When I left here sunday to take my daughter out, I had the intention of coming back home afterwards. Things changed once the upstairs neighbor had Emma go upset and watch a surveilance video of the house they share. The video showed 4 black men trying to open the front door, and when it didn't work they went around the house to where Emma's bedroom window is and tried to open her window. Thank goodness she had it locked. Emma came down and told me, and I was too scared to leave her alone. I called Jim told him what was going on. Emma came here picked up Rebecca, clothes, blanket and I stayed at Emma's for 2 night's. I was up all night, lights out and watching out the window's. My nephew Eddie and I made sure every door and window were securely locked. He stayed up til 4am with me, but I stayed up longer. We kept the front and back porch light's on, and the only other light came from the television. I had 1 hour sleep the first night and 3 hours the next night. So I guess I don't have to tell you how tired I am. Instead of me taking Emma out, we waited until monday. I stayed home with the kids and let Emma take my van and go shopping and get her tan. I thought maybe some "alone me time" by herself would make her happy. And it did. She staed out for a few hours, with no kids, driving listening to music and tanning and shopping and she was so happy when she got back. She bought a beautiful bagless HEMA vacuum made by Bissell. Now I want one, lol.
I had sent Angie a text letting her know what was going on. She checks up on me when I am missing from jland, lol. If she don't hear from me today she'll be writing in her journal about it.
Also I wanted to let you know Dan was released at 4pm today. He is home with his family and they are very happy. I will take pics soon to share with you all. I'd better go now. Rebecca is done taking her bath and I have to get her pj's out. It's time for her to go nighty night. I won't be long out of bed myself tonight. I am drained. Take care all and have a wonderful evening.
Love to all.........................Cindy
