why?

my house was broken into today....but some complete jerks

thankfully all that was apparently stolen was our nice tv and my house sitter's laptop.

thankfully we had a house sitter

most importantly, my dog is safe and unharmed...and was apparently sitting on the couch hanging out....stupid dog, but at least he's still alive and wasn't hurt.

Even when I can't stop crying, I'm reminded how blessed we are in this situation.  My poor house sitters weren't hurt, I still have a stupid dog to come home to, and my husband lost his wedding gift also which is only fair since I lost my sunglasses (my wedding gift) in the Mazatlan coastal waters.   Thank you God for a better outcome in a crappy situation....it could have much worse....


did I mention we are hundreds of miles away in Tucson, and can't leave until Sunday?  Yeah pretty neat huh?  now I am going to get a cold washcloth and work on the swollen eyes I currently am sporting...

HUGS!!!!!
I am glad that Max is safe. A TV and laptop can easily be replaced.

Oh mama-I'm so sorry! But your previous friend's comment couldn't be more right-material things are easy to replace, your sitter and Max are not. Big hugs!

I'm so sorry! I'll bet you are grateful that no one is harmed, though I can imagine how hard it must be.

Oh no how awful. I am so sorry to hear that. It must be horrible.

Ugh, people are such JERKS! I am so sorry, it's not just that they stole from you, but the fact that it's a total invasion of privacy!

So glad it wasn't much worse and that your dog and the house sitters are okay!

oh no :( i'm so sorry. but like you said, it could have been a lot worse. tv's can be replaced, but doggy's and people can't. glad everyone was safe. enjoy the rest of your trip!
