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??
