Today we all got together to scatter her ashes out into the Pacific, or in her own words she wanted to be “fish food”.
In addition to my wife’s ashes, my mother in law asked me to ask my Dad if he wanted to spread my grandfather ashes, my mom’s ashes. My dad said yes so by the end it ended up being the ashes of five people we scattered that Sunday morning.
my cousins grandfather
and a Thai man whose family asked us to scatter his ashes.
After the boat trip, Veena, my Dad, Piyapong, and I went to Acapulco for Sunday brunch while the rest of the family went looking for other places to eat. I think the four of us made the right choice.
I went back to EDD. It took another hour just to hand them a check for the over payment. You would think they would have an express line for people trying to give them money, but no. But at least it is done and I have receipt so if they ever try to say I owe them.
I went shopping. It was just so weird doing things alone. I know in time it will just be normal and I was shopping alone when I’m in Virginia. But here at home it is just feels weird. I know it will get better in time.
When my mom died, my wife told me to take my dad to Vegas to get him out of the LA for a few days. So we did.
I was out to eat with my Dad and my brother and he said he was going to take me to Vegas. I like Vegas so I agreed and he decided he wanted to go for the Super Bowl. Ok so we went, I tried not to gamble too much and we had fun. we watched the game at Hooters at the Hooters Casino.
The trip was pretty average, but I was able to get root beer from Ellis Island. If you like root beer you need to check it out.
So my wife was on disability for the last two months of her life. They send her a debit card. Well it is in her name so I’m not going to use it. So I try to call EED, that is a complete waste. So I end up taking the train into the city and going to the EED office, I have a feeling that is the only way I’m going to get this solved. I get to the office and the line is out the door.
It takes me an hour to get to speak to someone, he tells me that it is ok that I use it but there has been an over payment. So now I need to head to the bank and deposit the money off the debit card and get a check for the over payment. That sounds pretty easy, of course is can’t go that easily.
The bank can’t take money from a debit card, so as I start looking for places that can give me the cash from the debit card and how much that will cost me, I find I can do it from the debit cards website. So it is actually that easy. I transfers all the money to my bank account, and get a check mad out for the over payment.
The only down side is that I need to make another trip into the city to do this.
