Ok so yesterday I got locked out of the house with the kids inside! I went out to start the car through the door leading to the garage. I still don't know what possessed me to do this. It wasn't that cold of a day. I only warmed the car up on the coldest of cold days in the winter, but for whatever reason I did it. Then I saw that Bob hadn't put the garbage out so I had to quickly put that out. I went to go back in and it was locked! Now I still do not know if the kids happened to have turned the lock (they were right there at the door waiting for me) or if the POS doorknob we have on the door got stuck. Either way I was locked out. Luckily, I am a "genius" and had a spare key in the garage and was able to get in without any problem. I was so ready to bust the door in though.
So my public service announcement of the day is to make sure you keep a spare key somewhere outside.
