Things are going good except sleep issues

Sleep?  What is that?  No, seriously I am definitely not getting enough at night.  It’s beginning to take it’s toll on my mental status.  I’m getting crabbier and I don’t want to work on my project for fear of messing it up cuz I am so tired.  Tonight I will take Ambien, it will at least give me 6 hours of sleep which is about half again more than I am getting at night.  I still haven’t made it to see Chris for Restoril, it has to do with I am too tired to drive and its been to rainy to walk (Yes, I live close enough to my doctor’s office to walk).


5 days till Spring officially is here but unofficially its been here for several days.  Apparently, Nebraska is still having winter, but in Adel, Iowa we are having a nice start to Spring.  We needed it, Winter had been getting overly oppressive.  The cold, the SNOW, it was just bad.  Speaking of cold, it was 22 this morning when Teresa left for work, but its supposed to get up to 43 today.  It’s supposed to be in the mid 40s for a few days and then move into the 50s. 50s will feel so nice when they get here and stay, then the 60s and 70s and even 80s.  Then it could stop climbing but it won’t.  We are a state of extremes, it’ll get to 105 with 100% humidity and be totally miserable.  Such is the weather of Iowa.


WordPress worked yesterday.  The other day must have been an anomaly.  I have been using WordPress for a long time now and never had a problem before.  So yeah, it was a fluke error.  Today’s post should post just fine, I hope 🙂


Facebook’s problems seemed to have been resolved by yesterday.  As I was on it all day yesterday and had zero problems.  For such a big company, with so many people working for it, you’d think they wouldn’t have such blatant issues, cuz it was really bad the other day.  But its fixed, so it should be all good again.


I have no regrets on bailing on the Sunday game.  Point Buy sucks and play by post is BORING.  So, I walk away with my head held high.


My D&D campaign called Neven is a go on Friday nights.  I got my 6 players yesterday.  Chris H and Cori for sanities sake, and the 4 kidlings.  They are actually early 20 somethings.  Gonna be interesting.  I look forward to this campaign too. The kidlings are funny, should be a blast.  That is if they take things at least kind of seriously.  And we play some serious D&D.  I recruited these people yesterday, and all of them (except Chris) finished their characters yesterday.  I told them they had till Tuesday, but they all jumped right on it and made their characters.  They only had one problem, no healer.  Doh, oops.  A couple of the players said let them die, I explained that I don’t really kill characters, and it would be partially my fault when they died and I didn’t want that so I offered them a healbot to go with, who would take 1/7th of xp and loot.  They didn’t want to go so I think someone is switching their character today, and healbot went back into retirement.  So Neven will be a go starting next Friday night.


Aravas is going to have it’s second session on Tuesday and right now after the remaining undead clean up, I am not sure where I want to send them.  I got a few days to figure it out, but right now I am at a loss.  Got a whole continent, got 7 whole continents they could go to.  Got too many options right now, gonna have to narrow it down.  It’s all good, would rather have too many ideas than have no ideas.  The party just hit level 4, got their feats, so they are considerably tougher than they were.  So, I got to step up the enemy encounters, but not till they get some role play in.  Yeah, they are gonna spend some time in the city.  Yeah, that’s what they’ll do for a while.


I got a message from Dr. Alkhateeb’s office.  I got for my first additional stem cell infusion on the 11th but the infusion doesn’t happen till the 12th.  Then I get to go home same day they say, assuming I don’t have any immediate severe reactions.  I’ll miss a Friday night Neven game, but hey, my health is more important than a game.  These infusions are supposed to help extend my life, so I am all for them.  I think I get 3 of them total, maybe 4.  Spread out over 3 or 4 months.  I will get the days switched to Wednesday Thursday instead of Thursday Friday, so my game will not suffer.


Danny’s game still starts on the 27th.  No sooner.  I wonder if he fixed my character yet?


I would step on the scale, but I forgot to first thing this morning and I had a big piece of peach pie and a cheeseburger for breakfast, so it wouldn’t be too accurate right now.  Speaking of peach pie, I know peaches aren’t in season, but the peach pie that Teresa made with the frozen peaches was/is really good.
