Burglary Attempt #2?

This morning I was startled out of bed at 8:30 AM by my security alarm.  Could it be another break-in attempt?  {At some later date, I guess I’ll have to tell you about the break in attempt that happenned just a little over a week ago.}  Checking the display on my bedroom keypad, I could see that it indicated that the entry from the garage had been breached.  I don’t know if it was because I was still groggy from being woken up so early, or if it was my confidence that there was no way in hell that there would be two attempted break-ins within the same month; but I went to check out the garage entry without a weapon in hand.  I don’t know what I would have done had I actually encountered an intruder….well, besides running away screaming like a little girl!  When I got out to the family room, I could see that the door was slightly open, but still locked.  There were no tool marks on the lock, nor any evidence of an attempted break-in.  When I finally noticed the wind howling outside, I put two and two together and figured that I must not have closed the door all the way and the wind had blown the door open.  So I gave Alice and myself a pretty good scare this morning by not making sure that the door was completely shut before heading off to bed.  Chalk it up as another lesson learned for us.
