OMG - that is sooooo sad. I hope the photographs are not damaged. Darn people. *geesh* What is it with some of them? They get their thrills out of destroying property and belongings of people that have worked hard for everything they have. I don't understand.......probably never will.
What a way to spend your birthday.
So sorry..... (((HUGS)))
Hang in there!
Thank you, Ghys. It's beyond me too, why they would want to do this. The cottage is a little shack in the woods, with no electricity. It's not the expensive things I'm worried about. I can't replace grandma's pictures, I can't replace great-grandpa's fishing poles, I can't replace all my childhood toys that are there. And to think that somebody just went in there and could have taken it all away just makes me so insanely mad. It's even harder not knowing... it's just weird. Family journals could be flying in the wind right now and there's nothing I can do about it. The papers I learned my ABC's on could be torn and in the snow... wedding photos, construction paper angels. These are the things I want to know are safe. Not the satellite dish, the expensive batteries, the TV. The family stuff, you know? And then I keep beating myself up, saying "I should have brought that home last fall!"... but I guess it's true when they say hindsight is always 20/20.
Sorry for rambling, it feels better to get it out.
