I’ve Got a Headache
This whole robbery/snake thing is a horrible thing. We haven’t slept well since it happened. The animals are included in that
statement. Both are still jockeying for
position on holding my head on my pillow.
It’s not comfortable.
It’s also not comfortable leaving the house and then
wondering what I’m going to find when I drive up. Steve has put some “steps” in place for
security-but let’s face it-a piece of plywood doesn’t help your feeling of
Poor Pepper, he was playing with a ball and somehow closed
himself in a bedroom. I was calling all
over for him when it was his dinner time-I could hear him crying but it took a
while to find where it was coming from!
Lucky, who is a fixture on my lap as a rule, holds on as if
she’s on by means of Velcro.
Plus, if I have to leave she reverts to the “give up”
position and cries.
Steve’s determined to have us live in Fort Knox. I agree with the security system, I don’t
care about his spray painting the roll-up garage door windows black and I’m on
the fence about putting custom blinds on the 3 small windows that are nearly 7’
in the air. But I don’t like the idea of
putting security grills on the patio doors.
But now I’m also terribly upset about this unsettling event.
We talked it over and we’re going with security doors.
As I said, I’m exhausted from no sleep and I haven’t slept
because of what happened. Some
co-workers of Steve asked how we could stay in the house. Where else would we stay? Right now I’m not feeling all that sure about
how and why we were hit, but it’s still our home. We just need to find a way to put it behind
us and move on.
Sounds easier than it will be to attain. But we’ll get there, all four of us. It will just take a bit of time. One woman we talked to (getting new cards and
paperwork) said that the same had happened to her and her husband. She assured me that it does, in fact, get
I asked her how long it has taken them-seems that the police
found the guy who broke into their home and her husband and mother-in-law were
summoned into court just the week before-once they got him convicted they felt
Something to look forward too.
