So for the past three days I have been catsitting my sister's cat. Which was okay but, well, we all knew he was on the way out. And so he passed away today, before my sister got home, while I was sitting there beside him.

And that was the start of the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

So then I had to find some kind of plastic thing and slide it under him, because death equals sphincter relaxation. I eventually settled on plastic shopping bags and I wasn't quick enough. And when they got home, I helped my sister and brother-in-law bury the cat.

So that was the next bit of the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

And then, when my sister and brother-in-law took me home, we drove in to find my front door wide open, the lock jimmied, all my drawers and cupboards opened and a digital camera, my oldest portable hard drive and the jewellery box that contained all my old, costume jewellery stolen.

And that was the cap on the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

I guess the thing is that it isn't as bad as it could have been? They didn't find or recognise my good jewellery box. They didn't recognise the monetary value of many of my physical things. They only took the shinies and that's the least valuable things of what I own. The drive doesn't have any current personal data on it. Because I took my wallet with all my cards, my phone, my computer and my current portable hard drive with me when I went catsitting (oh, happy impulse!) I didn't lose any of them. Current opinion is it was some kids looking for quick, easy cash.

So the landlord's replaced the lock, the police report's been filed and I, well, I'm cleaning up.

This has been a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.

Wow. I guess at least you got it all over with at once?

I'm so glad you took your computer and hard drive with you. And your wallet.

And my condolences to your sister and brother-in-law.

Oh, that is indeed horrible. I think with burglary, it isn't so much what has been stolen as the fact that your home was invaded that is particularly distressing and unsettling.

And my condolences to you and your sister and brother in law.

Much love,

That definitely qualifies as a horrible day. I've never found the fact that it could have been worse to be very consoling but I am glad that you had your computer, phone, and wallet with you. I hope the bad day has put an end to bad stuff happening to you.
