Garage Doors

*the stupid pad that won't work!

Have I mentioned we moved? Probably not. I promise to catch you all up on the ups and downs around here but to ease in. Yup we moved! And Brian and my dad spent yesterday putting up a garage door opener. I have couple of things to say about this. First, a company whose name I won't mention (starts with "Ch" and ends with "amberlin") I really like your product. The men folk who put it together really didn't seem to have too much trouble with it and there wasn't a lot of swearing so good job there. It is soooooo quiet which is awesome and makes me realize that garage door openers don't HAVE to sound like a fork going around in a garbage disposal.

But, and of course there is a but, if you are going to sell me something that comes with fun bells and whistles, it would be nice if you would make sure that the "magic" pad that makes it so you can program the whole damn thing works!!!!! Seriously I can't use the pad by the door or my remote keypad (which I REALLY want to play with) Granted the car remotes work but apparently those come pre-programed from the manufacturer. So now I wait and I am not a patient person. And if your 1-800 people tell my husband he has to take the whole thing down, I just KNOW that there will be swearing! Right now my rating is 3 out of 5 stars. That could change if stupid "magic" pad is an easy fix.

Second, to Mr. Builder, seriously would it have killed you to install a garage door opener? Or at least wired it before you finished off the garage. I mean then I would not have to see the wires, they could be hidden in the walls and would be MUCH more pleasing to the eye.

That's not even mentioning the swearing that happened when we had to run cable in the walls for my flat screen after Brian and my dad realized that there was no wiring in the house and 6 inches of blown insulation in the walls. Two grown men and lots and lots of swearing. Might want to make a note, next time run the flipping cable!!

'til next time
