Decided to extended my visit to the Region since I have nothing else going on right now. I will be there from tomorrow the 21st to next Friday the 28th. I hope to spend some of that time with friends as well as my family. The ticket change only cost me 50 dollars, so I jumped at the chance to stay for a few more days. It’ll do me good to get out of town, get out of Iowa, get out and do things and see people. I’ve been at home for a long time again and it is time to get free from the routine of not doing anything.
Have a blood test on Monday… Mom assured me that we can get the test done without an appointment at a number of places. So, that is covered. Other than that, my week appears to be free. Hopefully mom and/or Jim have things they want to do and drag me along, and hopefully some of my friends will be around to do lunch or dinner or something. I really don’t relish the idea of sitting around my brother’s house doing nothing for a week. I’m sure someone will have something.
Still have to get up around 3am-3:30am tomorrow to get to the airport by 5ish, have to have my bag checked by 5:45am. My flight out is supposed to be at 6:33 and for some reason it is taking longer than anyone else’s flight to get from Des Moines to O’Hare. But I guess that is ok. I am in no rush. Just gonna miss the 8am bus to Portage, after getting my luggage and walking the 15 minutes to where the bus picks up… I should have about an hour to wait for the 10am bus. Then 10am bus gets me into Portage a little after noon. I am to call mom from Highland to tell her I am almost to Portage, she is picking me up at the bus stop and then taking me to lunch (she doesn’t know this yet, but I should be starving by then). So, should hit their house around 1:30 and then a serious nap will be in order. ALL GOOD.
According to the weather predictions I have read. 100% chance of thunder and lightning. 60% chance of rain for Jim’s Summer Party. Good thing they have a BIG garage. People will just get wet from the dash from their car at the school, across the street, and to the garage… It’s supposed to be spotty rain, so maybe people can time it right and not get wet. We’ll see.
I hope that everyone who said they are coming to party makes it. Otherwise there are going to be a lot of leftovers. Jim and mom bought food for, I believe she said, 50 to 75 people, that is a lot of food.
I hope my friends who have said they would make it do so. I do not have nearly as many friends as my brother does, but I think I am closer to my friends but I could be wrong on that point. It’s all good though, it will be great to see the friends I see and ok if I miss a friend or two again. Life has a way of causing people to miss each other sometimes.
WWE 2k19 will wait until I get back from my trip. So………………
I am still playing SKYRIM: Didn’t like being a vampire, maybe if I started at level 1 as a vampire lord, it’d been cooler. But it seemed kind of dumb and dull as a vampire at level 20. So I bailed on her.
Went back to playing an Orc Warhammer wielder. Somehow Lydia disappeared, thought I accidently killed her. Couldn’t find her body. Couldn’t control summon her. Couldn’t accept a new follower, was told I already had a follower. Had to the command to end my followership and then I picked up Iona from Riften. She rocks. First, she uses a war axe and not a boring sword, secondly instead of telling me “I got a bad feeling about this”, she says “There is going to be a fight up ahead.” Yeah, all around a tougher follower than Lydia ever was.
So, my new Orc is level 17 now. I almost forgot to go get the Agent of Dibella. So she is heading to Markarth next to get that. Then I am heading back to Riften to do the thieves’ guild quests. Oh, by the way, if you try to do Brynoff’s first quest and Shivani keeps narcing on you, run back by the grave entrance to the thieves’ guild, make sure no one else is around, and kill her. No penalty. And then you can do the quest normally. Got tired of getting a 5gp fine and failing the quest. Reloaded, took her around behind the Temple of Mara, no guards, no nothing, boom, dead Shivani and I did the quest with no problem. Heh, should have figured that out a long time ago.
