Mom has been super while being here, she took us out to Famous Dave’s tonight. Very nice of her. She is only here for 2 1/2 more days. Not nearly long enough of a visit but longer would drive her nuts, so I understand. Tomorrow we are going shopping at Kohl’s and Best Buy for shoes and a mouse, respectively. She has coupons for Kohl’s that expire on the 21st so that is a must. Best Buy was my suggestion for a mouse over Wal-Mart. Just seemed to make more sense as Best Buy should have a bigger selection.
Went to get my x-ray today at the Adel Mercy Clinic, where my new PA works and where they told me I could get it done. I got there on time only to find out that their x-ray person was off today… DOH. So, we ended up driving to Mercy West and getting the x-rays there. No problem other than I told my mom to park in the wrong lot and we had a long walk to the imaging department.
Nothing found on the x-ray or the urine test, so the Cat Scan tomorrow is hopefully going to find something because otherwise I have more mysterious unexplainable pain. I haven’t had a Cat Scan in 30+ years. lol. I don’t even remember what to expect. But onward we go. We know my pain isn’t an infection, no fever and no system to fight an infection. If it was an infection, I would be really sick (like on the live side of dead sick). There is not much else that causes longish term pain in one kidney. So, Cat Scan just has to find something or frustration will ensue.
Teresa dumbed down the explanation of what THE CLOUD is for me. I kind of knew most of it already, but I did not know that it was FREE to set up in and use for 12 months. More start up companies that want a web presence of size should go this route.
Still haven’t won a game in Mutant Football League. But I almost always score. So I getting better. My defense leaves something to be desire. Working on that in Practice mode starting tomorrow.
Oh yeah, I reported the penalty call on every completion error and it was fixed the next day, bravo to the developers. Now I can make completions and first downs and only get called on penalties when the other team bribes the ref or the random number generator decides to get me. I can handle that.
I think I may be a bit burned out on Civ4 now. I start a game and then go “Blah, I don’t want to play this”. So I think it’s going on the shelf with Skyrim for a while I think. Rocket League never got on the list. Age of Wonder III requires signing up for yet another game company list, I am not sure about that right now. Which leaves Mutant Football League as my game of choice. It’s still in Beta for another month, but it’s super fun to play.
Teresa has decided that saving our pennies to get heated tile floors is the next thing. I think I would rather have a new washer/dryer. But hey, it’s primarily her money, she gets first decision, but nothing says I can’t try to weasel my way in and change her mind. We need a new washer and dryer more than we need the heated floor.
Short one tonight, I am tired. You all have a good day tomorrow. I will let you know what the Cat Scan says.
