Well ... it looks like someone broke into our house today, while we were at church. 

Called the sheriff and had someone come out to take a report.  It looks pretty obviously like neighborhood kids.  Most stuff appears undisturbed ... we think they took the digital camera that was sitting on the desk, but passed up the GPS unit sitting there, much less the desktop computer, the stereo, the TV, and stuff like that.  They rifled through drawers in our bedroom, but since we really don't have any valuables in our drawers, that pretty much failed.  They might've taken one bottle of prescription drugs (which we weren't using).

So, on the whole, not a whole lot lost.  I'll have to figure out whether it's even worth filing a homeowner's claim ... I don't know what our deductible is, and the camera wasn't worth that much.

Except, of course, for the nagging uncertainty that comes from having your space violated.  Sigh.

Which really fouled up the fact that we had a great time at the church campout all day today. 

Those @#$! kids ...
