Houston, We Have a Problem ! WAAAAAAHH !!

This has nothing to do with Houston. . .not even Texas at all! And it's not that WE have a problem. The problem is clearly mine! I guess I said that because it just sounded familiar!! So. . . . . . . . . .. . . . . Does the above picture look wrong to you?? Well HELLO!!. . . I have man hands!! They are bigger than my husbands!! No kidding! Oh wait. . . that wasn't the story. . .
Let's just say that tonight has NOT been my best night ever! It started when I decided to go grocery shopping! Yeah, that would have been enough to ruin my night but it didn't end there. I decided to actually look through the fridge and pantry to see what we did and didn't have instead of my usual approach of just random shopping. Did I mention I hate it? Oh *sigh* well I still do! Anyway, I pulled out the crisper drawer in the fridge to check out the inventory of veggies and I guess I don't know my own strength and I whipped that drawer out and onto the floor. Unfortunately in the process it caught my left hand as it went down. I immediately looked at my ring finger, which took the bulk of the hit and there was my diamondless ring around my finger!! "HOLY CRAP!" I yelled loudly and then a terrible vision flashed quickly through my mind. Out of the corner of my eye, I could see my puppy running quickly towards me (and the spilled drawer of food). I could just picture him eating my diamond up like it was a crumb and then me digging through his poo for the next week trying to retrieve it!! I frantically yelled for my son to grab the dog and I started filling my hand around the floor and in the bottom of the crisper drawer. THERE IT WAS!! I'm just glad I didn't have to really eat those vegetables to find it!! Oh, it was my lucky (unlucky) day!! I sadly stated to my husband "OHHHH, Now I'm going to have to go without it until I can get it to a jeweler!" my five year old son interrupted with "No mom, why don't you just get the hot glue gun and put it back together. That's how you fix everything else!" Uh, I just don't see that working this time! What do you think??

I think you should try the hot glue....or maybe duct tape!! That would totally work!!! Duct tape fixes everything!

you can always borrow one of my moms fake rocks to wear until you get the hot glue gun warm. I am sorry I cant believe that happened.

That's what you get for having a "honker" ring!! So sad! I love you.
