I ended up cancelling having the locksmith come out today. After work i went and bought a new ignition switch and lock cylinder since the key would not turn forward to release from the switch. Anyways, I replaced those parts and she started right up. I also was able to get both passenger windows up along with the rear driver side window but had no luck with my driver's window. Found some cracks in the insulation on the wiring at the door hinge so I'll tackle that at another date or evening with it being so freaking hot outside. Thanks for everyone's help.
