Tackle-It Tuesdays!!! #8

Here comes another week of fun from 5MinutesforMom.Org....we inspired each other by blogging about our "tackles' we have accomplished! It really has inspired me to clean out those cobwebs and feel good again in my own house!

Now, with our recent break-in (see Sunday) , we are in the process of still cleaning up and going through all the drawers they emptied everywhere.

I decided not to post more pics, as it is still very fresh in our minds, so I'll just post once I finish an area... you can go back to (Sunday's post) to see the "before" pics.

There is still quite a bit to do, but thanks to my BFF's, we got 90% of it done that very night!

Looking on the bright side of this, I can say:

*I found an old friend as her phone number was on a scrap thrown on the floor. Never would have found it if the drawer hadn't of been emptied.
*Forced me to look at where our stuff is and how we can protect ourselves better
*Realize how incredibly lucky I am to have my hubby and children
*Found out who my true, true best friends are
*It has brought my marriage to another level
*I am more observant of what is going on around me
*How strong Jeff and I are, and how we cradle each other when we crack
and finally* I have done the BIGGEST TACKLE-IT-TUESDAY EVER! :)

What a difference.

I don't know if I'd ever "get over" an experience like yours. God is good, though, and I feel if you ask, He'll help.

What a great tackle but what a horrible experience!! I would feel so unsafe! I am so glad that you are focusing on the positive.

Sorry you had to experience a break in. But, hey, your tackle looks great!

Great tackle! Looks so good! I, too, am sorry about the break in though!!!

A break in? Shit. I missed that post! Rattles you, I'd imagine. I find when rattled we all draw closer together too.
