1. When buying a house, make sure when you take possession that you have a key for every door.
2. Don't hurry. When you hurry, you can forget some things causing you to waste time making more than one trip to do one task.
How I learned these lessons, all in one days events.
Today was a crazy day at work. Not only do I deal with the normal everyday stuff that goes on, but today, I had to deal with my heathen children! About 3:45 this afternoon, Madison calls me and says, "Mom, Parker locked me out!" I was very busy, several customers were waiting on their prescriptions. I tell her I'll call you right back, I have people waiting on me, I'm sorry, stay where you are I'll deal with this in a minute!. I know, I know, I shouldn't put my kids after work, but when you have all these people standing around, you have to deal with them or else. So after the crowd clears, I head straight to the house to deal with the next pressing issue, MY CHILDREN!! When I drive up I see that there are several sodas on the porch but no children. I look around and spot that there bikes are at the village. I proceed to the front door, and sure enough the screen door is locked. I go the the door in the garage next, yep you got it, it's locked too! So, I go back to the car to retrieve the keys, assuming I have a key for the doors. You know what the old saying is about assumption, guess what? I don't have a key for either of the doors. I look around the garage for any tool to break in to my own house. Nothing. I can't find anything. And thanks to Dave, I have no credit cards to break in. At this point, I must stop and ask the Lord and my neighbors to forgive me, because I did do a little yelling. I am so mad at this point. I have now wasted twenty minutes trying to break into my own house. I want to scream, well maybe I did. When Grammie arrives to the house, I get a card from her. She had an insurance card, at least it is good for something. Finally, I was able to break in and get back to work. As I hurried out of the pharmacy, Chris asked me to stop buy the Co-op while I was out. I head right over to get the horse feed. I am on a mission. I get there and realize that in my hurry, I left my purse at the Pharmacy. I can't even pay for the feed. I am so mad and embarrassed at this point. I go back to work and decide to try the Co-op again later.
