Oooops! Should Have Kept the Door Closed!
June 18, 2017 7:25am CST
Yesterday after our trip to the flea market we went into town to meet my grandson. He just turned 12 and I was bringing his gifts to him. He is not hard to please and I am thankful for that. I bought him a pair of dress shoes that he will need for his elementary school graduation, and a casual shirt. He was delighted with both. The shoes fit, which was a worry for me because you never really know if they will fit unless you try them on. Little Miss was in the back seat of the car and my grandson opened the back door and kept her amused. She loved playing with her cousin. We must have visited for almost an hour. Had to keep our visit outside, which is another story for another day. Not thinking about the fact that the door was open and the interior light was on the entire time. Ugh. Yup, as luck would have it, I started the car up and the battery was dead. Called my husband, no answer. Called my brother, no answer. Panic set in. Thankfully one of my former DIL's friends showed up and had jumper cables. The juiced up the battery and it started. I let it run for about 10 minutes and shut if off to see if it would start back up and thankfully it did. Moral of the story, never leave the door open and the light on.

@TiarasOceanView I would have to get my older daughter to come over and then drive her home. That isn't an easy thing when you have a clingy child at night. I will have to discuss it with Hubby when he gets home.
