The last time I posted was 10 days ago and I feel like you all deserve an explanation for my absence. I know we never just chat here, so if you’re not interested in this, go ahead and move on to a different post. The winner of my birthday giveaway will be announced Monday, July 31 on Instagram and then we will resume business as usual. Here’s some pretties to hold you over until then.
On the night of my last post (July 19) around 3:00 a.m., my husband heard a loud noise and woke up thinking someone was in our house. He searched the entire house and found nothing, so he came back to bed. In the morning, he went outside to find that someone had stolen some things from out front. My husband is a landscaper and the thief stole some of his most expensive equipment that we had just purchased. For the next few days, we kept our eyes peeled on buy/sell/trade websites for the items, with no luck. Finally, he called the police and reported the items stolen. The officer checked pawn shop inventories and, as luck had it, someone had just pawned our items that morning, along with other things that people around our neighborhood were missing. The thief is a teenager, maybe 18 or 19 years old. We were shown a picture but don’t recognize him. The police said they would let us know what was going on with finding him, but so far we haven’t heard anything.
Now, what does this have to do with me posting? Ever since it happened, I’ve been having a hard time sleeping. I’m not necessarily afraid; I just don’t want it to happen again. I wake up and walk across the hall to look out the window, and then can’t fall back asleep for a while.
So that’s what’s going on in my life. I hope no one has run off while I’ve been dealing with all of this. I did just make a switch in blogging platforms, and decided to revamp the website at the same time, so I’m hoping you all like the change. I’m getting back on track with my posts as of this weekend, promise! Thank you for sticking by me and, as always, I appreciate every one of you!
