See this picture?
It's snowing. And I'm thrilled about that. Completely, totally, and enthusiastically thrilled. Because I am a sucker for winter and especially snow. (Yeah, I know...I'm weird that way.)
But I still have to park my truck outside.
Because though the garage is now totally enclosed from our truck-meet-garage encounter of 6 weeks ago...the contractors still have to put up the drywall on the inside.
So the dumpster is still in our driveway making it impossible to pull into the garage.
Which also means that I have to scrape my car of ice each morning...or in today's case, snow.
Can you see that spot in the driveway where there is NO snow...just wet?
That's where I parked 5 minutes ago.
It's hard to tell from this picture but my driveway is a pretty good hill...enough so that sometimes I have to put the truck into 4-wheel drive just to get into the garage when we have a lot of snow.
Today, the snowy, hilly driveway apparently caused my truck to slide back down into the street after I had gone into the house.
I guess it's a good thing I looked out the window.
And yes...this time I put on the parking brake. (Why I didn't think of that earlier, I don't know.)
When, oh when is our garage going to be truly finished???
(Oh...something else you noticed? Yes...those are in fact Bryan's 40th birthday balloons from last Friday still hanging limply from my lamp post.)
