Last week the company that does our pest control called and asked if they could come today. I said, "Sure."
Yesterday James told me he had a two hour early release today. I thought, "No problem." I forgot the pest control people would be coming 1/2 hour after I was supposed to pick up James.
In an unusual move on my part, I left my cell phone off. Normally I have it on, but it wasn't charged and I didn't take the time to plug it into the car charger.
To top it all off, I nearly missed picking James up and when I went running out the door I didn't check to see if the front door was locked.
Well, the pest control person came to the door, found it unlocked, figured I had done so on purpose (some people who work outside the home do so) and came in and started to spray.
Then the alarm went off.
Because my phone was off, I couldn't be reached. The cops showed up to find the pest control person scared out of her wits in her truck. They got hold of Don who came to the house and cleared everything up. He is NOT happy with me.
So I am going to go sit in a corner for a while...
