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.
Freelancers and contract workers face some major obstacles when it comes to home buying. Getting a mortgage can be hard enough for an employee with a full-time job! Unfortunately, lenders perceive the self-employed as risky borrowers, requiring substantial proof that they have the income and savings necessary to make mortgage payments for years to come.
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.

Golfers in Arizona are excited this month because here in Arizona the Golf rates will start to drop since the Snow Birds are heading back to their summer homes. This is the time of the month we play most of our rounds for the year. Cheap rates last till October and then they start to go back up. So, if you are a golfer now is the time to travel to Arizona for some cheap golf. We are from the Midwest and we know that golf isn’t cheap during the summer months there.
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.
Bitcoins have been in the news big time over the last few years and stories of how people got super rich. I do have to say that I once had a lot of Bitcoins that I had earned back over ten years ago. I didn’t take it serious and forgot about them. There codes are on an old computer that is no longer around. Also, I have not been able to log into my old email account. Ughhh I could be worth many millions of dollars easily by my memory of how many coins I had. Now I use Coinbase to store my coins I have.
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.
If you have been watching the news hopefully you aren’t as mixed up as they seem in office. All this new Government spending they have planned or want to get passed through is going to cost someone. The money doesn’t just fall out of the sky. I try not to watch very much news and we don’t subscribe to the paper.
