I barely slept last night. Sleep is always a huge chore when I come down to Santa Cruz and my insomnia was compounded by my anxiety and stress about meeting with lawyers today to discuss my mother's estate and start the probate process. The meeting was good, casual, informative and frightening all at once. I now have a better idea of what to expect over the next few months, and a much better sense of what the whole probate process entails. I am relieved about some things and very very freaked out about a lot of new things. There's a lot of information to digest for the time being. But, I feel like I am slightly more on top of things for having gotten the ball rolling.
There's a lot on my mind, but words fail me. I'm cranky and I need a nap.
