Where do the days go? The appointment with the attorney went well, but also informed us that my mom tossed a couple monkey wrenches into the mix one year after our dad died. Now we are faced with anywhere from 2 months to 2 years to straighten out the mess. We know she didn't mean this to be the case, but it is what it is.
Lots to do but it also becomes a "hurry up and wait" thing, too. My brother and I sit together with many conversations, trying to plan for all kinds of different outcomes.
Hopefully, though it will be a bit of a juggling act, I can return home and get back to some kind of normal routine soon.
I send a huge thanks! to all who have left comments and send messages of love and support. It means a lot. You people are awesome!
