Off to a GREAT week!

February 22nd, 2011 at 09:22 pm

This was my "Monday" since I was off yesterday and it started off a little shaky. But things drastically improved as the day wore on and I quit working (I work from home) a little early so I could go to my daughters' (2 daughters on the team) high school basketball playoff game. We played a great game and are now advancing to the regional finals! This is a great accomplishment for our girls - the fartherest we've gone in the 4 years since my oldest (now a senior) made the varsity team as a freshmen! So proud of both of my girls & the entire team!

Annnnyway, we play our next game later this week but not sure who or when just yet. Fun times -- win or lose this will be a great week just b/c they've accomplished so much this year :-)

On another happy note, my oldest daughter turns the big 18 tomorrow! I can't believe she is a grown woman already! She's a great kid - very good heart, sensible & mature, not given to the dramatics and quite funny on occassion. I'm extremely proud to call her my daughter and I can honestly say she is a better person than me in some regards (doesn't let rude comments or gossip bother her!).

I'm proud of all my kiddos for sure but it is so strangly funny how they all turn out so different. All 3 of my girls come from different planets - they look like but that is where the similarities end for the most part.

The one thing I am going to work on with all my girls is teaching them to manage their money better than I have. Over the years my husband and I have made good money but we have mostly spent what we made, saving very little. Sure we have 401K's and pensions but there should be no reason for us to be in debt or not have more savings than what we have. VERY big shame on us...but we're getting better :-)

    My due-diligence for money happened a few years ago, and as a result, my kids (13,12,8,6,5) make good economic choices and even the natural spenders donate regularly. And my kids know that we don't do "debt" - we have a list of things that our "extraneous" fund takes care of, though it might not be as fast as they'd like.

    I know what you mean about kids being completely different from each other, even from the same parents... we only have two little girls, but the baby is so different from her sister! It leads me to wonder about what they will be like as adults. They are both very sweet kids, though, and I feel very blessed. Good luck with the financial improvements! I know that they really do lead to some insurance of greater peace of mind...
