Wednesday...This is actually what happened on Wednesday. Went to Ruthie's kindergarten program. She got out early. Went to get a treat with my girl. Got the boys. No Webelos. We all went to piano lessons. Went to get new summer shoes for the kids. Sam threw his old boots away! Told the kids that if they were great and awesome, I would get them a treat. They were great and awesome and chose 7-11. Went into 7-11. Picked treats. Mostly. Sam was still choosing. Gave car keys to Isaac so he and Ruthie could get in the car and wait. Sam brought his treat to me. Isaac AND Ruthie came back into the store. Ruthie said she locked the car. With the keys inside.
Sam said a prayer asking Heavenly Father to help us choose the right thing to do. We discussed breaking a window. Walking home...No keys, remember? Can't get into the house. No phone, can't call anyone.
Wait!! We're at 7-11.
Went into the store and got a phone book. Called the only listing for a locksmith who will save in the city. 7-11 phone doesn't have a dial tone. The really nice gal let me use her cell. This is how he answered the phone..."Are you locked out? This is Steve." I said "hi Steve, yes I'm locked out. Can you help me?!" He said he'd be there in an hour. We waited outside and watched for a white Caddilac. We ate our treats. Got a Slurpee. Threw rocks. Collected rocks. Talked to one of the 7-11 gals. Used the bathroom. Then our piano teacher drove up! She saw us. Wanted to help. But then Steve got there!
He unlocked the door. I payed him. We went home!
I ordered Pizza for dinner. I felt we deserved it.
Friend and freezer fixer, Lance, came over to analyze why the freezer doesn't work. Blockage. 10 year warranty. Happy dance. Parts ordered.
