I really look forward to this - particularly the one on getting the car into the garage. That is a never ending issue here!

Susan - I know what you mean.  I remember being so excited when we bought our house.  I had never had a 2 car garage!  Fifteen years later and I think I only got to park in there once.  My husband has hijacked the entire garage with all of his power tools and "big boy toys".   At least he washes my car for me :)
