of Gaming, Health, Cold, and more.

Last night’s D&D Game was great.  The group really started to work together.  We managed to figure out the main bad guys and what they are up to and we made some pretty impressive monster kills, including 2 wyvern (not at the same time as we are only level 4).  Danny does a excellent job as DM, his experience DMing really shows.  He kept the game flowing and combat actually went smoothly.  Everyone was on point with their characters.  It was a totally enjoyable 2 1/2 hours.

My game starts on Tuesday, I have posted so much information for my players on the Facebook group.  People (including me) are excited.  I hope I can match the level of excitement with game play.  The first quest is a little weird, so I am hoping it works, cuz if it doesn’t it’s gonna suck.  But hey, this is only my 3rd campaign in 5e and only like my 10th session in 5e total.  I just want my players to have fun.

The headache I mentioned on the 26th as 6 days old, is now 10 days old.  And its getting worse, Tylenol is not working for very long.  I am 1/2 tempted to go to Urgent Care tomorrow.  I checked they are going to be open from 9am to 4pm tomorrow.  It just sucks that med head hurts so much.  I’m sure it’s just stress, but I don’t know how to get rid of this stress.  This headache came on right after getting back from Mayo, so it is the stress knowing that there in nothing that can be done about my other problem which will not be mentioned.  But as it is, I need something stronger than Tylenol.

I miss my mom.  It was wonderful spending a week with her, but now she is back in the Region and I am stuck here in Iowa.  6 1/2 hour drive.  Might as well be 20 hour drive right now.  Winter sucks, I am not gonna try to drive to see her and I can’t really afford a flight either.  So, the next time I get to see her is the end of May beginning of June.  June 3rd is my brother’s 50th Birthday.  Quite the big deal.  I wouldn’t miss this for the world.

Oh, I did order my medical alert bracelet with Low Platelets on it.  The nice ones are so expensive, just didn’t seem right.  I paid just under 50 dollars for mine.  It’s a black silicone band, with a silver bar on it with the information lazered on to it.  It looks cool.  It should be here on the 12th.  I ordered it cuz I felt it was important enough information to share with a 1st responder should I ever need a 1st responder (accident).  I guess it will also inform other medical personnel as well.  Low platelets is a serious issue, I get cut bad somehow, I will bleed out quickly, it’s not pleasant to think about, but it’s my reality now.  Heh, I guess I mentioned my stressor here.

You know what the worse part of Low Platelets is right now.  It’s the fatigue that accompanies it.  I am sleeping 12-16 hours a day right now.  Taking 3 or 4 naps during the day.  It’s truly terrible.

It’s -3 Fahrenheit right now, supposed to get down to -12 tonight.  Darn right cold if you ask me.  It’s supposed to be colder tomorrow, with like a high of -5 down to -20.  Yeah, welcome to winter.  Happy New Year and all that.  Have I mentioned I want to move?  I want to move where the average yearly temperature is 65.  And most of the houses don’t have air conditioners cuz they don’t really need them.  Bet you can’t guess where I am thinking of.

I got the Dungeons and Dragons Tomb of Annihilation Board Game for Christmas.  It looks really cool cuz I got the deluxe edition, so all the miniatures are painted.  I really want to play it, it supposedly only takes an hour to play it.  And it lets you play it solo, or with 2-5 players.  Which is cool.  I just want to play it when my head isn’t hurting so bad.  I want to enjoy it, and this headache is running rampant over everything.  The headache will go away, eventually.  And then I will play the game.

Remember back a few months ago, I told you we got some puzzles to do together.  Well, we spent 1 night doing the borders, then just kinda stopped.  I don’t know if we will ever get back into it.  Kinda stupid of us to spend 50 bucks on puzzles and not do them.   Teresa says it’s my fault, I don’t see how it is.  Oh well, maybe some day we will get back at them.

Thinking I am gonna chill out to Rod Stewart’s Greatest Hits (which is definitely missing some great tracks) and try to play some computer game.  Maybe even Skyrim heh.  I know I have some readers who are feeling the cold with me.  And I know I have some readers who live on the bottom side of the world digging summer right now.  Whatever the weather you got, I hope you are staying comfortable.

I was gonna put the Let it Snow video on here, but even I can’t be that cruel, even with the headache.  So instead you get this

Yeah, I played Madness yesterday.  But this is a much better video/song.  So here ya go.  PEACE.
