Moving Day

Hi all -

I'm moving into my new apartment in Boston today. (Thank goodness I had already planned to move out this month anyway and had already rented a new place!) And now I have no need for a UHaul! Life works in a mysterious ways sometimes...

Anyway I am so lucky to have my dear friend Mary who has rallied the troops at work (she works with me at Ch7) and has managed to fill my apartment with the essentials I will need to move in. She's been so amazing - as has my boss Nancy who has also been on the task of finding me stuff. And my reporter friend Hank called the Emmy people and even managed to get me replacement statues - which was so cool of her!!! And then there's the donations from all my coworkers - as well as all the calls and emails and volunteering to help in any way. They have blown me away with their generosity. It's so amazing to see people come together like this.

Anyway - I believe someone is donating a computer, but I won't be online for a few days (need to set up DSL), so this may be the last you hear from me til Monday when I return to work. I'll be in touch with Alesia though, through phone, to give updates and will take pics of the new place! :)

So before I go - I just want to say THANK YOU to all of you who have sent me stuff so far and those of you who plan to do so or to bid on the auction, etc. Once I'm on my feet I will thank EVERYONE personally, but I wanted to throw out a general one cause I am sooo grateful. I can't wait to go out and buy the things I need. It's a weird feeling going into Target and needing EVERYTHING. But thanks to all of you, I know I will be able to get that "everything" and be okay.

Sorry if this is blabbing, but I've been sick on top of everything else and I think the Nyquil is still making my head foggy.

I'm so sorry this happened, but very glad that you have generous friends. Chin up, things will work out.

Good luck!

Marianne...not that I'm trying to get props or anything, but I wanted you to know that I have lot of people who are sending stuff to me to get to you, many people from the CLW loop and other places who have just found out about your woes. I'm keeping everything together and will bring it to you at the NEC meeting on the 21st. Let's just say...someone is sending you a don't go buy one!
