Best day ever…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Friday, September 21, 2007 at 12:26 am by flerly.

So, the internet portion of our Comcast “total package” decided to bomb today at about 3:30, and is only now coming back up. The phone continues to cut out at random, too, so we’re THRILLED with our service. Whooo Comcast.

And, apparently, my estranged, restranged, just strange brother is once again, this time abruptly and consciously choosing, to be estranged again. Moreover, he seems to be trying to extend this estrangement to include no contact with his daughter, but she’s smart as a whip, 17, and we’ll damn well see how THAT works out. We, in fact, talked to her on the phone just tonight … which is both wonderful and just makes me sick with sadness over the whole situation. Damnit, she’s family even if he chooses not to be.

JT is depressed that it’s turning to fall, but as an October birthday kid I guess I’ve always just loved fall, probably because it used to mean presents were soon! Presents or not, I love this weather. We sat out on the back porch tonight in the darkness (such as it is near Atlanta), with the cool breeze blowing through all the trees, and it was just peaceful.

This weekend should be good for gaming, but next weekend — the 29th — we can’t do it. I will be out of town, maybe James, too, pending his work. I’m due for a much belated visit to check on mom, meet up with Sis & Bro & the frewtnut great niece there, and hopefully arrange a clandestine meeting with the so-called estranged niece with or without her dad. Mom, it seems, has for the past several days been nearly incapacitated by what the doctor says is either a spider bite or some kind of parasite infection that has caused her entire left foot to swell up and get very red and sore. She has had to hop around on one leg to get around the house, as, she says, it hurts too much to put any weight on it. Yet… she waits four days to go to the doctor. Yeah… past time to check on her in person. She is also pretty torn up about my brother deciding to be estranged again.

Oh well. It is late, and thanks to Comcast I’m already behind on work for tomorrow.

    Yay for fallsome weather! Not so yay about the brother. Why must there be one in every family? I think we can postpone gaming for sake of family. And yes, this weekend should be good for gaming! Esp, since we can have meat!
