I know it's only been a week since I lost Earl but it seems I'm feeling more down with each day. As I realize I can't just pick up the phone to talk to him, or drive to Astoria to visit, the impact of his being gone is numbing. Little by little I've been going through his files, and personal stuff. Deciding what needs to be kept, what I should send his son, what I can throw away. That doesn't help.
My family have done their darnedest to keep me occupied. We had a family barbecue one day, and two birthdays this week. I've been roped into going to the Titanic Museum with them tomorrow, and then dinner.
During this past week i've been applying for jobs, too. Though just half-heartedly. Not really ready to go back to work, but it's a requirement for collecting unemployment, something I've never done before. I had an interview for a work at home job today. Sounds interesting. I wonder if you can really earn money that way. Anyone here ever tried?
