Well here is a side effect of SP I wasn't expecting! I mentioned earlier that Joe has lost 10 pounds on my SP plan. Apparently it came out of his hand because we lost his wedding ring. The other day he was washing his hands and it flew off in the sink. He caught it but it was quite a surprise.
Then over the weekend, while we were packing up his garage, he apparently lost his wedding ring and we didn't notice until later that night. We've gone through all the boxes and can't find it, checked all over the house, and have asked our renters to check too. So far, nothing. We even went out into the chicken coop to see if it came off there when he was helping me tote water over to them. But alas, he remains ringless.
We've been married now 4 months. When we got the ring, it seemed - I don't know - awkward, if that makes any sense. We had procrastinated in getting one so when it came, it looked bulky on his hand and almost uncomfortable. I suggested we send it back and try to find another, but he said it was pretty and he liked it.
So rather than get upset about it, I told him we should take it as a sign to get him the ring he really liked when we were shopping. It was a hammered white gold band that really fit him. In fact, this weekend is his birthday and maybe the timing is just perfect.
And I get to say, with this ring, I thee wed ... again!
