I know the initial purpose of a garage was to house and protect the car. But they have also become warehouses for
out of season cushions,
artwork not worthy of being indoors,
excess big box purchases,
Yes, those are just some of my garage's contents and it drives me nuts. You cannot open a car door for fear of hitting a planter pot on one side or a 3' by 5' mirror on the other or the other car, with little green or white dings to prove it's happened. The mirror was moved here almost 10 years ago, never hung inside but it can't leave!!!
It's a nearly impossible space to keep clean....think oil drops, leaves, spiders and more. It has been, past tense, the residence of a 4' black snake, a bird and a black widow spider, to my knowledge. Who knows what other creatures have come and gone (hopefully)?
But I am grateful to have it, nonetheless. For 6 years in new York I didn't have one...think snow, so I am appreciative.
I am happy that we can put the cars inside but I just wish someone, anyone would clean it up. Are you listening, Mr. Someone???
UPDATE: He listened and didn't read this post. The garbage can is full. There's a nice pile for the yard sale and the floor is squeaky clean....almost. Hopefully the mouse we disturbed finds a new home!
