If I didn't have bad luck....

I'm sure you've heard, " If I didn't have bad luck, I wouldn't have any at all". That's me. Last week I was wearing, thankfully not real, a peridot necklace. I unfortunately lost the stone and cannot wear it anymore. I was wearing it in place of a white gold necklace that Jason and the kids got me for Mother's Day, but I messed up the chain. I couldn't find the receipt so I couldn't go back to the jewelry store to check in to the warranty. Well, as if Halloween couldn't be any crazier, I lost a diamond out of my engagement ring. I cannot wear it anymore because one, it looks tacky and two, the posts scratch my pinky finger when they rub against it. Well, a new diamond would cost more than the ring so now I'm going to have to get a new ring. Not an item I was looking to spend money on. Jason was going to replace that ring on our 10 year anniversary, but that's 3 years away. So now, my wedding band is lonely and it's really sad that I don't have my ring. I feel naked.

Bummer! That really stinks. I guess you have to decide if bad luck or no luck is better! Probably in your case you'd lean towards no luck huh! I'm so sad for your wedding band but hopefully you'll just get a nice friend to join you for Christmas! Although, I've found it's hard to spend money on these types of things after we are married. I wonder why that is?

I know what you mean. I can think of alot of other things I could spend that amount of money on. I'm actually getting used to just having only my wedding band on. I may just wait. Maybe when the economy is better or it's our 10th Anniversary.
