Yep, that would be my (okay, not mine, but an image very similar to mine) wedding ring.
Next on the L.A.M.E. period list was this:
I know, not near as valuable as the ring, but it was another thing I was searching for that was driving me crazy. I KNOW I left those stamps on the counter, but suddenly, they were gone.
Then, last week, I lost this:
Yep, that would be my (okay, not mine, but an image similar!) debit card. At this point, I was endlessly searching for my wedding ring, a roll of stamps, and my debit card. No pant's pocket, drawer, couch cushion, or purse had gone un-searched.
The final breaking point of my L.A.M.E. period was the disappearance of this:
Not the kid (Haley!), but the pink blanket (Pinky!) she can't fall asleep without. For a solid week, Haley would whine "Pinky" before nap or bedtime.
Well, My Friends, I have good news to report! My INCREDIBLE husband surprised me with a new wedding ring he thoughtfully picked out in Santa Fe for our anniversary (seven years on 6/26). Forever, I will be unconsciously looking for my original ring, but my replacement just warms my heart everytime I glance down at my ring finger. Feel free to ogle over it the next time you see me.
Those lost stamps? Found! I really should clean out the hutch above my computer more often...And, that debit card? Cancelled! I really should have done that on the first day I realized it was missing.
Most importantly, Pinky? FOUND!!! That sneaky ragged blanket was hiding at the bottom of one of the 15 baskets of toys my girls have. I really should make them clean those out more often....
