Today we had to hook up the tent trailer to take it to the canvas place – so they can uninstall the canvas tent, pack it up, and mail it to the manufacturer in Minnesota. It\’s hot and it just makes it seem even hotter when you just want to get out of the heat and cool off, but this had to be done. They were expecting it.
Finally, we are ready to go – and then we walk out the front door, and just as we start down the walkway he announces that he locked the keys in the house.
We started to laugh – too funny. So we went through to the backyard. There is a side window to the hall bathroom. Fortunately, the husband is trim enough to fit through but the last time he did this was 2 years ago when we got locked out, we were both in our pajamas! He was having all kinds of trouble trying to get in without hurting himself. The window is over the tub. 2 years ago, he placed a smaller ladder inside the tub, that just happened to be on the patio and then climbed onto that – this time, the smaller ladder is in the house. He would have either fallen face-first or as he went in feet first, he was scratching his backside. It was an accident waiting to happen.
I texted my daughter-in-law and my son, who was working. I know they have a key. But it is 10:45 am and Navy doesn\’t get off work till 4:30. It\’s supposed to be 108 today.
He sat down and we laughed – what else could we do?
Until all of a sudden, I remembered I had just put my house key on my new car FOB and I had that in my purse which I had on me. Duh! Silly me.
Yea!!! We spent about 45 minutes fumbling around when I had a key all along. Well, he never asked. He just assumed since we were driving the van, I wouldn\’t have the car key.
Texted the kids – that we were in. They were relieved.
Soon they are not going to let us out of the house for our own safety.
Time for our nap!
