just playin' in the rain (not always such a good idea)

a really bad idea.  :(

this afternoon we had some pretty heavy rain - i'm talkin' torrential downpour. well, being the kid-at-heart that i am, i convinced my hubby to play in the rain with me, and like the wonderful, fun, fun-loving, best-friend-of-mine that he is, it didn't take too much convincing and he was right out there with me.  the thing is, it may have sounded like a good idea, and it may have been fun (and it was!) - but ten minutes after we came in and dried off and realized his wedding ring was gone we resolved that it might not have been the best idea after all.  i spent a good couple of hours scouring the ground all around our apartment building, under cars, in bushes, and in the apartment just in case it fell off after we came in.  no such luck.  we quickly came to the same gross conclusion:: it was gone. we are about 98% sure that it got swept down the sewer/drain/ravine/thingy at the end of our parking lot.

so we spent the evening browsing local jewelers trying to find his ring, or a similar ring, but to no avail. after the third jewelry store we started to realize that ordering it online was the way to go - so home we came, and ordered a new ring we did. (you can call me yoda.) so in 3-5 days he'll have his new ring.

i feel pretty sick to my stomach about the whole thing, and feel like i need to take some kind of responsibility for it since it was i that talked him into playing in the rain. yuck. today was the kind of day that i wish we had a "rewind" button for.
