Cro has a job interview today. I hope he gets this one ... I think we deserve a break of good fortune for a change!
I came home yesterday to find him in a distraught mood because he couldn't find his wedding ring. He was so distressed about it that there was nothing I could do or say to make him feel better. He is a complicated man. It didn't bother me nearly as much as it bothered him. Maybe it stems to his rotten childhood and how he's lost so many things in his life that mean something to him. I tried consoling him and reminding him that the ring is just a symbol, a thing, and not the marriage itself. He knows that but he was still making himself sick worrying about it. I asked why it was having such a hard effect on him. All he could say to explain were the words "Because I lost it."
The wedding rings mean a great deal to me too but the depth of his feelings about losing it was more than I could understand. I gave him lots of reassurances that I wasn't at all angry at him for losing it, but like I said, he's harboring something deep that I can only guess has to do with how many important things (beyond material objects) he has lost throughout his life.
The ring has to be in the house somewhere. The cat probably saw it on Cro's desk or night table and batted it onto the floor, continuing to play with it until he suffered a case of kitty-boredom or until he batted it into a spot that he could no longer reach. Cat's do things like that. Maybe the ring was a little token for the kitty wishing well so that Cro gets the job. :)
