Ah Woubbie, you always crack me up!
My Wednesday morning started with a failure in my garage door. It would not open. I also could not open it manually. Called work and found out there were only a couple people there, and then I called repair companies. A nice dude named Kevin told me he could be here in an hour and then had me walk out to the garage with the phone... Some describing of Garage Door Parts later I noticed the big gap in one of the springs (that I previously had not even realized was a spring), and thus the diagnosis: broken spring. And Leslie is temporarily trapped in her house!
Kevin is now here making big noises and replacing both springs and I using this delightful and unplanned free time (free being debatable as the door will cost about $325 plus tax) to catch up on emails. And as I am exempt from overtime laws, I am not losing out on leave or wages! :) I'll be at work before lunch and will be working like a maniac again!
I slept really good last night but woke up to a weird noise that I attributed to wind and downspouts, but now I know it was the sound of a big-a$$ spring breaking apart! I just can't have a boring day...
