Status update
 Lisa and I are heading home right now, to clean up the mess. 

We were robbed yesterday, and it's not pretty. Thieves broke in and stole electronics, cash and alcohol, as well as several prescriptions and jewelry, and some other sentimental items (as far as we can tell right now). Since my main cell phone is broken, (and the other one I had was stolen), if anyone needs to reach me, they need to call Lisa's cell phone number.

I'll post again when I can, but it may not be for a while -- we think that one of the things that was stolen was our cable modem (along with my laptop), so there will be no home connectivity for me for a while.

I'm okay, Lisa's okay, and Sugar (our cat) is spooked but okay.  We just need to clean up the mess, and all the broken glass.

More later.  **Hugs*  especially to our good friends, who have been (and are) there for us.  The support is much appreciated.

The State of the Cranium is: : aggravated aggravated

Thank you for the support. Yes, it sucks. Some days (hours?) are better than others, and some are just better if I can go be in a quiet place and cry. Still not sure what this is all about, but 'the only way out is thru,' eh?

**hugs** Thanks.

i've been broken in 3 times.
first was the worst loss, third was the most invasive (in my bedroom, took mah dead mothers jewels...such as they were).

your anger is very understandable. it is important.
violence is another thing but if it's what we are raised with, it runs as a default.

keep breathing.

i am thinking of you.

*breathes in* *breathes out*

That helps. The weird crying thing is hard to cope with, but it's getting better. The 'being a geek without my geek toys' is not fun, but is reminding me just how spoiled my silly US-citizen-butt is.

A Zen moment? Perhaps.

it's a lot to grieve. not just the toys, the security, the face-to-face with your feelings/self.
it's a lot.

Oh honey, that sucks. Do either of you have renters insurance? And can you use this as leverage to insist your landlord installs a security system?
loba From: loba Date: June 24th, 2008 11:36 pm (UTC) (This Entry)
Thanks. **hugs**

Nope. No renters' insurance -- apparently the Universe thinks we have 'too much stuff' and is helping us out with it. < /sarcasm >

And yes, we may be insisting soon on either a) an alarm system, or b) a LARGE dog. We'll see how long it takes them to replace the boarded-up winmdows and door with real replacements.
