I'm here alone this weekend, with a semi-naked finger.
Ryan went on a boys' trip to Dallas, and I'm here alone with the dog. She doesn't talk much, so it kind of sucks.
But back to the semi-nakedness. I normally wear three rings on my left hand ring finger - a diamond wedding band, my engagement ring, and a plain wedding band. Right now, though, I only have my e-ring and my plain band.
A little baby diamond popped out of my wedding ring. I was on the phone with someone, my other line started ringing, I had someone do a random "pop in"... and in my haste to switch lines and have the pop-in have a seat, I smacked my hand against my desk.
I caught my e-ring on the desk. Kind of hard. So I looked down to check my stone, and noticed there was a very empty space in seat #2 of my 7 diamond wedding ring.
So I did what any rational woman would do - I hung up on the person I was talking to (listening to would more of the truth), asked the random pop-in to head back to the waiting area, and I got down on my hands and knees.
After 30 seconds of pure panic, I saw a glint of sparkle on my desk, right beneath my phone. My little baby diamond!!!!
I had a little box in my desk, so I taped the diamond inside, put in the ring, and taped the whole thing shut. I'm at Job #2 all weekend (for inquiring minds - LOFT offers a 50% discount on everything for employees), so my ring is going to have to hang out till I can go to the jeweler on Monday.
And looking at my 2-ring hand right now... I am so happy I decided to go with the diamond band, too. The diamond band was purchased a 11 months before our wedding - we were eager to go shopping - and I loved it. It had 7 little bar set diamonds, which was perfect because we got married on the 7th of November. But around March, I decided that I might also want a plain band, just in case I was making play-doh with a kid at some point. So we went to look at bands again, and I contemplated exchanging my diamond one for a plain one. In the end I kept both, and I love the look of the 3 rings all together.
Yep. I feel kind of naked without my diamonds.
