***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!)

I am right there with you! I was just saying to Kevin tonight, though, that I need to stop being exasperated by the treadmill I call my life. My life is good, but dealing with constant insanity makes me insane. Such a challenge.

And yes, as an estate planning attorney who is currently refusing to do any estate planning for others, everyone needs a will. Even those who think, why would I need a will. I guarantee, you too need a will. Truly.

and P.S. So glad you are keeping Elizabeth. She is really cute.

EA is very entertaining as well. Good choice.

amen, on the will lecture from an expert.
and, we're pretty pleased with the decision to keep EA.

mandi - thanks. we think it's one of our better choices.

So sad...I couldn't read whatever it was done in the yellow ink, so in my mind, that was when you kind of got a break...maybe you should write more things in yellow.
