So, I am totally convinced that when it comes to things being stolen, I have the worst luck! The story goes like this . . . . . . . . today there were a handful of workers that were in and out of the house doing some warranty work of things that we've found since moving in. They were in and out of the house from 8:00 this morning to about 2:30 this afternoon. Unfortunately I didn't get my shower in before they started coming so I had to wait until they left to hop in the shower. Our fridge was also empty so as soon as I got out of the shower I put Easton in the car and we ran to the grocery store. Upon returning Easton crashed on the couch for a nap so I decided to go upstairs to vacuum the carpet in our room where they were working and move the furniture back. When I went to move the dresser I noticed that on the opposite end my big fat loaded jewelry box was gone. This of course being the jewelry box containing wedding ring #2! I immediately got this pit in my stomach but tried to convince myself that the workers probably just had to move it when they moved the dresser. But to my dismay, my frantic search turned up nothing.
I called Scott, I called the building supervisor who was in and out today too. She called the workers that were here and told them to all come back. I figured I'd better call the police as well and within 15 minutes we had to officers show up who were later followed by 2 detectives. (As a side note: that part of things was actually kind of cool.) They ended up questioning 3 of the men and of course none of them even recalled seeing it let alone taking it. Eww! It makes me so mad! There was a fresh layer of sawdust over all of our bedroom furniture from them cutting the floor boards. On the end of the dresser there were 4 squares where the legs of the jewelry box touched the dresser and not a spec of dust inside the square footprints! There is no doubt that one of them walked off with it! Anyway, they are going to do an investigation and take all of the workers in to do a polygraph test, etc. The detectives will be checking thier pawn shop databases to see if anything turns up. Why does my wedding ring always turn out missing? We can't afford any more. :)
