A Big Shock!

Yesterday morning I woke up with the intention of having a very cheerful productive day. Leif was home and we didn't have any plans taking us away from the house. It was time to Get Things Done!

And then I climbed out of bed!:)

After getting breakfast ready we started working on paperwork and technicalities for school financial aid. Really, not that big of a deal. But the house was a mess. We have to keep the floor spic and span because I have a little mobile vacuum baby. He keeps getting things and gagging on them. So scary and no fun! So I was sitting at the computer, gradually finding myself getting more irritable and more irritable. And then the big BANG! Leif walked in announcing that he had some bad news. - One of my friends died in her sleep. -  She leaves two little ones under the age of five years old. Yes, we are way too young to have a friend suddenly die. Well, that's what we tell ourself anyway.

Truth be told, we have no control over death. NONE! Life might just end up being very short. Is our life in order? What things do Leif and I need to get in order, just in case? I fell asleep with these questions being my last thoughts. Who would take care of my children... Shudder...!

Needless to say, yesterday didn't really turn out as planned. Definitely Not!

I'm very sorry for your loss. It is so awful to think about what will happen when we die. Are our affairs in order? Who will take care of the kids? You need an ESTATE PLAN! It's awful to think about but once you have everything planned out you don't have to worry about it. I know personally once we did our will we felt so much more at peace knowing our children were secure should, God forbid, something happen to us.

It's weird that you bring this up. I've actually been doing a lot of wills and trusts lately. Anyway, let me know if you need help. I'll give ya the family and friends discount ;)
