I can’t believe it – for the first time in 7 months, I forgot to put my ring on before leaving for work this morning. I was typing an email at work and thought “hmm, something feels off.” I look down and . . . *gasp* . . . my left ring finger in naked!
After a brief moment of panic (“I didn’t lose it. I couldn’t have lost it. I didn’t lose it . . . did I?”), I figured I never took it out of its little dish after getting ready. My morning routine was thrown out of whack (I mean, I almost forgot to feed the cat this morning!) and I missed the step prior to putting on the ring, so I then missed the subsequent step of actually putting it on. I did send my FH a quick email to double-check that’s where it was (he was working from home this morning) and almost asked him to stop by my office on his way to work so I could rid myself of this awful naked feeling I’ve had all day. But stopped myself. However, when I get home, I can tell you what my first step will be after taking off my shoes.
How do you guys react when you realize you forgot to put on one small, sparkly, expensive thing?

Oh I know what you mean! I feel like I’m missing my hand if I don’t wear my rings out. Honestly, if I can, I usually go back home and get it but I wouldn’t leave work for it or anything. Just if I was going to the store or something.

@JoJo Bananas – It must be something in the air!

I hate when I do that! I feel so off all day.

It feels so weird to have a “naked” finger and it shocks me that I feel this way b/c I never wore jewelry before I got my e-ring.
Hubby’s ring is getting resized this week and he said it feels weird without it too, he’s only been wearing it for 4 months!

Ahhh! I did it once and realized it while driving to work then turned around and was late to work. lol. I only take it off to wash my face. So sorry your day wasnt “sparkling” as usual. : ) But it does feel like a peice of you is missing when you forget it!

I’ve done stuff like that before – not with my ring, ’cause I never take it off, but I know how you feel! It drives me nuts!

My ring broke on Saturday, so I have been without it since then! My hand feels totally naked! And I am a twitcher, so I reach to twirl my ring around my finger about 30 times a day, and it’s not there 🙁

@blondiebee – I’ve done that too, turned around after leaving the house. It was mostly b/c I knew my ring was sitting by the sink and I was afraid the cat would play with it and lose it. Then again, I’m sure I’d find it under the stove with the rest of his toys :-p

@otb -I do the same thing I twist and play with it all the time. I hate those days when I forget my ring. I have never worn rings until I got my engagement ring so it is funny that I miss it so much when I don’t have it.

I left mine several times right after getting engaged. It does feel like you’re naked when you forget it!

@Daiseybride- lol your cats sound cute!
@otb- omg so sorry your ring broke! You must be lost with out it. I constantly twirl my rings. They are too big so they spin alot. I have to give up my ring for a few days to get it sized sometime. But I dont want to. 🙁

I was having my ring sized and ran into into one of my superiors on the street who just pointedly kept staring at my hand as if I had been jilted. Ugh. I enjoyed running into him a week later with a very sparkly ring on my hand.

I am so afraid of doing this! I won’t even run out to get milk without it on! And now FI has me putting it in a new spot since the old one was too near a sink and I keep forgetting to put it on!!
