Trying to keep my mind on happier things

We finally got word on our car.   We were told it was fixed, and only cost us 179 bucks.  We were very happy, until Teresa drove it home.  There is a horrendous banging/crunching sound coming from the rear end of the car.  I can’t believe that the guys at Modern Motors released it to us.  The car goes back into the shop next Tuesday. It would be Monday, but we have to leave for Mayo at 3:30am.


I have decided against Undead for my D&D game.  Why?  Cuz what I found is better.  I never was really excited about Undead anyway.  Just got to figure out what to do with what I found.  Can’t just have the party randomly comes across monster X.  I think I need to send them back to the Hole.  Yeah, there is the idea.


Danny’s game, I posted what we need to do on the Facebook chat.  I posted the first step of many.  This guy who plays with us went off and started talking about step 23 or so.  I am like we have to find the bad guys first.  And we really only have one way of finding these bad guys, go back to where we first encountered them and track them.

Indiza, my Rogue is now Indiza, my Ranger.  No pet.  He is gonna be the one to track the bad guys.  Plus the party was lacking damage, and Rangers can do some serious damage when built right.  I am +9 to hit, and +7 to damage with a bow, suffering no penalty for long range (600ft) or cover of any kind.  So, I am pretty dangerous with my bow.

Anyhow, the bad guys are Yuan-ti, which are the mortal enemy of Aarokocra, which is what my Ranger is.  A birdman if you would rather, and Yuan-ti are snake men.  The snake men happen to love to munch on birdmen, which seems backwards, but hey, it’s not my game.

Danny is doing a great job as DM.  For him roll20 works really well.  Roll20 is just not for me.  Danny says theater of the mind is harder.  I think roll20 is just too confining.  So we won’t agree on which is better.  But we will agree that both ways can be fun.


Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) has hit hardcore.  I look outside at the gloom of winter and just get more depressed.  I am sleeping more.  Tired all the time.  Just miserable when I am not occupied.  SAD is a real thing, and lots of people suffer from it.


Well, this Monday is my visit with Dr. Alkhateeb.  We are almost off of tacrolimus.  So, should have no problem having my bone marrow biopsy before the end of the year.  Well, except for everyone else trying to get their tests in before the end of the year.  But I am gonna ask for it and hope it happens like I want it to.

Yes, this bone marrow biopsy is really the one that says whether I live or die.  Cuz I have decided no more chemo, and Teresa has agreed with me, I think.  So, unless Dr. A comes up with some major reason why I need more chemo I won’t be having it.  I don’t want to die, but I am ready to die if it is my time.   Sure would like to live though.

I am 49 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
