Ok I am still a little down in the dumps since the break in at our house April 13th. We finally got all the stolen items listed and turned into our insurance company. It was a really long list and when we totaled it up the number was larger than we expected. We hope they give us at least half of the money back for the stolen items.
For me all I want at this point is to be able to buy a new tv (We went from a 40" flat screen to a 24" box..yuck) and get the boys a new Wii and Ds's. That is what infuriates me the most is that they took things from my boys. Yes, I lost a lot of heirloom, vintage family jewelry, but they didn't take the memories of those wonderful people. In the long run, as an adult, I know it is just stuff. But they did take things from my children, who at the ages of 6 & 9 lost stuff that was important to them, stuff that Santa had brought them and for me that is maddening.... I just want to get it replaced so that the boys can feel some sort of normalcy.
The alarm company put in the alarm in yesterday and I let the boys stay home from school to watch them put it in. They asked lots of questions and felt much safer once the alarm was installed.
I am taking a more comprehensive list to the police today, so they might recover some things in the future. At this point I am ok with not getting my things back, or at least knowing that the chances are very slim. I am ready to move on and stop letting it affect me. To stop being angry and worried, because that is not who I am or want to be.
On the positive side I have a dr. appt next week ( I will be 8 weeks by then) and I am looking forward to seeing what the doctor says about this baby. I know I am pregnant, and have the swollen, sore boobs (TMI sorry
) and queasiness to go along with it, but I will feel so much better to talk with the doctor and get more information from him. I think I will have an ultrasound and maybe listen to the heartbeat...I don't remember...it has been nearly 7 years since I was pregnant last. I guess I will worry a bit until I get the dr's take on it all. Is that normal??
Looking forward to the crop this weekend. I am hoping it drags me out of my funk... I need to print some pictures, clean up my space, and figure out what to do about entertainment while I am scrapping since my little tv got moved upstairs.
