A day before Heart's Day I went out to watch a movie with the kiddos. We were supposed to fetch the college boy and the high school boy fell asleep on the coach waiting for me to put on my new shoes.

Coping with Your Aging Parents

Nearly everyone will have to deal with their parent getting old before they have to go through it themselves. Aging is difficult because it's not just the elderly people who have to go through it. Their loved ones are also responsible for helping them and ensuring they live out the rest of their life comfortably. There might even come a time when they can't care for themselves. However, at the same time, it's not always your job to organize your parents lives. Sometimes they're perfectly capable of doing things for themselves. So what is the best way to cope with them getting older?

Money Troubles

One of the biggest worries as people age is whether they can afford to support themselves. Most people stop working at a certain age, hopefully having saved for retirement. But even with funds put aside, do they have enough for everything they might need? Many people plan for retirement but don't think about the costs of care if they can't look after themselves. Is it their children's job to make up the shortfall? Many will say yes, including the law in some places. Supporting your parents financially is sometimes a necessity, but it's difficult to do at a detriment to your own finances.

Let’s be honest, football is probably the most popular sport in the world. It has a fanbase of millions, perhaps even billions. So, you should get your kids to join a local football club. They will enjoy playing with friends and competing for Premier Trophies' football medals. Through the game of football, they will learn to work as a team, be humble in victory, and deal with defeat. This is one of the best sports to get the children involved in right now. Talk to them about it, and have a look at teams in the local area. There might be a team that their friends are already involved in, and this would be the perfect choice.

I love taking photos of our cat Vhea. For one, she has chinky eyes and wonderfully shaped nose and she just loves doing nothing LOL- making her a perfect model.  In the photo above she was kinda sun bathing by our porch. I just had to take a snap before going to work. The rays of the sun and the shadows falling behind her makes me wish I could stay home on a Monday hehehe....
