Daily Dose of Awesome highlights the awesome little things that don't make headlines (but should).
Not Awesome: Last Tuesday morning I locked myself out of the house. Still in my pajamas. With no phone. No wallet. Covered in dust and cleaning products.
It's a long story to explain how the lockout happened.
The short version is: Blame. The. Cat.
|Sure, she looks cute and innocent...|
Awesome: The kindness of neighbors.
One of my neighbors is often home during the day. (Oh, the joys of retirement!) He's the de-facto neighborhood watchman. He was the first person to greet Hubby and I when we moved into the neighborhood, and he's the first person all the neighbors call when there's an emergency.
Pajama-clad and all, I went and knocked on my neighbor's door.
He welcomed me in, let me wash the grime and dust off, and handed me his phone so I could make the long-distance call to Hubby's cell.
Then my neighbor turned his computer on so I could send an SOS message to Hubby at work. (In this day and age email gets a response FAR faster than voicemail.) Once we knew help was on the way, my neighbor offered me a place to rest (read: not locked outside in my pajamas) while I waited.
|The keys... which were inside the house when the latch clicked closed behind me.|
