The Day Before The Day of Travel

So, I had oodles and oodles of errands to do today, in preparation for my trip to Boston (SQUEE!) and also, other commitments to finish up for this week.
As you may have read, my grandparents came to stay Wednesday night in order to attend a medical appointment, so I played hostess. As part of that commitment, I also had promised to drive them to the hospital and pick them up. So I embarked at the very early hour of 8 am (shut up, I never leave that early), and then head out with Jen to pick up the things I needed for my trip.
Also - I purchased a new nose ring - since the one that I had lost its pretty jewel. Actually I purchased four. The jeweler had a buy one get one 50% off, and so I picked out four lovely little noserings. Sounds nice doesn't it? NO.
After getting home and trying for 20 minutes to get the cursed gods on my side to ease it in, I dropped the stupid thing down the sink. Then, after another ten minutes with another one, my nose started to bleed and? Problem number two - I now had a ring free hole that was getting ready to close up before my very eyes.
One phone call later, I was frantically on my way to the piercer for some professional help. Toting along one of the other remaining beauties, I headed in there. Of course, as I enter the shop, my cell rings and my grandparents need to be picked up. ASAP. And I have to go back to my house to get their car. Problem number three, the piercer informed me that the tail of the nosering too small for my nose. In fact, she tells me that usually, those noserings purchased from jewelers don't fit and so she often has to modify them. Unwilling to weaken the gold stud, I opted to purchase a simple one from her display.
Nose ring in place, I'm now still continuing to attempt to retrieve the dropped nosering from the sink. Actually, as I type my father is attacking the J bend in hopes of finding the needle in the haystack. Without said ring, I cannot return the others to get a full refund. If I can't get it, I'll have to settle for only a third of the money I shelled out, and dammit! There's a pretty necklace I'd like to get in exchange.

Today sucks.

Just sayin'.

***UPDATE: Dad got the nosering from the drain (YAY!) and I've returned them all, and purchased the pretty necklace I drooled over. Look for it in upcoming Boston pics! ****
