I didn't realize I have been so neglectful of my blog, over a month of silence. So sorry.
A word of advice to any readers out there: if you don't have a Last Will & Testament, draw one up. If you have make sure it's up-to-date. Unfortunately my sister's will is over 20 years old and so very outdated. She left my father and me as co-representatives, not knowing that when she passed I would be 1400 miles away and my father in his 80's. She didn't specify any particulars on how to split her assets except 50/50 between the kids. She didn't have PODs (payable on death) beneficiaries on many of her bank and annuity accounts. All this has left her estate a complete mess in Probate. Add family disputes, things disappearing from the house, me rushing to notarize paperwork to send up north. My father's medical issues causing the burden to fall on my mother. Add Co-Vid and the inability to hold an estate sale. Days spent on the couch in tears.... Like I said, a mess. My therapist says that my sister's death plus the isolation from Co-Vid is bringing back my grief from losing Bob and I do miss him now more than ever. It will be 6 years this month...
On top of dealing with this, spent an entire day at a car detailer "mold bombing" my formerly flooded car. Which afterwards smelled like a toxic waste dump, and the conditioner they used left the gas and brake pedals so slippery that it was nerve-racking drive home.
And hours on the phone dealing with my insurance regarding medical bills, including one that was submitted to the wrong insurance company and then turned over to collections.... And insurance claim paperwork.
Having to have a new AC unit installed... etc. with general usual home maintenance and mold issues in the house.
Still working with on my hand therapy...
My book manuscript has come to a screeching halt.
I will be try to post more regularly in the future.
Sorry again. Excuse any typos, fingers still not working right. Frustrating.
