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 getting more driving practice in. He drove part of the way to Texas and Minnesota. He also got to do some driving in Minnesota. He is doing really good for just starting out. He may take off too fast at times or break too hard but that will come with practice.
Logan is still doing well at Wal-Mart Night Stock shift and working on his computer programming at night. He is going to start working out with a co-worker to get in really good shape for bootcamp.
Our trip on the road to Minnesota had signs that showed us it is everywhere that is having issues finding good help or any help at all. I don’t know what the magical answer is but if I was running a business I would be out recruiting hard if my business needed employees.
Along our travels I caught up with some old friends and heard a few tough stories of Financial Struggles. This is why we talk to our boys almost daily about finances and I wrote the book called “Money Secrets to Make You Rich”. We will keep having family education nights until the day they are out living on their own.
We are far from perfect ourselves and make plenty of mistakes also or spend too much money on wasteful items. But Darlene and myself try to stay with in our budget and keep reviewing our actuals and future projections monthly.
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”. By Albert Einstein. I would also say the definition of insanity is believing you can live a financial responsible life without tracking how you are doing, having a budget and goals. I like following others who track their finances to compare our also. I enjoy helping people with their finances and goals.
We want to give our boys the best chance to have their money last them thru their retirement years and have them reach their Financial Freedom goals. They need to live somewhat with a frugal mindset and spend less than they make so they can Invest towards their Financial Freedom goals.
Here are some positive quotes I like;
“Get your Money to Work for You… As hard as You Work for it.” By Napoleon Hill
