Good things come to those who wait

Mom didn’t stay long.  She never does, something about not wanting to get in the way.  Bah.  Well, at least we had one good night together, we went to HuHot, which happens to be her favorite restaurant.  I felt like crap afterwards, I guess going out for dinner is just too much for me.  Anyhow, these bad days/good days are driving me nuts.   Can’t count on anything from me, I might be having a bad day.  Bah.

Anyhow, her and Jim are coming for Thanksgiving, since I can’t go to them (cats).  Jim is bringing his work computer and work while he is here.  Too much money for working the holiday, triple time.  I would work it too.  It’ll be good to see my brother, the last time he was here I spent the visit in the hospital.  Fun Visit.  I can’t even remember if they came and saw me in the hospital, I have memory issues.

Furthermore, mom is coming back for Christmas since Jim has to work.  So she wants to spend Christmas with us.  So she will be here Thanksgiving and Christmas.  One Teresa goes all out for and one that kinda exists.   Oh well, it’s time I get to spend with my mom.

Then there is my AINT DEAD YET Party.   Yup, mom and Jim are coming to it.  So are maybe Ruby and Charlie and more of the Jackson clan.  It’ll be good to see Ruby and Charlie if they can make it.  But I understand that blood family comes before chosen family.  And if Ray needs them, then they can’t make the party.


Ya know all that searching I was doing for a D&D game,  I finally found one.  Starting in a couple weeks.  Ran by Cori.  Yeah, I have mentioned her here before.   Well, I had decided I was gonna run a second game cuz I couldn’t find an interesting free one.  I told her, and she goes “Oh, I was thinking of starting one.”  I was Hot Damn, I don’t have to run a 2nd game.  My game could have started immediatelyish, she needs a couple weeks to get prepared.  I understand totally.  When I first was starting this game, I took a month to get prepared, only needed 2 weeks and went crazy for 2 weeks, but that is me.  Cori is a new DM, she has a lot to think thru.  So now I wait.  Already decided on a class, Arcane Archer from Unearthed Arcana.  Already been DM approved.   Happy Hectic for that one. Made about a dozen more characters, just didn’t feel connected to any of the others.  So, my Plate Mail wearing Arcane Archer will in all likely hood what I will be playing in Cori’s campaign.


Today I am depressed.  Has to be because mom left.  No other reason to be depressed (well, besides the obvious dying thing).  This is totally situational.  Getting depressed makes me feel like crap physically too.  Something similar to being ran over by a mac truck.  So I am feeling pretty rotten.  But that is today.


Tomorrow, we go to Mayo.  blah.  I am tired of going to Mayo for no good news.  Now not getting any more bad news and not getting any good news.  We jut get a “You doing great,  Jeff”  If I am doing so great, why are we all watching my blood stats, waiting for them to CRASH?  I guess the longer they don’t crash, the longer I get with Teresa.  The longer I live.  Heh.
