Don't mess with my routine

A mother's musings

I am a creature of routine. I cannot tell if I have always been this way or if I were driven to it by having children.

I find my children thrive in routine - regular meal times, set bedtimes, a structured pattern to the rest and play of their day.  My own children are so driven by routine that even on vacation, far from home, my daughter will ask "Where will we have quiet time after lunch today, Mommy?"

If my two-year-old doesn't nap, my eye starts twitching. And if we don't go to the library on Tuesdays, then the whole day is off-kilter.  

I don't deal well with changes in my structured routine.

Should you convert to a Roth IRA?

By Faith Investment Services
Bluffton, 419-358-4207

Roth IRAs offer many advantages over a Traditional IRA, including tax-free growth potential and tax-free withdrawals in retirement. If your income fits within the guidelines for contributing to a Roth IRA, you can set up an account, make contributions, and watch it grow tax-free. If you aren't able to contribute to a Roth IRA because of the income limits, a Roth conversion of your eligible retirement accounts is another way to have a Roth account. Doing a Roth conversion means that you will have to pay tax at your effective income tax rate on any portion you convert.
