Crime and punishment

Long workday today, but I felt like I got a fair share of things done. I’ve got 2 more major tasks that I’d like to try and get done this week so that they are completed by the time my boss gets back from his vacation on Monday. I was in meetings for most of the day today, and the day passed pretty quickly.

This evening, I noticed a police car across the street. I talked my neighbor and the house next to hers was broken into sometime during the day! They broke a side window and grabbed a laptop and that was it. It reminded me that I need to let the local police know when I will be gone on my vacation. My neighbors will be checking in on the house for me while I am gone as well.
