I hate these posts.
You know the ones, "Sorry I haven't posted in a month but I have been busy doing this, this, and this (aka, Real Life Happens)" posts.
Most of the time people don't care.
Probably, they just didn't even notice your absence.
Between work and Firefighter training, I've had very little free time.
When I did have some, it was usually divided between my wife & kids, or taking care of stuff after my mom died.
I can NOT believe all the SHIT you have to do after someone dies.
Cleaning out their house, getting rid of stuff, notifying banks and insurance and creditors, turning off utilities, picking out headstones, forwarding mail, filing paperwork at courthouses & DMVs.
Stuff you never even think about.
Thank God mom had insurance to cover her burial. But even THAT has been a nightmare to deal with. Numerous phone calls and emails and overnight paperwork shipping. Ugh!
Honestly, after all that....I've had a hard time finding my funny again.
Lately, I've been listening to lots of standup. I guess trying to get it back.
For awhile, I considered just giving up on writing anymore blog posts or standup of my own.
It just seemed unimportant.
My online activity has been limited to reading a few blogs, posting some funny pics on Facebook, and watching movies in the evening.
I think I am finally starting to turn the corner though. I have been thinking a lot lately, and some of it's funny.
Or I'll think, "That would make great standup material" or "That would be good for a blog post."
So, who knows....I might be making a comeback.
