One of our financial goals has been to get our estate planning squared away. My husband has never had a will before, and mine needed updating, so we had an appointment with an estate planning attorney recently to do just that. They will be doing a will, a living will, a durable general power of attorney, and a durable health care power of attorney for each of us, along with creating an affidavit of trust that basically explains that I’m still me and still the trustee of my existing trust agreement even though my name has changed. I’m glad to have that almost out of the way now. It’s one of those things that you don’t generally look forward to doing, but feel very relieved once it’s done. (Especially if you have children or have ever had to handle the estate of a loved one.)
