***If you have kids, YOU NEED A WILL. If you have assets of any kind, YOU NEED A WILL. If you have a will, you need to re-evaluate it every five years because, trust me, things change! As my friend said, when we made our last will we were so poor we were deciding who would get the food stamps. We need to update it now so we can decide who gets the iPod (that and go ahead and add Elizabeth as one of our children - her probation period is over and we've decided to keep her!)
