Apparently..... I AM A Robot!!!

Because I am failing Blogger's new word verification test...over and over and over and over.

This is the week we have been moving my 96 year old MIL into a small care home near where we live instead of two towns over..... as well as completely emptying the house she has lived in for the last 17 years and between the stress of both of those, my brain is already fried.

Trying to decipher twisted gibberish with eyes that are swollen shut from empathic sadness of her losses, as well as no sleep, inter-family conflicts, and too much hard work, has made this a daunting test for me!

If you have it on your blog, consider removing it as I have and taking our chances with a bit of spam. (Dashboard, Settings, Comments, Word Verification). I'm having to decrease my commenting if it fails to publish after three attempts...that's my personal limit.

If too much spam does come in, then write Blogger and ask for something better and easier. I notice some bloggers have simple math questions. Well, I had to use my fingers for 9+3. Apparently, my sleep deprivation has pushed me over the edge and I have less of a grasp on brain function than I was imagining ;)

Unfortunately, we still have to take all of the verification tests in order to publish posts and I have to do it twice, once as a dot com and once as blogspot dot com in order to enable search engine tracking.

Help me! Please consider buying my little art quilt and donate to Alzheimer's research...for my future as well as your own. I really, really want to 'Come and Play' instead of all of the rest of these challenges ;)

Yep, I am failing the tests. So, apparently I AM a robot.
