It might be quite around here for a while...

I will not be able to post and haven't been able to post on the blog due to my home being burglarized recently. This being more of a home and decorating type of blog, I assume that just about everyone that reads this loves their home as much I do.
We came home from a little thrifting afternoon out, to find our world upside down. It was about 3:30 in the afternoon, and my husband was unable to push our front door open, when he finally did, he noticed one of our chairs had been lodged up against it. The fridge door was wide open and the house was destroyed. From examination at the front door, we thought that there were two dogs about to be in big trouble.
My husband took one more step into the house, and found our TVs and his guitars laying in the kitchen floor. And then he turned to me and said we'd be robbed. We ran to the neighbors and then dialed 911 from my cell. The arrived in what seemed like 30 seconds, 6 cop cars, not even taking the time to park, police jumped out and pulled guns and began to walk around the house. We didn't even think about the fact that we may have just walked in on them.
To shorten up the story some, after a couple of hours, when me and my son were aloud back into the house, I felt so sad and then so mad. This has been going on since the burglary.
I wanted to start cleaning right away, and remove every reminder of the awful incident, from my home, but I just couldn't believe the mess. It was mostly food that they cleared from the fridge and pantry, to throw out for our dogs. And If you weren't aware we have a 95lb. Pit Bull and a chihuahua with a pretty big bark. We believe they pulled a drape from the basement to throw over the dogs until they could empty the fridge out on my cowhide rug for them.(orange juice? really? you took the time to empty a gallon of orange juice out on the floor so that after the dogs ate the 5lbs of leftover pasta con broccoli and three bags of cereal and the cheese and salsa you also through out for them, if they got thirsty they could just lick up the puddle of juice?) Anyway, back to the point, I went for my camera, to capture the mess that was my house, and of course my camera was stolen. Our computers, gone. At this point I really don't have much to update the blog with, besides this story. All of my photos are gone, personal and blog inspiration.
So, it might be awhile, before blog post resume. I will try to stay caught up on others'blogs, and maybe a little c-list here and there. But for now I will be a little disconnected, until we can pick up the pieces.

  1. I am so heart broken for you guys! I would be shattered if my home was ransacked like that. I'm glad you guys are safe and that the pups are safe as well. I hope they catch those jerks and that you are able to return to a sense of normalcy.

  2. Holy Sh*t...

    That really sucks. If there is anything Mr. Modtomic can do to help, let me know. It's tough to believe that anybody would break into your home with that Giant Dog in there. I'm glad you didn't REALLY walk in on them. THAT is some Scary Stuff right there.

    On a brighter note, I have a Nightmare Before Christmas Party Invitation laying on my coffee table waiting for me to deliver it to you! I'm hoping you can be available Dec. 4th.

  3. Huh, get this, I just went out to my car to get my camera which I used earlier today and stuck under the seat. In my driveway while I'm home and awake, someone went through the glove box! Like just NOW! I think my girlfriend might have scared them off by going outside to smoke. F*cking Thieves. If it were a perfect world, they'd have their hands cut off.

  4. My friend! I am so horrified to hear this! I am so sorry! I wish I could do more than just let you know I'm thinking about you and sending you hugs. And I hope they catch those assholes!

  5. Thank you all for all of the kind comments,it is so wonderful to have all of the good thoughts sent our way. I myself would also feel better knowing these people were caught, because right now anyone that walks past my house now, I assume it could be them, then I give them the stink eye just so that if it was the person that destoryed my house they will then know that I know and they aren't going to get away with it. And really it just makes me look the crazy mad lady! So I am hoping to return to smiles to strangers at some point soon.
    Mr. Modtomic do not leave your camera in your car! don't leave anything in your car! Our friend kim had the same thing done in her driveway. We also recently had belongings stolen out of our car, including my husbands work keys, so he had a fun time changing the locks to the restaurants.

  9. Have you checked Craigslist postings in your area? It wouldn't surprise me if some of your stuff ended up on there.

  12. Thank you so much for the healing wishes, and for all of the sweet thoughts. We are all well and that i as the most important thing. It is easy to get caught up in the moment and be mad at what you've lost, but anything that we've lost is very small compared to what we still have.
