Mind Over Matter

I know you've been concerned and I just wanted to let you know that I got the ring off my finger.

It's been days now, and I passed by the bag of Pita Chips on my counter and sighed. I decided to give it another go, practically dismembering my Windex-coated hand. With a concentrated breathing technique and closed eyes I twisted that thing right off, well, thing is that I imagined it so vividly in my mind and thought I'd slid it right off and opened my eyes to see it hadn't even BUDGED. But I focused even harder and long story short it's off. I am not sure if my finger will always be this misshapen? And that skin will grow back. But all is well.

Last night we took the kids to dinner. I truly do enjoy going out to eat, all six of us. Only, in this diner we didn't fit anywhere and had to take up two booths. And look how sweet Carter & Gray are.

Of course this was the very next shot. (Thankfully moments earlier I confiscated his knife.)

  1. thanks for the update on the ring. :) it definitely made me laugh.

    and yay for a family that takes up two booths!

  2. So glad you got the ring off! Your boys look adorable in those pictures, you'd never think their untensils were about to be confiscated! :)

  3. Glad your finger is free. I have had a ringless finger for about a year now because of a diamond that I can't afford to reattach. Sigh...

  4. i hope and pray that i someday have a family that takes up two booths. and thank goodness your ring came off! that makes me super anxious, when a ring gets stuck. i would've had to medicate myself. :)

  5. This is my first time visiting your blog and I love it. I'm a new follower!

  6. Oh good! And yes, skin will totally grow back. Just think of it as...a beauty mark!


  7. Ouch!

    I'd post a comment of more substance but your description gave me a flashback to suppressed memories from wedding ring shopping and now I'm trying to forget about missing skin due to rings (let's just say that the salesperson was not gentle). Hope your finger is on the mend and that there was no knuckle bruising.


Your comment is gonna totally make my day!
