You Got My Number

I'm going to preface this post by saying that I am probably the only one who finds this remotely exciting.  If you have nothing better to do, read on.

So what do you do when you get up and go outside to take the trash out ('cause your husband isn't home. Why else would you take the trash out?) and realize Monday was a holiday so the trash man isn't coming today?  If you're sane you go back to bed, but if you're me, you stay outside and hang some numbers on your house, 'cause who doesn't get out of bed to do that?

From the main street, you can't see our front door.  You have to drive up our private drive to get a good glimpse.  What you can see from the main road is our garage.  After many times of spying watching people drive to the front of our house, check the number, then back up into our driveway, I decided to make it a little easier on everyone.   I added a house number on the garage.

I bought individual numbers at Lowe's for a couple of bucks a piece.  Putting them up by myself was pretty easy.  I used painter's tape to stick them on and then moved them around until they were in the position I wanted.  I measured once to make sure they were pretty well centered, then used a power drill to hang them up. Voila!

My hubby returns from a business trip tonight.  I wonder if he'll notice?  Or if he does notice, if he'll just ask me if I put his drill away properly?  Funny thing is, I use that drill more than he does.  Don't worry honey, I would never tell anyone that.


  1. Great work. I think I may have gone back to bed with the garbage left out till the next day, lol!
