Any time the power goes out I have to consider how much I really want to get the vehicle out of the garage. The door weighs a ton unless it is released, and there is a release cord that I finally extended so I can reach and release it. It used to have a plastic handle but I cut that off when I realized it used as part of a trick used by burglars (who pushed the door just enough to create a gap then hooked the cord handle and released it). An insurance guy told me about that. I can reach the cord but it wouldn't be as easy to snag.

I think I've about had it with painting trim. There are a couple of doorways left, and then it's onto finishing the replacement tiles and scrubbing the floor before the move in. The question I have asked myself now: I had lots of the shelves with the brace screwed to the wall and the brackets that attach to support boards. The walls look so good - do I want to drill holes? I will put them up again, but I'm not going to put them as high as before.
