Still kind of weirded out by the whole death thing. Somebody has been in the backyard-- the table with the lighter was moved-- but I haven't seen an actual person there yet.

Long-term thinkies about my own health, what I'd do if I died (well, besides decompose and all), what kind of things I should plan for. A will, certainly, though who would want all of my crap I don't know. But something more perhaps would be a centrally located envelope with information of things like next of kin, the pets names, who to contact, medical information, that kind of stuff. Something that if I needed to be taken away in an ambulance or a body bag there is an easy place for the officials to identify me and all.

Seems a tad morbid, but practical.

The other part-- the whole being alone part-- that's really hideous right now.

Nothing like a death to bring your own mortality into focus! It's good to be reminded of these things, even if they shock us into awareness. A will is something I'd not really thought of much until recently. Mostly because I actually own things that people may want now. But my mom's the only person who I'd want to have things I own, or to handle anything I own if I were to leave this plane. One day she will depart & then I don't know who I'd leave things to! Maybe just have someone auction my things away? I dunno. :/

Believe it or not, I have done all of that. Morbid - probably. I prefer to think of it as being practical. I have left copies of paperwork with 3 close friends. My cell phone has an ICE (In Case of Emergency) number on it. (Law enforecement look for the acronym ICE on your phone if you are incapacitated.) I also have a list of "important" numbers tacked up at home, in my garage and in the trunk of my car in case I kick off in any of those places.

Yeah, I think about those things too ... and yeah it's hard to be alone ... (4 year olds aren't very helpful when it comes to estate planning.)

**hugs once again**

This sounds pretty deep-shaking (and rightly so). Plans for furry kids, house, et cetera.... good to have. But still....

For The Record: You would be very much missed, my dear (and not just by me).

Just thought I ought to say it (because it's true, and because you ought to hear it... a LOT... imho.) None of us ever knows when we're gonna go.... so I say it as often as I can: I care about you, and you are a good person to care about. (And a good person in your own right, just 'cause you are who you are).

Wish I could offer more than just words and an electronic hug at this time.... I believe touch (i.e.: a real-person-hug) communicates far more than just words, and would prolly give more comfort. Wish I could send a *real* hug to you, and not only just these well-meant electrons.

Take good care of yourself (inside and out) sweetie. **hugs, wishing she could do/offer more**
