Man, I missed this kid! I kept her home from school yesterday because they didn't get home until 11pm; there was no way I was going to attempt to send her to school the next morning.
So we spent some qualitity time together, and I learned a valuable lesson: when your daughter suggests that before you can do anything else, you must go outside to crack open the geode she brought home from the desert, it is important to make sure the lock on the door knob? The one you never, ever lock? Did not in fact somehow get locked. Because if you don't, you may GET LOCKED OUT OF YOUR HOUSE IN YOUR PAJAMAS AT 8:30 IN THE MORNING before you've even had your coffee and you'll have to wait an hour and a half for the lock-smith (the one who said he'd be there in 20 minutes) to show up, shivering on the front porch while your daughter who has spent the last week basking in the Arizona sun complains bitterly about how cold it is, praying to a god you don't believe in that those nasty black clouds don't mean snow, trying to talk your dog into opening the front door. And you'll look like a crazy person.
