Hiking, Biking, and a Not-So-Fun Homecoming

No pictures, because some punks stole our computers while we were away and I have nowhere to put them. More on that later. Posting from a borrowed computer now.

In our last days in Hawaii, we did more hiking, Girliness did some mountain biking (some of it pretty extreme) with her Tutu, and we generally had fun and wore ourselves out. I went to see Avatar, which is the first movie I've gone and seen at a theater in at least 4 years, maybe more. We packed up, left our swimsuits in Hawaii by accident, and had a pretty smooth trip home.

Until we actually got here.

At some point while we were gone, our house was broken into. The power was turned off at the circuit box, so it was cold and dark and it took us a while to figure out what the heck was going on (weepy cold kids in the meantime, who wanted to follow us around all underfoot instead of sitting with the candles in the living room). Our computers are gone, as are all the electronics that Fran had repackaged for gifting or sale. Lots of $$ lost there, and significant data/pictures. Other random stuff is gone, too, like our razor/haircut set, cordless drill, some of our coats, toilet paper... Our fridge/freezer was off for long enough that we had to throw out almost everything.

I'll be offline for a bit while we figure out the computer situation; this one needs to go back to its owner.

Welcome home, eh?
