I just posted the Week 3 picks.

My sister is having surgery tomorrow, so my next few days off will be devoted to that. We are leaving way early in the morning to get her checked in, so they will all be in bed when I get home tonight, which means I can't access my computer to post results after tonight's game (one of them sleeps in the living room where my computer is). But at least I have next week's picks up, just in case it's a few days before I can get to the computer again.

So has anyone been reading my posts about merging with TVCH? I really need an answer/comment please.

Re: NFL Football Pool Game XI

If I come off harsh in this post, please accept my apology in advance. I’m going to summarize everything I’ve been going through to hopefully help you understand.

I’ve tried to tell you both how much I’ve had going on in my life in the last two years. It started after my 11+ years of care giving ended with the death of my mom in October 2013.

The following year was full of threats of losing my home I shared with my mom. The realization that I could not save it once I experienced how absolutely no company would hire me cause I hadn’t “worked” in 11 years. Months and months of stressful packing of 28 years worth of stuff, trying to disposition cherished memories of my mom I had no use for or room for. And then the eventual sale of my home in Sept. 2014. So I moved in with my sister. Several applications to buy a trailer together (then by myself), followed by refusals for a variety of reasons. Homelessness looming over our heads for all this time.

My sister was also going through a lot of stress and stuff, that would lead to her house now going into foreclosure, and us all (me, her, her two kids, 2 dogs and 3 cats) having to find a place to live. Included with all this stress, some hip problems that lead to three surgeries on her right hip before she finally found a doctor to do it right. That surgery was three months ago. With that success, and some time to recover from that surgery, she had the same surgery on her left hip last Tuesday. It went very well. She came home on Wednesday, and the future looked bright to finally get her on a path of health and wellness. Thursday night, we tucked her into bed as usual. Her daughter checked on her at 3AM and she was sleeping well. Re-check at 7AM and she was gone. She was only 46.

My sister was my best friend. She shared my love of drum corps with me. She’s left a huge empty hole in my heart. And really, the stuff I’ve summarized above is just the tip of the iceberg. I am at the end of my rope.

Because of everything on my plate, earlier this season, I invited you both to come over to TVCH to play this game, which would make things so much easier for me, especially with only two of you in the game this year. It just makes so much more sense to do it all in one place. And more fun to have more people to play with.

Even before this last tragedy hit us, I will have to say I was pretty disappointed that both of you read my PM’s (I tracked them to see if they were being opened), and neither of you bothered to respond to my invitation. Even if you had said, “no thank you, I’d rather stay here.” I would have understood that. But instead, you both just kept posting your picks and refused to answer my questions. Honestly, that kinda made me feel like I was being held hostage here, by forcing me to post the game with so few players. Especially when I was receiving such great feedback/support from the 4 remaining players at WOP, who have already transitioned their game over to TVCH.

As I’ve said, I’m at the end of my rope. I have so very little time to devote to running the game on three separate boards. And now with funeral planning, working, and still trying to find a place to live, I will not be posting a Game Open Announcement here for Week 4 or later. If you guys want to continue playing the game, you can join TVCH (I promise, it won’t hurt a bit), and play there. They were already waiting to welcome you with open arms, as they have already welcomed the folks from WOP.

To join, go to this page and click on the “join” link at the top: http://www.tvclubhouse.com/cgi-bin/foru ... ?pg=topics
You will not be able to access the various folders of the board until you are a member.

After joining, you can go to this link, which is the main page of our game, and some self-explanatory folders/threads: http://www.tvclubhouse.com/forum/read.p ... 1443587726

I really hope to see you there. If not, hopefully my life will not be in so much turmoil next year, and I can start the game fresh here once more.

I will post this week’s results as soon as I can.
