I'd gladly have been "all in" to the market during all of 2009 so far -- if I could go back in time and be "all out" for all of 2008.

Ah, but 2009 has only just begun....

But you're right - - 2008 was the worst so far! "And they call me a cock-eyed optimist..."

We are another family that comes in and goes out through the attached garage. The door is in the kitchen. The younger son usually parks on the street so when he leaves in the morning he leaves through the front door. But when he comes home at night he comes in through the garage using his remote opener.

We have a sliding glass door in the kitchen that goes out to the deck and the backyard.

Never use any of three doors. The one which was the "front" door is now just one of three side door. Landscaping success. Those in the know show up at rear door.

We use the door to the garage after pulling into the garage.

We have a bunch of furniture in front of one external door on the other side of the house. Obviously we never use it!

I enter through the attached garage also. DH had a 2 car garage built in back and he enters through the back door. When we go on walks, we usually go out the back door and in through the front door. We have a side door that never gets used.

Front door every time.

It uses a deadbolt so there is a 0% chance of locking myself out if I use it.

We live in the city and park on the street and use the front door.
Back door is off the alley and is used for bringing things into the basement or taking out the trash.

Garage door mostly, enters to the laundry room and then kitchen.
Front door to get the newspaper and go for walks. Packages have gone unnoticed for a day or two.
Siding glass door to the screened-in back porch to get the lawn mower in the shed that's underneath the porch.

Basement sliding glass to the shed if I'm working on the lawn equipment, since the tools are all in the basement.

We use the attached garage for entry--garage door or door next to garage door. I do use the front door at least 10 times a day! (the wood for the fireplace insert is stacked on the front porch to keep it dry).

Mostly through the garage except when going down to the dock or pier, then out the back (faces the lake) by way of sliding glass door and screened porch. Rarely use the front door unless visitors or deliveries are involved. Often leave without a house key since I depend on the garage door opener, but rarely lock the back door whether I am home or not (unless away overnight).

I use the garage door when leaving and returning home. I go out the front door to get the morning paper and the milk (yes, we still get milk delivered) so that's when I spot the packages left at the door.

Company and solicitors come to the front door. Close friends coming from the rear just come in the back sliding doors.
