Grocery Spending, and Legal Question

March 11th, 2019 at 10:14 am

I went to the gym yesterday and then to Aldi's, where I spent $45. Variables are at 52%, with 16 days to go.

Even though the temperature was warmer than it has been, the wind was high, and it was freezing! I was quite miserable loading and unloading the car, and I was happy to spend the rest of the day at home.

I made a comfort-food casserole with chicken, rice, mushrooms and cream of mushroom soup. It turned out very dry after I baked it. I'm assuming the rice absorbed a lot of the liquid. I think I'm going to try to rescue it by adding more liquid, maybe a combination of milk and broth.

I need to call a lawyer and find out about switching my durable power of attorney. Right now my older son is the enforcer, but he lives in Florida now and it makes more sense for the son who lives nearby to be the one who makes the decisions. Older DS is going to be vacationing at the Grand Canyon when I am in surgery and may not even be reachable. I'm sure nothing is going to go wrong, but I want to be sure I have my ducks in a row when the time comes.

Does anyone know if this is a simple thing to do, and will I need to pay a legal fee to have it done? My lawyer has long since retired, and her office is three hours away from me, so I'm not even sure who is going to take care of this. Should I just find a new lawyer nearby? I'm never in need of legal services, so I don't know the protocol.

    CB, as a suggestion, perhaps you could call the hospital where you are having the surgery. They might be able to tell you how to change this without little to no cost to you. Or maybe even your doctor's office. I know one time when I was having surgery, the doctor's office asked if I had power of attorney or a living will and suggested if not, they had someone at the hospital who could get me the right forms.
