Got sleep, thinking clearly, doing stuff

Last night I slept.  Might have something to with taking enough sleep meds to knock out a 400 pound person.  But the point is, I slept and slept and slept.  Finally getting up for the final time around 1:30pm.  Could have slept more, but I really want to try to sleep tonight.  And normally once I break the insomnia cycle, things go back to normal for my sleeping.  At this point, I have enough meds to do the 400 pounder sleep program about 5 more times if I have to.  Praying to every god I know of to not have to do the 400 pounder plan again though, gives me a hell of a hangover the next day (today).


My mom bowed out of picking a date for my bucket list trip to Oklahoma, leaving it up to my brother and me.  At first we said October.  October would be good except then I will probably be getting a lot of blood and platelets, as we wait for DLIs to really do their trick.  Then we ruled out the winter.  Which brought us to March, by then I should be stable again, not needing blood or platelets, just existing.  So, it looks like the beginning of March will be my bucket list trip.  Heading to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  Never been to Oklahoma, so this should be interesting.


Mom has decided to wait until Spring to really start looking for a house.  Her reasons are hers and I respect them.  Like I said, I just want her to not have to climb a lot of stairs in her home.  So, I will keep looking at Zillow and tell her if anything pops up of interest over the fall/winter.


Jet and Derek are trying to set up a West Marches style Dungeons and Dragons game on Friday nights.   Basically meaning any one can DM who wants to for X amount of nights and then it moves on to another DM.  We haven’t decided levels and so forth yet or even if each DM will have their own party or we will share a party and DMs will have to make their adventures for an ever changing party.  We really need to get everyone who wants to play together and find out what the majority wants.  I am open to just about anything.  I just want to play.


Aravas, my Dungeons and Dragons campaign, will finally have session 2 this coming Tuesday.  That is barring any unfortunate circumstances that might pop up between now and then.  Right now, it looks good though.  We will finally be able to get past the undead and move on to the sleazy gnome.  Which will be progress for the first time in over a month.  Luckily, I have a good group who just want to play in my campaign and haven’t chosen to bail on me yet.  So, it’s all good (right now) for session 2 on Tuesday night.


I don’t know what I am going to do with the rest of my day.  It looks like a lazy day to me.  I am way tired still, after a week of no sleep, you are tired for a few days.  Maybe I will take a nap before it gets too late.  Maybe, I will write a dungeon, haven’t done that in quite a while.  An honest to god dungeon, with dungeon type creatures and dungeon type treasure.  Set it around level 5.  Yeah, I think I will do that today too.  That’ll actually take me a couple days.  Somewhere I have graph paper.  It’s all good, I have discovered something to do with my day.  Something I needed to do anyway.  So it’s all good.
