I made it out of the house today. I had planned to Tuesday, then Wednesday, but today was the day. Yay me.
You’d think that after all those weeks of being trapped in the house by the snow that I would run flying out the door every chance I get. Not so. Complicated by a week of upside down sleep. I’ve managed to get to sleep before 4AM the last couple nights and that has decreased my sleep-all-afternoon behavior, which helps when it comes to getting out of the house.
It was a day full of excitement. I went to local grocery and bought out the deli. I’m not in the mood to cook, I am in the mood for sandwiches. Probably I bought too much and will have to freeze some when my sandwich fixation runs out before my deli meat.
And off to the post office. Nothing too exciting there.
Then to the bank where I got my parents’ local account “re-written.” The bank changed hands last year and why they didn’t do this when I filed all the POA stuff is beyond me. Having fun proving they exist. It’s kind of funny, the nice bank lady asked if Mom and Dad couldn’t just sign some papers and I had to explain that it’s not actually legal for them to do so. That’s why I’m the POA, they can’t legally make financial decisions. Oh well. Will be paying roughly $200 to get their safe deposit box drilled. I do need to know what’s in there though I can’t imagine what could be besides maybe their will. Could be that they still have saving bonds?
One of my memories from childhood regarding money is Mom standing at the bank window endorsing $25 after $25 savings bonds to pay for a car they bought. We are talking about car prices in the 70s but – that is a lot of $25 saving bonds.
And that was my exciting day.
