First Parking Mishap
Driving around in our fabulous accessible van, I’m learning where the best parking spaces are. Big shout out to Target for having the most available accessible spaces. Garreth went out on a man-date the other night and we wives decided to take the kids out for pizza. Now, I’m generally one to hunker down at home and not deal with the hassle of taking kids out. However, I figured, if she could get out with two adorable, very young, squirmy children, I could sure do it. So we drove around looking for parking. None. Now we’re late.
But wait, up yonder where doth horizon breaks, an accessible spot just for us. I pull into it and push the magic button to open the lift. That’s right, people, you’re going to be so jealous of this transforming machine. The van lowers then nothing happens. The ramp didn’t come out and the door wouldn’t shut. I got out to find that the van had lowered itself into the snow (on April first by the way) and got stuck. I did want any brilliant mother would do. I started kicking at the snow and told Liam to find my friend in the restaurant and order me a beer. Good times were had by all.
