Roller Coaster day!

Today my day started with the night manager knocking on the door and telling us that someone had broken into our storage space during the night... a bunch of boxes were on the ground spilled out, and the box with most of my (complex and expensive) Nativity was gone. I was so crushed. While my husband and the night manager were waiting for the police, they looked around and found some things that were discarded in the vacant lot next door--including my Nativity! Also a bunch of things that weren't ours--apparently we weren't the only ones that got hit. We went through the boxes, and it doesn't look like there's much missing. Besides time missed from the job dealing with this and the emotional effects of someone breaking in and going through my stuff, no lasting harm done. So, a roller coaster day today as far as emotions.

Oh, what an awful experience---but I'm glad you got your Nativity back. I hope there was no damage and no pieces missing.

Thanks everyone! The police officer said that it was most likely a drug addict looking for things that could be easily turned into cash. He thought tat once they realized that my Nativity probably couldn't be sold easily, they abandoned it. So far, I only see minor damage. I'm just really glad it wasn't worse....
