Sorry everyone - I've been posting pretty much everything over on G+.  (onyoukai, didn't you say you were on G+ somewhere?)  I don't know if the links embedded below will work if you're not in the appropriate circles - feel free to try though.

Life's been - surprise! - mostly dealing with the aftermath of my father's death.

There was signing the form promising that my dad wouldn't explode when they cremated him.

There was the exhausting process of trying to go through as much stuff in the house as my brother and I could over the course of a week, and shipping stuff, and meeting with people.  I found a bunch of neat things in the process of cleaning out, and documented a small number of them in various posts.

There was the business with the cemetery when I thought we might not be able to bury my parents in the plot they wanted (since resolved).

There was ordering a headstone.

There was finding out you can get urns from walmart online, but that's not where I bought the one that arrived at the funeral home today.

There was tracking down as many people as I possibly could in my father's addressbook to notify and invite them to the memorial.  (Still not quite done; there are folks I emailed who haven't responded, notably some near-ish cousins.)

There's still stuff.  I need to change the burial time to a little later in the afternoon so that there's time to eat and hang out after the service.  I need to get a proposal from the caterer for lunch that day.  I need to send a bunch of checks to the church for the service.  I need to finish putting together the playlist for during the reception.  And I need to write my four minutes' worth of eulogy.

I have to remind myself it'll all be okay.  I'll get it all done.  And I'll be okay.

Really.

(And I'll be better about cross-posting!)
