Had one of those days where so much stupid stuff went wrong. Had a doctor's appointment which ended up having to be rescheduled because the scheduling person screwed up (and bonus, I thought it was wrong at the time but didn't say anything because I thought the scheduling person knew what they were doing, so it's partly my fault), forgot the errand I meant to do on that side of town, the crispy rolls I was making for lunch rolled off the baking tray and fell on the bottom of the oven, etc etc.

Also we've been re-doing our guest room (the room I painted dark blue) and in the course of replacing the double bed with a day bed with a trundle I lost a mattress pad. Like I have no idea where it went. It's not in the closet, it's not in the Good Will pile. One minute it was draped over a chair, the next it had apparated off to have its own adventures. Maybe it will come back some day, like a sock lost in the dryer. But the room is almost done, and means with the day bed and trundle, plus our two blow-up mattresses, the house can sleep 4-5 people comfortably. (It can sleep a lot more uncomfortably.) Since climate change is just going to get worse, and our town is a big evacuation center for hurricanes, it makes me feel a little better to be prepared when/if our friends need a place to stay.

Also, after a very mild winter, the temperature has dropped to the high 20s and my arthritis (rheumatoid and osteo) really does not like cold weather.

Mercury goes retrograde today. I had to look it up, because several other people have been posting similar things-going-wrong stories. I generally take astrology with a large grain of salt, but Mercury retrograde always seems to be true.

Mondays are not for the weak. At least your mattress pad is off having fun?

Oooof I hope today is going better. But thank you for reminding me, I also live in a popular place for hurricane evacuations and it wouldn't be the worst thing for me to get the craft room also set up with a bed, possibly a bed-and-trundle.

So much sympathy. I learned yesterday that I cannot walk 5 blocks in -10 windchill anymore without my arthritis making me PAY for it. (I didn't want to take the L one stop. Bad call. My hip told me so in no uncertain terms.)

Your mattress pad sends greetings from Bali.
