The end of the work day yesterday was pretty stressful; unfortunately, it spilled over into today. I had to be at the office super early and was running a tad behind. I parked my car, opened the door while locking it and slammed it behind me. As I turned to watch the car door slam, I realized for that gut-wrenching split second that the keys were still in the ignition and the car was running. Oh goodness gracious—I left the car there with the thought that I would deal with it after I got finished with the more pressing task that had brought me in early in the first place. It took much longer than I had anticipated, but finally, it was out of the way. I sighed with frustration as I realized it was only 8 AM and I still had another hurdle before me—my running, locked car. I called Tyler: he was on his way to a class that had a deadline for a project he was turning in. I called my mom: she was about to leave for work. She talked to my dad: he was also just leaving for work. Somehow they still had a spare key for my car at their house and my dad ran it out to me saving the day. The rest of today was equally stressful: Tyler got pulled over coming home from his class. At the end of the day we counted our blessings: I locked my keys in my car at work instead of at home making it possible to get done what I needed to, and Tyler got off with a warning—thankfully—he is still on probation from his accident last year. Nonetheless, we are definitely welcoming the weekend.
