So, today I got home from church with both kids about half and hour overdue for a nap and whining. DH had to stay in town to drive his parents to the ferry, and we just upgraded the lock/handle on our front door... anyways, long story short, I realized I didn't have a key for our house or a cell phone and, driven to desperation by the sound of my screaming 4 month old, ended up stacking DD's slide on top of our picnic table to scale the side of our house onto our deck and thankgodthankgodthankgod our door up there was unlocked! Bonus - I was wearing a ankle length skirt from church, so I had to take it off for the climb, meaning I did it... in my underwear. Yup. Hopefully no neighbors were looking out their windows, haha... *sigh*
DH and I have lived in this house for over 3 years and have always meant to hide a spare key somewhere but have never got around to it. Today I vowed that would change!! So, do you have a spare key hidden outside of your house? Why or why not? Where? I was thinking out back in our shed maybe... just looking for any spare key wisdom you gals have to share Thanks!
