The back door was partly open when DH got home. Almost all of my jewelry is gone. That's all the guy took--left three laptops, TVs, my phone (which I had forgotten again), my Kindle... A neighbor actually saw him leaving our house; the police went over to talk to her, but I rather despair of getting any of my things back. I remembered a lot of what was in my jewelry case, and my best friend helped me estimate value--it's several thousand dollars. Insurance will cover a small amount. I could kick myself for not selling all those gold chains I never wore. I'm most upset about losing my wedding ring, though it no longer fit on my finger, and a tiny cross my mom gave me when I was about 12. The officers who came said there's been a big upswing in residential burglaries lately.
