We were robbed!!  
Just wanted to pass along some news... Our house was broken into today while we were at work and they took all of our portable electronics - including my laptop which had ALL the files of all of my websites (and no, I don't have back-ups). I think the worst part is that ALL my photos were on my computer - and I can NEVER get them back, all my emails from Kevin, Bets, and Julie which I treasure so much are gone forever... I think more upsetting than the actual hardware that's missing is that MY ENTIRE LIFE was on that computer!

I need to lie down - I feel EXTREMELY violated!

OMG, Sheri!! *HUGS*HUGS*HUGS* I am so very sorry to hear about this. I wish I could do something to make it better. I hope they catch the person and someone saw/heard something.


:( More hugs

Is Sydney OK?
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 05:09 am (UTC)
Sydney's fine... We're very thankful that they didn't harm the dog or let her out of the house. The police were already here and they asked my neighbor who was home all day and he didn't hear or see anything... The police said that there have been a rash of break ins in our neighborhood recently. The physical stuff I don't care about -- all my theatre memories were in photos on that laptop...

Thanks for your comment...

Robbed
Sheri! I'm so, so, so sorry that happened. And violated is probably an understatement. **hugs** Bastards.

Re: Robbed
Thanks so much for your comment... What really upsets me is that I'll NEVER get those theatre memory pictures back... EVER! :(

Oh my god, I'm so sorry to hear this. Note that you can at least redownload your websites to get their current configuration, once the systems are replaced. But that's small consolation -- I'm just so so sorry, and I wish I could do more.

I remember when our house was broken into, and they took the main computer (they left the older 486 systems) and various electronics. It was a violation, plus there was all the worry about account numbers that were on the stolen systems.

When you calm down and start to replace, let's talk about what we can do to get you to have a reasonable backup solution. But for now, just consider yourself hugged.
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 05:20 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment... I guess I'm going to be copying and pasting codes when I get back up and running for a LONG time!! (Kevin's site is 98 pages...) :P

You know they didn't take my ancient (almost dying desktop - which I'm using now...) But they did take my portable DVD player, video camera, camera (with memory stick - all my photos!!) :(

Thanks so much for your comment, Daniel and for your help! HUGS

Awww :( I am so sorry!! That's terrible!!! A while back my computer crashed and I lost everything...its not the same but I guess I can kinda understand where you are coming from.
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 05:31 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment. And thanks for your kind words.

Oh nooooooo! You can still d/l stuff via FTP, right? At least I guess you can save that way, but that only solves a little bit. Good luck, and here's hoping the rest of the recovery goes smoothly.
Sheri: Bets in Guys & Dollsshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 05:49 am (UTC)
Thank goodness for my nasty habit of posting and uploading pictures! All the website stuff can thankfully be downloaded - and you know what? Bets is the sweetest person, she just forwarded me every email she ever sent me - I love her!!
Kananigirlkananigirl on January 9th, 2007 05:49 am (UTC)
OH NO SHERI Sheri! I'm sooooo sorry about all that's happened! I hope you get all your stuff back. I'm glad you, your hubby, and Sydney are okay! ((((((((hugs))))))))

We've had some robberies around the neighborhood. My Aunty's house almost got robbed, now she's got an alarm system. She was home in the house, when they tried to rob them. He could see through the glass sliding door and they were still going to rob the house! So...awful! It must be, because of ICE.
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 05:52 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Rayna... LOTS of robberies in the area - that what the police said who came to our house. Thankfully everyone is alright - but they did take VERY specific things - all small and all portable... They even took my computer bag - but dumped all my personal contents out!

I am so sorry Sheri. :( I am glad Sydney's okay, and that you guys are okay (relatively speaking). :( What a thing for them to take. :(
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 06:01 am (UTC)
Thanks so much Laura... I'm still pretty numb about the whole thing - it's like a bad nightmare that I can't wake up from! :P

SHERI. Ugh, I am so sorry. I can't even convey how sorry I am. It's happened to me twice and you just feel so ... violated afterwards. I mean, people you don't know just rummaging through your stuff and taking pieces of your life? No. No, that is NOT okay. I am so, so, SO sorry this had to happen to you guys - happens to anyone, PERIOD. There are some terrible people in this world.
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 04:03 pm (UTC)
Ashley, thanks so much for your sweet comment! I'm sorry that it's happened to you, too - and twice! :( I'm not exactly sure how I'm feeling this morning... still pretty sad about the loss of all my memories, though... Thanks so much for your comment!! HUGS

OH NO, Sheri! That is so very awful. I'm sorry. :( *BIGHUGS* I'm glad Sydney is ok though. I hope that even though you can't get the pictures back, you can always remember the fun memories you shared while those photos were taken. I know that's not the same though...Hopefully you can get some of the photos and letters from other people you sent them to. Those bastards should be caught! That makes me so angry. If you need to talk, I'll listen. Love ya! *hugs*
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 04:09 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment, Carrie! Last night I spent a lot of time being thankful for what I DO have - which is Mark & Sydney - thankfully no one was injured! It still hurts tremendously that all my memories are gone, though. :( Thanks so much again for your sweet comments and for being such a great friend. HUGS
Kayleakaylea on January 9th, 2007 10:01 am (UTC)
OMG! Sheri, Mark! I'm SO sorry to hear what's happened! * big hugs!!* I know how much electronics are a part of daily life for most of us now. I would be heartbroken if it happened to me. Violated is definitely an understatement. I'd feel every emotion. crazy robbers! I guess what I'm really trying to say though is that even know large amounts of money were spent to get all those electronics it is those that you cannot replace (like Sydney and yourselves) that are the most important. I am just so, glad that all of you are alright and no one is hurt. *more big hugs!*

<3 Mel
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 04:11 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Mel! I guess the things that really bother me about all of this is all the things on my computer that I'll never be able to get back, like all of my photos, etc. They meant A LOT to me because they are all of people and memories that I care so much about. But, yes, you're right - I'm SOOOOO thankful that Mark & Sydney are alright!! Thanks again for your comment. HUGS
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: (london) cabsaudienceawaits on January 9th, 2007 10:14 am (UTC)
Oh my god Sheri, no! Of all people in this world, you do not deserve this!! I am SO so sorry. Oh, Sheri. :( I completely understand your feelings. This is awful.
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 04:13 pm (UTC)
Thanks SO much for your sweet comment, Gill! I'm still in a bit of shock over this - I still can't believe that it happened... but thankfully Sydney is okay and they were kind enough not to hurt her. HUGS
karmastyxkarmastyx on January 9th, 2007 10:29 am (UTC)
I'm very sorry. I'm just glad that you all are okay. I'm sorry you can't replace the pictures, and letters lost. :( HUGS... love ya!
Sheri: :o( - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 9th, 2007 04:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment, Laura! I'm SO thankful that Sydney's okay... I think that's the thing that saddens me the most - all the memories that I'll never be able to get back... :( Thanks again for your comment and for being a great friend. HUGS

Thanks so much, Sue! It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have my entire life on that computer, but I did... :( Family photos, personal emails... basically all my wonderful memories of of the last 5 years or so :( Thankfully Sydney is fine and wasn't let loose - or worse... Thanks again for your comment.
