I’m not going to lie. I’m a bit groggy. I may or may not make any sense. After a day intermixed with work and having a difficult post office transaction, I needed to sit on the couch and watch a completely silly no-effort movie. I watched the Netflix movie called You People. Within 20 minutes, I ended up falling asleep. My nap was really no intended reflection on the movie. After all, I slept through it. But it did help me get what I needed all along: a nap.
When someone close to you dies, there’s a lot of paperwork. Endless paperwork. And, one has to mail do many original death certificates. Getting 10 death certificates may not be enough. The amount of people and institutions who need to be notified is staggering. I can only handle two of those transactions a day.
Today, I to send via certified mail a death certificate. That meant going to the post office where the directions to send out a certified document are posted at the clerk’s window. However, you are expected to have the proposed certified document all ready to go before you get to the window. And, I was repeatedly told that no employee could help me because then they would be liable. Luckily, a fellow customer saw my death certificates and how flustered I was and helped me set it all right.
By the time the day ended, I was depleted. A nap on the couch while “watching” a silly movie was what I needed.

That’s brutal, I’m so sorry. I’m glad you were assisted by some kind souls.
Take that nap as often as your body lets you. You need the rest. ❤️ 🫂
