I thought exercise was good for the brain......

So I decided this week to start an exercise routine. I wasn't going to tell anyone because I am not a good follow through person. I wanted to do this for myself and when I was done, then tell people that I did it. I know, I'm weird, but we all have our idiosyncrasies.
So, yesterday was my 2nd day to do my little program. I didn't really want to go, but knew I had to do it and needed to get it done. I came home from being out and locked myself into the house while I changed clothes and got ready to go. Once ready, I grabbed my water bottle, iPod, and sunglasses and headed out the door. My routine takes about 30 minutes and then I was back home.
I was so tired and ready to just be home but when I went to open the door, it was locked. No problem, I thought to myself, this is why we keep a key hidden in the garage. Went to the secret key spot but no key.....oh yeah, I used it the other day and still have it in my purse. Went around the house and tried every other door just to find that they too were all locked! Okay, now what? The house was locked, my truck was locked, and I had no cell phone on me!
When Jason started traveling a lot for work we gave Stephie a key for both the house and my truck just in case I needed an extra set she would always have one. So, I went to my neighbors house (who was thankfully home) and asked him to drive me to Stephie's school so I could get some keys.
Got to the middle school, found Stephie, asked for the keys but guess what? Stephie just changed out purses and when she changed out purses, she left her keys in the other purse! So, NO KEYS! I started envisioning a mega bill from a lock smith because I didn't know what else to do.
While I was in the school, Chris (my neighbor) called his wife to tell her what was going on. She said, I think we have a key to their house. I was like, "No, I've never given you a key to my house" But Tammy was insistent that they had one and since I had NONE, it was worth it to go check it out.
Chris got the key and brought me back home and guess what? They did have a key for our house! YAY! Chris made sure to take the key right back home so I didn't lock that one in the house too! Thanks neighbor!
Thankfully there was a week this summer where Stephie stayed at the neighbors house while we were in Greenville. I faintly remember giving them a key so that if Stephie needed anything they would have a key too. Then when we got back, I told her to just hold on to it! I am so glad she did!
Today Stephie made sure to put her keys in her purse, I got the extra key back in the garage hiding spot and the neighbors have my key back down at their house! I should be covered now! All of this just so I could go exercise, which I thought they said helped with your brain power!?
