Calling off the search

So, Sunday while folding, I glanced down and noticed that the DIAMOND HAD FALLEN OUT OF MY WEDDING RING!
YEP!
Sucks, huh!
No...Insurance doesn't cover it...only if it was stolen! Well it was!...by crappy Carma or fate or something.

Anyway, I'm calling off the search (Thank you Rachel...so much...for being the only other person that looked, and our husbands, I guess!)
It's hopeless!
I'm sad. It really wasn't much but it was the one that Dave gave me from down on his knee and that part breaks my heart. I don't want another one, I don't care! I want MINE BACK! But after clogged kitchen sinks, Baseball games at parks and a baby who puts everything in her mouth...I have given up hope! Actually, all my hope is on Birdie...but is it really worth it to go through her diapers for a week without any conclusive evidence that's where it is?

YEP!
Wait...I mean NOPE!~

I am really sorry, Beck. That is sad. I think it went down the drain.

Oh Becky. I am so sorry. You'll find it. Just stop looking and you'll find it.
It couldn't hurt to go through the diaper though. Just make sure you take pictures and blog about it. I'd love to see:)

Please - no poopy diaper pictures! I hope it turns up somewhere. I'll still keep my fingers crossed :)

Beck that makes my heart sink. I hope it turns up. Did that happen Sunday at the park? You never know, it may resurface - I'll think good thoughts.

I was SO hoping for the happy ending on this one :( I'm with Kami though, four prongs? Had to have been down the sink...

What bad luck! I thought I lost mine once and months later I found it stuck to the back of a nail polish bottle. Hope your story turns out similar. I am crossing my fingers and thinking of you! Good Luck!

I am sorry Becky! That really really SUCKS!!!!

Shauna said...

Beck, I am sorry for you. I don't think I could look through diapers for a week, yucko!

Granny said...

That absolutely breaks my heart. I wish I had a solution--I like to fix things, but shooooot!!! I agree with Amanda--stop looking for it and you'll find it. I hope.

Oh I am sad for you. I know EXACTLY how you feel.
I freak out before any party or gathering I have to make sure everything is perfect. About 3 hours before a party I looked at my wedding ring and my diamond and all the prongs to hold it were GONE! I cried and cried. I could have cared-less about the party. I crawled around on my hands and knees until 10 minutes before the party. I had all my kids crawling. Finally, Mackay told me to say a prayer. DUH!!
We did and looked some more. I moved my purse as the guest were arriving for the party that at this time I DIDN'T want to throw. There in my purse was my sparkly diamond still in the prong setting.

Give it time and hit your knees. Whether you are crawling and then praying or praying and then crawling - you will find it. If not - Dave will have to get down on his knee again. We all deserve a second proposal ;).

Oh My Goodness! Suck Suck Suckity Suck.
Hope it turns up, my bet is the drain!

Debbie said...

It is sad. I told Grandma and she told me she lost her diamond and was scrubbing the floor instead of mopping it which she usually did and she found it. Maybe you WILL find it.

Camilla said...

AHHH Becky, that's horrible. If it makes you feel any better, I would totally go through the diapers if it was me--some things are just worth the nastiness.

Edie said...

Hey I gave the token look :) Sorry we couldn't be more help.

I think it is gone. Sorry!

Omgirl said...

I'm so sorry! That is terrible. And diamonds are so hard to see--they're clear!

I lost a sapphire out of an antique ring my grandmother left for me when she died. I had loved it since I was a little girl. I know I can get it replaced, but it wont' be the same, like you said.

Michele said...

Oh my gosh, I am soooo sorry. I remember how excited you were when you got it. I hope you still find it. :o(
