Master Post

Not much happened this week.  The new lawyer was unable to find out who at East Chickasaw DHS was supposed to be overseeing our case, and finally just sent a letter to their office.  We gathered up the girls' homeschool registration forms for her (the only paperwork required by homeschoolers in Mississippi.  The rest of the stuff they asked for is not required.)

I'm supposed to have a psych evaluation next week that should satisfy any legitimate concerns they have on that regard.  Isn't that the cherry on top of a mountain of stress?

And on top of all that we're still househunting, which ordinarily would be a job all by itself.  There's a lot more I can post about that (yeesh!) but my time is limited.  More after we get something nailed down.  Plenty of running around thanks to that next week.

I have no video editing capablilities right now.  Is there somewhere I can post a thirty minute video for viewing?  Youtube cuts off at 15 minutes.

We're going to be spending Thanksgiving living out of suitcases.  Oh, joy.  I only hope something gets resolved before Christmas.

To those who think I'm doing this for attention, I'm really not that kind of person.  Given a choice, I'd really rather be sitting back, chatting about fandom, and reading fanfic as opposed to dealing with all this.  You have no idea how much I wish I could even care about fandom right now.

Dailymotion (YouTube's biggest rival) allows the uploading of videos of unlimited length, if you join their MotionMaker scheme. It seems to be free.

Thanks! Will look into that when I have more online time.

No, no. If you were doing this for the attention, you'd be posting and commenting all the time, not giving us these intermittent (and extremely welcome) updates.

And screw those people who think you're doing this for attention. They should be so lucky. Hope everything works out for you all soon, and that the whackadoodles making your life so miserable get what's coming to them.

While having some suspicion on the internet IS a healthy thing, I think writing anything and everything off as a hoax or attention-whoring is a mistake.

So far, you've done several things a scammer/attention-whore would likely NOT do:

1. Giving out detailed information, which is easily verified by something as simple as googling.

2. Requesting that newspapers and authorities be contacted on your behalf -- bringing the authorities in is generally NOT what someone doing something purely for attention would do unless they're TRULY sick.

3. As someone else pointed out, you vanish for long periods of time. Someone looking for attention isn't going to disappear for days or weeks on end, when they're clearly going to get more attention by constantly posting.

4. You've pretty much vanished from fandom. This is literally the only things I see you post, and the only engagement you do anymore.

5. You haven't asked for ANYTHING, with the exception of advice and information.

Hence, it seems very unlikely that you are making this up/doing it for attention. It just doesn't fit the standard behaviors and patterns you see from Munchausen (by Internet) syndrome or other such disorders.

God I'm so looking forward to sinking into fandom, but right now I couldn't care less about it.

Just take care of you and your family. Fandom will still be there when things are settled. ♥
