    I’m so sorry about the car break in – horrible! I’m sure that you do feel very violated! I hate that there was stuff taken that was personal and insurance can’t begin to cover.
    On a happy note – sounds like your wedding planning is going great!!!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thanks Kim. It is the sentimental stuff that sucks the most. πŸ™

    I watched the whole Luther series and loved it. One thing I love about British TV is that no one is all good or all bad like American shows. Brits love their shades of gray. I couldn’t get past the first 15 minutes of Hemlock Grove. But maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood for it.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I can see that about Hemlock Grove. The first episode was terrible. I’ve seen about 5 so far and they do get a little but better but sometimes I cringe watching it. It’s a mixed bag so far but honestly, I didn’t have anything else to watch! LOL

    Lisa, I hope some good comes your way! I keep reading all the crappy things that have happened lately, and it sucks. πŸ™ So, so sorry about your novel. πŸ™ We had a doggie paw mishap this weekend of our own. Dogs!

      Thanks Deb, I hope some good comes our way too.

    I am very sorry about the car break in πŸ™ Sometimes people just suck!!

  5. Courtney @ Don't Blink. Just Run.

    That totally sucks about the car!! I would be devastated too. I hope your luck turns around soon!

    That IS great news about Bella though. And sounds like wedding planning is going awesome. It’s definitely tough working on a budget, but Pinterest has soooo many budget-friendly ideas. I bet you guys can do a lot of great stuff with limited funds.

      Well, Michael is off work again today because no one could fix the window Friday. The glass guy came today and tried to fix it and now it’s at the body shop. LOL It just gets better!

    Robbers suck!! Unfortunately I’ve been a victim 5 times, and you are right that it is the stuff that they don’t want that you miss the most.
    Glad to hear wedding plans are going so well!
    On another note, we had a cat that thought he was a dog – he was raised with them as he was abandoned by his mother and we had only dogs. When new dogs would come to visit he totally threw them off! The dog would run up to him expecting the cat to hiss and run off, but instead the cat would just sit there and let the dog play with him.

      Thanks, Lisa. That story about your cat is awesome. It made me smile. πŸ™‚

    I’m happy that things are going well with the wedding and that Bella’s recuperating just fine, but I was just sick to my stomach at the thought of your novel being gone! I have lost poems that I’ve been working on before, and even remembering enough to reconstruct them is just not the same. At least you have something to start with in the iCloud, but you have my utmost sympathy on that one…

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thank you for the kind words. You are correct, even trying to reconstruct something like that is overwhelming and just not the same. πŸ™

    I’m so sorry about the car break in and thefts…that totally sucks. I’ve been there several times myself, and it makes me so angry. I hope you can keep working on your novel and don’t let this get you down!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      I’m trying to move on from it!

  9. Roz@weightingfor50

    I GRRRRr on your behalf Lisa. Being broken into suck! (that’s an understatement)
    Take care

    I’m behind on blog reading so I’m just seeing this. I’m so sorry this happened to you! Even though they didn’t take the more expensive stuff, I know on a much smaller scale how horrible it is to lose your writing–it has tremendous value on its own! I wish I could hug you!

    Glad you included the upside and that the wedding planning is going well!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Thanks Rebecca! Things are turning around.
