Whew!

I’m sure you’re all dying to know how things turned out yesterday, so here is an update on my lost wedding ring.

When my husband got home, he carefully pulled the cabinet baseboard off the wall (I would have sawed it with a hacksaw personally, which is why I’m not in charge of baseboards or mishaps that require tools around here).

I honestly didn’t have much hope that it would be there, so I was putting our daughter to bed while he worked.

As I came out of her room, he was leaving the bathroom with the tools.

“Any luck?” I asked.

He looked over his shoulder at me and said, “I have no idea where it is, there was nothing back there.”

“FUCK…”

Blubbering tears start.

“I’m so sorry, honey. I have no idea where else it could have gone then. I’ve looked everywhere.”

He laughed and turned around with the ring on his pinky finger.

“Just kidding, it’s right here. I told you we’d find it. You worry too much.”

He almost didn’t survive this little joke.

But apparently, I am the queen of Wedding Ring Quarters. I still can’t believe it flew into this spider hole, but I’m happy and relieved anyway.

In fact, I’ve been smiling all day.

Thank you to everyone for your support and kind words yesterday!

    • Thank you, Jen! I was freaking out, mostly because it just seemed so unlikely that it actually had gone into this space. The hole was barely big enough for a ring to fit through.

  1. YAY!! I lost my wedding ring a couple of months ago. No big deal that it was a family heirloom from my husband’s side. :/ It was gone 3 days, until I found it in my fridge. I was a blubbering mess the whole time. Blogged about it twice too! I got it sized the day I found it. Now it won’t budge off my finger!

    • I thought of you and your lost ring posts a lot during this one. I’m so glad you found yours and that you’ve had it resized since then. I’ve heard of so many people recently finding theirs in the fridge or freezer!

  2. I’m happy you found it! Little tricksters, those wedding rings. I guess from your glee that it was a very nice reminder that you love and cherish what it represents for you. :)

  3. So glad you found it : ) It just makes all things right with the universe, doesn’t it? And you don’t feel like you are leaving home half-dressed. Or at least that is how I feel without mine.

  4. I’m so glad you found it. I had this 200$ necklace that fell off somehow at a friends house and I called this plumber friend I know who would make a fuss but would come. He retrieved it and the next day it did the same thing and I didn’t bother to call because of the trash I’d have to hear. I miss that necklace! Glad you found your ring, glad you have a great husband.

  5. Glad to know that the ring was found! I would have been climbing the walls, too, and I probably would have ripped the baseboard off the wall. Of course, my husband’s not much handier around the house than I am, so I’m not sure he would have done a neater job. ;)

  6. Haha, this was so funny, this and the previous post. I know it wasn’t funny at the time though! I’ve lost my engagement ring once (it was found in front of my office building – how nice of someone!) and then I lost it again, this time I never found it and I’m pretty sure I lost it en route back from the holidays… so it’s somewhere on a London motorway :/ at least I still got my wedding ring!

Okay, you talk now.
