ITS GONE...Bad Day




I don't usually have "bad days" but yesterday was one! I went to IKEA shopping for decor/furniture for Clint's office(which we have been redecorating and painting all weekend) and I went on a busy Sat (bad idea always!) I had to HOLD Carly who wouldn't sit down in her cart that had no seat belt, she was trying to kill herself I guess. Finally, as I was checking out with all my stuff and was exhausted from: HOLDING Carly, pushing a crazy heavy IKEA cart with 4 wheels that have a mind of their own, holding my pee for the last hour, and then the cashier asks "Are you missing a diamond?" Well obviously I was! Just what a perfect top to the now known "shopping trip from....(fill-in-the-blanks). Anyways, I am just glad that it was insured and I can get it replaced. But what replaces the diamond your husband proposed to you with? So as I was walking out to the car and getting teary eyed, I was just about to loose it. Then some nice guy, whom was obviously there to answer my prayers when I felt I couldnt take anymore,took my cart to my car for me and loaded everything into the trunk. Then I had to go back inside and report my missing diamond in case they find it...(yeah right). I was also thinking that I could barely manage having 1 kid throughout this whole mess, and could I ever have 2, or more? Bad day to think about that...So a little bummed today and I ate all this junk food I bought for Halloween. Now my daimond and my candy is gone...dang. Enough whining, wow! don't you just feel so bad for me?

Jen, that really is a crappy day! Seriously the worst days are the ones where you look forward to going shopping and your kids make it a worse day than being stuck at home. Sorry about your diamond too. That's really crappy. I can't wait to see what you're doing with Clint's office though. So what's the deal...is he in his own place??? How's it going? It's such an exciting time! Keep me updated!!!

Okay I am crying for you! What a day!! I am so glad the ring is at least insured, of course you're right that nothing will really replace it. P.S. Glad you have Karleigh there. Hope all is going well!

i can't imagine what it felt like when you noticed the missing diamond. that stinks! but just think...your crappy day makes for a really entertaining story. and maybe in a few months you can entertain dinner guests or what not with your story. just think, even though you lost the diamond your husband gave you - you didn't lose him. he still loves you the same. and he'll buy you a new one. so you'll still have a diamond that your husband bought you. :)

Rough day! I must admit, not insuring my ring is one of the many ways we are saving our pennies as students. What are the chances that would ever happen right? Hmm... I'm now thinking that it's time to get it appraised and finally send in that little paper to my insurance company to get it added on....

That stinks! I can't imagine. At least it's insured - but still it's sentimental. Anyway, I hope you're feeling better now.

Wow, Jen! I'm so sorry!! That reminds me to get my ring cleaned and the prongs tightened...Oh, I hope things work out soon!! :(
