But not one which we had planned.
About 2 1/2 weeks ago, one of the garage door springs decided to have its left end part company with the right. This, it did at 2100 hrs, just after my wife had fallen asleep in her recliner.
Did I mention that said spring is directly under her seat? That was an exciting five seconds, she could assure you. :)
Today, the spring, pulleys and cables were replaced. All is once again well in the Land of The Garage.
And once again, we're thankful that our realtor explained the benefits of the gold standard "extra" package on the homebuyers' warranty. It covers the spring, pulleys, cables and labor. (It also covers all of our appliances, our furniture, and all the major systems in the house.
So the door repair cost only a $100 deductible, and we're good to go.
And it's just as well: it wouldn't do to go into tonight's debate already agitated by something else. In Biblical terms, sufficient unto the debate is the evil thereof.
p.s. I know I said there were no plans to watch yon debate ... but my family had other plans. So it will be on, although I might catch up on some reading. :)
