Last evening, our neighbor from two doors down came by to let us know that their house had been broken into the night before. They had all been asleep and his wife, who is pregnant, got up at about 1am to go to the bathroom. As she was heading back to bed, she heard a noise and saw the outline of 2 guys in the hallway outside her room. She grabbed her husband and he started screaming at them and they took off. He chased them down the stairs, (yes...they went all the way UPSTAIRS!) and out the back door, where they had entered. He chased them down the street but was unable to keep up. The police, of course, weren't able to do a whole lot but take a report. Our neighbor told us that the lock on their back sliding glass door was broken and that was how they got in. (It is fixed now!)
This whole thing totally freaks me out! Those guys could have tried our back door before they found one that was unlocked! I am so happy that we got an alarm system a few months back! Everyone was kind of poo-pooing the idea when I signed up for it, but now...I am SO glad I did!
Needless to say, we didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night. We just felt a little uneasy, that, and there was a HUGE thunderstorm that BOOMED all night!
We're tired folks! I feel bad for Dave having to try and work all day!
