I know how you feel.

I had my wedding band cut off today. It’s been getting tighter and tighter, and now it had to go before it did permanent damage to my finger.

I wanted to cry. Seriously. I’ve not had it off for more than 15 mins since we got married. I’m having it fitted for a chain, so I can wear it around my neck.

And I can’t put on a new band for at least a month.

Man, I feel weird without it on.

It’s being an interesting week.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    That happened to my mom too, after 30+ years of marriage. She was going to have the band remade with pieces of the original one but the process of getting it cut off really has turned her off of wearing rings for more than a few hours at a time. But I really like your idea of wearing it on a chain, that’s really neat.

    I once lost the ring my future-wife gave me. It slipped off while I was walking along a muddy path. I went back everyday and sifted through the mud looking for it.
    I found it on the Fifth day.
    But it did feel very odd not having it on those four days. I kept running my thumb over the spot where it was supposed to be. I was beyond ecstatic when I found it.
    So I know how you feel.
