After the party we arrived home and realized we had forgotten to give waterboy a key as he was with friends so my husband didn't lock our car door thinking he would have to go out and retrieve said child. As it turned out he was just a few houses away and so walked home. But the problem and I mean BIG problem was that R forgot that he hadn't locked the car door and so we all went to bed thinking we were all locked up safe and sound. Oh and did I mention that I had gone online before bed just to check my email and unwind after party placing my laptop on the floor next to my chair as I always do. And btw my chair sits right by our xmas tree and our first floor living room is adjacent to the master bedroom all on the main level of our house.
So here is where the storey gets dicey. We woke up a bit late the following morning, my husband first and I here him say in an a sort of frantic tone. "Baby, I think we've been robbed." I ask him how he knows this from the bedroom which is only a few feet away. He says fairly calmly "because your laptop is gone and so are most of our xmas presents." At this point I cannot fathom that we are actually having this conversation, but unfortunately we are. And so as we now understand the robbers got into our car, took our garage door opener, quickly opened the door just enough to slide under came into our house while we sleeping a few feet away, took my laptop and the power cord, and all of the xmas presents that looked like they might contain ipods. In fact they got two. Then they slid back out the way they came. We never heard a thing. How scary is that??
Now you might question where we live. But no, we live in an outstanding neighborhood with great neighbors and very nice new homes. We have learned that there have been a rash of such robberies in our area and several of them have also occurred while people were sleeping and the mo has almost consistently been entering via the garage door opener.
So Kstylers the good news is that none of us were hurt. And our insurance will ultimately replace our lost items. But I lost pretty much EVERYTHING on my computer as I had not backed up recently. Devastating from my design and blogging perspective. I had thousands of resource files and well you know how it is. So it will be awhile before I am up to blogging snuff. I do have my new computer but no photoshop yet and I haven't even begun to replace the resource files so important to blogging. So hang in there with me. And please lock your cars at night and your doors during the day. talk soon, k
