Everyone thinks their family is weird. I felt my family was weirder than most :-D The other day we had a lot of snow and it reminded me of when I was a kid, my parents would layer newspaper down in the front door area for us to take our snow covered boots off. They also layered down newspaper in the van so the carpet wouldn't get wet and dirty. I can't recall anyone else's family doing this at the time.
My dad's van has proper mats for the front seat, but he still layers newspapers down. Thankfully my parents don't do this around the front door as they have mats.
Was my family just an anomaly or does this sound familiar to anyone else?
