We were out doing touristy things today because my sister-in-law is in town. For some reason I looked for my husband's wedding ring while he was paying for us to go on a tour of a ranch. It wasn't there. I mouthed to him "where is your ring?" I'll tell you later, he says. So when the lady walked away I asked him again. Not only did he lose his wedding ring, but he lost it almost 4 months ago. We went home for a visit for my daughter's first birthday and baptism. He lost the ring there. It's in his mom's yard God knows where. He says it must've slipped off. I'm so crushed. I'm upset that he lost it, but what's worse is that he hid it from me for four months. I'm really mad that he didn't tell me when it happened because I feel like at least we could've had a ton of people looking for it. He only told his brothers and he says they looked for it, but we could have had multiple metal detectors and retraced his steps. Now I know there's no hope. If it was in the yard it's been eaten up by the mower.
Honestly, I wish he had just gone out and bought a new one and never told me. Now every time I look at his replacement ring (that he still doesn't have) I'm going to think about how that's not the ring I gave to him on our wedding day. I'm wondering what his plan was. I guess he was just hoping I would never notice. I feel like an idiot for not noticing. His brothers knew when it happened and several of his co-workers know. We even celebrated our 3rd anniversary in June and I didn't notice that my husband didn't have his wedding ring. Just needed to vent.
