My oldest adoptive kiddo just admitted he's been hiding his heavy drinking and recent divorce. We've invited him to a movie tomorrow and are considering either Shazam! or Hellboy. Is either of those likely to trigger him on the loss of his wife or habit of hiding in a bottle?

I'm trying to start a bullet journal. Is it just a bunch of hype? Or will it be helpful?

My husband replaced the fluorescent bulbs in the kitchen. All four of them. I need SP50 while cooking now.

Snapped awake when the dogs picked at fight at 4:20am. I'm going to twitch like a stoner all day now.

If you think you've invented something as an author, you're not well-read enough. The unique thing you bring to the table is your voice, your lens -- all the "stuff" has been done already. Accept that, lean into it, and you'll embarrass yourself much less often.

Last night I learned a little more about DM'ing and running a good session. I need to keep better notes - "last time when we played" needs to be a more thorough story. Our poor Dwarf Cleric has been playing at level 4 (I thought he was pulling punches) because he forgot to complete his level up 5 sessions ago. *facepalm*

I dropped my Kindle into the dog water on Friday morning. I got it out and turned off immediately and it's been sitting around turned off since then. I really want to try to turn it on now. Dare I?

My silly brain is all flappy this morning.

Crackers and squirty cheese. My inner tweenager wanted a snack.

Good morning y'all. Didn't get enough sleep last night. Dogs woke me up at 3am when my son left for groceries. And he woke me up at 445 when he got home -forgot his house key. Narf! His sheepish look when I let him made it hard to be mad at him though. Bring on the coffee!

Valerian, melatonin and passionflower last night. Finally slept past 4am. Because it wasn't so bad before the time change to wake up before 3am and fall back asleep for another 2 hours, but post time change? UGH. I'd just get to sleep again and ugh ugh ugh, the alarm would go off.

The April Fool's joke with the mount in Neverwinter is cracking me up.

I dreamed of my dragon librarian all night. Yeesh. Get out of my head!

Also, I am rather amused. During our session I was rolling the same dice for two NPCs & three monsters. One of the NPCs had terrible roles. Consistently. Same dice with varied results good & bad for everything else had continual 2s, 5s and twice a Nat1. Poor dude couldn't catch a break. Then, the only time we wanted a low result? Nat20. *face palm*

Near TPK experience tonight - I am one worn out DM.

Girl child had a more "friend" drama again this weekend. She is so done with high school. Our little community is a great place for raising kids, but the last year or so in high school suffocates. 5 more months. 5 more months. 5 more months.... I'm going to miss her so much when she's off to college in the fall, but I can feel her need to move on.

Been working on saying this for a while but I can't seem to get the words right. Still aren't but I need to say it. I know I'm preaching to the choir here but be nice to each other y'all. That guy who had an amazing career as a drummer, and such a beautiful family, the one who I harbored a spark of envy toward... he battled demons every day and I had no clue until his life was taken. And now I'm wondering if I was nice enough to him in all of our interactions.

I have discovered Death Note the musical. It is beautiful. I am obsessed.
