Matt and I have had a rough day today. We woke up to find out that Matt's car was broken into last night. His driver's side window was smashed to pieces and things were thrown everywhere on the inside of his car. His car was also broken into back in January, when we were gone on our honeymoon, so this hits twice as hard. The first time his stereo and speakers were stolen. This time it was his golf clubs.
It is a shame that people have to resort to stealing. I don't understand that and I don't think I ever will. I also can't believe that someone would be okay with damaging someone else's property. Now we have to get him a new window so he can drive his car around.
We are both concerned about safety and have decided if we are still in Michigan, we are definitely moving to a different apartment complex. In addition to the break ins, we've had some issues with our neighbors and the area in general, so it will probably be better.
In good news, my friend Jenny got married yesterday on her grandparents' farm in Ann Arbor. It was super warm and humid, but she looked beautiful and was so happy. I have known her since the first grade and she stood up in our wedding, so I was glad we were there.
In reading news, I did not have as successful a week as I had hoped. While I finished The Hound of the Baskervilles, I didn't start the other Holmes novel. I did read both The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark and Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe, which was a great time, but I didn't even touch Gulliver's Travels or Cranford. I guess you know what I'll be reading before the read-along posts!
This week the goal is to finish both Gulliver's Travels and Cranford to finish up my posts. Then I really need to read the Turgenev for my Classics Circuit post. And perhaps start the Inferno. But we shall see!
I'm so sorry to hear about your break ins. There is just something so unsettling and invasive about a break in. I hope you both are doing all right!ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about your breakins, unfortunately I have also had my car broken into and its not a nice feeling. I think what also annoyed me though was that all they stole out of my car was a couple of map books (WTF) loads of damage to my door for that.ReplyDelete
Not as bad as the time I came out from work and my 79 Camaro Z28 was stolen. All that was found was the car frame in Detroit. :( MomReplyDelete
I'm so sorry about this! I've had my car both broken into and stolen before, and it is NOT a good feeling.ReplyDelete
I hope you can find a better place to live in the very near future.
Aww: I'm sorry about your husband's car. :( There's such a feeling of violation when that happens!ReplyDelete
But it sounds like the wedding was fun!
What a bummer about the break-in. I hope you guys find a new apartment complex you like whenever you decide to move. Feeling safe in your own apt/house is a big deal.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the break in, we've recently had some problems in my area (suburb of Des Moines, Iowa) with break ins in houses. I would definitely feel unsafe if it happened to me.ReplyDelete
So sorry about that. It's so sad as I am also clearly seeing the changes, having lived in MI for the past 25 years. I always hope each year will be better. Hope things get better for you soon too!!ReplyDelete
That's a TERRIBLE feeling, to look outside and see your car broken into. I'm so sorry. :(ReplyDelete
