A Difficult Day
Don't get me wrong; a lot of good things happened today. However, it was still a bit of a difficult day for me.
My financial advisor suggested that, for legal reasons, I should remove Rob's name from our joint bank account. Sounds simple enough, right? Sure, except that showing people at the bank the death certificate and explaining to that Rob had been gone for almost six years made me feel extremely anxious and depressed. I felt exactly the same when I had to write emails this morning, directing people at another bank to issue two cheques from my mother's estate in order to pay her accountant and the CRA.
I'm proud of myself for keeping on top of things, straightening out finances. Mom would be so pleased!
And yet, I really wish that I could somehow stop the painful, knee-jerk reaction I sometimes have when the subject of my mother and Rob's death is brought up.
Oh well .... As Hershey reminds me: "Tomorrow is another day!"
