Day 18: Lobject's house key
Day 18: Lobject’s house key
We moved into our first house a week before last Christmas. It was a surprisingly sunny day, especially since the year before we had blistery weather, including a white Christmas.
After packing for weeks and staying up almost all the night the day before the move to organize boxes in the garage, it was moving day. Friends and family showed up in comfortable clothes and (free) APA t-shirts. This is the only time these cheap shirts we get for playing pool league come in handy. The ladies and I cleaned the old house while the guys took care of the heavy lifting. After each box was off the truck at our new house, my husband and father-in-law changed the locks.
My husband proudly handed me a plain silver key. My first key to our house shined. There was nothing wrong with it except it had no personality. Should keys have personality? I think so. I looked at the boring keys on my key chain and decided this shiny key wouldn’t do, didn’t look any different.
