Yarn Rascal lives. I am hoping the yarn has passed through his little system. He stole one of the aluminium crochet hooks last night when I wasn’t feeling well, so today I am concerned with aluminium poisoning, although he seems to be fine.

Yesterday was the MRI. Seriously, King Tut had more room swaddled in his mummy linens than any human has in an MRI machine. I ended up getting sick from the contrast solution, a result I did not experience with last year’s MRI. I won’t know the test results until I see the doctor in two weeks. Needless to say, my not feeling well last night led to Yarn Rascal’s opportunity to seize the crochet hook. I’ve said it before and it is true, he knows no bounds. I really need to see if there are summer obedience courses I can take him to.

The fire sale battery is still in the car. Every time I turn on the car I flinch, expecting it to explode. While I’m driving I sniff the air searching for a whiff of smoke or any strange smell that might indicate impending fire or explosion. It is not a comfortable way to drive. My anxiety and blood pressure increases at the thought of getting into the car I once loved and felt safe in.
