Invasion~

Well we had to come home from our trip early.
We had a break-in. Robbed. Burgled.
grrr.
They took things that were more sentimental than valuable, oh yeh, and our CAR.
But most of all they took our sense of security and safety, but not forever.
Over all it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
My biggest concern was for my CATS. But they are fine.
Ezmaralda gave me a lecture when I got home. She was not happy about us leaving OR the break-in! Rufus was his usual doofus self.
Xena was in the doggie-spa (aka kennel).

Next trip we will hire a house sitter. Like Rambo or She-Ra or someone scary.

For now we are regrouping and hugging and making ourselves feel safe again.

Lessons learned?
We realize our connection to our material things is at a place we feel is very healthy.
and... we learned how strong we are.
Our nest is sacred to us, and no one can steal that.

HUGS. I am looking forward to seeing you tomorrow and am still floored/sick about what happened. I've been thinking of you all and sending you safe/happy thoughts...

I am so sorry to hear this.

My apartment was robbed 3 times in 2 years. It was so devastating. We came back from an aunt's funeral and found the apartment one time.

It feels so depressing - but then you realize that it is just things and that thank goodness no one was there.

Leaving for the falls tomorrow. We tell very few that we are going, but even less now! I will lock up extra tight, but you are right... just things. Our real treasures will be at grandmas and in our heart. Sorry for the violation...icky. Love the puppy, we are awaiting fainting goats on the 17th! Miss you, Hope to see you again! Love you.!
