The kids were asleep, I was relaxing on our stiff Army couch stitching watching an episode of General Hospital...Steve was in the shower. "GET HELP" (I thought get out) started screaming from the monitor thing on our living room wall. I am yelling for Steve to get out here I think there might be a fire or something and we need to leave. He takes forever so I yell for him again. He still doesn't jump out of strange long shower. So I run into my room yelling at him while the monitor in the living room is going off. I then hear Steve and he says it's him he is locked in the bathroom. I was wondering what was taking him so long. See this picture in our master bath...the toilet has a million buttons and on the wall are the emergency buttons...that's what Steve had pushed. He said he had been yelling for help 20 min., poor guy was sweating to death in there. The very next min. our doorbell is ringing and our doorman and security guy from downstairs were up here. The alarm Steve hit goes to them. The siren was flashing and going off in the hallway outside our front door too. HOLY MOLY! Steve got out and the Korean guy was smiling and bowing after he had finally got our alarm to go off...we were so embarrassed.

This is the control panel in our living room. You can let visitors in the building, open the front door, we have an elevator button to push so when we are leaving the house the elevator will be waiting for us on our floor. It's got a camera so you can see who is coming and going. This apartment is SOOOO nice. Can you believe we have gaurds to let you in the parking garage and a doorman that says hello and bows every time you enter the's crazy.
Things so far have been fun. Last night I went to the South Post Chapel for the quilting club...FUN STUFF! Last Saturday we also took the train to Dongdaemun to the huge fabric market...WOW. I am going back....alone or with friends. I took pictures I will share later.
