How Disappointing would this be for You?

Could you imagine how you would feel if you had to tell your family you couldn’t afford to make the payments on your home and the bank was going to take it away? This would be not only disappointing, but it would also be an embarrassment. Your family relies on you to support them and be there for them, but when ends just don’t meet and you have more bills than you do pay check at the end of the month, you need to figure something out.

What’s even worse is when you’re a veteran and you’re fighting for your country and you just don’t have enough money to support your family while you are overseas. This can cause problems for your marriage and your family in general and that’s not what you need.

This would be the worst thing i could think of that could happen to a soldier and his family. I couldn’t imagine what they’d go through and how they would handle this problem. This would just be devastating if it were to happen to me, so I tried to think of the way I would handle it if it were me.

My solution would be to go to the bank and ask to refinance my home. There are times when you explain your situation to the loan officer that they’ll have compassion for you and will want to help you fix the problem. Believe me, the bank doesn’t want your home. They don’t want to have to do what they’d have to do to find a new owner. They’d prefer to help you fix the problem.

If you’re a current or retired veteran you have options to consider. There are loans out there specifically for you. SO if you need to lower your interest rate and your payment, you need to get with your bank and ask for more information about a streamline loan. When you’re able to get this loan you’ll save your home and your family from disappointment, stress, and frustration.

College Time will be here Soon

Scholarships are a must when your children plan to go to college. The fees are $5000+ per semester depending on the school your child plans to go to and the type of degree they want when they’re done. Most people don’t have $20000+ for schooling, so the only way their children can attend college is for them to get a scholarship to cover the costs.

My oldest son is going to be a junior in high school next month and he’s talking about college already. While it’s hard to believe and doesn’t seem possible, it is coming and it’s coming fast, so we’re preparing now for this time to come. Our son knows scholarships are the only way it’s going to happen. While there are thousands of scholarships for him to choose from, it’s impossible for him to know every single scholarship that’s available.

College is a fun time for kids. It gives them the ability to grow up, yet have fun at the same time. Most know they need to do good so they can graduate and get a job in their field. It’s hard for parents to let go, but it’s also great to sit back and watch your child step up to the next level and grow a little more.

While I’m nervous at that stage and I’m glad I have two more years to go, I’m excited for it to happen and I can’t wait. I also know scholarships are the only way to go and when that senior year hits, I’m going to look for help in locating the best scholarships for our son so he has enough to have everything paid for each semester.

A Car to Play with each Day

You work hard all day to earn money to pay the bills and support your family. When you work hard like that playing is what makes everything better. You can play with 4 wheelers, dirt bikes, boats or if you’re really into it, you can play with fast cars. When you have the speed you can get the adrenaline going and you forget about everything for a minute. If you have a need for speed or for the adrenaline, check out this awesome car I found!
