The Low Life that Broke into my House.

I am grumpy.  Some low life kicked our front door in and took our TV.  I know that it could have been much worse, we could have lost a lot more, had damage and worse but .....  Now my space feels violated and my safely compromised.

My husband is away with work and I am at home alone with the children.  I wonder now if the low life will be back for more so I am busy making sure my computer is backed up and any other temptations are out of sight.  Who knows what else might go.  My husband is not back from his long haul trip until Thursday so fingers crossed nothing else will happens.

So here is the space for the TV

Here is the temporary fix for the front door.  All I can say is that the door is quite dated and door knob is broken.  We were not going to replace it but now we have to get a new front door as this one is broken and we really have little choice but to replace the knob.  That was not in the budget.


I hope that they do not come back as I could not go through this a second time while DH is away.  Wont his txt message give him a surprise when he lands in Hong Kong latter tonight.

So to the low life that came uninvited into my house and stole from us.  I hope you enjoy our TV.  I hope you put the money you make from it to good use and don't waste it on meaningless life activities such as feeding a habit.

Doesn't it make you feel so defenceless ! Let's hope they won't risk showing their faces again, and also it might be an idea to tell your children not to tell their friends at school what is in their home. They could have older brothers and sisters and come and do this terrible thing to your family. They may even hear some kids bragging about it, if they don't mention it to their friends, if they were, indeed, responsible for doing this. More than likely 14 - 18 year olds, and wanting the money, more than the object itself. Good Luck. Thinking of you. (hugs)

Oh, so sorry - This happened to me once (all my grandmother's jewelry stolen - broke my heart) and that feeling of invasion and not being safe took a LONG time to shake off. My police dept. told me that after something like this happens they hang around the neighborhood for a while, more than usual - that made me feel safer. God bless you and hope it all settles down SOON.
