I've been MIA the last 4 days. After I did my blog last Wed I got a phone call from my hubby. He came home from work and found our front door open. He went inside and found we'd been robbed. Again! This time whoever it was ransacked the whole house. No drawer, cabinet, etc was left untouched. Turned upside down, dumped on the floor. The back door from the patio to the garage had been kicked in (it seems they tried to get in the other back door but couldn't.) and the house was shambles.
They took our TV (that sucker was 55"!), my Xbox and two games (Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 and Nike+ Training), 3 laptops (one brand spanking new!), our gun and ammo, my SS card, Birth Cert, our marriage license, a car title (hubby's 91 Stang), hubby's Air Force retirement papers, and our good jewelery. They also opened (and left open) our freezer in the garage.
I was So pissed I told the cop and CSI that was the house when I got home that If I caught up these scum bags I would kill them! The cop asked me to calm down. I was that pissed!
We do have insurance but we also have a $1000 deductible. Replacing the back door should almost take care of that. We'll need to replace the other stuff. The jewelery we really can't replace. We now have a 8 camera security system installed and hubby is putting a security screen door on the both doors today.
It just SUCKS that we have to feel so violated in this way. And that we'll need to try and hide any of electronic stuff even within our own home. The cop and CSI said we could get security service but even then it's still mostly a deterrent thing. Most home burglaries only take between 6 and 7 mins to happen. By the time a security company can send someone, notify us and the cops, and the cops get there it's already too late. Our cam system will get clear pictures of anyone breaking in from now on. And a dog really won't help. Our neighbors were robbed even though they have a dog.
So I have called our banks (just in case), got a new SS card on the way, put a fraud alert on both mine and hubby's credit, I still need to contact DMV and stuff. It's a huge PIA but something we need to do.
I didn't really watch what I ate at all. Thursday I was lucky to eat at all. So I was up weight wise today, and no workout as I hit a Gamestop at lunch to replace my missing workout games (small stuff I know but something I can do NOW).
I'm back at work today (I took Thur and Fri off last week) but skipped my work out to run errands. Dinner...well...who knows. I'll have to wing it!
I'm just so bummed out! Another thing...something like this shows how strong your marriage is. Hubby and I are going to be OK.
