I feel like I have no control over my life right now. I’m a bit of a control freak, so you can imagine how well this is going for me.
Each day I make a list of things I need to accomplish. This is a list of 4 out of 342395832043 items that haven’t changed status in days.
– File travel insurance claim forms
– Get process for vehicle transfers
– Get health insurance policy #
– New toll tag
Yesterday, I spent an hour on the phone trying to get the right information for only two of those line items. I only got as far as “we promise this is the right person you need to talk to THIS time”, but still no answers.
As soon as I feel like I’m making headway, I get slapped with disappointing news from things I thought I could count on. The stresses are mounting.
Do yourself a favor – even if you are young and healthy, do a little research for your spouse. Make things easier for them in their time of grief. Write a will. Write down all your account passwords. File things in a somewhat organized matter. Maybe don’t be a technology hoarder?
My husband loved me, but he left me with a giant pile of shit that I am crumbling under. It’s like a nightmare I’m not waking up from, and it’s only getting harder instead of easier.
