I feel bad and its not Teresa’s fault

I do feel crappy today.  However, I don’t think I am gonna get this as bad as Teresa has/had it.  My voice is toast.  I have a pretty wicked sounding cough.  But I am not running a fever.  I am not all congested.  As a matter of fact, I may have something completely different than what Teresa has.  Heh, who knows.  I just figure I will feel crappy for the weekend and be ok by Monday.  That is normally how illnesses go in this house, I feel crappy for a few days, Teresa sits on her death bed for a week.  I guess that is good because right now my immune system is compromised.

editor note:  Teresa did not get me sick.


Way back when, Teresa and I did a big puzzle together, had a lot of fun doing it too.  Teresa had decided she wanted to do an adult lego kit build, but those are really expensive.  I convinced her to buy a couple puzzles.  We ended up getting a 1500 piece Disney Stained Art one, and a 1000 piece Disney characters one.  We have a table in our bedroom which will be perfect to do puzzles on.  I am looking forward to doing these puzzles with my wife.  I love spending that kind of time with her.


I made it to Leukemia chat last night.  Stayed for a little over an hour (it runs for 2).  It was a good chat.  Because it’s so specialized and you have to fill out a big form to get to it, we don’t have trolls.  And even whiners (not that anyone last night was a whiner) at least whine on topic.  I look forward to next week.


I signed up to volunteer to work the survivor’s tent at the Light the Night event this year. I really try to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in any way I can.  I hope that the LLS is getting to more of the people who can use them.  I didn’t know about the LLS until AFTER I was out of treatment.  Heh.  Not when I had questions and doc was tip toeing around the answers.  Anyhow, the LLS is a great organization which really tries.  Anyhow, Light the Night is their big fund raiser for the year.  I am accepting donations for the Light the Night walk.  I don’t have the page to send you to yet.  But I have the app on my phone.  So if you are interested in donating, leave a comment here or msg me on Facebook, and I’ll be glad to help you out.


I have decided NOT to try school again.  Firstly, I don’t want to have the argument with Teresa and Secondly, I have screwed up too many times, I don’t want to do it again.  So, I am not gonna do it.  I think I could do it in a real semester, but I don’t want to go into debt to see if I can or can’t.  So no school for me.


Because I have a little voice and a sore throat tonight, Friday night D&D has been postponed 1 week, possibly 2 weeks if 3 of the players aren’t available next week.  I want to finish this story arc so bad… but fate keeps pushing it off.  Most disappointing.  But we will get this done and move on to the next story arc which is cooler than this one.  And hopefully we will be able to do it straight thru or close to it.


I love Zyrtec.  Fall is normally terrible to my allergies, but I have been pretty much allergy issue free so far.  1 pill a day and no runny nose or itchy eyes.  That’s a good trade in my opinion. If I take it too early it makes me sleepy, so it gets taken with all my other 10pm meds.  I take too many pills at 10pm, but Zyrtec is one I am not willing to give up.


I’m looking forward to Thanksgivingfest.  My friends who go to that I only get to see once a year, which in my opinion is not often enough.  But it’s all we can do.  I live too far away and direct flights are just too damn expensive.  So, once a year is what we get.  And I like to make the most of it.  The only other time they all get together is Superbowl and football is so not my thing.  So, I don’t make any effort to see them then.  If I made a trip to Indy any other time, I would only get to see a few of them.   Sometimes I just wish I lived closer to them.
