Lovely readers, yesterday was THE WORST day ever. I’ve heard plenty of stories over the years about women who lose their wedding rings and now I know first hand just how terrible it is…
(a very awkward picture of my now-naked left hand)
Remember how I’m trying to be better about sunscreen? Yesterday, I slipped off my ring to apply my SPF. Rather than placing it by our toothbrushes in our bathroom (like I usually do), I placed it in my bra. I rushed out the door and drove across the city to a friend’s house to take care of her dog while she was away for the day. I was in her backyard, her bathroom… all over her house, really. THEN, I took her dog to a local dog park and played around for an hour or so.
I noticed that my ring was gone toward the end of my time at the dog park, but I assumed it was next to our toothbrushes in the bathroom because that’s where I ALWAYS keep it when my ring is off. It wasn’t until I got home that I remembered putting the ring in my bra, and by then it was gone.
To be honest, I’m devastated. We’ve looked everywhere. I’m working with a ring finder to get him to bring a metal detector to the dog park, but there’s a chance that the ring isn’t even there. There’s a part of me that’s still holding out hope that it will be found, but the other part of me feels like it’s extremely unrealistic.
Ugh… I’m sorry for the not-so-happy post this morning, but I try to keep the blog honest and this is all I can think about today.
Have you ever lost an important piece of jewelry? Were you able to find it? Any tips or tricks? Please share them in the comments!
