Locked Out!

December 2nd, 2016 at 03:12 pm

Yesterday I ran downstairs to get packages that were delivered (I'm so afraid they'll be stolen -- it's happened before!) I left my condo door unlocked but forgot all about the door to the stairway. It closed behind me and I didn't have my keys. Well, I stood in the vestibule for a while, hoping someone would come through. They didn't. I walked outside to the back door, hoping it might be unlatched, but it was shut tight. When my patience wore out, I sucked up my pride and went to my son's house. No one was home, but one of their neighbors, who I know, was just going in, and she offered to text my DIL and let me stay in her place till a solution was found.

My DIL was at music lessons with my grandsons and couldn't get away, but she texted her mother, who came and let me in the condo, so I could get the extra keys to my place. Whew! I was so sorry to inconvenience these nice people, but really glad I could get back inside.

I was reminded that I really need a set of keys for my son's building!

My spending yesterday -- $1.50 for laundry, $2 for parking, $11 for lunch, $15 for gas. Today I spent $2 on a scone.

I just got my $190 payment for election day service and deposited it in my E-fund.

Got two savings certificates in the mail today -- $10 for DSW (with no spending requirement) and $5 at Hallmark ($10 spending requirement). I would go shopping and use these this weekend, but I might be too busy -- I am getting my dishwasher installed, and I have a birthday dinner to make: Beef ribs, smashed potatoes, green beans and pineapple upside down cake.

I do not know whether the dishwasher will be delivered in the morning or afternoon. Hmmm. I just looked at the order information on the Home Depot site and it says the order is being processed! It hasn't even been shipped! I'm bummed. I wanted so much to have it available after the birthday dinner on Sunday! I will call them in the morning.
