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 »

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 »
