We don't have a will.
There, I said it.
Chalk it up to denial about my own mortality, fear of thinking of the horrible possibility of my and my husband's death and leaving our kids orphaned, or plain old laziness and not wanting to act like a grown-up.
But my only New Year's resolution this year is to make a will. We have verbally asked certain family members to be the guardians of our children should we pass away, but nothing has been put in writing.
It's not fun to think about, but it's the responsible thing to do and I want our family to be as protected and prepared as possible in the event of the untimely deaths of me and Steve.
I am a little overwhelmed by the options, though: there are will kits you can buy, you can have it done by a lawyer and spend a whole schwack of dough, or a Notary Public can also do it, right? Clearly, I haven't done my homework, but this is the week that I make those calls, figure out where we will have our will made up, and then just go and DO IT already.
Do you have a will? Where did you have it created, and how much did it cost?
