But mostly I'm silent [Apr. 5th, 2011|08:59 pm]

(Bonus points if you catch the reference in the title. Hint: It helps to be older than dirt)

As you may or may not have noticed, I haven't been posting. I've been doing that whole posting-in-my-head thing where I think I'm posting but I'm not. I think I post in my dreams.

I'm posting now, but I don't have anything particular on my mind. On Friday someone kicked in our back door, fortunately while no one was home. You'd think I'd have something to say about that, but strangely enough I don't. It's the third time since we've been in this house that we've been broken into - the first time we actually got burgled, but then we installed the alarm system and the second time (also a back door kick-in) the alarm scared them off. This time I guess it was the combination of the alarm and Molly. Obviously they were amateurs, or they would have cased the house and known we had a dog. Poor Molly was beside herself when the police showed up and they had to call animal control to muzzle her and lock her in the back bathroom until we got to the house. I think she's more traumatized by that than the actual break-in. Husband was offended. We have signs all over saying we have an alarm system he gruffed. Do they think I'm a liar?

In other Molly news, this morning she actually managed to catch a squirrel. It was a glorious moment, given she's a dog who thinks all varmints were placed on the earth as her personal torment. It was also a fleeting moment, as Husband took it away from her. She's still sulking a bit.

Right now I have to go to the gym, so I am spared having to think up anything interesting to say.

I'm sorry you got broken into. That totally stinks. Is that really common where you live? Our apartment was broken into and burgled when we lived in Virginia Beach, about eight years ago, and it really shook me up.

We actually live in a very low-crime area. I'm about 99% sure the first break-in was the kids who used to live across the street from us (the same ones who plowed into my car backing out of the driveway and drove off without stopping).

The other two are scary because they're random crimes of opportunity. We live right on a busy street and our gate is right on the sidewalk, so it's easy for someone to slip into the backyard. We have a padlock on the gate now.

That is scary. I am glad it was just the door they kicked in and nothing else. But...3 times! That completely sucks.
