Today's Work: I finished the last document before the big one... for the moment. It was rather delayed by all the stuff I had to do last week, but it's done now. The only problem remaining is that I hate the template for the big document, and I think it's stupid. Some of the sections are redundant, but I don't think I can just replace them with a forward link to the appendix where the same data can be found.
I've got to congratulate Mom on her new job. Two months ago or so, she sold her house in New Jersey and basically threw away most of her old life (except for most of her possessions) to move to Indiana and live off the profit from the sale until she could find a new house and a job, neither particularly certain in the current economic climate. I don't think I'd have the guts to do that. Bidding grand slam when I might be missing the king of hearts is easy enough - if things don't work out, I get -50 instead of +620. The penalty for not taking the risk if it would have worked is that I get +640 instead of +1140, still a pretty big bonus. But I took that risk. Sometimes, if you're willing to leap without really looking, things can work out really well. And they were both calculated risks. I think Mom figured on a few years before her financial situation got bad, because Indiana's pretty cheap compared to New Jersey. And the new job is basically the old job, but probably with all of the bad parts replaced with good parts. So well done, and enjoy the new job.
Finally reached the point in FFXIII where I can do specific missions and get rewards for them. So it's finally turned into something like FFXII, including having to avoid enemies that I can't possibly defeat. (And believe me, I've tried every strategy available. Maybe extreme Thunder protection would help, but meh. I probably don't have time to play it tonight anyway.
