It's been awhile. Again.

I always tend to do this with online journals. I mean, I check both LiveJournal and Dreamwidth every day, but it seems like I never have anything to write about. If I do manage to write about anything, it usually tends to be related to gaming somehow.

Maybe I should work on that. New year, and all that.

All in all, the holidays were pretty uneventful. I got a deep fryer for Christmas, along with a few shirts and some lotion. My parents also took everyone out to Olive Garden for my birthday, which was pretty fun since only Ness and I had eaten there before (my family can be a bit picky about food that isn't just meat and potatoes... yay, farm life).

New Year's Eve weekend was also relatively boring. Ness and I stayed at home and played games most of the weekend. We also went to the grocery store, which normally wouldn't be worth mentioning, but it was the only time we left the house since Friday. I know, I know... we're so exciting.

I also had my Lord of the Rings Online account stolen this weekend. Once I hear back from Turbine, I'm canceling my account... I just can't be bothered to start over from scratch right now. Maybe I'll get some motivation later.

On the bright side, cutting down on my MMO time will give me a chance to get started on some craft projects I have planned for this year. I'm taking part in a few crochet-alongs on Ravelry, which should help me get a head start for this year's Christmas gifts, along with a craft show or two that I'm planning on participating in. Most of my crochet-along projects are still in the planning stages; I need to choose yarn colors for an afghan square and a shawl, along with picking out a different shawl pattern for another group. I also have a scarf and pair of fingerless gloves to finish for my "just for funsies" projects, but those shouldn't take too long to complete.

Oh, well... here's to busy fingers in 2010!

There have been quite a few things going on the past few weeks, most of which are of the Not Good variety. Awesome.

Most recently (and most important), my grandma was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday. Apparently her doctor found water in the sac around her heart and had her taken to the local hospital here. They kept her overnight, were unable to treat her (big shock), so they transferred her to Spectrum's heart center in Grand Rapids. She'll probably be there for a few days, but the doctors are taking good care of her; she's improved a lot since being transferred.

Random L4D fun-time thing: When we got on the elevator to go to my grandma's room, Ness turned to me and we had this lovely conversation:

Ness: "We've been immune so far, but if I start to turn, promise you'll shoot me."
Moi: "What if your beard starts to turn? Can I shoot that?"

... yeah. We've gotta stop playing Left 4 Dead. But anyway...

The other major thing going on is that my sister is getting a divorce. She found out earlier this month that her husband had been cheating on her for about a year or so. I don't know all the details, but she's a mess and it's causing a lot of stress for everyone (mainly because her soon-to-be ex-husband convinced her to drop out of high school [twice!] and insisted that she stay unemployed). The real mess starts next week in court, since all the adoption crap for my niece has to be started again. I'm just glad I'm not directly involved.

It hasn't all been bad, though. Ness and I drove around on Wednesday and found this nifty little miniature golf course/arcade in Newaygo that neither of us knew about. We thought about stopping to play, but it started raining (with hail!) so hard that we could hardly see the road. Instead, we (slowly) drove over to the Hesperia Variety Store to see what goodies they had for cheap. I found a metric shit ton of yarn on sale, so I picked a bunch up for future projects. I bought four skeins of Lion Brand Jiffy for two different shawls I have to make, along with a bunch of cotton so that I can do some pot holders and hot pads or whatever.

The Baby Food Festival also started this week. I really didn't want to go to that thing, but the library was having a used book sale and I couldn't pass that up. We got a few books on Thursday, but we went back again this morning to pick up a few books for my grandma to read. I'm glad we did, too, because apparently today is the end of sale and they dropped their prices on everything. They were selling plastic grocery bags full of books for only $3.00, including antique and hardcover books. We didn't get as many books as we wanted, but we walked out with quite a haul.

Oh, and still no luck on the lost engagement ring. :(

I would continue, but I think I've rambled enough for one day.

So, I lost my engagement ring last night and I still have no idea where it is. Needless to say, I am Not Very Happy.

All I remember is setting it on Ness' desk yesterday for some reason or another and, when I came back, it was gone. I instantly panicked and proceeded to turn the room upside-down looking for it, but I'm still empty-handed. Ugh.

It's obvious, but I suspect the cats had something to do with it. Even so, I know they couldn't have taken it very far and I'd be very surprised to find it outside the room it was lost in. Regardless, I've checked every air vent in the house, under all the furniture, and even sifted through the trash can that Ness keeps in his room (I don't recommend this activity). I guess my last resort is to get my hands on a metal detector and take the kitties in for X-rays, unless the ring disappeared into some weird hammerspace, in which case I'm just SOL.

Normally I wouldn't be so upset over jewelry, but this is my engagement ring. Not only that, but it was the ring my dad proposed to my mom with, so... yeah.

I hope I find it soon. I really don't want to have to explain to my mom that I lost her ring.
