OP here! The ring had always been so tight that I couldn't get it off, but I guess loosing baby weight combined with the cold weather, my finger shrunk enough. I agree with commenters... I found it extremely odd that I didn't notice... Maybe a case of missing limb syndrome but with a ring? Anyhow, after spending a morning raking the leaves in freezing rain, I FOUND IT! An FML win! (Oh, and #55 sleet does freeze leaves when you live in Texas and the ground is warm enough to melt the sleet but the wind cold enough to re-freeze it. But we can compromise and say we are both right because it has been alternating between freezing rain and sleet for a little while now). WIN!

#16 - not really. I can see where you're coming from, but it's far easier to warm up than cool down. When it's *really* hot, there's no escaping it, even with A/C (which only helps a fair bit, but doesn't completely solve it). Everything is hot - the ground, the air, the walls, your clothes, and even the pipes that carry the cold water. Throw in the high humidity - it's even harder to cool down; and keeps you sticky - it makes it even worse.
I have never had a problem with mine slipping off during any activity: yard work, dishes, hand washing, changing the serpentine belt on our car, etc.. Maybe all these people need to get their rings properly sized. The only time I remove it is to dye my hair or when preparing a meal with raw meat so bacteria doesn't stay in all the nooks and crannies.
