Anyway, I've decided that I'm giving myself until the end of the workday today to be sad about it and then it's time to move on. (I have a feeling Anger is going to rear her ugly head QUITE SOON. Oh BOY!) I'm still holding out a teensy bit of hope that we might find some of our jewelry and/or watches. I know it's probably a long shot, but at the very least, I doubt they were melted down for metal. I'm checking Craigslist and eBay like it's my job and I'm thinking that I'll start checking the pawn shops soon.
This weekend my parents are coming into town and I couldn't be more excited to see them. They were planning on being here anyway to help paint the front shutters, but now I'm extra glad they're coming. I just need a hug from my mom and dad.
I hope that we'll be able to paint the shutters this weekend and I'm also hoping we might be able to do something about this little situation too, because last I checked, doors aren't supposed to look like this:
Anyway, I'll be back next week, hopefully in a better mood and hopefully with some good Before and After pics to share. Plus, maybe some tips about securing your home and your possessions. We're certainly not experts on that subject, but there are definitely a few things that I wish we'd done differently.
