So I saw this meme about why no one feels like talking right now and it pretty much sums it up...
Basically (and paraphrasing) it said that no one wants to talk right now. Replies are brief and late. Group chats don't really happen anymore. It's because we're all spent and have nothing left to say. You can only say "I miss you" and "I can't wait to see you again" so many times. And let's face it, we're all doing the same thing we were doing about a year ago. It also said that we're not supposed to apologize, because we're all feeling and doing the same thing.
I feel that so hard!
I have started a blog post four times in the last few days, but then I become apathetic and feel like I have nothing to say. And I really don't. What I have to say is basically nonsense.
We're going to a funeral tomorrow. I don't know what it's going to be like with social distancing and all. But we feel like we need to go and pay our respects. Ben was a very dear friend to us. We haven't seen him in a few years, but he was one of those guys who didn't care about that. He was always happy to see you and talk your ear off. He was one of the most non-judgmental and funny people I have ever known.
We moved up to his neck of the woods many, many years ago. His son was That Man's best friend. We moved up there based on his son's urging and knowledge of cheap land for sale. We had a lot (a lot) of good times while we lived there. They took us in and treated us like family.
We eventually moved back down the mountain. Martin (the son) was killed in a tragic tractor accident shortly after my mom died. It was rough. We still made the trip to visit as often as we could. But it's been a while since we've been there.
We don't know what to expect. We just know we have to be there.
So we both have a shorter work day tomorrow. That Man is working from home because it doesn't make sense for him to drive into the office for an hour and then drive home so we can leave on time.
Saturday is helping K3 and A get their stuff out of their apartment and into their storage unit. They've been here with us since Sunday and going over every night and doing as much as they can to make Saturday easier and quicker.
To clarify, I am just a truck driver. We are borrowing trucks from work and only employees can drive them. So I am just there to drive the truck. I am not lifting, cleaning, or doing anything but sitting behind the wheel. Ha! I am too old for that crap!
Other than that... Same old. Same old.
I am writing. I am working the day job. I have been loving the snow, but equally loving the sunshine and warmer temps. (I know. You just can't please me... Ha!)
Also, I have been doing taxes. State and Local are filed. Just not paid. Federal is 99% done, but I need to double check it. And then pay them. Yeah, it sucks that we owe everyone this year. But that's normal. Ugh. I hate it, but I'm glad to be almost done and know what the damage is. Next up is helping K4 with hers. Which should be easy.
And that is all...
