Places to go, People to see, Things to do

I finally broke down and actually took a Restoril last night.  I slept from 10pm till 9am and I feel much better for it.  I really needed a good nights sleep.  I feel the tinge of the Restoril hangover, but that’s ok, I feel good.   Speaking of ways to sleep and feel better, I am going to get new masks for my CPAP machine and try it again.  I did sleep better when I used it and when I sleep better I feel better.  So it’s an idea, I have to do something to get better sleep, and I don’t want to take Restoril every night.


Whatever I did to my right knee is really painful.  I don’t know how I hurt it.  But it’s so painful to kneel on, and it’s the knee I kneel on to get into bed.  3am I wasn’t awake when I got up to alleviate some bladder pressure, I came back to bed, put that knee down, and almost screamed out.  Pain level is about a 6 or 7.  And now it’s hurting all the time, not just when I kneel on it, pain level about a 2 just hanging out.  I really should go see Chris and get an X-ray, but I got more important things to do today.


Today, I am having lunch with Drew.   As a matter of fact, I should be in the shower now and getting ready.  I am supposed to pick him up at 11am.  But it doesn’t take me long to shower and it only takes 15 minutesish to get to his office.  So I am good on time still.


Danny finally sent out the invites this morning.  I already forget the name of his campaign but somehow the day moved up to the 21st instead of the 28th.  Oh well, it’s all good, gonna play some D&D.  PLAY not DM.  Yeah, buddy.  Still haven’t decided which character I am playing, but it’s fine, I have 4 days to pick, 1 day to get him ready, and then we play..  I don’t know the other 2 players at all.  And Danny needs 1 or 2 more players too.  Oh well, he’s good and filling in players, so I won’t worry about it.


I bought my tickets to fly to my brother’s party, well fly to Chicago and take the Bus into Portage.   I am flying in on a Friday and out on a Sunday.  Heh, not a whole lot of time to visit, but if I get into school for Summer, I will have a class on Thursday evening and a final on that Monday.  So, heh, I get a less than 3 day vacation.  But that’s fine, I get to see my mom and brother and some of my friends, even if it’s just for a day.


OK, you all should know that I am a planner.  I planned out my schedule for the entire time I was to be at DMACC for all those AAS and Diplomas and Certificates.  Well, I did it with only 6 credits every summer.  Full time is 8 credits.  So, I had to redo the whole scheduled to take 9 credits every summer.   Which totally screwed up all my 12 and 15 credit Fall and Spring semesters.  So, I redid the whole thing over again with 9 credit summers.  I did it, and somehow didn’t get done any quicker.  4 years and 2 semesters.  Just 1 semester is now Summer 2019 and ends Fall 2023.  That’s ok.

I am heading up to DMACC today to get the things straightened out that I need to straighten out to get in to classes this summer.  Should be no problem, but maybe a problem with financial aid.  But I am gonna ask and see what they have to say.  I think I will start with financial aid and then move to admissions.  I also need to get a parking pass, the one I got 2 years ago has disappeared and it’s still in the system.  Also as long as I get there by 1pm I can get my picture taken for my new ID.   Yep, quite a bit to get done in one trip up to the college.

With the adding of 1 more class to my summer schedule, I have decided I am not going to do sign language at this time.  I am taking Composition I, Business Math, and Introduction to Philosophy this summer if I can get financial aid.


Gotta run, need to get ready and go
