I know it's seemingly inconsequential in light of ALL of our troubles - but if anyone has some juju to spare or a magic "finder" chant or a prayer to St. Anthony, or whatever - I would greatly appreciate it. I've worn it nearly constantly for 16 years. H gave it to me when I found out I was pregnant with pc15. And now it's just gone. (difficult child has not been home, so no worries about him filching it. And we don't have pets, and no one has been in the house but our family) I've emptied my drawers twice, emptied my closet, sorted thru every vacuum bag, garbage can, coat pocket, purse and car. I've turned my entire house upside down. I've called every place I've been in the past week. I can't even remember when I had it last. I think I wore it on Saturday and took it off to wear a silver necklace instead. But I don't know. I can't remember. It has 3 stones to represent our 3 boys and I can't help but feel this is a bad omen. I know it's crazy talk but it's been a sucky year and this was a gift from a much happier (and prosperous) time in our lives. Seems like nothing is going right and nothing has gone right for a long time. Between my fight with my mom & the estrangement with my son - Mother's day is not something I am looking forward to. My nose still hurts and it's healing UGLY and out of whack. My clothes are tight, money's tight, my work life is in a upheaval, H & I had our huge biannual fight over the weekend, my laptop died, I've had my period for 28 days straight and now my beloved necklace has vanished. So - if anyone has any magic to spare - I could use a little luck right now. Thanks.
