Into Thin Air…

I spent about half the day today looking for two of my diamond rings that seem to have disappeared into thin air.  I spent the second half of the day frustrated about the loss and trying to imagine where my rings could have possibly gone.  I wondered were they lost or were they stolen?  When I last saw them they were in a place where they should have remained.

I have racked my brain and looked in, under, and behind every place I could imagine that my rings could possibly be.  I am not a happy camper.  Indeed, I am patently unhappy.  I dislike losing things and I particularly dislike losing expensive things.  And yet even as I say I have “lost” them, I have no recollection of how that could have happened.

I wondered in my wild theorizing of what could have possibly happened to my rings.  Had I had by some fluke included them in a collection of costume jewelry I had donated to Dakota Boy’s Ranch?  I cannot imagine making such a mistake, but as the day went on even the craziest of theories was entertained.

Based on the extensiveness of my search, I am fairly sure I will never see those rings again and that pains me.  Sure, I know that relative to other things the loss of a couple of rings is minor and I am sure I will get over it sooner or later…but not tonight.  Tonight I remain incredibly frustrated.

    Speaking as one who is frequently ‘gaslighted’ by my young folks, have you checked with the Santa-nappers? That caper may have inspired them to bigger and better things. Or…. 🙂 maybe I’m just sharing my paranoia.
