Well, it was a 2007 New Year’s Resolution, but I finally finished it 23 days into the following year. I got my will, durable power of attorney, and health care proxy all signed, witnessed, and notarized today. So glad to have that done. 6 years ago
I can’t believe a year has gone by and I haven’t finished this. It’s a bit embarrassing since the paperwork has been done for ages. All I need to do is go into the office and sign the papers!! Well, I made an appointment for this Friday to sign the papers, so I’m hoping to finally cross this off my list this week. 6 years ago
I wrote down all the information for my health care proxy and sent it off to my lawyer. (Who also happens to be my sister!) She’s going to prepare the legal document and send it to me this week so that I can get it notarized. She also wants me to execute a durable power of attorney so that should be done this week as well.
I’ve started working on my will, but that’s going to take longer. It’s a very interesting process. Especially working on the specific bequests. It’s amazing how little my “stuff” starts to mean to me when I think of leaving it behind. I like my house and I have a lot of things that mean something to me. But when I think of leaving them to someone after I’m gone, they just seem far less important. 7 years ago
