Not that weekdays versus weekends are important when you are not working, but I am glad this week is almost over.
Both Princess and I got stung by a yellowjacket. Long story short I was trying to get her back in the house while she wanted to go after a stray chihuahua that runs around here, the bee stung her first then I managed to get us inside but I wasn’t fast enough to keep the bee out. He got me too, then thankfully flew onto the window and I was able to exterminate him – with my spatula, the closest most suitable weapon I saw in the heat of the moment – so he couldn’t continue his attack. We are both fine, and Rascal thankfully somehow escaped the whole ordeal unscatched.
My wrists are rather unhappy, especially my right wrist. Yes, again/still/whatever. It gets a bit better for a while but never fully better, then hurts badly again. I was talking to my aunt the other night and she mentioned the possibility of arthritis. When I first had wrist problems as a teenager the doctor diagnosed it as tendonitis, but that isn’t typically chronic as it has been for me. My mom (RN) doesn’t think the symptoms sound like CTS. My aunt was the first one to mention the possibility of arthritis. Doesn’t matter, I can’t afford to get to a doctor to try to find out for sure one way or another, anyway. I’m just trying to get through one day at a time the best I can, right now.
I wasn’t able to get much sleep last night. Neighbors had their music blaring for several hours and it kept me both annoyed and awake for a good deal of the night. Then they fired it up again early this morning and woke me up well before I had gotten nearly enough sleep to not be a grumpy pants today.
I rediscovered one of my UFO’s (that is Un-Finished Object, for those not familiar with knit/crochet slang) and though it was started only a year ago I could not for the life of me remember what pattern I had been using. As I contemplated frogging it (ripping out the stitches to start over) I finally remembered there was no pattern – it was just something I was making on my own. Of course this is still little help as I can’t remember what the heck I was planning to do with the darned thing. I know I had written it down but I have been through every notebook I have, and haven’t found anything that matches what has already been done on the item. I am not about to frog it, so this means I get to try to figure out how in the world I want to finish it up. This isn’t necessarily going to be easy, but at least it is easier than if I had been using a pattern and had to try to figure out what pattern it was.
I have more job applications to submit. So I am off.
Until next time. xoxo
