We Were Robbed

This past weekend someone broke into our house while we were away.

We hear about these things all the time, and robberies like this are especially common here, but I was surprised by three things:

1. My own attachment to things. They were just things, but they were my things.

2. My own shock when we discovered the thief. Should we be surprised by the deceitfulness of man? After all, "we have met the enemy, and he is us."

Things stolen: iPod, 2 cell phones, solar lantern, frozen chicken (?!), one bra (?!?) and $500 cash.

3. The local police are using GPS technology to track the phone that was stolen and arrest the user!

GPS technology???? Where did they get that?

I'm sorry to hear that, but it's somehow sad and funny, the randomness of the chiken and the bra in this list made me laugh and sad at the same time.

And I can understand the first point, I'd rather give all my things to someone instead of being stolen..

Sorry! I know how violating it can be to have things taken from you. It is crazy. Just keep reminding yourself that no matter what significance or value things have, they can be replaced.

So sorry to hear about the theft! It is so discouraging! We have been there and it is tough to continue, but it seems like you have the right attitude - it is only stuff! When our house was broken into we had to laugh a bit because everything they stole was broken!

I hate to say this but do you think it could have been one of your "former employees"?
