I have been blogging for almost 3 years now, and had never really been on any blog-related trips until recently. As a matter of fact, all of my trips have been very, very recent. I went to sunny California for a Disney event in September, and earlier this month I visited the Big Apple for an Excedrin Migraine event. Tomorrow, I will be flying to Chicago and then off to gorgeous St. Joseph's/Benton Harbor, Michigan for my "Real Whirled" experience for Whirlpool/Maytag.
Now anyone who knows me knows I am terrified of flying. I just can't seem to get used to it! Before any trip, I experience some anxiety. Last night, I had a dream that my plane crashed. It was one of those vivid, freaky dreams that leaves your heart pounding, and you wake in a cold sweat. It actually took me over an hour to fall back asleep!
As I was tossing and turning, I realized my husband and I don't have life insurance...You know...In case the unthinkable happens. I started worrying about what would happen to the kids, and what security would be left for my family if something happened to me or Dan. Sure, our house is paid for, but there are always other expenses that will need to be paid, like funeral expenses, medical bills, and home repairs. I know that if something happened to my husband, I wouldn't be able to afford these things on my own.
So today, I will be researching our options as far as obtaining some form of life insurance for both of us. Yeah, I know. I worry too darn much.We're young, and my plane more than likely will not burst into flames mid-air. (I'm cringing just thinking about it!) But you never really know what could happen, and it's better to be safe than sorry. I want my kids to have some security for their futures...Just in case.
Now I am off to get packed for my trip to The Windy City! I know I will have a ton to share with you all when I get back! I am really excited to meet the Whirlpool/Maytag folks and learn more about the brand. I'll also get to meet some other bloggers!
Have you talked about getting life insurance? Do you have any tips you can share when searching for the right policy? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
