Going Nowhere

broken lift spring

Yesterday, the garage spring broke, leaving us stuck in our home because we couldn’t get it open. The property manager couldn’t get a repairman out until (we hope) this morning. We didn’t even have access to the stroller, which is in back of the CRV. No clearance to get to it.

With a busy girl who wants to do lots of things, I felt a little bit of cabin fever yesterday! Husband was also working from home all day, and a friend came over with her daughter for awhile.

Update 10:45 a.m.: Fixed!

    Couldn’t manually lift door?

    Glad you got your freedom back.

    We tried. That spring is one of two that are needed for the door to lift even manually (it wasn’t the garage door opener that broke). The door weighs several hundred pounds at least. Even the repair man needed help getting it raised. I’d never known that before, so I learned something new.
