With This Ring

It is a very good thing my daughter was not around yesterday. I have not worn my wedding ring for many months, since it is way too big. I have a ring guard, which is a strip of gold that is supposed to keep my ring smaller. Unfortunately, the ring guard bends and then my ring is way too big once again. My ring had sat in my near my elliptical for a long time until I thought I better move it before the kids did. Thinking no one would ever look in my sock drawer, that seemed like a logical place to keep it. Yesterday, I went to look for the ring since we were headed out to do some errands that are much simpler to do without 4 kids. We went to Target for drapes, Walmart for more drapes and we were going to the jewelry store to get my ring resized. Alas, I was wrong about no one going into my sock drawer. The ring was not there. My wife decided to give my daughter a "call" and she admitted to playing with it. At least, I knew I was not crazy because I could have swore the last place I put it was my sock drawer. After looking all over the house, I did find it on the floor along with a bunch of toys.

Today, I am proudly wearing it once again even though it is huge and I will be taking it in to get resized at which time I will never take it off again.

Andrew is getting fit said...

I'm not wearing mine at the moment for the same reason. I found it on the floor in my office as it had slipped off my finger. I'm getting it resized soon and then it won't come off again as well. :)

Since I lost weight right before I got married, my ring fit for a while. Then as I gained, at some point I had to take it off. My biggest no-scale victory was the day I was able to start wearing it again!

Wo-ow. Finding toys in sock drawers, huh?
...the things kids do...
and having the opposite problem with pregnancy, I'll have to make sure to hide my diamonds when they get too small with the next baby some day!

I'm so proud we got a beach confession out of her! Although she says she found it on the dresser, at least she admitted she was playing with it!
