I Am Really Bummed Out.
You know how I was saying I couldn't find my camera?
Well, I figured out why yesterday afternoon.
My car was broken into, right in our driveway, and all the small electronic things were taken.
My camera, my iPod, FM transmitter and the new GPS I gave my husband for Christmas are all gone. And who knows what else that I haven't missed yet.
Luckily my purse and new phone were inside the house for once.
I rarely lock my car, and have been in the habit of leaving keys and purse in it for years and years now. We live on a very rarely traveled by car or by foot, dead-end street. So it is probably one of the neighbors or their kids or their friends. I'm suspecting teenagers, by the things that were taken. Which my teenager informs me is ageist. (I suppose so).
This is the first time that I've ever been robbed in my life and I am finding that I feel very very strange and off-balance. A whole bunch of feelings are swirling around.
mad at myself,
feel stupid for being so trusting and lazy for not bringing my stuff in and locking up.
And really really sad because I don't have my favorite thing that I own, my camera.
On Saturday my husband found our neighbor's car registration at the top of our driveway, and heard that his car had been rifled through also.
Now I have to call the police and sheepishly file a report. Yes, they were in my unlocked car. No I didn't notice right away. And I suppose I'll call my insurance and see what our deductible is, I bet it is right around what everything is worth.
