Share the Pressure to Ease the Pressures
All I can say is to make sure you share these concerns with your children as they may have different thoughts than what you expect.
Trust me, they want you to enjoy your money and time. And they will be there for you if you fall short later. Although I did tell Mom not to go crazy and blow everything in one week or one place!
But she is enjoying herself and feeling comfortable with the decision to live for today and use the funds she has by looking at all of her options and what they will deliver now.
She keeps telling me to share that so here I am giving you a different perspective to consider!
