This Was Not A Vacation

Hi.  How ya doing?  Me, I’m just over here hiding in case you want to throw things at me.

Yes, I know,  I’ve been gone a large portion of the last couple of months.  And yes, I was pretty much just plain ole gone last month.  I actually have a really good reason for that.

See, my father passed away.

We laid him to rest this past weekend.  It was a wonderful military service and the small enclave was packed full of people who loved my dad.

My cousin did the memorial and it was amazing.  We laughed until we cried.  Then we cried some more.  And then laughed some more.  Just like dad would have wanted.

And now I find myself entering the real world again.  I had spent the last month in Florida or Tenessee, but now I am home.  I had this buffer of family and friends in both places and they filled my time with joy and laughter.  I honestly don’t think I could ever tell them how much that meant to me.

So while I have always tried to keep my posts light and fun, and I still will, I might be working through a few of my emotions here on my little corner of the internet.

The next post is a sad one too.

I have issues.  And tissues.

I probably should have purchased some stock in the Kleenex company.  They certainly have gotten enough of my money lately.
