I don’t even know. It’s been forever since I posted. If it wasn’t for my Twitter updates, this blog wouldn’t have anything since mid-May. Part of it was depression. My dad passed away 3 years ago Memorial Day weekend. And this year the actual anniversary day happened to fall right on Memorial Day. Yep, May 26th. There are not even words to describe how much I still miss him.
August 20, 1947 – May 26, 2005
I’ve realized that when people say it gets easier, they are lying. It doesn’t get easier. What happens is that you think about it less. You force yourself to think about it less. But when you do allow yourself to think about it…
So then right on the heels of Memorial Day is Father’s Day. I realized that was my problem. I was depressed from Memorial Day right through Father’s Day. I hate the commercials bombarding me everywhere. It’s on TV. It’s in email. It’s on more than half of the websites. It’s on the radio. It’s in the regular mail. You can’t get away from it. Every ad, every commercial, it makes me cry. Sometimes a tear or two, sometimes like a baby. It sucks. I keep hoping some day it will get better, or at least I can manage it better. It’s not good for my emotional health and it definitely wasn’t good for my financial health to be basically be out of touch for more than two weeks.
I’ve been doing pretty good since Father’s Day ended, but I spent a good bit of my time catching up. I’ve come to post a couple times, but for some reason I can’t think of anything to say. I’m kind of at a crossroads in my online life. I’m not sure where to go now. I’ve got all these ideas, but not much time or organization to go forward with it. It’s time though.
In the coming weeks and months, watch for this blog to move to a new domain. I’ll be working on getting Single WAHM going as the support site it was intended to be. I’ll also be getting ready to relaunch Single Moms Talk Radio. I have somebody working on the template for me. Hopefully, she can get it to do what i want it to do. If not, I’ll find a new template and get that up and running again soon.
