mad, mad, mad

So, I had a lovely post to share with you all this morning, but I am just to damned pissed off to share something lovely and sentimental!

I woke up as the sun rose this morning. I put on my flip flops and headed downstairs to let the dog out. I noticed our gate was wide open - we have a dog. A big dog. We are religious about keeping our gate closed, and there it was in the twinkling morning light - wide open! I took a quick look around.


OK, It's just a stroller. I know that. It could have been worse. They could have taken all three bikes, the Razor scooter, the funky skateboard... They could have broken into our home and taken things, or worse...

Actually, this feels pretty rotten. I folded the stroller - the lovely stroller that had been shared with me by my sister-in-law and my brother - and I set it against the side of the house. Behind the front shrub. Where it can't be seen from the street.


I walk everyday with Yaya in that stroller. We go to the grocery store and run all sorts of errands and walk Noni to school and walk and walk and walk. And now I feel crippled. And pissed off. Did I mention that?

And the really sucky thing? We can't afford to replace this lovely $300 dollar stroller until JULY!


I hope that whoever took our lovely stroller gets a lot of use out of it. And if they try to sell it, I hope that they don't make anything for it!

Stroller stealing?! That has got to bring Bad JuJu Karma to a person.... I almost, ALMOST feel sorry for the horrid things that are going to befall that rotten person.

Stroller stealers are very, very wrong.

My question is this....if a baby rides in a stolen stroller does it make the baby stolen too?
