What a crap week.

Let's just say that now we'll have to depend on the checks and balances built into the Constitution and leave it at that.

The night prior to the election, my beloved and I went to see the movie Dr. Strange and liked it very much. I look forward to seeing more of the wizard in the future.

In addition, the last night or two, we watched Kung Fu Panda 2 on Netflix disc, and 3 via Netflix streaming. I had arranged for these to be available along with another animation item for last weekend's visit by sekl and her boys, but it turned out that the kids had long since seen them. I enjoyed the first of the series, the second less so and the third put me to sleep, so what can you say? Overall, I find that the Dreamworks animated films are generally silly, and don't pull my heartstrings the way that Pixar films do. Fun, but I don't see them being movies that I'd want to watch repeatedly.

Now for the meat of the week, and the thing that's really messing up my mind: my mother. I took the day off yesterday to meet up with my sisters at Mom's house. She lives in a very large house all by herself, and frankly it's become overwhelming for her the last few months. My youngest sister, Andi, lives closest to her, and is most aware of how things have been going lately and she felt that the time had come for Mom to simplify her life and sell the house, moving into a senior apartment complex where they take care of most of her needs. So all four of us toured the facility for several hours yesterday and Mom admitted that the time is here. She put a down payment on an apartment there, but we're still looking at the options. I know that us three kids will feel better with her in a safer more secure environment, but it's bittersweet. She's been in that house for 46 years; we moved into it when I entered high school and there's a lot of memories there. Tough call.

Dungeonmaster tomorrow. We want to see you there!
