So...Danny goes to bed early, and I sit up with the boys....chatting with my mother on the phone. I get off the phone, and tell the kids to wrap it up and get ready for bed. Just then, the neighbor is beating down my door!! I was alarmed, and I went running. She was yelling that someone had tried to break into our vehicles (which wasn't too hard because my husband doesn't believe in locking the doors). Anyway....apparently, the next door neighbors saw these people trying to get into their vehicles (which were people)...when they couldn't get in theirs, they ran to our house and opened up Danny's work car and started rummaging around. They called the cops (which were here in nanoseconds). The people (I call them people, but I mean dirty, lowlife, crackheads) took off running into a nearby field. The cops came and talked to us...and looked around the neighborhood for the idiots. As far as I know, they never found them. Our neighbor said that the lady ( I use that term loosely) was on a cell phone, and the person with her looked to be a teen aged boy. They were both dressed in dark clothes.
Guys, this was before 10:00 at night. We were still up (the kids and I). These idiots were in my front yard, near my carport door (which was friggen unlocked). They could have come right into my house. I can't believe it. This is a small town, and we take for granted that it is safe. Never again will I make that mistake.
Nothing was taken. Thank goodness. Danny had lots of stuff in the car that was valuable. STOOOPID. UGH. I am guilty, too. I had my van unlocked with the dang keys in the ignition. Oh my gosh. I might have well just given them the van. If it had been stolen, I would have no one to blame but myself.
Lesson learned.

Unbelievable is right! You know, we rarely lock our cars, or our house for that matter... And you know what? Someone stole my ATM account number and PIN. Freaking figures, eh? Tis the season to rip off others.

Oh how horrible! Glad everything turned out OK!

Oh my...that's scary....we had a similar situation once...where the neighbor saw them going down the entire street and only hitting the vehicles near the street....we had nothing stolen, but the door was open.

Glad it turned out ok, except for the being freaked part. A few months ago while dh was away I forgot to check the garage doors before bed (ds constantly opens them to go shoot baskets; there's no entry door on that side of the house) and someone stole my purse out of my unlocked car in the garage. Okay... the carkeys were lying on the carseat....and the door into the house was unlocked and my children and I were all in bed asleep. Duh!! Coulda been A LOT worse for both of us, right?
