Last night was the first time in the past 5 days that I was able to sleep through the night. It started off with a shaky start to falling asleep and then I couldn’t wake up this morning. I finally got a fire escape gate put up in the window and let me tell you ain’t nobody
coming through that window again. If they were to still try and come in through the gate the banging would make so much noise that it would alert someone.
I still am a little wary because I haven’t changed the locks on the front door, but I am not as nervous about that because the door didn’t look like someone had tampered with it, but I still plan on getting it done. My sister and her boyfriend are going to come down this weekend and maybe he can put it in for me. I think my sister’s boyfriend is a little crazy sometimes. He does something with the police. He calls me to tells me, with a sincere voice, that he wants to show me some self defense moves, but more important how to kill someone who tries to attack me. OKAY, I don’t think it’s that serious, but hey it won’t hurt to know.
During this whole ordeal I have managed to lose 7 pounds over the last 4 days. It’s such a tease because I know I will gain it all back. I lost the weight not because I have been trying. I haven’t gone to the gym and I’ve been eating badly just not excessively. My mother says that it’s my nerves. And here I thought I had nerves of steal…lol.
Things will get better, I know. Hopefully the thieves won’t try to come back to finish the job because they didn’t take everything, but most things. They were kind enough to leave my TV and VCR (one is too old and the other is too heavy). I think they got away with about $1600-$1800 worth of electronics and some merchandise. I also don’t think they were too smart, they took the little Coach bag and left the larger Dooney & Burke purse next to it, I can’t get over that one.
Here’s to a better day.
