This is just a public service announcement/placeholder post to let you know I’m here! and alive! And I have bajillions of stories to share with you all, but not nearly enough time to type them out. So, give me a few days. Also, I’m sorry for being such a bastid about never replying to the comments you all leave on this weblog; please know that I do appreciate every single one of them. Thank you for being such rockstars, and putting up with me.
In case you’re interested, this was my itinerary for last Saturday alone:
– Memorial service
– Baby shower
– Wedding reception
And then, on Sunday, I tried to finish up a project for a work deadline, but didn’t make much progress. Two days later, I’m still in limbo and not going anywhere with that, and all I really want to do is crawl beneath my desk and sleep for several days. Meanwhile, the world is falling apart – as always, and in so many, innumerable ways – and this is my wish for you: That you may never have to attend a memorial service with your little brother, and watch him watch his 22-year-old friend in a coffin. Parents should never have to see their children in coffins, either.
But still, the glorious mundanity continues. This GMail IM from my sister made me laugh yesterday:
I was walking behind this dude who had the price tag still flapping out behind his shorts and it made me think of you
Here’s hoping you’re finding things to laugh about, too.
