In Case We Die...
So my hubs and I have a little getaway planned soon for our anniversary. I've been looking forward to it for months now. It's getting closer so the drills have begun... I've actually been working on them for weeks now.
You know the ones...
The "In Case We Die" drills.
Does anyone else do this or is it just the borderline OCD me that does this?
I better clean the bathroom in case we die and someone has to come in and take care of our kids for us. I don't want to be embarrassed by having a dirty bathroom after all!
I better wash all the laundry so the kids will have enough clothes to get them through a few days in case we die.
I better give the boys haircuts in case we die so they don't look like hippies at our funeral. (I was going to say orphans, but, well... you know... if that happened they really WOULD be orphans. So I'll say hippies.)
I better make sure all the bills are paid so the kids will have electricity for another month in case we die.
I should write my will so that my kids aren't sent to foster care in case we die. (I know. Don't lecture me. I know I should already have this. I just don't want to deal with it, okay?)
I should balance my checkbook so that it won't be left undone in case we die.
You get the picture, right?
My list is even longer when it's just me leaving and my husband isn't going with me.
Because then I have to make sure everything is done for him so he won't have to worry about anything until after my funeral.
I know. I know.
It sounds very morbid.
But I can't help it.
I like to be prepared.
I'm a mom and it's one of my job descriptions after all.
So tell me this...
Am I crazy and the only one who does this?
Or is it normal and lots of women do this?
I need to know.
