So I totally forgot to tell you my little adventure the other day. It was all in the name of keeping my peeps up-to-date. Well first, let me say we have some new locks on the door. This new lock has a "feature" that leaves the door knob locked even after you unlock it with the key. I've been very good about checking the knob before I leave the house.
Anyhoo.. early one morning the PG&E trucks came into the neighborhood and sent workers to all the houses to inform us of a 2 hour power outage we'd soon be having. You know, having before I had showered. And more importantly before I'd used my hair dryer!! 15 minute warning. Anyway, I got my hair done in time, thank goodness!
the culprit, a leaky transformer!
So I felt I should document the scene. Packed my phone in one pocket and the camera in the other and went out to check it out. I checked the door and it was locked. As I unlocked and pulled it behind me, my little inner dialogue said "gee, it would not be cool to get locked out." Then I went about my merry way taking photos.
I walked around, watered my pots, pulled a couple of weeds, FOUND OUT I WAS LOCKED OUT! First time ever! EVER !!
Yeah. I know. Thank goodness I had my phone on me. Bret was already almost to work so no making him turn back to let me in. I just couldn't believe I'd locked the sliders at that time of the morning, since usually they're all open for the fresh air. Anyway, I called my mom and like a mom, she came to my rescue! While I waited I sat on my swing and read some good blogs on my phone. And laughed at myself.
