I know you've missed the drama

I was sleeping so soundly. Joey had already had his morning bottle and was back to sleep. I was back to sleep for another usually blissful hour when the phone rang. I looked at the clock. I wasn't expecting a call for another hour or so. St. Joseph's Church? Huh?

It went to the machine and I heard Steve's voice so I picked up. His car has a flat tire. He has no spare because he used it and never had the other tire fixed so he's stranded five miles from home, going to be late to work, needs me to come get him.

Grumble, grumble, grumble. I got out of bed, threw on some clothes, bundled Joey up and put him in the car. Came inside to get Andy up, change his diaper and put him in the car when I remembered that I haven't been able to find my car keys since we came home from PA earlier in the week. I have no idea where they are.

I looked in the cabinet where we hang our keys. Not there. I looked through all the stuff on the kitchen table. Not there. I thought maybe Steve had left his copy of my car key laying around since he knows mine are lost.

Nope.

So he's stranded but so am I.

So I called our friend, Rui. He doesn't go to work until later in the day. I was surprised that I didn't wake him up. He's going to go try to find Steve.

I'm mad. I'm looking for my keys. I want to go back to bed. Argh.

You're getting a bunch of replies from me because I'm just NOW reading back this far! :)

That day sounds sucky girl!!! Did you ever find your keys? Tell Steve to put a spare in his car from now on AND get some AAA! :) Even as good of a mechanic as Brent is, he insists on us having AAA at all times (I used to lock my keys in a lot before I had a fob that locked the doors automatically!) :)

Steve found my keys over the weekend in one of his shoes. Blasted toddler! He has AAA, I don't know why he didn't call them.

Whaaat?? What's the point of having and paying for AAA if you don't call them! Man, I'd bitch if it were me and I had to get up, get kids dressed and all that and the man had AAA! :)

You know? I never asked why he didn't call them. I guess he figured I could get there faster. I'll have to find out when he gets home tonight.
