david stayed up all night on the couch with a golf club in his hand. love that man. the guy smashed the window on the door that goes into our kitchen and instantly opened the lock and gained access to our house. i can't believe someone with such ill intent was IN MY HOUSE trying to violate us. i bolted awake and david's feet hit the floor running. i thought there was a 50/50 chance that we had just heard a loud noise and were being paranoid until i heard david shouting "HEY! GET OUT OF HERE!" etc. i was frozen with terror and just wanted to gather the kids under my wings and hide. david never saw anyone in the house but the back door was swinging open. what kind of fool breaks into a home during a snow storm!? it is that question that kept me tossing and turning. was he high? was he targeting us for some specific reason? would he come back? logic told me that at least the first one was probable but not the others but gesh, worst nights sleep ever. david screwed the door shut with some wood and kept vigil over the house on the couch. have i got a good man or what?! after we called the police but before they arrived i looked out the front window and saw someone walking. color me paranoid but i strongly believe it was our would-be burglar. first, he was seriously underdressed (wearing just a hooded sweatshirt in a snowstorm). also, who goes for a ginger little walk at 1:30 am? and when i threw open the door and stood outside giving him the "I SEE YOU A-HOLE" face he practically ran to his car, started it, and flew out of here. when the police arrived, in less than 3 minutes ill add! the detective said he saw the same guy two streets over and thought he looked very suspicious. tracks in the snow show that he probably looked through the little crack between our curtains in the front room and saw our laptop, wii, rockband gear, and camera in the front room and made his choice from that. WHAT A NIGHT
it is a beautiful day out, snowy and bright and all reason tells me to go out and enjoy it, maybe go sledding or something but im so paranoid to leave. i can't bear the idea of leaving the house vulnerable to another break in. at least we can play in the yard i suppose. someone from our landlord's office came by to assess the damage and later they are coming to replace the window and put a new lock in, one near the floor that can't be accessed by breaking a window.
