Well...So Much For THAT Idea...

You aren't going to believe this, but the watch broke! Sigh...the pin came out.

Maybe I'm not destined to get a watch because, what I didn't say earlier is, I had picked out and bought the watch (and earrings) and went out to my car. I wanted to wear it right away and noticed at that time that the second hand wasn't moving~the battery was dead, so I trooped back into the store and got another one (they only had the two of this style). When we were at swim class this afternoon, I lifted my arm up to pull out more yarn for the giraffe I'm working on and the watch was barely hanging on my wrist. I hadn't pulled it on anything, the pin just fell out. This also explains why I didn't go back in when the earrings hurt, I didn't want to go back another time. Oh well, I'll return them and look around for something else. My hands still feel great, though, and my teeth ARE clean, so all is not lost. LOL

Oh dear. That's really sad - it's such a pretty watch, too!

I'm glad you can return them and I'm glad you had your teeth cleaned (sure wish my dentist would pamper my hands while I wait!) and then there's that BUTTERFLY cookie cutter . . . all in all not a bad day . . .

Hugs.

What a bummer, and so pretty, too! Macy's should be good about exchanging it or giving you credit.I kinda love that store... There's one in Grand Forks.

The bracelet Erin made is beautiful! And the cookie cutter so cute!

And wow! If my dentist offered such wonder amenities, I might be willing to go a bit more often. LOL. I've never done the paraffin thing but hear it's wonderful. Good for you. You deserve a little pampering once in a while!!

Happy Wednesday, sweet friend!!

BUMMER! The watch is so pretty, but it needs to be durable too. Show us what you get after you return it.

I can't wait to see the giraffe. I love your crocheted animals.

I can't tell you how many watches I have, and don't wear. I haven't worn one for years. Now I have my cell phone with me all the time and that is my "watch" LOL Yours is really pretty too. Glad you can get a new one..

What a bummer about your new watch...and earrings too. ;( I'm sure you'll be able to find something else though since Macy's is such a nice store. Be sure to show us what you get! ;)

The bracelet that Erin made for you is so gorgeous! And the cookie cutter is very pretty too. What a sweet friend she is!

Ordinarily I really dislike going to the dentist office, but coming out with clean teeth is a wonderful feeling. Too bad our dentist office doesn't pamper and spoil us like yours does! Lucky you!! The hair salon I go to offers the hot parafin for your hands and feet (I've never dared to go for the foot option though -lol). Good stuff!

I'm so sad that your pretty watch broke. I hope you can find something else for you that you like just as much.
