and so it goes…
I might officially have to reverse my wedding band and my engagement ring. It looks a bit funny and feels a little funny too. My husband even suggested that I wear the diamond in a necklace around my neck. You see, yesterday, I almost lost my ring again.
On Friday, we flew as a family to go to my grandmothers memorial service. My husband returned on Sunday night so that he could go to work on Monday. The girls and I stayed an extra day and flew home yesterday. They both did fantastic. They behaved, slept, colored, watched a movie and wrote in their diaries. (The 4 year old mostly wrote words that she saw in the airplane.) We had an hour and a half flight, changed planes and then an almost 5 hour flight. Although the second plane was delayed a bit, I didn’t get frazzled. That was until we started to land. I wanted to get the backpack packed back up so that I could take the girls to the bathroom before landing. As we walked down the aisle, I noticed my ring was gone. Fabulous, not again. We frantically looked for my ring, mostly in the backpack, since I had been stuffing things in there. I had all of the people around me looking on the floor. By the time the plane hit the ground, I found the ring in the bag. I think Pig Will was really worried, as she turned a bit pale after I found it. Of course she immediately told daddy that I lost it when we got out to the car.
So there you have it. I will either have to reverse the rings, or not wear the diamond.
In other news, we are heading out tomorrow for Thanksgiving. We are spending a few days with the in-laws and husband’s older brothers family. I’m really excited about eating yummy comfort food and hanging out with family. Thankgiving is my favorite holiday.
