Not the Best Night

I can't sleep so I figured I would write.  I'm using the world's oldest and slowest computer too...let me tell you why...

So earlier this evening I left work and went to the Junior League for a meeting.  After the meeting, my girlfriends were all going to grab a bite and I decided to join.  We had the best time.  It was great to catch up with everyone and have some quality girl time.  You just don't laugh the same with anyone than your girlfriends. 

As we exited the restaurant about an hour-1.5 later, I felt something fall on my shirt.  It looked white and metallic.  I instantly grabbed it thinking my Kendra Scott earring fell out of my ear as they often do to feel a thick, giant bug in my hand.  I felt it's little legs and wings and quickly threw it on the ground, screaming and running.  I was major creeped out.  I think it was a cicada.  Whatever it was, it was huge and I hated it. 

Yuck, but moving on.  We all said our goodbyes in the parking lot and headed to our cars.  I got in my car, was about to dial Jason to tell him I was on my way, but as I was backing out I heard a huge crunch.  I looked behind me, now with the lights on and noticed my entire back windshield was shattered to bits and pieces.  I'm eerily calm in a crisis moment so I immediately looked in the car to see if anyone was in it, and started thinking what was gone. 

COMPUTER BAG with
LAPTOP
iPAD
WORK

and if that wasn't bad enough...

My Beloved Erin Condren LIFE PLANNER! 

I ran to check the back and sure enough, my bag was gone.  Punch in the gut.  Police were called .  IT was called since it was a work computer.  I went back inside the restaurant to wait. 

And wait, and wait, and wait.  Finally after all of the patrons left and the staff looked antsy, I left for home without meeting with the police. 

I know I'm an idiot for leaving my laptop and iPad in the car.  I'm not a stupid girl, just one that for one moment wasn't thinking.  It's crazy that I've never been broken into before.  I know it happens all the time, but I feel majorly violated and mad.  So much work lost and now money spent to replace things plus time to get the car fixed, etc. 

I can't sleep because I keep thinking what they might possibly have or be able to get into now.  I've changed all my passwords just in case.  I'm hoping they are idiots and aren't interested in things like identity theft, stalking me, blah, blah, blah.

I'm not telling you this to feel sorry for me.  Please don't.  Just remember to be careful always...if you let your guard done just for a quick dinner, you never know what might happen. 

...Oh and cicadas are very creepy bugs!

...Oh and whoever broke into my car, you are an IDIOT.  You left a bag with new Lululemon pants in it WITH TAGS...do you know how valuable that is!

  3. Jeez, what a bummer! Yes, for the second time. Dang girl, you just dont seem to get a break these days! It looks like you are handling it pretty ok, and you gotta remember that those are only material things. Life is too short to stress about things you can't change. You should move to Dallas, less crime, J/K, but hey you will be fine and hopefully they will catch those thieves and get your stuff back! Hope you feel better...

  4. Oh no! I wouldn't be able to sleep either! I'd be absolutely sick to my stomach with worry. Yikes. Hopefully Jason had a big glass of wine or something similar waiting for you at home. ;)

  6. Thanks everyone for thinking of me! Allison, I would have called you guys, but there was nothing really to be done. I didn't want to ruin your nights too! I appreciate it though!!!
