Look, I have keys! (I'll change the locks but I'm amused by these keys)

To those that don't know, there was a horrible huge fire at a local factory (Started late Sunday and it's still smoldering now) and our town was evacuated yesterday... (http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/50091637.html) This of course added to stress levels (especially since my bank and the closing location were evacuated too). Even though the evacuation was called off in the evening, I stayed with a wonderful friend from work who opened her home to me. We chatted until bed while I knit, watched some TV and I got to sleep on a real bed instead of an air mattress. I am so grateful to her!

Now the movers come tomorrow so here are my boxes! There are more in other rooms and a bunch of "self-carry" items but these are the biggest piles.

P.S. I won't have internet for a couple days so I'm not ignoring anyone. I might have to steal some air time at Starbucks

Luck to you, sorry to hear about the fire, you have a lot of unpacking to do, but just think, this is at "your" home. Can't wait to see more photos.
I like the keys, not boring

Wow, scary about the fire! I am so glad you and your new place are OK!

And like Knittingdragonflies, I am excited to see how you fix the place up. I'm really happy for you.
