Doctor Jones...

I went to pick up Lyon from pre-school today. Before Fenix and I left our house we made sure to lock up. All doors and windows secured we headed out.
On our front door we have a "hotel lock" chain installed. Not so much to keep people out as to keep little toddlers in. We don't usually leave with it locked, but I didn't think about it as we left through our garage.
I got Lyon, ran a few errands, and then returned home.
My truck doesn't have a garage door opener so when we pulled up on our driveway I decided to just park there and go in through the front door. Arms laden with coats, bags, keys, and phones I made getting to the front door as difficult as possible. Struggled to get the handle and dead bolt unlocked only to have the door jerk to a hard stop when it'd opened two inches. The hotel lock held firm.
Arms still laden with their burden I back tracked to the garage door and typed in the code. The door opened a foot before jerking to an abrupt hault. What the heck!
I put in the code again and again, but that door wasn't going anywhere. I groaned, it is freaking cold outside today, lol! So I did the only thing that there was left to do.
I handed my phones off to Lyon and rolled through the gap under the garage door in pseudo Indiana jones fashion. It was a lot harder than I thought it'd be. Had that door been in the process of shutting I don't think I would have made it before getting squished, lol! But I managed, I got back up and was able to open the garage all the way so Lyon and Fenix could walk on in. they would have none of that. So I closed the door leaving a two foot gap so they could roll in just like me :D
