Painwise I have hurt most of the day. My back can’t take sitting or standing very well. Only recourse is to lay down, which will lead to excessive napping, which will mean I won’t sleep at night, which means I will disturb Teresa. oh, this goes on and on. Basically, any way I work this I end up hurting. I’m hoping that the pain doc’s office will call soon so I can get the pain taken care of.
My mood took a turn down today. I guess I look forward to the D&D games more than I realized and it thru my bipolar brain into a not so slight downswing. Everything is going so well in my life, got nothing else to complain about. Has to be cuz of the stupid D&D games being cancelled. Trying to look forward to next week, but its blah this week.
We did get a second monitor hooked up to my system today. That was a bright spot in an otherwise gloomy day. Now I can be doing stuff on one screen while reading Facebook on the other. Cool Cool, so very cool.
My new computer set up is kind of nice. Although my desk is entirely too short (hey, it was free). Gotta replace the cardboard box table with another table from the Family Dollar store. But beyond those 2 little things, its very comfy and very practical. Maybe for Christmas or my Birthday I will get a big boy desk (craigslist) and then I wouldn’t need so many small tables.
I think I may be crazy, but I am thinking seriously about setting up 1 more online D&D game. This time on Sunday afternoons, so that my west coast friends that play have the option of joining the game. Gonna probably switch to DISCORD for voice chat software. Then I won’t be tying up my friend mumble server and using his bandwidth. DISCORD is free and somehow runs locally on everyone’s computer. Really beyond my feeble brain capacity to figure out how it works. Anyhow, if we use DISCORD we won’t be able to record the sessions. So, I gotta think about this. And furthermore, gotta think about if I really can handle a 3rd session a week. Heh, it’s not like I have anything else to do with my time, might as well play D&D.
Our dogs are definitely getting used to me not being in bed all the time. They still get confused when Teresa tells them to “Go see Daddy” for a treat. They start to run to the bed, then turn around slowly, and then run back to me.
I still miss my Mom and Brother, but not as much as I have recently. It’s right after seeing them when it’s bad, now its just a generalized miss. I tell ya though, if Jet Blue flew in to/out of Des Moines, I would have flown to see them again on Jet Blue’s special they are having. But nope, no Jet Blue around here. So, it’ll be November when I see them again.
We LOVE the new stove. It rocks. We have barely touched what it’s capable of doing, but it’s wonderful. Had to cut down cooking times of everything we cooked in our old stove. 3 to 5 minutes usually. The difference from the old stove which wasn’t close to correct temp or the new stove which holds the correct temp like a champion. Whirlpool made a great product there.
Oh hell, I almost forgot. I got a big adult type desk in storage. Don’t really know how to get it here or how to put it together. But hey, I own a big desk that would hold all this stuff and then some. It’s totally the wrong color for this room, but hey, it’s already paid for. I guess it might be time to bug Drew to come do me a solid. Below is the desk I have in storage. Would be nice to put it back in use somewhere… why not here?
