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.
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.
The more questions we ask the more we learn about Social Security to help us with our Retirement Projections. My Dad and myself got talking about what happens when once spouse dies how much the other spouse gets then from Social Security for monthly payments if they are both retired.
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
It is a new year and we have done our Family P & L Actuals from last year. We have also done our 2021 Budget and Goals sheets together. Now is the time to update our Retirement Projection sheets with our Actuals from 2020 to see our new Retirement Projections.
Our folks came from large families. Especially our Dads because they came from farming families and that seemed to be the thing to do. Have a lot of kids and they can help on the farm. Now a days with the high cost of living or the high living lifestyles that so many people have it is hard to have large families. Some people have one or two kids and others choose not to have any kids and have a pet.
Hope you had a fun New Year’s Eve and New Years Day. I am excited that it is 2021 and all the new opportunities we have this year. It would be hard for 2021 not to be way better than 2020. As many people know a lot of things can happen to a family in a short period of time.
If you have money in the stock market then you may feel like 2020 was quite a ride for sure. Especially back earlier this year when the market fell hard and fast. Too bad we can’t predict when that would happen. LOL
December was a fun month since this was the first time we had our folks with us for the whole month to celebrate Christmas and New Year’s. They plan on staying till sometime in March but we would love to have them live with us full-time in the future.
