Curt and I agree on many things such as dinner plans, vacation destinations, and child rearing techniques. This might be why we are such a good fit as a couple! This episode, Get Your S#!t Together, is one of those decisions. We both believe it is probably one of the most important episodes of our AdventuRetired anthology because we are discussing the legal papers ALL of us should have in place for our loved ones after we are gone and before!
At AdventuRetired we tell you "don't sit too soon", "gray and away" "live your retired life", and many other inspirational quotes, but this episode is more than a quote. This episode talks to us and tells us that we need to get our S#!t together earlier than later in this wonderful life of retirement. We are all mortal and our family members deserve our preplanning in the times ahead.
