Well, I didn’t wake up to a bad dream today. Instead I was awoken at 6:21 by hungry dogs, and it is my job to feed them in the morning on the weekends. So up I got to feed said dogs and make sure they went outside to take care of business. Then I thought I would just go back to sleep. HA. No such luck, Laid here for a half hour trying to go back to sleep, but no luck. I’ll just take a nap or two or three later and all will be fine with the world again.
Boo, I am 208 at the morning weigh in. Inching closer to that 210 mark which will make me freak. I know it was that piece of lasagna I had right before I went to bed that put me up to 208. Once it and the other I had a 5:30 pass thru the system, I’ll be back to my weight range, so it’s not as bad as it sounds anyway. The reality of it is, I just really don’t want to get to 210 and I might just do work to keep it from happening, I might just start walking again. I used to walk an hour a day. Fatigue from the transplant zapped that down to 20 minutes a day. I think I could do an hour a day again now.
Neven first session went great. We had a little generation gap issue or two, but everyone said they had a great time and that it was really fun. Taking 6 people and making them have fun for 3 hours, that is all I really want. Heh, the party worked together really well for not knowing each other, they tried to protect the casters, the big guys stepped up, it went exactly how it was supposed to go. A definite success and I really look forward to next week.
Aravas is next on Tuesday night. A couple stray undead groups, and then dealing with the sleazy gnomes quest. I might even skip the undead groups cuz we are over the undead (for now). Hopefully everyone will show up and we will be able to actually play. Last time I didn’t stick to my rule of if 2 or more people can’t show we don’t play, and it was a mess. Play was a mess, Mumble had issues, it was just a bad session. Everybody has a bad one now and then and this way my bad one that shouldn’t have happened. So, Tuesday night they get to traipse thru the wilds to find a body and hope his glowing box is still on him. Not likely.
Danny’s game starts in 4 days and I am seriously thinking of bailing on it. Not because of Danny, but because I am way behind on my website and Teresa is willing to help me in the evenings, and I already have 2 evenings booked with my games. If I book a 3rd I might never get done with my website. Yeah, Danny’s game might just take the hit. I want to play in it, I want to play Shoten the Dark so bad. But I got to get my priorities straight and get to work.
In 19 day (20 if you count today) we will be at Mayo AGAIN. This time to get more stem cells pumped in. Seems that Dr. Alkhateeb doesn’t think the stem cells I got are enough to keep me living for a long time. So, more stem cells to fight any leukemia or mds that rears its ugly head. I can get behind that I guess. I mean I don’t really want to go thru this who mess again (3 times) but I know he is just trying to extend my life. The least I can do is go thru with it.
Remember, no talking to Teresa about this. The SAR came back, said family contribution is 21000 dollars, yeah, right. But more importantly it said that I have 9600 in student loans that I am eligible for. That will possibly get me to school. I figured out my schedule, I am gonna do web development and marketing. I want to do all my classes on campus, nothing online or what they call web blended which is half online and half in class. So my schedule runs from Fall 2019 to Spring 2022. I will actually graduate with a Web Development AAS a little over half way thru then finish and graduate again with the Marketing AAS. What I am hoping to do with these degrees, I do not know. But I want to get a degree (or 2) before I die, it’s a personal goal thing. It’s something I feel I have to do and I have chosen two subjects that really interest me. So, hopefully, I won’t freak out and I will be able to do this. Right now, I am just a little excited about it all.
Oh yeah, after waking up so early yesterday with the bad dream, I did take 3 naps in order to be awake for the game. I do not normally take 3 naps for any reason, but for this occasion a 3rd nap was in order. Speaking of nap, I think I might be able to take one now, so ta taaaaa.
