My 'Diamonds' episode!

Tuesday, August 19, 2008

I've had a few Everybody loves Raymond moments in the last few months - one of which happened this morning & it's strange but it's no where near as funny in real life as when it happens as on that show!! Now I know I haven't told you this before, but I am a big Everybody Loves Raymond fan!! It's true - I even went so far as having my life mimic art " I have a daughter Ellie & twin boys!!" LOL (Seriously we would never have nicknamed her Ellie if we had have known we were going to have identical twin boys next - but God springs these surprises on you!!)
Anyway this morning I lost my engagement ring - No Dave didn't take it to get a bigger stone put in (like in the 'diamonds' ELR episode). Unfortunately one of the twins had gotten into my makeup drawer & must have accidentally grabbed it with the tube of hand cream he pulled out. I always thought Debra's reaction of breaking into tears & then ransacking the house when she lost her engagement ring to be extreme - but that's exactly what I did. I called Dave at work & couldn't speak because I was so upset & then I pulled apart that end of the house - I even undressed the twins just to make sure it wasn't stuck in their clothes. Definitely not funny while it was happening - however I will laugh about it in days to come undoubtedly! After giving up searching, I fed the lambs & was walking back up the hallway (that I must have been up & down 10 times since losing the ring) & casually looked down & there it was on the floor! Back where it belongs!!

Oh, how scary Renata! I have lost mine once before and can relate to the "freaking-out" reaction!! It too showed up thankfully. SO glad you found yours. :)

What a relief!!! If I take mine off to make some dough or something and then forget to put it back on I freak out when I suddenly realise it isnt there! My heart doesnt slow down again till it's back on my hand. One day I took it off in the morning and then went out for the day forgetting to put it back on, then realised about an hour out unable to duck home and spent the day in a panic that perhaps I had put it back on, forgot, and lost it somewhere and it wouldnt be on the coffee machine when I got home at 7 that night!!! I am sure the worry that day lost me 5 years off my life! I probably should put it somewhere safer than the top of the coffee machine when I take it off...

So glad you found it! I would be in 100% panic mode if I couldn't find my any of my rings.
