Let me just start off by saying I'm doing a lot better now than I was 2 hours ago...  after hearing from a couple of sound individuals (thanks Ashley and Ron) that there are worse things in life and this is fixable, I'm more calm.  But I'm still upset.

Long story short sometimes I let Sam close the garage door.  Well, not today.  I told him I had to get groceries out of the back of the van and he couldn't close it.  He said "Yes Ma'am".  I got to the back of the van and opened the door; I even reminded him when I was back there that he wasn't to push the button and close the door.  So I went around the side to get Luke out before grabbing more groceries and what do you think happened?  Yep, you guessed it.  Sam closed the door.  By the time I tried to get the door back up, the damage was done.  My back van door was stuck in the garage door in a mangled mess.  Fortunately I pried the van door out and it only sustained a few scratches.  But the garage door will probably have to be replaced.  I'll find out in the next day or two.  As of now I'm scared to even attempt to lift the door back up, so I'm stuck in my house the rest of the day.

My wonderful husband came home and knocked the garage door around a little. He got it back in gear and it works. YEA! So a few dollars on some new trim and it looks like we're all good...

Isn't it nice to have a handyman close by?? :) I'm truly glad it shaped up for you. It sounds like the day ended better for you than earlier. Love, B
