So after the course of events the other morning that all took place during a 10 minute period of time, I've decided that I must have a guardian angel.
While I was changing Little Sissy's diaper the other day, she handed me something that I thought she had picked up off the floor. I will admit it looked like a gem sort of thing, but I didn't really think much of it. I figured it was one of Big Sissy's gem stickers and threw it in the trash.
A few minutes later, I was filling up my water bottle to take with me for the day. (Thankfully, our water dispenser is not on the outside of our fridge door but rather on the inside of the fridge so it requires two hands to fill a water bottle.) So as I began to fill my water bottle by holding the water bottle with my right hand and pushing the button with my left hand, I noticed that my diamond was no longer in my engagement ring.
I immediately panicked and then I realized my diamond was the little sticker gem that I had thrown away in Little Sissy's room when I was changing her diaper. I ran to her room and carefully yet quickly went through her trash can and found my diamond.
I couldn't believe how lucky I was in the sequence of events. If I had lost that diamond anywhere else I don't know if I would have ever found it and if I hadn't filled up my water bottle who knows when I would have realized it and where all I would have searched for my diamond.
So for now, my diamond and engagement ring are in a Ziploc bag in my bedroom waiting to be reset. I was kinda hoping that this was a sign to The Farmer that for our 11th anniversary in a little less than 2 weeks, he should have my diamond reset. I know that this is a long shot and that is OK. I'm just glad that I had a guardian angel watching over me and I found my diamond as we all know that diamonds are a girl's best friend.
