  • Still no income from my company

Best of 2012:
  • Discovered my retirement fund is 50% bigger than I thought. (Still not enough to retire on.)
  • Inherited a little money from my mother
  • Still alive

Well, fuck, 2012 just gets worse.

My cousin Joby just e-mailed that our Uncle Bob died this morning.

Sorry to hear about it, Chas. This year has truly been a bad one. Can't wait for it to be over. (And welcome the new, even worse one.)

RE: 2012: The Year In Review
Sorry Chas...you seem to be having a twelve-month span like I did in 2009...my aunt died unexpectedly, just a few weeks later my dad died, then my cancer diagnosis....keeerapp...too much in such a short time. Luckily while home recovering from surgery, I had a long, long phone converstation with my last surviving grandparent not knowing that she would be gone in just a couple months. Also had a long talk, just like the old days, with a really good friend who died about the same time as grandma did.

I reached the point where I didn't want to answer the damn phone any more.


Hugs to you and your family and may the losses stop now.

See here they are, the bruises, some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Chas, it's nonea' my business, but if you're not already utilizing some sort of group or individual bereavement services, you can probably participate in such with your local hospice agency at no cost....

If and when you're ready, of course.
