PMT. Hijack at will.

I had to call AAA this morning. My kids locked my keys in the car.

I'm so peeved. I'm sitting here waiting on the AAA locksmith, who will be an HOUR!

We'd gotten ready early this morning, so we went outside to play for a few minutes before we headed off to school. I had to pee, so I left the kids playing with chalk in the driveway. For abou 1.5 minutes. And as I'm just finishing, I hear my car beep. Once. And the only reason my car beeps once is when the remote lock is activated. Sure enough. I go outside and Calllahan (my 2.5yo) had opened the car door, hit the lock button, and shut the door. ARGHHH! My purse with my keys are inside. My extra set of keys, that is carried in the deep pocket of my purse, is inside. Dh's car (he's outta town) is also locked.

So, here we are. Its 7:45 now. Savannah is due at school at 8:15 and the locksmith isn't scheduled to be here until 8:30. I had a chiropractic appot at 8. Guess I'll miss that. And I have a regular doc appt at 8:30 (I *might* make that). GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Thank goodness we have AAA though. At least I won't have to PAY the locksmith.

Hollie, who sent both kids to their rooms until the locksmith shows up.

Ugh! It is so frustrating when something like that happens. I hope the rest of your day improves!

I had a rough time with DS2 this morning. Boy, he knows how to push my buttons. I can almost understand how some parents can "lose it" on their kids and use physical punishment. I often have to walk away and calm down with DS2 because he really, really knows how to get to me. There are times it when I scare myself for wanting to physically let loose on him.

But then I think of my cousin, whose 9 yo DS is temporarily confined to a wheelchair due to complications from Crohn's disease, that I realize that what I'm dealing with isn't anywhere near what she's dealing with. And I thank God my kids are healthy and happy and are able to push my buttons. :-) Say a prayer for my cousin's DS. When I think of what she's going through with him, this debate just doesn't make any sense anymore.

Well, I've certainly rambled, haven't I???

Tee hee hee! God Bless the fact that I've got OnStar on my suburban......... twice I've had to call the number and have them zap it open for me because I've been in a parking lot somewhere and left the keys in the car. At home, it's happened at least 10 times, but we've got two extra sets in the house, LOL. It's something with kids! ONe time, I gave the baby my keys to play with in the car while I got the mail, etc, and ds#1 closed his door and yep, he pushed lock........ and then the honking button, and I had to run in the house and get another set........grrr. But usually, it's just me being a ditz and leaving them on the seat when I am getting one of the kids unbuckled! I try to remember not to push "lock" until we're away from the car these days...... I used to just push it, then get the kids out........ and then do a "d'oh" when I bump the door shut with my butt and see the keys in on the seat!

I locked my keys in my car when I'd had it for 1 week.. all 3 sets of keys were sitting on the front seat. (We had just moved, so I hadn't "unpacked" them yet!) The car came with roadside assistance so a locksmith came out to jimmy it open for me... at least now I know that a theif won't be able to break into it.. he had to go back to his shop and get a special tool, and then it still took him an hour and a half to get it open! (He eventually had to use a long thin wire and hit the unlock button on the door!)

WAYYY OFF TOPIC...Lauren I may be able to help your friend. My husband suffers from Crohn's disease. If you would like to chat about the doctor he sees, I would be happy to do so. I know that I am new here. I just can TOTALLY relate to your friend's situation. My father, my aunt, and my husband have Crohn's. It is HORRIBLE. My husband has a doctor here in NC that is considered to be one of the BEST doctors in the world for Crohn's. My husband has never had to have surgery, and now is steroid free because of his doctor. Yet 2 weeks before we got married his doctor said DH had one of the worst attacks he had seen in a long time. If you would like to chat about this let me know. I will post my email addy for you.
