Big News!

My car is back in the garage!! No, not the mechanics, our garage. Our two car garage that for over a year has not had room to park any cars. Ok, so it is not world peace, but pretty dang exciting for me. And I can take absolutely no credit for it. Jeff and his Dad took a first crack at it. Then a couple of weeks ago, Jeff finished the job. He is the organizer in the family. If I try to organize something, it winds up looking worse then when it started. I am still trying to figure out this part of my personality….

We used to have both cars in the garage until about 2 years ago. I decided that I needed space to paint a small hutch I had picked up. Well, as soon as the car was out, the space gradually filled up (wonder how that happened? Couldn’t be that we have way too much stuff, now could it?). Then last year, Jeff finally sold his Prowler (that rarely left the garage) and made the mistake of not immediately parking a car in it’s place. You guessed, it…that side soon filled up and we found ourselves with a 2 car garage that did not have room to fit even 1 car.

We did have a minor debate about whose car was going to have the honor of living in the garage. My arguement being that more members of the family would benefit from not getting wet when it was raining if I had it. His arguement being that he did all the work and should reap the rewards (I am afraid that he had me on that one!). However, he did agree to let me have the space since we would be leaving for Ocean City (Maryland) in a couple of weeks and he will have it all to himself all summer.

Very gracious of him, don’t you think? So thank you hon…we appreciate it. And yes, I will look into getting rid of the half-painted hutch that is taking up so much room on the other side of the garage…

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

  1. Don’t feel too bad. Good friends of ours have a 3 stall garage that they’ve NEVER been able to get a car into – going on 5 years now!
