I’m writing this blog post (very tediously, I might add) from my cellphone (I apologize now for typos) because last night, while Dan and I were out getting frozen yogurt, our house was broken into and we were robbed.
Obviously, they took both of my laptops (hence the cellphone blog) but they also took Dan’s Xbox 360, all of the games, and our brand new TV. Unfortunately, we did not have renters insurance. So those things are gone forever.
This comes on the heels of having to suddenly finagle a car payment last week after the Jetta died.
I’m a bit discouraged, but we still have a lot to be thankful for.
THINGS I’M THANKFUL FOR THIS WEEK:
+ The things that were stolen are replaceable.
+ People are more important than things.
+ The fact that we weren’t home at the time.
+ The fact that I ran back inside the house at the last minute before we left to get my wedding rings.
+ The fact that despite two windows being forced open, neither of my cats got lost. They were freaked out (Hamlet was found hiding inside our bed box spring) but they were both okay.
+ The outpouring of love and support we received through texts and calls, even though it was late at night.
+ Nikki and Chris taking care of Romeo and Hamlet for us until we figure things out.
+ Sweet friends letting us crash at their place.
That’s all I got, folks. Blogging on a phone is obnoxious.
That said, a friend of mine suggested I ask FBDC readers for donations for a new computer. I feel super weird doing that, but I guess it can’t hurt.
If you’re interested in donating so I can continue to blog, you can do so via our ChipIn account here: http://durrenberger.chipin.com/home-theft-replacement
Have a great weekend; what are you thankful for this week?
