In order for me to get in and out of the house, my husband or Metro Mobility needs to be able to park in front of the house on the street. There are two steps (one regular, one small) then a walkway to the street. The neighbors are usually very good about not parking in front of our house as they know about my mobility issues. Their friends and family, however, usually aren't aware and if they park in front of the house, it makes it very difficult, if not impossible, for me to get out.
I called the city to see if there is anything that could be done, perhaps a handicapped only parking sign. I got bounced around from the city clerk to the police department to the police chief. Hey, at least I headed UP the chain! I'm waiting to hear back from the police chief. Maybe he'll have a solution. Even if not, it doesn't hurt to ask.
I did well yesterday and stayed under 2500 calories, did 30 minutes of exercise, and drank 8 to 10 cups of water.
