Short-lived

Well, my thinking the house was getting better was short-lived. Tim got home from Waco this morning and found our house had been broken into over the weekend. They stole our Wii, Wii games, some DVDs, a $1,000 stereo I got as a graduation present, and Tim's old laptop. Awesome.

It appears they came in through the door in the dining room that goes out onto a deck. It was weird when we moved in. Like, it would lock and seem like it was in place, but it had a big space between the door jam and the door. The only way he figured it out was that he had put blue painter's tape around the door to keep the draft out and that was torn when he was looking around the house to figure out how they got in. I called the apartment complex we looked at before we found the house and they have an apartment available on April 1st, so I think we are probably going to move. I'm waiting on the final word from Tim, but I don't think I will ever feel safe in that house if he isn't there now. It freaks me out because they had to have known something about the house to know that door was broken like that. We are thinking it was either someone who had been there before when the last tenents lived there or some of the high school kids from the high school down the street because they walked through the driveway a few times right before we moved in.

I'll post about the weekend later. The fun we had has kind of been overshadowed by this happening. I'll keep y'all updated - the police where there a little while ago when I was talking to Tim and he was waiting on the landlord to call him back.

I'm so sorry to hear about this! It definitely sounds like someone who knew about the door, and probably someone who had been watching and knew Tim would be gone for the weekend. Hopefully things start looking up!

I'm so sorry this happened to you guys! I hope things work out with finding a new place to live! I love daydreaming about finding a house in Austin after we graduate and if something like this happened when we finally moved in I would be devastated. Good luck with everything.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I think I would have to move too, especially since you're only renting. I hope you are able to get out of your lease.
