I didn't feel well yesterday. Not just "didn't feel well", but my head hurt so bad, I was nauseous, but if I had actually gotten sick, I think my head would have exploded. I think I need new glasses and far less stress. So I did the adult thing, went home sick and climbed into bed. Of course I got home right about the time the neighborhood kids were strolling the streets, and they seem to love standing in front of our house and chatting--I don't know what is so flipping interesting about our house, but it ticks off the pittybulls, and the last sound I need when my head is about to burst is a barking pitbull terrier. But I fought the urge to lean out the front door and tell them to move along, because I am ONLY 32, way too young to be that cranky lady at the end of the street. After all, I'm hip, I have a sunroof and XM, there's a 10 second car in the front drive, and we have pittybulls and a marsh. I can not be the witch of the neighborhood. So I told Caesar Beazer to shut up (he didn't listen, he just wiggled with delight), and turned on Bravo. Which helped my headache. Wierd, hunh? Or was it the grilled cheese?
So I pulled out my Lizzie Kate Christmas Flip-it bellpull. I am doing a SAL with some friends.
I have NO FLIPPING CLUE how to do this.
I read the directions. I swear. It mentioned starting at the top of the fabric and working down. I can't do that. I've tried. It never works out right. I count down 2 inches and over 2 inches and it still seems off center. So I found center and counted. That just TERRIFIED me, for some reason. I charted out the boxes while watching Real Housewives of Orange County, and it's just not working. By the time SO came home, I was in my jammies in a lump on the bed.
I don't think it helped that the chart is so small. Squinting doesn't help my frustration. Or that my tape measure was on the floor of the family room, and I knew if I walked by the door, and the dog started barking, I would lean out the door, with my wild sick person hair and my doggie jammies and yell at some neighborhood kid and I am trying to be a better person for Lent.
I am going to try over again, now that I am feeling better. But this was maybe not the right day to start. I worked on My Kitty, and she made me feel better. She's so pretty. I will try to get pix of her tonight if I get home on time. I work at the theatre tonight, then off at normal time tomorrow, then work til 10 on Friday. It will be a sleeping in weekend.
