Jumping Through Windows

What a morning.  I've been up since 7 am, had to take the man to the train because he still hasn't got his car back yet. 

And so next on the list was taking care of the grill situation.  For those of you who don't know we finally got a new grill, courtesy of my parents.  Nothing crazy, just a simple grill for bbq'ing on those hot days so the kitchen stays cool.  (our old grill went up in a ball of fire about a month ago)   So we found a very inexpensive char-broil model at Walmart.

Well upon putting together the grill. (which I did mostly myself)  We realized there was a problem with a key component.  So I spent this morning calling the manufacturer and Walmart to find out how to get the piece we need.  Well anything dealing with automated company phone systems seems to take forever to get to an actual person.  And by then you feel completely frazzled. haha

After finding out I could drive back to the store to pick up the piece I just felt frustrated because it means trecking across the city and lots of traffic for at least 30 mins to get to the store.  Upon learning that, I decided I needed to go outside to try to relax amongst the beautiful flowers that are all starting to come into bloom.

As I was walking out the door the wind blew it shut, and I knew right at that moment I was locked out.  Normally we  have to adjust the lock before we go out so that the door stays open, knowing I had not done that....well my first thought was "oh no'.

Luckily I had all the windows open, so it just required finding a tool to pry open one of the screens with.  And luckily there is a small auto body place near by, for whom I know the owner pretty well.  I explained the situation and that I needed a flat head screw driver. 

Well being the old school type he is, the owner said he would help.  So he came over, popped the screen for me, and I was able to climb through the window.  And he was nice enough to help me get the rather large screen back on the window. 

Whew....I don't know what I would have done had the windows not been open. 

What a day, and it's only just begun.  ; )


The window.
