I’m sorry to place this burden on you, but I really need to vent.
I cannot begin to explain to you how violated I feel. My FI and I are SO good about locking every door, closing every blind, and ensuring that our garage is always down. But, of course, that doesn’t keep out dumb, idiotic people!! No, instead, they take a crowbar to our beautiful French doors, bust them up, and violate us by entering our house. Thank GOD we weren’t at home at the time, and our furbaby was with us. They took some gaming systems and some jewelry, but other than that, nothing. I guess we have that going for us…right?
Here’s the kicker: this is not my first time being robbed. My apartment was ransacked less than 2 years ago. I lost practically everything except my life, and again, I’m SO thankful! BUT, it SUCKS to go through this not just once, but now twice!! When will I catch a break?!? I feel incredibly violated, so much so that my FI and I could not sleep last night. I don’t feel safe in my home 🙁 Not even locks can keep people out nowadays…I don’t know what to do. We’re getting a home security system put in tomorrow, but it’s kind of like closing the barn door after the horse has escaped.
Any suggestions on feeling comfortable in my own home again?
