I taught this morning and came straight home. I've divided the afternoon into resting* and fixing things. As I get past the obvious mess from the break-in I come across the damnedest things. Evaluations I lost four years ago, all my stockings and pantyhose not just emptied from a drawer but strewn and hidden beneath other clothes, a CD of pictures of me in a teacup, the address of a neighbour that I was vainly looking for last November. All the places I tidied when did my big paper sort earlier this year the thief left alone (well, almost all) but all the places I had forgotten existed, he went through. He found me a huge bag full of shopping bags, of all things, including my Judy Horacek one. With all this strewing, there's a bit more damage than I thought, but not a lot.

It's going to take me a few more days to set to rights. Stuff that didn't look so bad turns out to be strange. I'm doing one corner at a time and taking it easy. I'm making lists of things that are missing (I didn't notice that all my rings were gone, and now I need to remember what rings I had - this is surprisingly hard - was my one ring with a facetted semi-previous stone a topaz, or am I misremembering, did my turquoise/silver ring come from America or Canada?) and things that are damaged (at first I thought nothing was damaged, but looking more closely, things are not that simple).



*because this week caught up with me - between the eyes and the break-in I am somewhat steamrollered
