I Lost My Wedding Ring.

Hi Guys! Thanks for hanging out with me. I hope you are all doing well. I think this will be my first post in 2021. I haven’t gotten around to writing much, but life happens and I write when I can. Anyway, let me stop rambling on and get on with today’s post.

Last week I lost my wedding ring. I was getting ready to leave work so I gathered all my things. I put my coat on the back of one of the chairs in our break room and my lunch bag on the table. I put my purse on the chair. I washed my hands and when I was finished, I dried them and reached into my purse to get out the lotion. I sat my lotion down on the table and I took off my wedding ring to Lotion up my hands.

Just so you know, I always take off my ring when I have to lotion my hands. I mean honestly who doesn’t remove their jewelry when they have to lotion or oil up their hands? When I took my ring off I placed it on the table next to my lunch bag. After I finished moisturizing my hands I put my sweater on and I could have sworn I put my ring back on. I put my lotion back in my purse and put on my coat.

I grabbed my purse and lunch bag and proceeded to clock out for the day. Once I made it home, I put my things down and made a cup of tea and had some cake. I went up stairs to take my shower because it was self care Tuesday and I always take my ring off before I get in the shower or go to bed. I didn’t realize until around noon that I didn’t have my ring. I was about to get in the bed and noticed that my ring was not on my finger.

So of course I started freaking out and looking everywhere. I checked all my usual places and I didn’t see my ring anywhere. The bathroom, my nightstand, my dresser, my chest, and the kitchen table. I checked my lunch bag, my purse, and still nowhere to be found. I checked my car and still nothing. This leads me to believe that I left it at work on the table. Days have gone by and still, I haven’t found it anywhere in my house. I did call my job to see if someone turned it in, but I haven’t heard anything else about it. Which also lets me believe that someone found it and kept it.

I was really upset that I lost my wedding ring. Now I have nothing to show from the day I got married. My husband was supportive about it but I’m still not happy about it. The hubby did say don’t worry because it was time for an upgrade. Short backstory when we got married we didn’t go out and buy really expensive rings and we didn’t do an engagement ring at all.

We just got wedding bands and that’s it. So my fingers are naked and if anyone ever looked at my hands they wouldn’t think I was a married woman. It’s a very weird feeling not having my wedding band. I feel like I’m missing a part of me. I can’t believe that I lost it. I know one thing, I can’t wait to get this upgrade. I also know that I should have been more careful with my prize possession. What would you do if this happened to you? Leave a comment down below and let’s talk about it.

Valentine’s Day.

Hey guys! Thanks for hanging out with me. I hope you’re all doing well on this fabulous Sunday. Today is February 14, 2021, and I hope you all still remember to social distance.

Okay, not to be a party pooper but Valentine’s Day is a bit overrated. It’s the time of the year when companies make a killing off of the love of other people. This one day when we go out and shop to buy cards, flowers, candy, dinner dates, etc…… Don’t get me wrong there was a time when I was all for Valentine’s day.

Taking the time to decide what I was going to buy and how I was planning the evening. Of course when I was dating my husband. Now that we’ve been married for 12 yrs and together forever, I don’t truly need to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Every day is Valentine’s day for me and my husband. Every once in a while we may buy each a card and he surprises me with flowers.

If we do anything for Valentine’s day it’s a family thing. We incorporate my daughter. We buy a card for her and give her a small piece of chocolate, or stuffed animal, and my husband and I will exchange a valentines day card. But this morning I made sure to tell him not to buy any Valentine’s day cards. He asked me why not? I told him because we don’t need to. He said but I love you, and I told him that I know and I love him too. That’s all that really matters. We don’t need one day to say I love you to each other when we say it and express it every day in our household.

I will admit that yesterday I did contemplate picking up V-day cards for everyone but this morning I knew I would be running out to grab my coffee from Duncan Donuts and I could just get it then. I realized why go through all the hustle and spending money when I don’t have to. We know what mean to each other and I don’t need Valentine’s day to validate that. Don’t get me wrong I’m not judging anyone who wants to celebrate Valentine’s day cause I have done in the past. I’m just stating that at this point in my life I don’t need to do that. Valentine’s day is just another day like all the rest of the holidays.

What’s your stance on Valentine’s Day? Do you celebrate or is it just another day for you? Let me know down in the comments. Happy reading 🥰 and I’ll see you around the blogs.
