Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?

  4. oh - so sorry...how crappy. I guess the bright side is at least no one was physically hurt or scared out of their mind by the bad guys.

  6. That is so sad! I seriously don't understand why people do such things.

    Some time ago, my cd player was stolen out of my car. I had left the doors unlocked as well...I just felt like such a dummy! But...it's something that can happen to anyone. Don't feel too bad. At least they didn't take the car!

  7. OH NO!

    I would still call the police...just to cover all of you bases.

    My bicycle was stolen about a year ago because I forgot to lock it back up...I called the police anyway, and yes I got the lecture...but they found my $700 bicycle!

  8. It just makes you feel violated. Someone stole my husbands pressure washer a couple of months ago...so I know how you feel. This is a crazy world that we will live...what happen to the days where you could leave your house and not lock the door??

  10. That happened to my family once a long time ago. Our car was taken by the valet in the city and my sister and I left our brand new gameboys (they are old school compared to the DS!) we got for christmas the night before and we had like 20 games also. it stinks! I have a bad habit of not locking my car at night and I park it on the street also, i'm surprised noone has torn it apart yet!

  18. I found you over at the Pink Cupcake. First of all, I'm sorry that happened to you and your son! What a shame! :( On a lighter note though, I just wanted to leave a comment about how cute your blog is! Love the banner! Hope you guys find the criminals who stole from you! God bless and take care!

  19. Ugh. I'm so sorry to hear about the theft! It's horrible to think that your space has been invaded that way! I had been on a get-a-dog kick after the last round of burglaries, b/c I had called our local PD and they said that dogs actually do deter break-ins. Did little Southern Puppy seem weird that night? At any rate, I'm sorry!!! Jay would be at a loss w/out his DS! In fact I'm pretty sure he would demand we march right over to Target to find a replacement! Sad.

  20. oh that's so frustrating! In our town, people have been stealing car keys out of the lockers at the gym and then going out to the parking lot and hitting the key fob until they find the right car - and then they clean you out! I guess in these hard economic times, you can't be too careful. Glad there weren't other things in your car!

  21. I am so sorry this happens! I just can't stand when people steal! It is so frustrating!!!!

  22. Oh no! I don't know how Niko would survive without the DS. Criminals make me so mad. I hope Hubs catches 'em.

    ReplyDelete
  23. ohhh I am so sorry that happened! definitely call the police, i don't think you should get a lecture =)! I hope they get 'em!!

  24. I've heard that about the crime rate to, its so sad. I am really sorry you guys got hit!

  25. I'm sorry your little guy lost his DS to thieves but like you said it is the times. Crime rate is soaring...Here we have had a rash of people stealing your groceries out of the back of your car while you are trying to get them in the house. Police are telling everyone to lock the back up between trips from the car to the house..It's a sad time we live in right now.

  26. ugh! I can totally relate to this! I had a package that was taken off my front doorstep a few days ago, because I get home late from work and the mailman comes around 3pm. So frustrating. I am so sorry!

  27. I'm sorry! This recently happened to my husband and luckily there wasn't much taken; however, it is an uneasy feeling to know that someone went though your belongings.

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
