Anxiety Sucks, Good game, and D&D

Teresa just beat Horizon: Zero Dawn on Story difficulty (one step lower than easy).  She sure seemed to have a lot of fun.  She says it should get Game of the Year and I agree with her even though I haven’t played very much of it yet.  It somehow managed to keep a dystopian society kinda light hearted.  Mainly killing robots instead of people was kinda cool too.  Anyhow, it took her about 2 weeks of sporadic play to beat the game.  That is a cool amount of time.  And Aloy, the heroine, is actually kind of a cool character.  It’ll take a really great game to beat it for Game of the Year, because Horizon: Zero Dawn is a great game in it’s own right.

Now she is starting The Last of Us.  I know nothing about this game.  But I know this game won Game of the Year when it came out (last year? maybe).  It appears so far to not be my type of game, not into survival horror games anymore.  I didn’t think it was Teresa’s thing either.  But it was only 12 bucks.  So I say let her play.


I’m already getting nervous about going to Mayo Clinic.  I hate having an anxiety disorder.  This should be a just looking forward to it thing, not a anxious thing.  The worst that can happen is they say there is nothing that can be done (which is what Dr. Wehbe said), the best would be they have a cure.  I’d settle getting back up to 90 where I was in my first year and half of remission.  But hey, I got a week and a day before my appointment, plenty of time to make myself sick with anxiety.  Heh.


We still haven’t had snow yet.  Almost to the record for no measurable snowfall in Des Moines until X date.  In this case it was the 13th I believe.  And there is no snow in the forecast worth mentioning.  As a matter of face for the next week or so it is supposed to be in the mid 40s, about average for this time of year, at least that is what I think I heard on the news, I could be way off and a snowstorm is hitting tomorrow.   All I know is that I stepped out the last few days to get the mail barefoot and without a coat and didn’t immediately go numb.  So it hasn’t been bad.


The shot in the neck takes 2 weeks to give full effect.  I am cool with that.  My neck only hurts when I am sitting at my desk using my keyboard and mouse or when I am driving. You know, when holding my arms up.   I try to avoid doing all of the above as much as possible.  I hope the x-ray’s that were taken Friday show or don’t show anything, nothing marginal.  If they show, Dr. Ransdell will do something for my back pain, if it doesn’t show he will order an MRI to find out what is wrong.  If its wishy-washy, I have no clue what he will do if anything, and not doing anything sucks.


My mood is solidly good though.  SAD is over it seems.  Yay for the good guys.  SAD is almost totally debilitating when it hits and takes a lot to overcome.  And it just goes away randomly it seems.  But one way or the other, it’s gone and I am happy Hectic again, even if I am a little anxious.


This Friday will be the 2nd time playing in the every other Friday night D&D campaign over roll20 and mumble.  I am very much looking forward to it.  As much as I love DMing, playing is just as cool.  I’ve decided that if no one else steps up to take leadership, then I guess I will try to.  I mean we got stuff accomplished just fine without a “leader”, but heh, it’s just have been easier with someone calling the shots.  We got a cowardly bard, a chaotic stupid barbarian, a cleric, a thief, and me, a Ranger.  I seem to me to be the likely choice, either me or the cleric and I think he wants to be leader less than I do.  So, I will more than likely try to step up.

Besides, we got Yuan-Ti in our immediate future.  I have a personal vendetta against Yuan-Ti in general.  So I really won’t be listening to anyone else anyway, so they might as well listen to me.


I posted in the Facebook group of my D&D game that is starting on January 2nd that I needed 2 more players and I was tapped out of possibilities.  The DM of the Friday night games, who is a player in mine, said he has me covered.  Alrighty then, I will not try to find 2 more players if he has people in mind.  That will give me 5 for sure players.  Which is plenty.  6 is optimum.  We’ll have 6 if my one friend can swing Tuesday nights off from his new job.


Mom will be here Saturday around noon.  That’s good.  That’ll give us a day before we have to drive up to Rochester.  I like spending time with my mom.  Like I said before, I wish it was for a better reason.  But I will take seeing my mom any way I can.


Steps forward in 2 medical issues. Yeah.

Progress on the back pain front.  I got an epidural shot in my neck again.  After this initial achy feeling, I should be pain free for 3ish months in my neck/shoulder area.  Then he finally ordered a set of x-rays of my spine, this is in order to see if there is any visible problem with my spine (there isn’t or if there is color my surprised).  In any event, this is first step of getting things done to make me have less back pain.  After he gets the results of my x-rays (Monday) he will probably order an MRI.  The MRI is to show all the muscles and veins and stuff.  He would then be able to see what is damage there.  This will be good.  Hoping to get the MRI scheduled before the end of the year.  Gonna be a pain in the butt to get it done between Christmas and New Years.  But yay for the first step taken to getting relief.


I go to Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, MN, from Dec 18-20.  This is for my platelet issue.  They could have gotten me in to see someone today, but that was kinda short notice to pack up and get there.  As it is, my mom is flying in on Saturday to drive me up to Mayo on Sunday, then we are staying til Wednesday at least.  Mayo said they tell new patients that it is gonna be 1 to 3 days. DOH.  So, I made me hotel reservation for 4 nights, just in case Wednesday runs late and we have to stay til Thursday.  Anyhow, I hold out a lot of hope that Mayo knows something that Dr. Wehbe doesn’t.  That there is a cure for treatment related myleodysplacia.  I do not want to be getting infusions for the rest of my life.  And that is what I am looking at right now.  So off to Mayo to hopefully get my platelet problem fixed.


It’s off Friday for our every other Friday D&D game.  Still not sure why it’s every other Friday and not every Friday, but hey, DM says every other, it’s all good.  Had a blast last week, and am looking forward to next week.


I still only have 3 players for my new D&D campaign.  I still have some time to find more, but it’s weird, I have 11 players for 2 campaigns before and only 3 for new campaign.  Oh well, I will find 1 or 2 more.  Rest assure we will have 4 maybe 5 players in my new campaign.  I’ve tentatively made some decisions as to what the campaign is going to be, I would post them, but they are not concrete decisions yet and at least 1 of my players reads this blog.  So just trust me when I say things are happening for it.  But still don’t know if it;’s gonna be Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night.  That might not be decided until the week we begin lol.  Sorry guys, but that may be all the notice I can give.


Last night I forgot it was Thursday again.  I only caught the last 5 minutes of Leukemia chat.  I got to tell them I am going to Mayo.  They are very much rooting for some miracle cure for me.  It’s a real shame I have problems with remembering Thursday until it’s too late.  Those are good people who really are rooting for me.


I did go to Edwina’s Bipolar Chat and tell them about going to Mayo too.  Most of those people are rooting for me too.  Most of those people are good people who drew a crappy card from the deck of life.


I’m happy my mom is coming to visit.  I wish it was for a better reason (like she wanted to) and not because I needed to go to Mayo.  But I get to spend a few days just me and mom.  That is cool.   I love my mom.  She is the greatest.  I miss her terribly.  But I understand her desire to be back in the Region.  So, I just get to be happy when we visit her and she visits us.


 

Of Black Friday and Medical Crap

We shopped on Black Friday but we didn’t leave our house.  All the presents were downloads from either the Playstation store or Steam.  So, needless to say, Teresa and I have already given each other our gifts.  Well, she got what she wanted, I got what I wanted.  And she does have a Nintendo Switch on the way (she ordered that before we left to come home, no clue when it’s supposed to arrive).  It’s all good getting the brunt of Christmas done early.  The only other 2 people I buy for are my brother and mother, and they both wanted gift cards from Amazon (well that is what mom wants, I am just assuming brother will be cool with a gift card).  I always find something cool for my brother for his birthday in June.  So, basically I got 2 gift cards to go and I am DONE Christmas shopping.

In case you didn’t know, Christmas is a holiday I choose not to celebrate.  I am no longer Bah Humbug, but I am still not going to put up a tree or decorate or go around telling everyone “Merry Christmas”.  I just don’t dig this holiday.  I give gifts to 3 people, because I love them and they celebrate and expect gifts, and it’s not worth the fight.


While at my brother and mother’s house, I broke Mojo’s food bowl.  Didn’t mean to, it was at the foot on the bed and I rolled over and stretched knocking it off to the tile floor.  It was a total break.  So Teresa took Pucky and Mojo to Petsmart today (right now) to get Mojo a new bowl and probably some more stuff for them for Christmas.  I probably should have went to keep her from going nuts, but people at this time of year are not my thing.  So I stayed home.  —  She is picking up Applebee’s on the way home.


The D&D game I am joining is supposed to start this coming Friday, but none of us can figure out how to add our characters to roll20.  Something about needing the game masters permission, and our game masters is as clueless about it as the rest of us are.  I guess we have a few days to figure it out, but I hate waiting to last minute to get anything done, and entering our characters in for the first time is going to take a while I am sure.


I ordered an IPhone 8+ which should be here tomorrow.  It is to replace my overly flakey IPhone 7+.  I could have got the X, but I didn’t want to pay 20 bucks more a month to Sprint.  Instead the 8+ is only a dollar forty seven more.  Here’s to hoping that the 8+ is less of a pita than the 7+ has been.  The 8+ is not a Christmas present, it’s just a necessity thing before I utterly destroy my 7+ in frustration.


I miss my mom and brother pretty bad.  Like I have said before in this blog, it’s worse right after I see them.  Mom said she is going to try to come in February.  And then both of them are supposed to come at the end of March beginning of April for Teresa’s birthday (April 1st) and our 25th Anniversary (April 2nd).  I think if they are coming at the end of March, mom will call of her visit in February.  I will see them when I see them I guess.  All I know for absolute sure, is that I am going to be there on June 3rd (don’t have arriving and leaving dates yet) for my brother’s 50th birthday.  He only has one of those, so I have to be there for it.  And then again I will be there next November from the weekend before Thanksgiving til Thanksgiving.  Beyond that, nothing is certain as far as travel to see my family or my family coming to see me.


My mood is as weird as the weather here has been.  One minute I am deeply down and the next I am in a great mood.  I hate Ultradian cycling (ultra-rapid mood changes).  I’m not sleeping well cuz of my back (which I will get to in a minute).  That helps contribute to my weird moods.  The trip back to the Region and then coming back home could be contributing to my weird moods.  A lot of things going on could be contributing to my weird moods.  I just want to settle into a mood and stick with it for a while.


My back is really truly fubar now.  I sleep on my side.  I can only sleep for about 6 hours without pain.  I get up take a Flexeril, wait and hour and then try to go back to sleep.  Been doing this for a month or so now.  Really is a pita.  If I could sleep on my back again (haven’t been able to do such yet) I probably could sleep longer.  Anyhow, every morning I wake up in pain, and that sucks.  Then if I sit in my chair for 2 hours while the Flexeril gets a good grip, my back will hurt more because of that.  So I have taken to standing around, sometimes eating breakfast while I stand but mostly just standing around.  So, I sit for 1 hour or so, then stand for 1 hour or so, then go back to bed for a couple hours.  I don’t make any appointments in the morning cuz I am hurting too much.  It just sucks.


Dr Wehbe, my oncologist, is ordering another bone marrow biopsy.   I find out when it is tomorrow.  Then when I get those results, I will contact Mayo Clinic up in Minnesota.  They have the top rated Hematology department in the US.  So I figure I will give them a shot at figuring out why my platelets are low and fixing said issue.  Dr Wehbe has tried everything I have found online to try, so time to go to the blood experts.   Gonna suck going up there in the winter.  But I gotta get better so I can stop being afraid


Heh, I haven’t been able to get the hang of fighting multiple Urog in Middle Earth:Shadow of Mordor.  It seems that every time I get past a group for 4 or more, I run into another group of 4 or more than kicks my butt.  I suppose it just takes practice and dying a lot to get better, but dang its frustrating right now.  I suppose I have to give it more than a day and a half but still.  It’s more frustrating that Teresa kicks serious butt in her game Horizons: Zero Dawn and I am still on training wheels in mine.


D&D, Bone Marrow, and getting out of here

Heya, some of you might notice the new banner.  I replaced the Gnolls with Yuan-ti.  Yuan-ti are to be my new arch enemies in the new D&D game I will be playing in starting the week after Thanksgiving.  I am really looking forward to playing this game. Danny really is putting a lot of work into it.  My Ranger’s backstory fits in perfectly with what Danny has compiled, so it’s all good.  Can’t wait to get started.


Went to see Dr Wehbe (my cancer doc) today, platelets have stalled out at 30.  Supposed to be 150 to 450.  He has no clue as to why my platelets are so low.  He is going to order yet another bone marrow biopsy after I get back from vacation.  I really don’t think it’s leukemia again.  I don’t know what to think it is.  Just sucks having platelets so low.  Anyhow, he is all for us going to Mayo Clinic up in Minnesota and having them take a run at fixing my platelet problem.  When I mentioned Mayo Clinic, he was all for it, he is really the befuddled.


Therapy yesterday went fairly well.  We talked mostly about what is bothering me the most, which is my platelet issue.  My therapist’s husband got AML shortly after I went into remission.  So she has more of a clue as to what I am going thru than your average therapist would have.


We are leaving for the Region in a couple hours.  It’ll be good to get the heck out of here and forget my problems for a week.  OK, I won’t forget them, just won’t be sitting at home thinking about them.  Portage, specifically, has changed so much, but somehow it still feels like going home.  And getting to see mom and Jim are just bonus.


Thanksgivingfest (one word, not two like some people write it), is Saturday.  Cakes are all set to be picked up between 10:30 and 11.  The party itself will go from noon to midnight or so.  With food being served at 1 o’clock and munching happening all the rest of the time.  I know I have said it before, but I look forward to Thanksgivingfest every year.  It’s my only chance to see the Gang every year.  Now not all of the Gang show up, but enough to make it feel good to hang out with your best friends who are family.


Lunch the day after has been cancelled.  Much to the bummer.  Shawn and Andi are both going out of town.  It’s all good, it’ll give me a chance to get back to the Region at a reasonable hour.  So, I will only be in the Indy area Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday morning.  That is fine.  Gives me more time with mom and Jim in the Region.


Taking 2 laptops, maybe 3 with us.  I am taking 2 myself and I believe Teresa is taking her old work mac laptop.  She might have to work tonight after we get to the Region.  That would SUCK.  She really needs a vacation more than I do.   She works way too hard and way too much.  She needs to get away from her phone and just chill for a while.  I worry about her.

My new laptop is going so we can play WoW.  My old laptop is going so I can check Facebook and play Civ4 Warlords while Teresa plays WoW.  My old laptop will go with me down to Fishers (Indy) so I can show Cori the cook little program I use to make characters for D&D.  My old laptop still works, just takes 10-15 minutes to boot.


I guess I need to finish packing and help with all the other stuff we have to get ready to go.  Us going somewhere for a week is a big production.  Bigger than it should be, especially with Teresa taking a bunch of cooking stuff since “she is cooking Thanksgiving”.  We are gonna jam a lot into our little Dart.


Luckiest Man Alive part 2

I was up at 5am for the second time in two days for no real reason.  I haven’t been sleeping well.  I don’t know if I have another problem or if its just because I broke my fan and am not used to sleeping without a breeze blowing on my head.  Either way, I am tired, very tired, but can’t seem to sleep more than 2 or 3 hours at a shot.  Kind of annoying.


My soul has definitely been sucked back into playing World of Warcraft.  Logging in quite a few hours every day but not really doing much.  The same routine I was in before I quit.  Had a funny, cool, amazing thing happen yesterday…  A Tauren guy, which I didn’t know, comes up to me and asks me if I had 10k or more gold on Pugno, my highest level character.  I responded no, I have less than 5k actually (the truth).  He then proceeds to hand me 150,000 gold, saying he is quitting WoW and I looked needy.  I was shocked.  I quickly friended him, just in case he was coming back and wanted his money back.  But he gave me the gold, logged out, and deleted the character all in about 20seconds.  It was a weird but way cool thing for him to do.

So, I took the money and spend 50k on the Vial of the Sands which lets you turn into a dragon that can carry someone else.  And 20k on a Mammoth which has a trader and a repair guy riding on it.  The remaining 80k is being saved for I don’t know what yet.  Those 2 items I swore if I ever had the money, I would get and since I had the gold, I did it.


I’m still a little on the sick side.  Still got a bit of a cough, and my throat is still sore and my voice is all wonky because of the sore throat.   I am sure it’s going away.  But yuck , this has been well hell of a cold.  The Zpack knocked most of the nastiness away, but the aforementioned issues still exist.


My mood is all over the place.  Gotta love being bipolar and having Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).  When I am just sitting around doing much of nothing I get horribly depressed.  When I get lonely, which I do here in the house with just the dogs, I get horribly depressed.  But Teresa has this knack of being able to pull me out of the funk.  When we play games together or work on the puzzle together or just sit and talk… I feel better.  Then it cycles back down when she leaves again.  If she were ever to leave permanently (which won’t ever happen) I probably wouldn’t survive the first Fall.  Really, Teresa keeps me going thru these months.


Didn’t play D&D at all last week cuz I was still sick.  Still haven’t finished the story arc for the low level campaign, things are just hanging there.  But in the high level campaign, we stopped at a good stopping point.  It’s just I want to run the games, and my players want to play, just things keep happening to keep that for coming to fruition.  Hopefully, next week we will play again.  I have til Wednesday to get my voice back to full strength.


Thanksgivingfest is 3 weeks away.  It has been determined that I am driving down to Bruce and Cori’s.  I do not know if it will be Friday night or early Saturday morning.  That is to be determined still.  I don’t want to drive that far on my own, but gotta do what I gotta do.  Simple as that.


Teresa still hasn’t asked for the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the week between Thanksgivingfest and Thanksgiving.  She says it doesn’t matter if she asks now or 2 weeks from now.  I think she is wrong and that giving her boss the heads up in advance would be better all around.  Ah well, its Teresa’s schedule, let her handle it the way she wants I guess.


I am very much looking forward to Thanksgivingfest.  This tradition dates back like 25 years (more?)  It started after I left Ball State and before the Gang collectively graduated or didn’t graduate.  Getting as much of the Gang back together as we can every year is special and being part of the Gang, even though I was only in their lives for a semester, is pretty damn cool.  This group of people is family to me.  I’m lucky to have them as friends.

I start anticipating Thanksgivingfest in June.  (although when I used to fly there, I bought my tickets as early as February) I start asking about the invites in August, usually get them in September.  It’s a shame that there so few people who can  really  host all of us.  Bruce and Cori,  Sam and Shel, Jon, and April.  I don’t think I missed anyone.  Our house is big enough to host, but no one wants to come to Iowa to have Thanksgivingfest, I really can’t see why.


Thanksgivingfest/Thanksgiving gets me out of my funk for a week and a half our so.  So beyond having great food, being with great people, and having lots of fun.   I also get a break from the glum.  So, damn straight, I am gonna make both events.


Bobby Pickett was one weird dude.

And Panda Express for the win.

Still feeling sick, even after the second doctor I talked to gave me a Zpack.  The good news is the cough has lessened, the bad news is that it hasn’t gone away.  I still feel like crap.  However, at this point, it might be my allergies acting up cuz the wind is just howling outside and has been since yesterday.   Who knows, I might feel better tomorrow, but right now, I just feel like lying in bed and doing much of nothing.


Taking a break from every other game except WoW.  Yeah, yeah, I know, I have complained about WoW before.  But Teresa has agreed to level a character with me.  She chose a Drenai Marksman Hunter, I gave her choices a Dwarven Fury Warrior, a Human Demonology Warlock, an Elven Arms Warrior, a Gnome Frost Wizard, and finally after several tries not to overlevel one, I got a Worgen Feral Druid, all of which are level 15.  Now, I happen to love the lower levels and could make characters from 1 to 20 over and over and be happy.  So making all these for her to choose from was fun.  Tonight, maybe, we will actually run some dungeons together.  That would be fun.


Thanksgivingfest is coming up quickly.  I still, at this point, do not know how I am getting down to Bruce and Cori’s.  Need to decide that sooner as opposed to later.  If I am gonna fly, I need to book that now before the prices go up too ridiculously.  I hope I don’t have to drive but I am pretty sure that is what Teresa is expecting me to do.  UGH.  Driving 3+ hours with my back is gonna hurt.  Oh well, if I have to drive, I have to drive.  Anyway it takes to get down there.  It’s all good.


Teresa has a problem, she doesn’t think she is gonna be able to get the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday between Thanksgivingfest and Thanksgiving off.  That causes problems for both of us, heck everyone who is expecting us at Thanksgiving.  If we have to come back Sunday after Thanksgivingfest and skip Thanksgiving with my family, it has to be.  I just who it doesn’t have to be.


Pucky snuck out the hallway garage door while I was occupied.  He got caught in the garage.  He almost missed food in the bedroom, something he never misses.  Teresa noticed him missing as she put away groceries.  I thought he was just camped out on the couch.  When Teresa opened the door, Pucky ran in like he was on fire.  Just because he was shut away from us for 10ish minutes.  Good thing it wasn’t Mojo, Mojo would have totally freaked out, but then again we would have heard him out there whereas Pucky was silent.


My brother bought me a pistol about a year ago, I bought 1100 rounds of ammo thinking I’d really get into shooting.  Problem is, I know you have to clean your guns after you shoot them and I don’t have a fricking clue how to clean a gun.  We set out to teach me in June, but it was just too damn hot when I was there.  So we didn’t go shooting then, so no guns to clean.  Come November, depending on the weather, we might go shooting while Teresa and I are there.  But for some reason, I am expecting it to be entirely too cold.  Not having a way to regulate my internal body temperature sucks.  When I start to get hot, I get too hot, when I start to get cold, I get too cold.  Bah, I just want to learn to shoot and clean my gun.


It’ll be good to see my mom and Jim again.  Yeah, I saw mom a month or so ago, but I haven’t seen my brother since June.  I wish I could see my brother more often.  But he is on some mission to make money.  It’s all good, if I could work and had the company say I could work all the overtime I wanted and encouraged me to do just that, I would so take advantage of that.  So, I get to see my brother when I get to see my brother.  Maybe he will not work a couple nights we are there and I will get to see my brother a little more, which would be a good thing.


Teresa brought me Panda Express for dinner.  Now, those of you who live near a Panda Express are going “SO”, well we don’t really.  It’s a good 20 minutes out of the way on Teresa’s way home from work and a good 20-30 minutes from here.  However, it’s just across the street from Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart started doing the pull up grocery shopping thing.  So, when she went to Wal-Mart to pick up groceries, she snagged us some Orange Chicken and Beef with Broccoli from Panda Express.  Yup, for me it’s a win.  Funny thing was she suggested it before I was gonna ask for it today.  It was meant to be today.


 

Yet another blog post

A moment of seriousness.  A very good friend of my mom’s passed away in August and her husband didn’t think to tell my mom until my mom sent her friend a card saying what’s up.  That is sad.  My mom and her friend had been friends for 50 years or so, you’d think someone would call her.  Rest in peace, Jackie, may you have been right and you are in heaven.

My friend’s wife passed away a week or so ago.  I hadn’t actually spoken to my friend in a long while, but this one hit me kinda hard.  Jason basically saved me a couple times while I lived in Ridgecrest, and it sucks that I haven’t been a good friend to him now that we have reconnected via Facebook.  Jason is like 8 years older than me, his wife was 20ish years younger than Jason.  Died resting on his shoulder in her sleep.  I don’t know many details (or any details as the case is) but I know that has to be really hard to wake up to your loved one on your shoulder cold.  Jason, I don’t know if you read this blog ever, but you can find my number in my profile and call me, I am here for you man.  I hope Mary is in a better place too.


Now on to the regular scheduled show….

I am on Day 5 of being sick.  I feel ok as long as I don’t cough.  Unfortunately, I am coughing quite a bit, especially in the morning (read that as starting at  4am) and the late evening.  During the day, if I am up and moving around I am mostly ok.  I do not think I am gonna be well by Saturday 😦  Not going to be able to go to Light the Night or definitely not be able to help out.  I am bummed about that.


I’m about to start learning CSS, you know the style sheet thing that goes with html on websites.  I have always wanted to learn since CSS came out, but never had a need or was willing to dedicate the time.  Now, my project that I am still not going to talk about needs a website.  Don’t have enough money to pay someone to do the website, so I am gonna do it.  After CSS, I will learn JavaScript.  Then I will be able to rock a website, then maybe I will be ready to share information about what I am doing.


Lou Malnatti’s Pizza is on the menu for dinner tonight again.  We order them frozen from http://www.tasteofchicago.com .  Good stuff.  Better than any pizza we can get fresh here. Well, to be fair, there is a couple pizza places a half hour or so away that are pretty good.  But I still think I like Lou Malnatti’s pizzas better.


I still haven’t played any games over the last few days.  Just not in the mood.  Guess I got other things on my mind.  My project and the website and learning CSS and JavaScript.  Other things.


Teresa is feeling a whole lot better, but she got antibiotics to move her along.  Kinda sucks for me to see her feeling so good while I am still so sick.  And I got 5 more days to go.  But I am happy for her, she was miserable for enough days, she needs to be healthy so she can go to work, so she can take off the days between Thanksgivingfest and Thanksgiving proper.  If they will even give her those days off, that is uncertain at this time too.


I may get booed by some of my friends for this.  But it looks like the Cubs are gonna be out of the playoffs.  Kinda feel bad for their fans, but from what I understand the Dodgers are just rockin right now and the Cubs aren’t.  Hey, it happens.  Now, I would love for the Cubs to go win the next 3 games, but lets be realistic.


Tomorrow’s D&D game might have to be put off a week.  I have a definite cough at the end of every sentence I speak.  I don’t want to cough into my microphone and blow everybody’s ears.  Besides, I am not much on sitting up either right now, get light headed.


Cori said that the music I have been posting with these blog posts “Sucks”.  I happen to like punk.  But today I will go out and find something more appealing to the masses
