So I was walking up to my car after lunch on Saturday on the phone with Matt when Bj says, "someone broke into your car." Sure enough:

I was freaking pissed! I mean hello! I had nothing of value in there, NOTHING! I keep my car "showroom clean" just like they tell you to. So what did they go for. Well first of all they tried to get in through the front door by breaking the lock, not so easy, huh? So they broke this window and unlocked the door. At which point I’m betting my alarm went off and they only got this:

One of the faces off of my stereo, the one that isn’t required to make the stereo work, so not a huge loss. But still, argh!!! I don’t have the kind of insurance that would cover this because the car just isn’t worth that much any more (of course to me it’s priceless). So then Bj took off and went to go get clean up supplies and a plastic bag to cover the window. I’m standing there in the cold parking lot and it starts to sink in, and I’m a girl so I cry. I just stand there in my way too big puffy coat and cry and cry. These guys (soon to be known as assholes) are one row over and a few cars down and working on their car or something when they start talking really loudly (Spanish so I don’t know about what). Then they start pointing and laughing at me. As I stand there crying all alone. AHHHHHHH That made me more mad than anything and I just felt so low. They drove off and Bj came back, but it was hard to get my mojo back.

The drive home did let me calm down a bit and got me thinking about karma. I mean, why me? What  have I done, I can think of some things, I’m not perfect, but lately it seems like more bad than good is happening. Still no church to get married at, the florist fell through, and I just found out that I’m not going to have a flower girl. I think you can see where I’m going with this…. Am I about to win the lottery?!?!? I just can’t help feeling that I’m being set up for a great reversal of fortune. I mean Justin Timberlake said it best, "what goes around, goes around, goes around, goes all the way back around" (repeat).

  1. Soooooo sorry alpster. We’ll get you all fixed up. 🙂 I am pulling for you to win the lottery.

  2. o, so sorry Amber!
    this is awful but I do believe in karma
    they will not have good luck for this
    keep your head up and things will be better
    soon, you see 🙂

  3. AMBER! Soooo sorry!!! I can’t believe it! At least they just broke the window and took part of the stereo and you weren’t hurt. That’s the important part. I also believe in Karma, but I also KNOW that God does not give us more than we can handle…so even with the car, the church, etc it will be ok and everything will work out. Just pray and try not to stress. And maybe eat some nerds…that’ll make you feel better 🙂 And a good thing–you guys are coming to visit me in like 2 weeks!!! See! Things are looking up already! 🙂 Love you!

  4. Dude! that sucks. I am so sorry that had to happen to you.
    I truly believe that good follows bad, so just keep your head up.

  5. Mean people suck! Sorry this happened to you. Remember all the nice people in the world and Good Karma should be coming your way soon!

  6. That does suck and so do mean people. I mean, come on! You definately have had your share of suck-age lately. I hope the winds of change are blowing your way ’cause you sure deserve it!

  7. Sorry to hear about your car and stereo. I had that happen to me when I lived in Minneapolis. They broke my window and tore up my dash board trying to take out the stereo. Stereo wasn’t even worth 20 bucks. But my window cost over $50 and the dash board would have been even more. Never got that fixed because 2 days later I got in an accident and totaled my car. YIKES!
    I think that you have come full circle with this one and things should be getting much better!!!!!!!! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!
