After being left in peace for a week, the papers started raining down into my mailbox. Most of it was easy to do with a phone call or email but the best part were the administration forms ! 8 pages to fill out, all with data that they knew anyway.
But to top it all off I should list all the children Rick had, legal, illegal or deceased!! I had to laugh so hard that I couldn't stop. I saw myself hiring a private detective looking for illegal and deceased children ! Unbelievable.
I called them the next day and told them that unfortunately I didn't know how many illegal children my husband had brought into the world. The officer took a breath and said "Madame throw this in the bin". And the matter was settled! After all, I had already received my widow's pension, so all these questions were completely unfounded.
All this took the last energy I have. Friends from very long time proposed to help but fortunately there was not much paperwork Now it's finished and on Tuesday when again I was only sitting in my black hole, I kicked myself and went to "my" travel agency and booked 2 weeks in Djerba/Tunisia in a Wellness and SPA hotel to help me to put me together again. I need a break from Europe and it's troubles and I like the North African countries. In Egypt it is too hot now so I choose Djerba
I leave on Sunday and until there, I will try to find a new life as normal as possible..
