Who breaks into a Prius?

So last week while I was at work my car was broken into; annoying.

I have never had my car broken into before and for obvious reasons it really bothered me, knowing that someone who wasn’t supposed to be in my car was in my car is very unsettling. What bothers me even more is that I had just returned from a trip to Northern California and my luggage (which obviously had all of my clothes inside) which had all of my clothes in it was stolen. It is very unsettling to know that some grimy thief has my under things in their possession. barf.

Who breaks into cars anymore really? I mean I feel like this is something that doesn’t happen as often as it used to. and to top it off who breaks into a Prius?! I mean seriously I work at a medical facility and there are wayyyyy nicer cars, with much nicer things in them than my dirty underthings and jeans. Don’t misunderstand me I am not by any means wishing that someone else’s car was broken into I am just saying really a Prius? How does that sound to all of your thief friends “Hey I broke into a Prius today” ugh.

When I came out from work and discovered that my car was broken into I had called Claremont PD to report it and they sent an officer out to check it out. I must say I am a little on the fence about authority figures such as police but I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of time and attention that the officer gave my situation, he literally spent a minimum of an hour and twenty minutes taking my statement, fingerprinting the car, and checking the area for any of my stuff that might have been tossed out. Really impressed I expected whatever officer that was assigned my call to just come out take my statement and leave, but this guy did more than I could have asked for.

I keep wishing that whoever did break into my car will realize that my fashion sense sucks and that my underthings aren’t their style and that they will just leave whatever they didn’t want back at my work. Having to replace clothes, luggage, makeup and everything else that was in my bags PLUS having to repair the window that they broke really adds up. I never realized how much crap I had until it was suddenly gone.

This situation really had me feeling like people suck, every single last person. But the next day one of my coworkers gifted me a little something to help me rebuild my belongings and the next day another and then this weekend Marlboro Man also did some nice things for me. And it made me realize that not all people suck just a couple handfuls and I am ridiculously lucky to have some really amazing people in my corner. I have people in my corner that have big hearts and are extremely gracious when they had no obligation to do anything for me.

The past couple of days have opened my eyes; shitty things happen (duh) and we can either sit and dwell or we can pick up the pieces and move on. I am not going to lie the first couple days I dwelled and I cried and I was angry but now I am starting to pick up the pieces and move forward. No panty stealing thief is going to get me down for too long because I know that the day will come when Karma will get them; it may not be today or tomorrow but it will happen, I have faith in that.

Until next time

I heart tea

In the world of social media today is “Throwback Thursday” soooo I’ve decided to throwback to Italy and the delicious teas that I was so lucky to consume.

I am not sure how or when it happened but over my lifetime I have become a tea fiend; it has actually become a little out of control if I do say so myself. I probably have more tea in my cupboard than I could possibly consume; that would be because I am always buying it.

I kid you not I keep tea in my purse, my car, at work, in my lunch pail, at Marlboro Man’s house. I think it is safe to say I have an addiction.

I am thankful however that I never became a coffee person, the reason I love tea so much is that I find the whole process of brewing a cup to be very relaxing, if not more than the actual consumption of the tea.

I prefer loose leaf tea straight in the cup so that I can chew on the little bits that float around, but I surely do not discriminate against a good bagged tea.

I really love a tea that can stand alone; no sweeteners please!

In this order I love tea: black, green, Rooibos, white, herbal, and Oolong. I have never had Mate teas but I feel that is tea for a person trying to quit coffee. Also never have I ever… had a flowering (blooming) tea; one day.

While in Italy I was introduced or possibly reintroduced to Twinnings Teas; simple and delicious.

Every morning while in Italy my grands and I would go downstairs for breakfast I would have a glass of Twinnings Breakfast Tea with some out of this world Italian honey (I broke my own no sweetener rule, but this honey was phenomenal) and in those moments everything was perfect.

I would love every morning to be transported back to those moments before I have to start my day.
