Trapped in the Garage

So, there has been some water main work going on in the neighborhood that finally made it's way to our block about a month ago. I don't actually remember when it started but it sure feels like it's been at least a month. We got a notice saying not to park on the street between the hours of 7am and 5pm. You may remember that we have quite a collection of vehicles at our house. So, we've parked the F-250 in the driveway next to the Chevy S10 (which my hubby drives on the weekend). We also have my step-daughter's Subaru. She parks in the driveway behind the S10 because she works the morning shift at Starbucks. When there is a big pile of dirt in front of our house, I park behind the F-250. Usually, hubby, who drives an Escape for work, and I can both park on the street because we are usually not home between 7am and 5pm. But, the F-250 remains, which means, I can't get the motorcycle out of the garage.

We can't really move it because we can't park it on the street. And even if we could, and I took the moto to work, I'd then have to find a place to park the Forester during the day. It's just not worth the trouble for a project that we hope will soon be over.

In the meantime, we've been enjoying watching this little one grow and learn. :-)

I also recently learned about this class being offered in Colorado!
I am seriously considering spending some of my savings on this. How cool would that be!?!

Hope everyone is enjoying their spring time weather!


  1. Losing your street parking during the day must be a major pain, especially if they don't give you some solid dates. When I've been home, I've been enjoying Spring on foot, on x-country skis or on the bike w/sidecar. The bicycle has only mede it out a couple of times this winter (lazy) and I ran for the first time since the marathon last Fall.

  2. Wow that street work is creating a parking fiasco for you.

    And holy cow your granddaughter is growing up fast. Such a cutie!!
