Lucky Me

If I didn't have bad luck I would have no luck at all. Our house was broken into today. My husband and son came home and found the front door had been busted in. What was missing you ask? My laptop, my husband's laptop and my son's laptop. Yes, we were a laptop rich family. They also stole my son's PSP. I believe they were startled or something because they left the boy's x-box and broken down wii plus my fancy Olympus camera.

It makes me sick. It is not like we are rich and have disposable income to replace these things. My husband worked like a dog to earn that money to get us those things. It makes me so mad that some lazy ass deadbeat feels they have the right to take what they please. I am sure they are pawning it off to get drugs or booze. It makes my blood boil.

This last two weeks have not been my best. Our main vehicle was totaled by a lady who ran a red light two weeks ago. We are currently waiting for the settlement so we can get a replacement car. We are currently in car limbo. When it rains it pours I guess.

What does all this mean? It means that all I have to do the internet is my phone. So I guess I will have to learn how to insert pictures on this datn thing. " )

Thanks for letting me vent.
Happy Thrifting Everyone!!!


  1. Oh no, I'm really sorry to hear this, there are some truly scummy people out there. The same thing has happened in our neighbourhood recently (South London), our poor neighbours have been burgled twice, via the back doors. It really upsets me that people feel they can just take what they want. I hope you get some better luck soon - a Ming Dynasty vase at Goodwill maybe!

  2. oh no thats terrible, so sorry to hear about the break in. I still cant believe people can think they can get away with doing this. I hope they get caught or get some serious bad karma. Im with Lakota and wishing you lots and lots of good Luck. Scarlett x

  3. :-( So sorry to hear of the rough time you're having, always makes me angry to hear of people who think they have the right to take away things that other people have worked so hard to get.

  4. Oh that's the worst! Theft is such a violating thing. I'm sorry that has happened to you. Sorry about the car too! Ugh. Don't let it get you down, things will get better :-)

  5. I know how you feel and I remember how much I hated the feeling. In the past I have had 2 bikes stolen. And my car broken into twice with the sterio system pulled and everything else. It is the most aggervating feeling EVER!

    I am very sorry this happened. I hope you get some sunshine and luck down on your end in the near future.

  6. Thanks for all your well wishes. We went tonight and signed our lives away (or at least 5 years) for a new Kia Soul (a hamster car). I hope this is the beginning of great things. Like maybe that Ming vase or the motherlode of Pyrex. I got my fingers crossed. " )
