Well, I won't be able to post pictures again for a long time... someone broke into my apartment yesterday evening just before I got home with the boys and took both mine and Sam's digital cameras as well as all my jewelry of value. They got some cash but didn't find most of it since it was in two different places. They also stole books! Books people!!! The police officer said that most likely, it was some meth addict just looking for things to take for quick money and the used book store is on the corner. Weird, still.... I'm very sad about my jewelry... especially my engagement ring that was Chuck's great grandmother's ring. I have not worn it in months because the prongs needed some repair and I was afraid to lose the diamonds. I've been putting it off because jewelry is a "want" and not a "need"... now it, along with any other jewelry he'd ever given me, is gone. I'm sick about that ring and my camera. What will I do without a camera?!!!!????
I'm so thankful they didn't take my computer... or have time to. and when I got home and realized my arcadia door in my bedroom was open, I immediately looked for Kenzy and am thankful he did not get out. They came in through my bathroom window... broke it out. And, I"m thankful we weren't here.. but I do suspect they were here when we got home and ran out when they heard the key in the locks. Otherwise, the door being opened for long, Kenzy would have been gone.
We spent the night with my mom last night and I actually hauled all my computer equipment along with me, the kids, and the cat! My window got boarded up so now I'm waiting for it to be replaced.
Cleaning up the fingerprint powder is awful! It's greasy! It took 45 minutes to clean up the bathroom today! I'm hoping the prints the police were able to get will turn someone's name up.
I'm thinking that maybe tomorrow and Wednesday, I'll hit some pawn shops and look for my stuff... just in case.
I didn't finish here at the apartment and get to my mom's until after midnight last night and my rear end is dragging right now. I'm thankful my step-dad came and got the boys around 9:00 so they didn't have to be up any later.
Gonna' finish cleaning up the kitchen and go to bed early. Ya'll pray for our protection and that the kids will not be so afraid going to bed. Last night, they were really freaked out.
