Cops and Robbers

It has been a while since I posted anything but that is because our office was broken in for a second time last weekend and I have been without a computer. I walked into the office on Monday morning and noticed that all my files were on the floor. Immediately, I thought our cleaning lady had dropped them and left. Why wouldn't she just pick them back up and put them away? That's weird. Then I noticed that my desk was slightly tipped over. Why wouldn't Julia just put the desk back in its normal position rather than leaving my desk a shamble before leaving for the day? Holy shit! Where's my computer?!! God Dammit, we were robbed...again! Sometimes it takes a while for things to sink in for me. Oh, I was so pissed off. I looked around and saw that Nathan and Rob's computers were gone. The back door was missing it's knob. The sad thing is Nathan had purchased two "fake" survaliance cameras to put up and hope to scare the theives off. They were still in their packaging and had also been stolen. I'm sure they were laughing their asses off when they saw how smart we were. No, this time they did not go through my drawer to steal my snacks, however, they did take out one of my gatorades out of the fridge and ate one of my tapioca puddings. Why?! Needless to say, we have learned our lesson twice and are now installing a security system. I was planning on just putting a sign on our doors that said, "We Have Nothing Left...You Took It All" as a means to send them on their way. When the police came, I told them that I felt like I was in the scene of The Big Labouski when The Dude gets his stolen car back and asks the cop if he has any strong leads yet. The cop then tells him that they have set aside the murders and the rapes to get on the case of the stolen car. I felt like we were probably at the bottom of the priority list to solve this break in mystery. Now we get to decide how to break it to the insurance company and not get dropped.

Wednesday, I had a doctors appointment for my 14th week. We got to hear the baby's heart beat! It was beating at 160 beats per minute. All my blood work came back normal and my iron count looked great. The doctor measured me and said everything looked great and normal. Apparently I'm very normal. She gave us the paperwork to set up the Ultrasound appointment to determine the sex of the baby and suggested on her way out that we try the Drano test. I was pleasantly suprised at the suggestion to test out an old wives tale. She said that all of her patients swear by it and it has been 100% accurate for all of them. She said, if anything, it would be fun. Well, we tried it last night. We're not saying what the outcome was. We don't want to say anything until we have the ultrasound which is scheduled for July 27th. It's our little secret we'll keep between the two of us for about a month. After the ultrasound, I'm sure we'll tell everyone so that we can all go shopping.

Wednesday night I sensed what felt like a little bubble pop in my belly. It wasn't gas.

I am sorry to hear about the break-in; I know how difficult it is to lose your PC for ANY amount of time.

But I couldnt help myself from cracking up at your irony of your misfortune when you bring up THE "Fake" Surveilance cameras, sitting in the box. Maybe they should question the clerk that sold them the cameras in the first place?? There you go, inspector Bonner gives you a lead.

Anyways,one of the funniest movies ever. THE BIG LEBOWSKI, duuuuuude. I love to watch John Goodman Bash the duuuudes car apart. too funnny,

Glad to see your keeping up the blogs. I need to get on it myself!
Thanks for the inspiration.
