Why Beth is Going a Wee Bit Crazy
Thursday’s legal meeting went well – if you consider basically starting from scratch a good thing. Which I do. Relatively speaking. (I changed law firms after seven months of no action.)
One complaint. Why is common sense not used in these matters?
Oops. Silly question. The law and lawyers are involved – the latter having a great deal to do with creating the former.
Was late getting home – missed my hydrotherapy class, the dog was in barf mode, son # 1 cleaned up a pile using paper towels, flushed paper towels down toilet, toilet overflowed. A neighbour dropped by and began crying over the loss of her (15?) year old car. I extended my sympathies while noting the incongruity of it all.
Was saved from this by the arrival of dinner – Swiss Chalet. Dog still not well but begging for fries. Insurance agent called with request to drop in later. Did so. I signed papers re: changes in coverage. (Note to self – inform lawyer.)
Highlight of the evening? The Leafs won. (Thanks, guys.)
Friday – many phone calls made and a search and photocopy mission instigated for (more) financial papers for lawyer. Furnace making weird noises again. Appointment for next Tuesday made. (Dear God – let this furnace last ‘til then….)
And I am behind on every aspect of Christmas preparation. Can you be behind if you haven’t started?
I have a massive To Do list for today. And I don’t want to go outside. It is very, very cold.
I should add “Count My Blessings” to the list but I’m putting that off until tomorrow.
Such a procrastinator…
