Gotta love Black Friday week

There is something special about the week before Thanksgiving… well more specific the week of BLACK FRIDAY.  Almost every online store has their Black Friday deals available all week or even longer.  So cool if you ask me.  Teresa right now is hip deep in the PlayStation store shopping for a couple new games.

Black Friday at Amazon is not as impressive as Prime Days, which is a bummer.  But I totally understand Amazon’s thought process, make Prime Days BIGGER and BETTER.


I decided on which Bluetooth headset I wanted.  I am going with Apple Airpods.  It was close between them and the Jabra elite 65t headset.  I might change my mind cuz the Airpods won’t work with a PC’s Bluetooth, but the 65t will in theory.  So maybe I haven’t decided just yet.  They are almost exactly the same price.  So that’s not helping me decide.  I’ll probably stick with the Airpods.


I have been trading emails with Con (that’s his name) at Affordable Scotland.  The name is ironic cuz he came back with the highest prices for what I am looking for.  But he is the only person to write me back so far and he asked good questions without making me feel like an idiot.  His suggested itinerary is almost exactly what I had in mind.  So that is way cool.  I like him so far, and liking who you are dealing with for a 2000+ dollar trip is important.

I got to talk with my brother.  He agreed to go with me to Scotland.  We are talking about going the first week of October.  This is all assuming I survive this MDS/AML crap and I feel up to it.  But at some point, we are gonna have to put deposits down.  So we wait til Dr. Alkhateeb says I am gonna be ok.


I still don’t know what else to get Teresa for Christmas.  And I don’t know what else I want for Christmas either.  Well, I have stuff on my Amazon list that I could get for myself.  They would make excellent Christmas gifts for me.  But Teresa doesn’t have a list.  Furthermore, most everything we want, we just buy it all year round.  So there is usually nothing for either of us to get the other for Christmas, or rather 1 big thing and nothing else. For instance, I (she’s really doing it) am getting her a Kindle Oasis for Christmas and as far as I know, nothing else.   She is getting me a Bluetooth headset of my choice and nothing else as far as I know.  1 Big Item and nothing else.


I feel a lot better than I did a few days ago, but my cough sounds a lot worse.  Instead of a dry cough its wet and nasty sounding.  I don’t know if I am getting better or worse.  Have to be getting better.  The wet cough is an anomaly.  Yeah, that’s it.


I’m tired of taking all these pills.  It’s ridiculous.  I keep finding stray pills all over the place which means I dropped them while getting ready to take them.  Nobody should be forced to take so fricking many pills.  I’m sure I could get by with less pills.  Oh, don’t listen to me, I am just whining.  I’ll shut up about it now.


Did I mention its weird thinking I might have a future after all?  See, with blood stats being normal for so long, Dr Alkhateeb thinks the new stem cells might have destroyed the bad chromosomes.  And new healthy ones grew in their place.  Which is a very outside chance that it happened that way, but we will run with it.  And I will continue to plan my future.
