Yesterday was yet another shining example of how awesome our townhome is built. Since we moved in, the face plate for the door knob has bent whenever someone's shirt, bag or anything else got caught on it. Up until recently, it wasn't a big deal. We just bent it back and went on our way. Starting this week, the door started getting stuck on the face plate and it was extremely difficult to open. This is background leading up to the events of yesterday.
I left work early to take Miles in for his 4 month check up and immunizations. I waited for an hour before getting in for his shots. We were both tired and ornery. Anyway, he got his shots, screamed horrifically, and then fell asleep. I took him home, carried him inside and then went to get the mail. As I went to open the door, however, it would not open. I started to get nervous because my baby was inside all alone and I couldn't get to him. Remembering various action movies of yesteryear, I flung my body into the door several times before I was finally able to get inside. Unfortunately, I ended up breaking the door frame and the door knob. Yipee, another home improvement project. At least the baby and Scooter slept through the entire incident.
