Forgive me Dearest blog, for I have sinned. It has been more than a month since my last post.
Gee where do I begin? Please forgive me ahead of time if this post is poorly worded or expressed. I’ve debated, with myself of course, on whether or not to mention it at all but I feel I must in order to say it and move on. Must move on.
A couple of weeks ago we came home to find our home had been burgled. As you can imagine, it was a one of those sick to your gut feelings along with “Did this really happen?” I was pretty sick about it and, to some extent, yes it still bothers me and I wonder if I should even be posting about it (more on that later).
It makes me angry to know total strangers have such disregard for others and their property. I feel totally violated and sick that some really sad people (for lack of a better word) broke into our home. Losers!
My privacy was invaded in a horrible way. The losers got off with our large plasma tele, my son’s laptop, my MacBook Pro, an old and broken mobile (fools), my check book and they even had the nerve to rifle through our kid’s rooms and take our daughter’s school bag with all of her school work inside. Disgusted pretty much sums up how I feel. Must move on, I know. Getting there.
Lesson learned: make sure I have back-up copies of all personal photos and work, etc. I lost most of my library of photos and I am kicking myself for not uploading them elsewhere. I could have uploaded to my mac account but I didn’t. I’ve basically been beating myself up all the while telling myself this serves no purpose except to remember the lesson learned. The hard way I might add.
The fact that total strangers have a peek into my “stuff” annoys me. Although I have been reminded they most likely didn’t target me personally I’m taking it personal and I’m mad. They can read my blog if they want to which creeps me out completely. I know it’s a public site but I dare to think the losers could be creepy to boot.
I thought maybe not to post for fear the losers who came into our home uninvited might read this. I know it’s a far stretch but these things cross your mind, or mine anyway, and I’m bothered. It’s a strange feeling and one I hope will pass given a little more time.
When it rains it pours and I don’t want to be a complaining, whiny bum but I’m just stating the facts. It was my husband’s birthday the day we were violated. The following day our daughter was admitted to the hospital for the entire week due to an asthma attack. Our car is dying a slow death. I’m having some serious issues with my teeth and the pain has become unbearable. (I’ve been to the dentist and we’re making progress). *To top it all off, I found a lump in my breast. I’ve been mammogrammed, ultra sounded and biopsied and the radiologist said that it looked like common fibroid cists but they are taking care of me and making sure. I’m doing fine.
Feels good to get that off my chest about being burgled. Done with that and thanks for listening to me vent. I hope to move on and post about good things. Things I have a passion for, things that bring joy and make me want to skip rather than walk.
(*I don’t make habit to talk about something so personal but I do so in saying I appreciate any and all prayer for this matter.)
“Keep Calm and Carry On”. I’ll do just that.
