If you already torn apart your houe...then just call a friend with a crawling baby, maybe he can help you. My 11 months old baby finds the smallest things in the floor. I'm so sorry and hope you find it soon!
Keep us updated!

I too lost my wedding ring once, I lost it in the house somewhere. I was just sick, I told the kids I would pay $20 to whoever found it. Well we tore the house apart and my youngest son found it in his sock drawer. It had slipped off while I was putting away laundry. Best $20 I ever spent, and of course my son was pretty tickled. Good luck, I hope you find it.

Hope you find your ring! I guess it wasn't in any of the cakes you made, huh? Years ago the diamond in my MIL's ring fell out in the parking lot that was covered with snow. She noticed it was missing and being Catholic she prayed to St. Anthony, she looked down and saw the diamond in the snow.

You guys out there sure can lose jewellery icon_rolleyes.gif , your stories are just amazing.

I have been meaning to post about my hypnosis experience for a few days but have been too busy caking until now.

Because I had such a strong nagging feeling that I registered the ring falling, but not realising what it was at the time, and then not being able to remember, I thought maybe hypnosis would help me unlock the memory. I have never tried it before and I do not like those hypnosis TV shows where the audience is made to do silly things. So needless to say I was pretty nervous about it all and also kind of sceptical. I explained my fears to the therapist who assured me I would not let myself do things that I would not agree to do. Then he explained the several stages of hypnosis, interestingly the state you are in when engrossed in a good book or TV show is a state of hypnosis, or even more worryingly when you drive a car on "autopilot".

After that we progressed through several stages of relaxation, stopping to do test to see where I was in terms of hypnosis. I remember holding out my arm not being able to bend it which was kind of weird. Then the therapist asked me to try to put myself back to the time before I realised the ring was gone. Aaaaaaand ........ drumrolll..... a big fat NOTHING! All I could "see" was myself standing in the living room looking annoyed?!? I have no idea what that means. All my hopes of a Eureka moment have been squashed and I still do not have my ring.

After the session I was not sure if I really had been hypnotised, it did not really feel any different than being really really relaxed. But I was shocked to find that I had been "under" for 45 minutes, it honestly felt like 5. And for the next two hours I was really out of it, felt like I had just woken up from a really deep sleep.

Guess it is time to pull out my insurance policy papers and fill out that claim form. Belive me, I have done all I can. Praying, relaxing, searching, lifting things (and cleaning behind things that I have lifted icon_redface.gif ), I got the metal detector, I even had a plumber look in the drain in the bathroom just in case. Let's face it, the thing is gone!

In the end of the day, all the stories you have posted have made me smile and laugh, and made me realise it is just a thing. I still have my wonderful husband and my great kids. That is really all that matters.

I have to say I have been reading this post to see if you fouhnd your ring. I am going to be honest and tell you my story. My hubby & I got into a really big fight and he said some very hurtful things to me. So hurtful I took my rings off and flung them in my house. I kinda watched to as where both went. I went looking for them afterwards and no luck in finding them. I busted out my shop vac and vac'd like crazy thinking that if one slipped into a crack by the wall it would be strong enough to pull it out. Well I vac'd and I heard something go up and thought it was my ring. I haven't looked in the vac yet! But went about looking for my other ring and finally got tired of looking for it and gave up. Well the other day I happen to bend over at the bottom of the stairs and I look up just a little and low and behold there is my wedding band. So I say stop looking for it a for awhile and you might be lucky and have something happen like I did. I wish you all the luck in the world finding it.

Oh, so sorry. I certainly hope you are able to find your ring. I've been through the same sort of thing with a good earing, I knew I dropped it. Even heard it hit the floor, it took taking the bed completely apart and taking it OFF the floor, to find the earring. I got the bedroom cleaned in the process but would have preferred to not have had the trauma. Everyone is talking to the "God of Rings" for you.

I am not clairvoyant, but I am almost senile. Which makes me an expert at locating lost items. icon_rolleyes.gif
I spend half my day retracing steps to find something that I laid down when the phone rang, or the doorbell rang, or my DH asked for something, or the oven timer goes off, or the smoke alarm goes off icon_surprised.gif ---Oh--well, uh-- that may be an entirely different discussion.
For a detailed tutorial on retracing steps, just email me...
Er--uh--Wait a minute...Never mind... icon_redface.gif
I have to find it first. icon_confused.gif

Now where did I last have that in my hand? detective.gif

Years ago my mom lost her rings while cooking. Again, she searched everywhere and finally gave up. A few months later, she opened up the same cookbook she had used that day, and there they were. So if you used a cookbook.. give it a look!

Did it make it to the washer? If it did could it be stuck under the agitator? Just a thought.
post #57 of 66
well I hope you find it. Maybe now that you seem to be moving on it will appear. I lost the band to my wedding set, or my 2 year old did about 6 years ago. Never did find it.

Didn't read every post, but some places to look, if you haven't already:
In any canisters that you keep things like flour, sugar, etc. , and wherever you keep your decorating tools.
If you have one of those things in your sink that holds a sponge (attaches to sink with suction cups)
In your silverware drawer, or wherever you store your spatulas, wooden spoons, etc. (I have a metal crock that I keep mine in)
Under the washer or dryer
On the floor anywhere there might be little gaps (i.e. between the stove and lower cabinets, or between refrigerator and wall or lower cabinets)
Sometimes if you turn of the lights so it is dark and shine a flashlight slowly over your carpeting you might find what you're looking for because it will glint in the flashlight beam.

Good luck - I hope you find it. I know how awful it feels to lose something so special to you.

Note to cakesbycathy and everyone --

I had misplaced my card case last week, which of course, has all my IDs and credit cards in it. I knew it was in the house somewhere, but I turned every pocket, searched every purse, and had no success.

This thread came back to me yesterday, and I said the prayer that cakesbycathy posted three times in the past two days. Lo and behold, everything was in an obscured pouch in the purse I am currently using.

Thanks cakesbycathy for the prayer, and thanks to Saint Anthony for helping me find my card case!

I am sneaking on CC for a moment. I am away on vacation but has serious CC withdrawal so using my hubby's work computer while he is out for a minute.


Silvercat, your story made me so sad, I hope you and your husband made up! Glad that you found your rings though!

Couturiere, you made me laugh. You are not the only senile one. Just this evening my husband opened a cupboard in the kitchen and asked me what the milk was doing in there??? Well, it was close to the fridge, what more do you want?

Hopefully by being away from home for a couple of weeks I will be able to see my house with fresh eyes and hopefully find my ring. I have some more ideas where to look now, under the agitator, in the flour canister, hmmmm. If not, then at least I am a bit more relaxed.
