Happy Mother’s Day

My mom reads my blog, so here goes….  Happy Mother’s Day,  mom.  I wish I could be there to give you a hug and join you for dinner.  You just live a little too far away for a pap over visit.


This is also the 7th anniversary of my dad’s death.  Yeah, he died on Mother’s Day in 2012.


My hip is still sore from the bone marrow biopsy; it will be for several days.  My shoulders are still tender and achy from the baby shots.  And my knee still is giving me problems.  I am the walking wounded.  But I will survive thing only to go thru most of it again in a month (no biopsy in a month).


Went to bed last night at 11:20 and woke up this morning at 5am.  NAPS will occur today, possibly more than one.  Tonight and for the next few nights I am going to take Restoril and try to fix my sleeping pattern.  Waking up entirely too early.  Brutal on my body thru the long days, especially if I don’t take a nap or two.


Well, it happened, I stepped on the scale and it read 210.2.  Depressing, I blame the Prednisone for making me eat so much.  Hopefully I will somehow magically lose a couple of pounds, I don’t want to weigh 210+.  Maybe I’ll go back to walking.  Need to do something to try to shed some weight.


Skyrim:  My Khajitt is still going strong.  She is level 42 now.  Just got to get her to 50 for the achievement.  Leveling is going slow right now.  But it’s all good.  Still haven’t done the Vampire’s or the Companion storylines. But I did the College yesterday, and the Aethium shard/forge quests, and got all the Dragon Priest Masks.  I almost have every Shout in the game. just missing the ones that are quest locked..  And have 90% of them unlocked, still killing dragons.  Both the main storyline and the civil war storyline are completed.  She is a fun character to play.  And I am going to go get Marcurio for my follower for every character I play, he rocks.


I am dealing with a fairly bad depression.  Started about a month ago and is still going strong.   It’s not a doom and gloom depression, but I am down considerably.  That is why I haven’t tried to get a D&D game going on resume my old D&D game.  My heart (and my mood) is just not into the concept of gaming right now.


Right now, I have nothing planned until June when I go back to the Region for a quick visit and Jim’s party.  Still have to buy my bus ticket from O’Hare to Portage and back.  Mom won’t come pick me up at O’Hare, Midway she was cool with but O’Hare is just a little too much into Chicago to convince her to pick me up.   I wonder if I can change my tickets to stay a little longer?  I think I paid for the upgrade that allows that.  Would be nice to spend a few days with my mother and brother again.


Then after that nothing is planned until GenCon in August.  Looking forward to that.


After August, nothing is on the books until Thanksgivingfest the end of November.  Happy to get to go this year.   I miss my Gang family.  I really wish I could see them more often.  But they collectively live further than my mother and brother, so I won’t get to see them except once or maybe twice a year.  It’ll have to do.


Anxiety wise I have none.  At least none I can identify.  Mayo is what it is, so it doesn’t cause any undo anxiety.  School isn’t happening, so no anxiety there either.  Killing things in Skyrim keeps me as happy as I am going to be right now.   Feels nice to not have any real anxieties to worry about.
