I Don't Like This Conversation

Just had a meeting with a Life Insurance Rep.  I have to say, it's hard to be excited about this kind of meeting.  All those numbers:  Life expectancy, pay this-much and you'll get this-much if you pass, put in $ and you'll get it IF you pass before a certain age.

Ugh.

I have to put myself into another mind set for these meetings.  I try to stay involved and not go wandering off in my thoughts somewhere, like not think about how I would like to be talking about just-about-anything-else then Life Insurance.

Happily the meeting ended with our rep. needing to catch a plane to spend the weekend in the Napa Valley.  We perked right up when we heard that.  Talk about a "happy place" for Rob and I!!!  We brought out our books and gave him recommendations for wineries to visit.  It's his first trip with his girlfriend and he was happy for the input.

We didn't bond over our "death money" conversation, we bonded over wine, as it should be.

If only we were headed to the Napa Valley this weekend as well.  Have you ever been?  If so, what wineries would you recommend?

(I'm joining the weekend link-up at Our Everyday Harvest.  Visit this blog and add your blog link as well.  Let me know if you do!)

    1. Ha! I like that Karen :-> And yes, there are numbers involved everywhere you turn; mortgage, interest rates, balancing check books, etc. Gah! (Some days I wish I could just go play in the sand box and wait for nap time.)

    1. I know, I would avoid these things too if my husband wasn't so organized. (And thankfully he is!)
