I’ve had an annoying 24 hours. I’m now going to complain about some first world problems. You have been warned.
I’m addicted to my FitBit Versa. I wear it every day. I am on month 14 of getting 10,000 steps every day. My FitBit died yesterday. I have spent the last 24 hours looking at my wrist to check the time, only to realize my FitBit is gone. I know what I need to do to get my steps in, so I know I haven’t broken my streak. But the FirBit app doesn’t know that, so when I look at the last 12 months it is going to be an annoying blip. I also find it harder to stay motivated on the track when I can’t see how far I’ve gone. I bought a new Versa today, and I feel so relieved to have my FitBit back.
We were on the run all day. Swim Lessons in the morning. An emergency trip to Costco for my FitBit. Zoo Tots in the afternoon. I didn’t bother with a handbag and put my credit card and license in my pocket. They vacated my pocket at some point at the zoo. I’m now without a license or credit card. I would like to on-line shop my frustrations away, but I’m not going to buy anything if I don’t get Costco cash back.
So other than that it has been a fine 24 hours. I finished my Linnea Hat. I think I would like a mohair cardigan, but this hat isn’t for me. It is too sparkly. Luckily Audrey is 5, so she thinks the hat is awesome.
If you are thinking about trying out a hat to see if you would like mohair, I do not recommend this pattern. The pattern calls for a beaded rib brim, which is a four stitch repeat. The pattern also has you cast on 90 stitches. That doesn’t make sense (88 or 92 stitches would make sense). I started with the beaded rib but gave up and switched to a 1×1 rib after about 8 rounds because you can’t really see the detail in mohair and it was annoying to knit. The brim is started with a provisional cast on and folded under to make a thick brim, so the different rib is on the inside of the hat.
At Zoo Tots today the animal they brought in for the kids to have a close encounter with was a fox. Usually they get to pet the animals, but not today. I would have loved to have pet that fluffy fox.
I really have a great life. My only complaints are having a fitness tracker die and losing some things that I can replace. Also it is really cool to be that close to a fox.
