30 year High School Reunion, really?

Well, I had my 8th bone marrow biopsy yesterday.  Got a lot of holes in my hip bone now,  this was just one more.  Weird thing, my platelets were 46.  Which is a considerably improvement from 30 where they had been.  Now the question is: Did they make a mistake? or am all the sudden my platelets are improving?  I don’t know which it is.  I’d like to think that the hospital lab didn’t make a mistake.  It would be way cool to be heading in the right direction again, we still wouldn’t have an answer as to why my platelets crashed, but maybe just maybe my platelets are getting better. Guess we will find out on Thursday when I see my cancer doc,

Beyond that games and stuff we bought on Black Friday, I ordered Teresa a gift which arrived yesterday.  I wasn’t expecting it to come in a plain box, I figured it would come just as it was.  I was worried she would see it and know what it was, but being in a plain box, she saw it and had no idea.  Cool.  I hope she likes it.  If she doesn’t want it, I will keep if for myself.

Next September my High School Class is having a 30 year reunion for 1987 1988 1989, or so it seems as of now.  It was just 88 and 89 yesterday, but today its 87 and 88.  I’m sure the organizers will get their act together and announce it correctly soon.  Well, however it comes down, I think I will be going to the Portage High School Class of 1988 High School Class Reunion.  This will be the first high school reunion that I will make it to.  I wasn’t invited to any earlier ones except the 25th, we were broke then, I couldn’t make it.  Now, the 30th being a joint reunion means I potentially get to go and see many more friends than if it was just our class, so that is kinda cool.

The only other reunion I attended was Teresa’s 10 year reunion and that was BORING.  I didn’t know many of the people and she said she didn’t associate with many more of them. So we sat at the table, ate, and talked with the friend who had made Teresa and therefore me go.

Now I wasn’t a social butterfly in High School.  And my class was huge (not by the standards of classes graduating now from Portage High School).  There are a lot of people who will be there that I do not know and many more than I will not remember, especially with them making it for 3 classes.   Oh well, I will go and visit my friends and maybe reconnect with some others.  It should be good.

Oh yeah, the have set a date of September 22, 2018 for the reunion.  That’s as good of date as any I guess.

My mood has improved greatly with the weather turning winter cold.  I’m actually in a pretty decent mood.  Seasonal Affective Disorder is weird.  The weirdest thing triggers it and the weirder things trigger it to stop.   I am glad that I don’t have the depths of winter SAD, that would suck.  Where is goes from January to March.  Cold and depressed.  **shiver**.

Being in a better mood makes me want to go out, but I don’t want to be cold.  Still need to find my hat, gloves and scarf.  Iowa winters can be brutal cold.  I hope my big winter coat still fits, I recall it getting hard to zip up last year, and I have put on weight since then.  DOH.  Well, this week I will search everything out and try my big coat on.

I have complained about no big stars coming to Des Moines.  Well, I am wrong again, Katy Perry (who you can argue isn’t as big of a star and she used to be) did a show here just a few days ago.  I hear it was a sell out.  Good for her.  Good for Des Moines.  With the rate that the towns around Des Moines are growing, I figure more big tours will be stopping here.  That’ll be good.

I don’t miss working and not getting paid.  lol.  But I do miss getting to go to Chamber of Commerce events.  I miss my “chamber friends”, people who I saw and hug out with at chamber events but not friends to go to lunch with or anything.  And now, with me accepting my disabled status, there is nothing to gain out of going to lunch with me anyway.


Because I heard it on Music Choice and its stuck in my head.
