I did something for myself that I hope I will not regret and will make me happy for years to come. I bought a new mattress set...and I researched for a few weeks and I bought what for me is quite an expensive set. Tony is going to build our frame himself. I talked to quite a few mattress "people" and read online about the best types of mattresses for obese folks so I would know as much as possible going in. I looked around and Rooms to Go was having a very good President's Day sale this weekend and they had a mattress set that met my requirements PLUS when you bought the set, you got a free 40" LCD TV! I found the same mattress one other place for $200 less but I certainly couldnt by a 40" TV for that price so I went with Rooms to go. Plus they deliver. And the mattress has a 10 year non-prorated warranty with Rooms to Go. That is a good selling point. We had to go to Myrtle Beach to do this errand, so we took Keyana with us and she wanted to go see the ocean and it was a beautiful day for it. Almost 80 out and sunny. Papa and her walked along the sand looking for sea shells for quite a while. It was warm enough she actually had a tank top on! Then we ate some lunch, Calabash Seafood is the best if any of you can ever get some. Next we went to Tony's favorite store in the world, Bass Pro Shop. They have a huge one down there. Keyana was happy as long as she can carry a basket and shop. That child is already a shop-o-holic and needs a 12 step program. Tony couldnt find the lures he was looking for but he did find the seasonings he was hoping to find for some sausage we want to make with the grinder I got him for Xmas. Keyana found a Barbie fishing pole and a Barbie tackle box. Yes, she got it. We were most amazed to find out when we got home that the fishing pole lights up and sparkles when you go to cast it! Papa taught her how to cast it in about 15 minutes and she was throwing that thing about 20 feet in no time! I think we have a little fisherwoman in the makings! My last little bit of news is that last night my step mom called me. I figured it was just to see how things were going. Well not so much. She told me she had some good news for me. First thing out of my mouth was "Oh, did you find the slides from when I was little?" LOL. She kind of laughed and told me no, she hadnt gotten that far yet but she had been working on going through my dad's papers in his desk and she had come across a life insurance policy that no one had known about. This policy was taken out in 1957. I figure it must have been something that was done through his company at work. The original beneficiary on the policy was my mother and at that time, I hadnt even been born. Pat contacted the company and told them that my Dad had died and that the beneficiary was also dead. The insurance company asked her if there were any surviving children, which of course there is...ME! So now, I have to get the paperwork from Pat, get a copy of my mom's death certificate and send all that stuff in and then I get proceeds from that life insurance policy too. This is a policy no one knew about. He has just been paying a small premium on it every year since 1957! Imagine that. Its a wonder he never told anyone about it but I guess he knew I would just get it eventually anyway. Its not a lot but it will make a big difference in allowing me to redo my house and letting me keep that CD sitting without touching it at all. Now I feel like I got enough to do what I need to do now and have that nest egg to just sit and give me a small sum every year to buy xmas with. Or say I need to replace an appliance. I know I have one small amount every year coming in from interest besides what is normal.
