Recently we took our car in for an Oil Change and the Store Manager came out to the sitting area and gave me a long list of repairs the car needs. It was over $3,600. I said to him that the cars value isn’t much over that. When the shock wore off, I told him I was going to hold off for now.
Our folks came from large families. Especially our Dads because they came from farming families and that seemed to be the thing to do. Have a lot of kids and they can help on the farm. Now a days with the high cost of living or the high living lifestyles that so many people have it is hard to have large families. Some people have one or two kids and others choose not to have any kids and have a pet.
Hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. I am excited that it is 2021 and all the new opportunities we have this year. It would be hard for 2021 not to be way better than 2020. As many people know a lot of things can happen to a family in a short period of time.
If you have money in the stock market then you may feel like 2020 was quite a ride for sure. Especially back earlier this year when the market fell hard and fast. Too bad we can’t predict when that would happen. LOL
December was a fun month since this was the first time we had our folks with us for the whole month to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. They plan on staying till sometime in March but we would love to have them live with us full-time in the future.
Happy New Years Eve! Yea, 2020 is over and in the books tomorrow. 2020 is a year that we will all want to forget. I am optimistic that 2021 is going to be better by a mile. I don’t see how it could have been any worse.
Christmas is definitely our favorite Holiday Season. Darlene and myself start decorating the day after Halloween. We like to buy some new Christmas decorations each year.
We have taught our boys to shop around for the best Financial Planner that they like. We have told them to do research on different Financial Planners from what they charge and more. We want them to feel good about who they work with and are able to talk with them comfortably. If they do choose one to work with, we prefer Free of course or if they do pay, then to pay a fixed cost.
Why can’t ever month be like November was for the Stock Market. It was a fun time doing our End of the Month reports this month and seeing how much our Net Worth went up.
November didn’t go as expected for sure. But isn’t that life? Anything can happen at any second so we just keep trying to show gratitude for our family and keep letting ourselves know that things will work out as God has planned for us.
