Idiot

It would appear that the Perfect Nightie and I emptied too much of my brain into that notebook last night.
I locked myself out of the house today.
Chris is out of town and left me his keys and I've been trading out keys with Denise, who is watching the kiddos part of the week while I work. So, I walked out of the house, mindful that I needed to have Chris' key ring in hand because I had given Denise my house key. And I really thought I did have Chris' key ring. Only after I got back home with groceries (read: highly melty popsicles) did I realize that I had the wrong key ring.

I'll pause here until you all are finished snickering.

I could make this a long story. You know I could. Turning nothings into long stories is kind of my specialty. But I don't feel like it. Just know that I ended up with both of my brothers at my house in the dark, after picking up the two possible extra keys in my family's junk drawers. Neither key worked. We had to break in - flashlights, putty knives and all. It's a good thing my middle brother is a little bit of a shifty character.

I broke into my own house.

Or, rather, my brothers broke into my house for me.

My children are sleeping at my mom's and I am feeling a little sorry for myself, all alone in my house. Hrmph. So, now that you all know my shame, I will wallow around in it until I decide to go to bed. But I will try to count my blessings first.

Get another glass of wine - put on the nightie - and relax!!!! We've all done that....

Oops.

I've done very similar stunts and boy do I hate it when that imperfect part of me gets so dramatically exposed. I hope you slept well and the morning brought forgiveness and expectation of better things.

I think most of us have done that same thing, so don't feel toooo bad. I know it's not fun as it's happening though and you don't feel so smart. Glad you had the guys to help you out!

I've got no stones to throw. I once locked my keys in my car in the middle of an intersection in downtown Nashville after I rear-ended a guy while a cop was writing me a ticket. It happens to everybody. And thankfully you have to brothers who could rescue you. So sorry it made for a rough night. I hope you feel better today.

Oh Amy! That's terrible! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that does that sort of thing...

Becky Nelson said...

yep, I've done that. Shut the door at the car wash with the keys inside. The station attendant had a wire coat hanger because it was in a state where one would actually wear a coat. BTW does Andrew want to come over for a bug review at the "Nelson Museum?"

Hey Becky! Glad you finally dropped a line :) That sounds like fun...my nerdy husband thinks so too!
