Some days

Some days are not as good as others. Today was such a day, one I could have done without. Valentine's here in our house was shocking and depressing. Anyone who has even had anything taken or stolen from them will understand.

It's been a difficult past few years and truly it takes an awful lot to fill my plate to the point where I become angry or upset. I'm a "the glass is half full" sort of person and an eternal optimist. Well, today I would like to take said glass and smack someone up side the head with it ~ except I don't know who.

Some time between midnight last night and this morning my husband's truck, tools and equipment were stolen from our driveway. First comes surprise, then shock and by tonight the enraged and angered feelings of invasion and lack of security and safety. Don's truck is a big diesel workhorse. Had it been started in our driveway we would have heard it as it wakes us all up when Don leaves early. We have 3 big dogs loose in the house that would have barked had the truck ignition been turned over. Police believe it was likely pushed out of the driveway and taken away on a trailer. That makes this a calculated theft and not a random act. More then the vehicle, Don's tools and possession that were locked in the truck are a major blow for us.

Some days I wish were different. Sorry for venting.

That completely sucks. I'm so sorry. We've had our garage burglarized a couple of times, and the anger and sense of violation is tremendous. I hope the police find the truck.

don't apologize! that is a big loss and so senseless! we have only had a couple of bikes stolen, but it is not easy! hopefully it ends well.

It's hard not to be outraged when something like this happens because it is almost beyond comprehension that we share the earth with people who have no respect for their fellow man. It is shocking to have that reality demonstrated right in your own driveway. I'm so sorry something crappy like this happened to you and Don.

ughhhhhh that is sooooo disgusting!
I hope the truck is found and the thief gets whats coming to him.
Do you have everything insured??

jillian said...

Ohhhhhh no! You must feel so invaded. I'm so sorry. I hope they find your property and the thiefs!

Renee said...

We do have insurance on the vehicle and I'm not sure how much would cover the content ~ so now we wait and see what happens. The hope that it's found and not trashed or chopped and the contents aren't missing is there, although not likely.

Thank you everyone for listening to my rants, venting helps.

Hugs,
Renee

Totally sucks! And no matter how much is covered, the inconvenience of having to get a new truck and replace the tools is significant. I am keeping you in my thoughts. I've been working lately on finding a long-term positive meaning for everything that happens. It will be good when you realize the one to come from this that you share, because I need the good examples. :)

Oh I am so so sorry, how terrible, I'm glad you are all safe and hope that nothing like this happens again.

Thank you for the kind comment!

Oh, how awful for you both! I'm so sorry this happened to you.

What can be said about something so rotten happening. I'm so very sorry.

Some people are just plain rotten. I hope this all works out for you and everything is found really soon. Go hug a doggie and hopefully you'll feel better.

peaknits said...

I'm a probation agent, so I supervise the people that get caught for such things - and their total lack of respect never ceases to amaze me. I am so sorry. Take care.

Celestial said...

Oh honey I am so very sorry. At least you are all safe, and so are the dogs. I'll be praying for you.

And remember fluffy pillows are great for screaming into!

Margene said...

You deserve to vent. It's such a blow, a huge loss to your family. I pray they can recover it.

PrincessPea said...

So sorry to hear this. I hate that there are people who think it is ok to steal from others. I hope you get your stuff back and/or that your insurance company pay out quickly for you.

ugh. that is horrible. i'm so sorry. we got robbed one time. our (rental) vehicle got broken into. we were on vacation. they stole some video games we had along with us. there was glass shards all over my son's carseat. it was sickening. and we felt so violated. just awful.

i hope it all works out in the end.

Sheila said...

That's just terrible. We had bikes stolen out of our garage one night and it felt like a violation of our home. And your husband's tools were in the truck. I'm so sorry.

Philigry said...

oh my gosh! I am so sorry. that is truely awful, and i would feel the same way. my husband owns his own biz. and has a big work truck as well. he would be devistated if that happened to all of his tolls etc. i hope they are able to get at least some of the stuff back. i would be feeling the same way. I am glad you were able to vent, and hope it helped a bit.
Keep us posted!

Oh my goodness!! I am so sorry. That is a terrible violation! Don't apologize for ranting, I say rant away....we'll listen!

t does wool said...

oh,Renee,that's so awful...so sorry to hear this.

JoAnn said...

Wow - they have some balls! Sorry for your loss and downer of a weekend - something that should have been happy and loving. I hope your recovery efforts are successful.

randi said...

I am visiting for the first time, but I want to say that i am sorry this happened to you. My husband had all of the windows/mirrors broken on his truck a while ago ($2.000 damage!) and it took me a while to get over it and feel safe again. Life stinks sometimes!

Jenny said...

My first visit too and I just wanted to say how sorry I was about your loss. In time you will feel a little better, ranting helps, but lets hope at least you get the vehicle back and the thieves are punished

Wow, so sorry to hear this! Been there and I know how you feel, it stinks! Again, sorry and I hope for a good outcome for you!

amanda said...

Oh Renee...I'm so sorry. What a horrible, horrible weekend. You must be so angry!

Knitterella said...

That is awful. I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't understand people sometimes. Disgusting!

I'm sorry.

Hope the police find the thieves and recover what's yours.
