The words eternal optimism don’t even begin to cover the insanely sunshiny outlook that I possess.
Case in point, I had a migraine that lasted for three days this past week. As if throbbing head pain and nausea weren’t enough, I also injured my back somehow or other. Coincidentally, all this occurred during the week that I was taking care of my sister’s dogs for her while she was on vacation, which basically meant that, no matter how bad I felt, I had to go over to her house and feed her dogs every day. I was very concerned about her doggies, because they are outside dogs and it’s been ridiculously hot here. But, damn, if you’ve ever had a migraine, you know that the last thing you want to do when you have one is be outside in extreme heat and brain shatteringly bright sunshine. By the way, I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to either her dogs or something in her yard. My eyes itched horribly every single time I went over there.
Here’s the part you won’t believe. After a miserable week like that, would you think I could bring myself to buy a lottery ticket? Well, buy one I did.
Does it surprise anybody that I did not win several hundred million dollars?
Oh, and remember that extreme heat I mentioned? Guess who’s air conditioner is leaking freon and is going to need to be replaced? If you guessed mine, you wouldn’t be wrong.
But, I ordered lots of gorgeous yarn from Wool Girl, and I’m feeling like life is pretty good right now. If I don’t get hit by a bus before I get the chance to touch it, I’ll enjoy really enjoy knitting it up.
