September showed up while I wasn’t paying attention

Heh, its September already, August seems to have flown by.  Would have liked it to feel a little longer, but hey at least it didn’t drag horribly like July.  OH, I cant say that I have 6 to 12 months to live now, its 5 to 11 months now.  Sorry, had to gloom it up a little.  I’ll try to be better.  September starts a whole new set of allergies and brings about the end of summer and the beginning of fall.  Yes, all the green I see out my window will turn orange, yellow, or brown before falling to the ground.  Fall used to be the start of Seasonal Affective Disorder, but that seems to have moved to Spring with the transplant.  That’s cool, I kind of like Fall.  So welcome September, please take your time passing through.


I slept till 1:30pm today with only a short wake up in there.  Didn’t crawl out of bed till 2pm.  This fatigue is getting to me.  Driving me kind of more insane (if that is possible).  All I want to do all the time I sleep.  I got stuff to finish getting ready for tonight.  I have to take my car over to be fixed.  I have all this stuff to do and all I really want to do is take a nap.  Losing platelets rapidly does not cause fatigue.  Losing hemoglobin slowly does.  No one is really watching my hemoglobin very much cuz my platelets are going to bottom out first.  Fatigue is what sent me to the doctor on April 1st, 2015 to get a blood test, and I have been dealing with cancer ever since.


Yes, I admit it, I have had almost 2 months to name the stupid NPCs in Aravas, my Dungeons and Dragons campaign.  And I still dont have them all  named.  I have the key players named, but not all the councilors and ambassadors they are going to meet tonight.  Yes, I am a slacker, I may just name them on the fly and keep notes.  It wouldnt be the first time I did that.  I was gonna say and probably not the last, but it might very well be the last and that made me sad.  Anyhow, one way or the other, tonight we play… FINALLY.  And that is a good thing.


UPS had a problem delivering our canvas song lyrics thing today.  Bummer.  They say it will be delivered tomorrow.  Today would have been nicer, but I guess tomorrow is ok.


I type a lot about Dungeons and Dragons.  I apologize to those of you who this holds no interest, but as I have said many times before, this blog is written by me for me.  So right now, my life is my wife, my family, my dogs, Dungeons and Dragons, trips to Mayo, blood draws at MOHA and finally me having health problems.  I am dying, simple as that.  I am gonna type about things that make me happy and keep me sane.  In between D&D talk, occasionally I will share something important, so please if you want to follow my blog, great, just understand I will be me.


Friday nights game looks promising.  I had to ban flying characters and flying mounts though.  Which caused a little complaining.  But hey, its important to the story that they just don’t fly over it.  Well that was worked out and now all seven of the  characters are ready.   I think everyone is ready.  I’m ready, I only had to come up with one NPC name of any significance for this first adventure.  So I am good to go there.


And finally Jason’s Sunday game.  I’m going to have to probably bail out early on the game because we have to be at Mayo early Monday morning.  But I am very much looking forward to playing my Changeling Thief.  I was surprised when Facebook said I had only know Jason for a year, man dose it seem like longer.  Oh well, we will play in Eberron and have a damn good time.


Then Monday is a 16 hour day at Mayo.  I don’t feel like getting into what all is going to happen.  I think I am getting my 3rd set of baby shots, but they might be delayed cuz my platelets will be so low.  But we shall see.
