Well, my top is not going to be finished

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I got my yarn yesterday and started to knit. i knew it was different that the other balls I just finished using

this new one was thinner, shed esily leaving cotton piles on the finished section and it was also see through now

called their corporte office and wss not impressed with their concern. they did not even want the yarn sent back to them for evalation to compare with the original product they offered to replace one ball for me and the other five I would have to return at my own expense for a credit.

then I was asked halfwy through the conversation if i wanted more assistance as helping me the rep could be answering more calls. really.. you have not helped me and you want to cut me off

great

so I have envelopes address to remove the crappy piece of yarn and how it knit up against the original yarn . and wrote my complaint out and adresing it to the president of the compny so he knows how his staff is treating customers. and also what poor quality control they have

    Can you use a yarn comparable to the original in a different color for a color block look? That seems to be one of the current trends.

It is really disappointing when yarns differ in looks and quality in what is claimed to be the same product.

Lst night I left the heat on downstair just to keep the pipes warm and climbed into my bed which the room actually was fairly cold but I just did not want to put both units on while I was under the down comforter.

had a great appt with my doctor this morning and the special cardiac best he did on me does show a few issues, but they are so slight that with weight loss, meds I can beat this. He feels sorry for our boys as the test was a combo or genetic factors. My hushand is 4/4 and I m 3/4 which is not a great thing. So suggestion is that we get both boys tested when we can get them in town again to see where their numbers are and put them on preventative measures

my thryoid once again is horrible so nother medicine change now and then another in 30 days and labs the second week in Dec to see if I am overdoising or underdosing with this change.

He also checked my cortisol levels and then have gone from normal in aug to 14.7 which is starting to climb. So meds are given for that since I have been under a bit of strange moments in te last month.

    The ups and downs of doctor visits... emoticon Stick with your healthy lifestyle journey and hopefully some of the issues may correct themselves as much as possible and reduce the possibility that any medication(s) you're taking aren't fighting each other and indeed helping. emoticon

    Hope they figure out your thyroid soon. I take meds for mine and it seems to be working ok.

I got all nice and warm in cozy in my bed last night and actually got some sleep until the alarm went off. forgot to turn off the 4 am alarm. took a while to go back to sleep but I eventualy did.

got up and waited for my real estate agent to call but instead I got calls from 10 other agents, At one point I stopped taking them. then a miracle happened. received an email with the paprework from my agent and her also getting me to call me between 1 and 2.

so we are back under contrct

tried to get some knitting done but had the shape of the new shawl. does not look right.

i did have a shock. my brother called me this afternoon. he usually calls once a year and this was that time. he asked how old I was and when I said 60 he asked how old was told him in 3 weeks he would be 59

so now going to try and get some knitting done . tonight it is supposed to be 15 or lower here and I plan to stay warm in my bed

I really go hate Mondays

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

especially when I have to get up at 4 am and then more so when it is raining

bed last night at 1130, then waking up throughout the night to make sure I did not sleep through the alarm. got hubby up and food packed for a few days at our son's house

back to bed with a horrible headache .. sleep around 7 am and then the phone rang at 830. Doctors office reminding me of appt on Wed

figured I just better get up. I then felt like I needed caffeine quick.

got downstairs and it was pouring rain now and now way was I taking the dog out yet. got coffee, addressed some mail, dog out, and then sat down to enjoy my coffee.

phone rings and I see it is local number. it is a real estate company. once again, my contract expired on the house and the real estate agent dropped the ball and did not contact me. I honestly thought it expired on the 30th. so now call to her. just do not feel like finding another agent to tell me that I need to spend 10K to do things
in my house like re staging a third time as they did not like the work of the original two people.

left her a message. got two more calls from agents and finally had a moment where I needed grease. yes I got an blooming onion as it was free today. it was disgusting

made my vegan potato soup did a lot of knitting and finally the hot bath before bed

BTW still have not heard from my agent

    Sorry to hear about the hour issues....As for Monday, here's my take. Be kind with Monday, it's not going away...it keeps coming back every week. You did the right thing...just keep moving...do what you can, and just keep moving...there's only so many hours in a Monday. emoticon

    Not alone with Mondays, I spent 3 hours at the tire place-so I got a lot of knitting in too. I went on purpose yesterday because it was rainy, windy and cold and I figured most people with their heads screwed on straight would stay home-not so. Had to get the rear end aligned...I just have to stop taking curbs with me and hitting every chuck hole between home and my eldest son.
Sorry about your agent, seems like something is terribly wrong with what's happening between them and you. Better luck next one.

good news is that I am only 10 rows now from finishing and they are easy rows to do

    emoticonI've discovered on my healthy lifestyle journey that I have very few, what most would recognize as, relaxing activities. I've been thinking about picking up knitting or crocheting again. PLEASE Inspire me with a picture. emoticon
