Black Friday I think I will stay home

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and leftovers are on most everybody’s lunch list.  Not to be left out, I had leftover lasagna from a few days ago cuz after once having Teresa’s Thanksgiving food, I just couldn’t bring myself to eating too much again.  It’s all good though, the lasagna was delicious and the Thanksgiving leftovers will be there tomorrow and the next day.  I am the human leftover disposal unit in this house.  When Teresa eats a leftover I usually get confused.  She might have ate the leftover turkey, cuz I could not find that when I went looking for lunch.  Oh well, we got another turkey breast to be cooked real soon.  It’s all good.


I received a shirt in the mail today.  It’s a Gang Family Reunion (Thanksgivingfest) ZOO (where we lived at Ball State), remembrance t-shirt.  It’s really cool.  Black with white writing on it.  Thank you AJ, thank you for being my sister, thank you for being my friend, thank you for the t-shirt.


It’s Friday, that feels like a Monday, weird.  It’s all because Teresa got yesterday off.  As did most of America.  But she is “working” today, so it feels weird.


It’s Black Friday and according to Facebook, people are going nuts in stores again.  Don’t you know you can stay home and order most of this stuff online for close to the same price and the only personal damage you have to worry about is getting a hangnail.  Yup, in the past 2 days, I have spent too much money, without leaving the comfort of my bed.  Didn’t have to fight or wrestle anything away from anyone.  Yeah, some people love the physicalness of Black Friday, I say give me the prices and let me order from home.


I did it, I ordered me a new laptop.  This one gave me one error too many.  I probably could have reformatted this one and it would have been fine, but I wanted a new one.  So, my new laptop was expensive, so its gonna take me a few months to pay it off my credit card.  So what?  Teresa OKed it, and she is the only one that had the right to veto it. So, it’s all good, come around December 18th of so, I will have my new laptop.


I’ve been playing a little Skyrim again.  Going really slow.  Like 10 minutes here 20 minutes here slow.  But I am having fun, and that is all that matters.


Teresa went and got an XBOX Ultimate subscription and started playing The Outer World which is a First Person Shooter Role Playing Game set it space.  She seems to like it.  Seems to be having fun. And that is what I wanted for her.  PLUS my XBOX is finally getting some use.   Bonus-I get to play Oblivion on the XBOX.  I hope they have instructions somewhere cuz I remember trying to play it on the PC and not having much of a clue as to what I was doing.  But that was years ago.  So, anyhow, the subscription was a dollar for 3 months.  I guess in 3 months she’ll decide if it is worth the real cost.


Next week is DLI week.  I have no clue what this DLI is gonna do for me, but I will go get it done.  But before the DLI, I get blood on Monday.  Definitely Monday.  My hemoglobin should be around 7.5ish, I should be feeling very rotten.  The transfusions help for a little bit.  So I should feel ok for the DLI (the whole trip to Mayo for that matter).


Then mom and Jim will be here for a few days.  YAY
