I love my little circlet of white gold. Housed on the middle finger of my right hand…a perfect (albeit obscure) reminder of my first Ex Husband.
It’s always been a bit big for that finger. There’s some resistance in getting it over the knuckle, but not much. It rolls around my finger effortlessly, yet is still secure enough to sleep, shower, do dishes, housework, etc…with it on.
The kids and I went for our traditional laundry day at the ‘mat on Tuesday. Nothing special about it – grabbed some takeout, shoved clothing in machines, added detergent & coins, spun some poi (the kids) & read the kindle (me).
When I pulled my stuff out of the washer, I heard the familiar scraping of metal in the bottom of the tub. My first thought was: Must have left a quarter in the pocket of one of my pants.
I was a bit shaken to find my ring. It had slipped off without me being the wiser to its loss.
It escaped AGAIN when unloading the dryer – it wanted to hang with my socks and ended up at the bottom of my laundry bag. I found it the next day (after being convinced I’d lost it on the walk home) when sorting the underthings.
JOY for second reunion, but – when am I gonna lose it for good???
I’ve been doing the ketosis thing for around 9 months, and this is the first serious snag I’ve found in losing some of the tonnage…my FINGERS are shrinking, too.
So what’s a girl to do????
Now…I didn’t want to have the ring resized…the ring snuggies out there look both damn uncomfortable and unsightly, and I can’t switch it to a different finger, as they’re ALL losing their pudge.
I went shopping.
Found a new 3mm band, in my size, and slipped that in front of the larger ring.
Mr. First Ex Me’s ring now has a partner in crime 😀
