I should just go back to bed

You know you should just go back to bed when you day starts off like mine did.

It was my morning for carpool, so up I got, threw clothes on (minus a bra because I had a monster winter coat on and who could really tell the difference?). I got Kylie dressed, fed and out the door in time to pick up the rest of the kids on my route. Dropped everyone off safe and sound at school and headed back home.

That's when it dawned on me that I still had a couple activity reminders to take around and tape on some doors, so I thought, I'm out, might as well get that done this morning.

Did I tell you this was a bad story? Well, here is where it turns bad... I got out at the 2nd to last house and shut the door to the van, keeping it running (I was only going to be out for a second, right?), and as it was shutting I looked, tried to grab the door before I shut my LOCKED door.

CRAPOLA! Not a good thing. Hubby lost his key to the van over a year ago and I only have 1 now. I have tried to get it duplicated at the local hardware store, but it apparently has a special chip in it so you have to go to the dealership or a locksmith to have a new one made which is going to cost more than my children's education to make. Crapola! Yes, I said it again, because I have been meaning to do it, just stop on by the dealership and have another one made but I haven't done it and now I had to pay for that choice...literally. What in the world?

Luckily I had my cell phone and I called information for the number to a LOCAL locksmith. Ummm, retards connected me to a locksmith in Salt Lake (35 minutes away) and I didn't know it, so I had to pay extra for the dork to come down and I had to wait even longer. 15 minutes was not 15 minutes. It was an hour and 5 minutes. I had to pay $179 for a dork that was supposed to be there in 15 minutes to open my door in under 5 minutes. I am PISSED! First he tried this little tool-
but alas, it did not work as quickly as the foreign dude had hoped, so he moved on to a super cool tool, which I would like to invest in just because I thought it was awesome!

It's called and air wedge- just sounds cool, doesn't it? It looks like a way awesome bloodpressure cuff. Only, it's for your car... didn't know your car needed it's pressure taken, did ya!?!?!

And this is it in action.

This is not a tutorial on how to steal cars. Just thought I'd share my retarded morning with y'all and let you know I learned something new.
