I begin by apologizing. Pursuant to my policy of being more circumspect in my journal I have been posting my entries "friends only." To those of you who have not a LiveJournal account it must seem that my posting has dropped away to nothing. I will vary my posts more and include things that are not "friends only." Alternatively, if you want to get an LJ account (it's free) you can get in on all the goodies. If you need a code, contact me at mailto:louderback.livejournal.com and I'll be glad to provide one if I can.Recap:
A second week without my mother at home. She has already begun calling and "threatening" to come home. She runs the gamut from insisting that she'll come when she is in the mood to begging permission to come home. I don't know what the deal is. I just don't understand the situation at all
I had guests in last weekend. I made a big pot of spaghetti and fed 11 D&D players. It was a good day, but exhausting. I was glad to do it and glad when it was over.
I learned at work that the testing team that I will be a part of rolls out in early to mid-December. I hope that I can do something useful between now and then. It's not too long.
The week was quiet. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out just what was going on with my mother. She moved out abruptly, ostensibly for a visit with her cousin. She has called every day to assure us she is doing "so much better here" than at home. She also takes time to stir the pot. It now seems I "threw her out" by calling her cousin. My sister is a villainess as well, it seems. *sigh*
Apart from that, things have gone reasonably. I went out Saturday with my son and his fianceé . We visited a friend of theirs and I sat in on the first D&D game I've been involved in in 20 years. I have to say I enjoyed it and may actually become a regular. I actually get considerably more pleasure out of running a campaign than I do playing, however.
Work is just work. I am very ineffective there with only a screen reader. The screens I have to read are abominably difficult with only JAWS. I really need a magnifier.
