I thought I would do a quick post before I head out today. Yesterday was a terrible day. It started off with breakfast and our server forgetting part of our order. Then the kid wanted to go the neighbor kid's house. The rule is that he is not allowed to go into any one's back yard. He has to stay up front where he is visible (yes, I am a protective mother). Anyway, he went into the kid's back yard for about 20 minutes to play around with the water hose. When he came back up front, he noticed someone had stolen his brand new bike. Argh! I was one unhappy mother! If the kid had just listened, he would not have left his bike unattended. I was furious. Not only was his bike gone, but he was soaking wet and had his brand new phone in his pocket! Fortunately, the phone was okay and did not receive any water damage.
We filed a police report, but we know the bike is long gone by now. The kid is grounded indefinitely for not listening to his mother. Yeah, I am a mean momma.
Well, after that whole situation, we were headed out to get something to eat. We all hopped in the car and I changed my mind about what I was wearing. I got out, went in to the house to change, came back out and realized I did not have my keys. Josh left his in the house as well. So, while we waited for 30 minutes for a locksmith to come, we were eaten alive by mosquitoes. I thought we were the ones who were suppose to be dining out? We tried to get into our house by ourselves, but we proudly had to admit, it was closed up tight. This kind of gave me a sense of relief.
After paying the nice couple $80 for 90 seconds of work, we got our keys and decided to go out to eat anyway. We had already lost over $300 that day, and felt we deserved it.
