And so it goes

As some of you  may know, my sister and her family have been living with me while she looks for a full-time job. They put all of their belongings in a storage unit except what they thought they would need immediately.  The unit was packed tight by the movers, front to back, top to bottom. When Molly came home from college her stuff was put in the front.

We haven't been to the unit since August but we all needed some cooler weather clothes and I needed my winter shoes/boots for a trip to Chicago. My sister and I headed over there last night only to find out the entire unit was ransacked and robbed.

We won't be able to tell exactly what is missing until we can start pulling things out but it looks like they spent a lot of time in there opening bags of clothes, moving everything around and taking at least one television, some electronics and bags of clothes. I cant' find my winter stuff including my comforter and plastic bin of boots.

 We know, "it's only stuff". No one was hurt, everyone is ok but it's such a violation and my sister has been struggling this past year looking for a job it just feels like one more crappy thing to happen.

Please keep Suzanne, Kevin, Molly and Paige in your thoughts and prayers while they are going through this difficult time.
