Goodbye Inkling, Hello Idea

Restoril is good stuff.  I like how it helps me sleep the whole night.  Still not a big fan of the lingering tiredness, but like I said, I’ll get used to it.  I didn’t sleep as much last night as the night before, only about 9 hours, but they were a good 9 hours of sleep, what more can I ask for in the sleep realm?  I wonder if Dr. Alkhateeb wrote the script for more or not?  Will find out later.


Not cycling at all.  Everything is back to normal.  I am mellow happy Hectic.  I am so happy (not manicy) that I stopped the cycling after a week or so.


Teresa is working from home today cuz she couldn’t get out of the driveway this morning.  We got a lot of snow (for us) overnight.  I would estimate 6 to 9 inches is about right.  So I get to spend the day with my wife.  Even though she is working, I like to have her around the house.


The web development Udemy course is calling.  I hope to get thru quite a bit of it today as I didn’t get as much done as I wanted yesterday.   I am still on BASIC HTML and am a little bored, I foresee it changing soon even.  I know the basic html fairly well.  I can make a website that looks like something from the early 90s already.  I need to learn CSS and JavaScript, which she covers.  And databases, which she also covers.  So I need to buckle down and get to it.


I personally had fun with last nights D&D session.  I think my players did too.  Only 1 combat, and a bunch of roleplay.  It went smoothly, like we hadn’t been on hiatus for 2 months, like we didn’t lose a wizard and gain a wizard.  It’s all good.  The players fell back into their roles perfectly and we played.


Next session if Jason’s Friday night game.  Hope I don’t get sick again.  Last week on Saturday, the players asked Jason about me, checking to make sure I was ok.  That was nice of them.  They don’t know me from anyone yet they cared enough to check up on me.  Yeah, I am gonna like playing with them.


I figured out what I am doing for Sunday’s game.  Slavers.  It’ll be fun.  They are gonna assault a slaver caravan and rescue a slave.  Yup, that’s what I have planned.


The ridiculous cold hits tomorrow and Friday, will lows of -9, wind chills down to -25 to   -35.  Morning is not the time to go out for the next few days.  Nope, too fricking cold.  Plus its supposed to snow every day for the next 4 or 5.  Not a lot of snow, just enough to keep the roads a mess.


Still waiting for the fireplace repair guy.  Good thing we aren’t in a rush.  It should be about a 10 minute fix we think, it was the last time it broke like this.  But hey, it’s the middle of winter and there are people without heat, they should go first.


Exactly 2 weeks until my trip up to Mayo for the Bone Marrow Biopsy.  They will also check my blood levels, and I will also see the pharmacist and Dr. Alkhateeb himself.  I hope it isn’t snowing while we head up there cuz if they close the 35 we are screwed.


My idea has become more than an inkling.  I have actually done some preliminary work on said idea.  Nothing too serious.  Just an outline.  More ideas to add to my idea.  I think I liked it more as an inkling.  But its too big to be an inkling now.  So idea it is.  My idea might get squashed by the results of my bone marrow biopsy.   But it’s all good, it’s given me something to work on besides D&D.  So I think its good for me.  So everyone mark today as the day my inkling officially became an idea.
