I'm still here...but just don't get around to posting overly often ("Oh really? I hadn't noticed!" Yeah, yeah....rub it in ;) ).
Anyway, I have something to post about this evening, so if I post it NOW, it'll get done :)
So...today Mum and Daddy went to town, it was kinda an out and about trip, so they were figuring on probably being gone an hour or so. Mum said she would lock me in the house, but I said no, I could get it, since I walked out with her. So I walked on out to "see them off" so to speak, I waved as they drove off and turned around to go back inside...That Moment...a shocker...THE DOOR IS LOCKED!!!!!!!!!
They weren't too far down the road yet, so I lit out beside the road waving my arms like a maniac and hollering "WAIT!!!!" (Although I don't know if I was actually hollering all that loud or not...they couldn't have heard me either way. But it sounds good in writing :) ) They slowed down....oh, they saw me, good...no...that was only a fleeting hope, they were only slowing down to make the turn! What am I going to do now!! I hastily darted towards the barn: "Please LORD, don't let the door be locked!!" Thankfully it wasn't. Upon entering G-ma and G-pa's cozy apartment, I (now panting and out of breath) asked if I could borrow G-ma's phone, and briefly explained the situation. G-ma doesn't currently have a key to the big house...she did, but it got lost somehow (I didn't loose it though!! Even with my history of loosing house keys. It was lost before that anyhow). So having called them I got Mum's assurance that they'd come back right away and let me in. Whew!!!
And they did...came home, gave me the key, and let me unlock the door, return the key, and made sure I was securely INSIDE before they drove off again!
I guess that Mum had thrown the lock on the handle reckoning to lock me in....but I unsuspectingly shut the door behind me when I followed her out! So that is how I came to be locked out of the house...for a second time....but I couldn't even get in the garage this time!!
Ahhhh...it was good to have That Moment of panic over with!!
See ya later gator (or gators as it may be ;) ), I'm off to vaccume!
