NO, I'm not dead... but sure could have been!

Hello everybody. I know I know I haven't done a post for a long time. Life as I know it is no more! A couple weeks ago we took the annual family vacation to San Diego. It was a BLAST! I took over 200 pictures, and yes I plan on posting a condensed version soon. The day after we got back we found out that we got the 3500 Square Foot basement apt we had inquired, so we have been moving for over a week! It has been so stinkin hard, but we just wanted to say thank you to those who helped us move into our new place. You were so thoughtful to offer! And, we plan on having you over for dinner soon!!
Ok, so here is where my title about being dead comes in. You are not going to believe this. So let me preface by saying this Hill family has the worst luck!! So Sunday night we went over to our storage unit to move all the stuff out of there to our new house. Josh's friend Aaron came over to help.. when we arrived we found that our storage unit had been broken into and pretty much everything of value had been stolen. A few items for example were, our washer, Josh's bow (for hunting) 2400 dollars mind you, all of his hunting/camping gear, a rocking chair, 2 computers, his mounted bucks, binoculars, a lot of my decorations... I can't remember what else but it was a lot!!! We called the police and got the police report. The next day, we went back, but before we went to get all the stuff, Josh went in to talk to the manager and get a copy of our lease agreement to find out all the liabilities and stuff. Well they had some sort of confrontation, which I have to admit the lady was and has always been so dang rude, she is a miserable person. Anyway, he and Aaron proceed to go to the storage unit and get what's left. Well Josh asks me if I will go over and get his change of clothes out of my car, which was parked outside the gate. So I'm holding Lilly, and as I turn around from the back seat, the manager is walking out and pulls out a gun, calks it back, and flashes it in my face. I look at her and say, "Are you trying to scare me or something?" and she mumbled something I couldn't understand, and then I say, "If you hate your job so much, why don't you just quit!" And she says, "I don't hate my job, I hate you!" I was thinking I have never met you before you crazy lady. So she proceeds to get in her car and drive away, while I hurry back to where Josh and Aaron are. They immediately call the cops, and what seemed like every cop in Salt Lake was in there in a matter of seconds!! I just kept thinking is this really that big of a deal? Josh kept saying "Honey you could have been shot, and our little baby!" So anyway, the long and short of it is, they think she is behind the break in at the storage unit because there have been 6 this month, and you have to have a code to even get in. All I know is I feel like I should be on the Jerry Springer show or something because of all this drama. Who does this happen to anyway? I atleast thought the west side... JUST KIDDIN to all you west siders, well I guess I am one now too. So anyway, when we get totally moved in, and start the schedule, (because lovely timing as always, we started school on MONDAY!) I will get back to regular posting of pictures. Oh, and one more thing, the reason I said this Hill family has bad luck, is because this is the 3rd time we have been robbed since we got married, which if I may remind you has only been a year and a half. Thanks for reading my novel. Bye bye.

That totally stinks and is really scary! I would have freaked out. You make it sound like you were so cool about it. Hope things get resolved and you can get your things replaced. Glad to see you're back

Shawna said...

Wow scary. Who do these people think they are messin' with. I mean come on, hello. You lived in buddy in the "bat cave" quarters for over a year where you went through vigorous training every morning to handle situations like this. LOL!
Hopefully this all gets resolved and the scary lady with gun gets her punishment. What idiot does that to anyone, anyone holding a new baby might I add.

Marissa and Scott said...

Aside from your stuff being stolen, at least you're all okay. Holy Crap! I still can't believe it. Did you guys have insurance on your storage unit? Even if you did though, you'd have to have pictures or reciepts of everything. WOW! Let us know if there's something we can do. I'm sure there's not, but let us know. We love you guys so much.
