With a tape measure and center punch to make sure the drill bit stays put it's a 10 minute job, tops.
    I'll probably do it myself... I'm pretty handy, just not exact with measurements! I'll figure something out; I've already installed my own alarm system! He can deal until he's stationed stateside again.

    And I don't count with the base here... he's not deployed, he's actually stationed in Bahrain and not attached to the command nearby. There's people I could call if I really needed help with something, I just don't like to do that. After my husband left, it turns out all my friends were actually his, and I haven't heard from them since. I won't hang out with someone who's just doing it because they feel sorry for me, I'd just wind up feeling worse. Kinda sad, really... my husband was the guy that always looked after the families of anyone deployed.

    They weren't very good friends of his either if they can't look in on you now and then while he's gone...without being asked. Just my opinion.

Does anyone have any ideas? Nothing fancy, just a way to make sure that is the UPS guy outside.
