Thinking about calling a locksmith...

It’s shaping into one of those weeks. Back at work yesterday I either was coming down with the flu or I had food poisoning. It wasn’t pretty.

I stayed home sick today, but instead of the rest I was supposed to be getting, I spent two hours helping the boy look for a set of keys this afternoon. We have not found them. He swears he left them on the counter, but I am worried that he left them in the front door when he came back from getting something out of the truck.

Now I am too paranoid to go back to napping.

It’s only Tuesday. Fuck.

Just close your eyes and it will all go away...

We've been without a front door lock for 3 days. Hubby finally fixed it today. Talk about stress.

Oh no, I hope you find your keys and get your nap!

Aw! Are locksmiths expensive? (Sorry to be ignorant. It's one of those things you just don't know until you have to, you know?) Just decide if it's worth the peace of mind or not. Though of course it's quite likely he misplaced them someplace safe.

Boys and keys? I don't even want to think how much money we have invested in those. The boys, too.

Hope you feel better.

sherri said...

Sprite's Keeper said...

Oh, feel better soon and just lock the deadbolt. And make son pay for the new lock he'll install on the front door..

Smart Mouth Broad said...

OH man, I hope you feel better and find the keys.

Call a locksmith. If it makes you feel better, I had a sewer line break today and flood my garage with shit. Yep, my garage was floating in shit.

The week (which is our spring break) is off to a STELLAR START!

Fuck, right back atcha!! : )

Wow, this sounds just like a chapter from my sorry life. Only it was a female teen. Who lost the ONLY set of keys for my car. And had NO idea where she left them. For three days. See? It could be worse. You're welcome.

Loved the pictures on the last post - what a view! I have severe hike envy.

Columbia Lily said...

I'm sorry, that sucks big time. =( Hope you feel better soon.

D'Arcy said...

Yeah, the way my mind works, if I don't find them by tomorrow I'd probably have the locks changed too,

I really hope you feel better!!

only a movie said...

Ack. I hope you feel better soon, Pseudo.

My boy no longer has his own key because he loses it so often.

I would change the lock for peace of mind. Also so you can go back to sleep.

:-( Hang in there.

Could you surgically attach a key to his body? That way you should be able to shake off your flu...

starrlife said...

Me too! Scratchy throat, queasy... yecch.. Hope you feel better and safer soon! The keys will probably turn up.

Tricia said...

Blahh. I hope you feel better soon and that by the time you get to Friday you're smiling and feeling healthy.

flurrious said...

If you do end up getting a locksmith, can you make your son pay for it? Because I would think the only good thing about living with a teen is when you can make them stomp around and say, "you are so UNFAIR!"

Hope you feel better today.

Jan said...

Oh, you poor thing.

Call the locksmith if it will give you peace of mind. Of course, you know the minute you have brand new locks on every door, you'll find the keys.

Kelly Deneen said...

Yeah, take a nap and start the day over. Hope the keys turn up!

Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning!

Beth said...

Wow! You guys should get the locks changed pronto. And get some rest. You sound like you need it.

Hope you feel better!

Heather said...

Boys are really good at loosing things....and totally suck at finding them!!! And then when WE find it for them they are all like,"Oh, I forgot I put them there!!!"

Brenda Jean said...

Don't you hate it when the week starts out like this? It makes me want to crawl back into bed and just stay there the entire week. I hope the rest of your week is better:)
