So almost 23 years ago, when I was a skinny little bitch (less the 20ish in the title) and wed the big fella, my wedding band was a teeny little size 4.5. I’ve always had trouble getting it over my knuckle, but once on, it fit fine. In the past week or so, it’s seemed a bit tight. The other day the big fella and I went out for a brisk, long walk. It was fairly warm out and when we got back, my hands were a little swollen. Later that night I managed to get my ring off.
Yesterday, for some unknown reason, before I went out for my walk in the morning, I put my ring back on. My finger still felt a little puffy, but I did so anyway. When I got back from my walk, my hand felt puffy and after I had my shower, I tried to get my ring off. I ran cold water over my hand. I carried around a bag of frozen peas, etc. I tried soapy water, I tried dental floss under the ring then wound up my finger to snug the ring off. Nothing was working. The more I yanked on it, the fatter my finger was getting. My hand was starting to hurt and I was starting to freak the hell out! Auughh, get it off – GET IT OFF!!
I finally had to go out to the garage, get the big fella’s gardening shears/snips and cut it off. It actually looks/feels worse today for all the manhandling I did yesterday. So I need to see if the jewellers can size it up a half size or so. (I have some size 5 rings that I wear on my right hand and they fit fine on the left now.) That’s probably going to mess up the engraving on the inside of the ring. Or I might just get a plain gold band as a replacement. (And it cracked me up to see that I could buy one on Amazon for $98!)
Ande suggested I go see my doctor about the swelling (also because my one ankle has been swelling for no reason off and on). I told her he was just going to tell me I was fat and to lay off the chocolate and fries. I will walk and ride my bike more before I’ll give up the chocolate!
I saw this commercial the other day and looked on YouTube, but it wasn’t there. But now it is!! It’s how daycare would be if I ran it:
“good morning [scanning …] female child” Bwah ha ha!
The dogs were completely unconcerned that my finger was going to fall off … it wasn’t the hand that dishes out the cookies and chicken.
