I Was Always So Tired

by admin

If anyone would have told me that I would feel infinitely better from going to a local home show in the area, I would have laughed. Looking at landscaping options or how to remodel my bathroom on a shoestring budget might be interesting, but it could hardly help my body from hurting so much. Well, that is exactly what happened, in a roundabout way. I had no idea that a Santa Maria chiropractor would be there. I did stop at his booth because I had heard that chiropractic care can help a number of people with different issues, so I was curious what his take on my issues would be.

I have suffered from headaches for years, which was the main culprit. There were some things that were related to my headaches though. I was constantly tired because I just did not get a lot of good sleep. Read the rest of this entry »

I Had a Wrinkle Reduction Procedure

by admin

I am not the type of person to go to great lengths to cover up my aging. I have earned every wrinkle that I have, and I was not ashamed of them. However, a really good friend of mine did not feel the same way. She was 60 years old, and she looked 60 years old. She wanted to retain her youthful looks a bit more, and she ended up going to a aesthetic clinic in Singapore to have wrinkle reduction procedures done. I tried to actually talk her out of it because I just was not sure how natural she was going to look afterwards.

I have another friend who had some plastic surgery done, and her face looks unnatural because of how tight the skin is stretched now. I did not want my other friend to have this same look about her. Read the rest of this entry »

I Need to Find a New Roommate

by admin

I have been looking for a new place to stay and really it has not really gone so well to this point honestly. I found this place that I absolutely loved for a bunch of reasons, but there is no way that I can afford to live there unless I find a roommate. It is part of these really nice luxury apartments in Lewisville TX and the location is almost ideal for me. It would be a good walk to the office, a bit longer than I would like. However you could cut through this park on a bike and be there in about ten minutes. That would probably be fine in the morning, but it probably gets too hot to be riding home around here.

My Son Asked to Move in with Me

by admin

The last thing I expected to be doing just months ago was finding a place for my son and I to move into. He lived with his mom up until we started searching for apartments in North San Antonio and found a really nice one. Our arrangement was working out great for us, but then his mom accepted her boyfriend’s proposal. My son and her now fiance do not get along too well because they are just different types of people, but I am really hoping that changes as the days move forward.

That is not to say I was not thrilled when he asked if he could move in with me. I only had a one bedroom apartment at the time, and there was just no way we could have made that work on a permanent basis. I was near the end of my annual lease, and I was just grateful that I had not yet signed up for another year. That gave the two of us time to look for a place where we would both be happy.

I Am Staying in Dallas for a Week

by admin

It is sort of funny honestly, because it was a really big pain to get in touch with my friend Lonnie to get him to lend me his place for a week. He has a really nice place, luxury apartments in north Dallas TX and the guy is only there about half of the time. When I found him he was in Heidelberg Germany, which I do not know how to spell. At any rate he told me that his mother had an extra key and that she would meet me there. When I got there it was not his mother there. Instead she sent her niece who brought along two other girls. They were in the bar when I got there, drinking shots of tequila and listening. Read the rest of this entry »

I Feel So Much Happier with My Look Now

by admin

We can’t always have what we want. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t do some research to find out if there is hope for you when there’s something that bothers you about your body. And my case I found out that there are pills for breast growth that any woman can take to help get the chest that they have always wanted. not everyone can afford expensive surgery, and not everyone wants to go through everything that you need to go through to have an operation in the first place. I am one of those people didn’t want to deal with surgery. That’s why I learned there are other alternatives.

All of my girlfriends developed so much earlier than I did. It was embarrassing. Lots of kids made fun of me. Guys didn’t want me when I was a teen because of it. My girlfriends joked that I looked flat as a board. I always smiled, but it always hurt me a lot. As a result, I suffered from low self-esteem for a very long time.I even resorted to stuffing socks in my bra for awhile when I went out on dates. Read the rest of this entry »

Flying a Drone Put a Kink in My Neck

by admin

I woke up yesterday morning with a pain in the neck. No, it was not my husband. I actually enjoy that old pain the neck. It really was a pain in my neck. We had purchased two UASs. You probably call them drones. They are those annoying buzzing aircraft that are remote-controlled and are seen flying over neighborhoods everywhere. It was our first time flying here, and I spent the day with my neck bent skyward. That prompted a visit to see a chiropractor in Campbell the next day. We have been traveling in our RV, so finding a chiropractor a thousand miles from home that could adjust me the right way was nice.

I rely on chiropractic medicine to keep this old body going strong. My husband and I are active. We ride bicycles, kayak on waterways, walk for miles with our dogs and now we are certified pilots for UASs. That stands for unmanned aerial systems. The aircraft we fly are unmanned aerial vehicles. The public just calls them drones. You have to register them now if they weigh a little more than one half pound. Read the rest of this entry »

My Furnace Just Stopped Working

by admin

Some people think that the weather here in California is always gorgeous. I know differently though. Sure, we have some really great days and evenings here, but we also get snow, rain, and cold temperatures too. I have never had a problem with my furnace before, so I was not sure what to do when it just would not turn on one day last week. I tried a couple of times, somehow thinking it would just come on! Anyway, I knew I had to find a Sacramento HVAC services company because I have three young children, and I was not going to let them stay cold even one night. Read the rest of this entry »

Planning a Big Night out

by admin

I have decided that it is going to be a good idea to make a big deal out of Anne’s birthday. Of course you can not do that with every date on the calendar, but this is one which usually hits a woman hard. She is going to turn 40 and it is not something that she really enjoys. I have been thinking about how far I want to go however, because obviously we have our bills to pay. I was trying to get a firm quote from a place called Star night – limo services in Toronto, but they do not seem to be all that eager to be pinned down. They want to get all of the details before they tell you what it is going to cost you. Read the rest of this entry »

Apartment Living is Better Than Ever

by admin

It used to be that apartment living was something people did while they were saving for a house and most apartments reflected that fact with their cookie cutter box design. Sure, they started calling them apartment communities at some point but they more of a conglomeration of boxes than anything resembling a community. Today that has changed as many people don’t want the high cost of getting into a house and expect more from the standard box style apartment living. Real apartment communities such as the The Marq Highland Park located in Florida are leading the way to what a real apartment community should look and feel like.

These new apartment communities are real communities surrounded by all the amenities you come to expect when looking for that perfect place to live. Read the rest of this entry »

A Program That Matches My Schedule

by admin

I knew that I wanted to get a diploma in media design, but I had to carefully consider my options. I was raising a family, working a full time job, and I just did not have a lot of time to devote to getting an education. The twist in that though was that without more education, I was never going to get further in my job, and I was struggling financially at that level. A really good friend of mine told me to look at the Orita Sinclair School of Design, New Media and the Arts, and it turned out to be the answer to my prayers. Read the rest of this entry »

Scheduling Help with Maintaining My Beautiful Yard

by admin

Our homeowner’s association has really strict rules about how everything in the community must look. I’m required to keep my yard looking great at all times. It’s difficult for me to keep up with everything because I work really long hours, so I called in a professional. My brother recommended a tree service in Nassau County that he had used in the past. I called them up, and they agreed to come over and give me an estimate for the work that I wanted regularly performed.

I enjoy gardening, but at this stage in my life I really need professional help to keep up with everything. The tree service I contacted was able to come up with a schedule for me on the spot. We talked about what it was that I was looking for, what was important to me, and what I’d like to see improved. Read the rest of this entry »

Getting the Best Price for Scrap Metal

by admin

There are several scrap yards in the region where I live, but I was not sure which one was offering the best prices for different types of scrap metal. I decided to just do a search for local scrap metal prices to see if I was able to come up with anything that way, and I actually did. I was able to find a website that actually has a lot of information about the scrap dealers in my area, and I was impressed with the information that I was able to get from it.

I had no idea that there were as many as was listed on this site, but that is because they have more than what is just in my immediate area. Read the rest of this entry »

Three Tablets for My Kids

by admin

I am so looking forward to November 27th of this year. I know a lot of people probably look forward to the end of November because of Thanksgiving but for me, it is an entirely different reason. November has almost meant Black Friday to me up until last year, which is when I learned all of the amazing benefits of Cyber Monday. That is why this year, I am so looking forward to the Cyber Monday tablet deals for 2017 since that is what I am getting for my three children for their big Christmas gift this year.

I don’t really know much about tablets, but the kids have given me their wish lists a few weeks ago. Since they told me which ones they want, all I have to do is find the best deal for each one. I also wanted to make sure that the tablets they wanted were going to be good enough to do everything they want on them. Take my older son for example. He loves to play all kinds of games, so I had to make sure that the tablet I get him will support that. Read the rest of this entry »

A Great Place to Live in Florida

by admin

My search for apartments in Brandon Florida started nearly three months before I had to actually move. I wanted to give myself plenty of time to find the right apartment because of what had happened to my sister. She and her new husband waited until a month before they were married to start looking for a nice apartment, and they simply could not find one that they wanted. As a result, they had to settle for living in an apartment that they actually hated. I did not want that for me, so I started my search months in advance.

As it turned out, I didn’t need that long. I didn’t even need an hour, because I found out that location really does matter. Read the rest of this entry »

There Isn’t a Thing I Don’t Like Here

by admin

I looked at several different places to live before I finally settled on the South Tryon apartments in Charlotte NC. Actually, settling is not the right way to put it because I love everything about my new home. I just wanted to make sure I was not passing up a better place or a better deal in the same area, but after looking at quite a few I knew this was the best. There are so many reasons why it is the best place to live too. The first is because of the location. It is not that far from downtown Charlotte, which is where I work.

It is also close to places I like to hang out in the city, so that makes it even more convenient for me. Read the rest of this entry »

A Man’s Paradise in Florida

by admin

I found a great little apartment not long ago. I wanted something nice, but I was not looking for something that was all shiny and brand new. I have been in some friends’ apartments that were recently built, and I felt like I was in a gilded cage with a couple of them. That is why I wanted a nice but no so traditional place when I looked at apartments in Temple Terrace FL. Living here in Florida, I knew that I would be able to find something that I liked since there seems to be a little bit of everything here.

As soon as I started looking at The Lodge at Hidden River, I knew that I found my home. It is new and modern, but it looks rustic, which is a look that I really enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »

The Indoor and Outdoor Amenities Are Great

by admin

Looking at the various westside Atlanta luxury apartments that were available last month when I started looking for a new pad to call my own, I was surprised that one stood out above all the others. I knew there were some nice places, which is why I wanted to search on that side of town, but I truly was surprised to see that 464 Bishop is the only one that has everything I want, and then some. The first thing I wanted to look at were the amenities, both inside and out, because I knew I would be spending just as much time outside as I would in my apartment.

For the actual apartment, it is amazing. I have the Lohi floor plan, which is 1,281 square feet of luxury. Read the rest of this entry »

Started to Look for a New Place to Live

by admin

I really did not have a lot of choice about it, in fact my landlord has been trying to get rid of me and the other tenants for some time. He has been working on a deal to tear the building down and then some other real estate developer is going to put up a bigger building. I think that it is New Futura, but that is just a rumor that I had heard when the tenants were conspiring to stall this stuff. Of course we are not in love with the place really, but we have to think about what it is going to take to get a better place for us, and that is obviously more money than we are paying at the moment.

A Mystery at the Parking Lot

by admin

A few months ago I was able to buy a piece pf property for a cheap price. I bought the property to open my own costume shop with handmade costumes assembled by my family and me. While the building was in good condition with a few minor things that needed fixing, there was one huge problem that couldn’t be overlooked, and that was the parking lot. The lot had cracks and uneven concrete everywhere. There was a rumor that the previous owner went crazy and used a jackhammer on it. I needed paving in Nassau County NY before opening the shop, or my customers would have no place to park while they shopped.

I looked on the Internet for any company that could do paving jobs and found a fairly popular one. Read the rest of this entry »

Taking Orders the New Way

by admin

I run a restaurant, and I used to get questions from my customers all the time about whether they could place an order online. I didn’t have any kind of system like that set up, so I always told them no. I talked with some of the staff about setting up a website, but no one knew anything about how to make one. One of the staff came up with an idea to use Massive Infinity mobile app development to make an app instead of a website. I didn’t understand the advantage of having one over the other, because it all seemed like advanced tech jargon to me.

The staff member told me that while the app and the website can be used to take online orders, the app can be more specialized. We started brainstorming some ideas that we could put into the app and came up with some neat ones. We thought of a neat point system that can distribute points to anyone who orders with the app. When the customers get enough points, they can use them to get discounts on their meals.

A Great Place by the Sea

by admin

While searching for a new place to live in Singapore, I became bored with everything I was seeing. All of the residential buildings just looked the same to me. I wanted something that would stand out from everything else, but still be affordable enough that I wouldn’t go broke trying to pay the monthly rent. I found Singapore Seaside Residences and it was the answer to my prayers. A living area with a perfect view of the sea what exactly what I needed in my life, because the view of the sea is amazing no matter how many times I look at it.

The view of the sea isn’t the only wonderful thing about the residence. Read the rest of this entry »

Looking for a Place in Denver

by admin

Jane and I have been trying to figure out if we are going to need the best Denver realtor to help us with the move there. We are in the process of trying to sell our place in Aurora and that is becoming a good deal harder than we would have hoped. Of course her boss is the one who is pushing this, they have offered her a big promotion and that is in Denver. It is not really the sort of offer that you can refuse, but obviously we need to get the money back out of the home that we have in order for the move to be really practical. We have been thinking about renting the place, because that is something that we could actually do in a real easy and quick way. We know a couple who would be happy to do it.

Getting on in This World Without My Husband

by admin

I never thought I would raise my children on my own. My husband and I had so many plans, so many dreams that we wanted to achieve. None of them can ever come true now because he was accidentally killed at his work site. He is in construction, and it was just a freak accident. I never thought anything like this could ever happen, but I suddenly found myself in a world without him. It did not take me long to know that I needed to find a personal injury attorney in Sacramento who handles wrongful death suits because his company thought that his company provided life insurance policy was payment enough for his death.

I know they probably did not mean to be insensitive like that, but that was such an insult. My husband’s death did not just make me a widow. It also left four children without a father. I was a stay at home mom, and I was not prepared to enter the work force to take care of my family. Read the rest of this entry »

My New Home in Canada

by admin

When I started looking at available jobs in my field, I was really only looking at the ones in Singapore. It made no sense to look elsewhere, since Singapore was my home. Notice that I said was, because I now live in another country. Yes, I did immigrate to Canada, but it was not something that I decided to do on a whim. I researched everything about Canada that I could possibly could first. I wanted to make sure that there were other opportunities there for me too should something happen to the job that I was interested in originally.

Also, I wanted to check on their crime stats. Read the rest of this entry »
