Well, my mood improved drastically today. Love when my mood cycles out of crap fast, a benefit of being Ultradian Bipolar. Nimodipine, the med I take as a mood stabilizer actually slows down my cycling to a couple days from much less time. No, you didn’t read it wrong, I said I am on Nimodipine, a calcium channel blocker, for mood stabilization. I am like 1 in 3 in the US on it and we 3 really like it. Works as good as lithium for me without the wicked side effects.
As I talked about yesterday. We cleaned the rest of the “back 40″ today. Only took 3 hours because we took some long breaks. If we had fought straight thru it would have only been an hour and halfish. I had forgotten just how big this room is. Its like 20×20, if not more. The biggest bedroom I have ever seen in a house this size. So we are turning the back half into an office/crafting area. Teresa’s computer setup has always been back here, my computer and stuff moved back a week or so ago.
Now we are ready to get movers to move the stuff from my storage unit to here. It’ll be nice having a BIG desk again. 36″x72”. With lots of storage on the desk. Then the printer table has a bunch more storage, plus the bookshelf. Gonna have lots of places to put stuff. Much nice then the hodgepodge of furniture I have available to me now. A kid’s desk, 2 different nightstands and a cardboard box. I have to store most of my D&D books across the room. It will be nice to have them close at hand.
Teresa discovered I am not a packrat or a hoarder. I am just lazy and don’t want to go thru the trouble of throwing stuff away. She made the distinction today as she is a pack rat. I am just one to throw stuff I am not using into a pile. Not really caring if its useful or trash, then I forget that it even exists. In my defense, I do have a mental disorder with a lot of idiosyncrasies, being lazy is just one of them.
I have been toying with changing the idea of my Sunday afternoon D&D game to make it a Saturday afternoon D&D game. Just not sure at this time and that is ok, cuz its gonna be 3 or 4 week before I decide to start looking for players seriously. Passively looking I think I have 1 already and to him it doesn’t matter which day.
Really do wish I could find an in-person game instead of running a 3rd online game, but hey gotta take what I can get. I don’t get to the gaming stores very often (been a couple years, pre-leukemia) since I stepped into one. Gaming stores are the only way I know how to get localish playing games. Mayhem comics runs a onine bbs, but its not very active. I am betting they have contact info in the store for gamers. Just would have to get off my lazy butt and go down there and see, also Jay’s Hobbies and the new place I can’t remember the name of, they both sell gaming stuff, so they might have a list of players too. Once I get my back fixed.
Speaking of getting my back fixed, still haven’t heard from the pain doc’s office about getting me in earlier. August 17th is looking FAR away.
Hmmm, gotta figure out where to put my current setup when the movers bring the office setup in. I am kinda in the way. So is some of Teresa’s stuff for the matter. Have a few days at least to think about disposition of the stuff. Plus we desperately need to vacuum.
I can tell my platelets are still low, this bruise is taking FOREVER to go away.
And finally, for the record: I LOVE MY WIFE.
