A statement

Postby PentacleGoddess » Thu Oct 26, 2017 5:41 pm

To the members of this board regarding the lax nature of my own moderation lately; normally we play it pretty loose here, try not to get too heavy handed, and in large part I think that's to the benefit of the board. But of late it's been clearly been too lax,and due to RL issues I haven't been as attentive as perhaps I should have been. I can't promise that's going to totally turn around anytime soon, as at least some portion of these RL issues are going to persist for some time, but I'm going to try.

What's an "RL issue"? Sorry, I don't mean to be insensitive but I am still very new to all of this.

Thanks.

"RL" = "Real Life"

In my case specifically, dealing with new house and expenses and getting ready for surgery and kind of freaking out about the surgeon up at the University of Michigan so exploring Chicago options but worried about what kind of support structure I could have there for recovery.

Oh, and just finished digging and then refilling a 24 foot long trench to extend one of our drainpipes out away from our house today. Ugh.

Ban them from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Burn them? Burn them all, you say? What a lovely idea, I DO so enjoy a good bonfire.

I thought RL meant Rude Language. I'd help if I could. If you did decide on Chicago i could pick you up if you took the ferry across Lake Michi and go with you and back in the train there and be welcome to stay in my dilapidated flat in MKE.

Haha, I use plenty enough rude language without having to come up with an acronym for it :lol: I appreciate the offer; it looks increasingly likely that I am going to go with Schechter in Chicago; his staff seems way more on the ball, they seem way more invested in having me as a patient than UofM does, he had pictures ready to show me at my consult and had answers for all my questions before I even asked them. Assuming insurance works out, it's likely where I'm going to end up at. But it won't be until at least some time after March so I can use FMLA at work, because to hell with taking a month and a half off without pay, lol.
