We just became first time home owners on September 27th when our home was finally done being built. We have been so happy, this is our forever home and it took awhile to be built, well we had a family emergency occur Tuesday afternoon and we had to leave town. We were alerted at 3am this morning by our security company that our brand new home was broken into. We rushed back home and I am just so depressed, whoever broke in didnt get much thanks to the alarm they did manage to steal our PS3, XBox, about $150 in cash and my wedding ring :(. I was under the impression that my husband had put everything in the safe before we left but apparently he did not. So now we have to have a window replaced, I just cant believe someone would break in. Nobody knew we had left, we didnt broadcast it on any social media, we left a light on in the kitchen and one in our bedroom on a timer so that they would turn on later in the evening.
Have you ever been victims of a break in? How did you deal with the creepy feeling afterwards? How did you explain it to your kids?
