Day 16: Today was lovely. After Justin woke up from his nap, I fed him lunch, packed up the stroller, and took my children on a walk. We went to the bank to get quarters, swung by Dunkin Donuts to get the kids a donut and mama an iced coffee, and went to the library. When we arrived home, I could not unlock our apartment door. It would not unlock. I double and triple checked to make sure I was using the right key, but still the key would not go in the whole way. I was starting to panic that someone had changed our locks (though I don't know why that would have been the case). I took a final look at my key. Somehow it became bent.
I called Drew and explained the situation. Drew said he'd come home early, but asked if he could finish his current tutoring section. I replied, "Sure, but I'm going to the restaurant with the double arch." Drew, "That sounds like a great idea." Charis and Justin got happy meals, and I got the southwest salad. I'm thankful for McDonalds. We were able to stay warm, enjoy each other's company, and use the facilities.
