I would never dream of taking her rings…

I was reading a message board today while eating lunch and there was a discussion of families fighting over assets when a relative dies. There were all sorts of horror tales of what people went through. I was amazed, as I cannot even imagine my siblings and I fighting like that.

We have all stated at one time or another that we don’t want our parents’ stuff or money. We want them to use up every single bit of what they have while they are here.

They, of course, have wills and whatever is left when they go will be disposed of exactly by the terms of their wills.

The thing that bugged me a lot was people talking about fighting over their moms’ wedding rings. I know my sibs and I would not do that, as our mom will be buried with her rings. They are hers and she doesn’t have to leave them to anyone.

And we certainly wouldn’t just take them.

They are hers.

Please know, if your mom passed away and left you her rings I am in no way saying that you should not have them.

I am just TOO married....

Last week, I decided that I was either too old or too married.

Well, I am not too old, so I must be too married.

Several women at work were discussing hot guys in our office. I don't find any of these guys hot. Sure, some of them are attractive, but they do not cause me to salivate like some of these women are doing. Oh, yeah, and they are all married!

Is it odd that I do not drool over guys that are not my husband?

I don't think so.
