A Robbery and No Pictures.

Good Morning friends. I've been completely missing in action due to some slight technical difficulties. Those difficulties are called, two robbers broke into my house and stole my laptop difficulties. Last week, I returned home from a few errands with Eli and we headed in the front door while two robbers headed out the back door. It scared my pants off, but we are all safe and okay, and thankfully, they only made it out with good ole' STUFF. They stole my laptop (otherwise known as my daily connection to the outside world) and with it took EVERY baby picture and video I've ever taken of my sweet babe. I'm glad in times like these I have stayed up to date in ordering pictures and blogged about them, however, I didn't ever transfer the videos to a dvd, so I'm afraid all my baby videos are gone, and that breaks my heart. I remind myself that I still have the real thing here in my house, and that's one million times better than home videos. :)

Just wanted to let you all know why I'm not here and why I won't be for awhile. No pictures to go with this post unfortunately. I hope those two thieving kids enjoy all my home videos.

P.S. Two very nice policeman knocked on my door at SIX this morning to let me know they caught the guys last night. They said they didn't find my laptop, but we're glad they are now in custody.

P.P.S. Don't worry, the alarm system is already in progress. Hope y'alls week has gone better than ours! :)


  1. So sorry, Jane! SO I'm guessing they didn't get your camera since you didn't mention that. I hope not! Anyway, hopefully they will have to pay restitution and you can buy a new computer. Our robber had to pay us restitution and it was quite a bit more than the value of what he stole. :)

  2. Oh Jane. I know you have been through the ringer. And even if they can pay you back, you can never get that footage. But man, I love your perspective on all of it. It helps me to always think of how it could have been worse. And I love to hear you say that you are thankful to have "the real thing" in your house and that you guys are safe. I am thankful for security systems, but isn't it a blessing to know that all of this "stuff" will fade away, and in the grand scheme of things, our "stuff" is just that. I look forward to seeing new pictures when that time comes.
