Pop! Goes the Garage Door Spring!

Hi All!

Sorry - no pictures today - I need to get myself back into the swing of taking pictures for my blog again! Now that I have more time I should be able to do that soon. Adjusting to not working again is tricky!

Let's see. Yesterday I had a fabulous lunch at Fudrucker's with my friends Donna and Caroline. No, I didn't get a burger but the fries with cheese and bacon bits and the strawberry shake were excellent!

We then headed the the Cupcakery to try some "gourmet" cupcakes. They were pricey and fun to look at. They were pretty tasty too!

We had quite a gab fest and then it was time to head home. When I pulled into my driveway, I hit the button to open the garage door. Nothing. I tried again. Nothing. Again. Again. Again. Still nothing. Hmmm. I couldn't figure out what was going on. I parked my car in the driveway (after repositioning it so that when Hubby came home he could pull in beside my car) and walked around the house to let myself in the front door.

After a quick pit stop and some kitty greetings I headed to the garage to figure out what in the world was going on. Once more I tried the garage door opener. The door raised less than an inch before falling back to the closed position. Hmmmm.

I walked to the door to do a closer inspection and noticed that some cables were hanging loose. Then I looked and . . . the spring was sprung. No wonder the door wouldn't open!

So - today I will be waiting for the garage door guys to come and fix the thing instead of meeting up with people from class to work on some class stuff. In a way I am relieved because I really don't want to deal with class. However, I will really miss getting together with everyone and working. All of the people in class are so wonderful and it is so nice to be friends with them!

At least I might get a nap today!


Voice Update: Well, my voice is still doing pretty well but I have noticed that I am straining a bit too much to talk at times. I need to dial it back and speak softer to fix that. I am also missing some words, well, really sounds. That isn't good. I must admit that I have been taking a break from really concentrating on my exercises. Yes, I have been doing them but I haven't been very serious about the, and - it shows! Ugh!!!!
