Pooooor Tom.....

This is a few days late, but I thought I would still post it...it is quite the story.

So, my grandparents were with us for a whole week, and we did lots of touristy things (you can read that in the next post), but this one day we went up to Fort Louis and Marigot. Tom volunteered to watch Ella so I jumped at that chance!!

We left around 11:30ish to drive up to Marigot...the rest of the story if from Tom's point of view...

"Well, about five minutes after you guys left, I hear the door open and Ella running down the hall! So I run outside to get her, go around the corner and *SLAM* the door shut!! (info: our door automatically locks from the inside if it shuts) and I didn't have the keys, since I just BARELY ran out!

So I go down to the guard and say, "hey - I locked myself out". He tells me to go up to the office and see if they have a key. So I go up to the office...no key. They called Anthony, (info: complex manager, has an office in Maho.) and Anthony says he is with a client, but he'll be here in a few minutes to let me in. So I wait...

and wait...

and wait...

I get a little impatient and walk up to the office....it is locked and no one is inside! So I wait....

and wait...

FINALLY, I give up waiting and decide to WALK to Maho (info: its about a mile walk into town and a mile back). I think that maybe Anthony will be driving down the street at the same time, seeing as it has been FOREVER since he said he would come down.

So I walk...

and walk...

and walk...

He wasn't driving down the street. I made it all the way to Maho. I'm hot and sweaty AND have been carrying Ella the whole walk! So I go into his little office...he isn't there, but there is a lady working there (info: new lady??) She says, "Oh, Anthony isn't here...let me call him." She proceeds to call him and says to me, "oh! anthony is SOO sorry! He forgot!!"

*insert swear words here*

So the lady gives me the key and I walk

and walk....

and walk...

and sweat...

and walk...

BACK to our apartment. Ugh...what a day. So not only did I get locked out of the apartment...have to walk into Maho...carry Ella the whole way...deal with her being FUSSY at the same time...I ALSO MISSED THE BYU BASKETBALL GAME!!!!!"

:( This whole post gets one big frowny face!

What a day...

Kyle is getting so big so fast, its kind of scary sometimes but i love watching him grow.
Are you coming to the states for your friends wedding? or just in August?

Total bummer! I'm impressed that Tom took the initiative to walk over though. I would have just waited forever and ever.

sad day! And even sadder that he missed the game because of it. :(
