Never a dull moment
at our house, thats for sure. This morning at 7 a.m. there was a knock at the door and a very large teenage boy was asking if he could come into my house and call himself a cab. Because Chris was in the shower, the kids were having breakfast and I had NO CLUE who this kid was I asked him to wait outside and I locked the door behind me. Talked to my dh in the shower and he told me to send him across the street to the corner store - they'd let him use the phone there. He was gone when I got back and so I called the landlord just to tell him what had occurred. The landlord went to find him and when he would not leave the building he called the police. Turns out the kid had just recently gotten out of jail, hadn't checked in with his parole officer and was carrying a gun. He had hoped someone would let him into their apartment and then he could rob them so that he could go home to Slave Lake.(at least that's the story he gave the cops) The police came to my door so that I could identify him before they took him away and asked me a few questions. The kids thought it was pretty exciting having the police come to the door to interview their mom! Not the way I wanted to start my morning tho. How are you all doing today?!?!
