It’s Day 13 of my headache. Teresa thinks it’s migraines. I think it’s stress. I am finally going to see a doctor tomorrow. I sent an email to my cancer doc’s nurse asking if it could be related to low platelets. Doc said he didn’t think so, but wants to run an MRI of my brain. I said NO to that. I have had too many MRI scans done of my head in my life. Plus since the lithium fiasco of a few years ago, I can’t hold my head still if I have to. I shake. So, in order to get an MRI of my brain, I have to dope myself up with 3 clonazepam which will effectively knock me out. He wants to rule out cancer or tumor in my head. I don’t want to know if I have either of those, really I don’t. So no MRI right now. Lets give the regular doc a chance to stop them and if she fails, we will revisit the MRI route.
In better news, my D&D game was a rousing success. The players all said they have a great time and I had a great time too. It’s all I could ask for. It was 2 hours of laughing and playing sleuth to 2 puzzles and getting their proverbial butts kicked by the 3rd. LOL. It was fun. And remember, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. And luckily, no one got hurt as there was no combat and no one cared. Hey, I got a role playing liking party. OMG, I have missed those. Most parties want hack and slash. WOOT, I can still run 2 hours with no combat and keep the party entertained, I am happy.
I am playing Skyrim again finally. I am playing it with the volume turned way down and subtitles. Stupid headache. Anyhow it’s the best game I have ever played. So much to do. If you remotely like RPGs, either paper or on the computer. Skyrim is definitely worth getting. It’s a couple years old, you can get it super cheap and I have somewhere near 2000 hours invested in it since I got it last Christmas. LOL. It’s a really good game.
I have also played some Civ4 Warlords lately. It’s a game that I believe has really stood up well over time. Not as complex as 6, or as stupid as 5. Civ4 Warlords was simple compared to the complexity of it’s following games. I own 5 and 6 but my love is Civ4 Warlords. I like being Augustus Cesar and building a bunch of cities off the bat, his leadership traits make it possible to not lose too much research quickly. Research is key to winning in my opinion.
Pucky and especially Mojo are not liking winter. They liked being able to go out on their own. Now the dog door was taken out and they are stuck inside like me. It’s just too cold for Chihuahuas right now. It’s supposed to warm up later in a week or so, maybe the dogs will get their door back for a few days.
I’m not liking winter very much either. I don’t like the cold any more than I like the hot of summer. Still have zero ability to control my internal temperature. If I get cold, I am cold for a very long time. Luckily, I have a big coat that can keep me warm enough down to like -60 Fahrenheit. And even luckierly it still fits. LOL. I have put on weight but I guess not in my gut, weird.
Teresa wants heated tile throughout the main floor of the house. I have a friend in the tile business, when I told her how big of an area Teresa wanted done, she flipped. Said it would cost probably around 25,000 dollars low end. I chocked on that. In maybe 20 years we can afford that. So instead Teresa now wants to know just how much is it to tile the whole floor. Now I am not a big fan of tiling every room. Gonna be interesting the discussion we have about this when the reality of the project comes to pass. I happen to like carpet.
I seem to have lost most of my WordPress readers. I got 1 new one, but overall the tracker thing says all my readers are coming from Facebook. Not that it’s a bad thing, just wondering what changed so the WP Readers stopped being interested. Oh well, I write these for me, so for me they will be. And because it’s my blog…….
