We came home from our visit up north for Christmas to find that our house had been broken into and someone had removed pretty much every electronic device from our house, and seeing that my husband is a pretty big tech nerd, that was A LOT of stuff. Thankfully we have renters insurance.
Of course there are a lot of feelings surrounding something like this. Who did this to us?
Why? Oh did I mention they came in though my BEDROOM window. Some creepy dude was in the room, where I sleep. Yuck! Will I ever feel safe again? I am still working through a lot of these feelings, but am getting better day by day.
We are doing much better. Honestly friends we are recovering rather quickly. We reminded each other several times over that first week that it was just stuff, and we were both fine, as were our dogs.... oh the dogs.... I get back to that.
Part of the scariness is that we don't think it was totally random. We don't think we knew the people, but we suspect it was someone one was familiar enough with our routine to recognize the dogs were gone, and that even though our car was in the driveway we were not around. It also makes me scared to replace things. Who's to say the same people won't be back in a month to clean us out again.
Friends my advice to you is thus. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE RENTERS INSURANCE. We would be in such a different place with out it.
