  It's tax time-ugh!-which got us thinking that we might want to engage in some smart financial planning, not for each day, week or month but an overarching plan so we can enjoy each day without worrying about money and what lies ahead.

As we age, many of us have become huge creatures of habit. And when we thought about our habits--eating the same foods with the same ingredients, taking the same route when we walk or run, going to the same theaters and restaurants and often with the same people, we realized we have almost always done things the same way to some extent.  However, we've become more entrenched as we head into year No. 3 of COVID-19.
