What About Life Insurance?
Did you know you could buy life
insurance for someone else? I did not know that. It come as
a total surprise to me when my sister told me we should get life
insurance on our parents
to help pay for some of the estate taxes we will be responsible
for when they pass away. Even if your mother
it is possible to insure them. What about that?
We do not want to think about death, but, it wil happen. So we have
to think ahead of time about our financial options.
Life insurance is a great option, because it is not taxed, so the
whole policy amount is usable to pay the taxes.
Welll.... you learn something new every day.
My Wedding Ring
I'm married. I have a wedding ring. I love being married. I love my wedding ring.
But I've got this thing. I don't like to wear my wedding ring when I wash my hands or take a shower. I have another thing. I take off my ring when I dump everything out of my pockets upon returning home - you know, my wallet, keys, change, pen. For some reason, ‘wedding
ring' gets included in that group.
I want to state again, just for the record: I love being married. I love my wedding ring.
There have been a few times that I have temporarily misplaced my ring. Nothing significant, but I do get the occasional “freak-out moment” when I don't see my ring in its normal place (I know, I know, it's “normal place” is on my ring finger). A quick
search usually finds my ring in the pocket of one of my pairs of pants or shorts - put there, no doubt, when I washed my hands.
The other day, I turned over a new leaf. And no, it had nothing to do with a New Year's resolution. I decided to leave my ring on - wet or dry, day or night.
It's taken a little getting used to. In the shower, I feel constantly on the verge of losing my ring off my slippery soapy finger. I still don't like the feel of a wet ring on my not-quite-dry finger. But I'm getting used to it.
Because even though Jane would probably admit that losing my ring would have nothing to do with the love that I have for her, there's something in the back of her eyes that tell me that I had better not ever let that happen.
I'd like to send props to our wedding photographer - Jerry Wang. He did an incredible job using a photojournalistic style of wedding photography.
My best friend and maid of honor, Mary, also deserves lot's of thanks for the beautiful bridal shower invitation she put together. The bridal shower invitations she chose were absolutely gorgeous, and the restaurant was great fun. Thanks to all
the "girls" that attended also.
