Frieda Failure

The Mariners have lost two in a row. I used a favorite fabric to make a new shirt pattern yesterday and it was a total failure. I finally got the crochet top I've been working on to a point where I could see if it was going to work or not. Turns out, not.

I used to have a friend who would say that she was having a Chemical Day - everything she touched turned to shit. That's kind of how I feel.

BUT... maybe I can salvage the sewing so I can still have a top out of that fabric. The crochet pieces can probably be used in another project.

The Mariners... I get stressed when they win. Losing feels comfortable.

I have a new knitting pattern to do. The designer wanted testers and I said I'd do it. I'm going to try my idea for salvaging the shirt this morning. And the Mariners play again tonight. Onward.

I've lost the lid to my coffee mug. I lost it because using it kept the coffee too hot to drink for too long so maybe I don't need it but still. Annoying.

Zoey did not come screeching at me this morning demanding food. She just politely sauntered in and settled into her living room hammock without even checking her bowl. hmmmm

Nothing special planned for today. Just the regular Nice Day At SDHQ with, hopefully, a few less fails.

She passed her test!

Zoey's vet called while I was out walking around the block. It's chilly out there! Anyway, she does not have diabetes or any thyroid issues. She is not even near borderline for either one! So, since she's clearly not stressed or in pain or even unhappy - as long as I don't make her get into that FUCKING carrier (her words) - I'm just going to keep and eye on her.

I just got a note from the Mariners about stuff happening in June. It's always a BFD when Boston comes to town because Boston fans come out in droves. Some come from Boston but the rest come from around here but they all come out. The crowds are just filthy with Red Sox fans. This year, the middle game of the series falls on Saturday which means more Boston fans than usual. AND... it's the Pride game! So... Rainbow Red Sox. It's going to be quite the spectacle. AND it's one of my Diamond games so I get to see it live and in person. I'm so sorry that jwg and rsc won't be here.

I'm all of a sudden having knee issues when climbing stairs. It's so weird. It started a couple of days ago with my right knee (I think). I climbed a step and it both hurt and felt like it was going to fail entirely. Then my left knee started doing much the same thing. Not at the same time, thankfully. There are 14 steps (steep ones) from the street level garage down to where my car is. And there are 7 steps up to the pool area at the gym. There are 4 flights of not every steep steps from parking to the gym. I can eliminate the latter pretty easily but the others are kinda critical and every day. This is concerning. I need knees.
