Sorry for the delays and inconsistencies in posting. After last weekend spent back home in Pennsylvania at my dad’s funeral, I wasn’t really in the mood to write anything this week. And it’s been difficult leading up to this for a while now.
A few notes about that trip, though. My older brother and I shared a hotel room for four days, so we talked a lot. We may have a better understanding of one another now than we ever did growing up.
Better? Yeah. Perfect? Hells no.
For the record: yes, I broke up at the service. Hard. This was immeasurably more difficult than I thought it would be.
That’s enough about that.
Our extended family was incredible. We wanted for nothing in terms of company (or food, given we’re a good, Italian family), and, as far as funerals go, we were very happy (?) with the treatment we received from the funeral home.
The trip to and from PA, however, left a bit to be desired. Air travel plus weather, is all I’m saying.
But now that life has returned to some semblance of “normal” from where it’s been over the last little while, I should get back to posting here more regularly.
