In less than a week I will be celebrating my 8th wedding anniversary with my highschool sweetheart. We just passed the 13th anniversary of our first date a few weeks ago and had smooth sailing over that dreaded “7-year itch.” We have been through a lot this year — job changes, loss, navigating the school year and one of our children going through a 2.5 month sickness and surgery.
I am not sure if we will be doing anything to mark our anniversary this year, but one thing did happen that already has been worried I have jinxed this year. I am still kicking myself over it — it’s upset me more than it seems to bother my understanding husband, but I am hoping this isn’t a sign of the year that will come.
I LOST MY WEDDING RINGS.
Both my engagement ring and my wedding ring. I am devastated and have searched everywhere. I
know hope they are still in the house — I don’t take them off anywhere but at home, but with a toddler in the house who just loves to get into e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g — who knows were they’ve landed. I take them off when I am cooking sometimes and have to get my hands dirty or when it’s mega humid and my fingers swell (which is totally these past few weeks). The two places I normally place them have been searched and torn apart and searched again… no luck.
I know I would be so angry if my husband lost his ring, but he is so understanding and hasn’t made me feel bad for a second about it — I am doing enough of that myself though. My hand feels naked and who know when they will reappear.
Have you ever lost your rings? Did they reappear, did you get a replacement? I am toying with the idea of getting a tattoo on my ring finger, so I don’t have to worry about this happening again.
Updated August 21, 2012: A few days ago I found my engagement ring! It was deep in one of the toy bins in the kids playroom. When Bean (my youngest) saw I had it she was VERY insistent that I “give it back to her”. So, I am guessing she took it. Today I found my wedding band! There it was staring at me as I unloaded a load of laundry from the washing machine! Our laundry room is just off the kids playroom, so I am assuming that Bean took both to play with. SO happy I have found them!Share This Post: Tweet
