Excusing myself from raiding
As Lib pointed out to me a bit ago, tonight's the third time I've failed to show up for a raid I'd signed up for. Although the other two times I had something come up last minute, tonight I just flat-out forgot. My job has me working seven days a week at various hours. It's summer so the kids are home all day long. I am fucking tired, lol.
So although my intent was to try and help with raid leading, it's just not happening. I have too much going on IRL to raid at the times our raids are scheduled. The time I do have to play any kind of game tends to be late at night, and that doesn't work out when raids are at 6pm my time. Especially when most days I am not even done with work until after 6pm.
I'm going to remove myself from the rest of the raiding schedule until MoP. If that seems flaky or if anyone's disappointed, so be it. As much as I want to help out, right now life just isn't working out so that I can.
In case I don't get a chance to log in and remove my self from the in-game calendar, I'm posting it here so people are forewarned. I think the group that is raiding has things well under control that I don't need to be there anyway, so I think you all should continue to focus on heroic progression and running alts/mains the rest of the week. As we get closer to MoP's release, we'll put together a raiding plan for the expansion so we can get off to a good start.
Sorry guys and thanks for understanding. :-/
