I'm out of town so David went out to eat with his boss and some friends. When he got home he noticed a couple of cats that he thought he'd left inside were outside! Then when he got to the porch he saw some of our stuff laid out on the porch. He thinks he scared the burglers off when he came home. It doesn't look like they got anything but his laptop computer and a small bb pistol that looks real. But they were sure planning on a good haul with the stuff they had laid out! Looks like they kicked the front door in. So David will be taking tomorrow off and calling around to see what he can get in a security system ASAP.
The computer isn't a total loss as it's my old one and he's been talking about getting a new one for himself. Bad thing is we had a file on that computer of all our online accounts. Bank, credit cards, etc. with username and partial passwords. But in his email - also on that computer - were messages where passwords had been emailed to him that had the string of letters/numbers we always put behind those few letters to make our unique passwords. SOOOOO I've been sitting here changing passwords/login info for all our accounts. You can pretty much guess I'm not going to get much sleep tonight. I think someone else besides me will be doing the driving when we head back home in a few hours!
I feel so helpless to be 7 hours away when I know he needs me tonight. And I feel so VIOLATED!!! I've never felt unsafe to be there alone but I'm not sure I'll ever feel safe again. And I'm especially wary since it took the sherrif 40 minutes to get there and that's after telling the neighbor who called for David that "Oh they're probably gone now. Tell him he can go on inside." David called them back and told him he was NOT going inside until they checked it out first since he had no way to know if there was no one still inside.
Guess I should try to get a little sleep. I just needed to vent a little. LOL!
