Ever Since last August I have been inundated with Paper(s) that were in no particular order that chronicled the life of my Grandmother of 91 years old when I adopted it.
When I saw this prompt I thought to myself ........"this should be easy smeasy." It wasn't. Just the day before I took the photo above of 2 of the items that came in the mail with return envelopes and little sticky things that told me where to sign and / or date or both.
I am supposed to write my name with a pen to satisfy someone elses' requirements. I have gotten letters from Dr.'s , lawyers, insurance companies, and so on...........yea its very important stuff, like I am a VIP or something for a moment. Then I sign it....
I had paperwork dating all the way back to the 1940's. I had paper-work that someone at some point thought was important and most of it went to the dump, in the back of a pick up truck on its journey back and fourth 6 times and that still wasn't enough. I continue to press on and wade through this paperwork trying to make heads or tails out of what to do, when to do it , what not to do and how much everything cost(s). Most of the time the signatures require a notary seal, a seal, saying that the person that was with me........ saw me sign it and knows that I am who I am via a photo identification and once again, I need to change that..... my identification........ what a job that is, it requires a lot of
love that part
I sign them and if I did it "just right" then I then just get filed away and forgotten. They got what they wanted or needed from me, I did what was required on my part.
like the IRS
Oh unless of course I owe money or time or something else THEY NEED, then I will get more of the same..........
Otherwise....... and Usually....... I am just put in a file....... another form of paper.
I miss the days when my biggest concern with paper was playing "paper, rock, scissors" or making paper dolls from the Sears & Robuck Catalog with my Great Aunt
that ............either would be the picture I would rather have on my page today...
