i'll post about yesterday later, i still haven't downloaded the pics yet.
i'm pissed. and upset. and angry & frustrated. we left our fairly new lawn mower in the back yard yesterday, because mark didn't have the time to come fetch it as he had rehearsal (yes, he's back to playing again, hallelujah!) . we left here around 5, and the lawnmower was still here at that point. i came home this morning, and the lawnmower is gone. this lawnmower was in replacement of one that was stolen from mark's last year. this is going to make the 3rd lawnmower i've bought in 3 years! (the first was in replacement of an old one that died). i'm sick of this. i bought liam a bike 3 years ago for his 11th birthday, and it was stolen off my enclosed front porch last summer. they had to OPEN THE DOOR AND WALK ONTO MY PORCH to do this. and i have a fenced in yard. they had to actively open the gate, and walk to my patio, and push it out my back yard. when i asked my neighbor if he'd seen anything, he told me that he can't even leave his garage door open while he's mowing (he has a riding mower, he has a corner lot) because someone stole a battery charger out of it while he was mowing.
why can't people leave shit alone? i don't live in a bad neighborhood (i wouldn't have gotten the kids back, if i had), it's much like the one i lived in in blair (small town north of omaha about 20 miles for those who don't know). except for this. i'm tired of it. i don't have a shed, so i can't store or lock anything up. i'm tired of it, and i'm going to do something about it. next weekend, i'm going to home depot and buying a few sheets of plywood, and i'm building a lock box to put stuff in. i just don't understand. it's not like they'd get that much for it at a hock shop. gee, maybe $50? not enough for a rock, or a bag, and maybe enough for groceries for 2 or 3 days, or maybe a week, if they ate frugally. damn
