Sorry for the Absence...

A couple of weeks ago I came home from bible study to find both of our laptops and our TV stolen.  Both me and my husband do a lot of work on our computers so this has been really devastating for both of us.  I am writing this from the computer lab at my school, I have been coming here several days a week to do my schoolwork.  Not the ideal situation, but at least it is here. 

I will hopefully be back up and blogging again next month, but I just wanted to pop on here and let everyone know I am indeed still alive :)

Hope everyone has been doing well and I so miss reading all my favorite blogs (it just isn't the same on my iphone...)  I have had to do a couple projects with instructions from my phone and while I am glad I have it...I absolutely cannot wait till I have a new laptop!

I also wanted to mention how important it is to KNOW YOUR NEIGHBORS.  We have a fairly successful neighborhood watch in my area and we haven't had any experiences with theft in quite some time.  Soon after the theft at my home our area started seeing auto thefts.  A neighbor a few streets down noticed a neighbor behaving suspiciously and caught him trying to break into her vehicle.  Just as we suspected, we had a criminal actually move in and it is possible this person(s) may be responsible for our theft and others.

Now that being said, I am not saying to watch your neighbors because they are probably criminals, but you really never know and if you do not know your neighbors, you might not know when there is suspicious behavior going on around their house.  We should not be so insulated from the outside that we don't even know our neighbor's names, it is absolutely essential to having a safe community.

So everyone stay safe and get to know the people around you, you never know, you might make some great friends!

Glad to see you back. So sorry to hear about what happened. I know it dampers your ability for schoolwork, blogging, research, work, etc; howevever; did you submit a claim to your homeowners' insurance? I realize sometimes the deductible could be higher than your loss value, but it's just a thought.

We did submit a claim with our insurance company and are getting back a good amount despite our deductible. Thank Jesus for that at least!
