For some reason, I am in a playful mood today, so I thought I would entertain you with a fun little game. Its called

Now you see it....

and Now you don't! :)

And in case anyone was wondering what a house can look like after its been robbed.....

But I'm grateful.....because it could have been much much worse. And besides, I've learned a lot.
For instance, I always wondered what my dog would do in some kind of emergency. And now I know......ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
I've also learned:
  • locks only keep honest people out
  • don't delete pictures off your camera unless you have a back up copy somewhere safe
  • don't wait to make that back up copy!!
  • bad things don't always happen to "other people"
  • insurance companies always assume you are lying
  • Sometimes having a friendly dog that never barks ISN'T a great thing
  • It could be worse
  • Don't save 4 years worth of loose change in a big bucket with a handle. This makes it very easy for someone to walk out with you vacation fund.
  • apparrently, thieves love posters of Bob Marley as much as my husband did
  • They never steal the things you actually WANT to get rid of.

I think we'll just chalk this up to one of those fun life lessons, and move on. :)


  1. I am so sorry your stuff was stolen. That stinks so bad, but I'm glad you and your little guy are fine.

  2. I love that they took the lamp off of your desk, but not your kitchenaid mixer.

  3. All I can say is at least they left you your bed and clothing. Hope all is going as good as it can and if you need anything let us know. I can't wait to see you guys soon.

  4. That is so crazy. It is interesting to see what they take and what they leave, I mean a toaster but not your mixer? They must not spend much time in the kitchen! Anyway thanks for the tip about the pictures. I actually made a back up copy the other night and took it to my parents house. Hope things are getting back together. We are excited to see you guys over Christmas break.
