I Have A Question


I am finally back and ready to tell the tales of our grand adventures!! And it starts with a question...several actually. My first is how is it that my mind is so weak...like Dory according to a quiz I took...most of the time and yet in the wee hours of the night it seems abundant with good ideas and "oh I need to's" Well the night before we left was no exception to that rule!

After a long and exhausting day of preparing for our journey, I climbed upstairs around 11:30PM; knowing full well I would be getting up at 4AM. Once upstairs, I did my usual routine which begins with checking on each of my babies. Kristin was asleep. She was so excited, I thought she would never get there. Ryan was passed out from the moment I put him to bed. Last and certainly not least was Emily. I went to open her door and it was locked! My first question is WHY? Second question is "why is there a lock on that door in the first place??" It was the office of our landlords so it does make some sense I guess. But of all nights for it to be locked...why this one!? How am I going to get in there? She's not exactly the easiest person to wake up. I didn't want to bother Rich with this, as I figured he would lose even more sleep over it. So I tried to fix it myself.

First, I needed to see what I was doing so I would need to turn on the hall light. Brilliant me decides to close Ryan's door so as not to disturb him. This of course, wakes him up and he freaks out. I had to sit with him for a bit and he fell back asleep. I found some Allen Wrenches in the hall cupboard and tried to jimmy the lock that way. It sure would be easier if I could see. I try to close Ryan's door again. Ryan freaks out again. I tell him I am going to bed and that I would see him in the morning. "No!" he cried "You have to come here!" I knew this was going no where fast, I was tired. I decided to give up on the door and just pray she would wake up in the morning. I took Ryan by the hand and started leading him to my room. "Where are you taking me?" He was very confused. I got him settled in the middle of the bed, and began my short and restless few hours of sleep....

To Be Continued....

I have a question. Why was the door locked? I have seen that door. How did we miss the lock? Oh, that is two questions. Is that the Dory thing? What happened next? Sorry, that is four.
