Since my computer was gone and I didn't have a reliable backup, I'm gonna vent now. (we got a new laptop yesterday)

I was out with my BFF Candace for lunch and was gone maybe 3 1/2 hours. When I got back to my apartment, the door was wide open (kicked in I guess), my dog was barking and going crazy. I knew immideatly what had happend..Got broken into AGAIN!!! This was the second time in three years at the same place. Last time, it wasn't as bad.

But this time it was personal. Really personal. They took my laptop. I'm using this laptop on a daily basis. It's the best way to stay in touch with my parents in Germany, since they can see my daughter with a webcam. It had all of my pics from the last six months on it and I don't have a backup (never got around to it, could kick myself for it).

In the end, they stole my DH Lord of the Rings DVD's and Star Wars Trilogy DVD Sets, my laptop, the headphones for our stereo, my kitchenscale and all of the meat out of the freezer. Yep. you read it right. They cleaned out my freezer! I was just standing in front of it and was laughing. I mean, the freezer???? They did do me a favor with it, though, since I got a new shipment of frozen meat in on Saturday. At least I had space now. lol Thank God we have insurance and they will replace all of the stolen items or give us a check. Best $23 a month I've ever spent.

The cops weren't really helpfull, but I didn't expect them to be anyway. Nothing they can do. My apartmentmaintanence was out in full force (all 4 of them at the end of the day) to fix our door. I just hope it will be enough until we can get out of here. I'm not staying here longer than I have to. We're getting a house and hope to be pre-approved by the end of the week.

Well, I'm off. Need to make some phonecalls to the cops and insurance company.
