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
