My favorite story of the weekend:
I had just finished folding the laundry in the laundry room and was about to fold up the rug on the floor. (A quick turn in the dryer cleans it right up.) As I began folding the edges I noticed something sparkly on the rug. The thoughts that ran through my head, “There’s a rhinestone. I wonder what that came off of. Oh well, I won’t bother to pick it up and the dryer will take care of it.” Then I realized nothing in the wash would have had a rhinestone on it. At this point I looked at my left hand and realized my diamond was missing from my engagement ring.
Not only was I lucky that it fell out and I noticed right away, I was lucky I didn’t lose it in the dryer!
