It is a new year and we have done our Family P & L Actuals from last year. We have also done our 2021 Budget and Goals sheets together. Now is the time to update our Retirement Projection sheets with our Actuals from 2020 to see our new Retirement Projections.
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.
