Ok this frigging ring...

The other day I am going around the house, doing household stuff like taking out the garbage, and realize my ring isnt on my hand. The damn thing is too big to begin with, and now that its cold out my fingers are shrinking a bit.

Look everywhere... nothing.

Go back outside, bring the garbage back in, sort through the garbage elbow deep in crap... nothing. Wife gets home, and I come clean, I lost my ring.

She finds it 10 minutes later on my computer chair.

Arg.

When working outside in the cold, I used to loose my old ring in gloves all the time. I would pull my glove off and the ring would slide right off inside the glove.

typical woman, finding something in 10 minutes that I've spent hours looking for, then she has the audacity to say, "Oh look... it's RIGHT HERE".

When I go to the Y, I undo two eyelets of laces on a shoe and tie my ring into the shoelaces - all so that the knurled steel barbells don't mess it up. Then I forget to put it back on and freak out because I can't find it.

I should have seen the warning signs. The next week after this thread started I lost my wedding ring. Some where between taking it off, putting it in my pocket to bottle apple cider and getting to my parents for dinner it went MIA. Luckily I followed my dad advice; get insurance on my wifes jewelry and my ring for lost/stolen coverage in addition to the homeowners policy.

The apple cider tastes like crap but we are in the processed of getting my replacement ring.

I actually spend a lot of time with my ring off. I don't wear it while working and usually not when I'm just around the house. Also, like creamy, it slips off easy this time of year when it's cold. What helps to not lose it (same goes for keys) is always put it in the same place every time I take it off. And never put it in my pocket. I've managed to go almost nine years without damaging or losing it.
Now that I'm typing this I'm thinking I'll probably lose it now.

+1 for white gold. I can scrape it and ding it up and it'll polish out like new. That said, I've lost at least 65lbs since I got married nearly 9yrs ago and the damned thing won't stay on my finger. I've lost it at least 4 times in as many months. Once was in a pile of leaves about 2 feet deep but I somehow managed to find it. Took it to a jeweler a while back, and for him to re size it as much as it needs it would cost almost as much as a new ring. It's a low profile ring, so there isn't a lot to it. Guess I'll be dealing with it as is for a little longer.

I had a pretty typical story. I coach at a strength and conditioning gym on the side and found myself taking my ring off almost every day. (I wouldn't wear it at the gym because the bars would cause it to pinch my skin and rip off my calluses.) Last year for Christmas, the wife surprised me with a trip to the tattoo artist (my first and only) and now I don't have to take it off or resize it!
