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.
What are your Values when it comes to Family, Work, Kids to life? We all probably have different Values and you may not agree with my friends’ views or mine but we hope to get you thinking. To possibly take a look at your situation and ask yourself is it me or them. If it is them then do you want to continue this pattern or take another route. The choice is all yours since you can’t change others, you can only change yourself.
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.
Another crazy month here at the Mills Way Family. We were sad to see Mom and Dad bead back to Minnesota this month. We drove them to Texas and spent the night before heading home. They went on to see relatives in Kansas City before heading home. Our drive to Texas was one of our worst in the last seven years. We drove in heavy Snow, Winds, Fog and Rain. We had times we were stopped on the Interstate with the motor shut off while we waited for traffic to move. We are planning on Flying more in the future then driving back home.
This month went way too fast. We have less than two weeks from today and we will be driving our folks back to their home in Minnesota. They have been down since the first of December and we wish they would just live here all year around. Maybe some day our wish will come true.
Our boys are good boys and we are very proud of them and love them to death. But they still worry me that they may not be Financially Free in the future because of their lack of Action towards Money and Education. Like is hard and even harder if you don’t have money. We constantly tell them they need to live with the Consequences of their Choices they make.
We like to point out to the boys all the time the people that are rich and famous but yet living frugal lifestyles. Our boys like to put these youtubers to Tik Tok kids up on a pedestal because they drive fancy cars and live in these big houses. They watch videos of these people throwing money away to friends and family like its water. We try to bring up to them what would happen to these people if it is real life if You Tube or Tik Tok would quit paying them.
