Yesterday I locked myself out of the house. I went out to get the mail IN MY PAJAMAS, and when i came back i couldn't get back in; my door was locked. it turned out i had inadvertently turned the lock on the door knob when i left. the weather was great, so i really can't complain; but i'm going to anyway. i sat in the backyard for a while, and realized that there was an old man a couple houses down watering his flowers/bushes/whatever plants. for a LONG time. i was waiting for him to go around the corner so i could do some pilates. but i didn't really want to do it while he was watching. so i start, and then he comes back around, and starts hosing off his car. not washing it, mind you. just hosing it off. just when i thought he must be done, he gets out his big garbage can (the one you take the trash to the street in) and (you got it) starts hosing that down too. weird. i wanted to ask him if i realized we lived in a desert. seemed like a major waste of water.
besides, i was locked out of my house; what else did i have to do but make snap judgments about my neighbors? that's right nothing. i didn't bring my keys (obviously) or my cell phone w/me to get the mail. if i had my cell phone i would've called my husband and made him come home and let me in -- but i couldn't even go to a neighbor's house and ask to use the phone, b/c i don't know my husband's work number! so i sat. i figured my landlord (lives upstairs) would come home before my husband, and i was right. all in all, it was somewhere between 1 and 2 hours. of course, i didn't have my watch either, so i don't really know.
remember valentine's day? yes, a month ago. i just put the pictures on the computer. here's us at our dinner:
you can't see it very well, but i got a stain on my new white shirt that night; D'oh! it came out though. this place (where we ate) was one of those teppanyaki restaurants, and we had such a fun time that night.
in other news, today marks the first wearing of sandals and capris of the year!! hooray for unseasonably warm weather!!

Oh! about the guy w/ the hose- I know! I know! (pick me!) he's cleaning!!! When you are retired, sometimes you don't have much to do, at least that is what I am supposing..
Sounds like you survived your adventure in good spirits.
