Can you believe it? My baby girl Lauren will be 2 years old tomorrow! Time sure flies when you are ripping your hair out! Just kidding....

I'm slowly getting back to myself. It's a tremendous blow (at least it was to me) when my Mom died. I knew she was sick, but I really didn't expect her to go so soon. I just keep reminding myself that we couldn't have asked for anything better than her going peacefully in her sleep.

I don't know if any of you have lost both parents.... if so, you know what I mean...it's a whole new ballgame when you lose your 2nd parent. I have learned much more than I EVER wanted to know during the last couple of weeks. I'm the POA/Executor of the estate....OY. What a pain.... but it's what my Mom wanted.

My advice.... ALWAYS have POA papers signed (financial AND healthcare). ALWAYS have a will with an excutor of the estate and people designated to care for minor children. ALWAYS have someone as a beneficiary of your accounts. And ALWAYS have all of your life insurance/insurance premiums up to date. Makes life MUCH easier.

Well, I suppose I should go now. Chris went to get the kids from daycare... I'm still on a lift restriction. Hopefully he will release the restriction on Friday. My back is sore, but I can still function.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. It means a great deal to me. Thanks.

Kim

That is why I'm glad (sort of) my oldest brother is the POA. It's a tremendous amount of paperwork and headaches!!!!

I hope your back gets 100% better soon.
