Its almost worse than no internet

Our cable is out.  Totally out.  Our neighbor who nicely cuts our lawn accidently drove over the cable with his riding lawnmower late Friday afternoon.  We’ve been without cable all weekend and it has been a little weird.  Anyhow, Teresa is considered a priority customer, so the truck should be here at 8am tomorrow morning to fix said cutting.  Otherwise, we would have been without cable for two weeks for a regular trouble call.  Right now I am connecting via my iPhone and it is SLOW.  So this might take a while to post.  Or it might not post at all, we shall see when I am done.


Still waking up at unreasonable hours.  Still have no clue what is causing this.  But I am getting to nap a little.  Trying not to take big naps hoping not to mess with my sleep.  So, I am limiting myself to an hourish a day napping.  Lack of good sleep sucks by the way.


Jim’s Summer Party is this Saturday.  I hope everyone who said they would make it, makes it.  But I know it is supposed to storm on Saturday evening, so I wouldn’t be mad at anyone who didn’t make it.

My brother posted that there is some kind of problem with the BBQ place.  I hope he gets it worked out.  The BBQ place he uses is phenomenal.   If the BBQ place falls thru, it’s burgers and brats and that is kind of a let down.


Weighed in at 207.2 today.  TMI ALERT TMI ALERT My constipation issues are still going on.  Dr. Alkhateeb doesn’t think it’s a MDS treatment problem.  So, instead of being regular, I am going every 3 or 4 days, sometimes requiring Ex-Lax.  Anyhow, it’s not the end of the world and it’s not going to kill me, so it’s not a horrible issue.  TMI ALERT over.


My right big toe that I hurt the other day is finally looking normal again and not hurting nearly as much.  I can put full weight on it without wincing.  So, I have 10 working toes again to go with the 10 working fingers.


Lou Malanati’s Pizza is amazing.  We order it from Taste of Chicago. We order 6 pepperoni deep dish pizzas at a go.   They arrive individually wrapped and packed in dry ice.   Pop it in a hot 425degree oven for 45 minutes and you have a great pepperoni pizza.  We had another one tonight and it was so good.


SKYRIM:  I had a minor rage fit because my OneDrive was full.   So, I deleted every save except for the first one.  The first one is after the intro and before character creation.  But all the characters…  the orcs, the khajiit, and the high elf, all of them, are gone.  My OneDrive is amazingly empty now.

I started a khajiit assassin, but she didn’t go the way I wanted her to so I bailed on her at level 27.   So, I got a level 13 Warhammer wielding Orc, she kicks butt.  She is leveling really slow, which is allowing me to tailor her the way I want.  So, I think I am an orc fan over the khajiit.  Oh well, someone has to have love for the orcs.


I get on a flight Friday early morning.  Teresa is making me drive myself and park at the airport.   She doesn’t want to be awake at 4am.  So, it’s all good.  I will say goodbye to her Thursday night and sneak out of the house early Friday morning.  Catch my flight, hopefully have a bus ticket to take me from O’Hare to Portage, and be in Portage for lunch, tired as all get out, but I should be there.

Then, the party on Saturday which may be washed out and/or food deprived.  But its all good, then I can not feel bad about staying inside most of the time.

Sunday I catch the 5pm bus to get to O’Hare for my flight home.  Getting home some time around midnight.  So, a real quick weekend visit to see my family and hopefully attend a party.


No video today, my phone doesnt seem to want to let me do it.  No one watches them anyway, so it is not a big loss.
