I've been meaning to...

clean out my bathroom cabinets,
organize my dresser drawers,
sort out my itunes collection
get some prints from my pictures on my computer,

and so much more....
but now, I'm either forced to or don't have the opportunity to any more. We were robbed this week (or maybe I should say burglarized) They broke in in the middle of the day Wednesday coming in through the sliding glass door in the back yard, which was apparently unlocked. They took my laptop and my daughters, both of our cameras, my grandmother's mink capelet, DHs wedding ring, and lots of other jewelry including DD's diamond bracelet that she just got from her father, among other things. Now that we're over the shock, we're counting our blessings. No one was hurt, not even the animals. Nothing was broken or damaged, they only hit half of the house, and our house was not set on fire (like someone else's misfortune we heard about this week.) So, it could have been much worse.

However, it's still a big pain to clean up all the mess (everything pulled out of dressers and cabinets), and the loss of everything including pictures of my late dad on my computer. So, since I don't have a camera or computer right now, it will be awhile until I post anything on my blog.

I did finish a simple tank out of a brown rayon jersey knit and I really like it. I used Pamela's Patterns twinset. Be Careful if you make this pattern - it has 1/4 inch seam allowances.

Such a drag but, as you said, everyone is safe. I hope you are back in the groove soon.

I'm so, so sorry! Glad that no one was hurt, but still - what an invasion and expensive frustration. {{Hugs}}

So sorry to hear about the burglary - we've had that happen twice and it is such a feeling of violation. Things can be replaced, however it is hard to lose items that have special meaning to you. -

What a terrible thing to have happen. Long ago, we had a similar experience--except we were young and had few items of value. It's just that feeling of violation...

Take care!

I am so very sorry -- I hope you are able to recover the irreplaceable things, like the pictures of your Dad.

That is awful-I hope you are all taking good care of yourselves and finding ways to restore a feeling of security. I am so sorry this happened to you.

Summerset said...

Oh, that's not good at all. At least you and your family are safe, but still, that it hard to take.

I am so sorry to hear of this. Best wishes as you recover from the invasion and (it is hoped) recover some of the monetary value through insurance.
