Thank you so much for all the support and hugs you sent my way since last night.....it really meant a lot to me. I'm feeling more calm about things today. I was just so upset last night, I think because we can't stay there and keep an eye on things....we both felt very out of control and it was a very unsettling feeling. It helped to vent about it, and thanks for listening and telling me I didn't need to apologize. Whenever I've had a bad day and complained about wanting to get back in my house....I always get an e-mail from, a "well meaning" blogger, mostly someone I don't know, telling me that I need to stop complaining, and they remind me about every person on Earth that lost more than we did, or who doesn't have an apartment to live in, etc. So at times I feel like I can't say what's going on in my life, like I have to be "up" 100% of the time. Thanks for reminding me that everyone has these kind of days, and it doesn't mean I'm self centered or non caring of others plight when I do, nor have I forgotten to be grateful for my blessings. Your gentle hugs made me feel better about letting my feelings out on stressful days.
Okay, here's an update about the break in. A deputy officer came out today and took finger prints & photographs....plus, Marv went along with him as he investigated things and got a better look at things in the day light. What we found was pretty disgusting. Two of our bathrooms had been plumbed last week, no toilets yet, but the holes cut and some of the pipes laid, and whomever was in our house on Saturday night, took a poo in both of the holes....and then jammed it up with paper. I kid you not. So, of course, all of that work has to be pulled out of there and will be redone this week sometime. The Sheriff thinks that "gift" was definitely personal, we just don't know if it was directed at us, or maybe at the guy doing the plumbing. The electric saw that was taken from the house was his, and it was worth around $600. They also took his pole light, and a few other tools he had in the house. In the garage, we know Marv's tool belt and a lot of his tools are gone, plus some personal items of ours from the boxes. They also saw that there were drag marks across the garage floor that led directly to the side door....so he thinks they got out of there with a big item too, we just can't decide what it is right now, we had a lot of things out there. He also agreed that they were definitely coming back for the items they had lined up by the door.....and had Marv not seen the gate open, they would have gotten everything. The lock to that gate was busted right off.....that's how they got that open and into the back yard. It's not a good feeling to think that one of the workers coming into your home may have come back and did that.....or even someone that may have been mad at us for something that happened in our grocery store, but it's probably the case. Who knows.
It stormed here today, so no temporary power lines were installed for security lights, but hopefully that will be done tomorrow. While we are in FL, we have friend who is a deputy for another county who is going to come by every night after the workers have left and inspect the house, inside and out. We are making that known to the builder, too, we want them very aware that our home will not be unattended for the 10 days we are gone.....hopefully that will detour his outsourced workers from removing anything. I will just be glad when it is all done and we are back in to take care of things ourselves!
I was gone most of the day today getting my hair done and running errands, and busy tonight getting some things done for the trip, so of course....I'm behind again in blog reading! If I miss one day....YIKES! I have to take my parents shopping for Emmy's birthday present during the day, but I'll catch up here tomorrow night. Thanks again.....I'm feeling much more relaxed tonight and counting the days off until I see Mandy, just look at that countdown!!!!
