Guess I shouldn't have blogged about those hunters getting wiped out a couple of weeks ago. Jeez.
I came home from work yesterday, unlocked my front door, went to go pee and noticed that our house was . . . amiss. They didn't ransack the place as bad as they did last time so I'm guessing they remembered where we kept our valuables. HA! We don't have the $$ to replace anything they stole last time so their search was pretty fruitless and they moved on to what they considered second string items. And some weird shit, some really weird shit.
My guitar, beautiful acoustic/electric guitar and about $500.00 in Chino's tools. They took a couple of pictures in frames off of our wall but I don't think actually TOOK them, I actually found two of them on the floor behind the couch and strangely enough found one of them in my kitchen propped up carefully against a cake I made for Chino. It was a picture of his cousin and her baby from like 2.5 years ago and I have NO idea what they were doing with it. Also in the kitchen they took out some chicken from the freezer and left it to thaw on the counter (How thoughtful.)
We also found in our spare room 5 containers of yogurt that they took from the fridge and I guess forgot - lol - and a generic grape pop. We had a six pack of coke but I guess they liked grape - but not enough to remember to actually TAKE it.
Last time we were robbed in this house it was because we didn't have bars on our air conditioner unit and they just came on through by pushing in the air conditioner. We had bars put on, installed dead bolts on our metal front door and chino put FIVE locks on our more flimsy wood door in the kitchen. So? SOO they brought a blow torch and a hack saw and cut the damn bars off the window on the side of our house. We can't compete with a blow torch. Just. . . nope.
It looks like they were going to steal our hot water heater as well - they were polite enough to shut off the water to our house (the gas as well) and cut off one of the metal pipes going from the heater to the house but then stopped for some reason and left it.
My violin case in the house was empty and I was devastated over that. I've been playing since the 5th grade and own a lovely violin that I would I'm pretty sure we'd never be able to replace in the $$ sense, let alone in the sentimental. BUT, bright spot, it looks like when they climbed over the wall of our house they dropped it and left it behind. I found it behind our house on the ground without a scratch and that's one heck of a blessing.
LOL I applied for and was granted WIC last week and before I left they gave me a WIC tabled backpack. They robbers stole that as well. Nice, I mean really? FYI I qualify for WIC because I am still an American citizen and I still work in the U.S. ALSO even with Chino's paycheck (and me working 40 hours a week) we still fall below the poverty line and qualify so please don't think I'm some sort of government leach, I wouldn't be able to stand that, so please, don't. I actually had to do the math on how much he brings home for that and I saw why I never had before. He worked 56 hours last week and brought home $76.00 in U.S. dollars. I don't tell you that as another big boo-hoo for me but to make sure you know exactly why I'm receiving WIC.
Moving on. Our Chihuahua was safe and sound and our cats too (damn it why won't anybody steal my cats?) they left the TV so that's cool. After last time when they stole my laptop I now cart my new one to work with me everyday and my digital camera as well. ALSO I can't wear my diamond ring anymore (prego-fingers) but I never leave it at home - just-in-case - and we never leave money in the house anymore so HA HA HA I can still blog.
Last time they left behind the tape measure they brought to measure if items were small enough to get out the window and this time - lo and behold they left behind some stuff as well. It's weird, they brought a water shut-off valve and a water spigot that looks like they sawed off from somebody else's yard. We found them behind the house and can only assume they had some pretty detailed plans for stealing our water heater. Fricken strange.
I'm not crying and all freaked out this time, I'm think I'm as used to this as a person can be considering I've been robbed 5 times in Michigan and now 3 in Mexico. I'm a friggin pro.
I'm bummed about my guitar, I had taken to putting it on my side due to the gigantic belly and playing Daisy songs and singing to her. :P Talk about a captive audience. Haaaaa. But well, I can't get a new one so maybe she'll get some more sleep.
OOO!! I saved the best for last! Along with the pictures, yogurt, chicken, pop, kitchen knife, and violin that they meant to steal but instead left laying around the house in odd places - they also meant to steal 5 pairs of my thong underwear. They picked out my prettiest underpants, wadded them up to take but forgot and left behind in Daisy's stroller. What. The. HHHHEEEEEELLLL. I think I was robbed by a hungry-Alzheimer'd-perverted retard. What else could it be?
Here's your Halloween twist - when I came home yesterday there was one of my leetle friends (one of the stalker black birds) dead next to our gate door. I'm sure it was my cats but try explaining that to a flock of pissed off birds. They've always stayed away from our house either across the street or in the neighbors trees but yesterday about 100 of them crossed over and came to land on my fence, the wires above my yard and all over the ground so they could stare in at me through the window and caw and bitch and make some other weird noises to show me how pissed they were about their comrade.
No, I don't think we were robbed because we pissed off the crazy stalker birds but come on, it was a pretty good coincidence and mixed with them caw cawwww'ing at me through the window - well damn that's enough to give anybody the willies.
SO! Wish us luck this weekend as we look for a new house. Like I said we can't compete with blow torches and saws so we've just got to go somewhere else. Bye bye birdie!
Now, if you'll please lets all skip the So Sorry's (much easier that way and nobody has to feel wierd :P ) and make fun of my retarded robber. Thank You. ;)
