Ow! Ow! Ow!

I’m in menopause hell. Hence the OWs. I have a couple things to say and then I’m heading to my bed where a heating pad awaits.

First of all, congratulations to FEDORA who is the big winner of my Morning After post over at Liquid Silver Books’ blog. Fedora wins all three of the Phoenix Prophecy books. 🙂

Next, I have little bit of follow up on yesterday’s post. One of the VPs where I work (the one who read Shifting Winds and Hot Water) is a very smart lady (not just cause she read my books *wink*) and she gave me some info to pass along to those of you who are not married. Here’s what Tiffany said:

People who are in a partnership and are not registered should have a durable power of attorney for health care.  In that document, they can appoint their attorney in-fact who will supersede all blood kin.  They will have the right to control end of life decisions with the hospital as well as control the disposition after death. However, it will not address money, homes and material matter. For that, they need a will or a living will or become registered domestic partners.  Things can get messy and the better prepared we are, the smaller the mess becomes.

Hopefully, her words will give those of you who are not prepared a place to start.

Thanks to everyone who stopped over at Jason’s website to offer your condolences and words of support. The outpouring has meant a lot to him.

Since it’s Tuesday, I’ll offer you a tune and then I’m headed to the heating pad! This is Colorful by the Verve Pipe.

    I sympathize with your menopausal pain. I know exactly what you’re talking about. I’m thinking about bed and heating pad after a long, long, day.

    Good advice from your friend.
