The end is near!

Repent!! The end is near!

I feel like I will be seeing guys standing on the street corner yelling at us to repent. There have been two, yes TWO earthquakes in Oklahoma this week!! WOW, that's freaky.

I can remember several years ago there was one and we actually felt it at work. It was wierd! It was only a 1 point something I think. THe most recent two have been small also, it's just weird to hear of earthquakes in Oklahoma.

Or maybe the fact that I'm drinking tonight makes it even wierder? *paranoid*

Ha! The losers who broke in to our house have been arrested. It was a man and a woman. They are both being held for $100,000 bond. Obviously they had robbed more than just us. The deputy said they are suspected in robbing houses in many counties around here and even up in to Kansas.

The deputy came by our house Tuesday to show us some pictures of blankets that were found at the house. None of them were ours though. We were all home from work and school because of the ice storm that we had. When the deputy came over this time thank god the house was clean!!! Well, clean for us. I've heard from someone that knows him that he's a complete neat freak so he probably still thought it was bad, but for me it was almost spotless LOL.

Anyway, when he was here talking to dh, brother was fascinated because as he told me in a whisper "mama, I can see his gun". Then when I told him I thought that he had TWO guns, he about fell out of his chair LOL That boy does love guns. Everything he picks up he can turn in to a gun, which is kind of worrying in a way. I will fully expect dh to teach him the safe way to handle a gun when brother's a little older.

Where was I? Oh yeah, the jerkfaces that robbed us are in jail and I doubt if they will be getting out any time soon. $100,000 is a LOT of money, I'm thinking they are in for some serious jail time. Which doesn't hurt my feelings at all.

Mental Block

Monday January 5th I got a call from dh. I was at work by myself and my cell phone rang, it was dh. He says "hey" and I can instantly tell something is wrong. I can always tell when he's upset on the phone and for a split second my mind races back to the day almost 19 years ago when he called me and says "guess dad died today". I was expecting the worst.

It was bad but certainly not the worst. Someone broke in to our house and stole both our brand new flat screen televisions. They broke the window on our back door and got the door unlocked. They came in to our house and took our tv sets. The also dumped out a lock box we have apparently looking for money.....we have no money you idiots!!! We have new tv sets where do you think the money went?

Dh called the sheriff department I left work in a panic. My mind was racing...what else did they take, what did they tear up? I got home and the sheriff was there with dh. Contrary to what it looked like, they did not tear up the house. We managed that on our own. It had been a bad week and the house was a wreck. At the time I didn't care but looking back I'm horribly embarrassed. I just want to invent a reason for the deputy to come back to see my house clean.

As I looked through the house I kept thinking of stuff they might have taken. Two brand new boxes of checks in the computer room...still there. My digital camera laying on the kitchen counter that they walked right by.....still there. My kids rooms...untouched as far as I can tell. The Wii that was right beside the now missing tv......still there.

As we got ready for bed that night dh blanket. Those creeps took the blanket off our bed!!

Even through all this I have remained really calm about it all. I have come to realize I have not let myself think of the actual people that were in my house. I don't know if it was one or two or how many but I haven't/can't let myself go down that road. I know my televisions are gone. And that's as far as I can go. I can't imagine that there were actual strangers in my house touching my stuff....touching my bed. Sometimes that door will crack open and all I can do is slam it shut again. Maybe when they catch the guy(s) (and they are well on their way to doing just that) I'll be able to process it, but until then I keep it blocked out.
