{getting personal}...

as you know...

i typically don't get too personal on this here blog...

but...this is my blog and today i feel the need to do so...

or maybe it would be more appropriate to call it a vent...lucky you.

the last two weeks for my family have been less than stellar.

now...i know that it could be worse...i get that... 

and i thank the lord that it's not...

but...for us...it's been hard.

last week my littlest little got sick...which turned into an ear infection...

with a high fever...like 103+...as it almost always does...

there was lots...and lots of sibling rivalry...

there may or may not have been some awesome pms thrown in there for good measure...

end of the month money stress...

and there were other countless annoying "life" situations...

which i will spare you the gory details of...you're welcome.

then this week...my oldest little got the little virus that her sissy had...

there was an exhilarating trip to urgent care...and throat swob for strep...awesome...

enter...other "life" situations...

and then my girls and i came home from the park to discover that someone had broken in to our home.

they broke the handle/lock on the back door...

and when they couldn't get in that way they broke the window. 

now...one bright light to the whole mess... {besides the fact that we weren't home when it happened}...

they didn't take anything of value...

which yes i know is just "stuff"...that being said...

our only items of value are our livelyhood...

that's how we make a living...

my photography gear...

my hubs computer repair gear. 

they basically made of mess of the bedrooms...

and broke my daughters' piggy bank...

taking the one dollar bill that was in there...

seriously...a dollar bill...all of this for $1...so sad.

they could have gotten more money standing at an intersection holding a sign asking for money.

neither our oldest...or myself...slept well.

this is actually all she can talk about.

she said last night, "mommy, the people that broke into our house and broke my piggy bank weren't thinking about god"...

what a great teaching moment.

though i know that our god will take care of us...

there is the thing of feeling violated.

there is a whole emotional side that goes along with this.

so...if you think of it...

pray for my family...

for our patience of mind...

and ultimately our safety.

also, our property management company is not willing to help us...in any way...

they actually seemed rather annoyed with our call.

even though the landlord has home owner's insurance...

they are unwilling to help make the property more secure...

so that's on us...using money that we don't have...

to secure a home that we don't own...

so that our family can feel safe.

awesome.

so there you have it...

thanks for letting me unload, friends.

here's to a better week!

i might be back later in the weekend to show some things i've been working on...

we shall see.
