I'm in an almost unreasonably good mood, in spite of the fact that my day started off fairly crappy. I was trying to get J out the door, and I was packing his things as I went. I grabbed a few of his trains to put in his suitcase, and stuck them in my pocket to get them out the door. I checked my pockets as I was herding J out the door - I felt a lump there and thought, "Oh, good, I have my keys." I got J out, turned on the security system, locked the door and pulled it shut behind me. I got him settled in his seat with his Pop-Tart, and started divesting myself of all the stuff I was carrying - coffee, CD I burned last night (good road trip music for tomorrow), leftover Halloween candy to share with co-workers, trains, etc. As I got hands free, I patted one pocket - there's my phone, like it is every morning. Patted the other pocket - hmm, nothing there. Did I put my keys in my seat? Noooo. Hmm. Did I put them on the floor by J's seat? Noooo. Hmm. And then it dawned on me that I'd LEFT MY KEYS IN THE HOUSE. Behind the locked door. With no spare where I could get to it. I called K, since he still has a key (this is one big advantage to getting along well with your ex!), and thankfully he wasn't so far away that he couldn't turn around and come let me in. So I was late, but I don't care - tomorrow is Saturday, and I have a date!
