A Plea from my Sister-In-Law

July 28, 2007 at 11:55 am (Fun)

My brother Phil and his wife Tricia have entered a local radio station’s "Dream Garage Giveaway" and are asking for help recruiting the votes. Here is her plea…

As you may know, we squeezed our two households into 1500
square feet in Davis.  Our garage is a nightmare, since that’s where
the overflow goes.  We would love your help to change our storage
nightmare into a beautifully organized garage!  We recently entered a
contest to win a Garage Makeover from a local radio station: KFBK.  We
submitted a photo and a 50-word essay on why we should get a makeover. 

Two full households
combined, five bicycles, skis, food, wrapping paper, souvenirs, tools, vases,
kitchen appliances, camping gear, a dog kennel, Christmas decorations, teaching
supplies, and the occasional mouse makes one FRIGHTENING GARAGE!  No
journey into it occurs without some loathing and fear of collapsing
piles.  Please, please help us!


Tricia is a little bit like me in the whole anal retentive organizing area – she alphabetizes her canned goods for goodness sake! (I mean that with all the love Trish πŸ™‚ So I can totally identify with how crazy this must drive her.

So if you’d please take a few minutes and vote for them it would be great. Note it does send you an email that you have to click on the link to actually verify your vote. Feel free to forward along to others who might vote for them – all in the name of marital happiness πŸ™‚ They announce the winner on Wednesday so get your vote in soon.
