston, for spring cleaning Eddie the Edge, and making me feel good on the road, too!
I don't know why I never did this before – I will be back!

While driving Piper to dance class the other day she looked at me with a sheepish smile and said "Can we rock out on the way home?" I was happily shocked, and I had to ask where she'd learned the fine of rocking out, the story was perfect.
Apparently during her recent stay at her grandparent's house, while Erika and I were in vacation in the Virgin Islands, she was in grandpa Dave's car when the old Guns & Roses song Paradise City came on and he seized the chance to show her the greatness of loud music and the delirium of sensory overload that it can produce!
She was inspired!
Remember, if you can, the very first time that someone did you the honor of teaching you to rock out… or basically lose yourself in a song (or 5). Take a moment to honor those people who introduced you to the warm feel of confusion brought on by rocking out, for they have given you the gift of musical appreciation that many others don't, and may never will have.
Piper has learned it at 5!
I turned on the radio and the first sound we heard was the Eric Church's Drink In My Hand.
As a broad & devilish smile spread across her face she looked at me in the rearview mirror and said the coolest (and most fitting) thing that she could've, as if she were reading from An Introduction to Being a Young Rocker's script:
"Could you turn this up… real loud?"
My reply: "Of course I can sweetheart… Let's ROCK!"
Boy, I wish it was socially acceptable to walk around with a tissue crammed up a nostril...gotta be better than a drippy one.
I gave up. On-air between breaks this morning, I had a tissue jammed up my nose ....hey, it's hard to type and edit if you have to constantly stop to wipe snot! Thankfully Eric is rather whimsical... kinda like a 5 yr old that just learned how to make fart noises... he giggled everytime he looked over at me. Glad I could entertain!
