The Opener

For the past couple of days we have been going in the house using the front door, then unlocking the garage door and raising it manually. When we left, we would pull the car out, close the garage door, lock it, then go through the house and out the front door. I am quite certain that you are familiar with the routine of life with a manual garage door opener.

Enter the electronic kind. It’s been a long time since we have not had an opener. It’s been an equally long time since I realized how much something as simple as a garage door opener makes you feel at home. Going in and out of the front door all of the time brings a sort of ‘visitor’ quality with it. Being able to pull into the driveway, hit a button, and park inside – it’s nothing short of special privilege that only the homeowner gets to enjoy. Smiles all around.

The move is going steadily. More trips to the house today, but they have been a little tempered since Ezra was part of the cycle back and forth. Things will heat up over the next two days, with the big move happening on Saturday.

Here’s a picture of Ezra hanging out in the new place…
