Wrapped Around My Finger

Ugh, ugh, ugh….I’m just saying. So as if the loss of three months of pictures was not bad enough, oh do I have something that could top that by about ten BILLION (and yes, I mean BILLION) miles. On Thursday the peanut and I were running around town all day, you know, the library, the feed store to see the baby animals, groceries, Goodwill, all that good stuff, and then back home again to play outside while the weather was still warm. I was out taking pictures and having fun, came inside to put the peanut down for a nap, starting vegging to Reba when I suddenly noticed something missing. And when I say something, I only mean THE most important piece of jewelry I’ve ever owned. Yeah, my wedding/engagement set. It’s gone. And I mean gone. I did not take it off. I am sure of that. It wasn’t loose. How did it get off my finger? Not a clue I say. Not a clue. The only guess I even have is that since the peanut is always falling, maybe at one point I reached down to pull her up and her little hand pulled it off my hand. That’s all I got. I have called all around, put an ad in the paper, searched the VERY LARGE yard a million times. It’s gone. And, I’m just devestated over it. Clearly, I mean who would ever wish their wedding ring gone. I really wanted it to be the peanut’s one day. It’s just crushing. I just keep praying it will turn up. If you want to join me in prayer, why that would be super swell of you!! I think we are going to try to get a metal detector (they are like $200!!!) to try searching the yard. It’s still just unbelievable to me that this could happen. So, that’s the bad news for this week.

The good news, is that I won at the blog party again this year! Woo hoo! Last year I won a $15 gift card to Starbucks. I was number 100 out of nearly 1500 and I got an even better prize than last year. How this happened I have no idea. People must not have understood how super swell the prize is. You can go to Who Can Ask For Anything More, check out her page and see how terrific it is. A super cute bag, 3 cookbooks, and a totally terrific part, a $25 gift card to Target. Woo hoo! Mama needs a new pair of shoes! So, there is good news in an otherwise not so great week.

How was yours?

    Oh Amy that sucks…I am soooooo sorry! I don’t know what I would do if it happened to me except everything you are doing. Could you rent a metal detector rather than having to buy one? Good luck, I hope you find it!!
