I now understand how the death of someone close to you can “unfreeze” your everyday routine and “thought” processes.

When my mom died, I took an afternoon off to visit a couple of banks for refinancing my mortgage – something that was not all urgent at the time.

When my dad died, Pam and I had a long-established condo party at our place scheduled for a week after his funeral. We didn’t cancel it and strangely found ourselves not thinking about the event’s details. We just let it happen – not concerned about how clean our condo was or whether we had the right beverages or food.

The grieving process can play tricks on us all.

* What incident during a grieving process from the past do you now recall with some amusement?
