A close friend of mine just recently experienced the loss of her husband. They had been married only a few short years and she is devastated by his sudden passing. I can’t imagine how she feels, but she seems to be holding up pretty well, all considering. She is in the process of getting all of the life insurance policy, bank accounts, charge cards, and titles in order and has taken advantage of a free credit report online to find some of the information that she needs to get her finances on track. Since she has all of his personal information on hand, it wasn’t hard to get into his credit report, glad that she did because she found all kinds of things about his finances that she had no idea about.
What a major head ache to have to deal with. She is lucky that her mother and her have a good relationship and that she lives so close by. Her mother has been there for her through thick and thin and I’m grateful for that, since we live so darn far away these days. I can give her support via email, IM and phone calls, but there is nothing like someone being right there by your side to help guide and support you in times such as these.
You would think that all the family members that live under this roof would know how our dog loves stealing items and give them a good chewing. We have been dealing with this issue since the first day we brought McGee home from the animal shelter and it has cost us a good amount of money to replace chewed up stuff. The emotional attachments that we have had to deal with has cost us big time as well.
My son left his 1d mouthpiece to his trumpet on his bedroom floor and didn’t close his door behind him when he left for school yesterday. Now I have to run downtown to buy a new one to replace the damaged one. I wish we had time to find an affordable one online, but I fear that with all of the holiday packages slamming the delivery services and the post office, that we wouldn’t get it in time for their holiday production at school that he is supposed to participate in.
I really don’t like shopping at the old brick and mortar stores, especially now with all the holiday shoppers packing the stores looking presents to purchase. But a mom has to do what a mom has to do for her kids, right?
My belly dancing instructor gave me a book to read at my last class. She knows that I enjoy reading and she thought that I might enjoy reading this one as well. It is by Alev Lytle Croutier, The Palace of Tears, which is an enchanting tale of love.
My instructor is such a wonderful gal and I can’t wait to read this little book that she so graciously turned me on to. It isn’t very long so it won’t take but a few hours to read it from cover to cover and then I’ll pass it along to someone else that might enjoy it as well.
With just a few clicks online I found these exceptional fender casters that I immediately placed an order for. Christmas is coming up here real soon like and I hate to wait to the last minute, especially when ordering online. As much as I enjoy and find great deals online there is always the question of whether or not it will be delivered or delivered in time. So far I have experienced a lot of good transactions but of course there has a few times that I had to spend a bit of time and effort on. But it sure beets the heck out of shopping the old brick and mortar way!
I’ll be glad when the whole holiday season is all over and done with. This year I seem to be having a hard time getting into the spirit of it all. Maybe it will arrive in time, maybe not.
Last night my friend Judy and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, ‘I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all, If that ever happens, just pull the plug.’
So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my beer.
She’s such a bitch!
