Tis the Season

I'm sure most of you heard about my weekend, but for those of you who haven't -- my house was broken into on Saturday afternoon while Hubs and I were out Christmas shopping.  No one was hurt and nothing was broken, thank goodness.  But whoever did it sure got away with a nice handful of stuff.

  • My brand new laptop
  • Our other laptop that was 5 months old
  • Hubs Xbox
  • Gun that my father gave me
  • Backpack that Hubs had some stuff in
  • Two jewelry boxes
  • Watch I gave Hubs last Christmas
  • Sapphire necklace and ring set from Hubs
  • Pearl necklace and bracelet
  • Horseshoe necklace from friend in Minnesota
  • Sapphire ring from my parents
  • Two dang pillow cases!
From just these items, the Police told us it amounts up to $4,000.

Those are the things we've noticed missing.  There could be more, but I can't remember every single thing that was laying around the house.  I'm not so upset about the stuff, because it's just stuff.  I just feel so violated.  Who ever it was came IN THROUGH MY BEDROOM WINDOW.  He had to have crawled over my bed.  Went throught my underwear drawer.  Now I always feel like we're being watched through our bedroom window.  I'm scared to be home by myself.  That's not a way for anyone to live.

I called my brother (who is a Phoenix Police Officer) once we found out we had been broken into.  He then called a buddy of his that works in my area.  They came out and made a report.  They actually fingerprinted printed this time.  (Last Christmas we were also broken into, but the Police then were not very helpful.)  They got quite a few prints, hopefully one of them matches someone in their database and we can catch the jerk who did this. 

We're going to get out of the neighborhood soon!

Jerks. I hope they OD on the drugs they buy from the loot.

I can't believe people do that, especially around Christmas! I had a friend who's Dad's house was burglarized around Christmas too...they stole the urn with her Mom's ashes in it! Talk about disrespectful! I'm sorry!

Where in town do you live?
