Blog?  What Blog? 

Well, it appears that I've been severely lacking in my blogging as of late.  There are a couple of reasons for that, I suppose.

1.  Life is all-consuming.
2.  The thrill is gone.  With the departure of the vast majority of my small circle of friends and blogger buddies, there isn't that interaction there once used to be.  Looking back at 2005-2007 or so, there was quite a lot of activity here and on my friends' blogs.
3.  Oh...and then there's Facebook. So three reasons then.  FB has allowed me to reconnect and keep in touch with friends I've known for 30+ years, family, coworkers, and the like. 

And things just haven't been super-interesting lately.  I've reconnected and rekindled my relationship with my sister.  That's good news.  She left her loser husband a few months ago and I've been helping her financially and with moral support.  I went out to visit her a couple of weeks ago and had a great couple of days. 

My kids are doing well, though they're pretty much incommunicado with their own lives and such.  They call when they need something, but not much more than that.  Kinda depressing when I think about it, but...that's just the way they are I suppose.

Expect a "Where the Fuck is Carlos" game coming up in the next few months. 

All else is good in Alamoland.  Nothing earth-shattering to report.  Still getting along just fine.

Carlos! Yeah dude. I am with you on those reasons. For me, you can also Add Twitter, Tumblr and G+ to the mix.

Great news about your sis...Here is hoping it all turns out well for her.

Regardless, I still follow you.

I know what you mean about the bloom being off the blogging rose. I don't feel much inspiration to sit down and do it much myself. Glad to hear all's well enough with you. Always look for forward to a Where's Carlos challenge.

My two loyal readers! I'd thought people stopped reading this fucking blog. :-)

Thanks for stopping by! I do visit your blogs, even if my piss-poor commenting doesn't indicate as much :-)

Carlos said...

She's doing just fine.

Glad you're hooking up with your sis.

OK, that sounded wrong, but I'm leaving it. Surely after all the snickers we're all adults who realized what I meant.

I try and remember to call my dad just to say hi sometimes, though I'm as guilty as most at not remembering to call except when I "need" something. Thanks for the reminder to do better.

PS: I can't seem to login these days, so this is TC.

Removed your comment, Arlene...because it had your email address in it, and I'm guessing you don't want the entire free world having their way with your email address :-)

The_Gator said... anxiously waiting for "WTFIC?" So much so that im checking in multiple times a day.

Carlos said...

WTFIC should be coming next month :-)

Carlos said...

TC: Great to hear you're still alive and kicking...had been wondering what became of you! :-)

The_Gator said...

Carlos said...

Where the Fuck is Carlos has been postponed until the end of January due to circumstances beyond my control :-)
