Are you ready to slow down and enjoy a simpler life? Downsizing your home is a great way to save money and time in retirement — that is, if you can pull it off.
Darlene and myself was talking about how many gifts do we really remember from our pasts. Especially most people don’t remember anything before age 6 because our Brains aren’t fully developed yet. We talked about even if we could remember what we got 10 years ago. Also, what gifts have we got in the past that we even use today.
oday. We do enjoy Fall but we like to decorate right after Halloween so we can enjoy it longer. We don’t know if we are going to have any family down here this year for Christmas like we did last year or not. Our Folks are planning on coming down in January.
It is starting to look like Fall in parts of the country now. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. The colors are amazing up in Northern Arizona and I heard back in the Midwest they are looking good also.
Helping your senior parents downsize and move can come with exciting adventures and unanticipated difficulties. On one hand, you know your parents will thoroughly enjoy a smaller home that fits their physical requirements, as well as having more money and time for fun. On the other, you know the move will require a significant amount of effort.

Hope everyone had a fun August because that is what life is about right? The Mills Family had an exciting month for our family and business. Even though my golf game got rained out a few times due to the bad storms we had we still got some golf in. I normally play or practice golf almost every day that it isn’t pouring down rain. Here in Arizona, we normally only get rain about 30 days a year so I get a lot of golf in.
Our June vacation extended into most of July. We have been on vacation more weeks that Seth has been out of school for summer break. Our lives are one big vacation. LOL
Vacation time for Darlene. Yea. Darlene was still working about 6 to 7 days a week. The overtime is good for our vacation this summer to Texas, Kansas City, Minnesota and Colorado. Big road trip for sure. Just about 3 weeks away. This month we made it to Texas, Kansas City and Minnesota. Next month we will see Colorado.
Seth is done with school till August now and the warm weather is starting to arrive here in Arizona. This is my favorite time of the year with School being done and vacation trips coming up soon. So many good things to look forward too and be grateful for.
Being a caregiver for an older parent or a loved one with disabilities in decline can be physically, emotionally, and mentally challenging. For these caregivers, the pandemic has fetched an additional worry that also weighs heavily on their shoulders. However, no matter what times we live in, we are ultimately forced to make some decisions for our own sake or in the name of the loved one we take care of. Caregiving for a Loved One
