Robbery update

I did 6 miles Thursday, and another 4 miler today. My pace is still deadly slow, and I really have to push to complete the run. The stamina just isn't there, and I'm wondering-is it possible I'm still suffering from the flu? That might explain the deep need for a nap in the middle of the day and the complete lack of appetite. Honestly, if Hubby didn't need to eat occasionally I don't think I would eat at all; I just kind of eat with Hubby to keep him company and because I know on a logical level that I have to eat something.

I think it's time, faithful readers, to give you an update on the robbery that occurred at my home last month. My days of schlepping around to jewelry stores and pawn shops in 3 counties has in fact reaped some benefits. Some of my jewelry did show up and I managed to recover a little over a dozen pieces. The local sheriffs department will hold my stuff as evidence but I will eventually get it back. I didn't recover any of the really valuable stuff but I did get some pieces that have a great deal of sentimental value and perhaps that's worth more anyway. Actually I'm grateful that I managed to get anything back-I truly thought I would never see any of it ever again.

And the good news is that the recovery of my property led to some names for the detectives to follow up and hopefully will lead to more property recovery and an arrest or two. So it's now in the hands of the professional crime solvers, and all I can do is continue to visit pawn shops and see if I recognize anything. The wheels of justice grind slow, but exceedingly fine...

The flu --- with lack of appetite is going around like wild fire!! My mom and son both went through it....I hope you feel better soon! Can you force down a protein shake or something to get some nutrients in you? That might help.

I am very happy to hear you found some of your stolen belongings! Hopefully there will be more to follow. :)

YAY!! I'm so happy you got some of your stuff back! Especially the sentimental stuff.

Sorry you are still feeling crummy. Flu takes a lot out of you, it will take time to fully recover, just relax and the speed will come back.

great news on finding some of your jewelry. hope they got a good lead. don't force too much in your running. sounds like you need to rest and get well.

The stress of the flu and the stress of the robbery, plus depression leading to loss of appetite will lead to stress symptoms similar to overtraining. I'm happy to hear you found some of your sentimental items and have received a little justice with possibilities of find more items as well.
