In between the time I left yesterday morning and the time DH got home from work (about an hour) we were robbed. The solid wood door and dead bolt did its job and held securely. BUT the door frame did not. It had to take a quite a few strong kicks to break down the door frame. Shattered is a good word to describe the door frame. It was inside and outside the house.
DH called me while I was at Walmart doing some Christmas and grocery shopping. Needless to say, I paid for what was in my cart and rushed home. I did not want to believe this could happen to us but it did. I am very thankful my cats were ok.
DH had a friend who is a carpenter come over and patch up the door frame so the house could be secured.
My lack of Christmas Spirit this year is now worse. What is wrong with people who rob others and think it is ok? To invade another persons santuary is just wrong.
I will force myself later today to put out some Christmas decorations in an effort to improve my spirit. I write this in part as therapy and as a warning to others. Make sure your house and other buildings are as secure as possible.
A quilty post will follow later today...
