And now I feel stupid......

When I went to grab the dog food this morning I noticed that my garage door was open.  Not good! But I went about my normal morning routine assuming that the stupid snow had caused the door to pop back up.

I kissed my husband good-bye and continued getting ready after he had left.  I eventually jumped into my car, backed out of the garage, hit the garage door button annnnnnnd nothing.........absolutely nothing! No light, no blinking, no motion......nothing.  EFF!

Apparently the string got shut in my car door and when we went to shut the garage door it disengaged the garage door.  I could shut the door manually but that was it.  

So, I called my dad for help.  Logical thing to do, right?!? Right!  He explained to me exactly what I needed to do over the phone.  Unfortunately, I am a visual person and the explanation just wasn't doing it.  So my dad said he would be right over to help me out. 

Once my dad got to the house it literally took him 10 seconds to fix.  After watching what he did to fix the garage his instructions made complete sense.  The light bulb was burning bright but boy did I feel stupid!!!!
At least now I know how to fix our garage door!  Thank goodness it is Thursday!!!!
