When my husband goes on business trips( quite often)  the only thing I do is leave lots of lights on....

That is a very dangerous thing.  To keep a "gun" that isn't really a gun, which you don't know how to use even IF it was a gun - would scare the bee-jeebers out of a burglar and as soon as he saw the bee-bee gun, he would shoot you AND your beautiful Golden Retriever.  That is the worst idea you and your husband could have come up with. 

 

Please re-think this.  The burglar would come into your room with his gun already in his hand, before you ever started to reach for yours, which isn't even a gun.  I have the shakes just picturing this scenario.....

Do you close your bedroom door at night?

 

Do you close your bathroom door when you are using it (or not using it)?

 

Do you pull all of your shades down or close your drapes at night?

 

My answers are yes, yes, and yes.


If asleep yes.

It's just us, no but yes if showering so room doesn't get cold when you exit shower.

Yes to blinds drawn at night for sleep.

Hi, my JSS Heart

 

I've lived solo (without another human) for the last 30 years, but for most of them I've been blessed with a beloved animal companion.

Or two.

Or three.

 

My own answers are:

No

Sometimes

Yes

 

Hope you, your daughter, & your granddog are all doing well. Woman Happy

@candys mine. Your squeaky doors reminded me of the string of decorative brass bells that mom hung on the inside of the front door.  I was a teen & complained about how noisy they were when I came in from a date.  Mom just looked at me & said yes

DUH!Woman LOL


GOOD IDEAS FOR BOTH OF YOU!!

No to all three.

 

I don't like being in a room with a closed door.  I'm here alone during the day so the only time I close the bathroom door is when my husband is home or when our daughter is visiting.

 

I keep the shades halfway all the time unless it's really hot, then I pull them three quarters of the way down to keep the sun out.
