the keys debacle
so, derek and i have a system when we drive home at night. when we get to our complex he pulls into the parking lot in front of the main building and goes to check the mail using my keys so that we don't have to turn off the car. he asked me for my keys and i was frantically searching for them in all the pockets in my bag, but came to the conclusion that one of the kids probably took them out of my bag and didn't put them back. emmy has a real fascination with taking stuff out of the pockets of my bag. so, using my husband's cell phone, i called my mother in law, whose house i had been at, but she didn't answer. then i called my sister in law who is visiting and told her that i had lost my keys because probably one of my kids had taken them out. she asked me to describe them, so i did. she said they would see if they could find them. then my mother in law buzzed in. while i switched over to her derek looks at the keys in the ignition and says "um, ruth, these are your keys." then my mother in law asks what i needed. i tell her that i'm an idiot and to please tell crystal to stop looking for my keys. my mil laughed at me and we hung up. it was really funny. derek especially liked how i was looking in every pocket in the diaper bag desparately trying to find what wasn't lost.
