Ann, I am very sorry for the break-in. I have seen the havoc that the combination of unemployment and high metal prices have caused locally. I know that some of the things that happen are out of desperation.
I once had someone get into my car that was full of groceries. I checked and the only thing missing was a gallon of milk. My worst problem with that situation was, if the thief had asked I'd have given the whole load of groceries to that family. I know it was desperation on their part and I don't like to let that go.
I worked hard to get a food bank in our small community and now am privileged to work as a receptionist there. I know how important the food bank is to those who have run out of other resources.
I know you are frustrated by your loss. I am glad your real estate agent spotted the break-in and is taking the steps to prevent any further damage.
Sarah, I've been trying to send you some cool, dry, but I haven't figured out how to e-mail it yet. I'll keep trying. Let me know when you receive it. I grew up in MI were hot and humid were normal during the summer. I hated it. When I came to Seattle I was amazed by the warm winters and cool summers. I had read about that, but it never sank in until I came out here.
Patty, I had forgotten about flylady until I read your post. I really need to get back to her. Thanks for the reminder.
