Not Even Recycled

I have sad news friends. After less than 7 years of marriage I have parted ways with my wedding bands.
Wedding Rings 2001-2008
I came home from my trip and found that my purse was absolutely crammed with dirt, crumbs and mysterious chunks of mystery. I removed all the non-trash items and shook the bag vigorously over the trash can to remove the rest of the grime.

Then this Friday I realized my fingers had un-swole after returning to the Pacific North West. For some reason the always swell up like melons when we go visit family in Utah. So I went to get my wedding bands out of the zipper compartment of my purse and found it unzipped and empty.

Suddenly I remembered that over a week ago I had dumped all the “trash” out into the garbage can. I’m 99% sure the rings went with it. So off they go to a landfill somewhere. Two more pieces of metal that will never be recycled.

I’m sick about the loss but Dan says, “Everyone makes mistakes.” Marrying him was not one of them.

    I’m with Proud Daughter of Eve; maybe one of your small people has them and is the reason that pocket was unzipped. What with all the hullabaloo that must have surrounded noticing them gone I bet it would be hard to say, “No, I have them.” I know it’s not nearly the same, but I thought I lost my keys for 3 days. I looked EVERYWHERE and even at the grocery store where I know I had them last (searched under cars in the parking lot, bugged them about their Lost and Found twice). Then I opened up a backpack that I use for spare kids’ clothes when we are out on long trips and there they were. I know I didn’t have that with me at the grocery store. How did they get there? Who knows.

    Don’t give up hope (even if you get a replacement under the fabulous carat/year plan)!

    I did almost this same thing a month or so ago. My fingers were swollen so I took the rings off and placed them in the zipper part of my wallet and then at a gas station, I paid with the correct change, forgot to rezip and poof. They were gone. Unfortunately, the diamond engagement ring had been in my husband’s family for many years. I was devastated but he was so sweet and understanding. Sounds like we both married sweethearts 🙂
