I'm not a big wig enough to have my open closed door office, but if I did, that's 4 keys. What else you got making it a big tangle?
-car key (which is really a fob so it's bulky)
-house key
-mailbox key
-fob that lets me in my building (home)
-2 office keys (one to the main office space, one to my actual office)

I've tried different combinations but since I can't be trusted to remember to GRAB what I need, I have a detachable keychain and the house key, mailbox key, and building fob are on one side and everything else is on the other. Since I walk to a lot of places from home, I don't need to be dragging around my car key fob or office keys all the time.

Mine qualifies as a big tangle:

-3 keys to my apt (vestibule, front/back door, basement)
-2 keys for in-law's (vestibule, front door) but I still have an old key of their's on my ring. Too lazy to remove it, I guess.
-2 keys to my mother's house
-1 key for my dad's house
-1 key + remote for car

I have them all on a lanyard which helps me find them in the bottom of my commuter bag.

I also carry my office and desk key in my wallet.

Me too! I also have a little square dangly thing (very little) with a Jag logo on it but that's it. I HATE big ass dangly tangly key rings.
And if they are too heavy, they can damage your ignition/starter.

Yep, I've heard this. My car has a push-button ignition, but still. And because the fob charger is lower in the car than the ignition, long dangly keys would touch my knee as I drove and that would bug me.

J and I watched Wreck-It Ralph last night. I think that movie is more for people our age than it is for kids. Very fun.

Has anyone seen the interview between Mila Kunis and the English guy (kid)? She is ADORABLE! The guy is very nervous, and she basically takes him off script and just talks to him for a bit. There is a short video about it on the front page of CNN.com . If I were to switch teams, she would be my first, second and third choices.

I just got something that will get the tinfoil hat-wearers in here riled up. The American Comunity Survey from the US Dept. of Commerce. They are quite the inquisitive little bunch.

Weekend plans:

Tonight: Try and make up for the epic bad night we had last night. I'll let the kids pick their favorite food type and we'll get it delivered.

Sat: Swimming lessons in the AM, errands in the PM. Matilda reminded me that Lulu really wanted to see Wreck-It Ralph, so perhaps we'll watch it in the evening.

Sun: I hope the FIL can take the girls to both sunday school and church; I could use a kid-free hour or two with Dickie. Then depending on the weather, we may go to the Botanic Gardens. Nunu said last weekend that she missed them and wished they were open in the winter. She was very pleased to hear that they were.

I don't blame you from backing away from Hope Solo. She turned out to be a hot mess... literally.

But we dont know the moment the decision was made. When the door is opening? Sure thats a snap decision, but how about when he parks his cruiser. Now he makes that decision, and he has the time while turning off the motor, getting out of the car, meeting with the other cops (who never fired a shot) deciding which door to pound on.... Clearly time to reconsider or at least reign in your emotions.

Keys? I have about 5 different sets, but only two for daily use.
first set:
1 truck key & door lock fob
1 house key
1 Dodge Ram keyring
1 mystery key (think for old office)

Second set
1 car key
1 trunk key
1 house key
keychain is a little knife

Unless I am driving I take the 2nd set, not nearly as bulky.

He is at Northwestern in a concert teh beginning of April taht mixes his genre of music with (I think) classical. Squishy- it was on that email/brochure I posted that included Asphat Orchestra. Tickets are real inexpensive- like $24

Keys.

My car key is on a separate ring with the electronic door unlocker

House ring
house key
mom's house key
locker key
bathroom key from an office I worked in maybe 10 years ago
about 3 others that I don't remember but keep so there are enough on the ring to find in my purse.

Office has all electronic key pads and biometric ID entry system( aka the security guard downstairs recognizes my face)
