Grrr! What a night!

Well I am the biggest chicken ever. At 11:30 last night I was sitting in the LR on the computer working on blog stuff and that when somebody pounded on the plexiglass of our outer door. Scared the crap out of me and I threw the computer and ran screaming bloody murder into the bedroom waking dh up. I was so upset that he called the police and let them know that someone was doing Knock and Runs (we used to call them something else, but I dt think that it's politically correct anymore) Well shortly after that Brett called to say that they had been gotten too. Not even 5 minutes later they came and got our house again. Since I had no clue who was doing it or what was going on (I seriously thought someone was trying to break in and kill us) that I started screaming again which made Erick scream and got him all shaken up.
To make a long story short the police showed up, patrolled the block and caught the little punks that were doing this. They apparently were knocking over garbage cans and that too. I hope they learned their lesson. Afterwords it took quite awhile for us both to calm down. Thankfully Myelle slept through the whole thing. I think I've had my share of excitement for awhile.

That is a little un-nerving!! I will never forget when I was in Twin and up about that late with Kellie when we heard a crash and then saw lights driving away from the house. We were both so scared that we couldn't move... it turns out that Rosie (my car) got hit. I think that people are weird. Why do that, right? It just causes unwanted stress and not cool feelings that won't go away for a little while after the fact. Grrr...
