Waiting For A Phone Call

United States
September 23, 2022 9:50am CST
Happy Fri-YAY everyone! it's a beautiful sunny and cool Fall day here. It got so chilly overnight that I had to get up and put a blanket on my bed. I love nights like this and I sleep so much better. I'm having trouble with my automatic garage door as it's banging and jumping when it starts to open. It almost seems as if its going to come off the track so I went to our towns Facebook page to see the recommendations. Facebook does come in handy sometimes. I found a company that got lots of recommendations so I gave them a call and left a message. I'm hoping they call back and we can schedule an appointment and see what the problem is. My biggest fear is that the door is going to get stuck open and then what am I going to do???????? So my day will be waiting for the phone to ring. Normally I'm not anxious for the phone to ring but today is an exception While I'm playing the waiting game my day will go on as usual. There's always something to do to keep me busy Anything exciting planned for the weekend? I don't have anything planned but sometimes no planning weekends turn out the best.

If the garage door sticks open, you could always make yourself a pallet in the garage so you can scream if someone wanders in... I hope you have a good day.

@FourWalls Honestly, probably not! What would you do without me?

@DaddyEvil — that’s true. And we can’t always rely on Pony.

That does sound like one of the wheels is off the track (not that it ever happened to me or anything ). Hope you can get it repaired very quickly!

@Marilynda1225 — I’m blessed in that my garage isn’t attached to my house, so it’s not a security risk if something’s wrong with the door.

It's anyones guess at this point. All I know is I'm not going to open the door until someone comes to fix it. I'm so afraid of having it bounce off the track or get stuck open and then I'm up the creek

@FourWalls My garage is attached to the house and is filled with all sorts of stuff as well as the car. If the door got stuck open it would be a big fiasco for sure.

Lots of exciting things to look forward to here. First off is me refilling the hole that Roscoe dug on that stretch of road where I drive in and then I'll be doing a lot of keypunching. Whew, talk about exciting .... oh, forgot, will be doing a couple loads of laundry too.

No big plans for the weekend here. Maybe clearing some of my outside potted plants that are about done.

I hope you get your garage door problem squared away. We don't have any plans for the weekend other than setting up my new printer. Have a good one!

Hope you get your printer set up without any problems. I'm hoping they can get here next week to look at the garage door. Right now I'm afraid to open it

Fall festivals are always fun and hope you have a good time and good weather for yours. I spoke to the garage door company and they'll come out one day next week. I won't know until Monday what day

@Marilynda1225 Yeah, but as of the moment they are predicting rain due to the hurricane remnants. I hope that doesn't happen!! That would ruin the festival.

We had an issue where our door would come to a close and then bounce back open again. It turned out the those little electronic eyes on either side of the door down near the floor were not lined up 100%, someone probably accidently knocked on walking by. We could hold the door down and it would stay, but it was a pain.

That's happened to me too and I had no idea something could interfere with the sensor but this seems totally different. Hopefully they'll be able to get a technician out next week. Right now I'm not opening the door at all

Oh no I can’t help but picture out the door getting stuck open and it’s night time already and the door guy hasn’t called yet

That's exactly what I'm afraid of. I talked to the company and they should be out one day next week to see what the problem is

Hope you get someone to fix the garage door soon. Nothing in particular planned for the weekend. Reading a Chinese history book.

Someone should be here one day next week to look and hopefully fix the garage door. Meanwhile it's staying shut and I'm not opening it for anything

I didn't even know they needed a tune-up. Guess I should think about that and see what the door people say when they come
