Anyway, we both decided that since we were doing a lot of work on the house (replaced a patio door, about to tear out and replace our living room carpet and remove wallpaper to paint), and since we have two small trips planned(my husband is taking the kids camping, and we are all going to Washington DC)presents this year weren't necessary. We were just going to go out to dinner.
Well I, also now known as super idiot, at least went along with the "no-gift" plan-my husband didn't. He has heard me talk off and on about maybe getting a plain gold wedding band to wear when I don't want to wear my engagement ring/wedding band wrap combination. I have started taking them off when I'm at home because I don't want to lose a stone. (My wedding band wrap has two rubies and I have already had it to the jeweler to reinsert one of the stones-I'm afraid I won't know one has fallen out next time...)We were enjoying dinner when my husband asked for the time and when I turned back, a ring box was sitting in front of me-I now have my wedding band!

Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover. It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader. Are you up to the challenge? Here is this week's picture and my story
Police found Tara huddled in a blanket in the families’ backyard, but when they questioned her, she spoke not a word. Neighbors described the girl as an underachiever compared to her family –the mother, a former Rhodes Scholar and lawyer, her father a neurologist, and her brothers both honor students and great athletes.
Authorities say Tara finally cracked under pressure and killed her family, but social worker Monica Perry believes differently. She feels the pain of what really happened in that house has led to the girl’s silence, and she hopes to reveal just what Tara saw. (141 words)
This is a little dark even for me, and at first I was leaning towards the super natural side, but I never got there. I am very curious to see (lol, couldn't resist) what everyone else did!
