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.
Our boys both have girlfriends this Valentines Day and they are trying to think of what they could do with the little bit of cash they have. This is a common thing for a lot of people. Some people let their heart do the thinking and not their Financial Freedom Mind which gets them in trouble after Valentine’s day.
Another awesome Month to live in Arizona. We had a great month here with Mom and Dad. I feel living in Arizona that we get more company and have more quality time with company then we would have had back in Minnesota. The month was a roller coaster of emotions and crazy things happening. I guess that is called life. LOL
