|Day 24: I hope they at least used all the money they stole to buy candy for their children's Easter baskets. Actually scratch that, I hope they don't have children.|
Since then, I've been doing what I can to feel safer and hopefully prevent any future incidents. My very nice neighbor Adam is in the process of installing a motion sensor light over the garage, but in the meantime I'm sleeping with the porch light on and a light on upstairs so it looks like someone is up and about. Adam also re-taught me how to shoot my shotgun, but I'm hoping I never need to use that. I am in the process of getting all of my cards (credit, debit, driver's license, military ID, Barberitos Frequent Rollers Burrito Club) replaced, but this whole thing has been quite a hassle! I am living off of some cash my Dad loaned me on Sunday, since I can't withdraw anything from the bank and most places won't take a personal check without seeing your driver's license. It has been very unnerving to have this happen within a month of James leaving, but he has been very supportive throughout the whole process. I honestly am not scared for my safety. If they had wanted to draw attention to themselves, they would have stolen a lot more than the purse. I think the thieves were just looking for some quick cash. But like my gramma told me, something like this just makes you feel violated. If you want to check out the report on the Police Blotter (and read the mean comments of people who told me I deserved it for leaving my purse in sight), you can check that out here.
Now, onto something more fun!
|Day 25: Robb and I plan our new lake house (also known as the two-story shed from Home Depot). We have it all figured out; it's going to be pretty sweet.|
|Day 26: Praise the Lord, we finished testing! Five days of the CRCT was more than enough! While I'm very proud of the effort my kids put into it this year, I'm also VERY glad we have that out of the way.|
|Day 27: Playing in math with one of my favorite kiddos. I taught them how to play Contig, and it was a BIG hit|
