A moment of seriousness. A very good friend of my mom’s passed away in August and her husband didn’t think to tell my mom until my mom sent her friend a card saying what’s up. That is sad. My mom and her friend had been friends for 50 years or so, you’d think someone would call her. Rest in peace, Jackie, may you have been right and you are in heaven.
My friend’s wife passed away a week or so ago. I hadn’t actually spoken to my friend in a long while, but this one hit me kinda hard. Jason basically saved me a couple times while I lived in Ridgecrest, and it sucks that I haven’t been a good friend to him now that we have reconnected via Facebook. Jason is like 8 years older than me, his wife was 20ish years younger than Jason. Died resting on his shoulder in her sleep. I don’t know many details (or any details as the case is) but I know that has to be really hard to wake up to your loved one on your shoulder cold. Jason, I don’t know if you read this blog ever, but you can find my number in my profile and call me, I am here for you man. I hope Mary is in a better place too.
Now on to the regular scheduled show….
I am on Day 5 of being sick. I feel ok as long as I don’t cough. Unfortunately, I am coughing quite a bit, especially in the morning (read that as starting at 4am) and the late evening. During the day, if I am up and moving around I am mostly ok. I do not think I am gonna be well by Saturday 😦 Not going to be able to go to Light the Night or definitely not be able to help out. I am bummed about that.
Lou Malnatti’s Pizza is on the menu for dinner tonight again. We order them frozen from http://www.tasteofchicago.com . Good stuff. Better than any pizza we can get fresh here. Well, to be fair, there is a couple pizza places a half hour or so away that are pretty good. But I still think I like Lou Malnatti’s pizzas better.
Teresa is feeling a whole lot better, but she got antibiotics to move her along. Kinda sucks for me to see her feeling so good while I am still so sick. And I got 5 more days to go. But I am happy for her, she was miserable for enough days, she needs to be healthy so she can go to work, so she can take off the days between Thanksgivingfest and Thanksgiving proper. If they will even give her those days off, that is uncertain at this time too.
I may get booed by some of my friends for this. But it looks like the Cubs are gonna be out of the playoffs. Kinda feel bad for their fans, but from what I understand the Dodgers are just rockin right now and the Cubs aren’t. Hey, it happens. Now, I would love for the Cubs to go win the next 3 games, but lets be realistic.
Tomorrow’s D&D game might have to be put off a week. I have a definite cough at the end of every sentence I speak. I don’t want to cough into my microphone and blow everybody’s ears. Besides, I am not much on sitting up either right now, get light headed.
Cori said that the music I have been posting with these blog posts “Sucks”. I happen to like punk. But today I will go out and find something more appealing to the masses
