{smash-n-grab birthday}

Does that sound like a birthday party theme that you would like to throw for your little tike? I didn't think so, but apparently that was the big theme of our 11 year old's birthday. Apparently, that is what we were paying the big bucks for! We took 13 kids to a laser tag party place in Jacksonville for Action's birthday, the kids were having a great time. This is my kids party, it should be something that has great memories, but no some person who thought it was his "right" because he is who he is ruined so much of today and so much more. Right now I am just very, very angry. I probably should not be blogging. It was announced over the intercom that the owner of our type of van should come out to the parking lot, keep in mind that it is in the middle of a beautiful Sunday afternoon, we are 20 feet from the front door of a family entertainment park with people constantly coming and going place. We came out to our windows being smashed into a million peices by people who cannot be bothered to get off their sorry lazy butts and go get a job, so intead they broke into and stole a bag that I carry back and forth to the bank that had bank keys, my w-2, my daughter's purse (Abercrombie gift card from Christmas & new driver's license) ,my new little Coach purse that Mark got me for Christmas & my new MAC makeup and my military ID, my driver's license, and credit cards. We cancelled the credit cards. All that they got was a tank of gas, there was no cash in my wallet (they should have known me better!) Replacing all of that is the hard part, how do you ID when you have no ID!! They also got keys to my house and the keypad to my alarm system to my keypad. Don't I feel safe and cozy tonight in my home? I am finding that replacing the keypad and recoding it to the alarm is going to cost quite a bit, I don't even know how much for the locks, my insurance isn't going to touch the stolen items, and its going to cost $100 for the window replacement. All this for a tank of gas and maybe a pawn of a Coach purse. Are you kidding me??? What a bunch of pathetic morons, their energy is much better used on something much more productive. It makes me so very angry because while we are living comfortable, not rich, not well, but my husband has worked his butt off for what we do have and this jerk thinks he has some kind of right to it, because why? Because he is who he is? Which is what? A loser that steals little girls purses? Well, that is the story of my son's 11th birthday, nice, huh? can't wait to scrapbook this one, NOT!

I am so sorry that happened to you guys on Actions birthday no less. I had a friend who left her purse in the car at a train station and the same thing happened to them. *shakes head* There is so much crime in Jax and it has been spreading to our little town as well. You can never be too careful. :( {HuGs}

My car was just broke into a few weeks ago in my driveway, fortunately there was nothing inside and they found an unlocked door, so no broken windows...but anytime they see something in the car worthwhile to steal they will try. Happened to me while visiting my mom (I had luggage in the backseat and they broke every lock on every door). Dirtbags!!!!

That is such a shame D! I am so sorry that happened to you. You have every right to be angry. That just stinks. And they probably knew that a lot of women don't want to be saddled down by a purse in a place like the laser tag since you can't play carrying a purse. They probably realized that a lot of women leave their bags in vehicles there.
Good luck with getting all that taken care of today.

Nothing I can say can make your situation any better, except if I was there I would give you a hug. A big hug.
I don't know how I would react to a situation like this, but it sounds like you're reacting the way any normal person would. ANGER. you're right-- they had NO right to your stuff.
I hope you get everything taken care of as quickly as possible and that life gets back to as NORMAL as possible.
Love and Hugs, my peep..

Gosh Darleen, I'm so so sorry! I can't imagine how all of that would make me feel. What a way to ruin a great birthday.

oh my gosh - what a terrible thing to happen to you guys. Thank goodness no-one was hurt. I am glad you blogged it...lesson to me: leave nothing in the car that could be a temptation.
