Numb3rs Fic: To Want For Nothing  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #372 - Want


Title: To Want For Nothing
Pairing/Characters: Alan
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: UP
Summary: You can only plan so much
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ


Mortgage on the family home, warranties on appliances.

Long term landscaping, contact book full of friends.

Travel plans, grandkid names, books to read, games to play.

Two bucket lists whittled down to one, with some checked off and many 'one day' promises.

The Eppeses planned for every thing: sending their kids to college, trading in their cars, refinancing their house.

They also planned every last detail to ensure they had a fabulous retirement.

They'd planned to want for nothing.

Only Alan never planned to spend it without his beloved wife Margaret.

Some things in life just can't be planned for.

Oh, Alan. /sniffle/

Heartbreakingly lovely, m'dear.

Indeed... <3

So few of us plan for that sort of thing. No one wants to think about a loved-one dying. Just one more reason to live in the moment as much as you can.

Lovely as ever, dear.
