Visit- being a idiot

I just had a flying visit from Pete and Kathy. What fun! It's always so good to see my kids. I was so glad to have them here that I forgot I had visiting teachers coming and went off gadding with Pete and Kathy. Well about 3 hours later I got a call from my next door neighbor, (who was in Utah for Conference) wanting to know if I was alright, and then 30 minutes later I got a call from my visiting teacher wondering if I was alright. Boy, it's sure nice to know that people care enough to check up on me! I get so wound up in my own world and I think nobody worries about me except my family, so it's nice to know that the Ward is looking out for me. Makes me feel safer.
Speaking of feeling safer, I did the dumbest thing today--locked myself out of the house. Went out to get my newspaper and shut the door, without knowing the doorknow lock was turned, and imagine my surprise when I couldn't get back in! And no one else has a key to my house, because of the new doors, I just haven't given a key to anyone. My neighbor (Bishop) managed to get one of my windows open, finally, and I got back in. Needless to say, I gave him a key to my house before he left so this couldn't happen again. Man oh man, I sure felt like a fool! I went out without my cell phone, so I couldn't even call a lock smith. IDIOT!!!

If you would give us one, Anthony could have come right over to open the door. At least the bishop got a window open, but that makes me worry about your windows safety.

That had to be super frustrating! I would have gone next door and asked for a sandwich and just waited for one of my kids who has a key.

Oh that is the worst!! Well at least you solved the problem so in the future you can get back in.

You weren't naked, were you? I've seen that on movies a million times...so embarrassing! And I've often suspected you of being a nudist. So, it makes sense.

I got locked in my car once. I got in went to start the car and you guessed it, the keys are on the ground outside. I waited 40 minutes for someone to finally come and rescue me. In the end I felt pretty stupid. For some reason I didn't even think of trying my cell phone.
