You know that post-holiday lull that often happens right after New Year’s Day? Well, apparently it is not happening in 2010. A new wrinkle has developed with an ER (Elderly Relative) and that means it’s a preempt. Thankfully, health is not the issue; it’s more of a chess challenge! However, when I sit down at the keyboard, what I want to do is pour it all out in a post. But that’s way too much like a twenty-something’s middle of the night drunken phone call to an ex-boyfriend. It might feel good in that brief moment, but the next morning - between the hangover and the regret - Oy!

The meeting with our attorney was great. Very productive and it was good to catch up with her. We had reviewed all of our documents, annotated a copy of the will and felt we went in well prepared. She had some good suggestions, which we will follow up on. As a result, we should have all the “I”s dotted and all the “T”s crossed in fairly short order. Drawing up Last Wills and Testaments may not be a fun thing to do, but once it is completed and signed, it really does bring peace of mind.

I’m hoping to get out in the sunshine with the camera tomorrow. Fingers crossed...

Fingers crossed on your behalf, I'd cross my toes too, bit I'm painting them and don't want to smudge!

I'm still waiting for the post holiday lull. It think it might happen in March...

We had our post Christmas blues last week, just a ppphhhhlump sort of week, but back on our feet now, fab! I like Irene's idea of putting it off until June too!

Hope all is well with relatives etc, catch up soon

Hi All -
Thank you for the good wishes!
We're hoping we can get things set to rights and get some useful systems in place over the next few weeks. The hidden benefit is that the more we learn now, the more we can plan and prepare for our own needs - hopefully long, long, long into the future!
