I No Longer Need Hair Accessories

It is really hard to be a young women with thinning hair. If anyone would have thought I would have thinning hair in my early 30s when I was younger, they would have been laughed at. The reason for this is because I had such thick hair when I was a kid. It was hard to manage at times because there was just so much of it. It did not matter if I wore my hair long or short, it was just super thick. I finally consulted with an aesthetic doctor because I wanted to find out if there was anything that could be done to get my thickness back at least a little bit.

I used to be able to pull my hair up in a ponytail, and none of my scalp would show. Continue reading I No Longer Need Hair Accessories

The Best Priced Laptop for Cyber Monday

My daughter has been asking me for a new laptop for several months. I have been telling her to ask Santa Claus, but she just rolls her eyes at me when I say that. I guess that might be because she is 14 years old? Anyway, I had already planned on getting her one even before she started asking me, because hers is several years old. I had to use it not long ago, and I even grew frustrated with how slow it is. I know there are going to be some cheap Cyber Monday laptop deals, and I am just biding my time until then. Continue reading The Best Priced Laptop for Cyber Monday

An Apartment for My Dogs and Myself

I already knew what I wanted as far as actual apartments in Tallahassee FL. I needed a one bedroom unit that is large enough to where I don’t feel like I am living in a box, but I was not sure what I wanted beyond that. I knew that whatever place I chose would have to allow dogs, because I have two that are family to me. When I came across Parkway Square, I knew that it was everything I could hope for, and then some. First off, the apartment itself is quite spacious.

The apartment I had been living in was barely over 500 square feet, but the one that I moved into at Parkway Square is well over 800 square feet. That is almost twice as much room! Also, they allow dogs, and even have a bark park for them. That is probably my favorite feature of everything, because it means they can both run off leash without me worrying about them getting away since the enclosure protects them both. Continue reading An Apartment for My Dogs and Myself

I Am Much Happier in My New Apartment

I was so happy to finally start looking at nicer apartments for rent for Tallahassee FL. When I first moved here, I had just graduated from college and did not have a lot of money. Because of that, I really had to settle for a very small apartment in a section of town that is not the best. I knew that if I worked hard and made good choices, that would not be my life for long, and I was right. I did end up saving for a couple of years so I could pay off some debt, but then I decided it was the right time to finally move into a nicer apartment.

I knew that I was going to look at Tally Square first because it is located just a couple of miles from where I work. I pass it just about every day, and I have always been impressed with how clean it is. Continue reading I Am Much Happier in My New Apartment

It Took Me a Long Time to Do the Right Thing

It took me decades to do something about the bad marriage that I was in. The older I got, the more uncomfortable I was thinking about spending my remaining years in a bad situation. Age is what made me act to do something about calling a divorce lawyer in Schenectady NY to end my marriage. I had married very young, and I didn’t really know what I wanted back then. I didn’t really know what to look out for and stay away from at that time. Now that I’m older, I know exactly what I want.

I fell in love with my husband when I was only 21 years old. At that age, I didn’t feel like I knew everything there was to know. Continue reading It Took Me a Long Time to Do the Right Thing

Our Future Looks Pretty Exciting Now

I wanted to move far away from everything I had ever known. My two young daughters really didn’t care where we lived because they were just too young to understand certain things. I sat down and thought long and hard, and that is when I knew that Vegas was going to be our fresh start. I work from home, so I would be able to work from anywhere, regardless of the location. I went online and started looking at Las Vegas apartments in Summerlin after finding out that was a good neighborhood to raise two young girls.

Even though neither one of them are in school yet, I still checked the school system to make sure it was a good place for them to get a quality education. I was impressed with everything that I read, so I went ahead and looked at a few of the apartment complexes there. While most were nice, none of them could really compare to what Palms at Peccole Ranch was able to offer us. I was able to find a nice three bedroom apartment that both girls really enjoy a lot. Continue reading Our Future Looks Pretty Exciting Now

They Just Don’t Understand Technology

My father finally decided to do something about his back pain, so he enlisted my help in finding a chiropractor for treatment. I told him to do a quick search online so that I could help him pick one. There were so many Sacramento chiropractors to choose from that my father just threw his hands in the air and completely gave up. This tends to happen a lot with him and technology. Once we were trying to book a flight online and he just became overwhelmed by all of the information on the web pages.

Since my father had essentially tapped out, I took over and used the computer to find a chiropractor that I thought would be good for him. Continue reading They Just Don’t Understand Technology

A Friend, My Parents and My Teachers Helped Me to See What’s Possible

I was really excited about the life one of my friends lived in the big city when I went to visit him. I wanted to live in the same city, but didn’t know if it was possible. I helped my friend move into a new place, and I got to see some of the luxury apartments in Atlanta Buckhead where he moved to because he took me on a tour. He told me that if I worked hard, I could move there one day, too. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to live there exactly, but I knew that if I wanted a better life, I really did need to move to a large city where there were lots of options to choose from.

I was always a nerd in high school, but I didn’t really apply myself for the first couple of years of high school. Continue reading A Friend, My Parents and My Teachers Helped Me to See What’s Possible

Learning About a Painful Secret

I consider myself to be a trusting person, and that can be my strength as well as my weakness. I thought my former girlfriend and I had a great relationship, but she had been cheating on me. I didn’t suspect a thing until someone told me that my girlfriend had a secret Instagram account and she was posting pictures and videos of her kissing some guy. I didn’t believe it at first, but I started to notice things that would make me think otherwise. I had to see for myself, so I used an Insta hack to gain access to the account, and that’s when everything came crashing down.

What I was told was indeed true. Continue reading Learning About a Painful Secret

I Bought Breast Enhancement Cream Because It Works

I did not want to encourage my sister when she decided to purchase some breast cream to help her grow bigger breasts. I honestly did not think anything like that would work, so I was surprised when I saw her a few months later and saw that her breasts actually were larger. I was beyond surprised actually. Neither of us were blessed with large breasts, or even medium sized ones, but only one of us had accepted that this was the way it had to be. I am so glad she did not listen to me in the past, because then neither one of us would have known about this.

I wanted to look at the same website where she got all her information. Continue reading I Bought Breast Enhancement Cream Because It Works

Stuck Damper Made Our HVAC System Start Whistling a Tune

Our furnace started to whistle. Not a tune, but just a steady whistle when the blower came on. It kind of wavered in pitch a bit, but it was not going to win any contests for being a catchy tune. It was rather quite annoying. We could hear it all over the house, but it was louder in the bathroom downstairs. I called a Sacramento HVAC specialist to come out and take a look. We had not been keeping up with our annual furnace cleanings and inspections. I have been keeping the filters changed and the electrostatic filter clean. It sounded like the whistling was in the ductwork. Continue reading Stuck Damper Made Our HVAC System Start Whistling a Tune

A Shed Made of Scrap Metal

Earlier in the year, I came up with some plans to build a new shed after my old one fell apart. The shed had become rusty and once the roof caved in due to plant debris, the whole thing started to collapse. Initially I was just going to buy a shed from the store and put it together, but the prices were too expensive. After making the plans, I looked at the scrap metal prices and bought some pieces in the dimensions I needed to build the shed. The shed is mostly made of metal, but it features a wooden base held in place by concrete, along with wooden frames for support.

Putting together the shed was a pretty easy job. I had all of the wood pre-cut at the hardware store, so I didn’t have to worry about dealing with any heavy and expensive saws. Continue reading A Shed Made of Scrap Metal

My Boss Wanted to Plant Some Trees

I was not surprised to find out that the lot my boss had just purchased needed a lot of work. He just wanted a large space where he could build his offices and warehouse, which is exactly what he did. When he was done though, even he had to admit that it looked really bland. He knew that first impressions matter, so he asked me to contact a tree service in Nassau County to plant some trees around the buildings and along the driveway. I was really happy that he was going to contract this out, because something of this scale is best left to the professionals. Continue reading My Boss Wanted to Plant Some Trees

Started on a New Project

The boss and I did an inspection yesterday and started to think about how logical it is going to be to work on this brownstone that he wants to buy. Of course the building is really pretty old and the last owner has not been doing very much to keep it up. I spent the day with this guy I know who provides hvac services in NYC and he gave me a quote that makes a bit of sense for us, although it is sort of on the margins of what we were hoping. Obviously any time you get a quote on a job you are going to want to have it be less, but this is something that can be worked around. You just have to accept that the other guy needs to make money or it does not make any sense for him to work for you. We are certainly going in this with the intent of making a profit for ourselves.

I am probably going to get a place set up where I can lay down and sleep. Continue reading Started on a New Project

I Wanted to Be in the Music Business

I love everything about music, which is kind of ironic since I cannot carry a tune. That did not stop me from doing everything I could to have a career in music though. Granted, singers do need to have amazing vocals, which is a mix of pitch, harmony and other traits, to go anywhere in a musical career. But, they do not get to the top on their own. They need others who understand music to get to where they are, and that is why I decided early on to go to music school.

I was not going so I could learn how to carry a tune or sing in the right pitch. Continue reading I Wanted to Be in the Music Business

It is Nice to Have a Simple Helper Tool That Keeps Me Aware

Twenty two years ago, I was married very young and was pretty naive about the world. I had my head in the clouds and did not think much about the fact that you may not be married to the same person for the rest of your life. I was a romantic, and I thought it was that way for everyone. But then I learned that my husband was cheating on me, and was soon alone and single. Now, that I am married again, I am far more savvy about things. To illustrate, I use snap spy app to keep tabs on my hubby with one of the programs he uses often.

I have no intention of making my husband uncomfortable. He has no idea that I use the program, and he really doesn’t need to. But I have children from my previous marriage, and I have a lot of assets of my own that I brought to this new relationship. Continue reading It is Nice to Have a Simple Helper Tool That Keeps Me Aware

Helping Those Who Gave Their All

When people hear about veterans charitable organizations, I wonder how many are thinking of the men and women who come back with physical wounds. They definitely need our help and support. After all, they were overseas fighting for our freedom, so we need to do all we can to show them our gratitude. However, most of the wounded who come home are hiding their scars inside them. Think about it. These men and women have seen things that we cannot even imagine. We have all seen war scenes on TV programs and movies, but those are fictional accounts.

The real deal is much worse. I know because I have served overseas and seen some of these atrocities myself. Thankfully, I am a Christian, and I have been able to rely on my faith to get me past the horrid memories of what we saw over there. There are so many people who don’t have that luxury though. Continue reading Helping Those Who Gave Their All

Why Buy when You Can Rent Like This?

The Marq in Tampa Florida is the new standard for apartment communities. No longer are apartment communities just a barren piece of land filled with boxes that people live in, now they really live up to their name as apartment communities. Before a developer would buy whatever land he could and build as many box style cookie cutter apartments they could to fill the property, they called it a community but that was the loosest definition possible. You’d be lucky if there was a shopping center nearby or a 7/11 on the corner. Continue reading Why Buy when You Can Rent Like This?

Started My New Job at the Hotel

So I just started on my job and it seems that I am on bed bug patrol at this hotel. The manager taught me how to figure out if there are bed bugs in a room and so they send me in the room as soon as one of the guests leaves. The fact is that just about every person who checks in could be bring bed bugs in their luggage. You do not want to wait until you have a full blown epidemic. Of course we pay for bed bug removal services and that is who you call if the room has bed bugs. Continue reading Started My New Job at the Hotel

Finding an Oceanside Apartment for Life out of the Military

When my husband was honorably discharged from the Marines after a lifelong career, we had already fallen in love with living in California where he had been stationed at Camp Pendleton. We knew there was no way we could take the winters of our home state of Iowa again and began to check out luxury apartments in Oceanside CA for a new place to live.

Oceanside offered the very best of both worlds for us. Close enough to the base for my husband to drop by and visit friends and far enough away that we weren’t living in the camouflage world of military housing. Continue reading Finding an Oceanside Apartment for Life out of the Military

An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me

I am a pretty quiet person. It is not so much that I am shy though. I just tend to stick to myself, so I wanted to find a place to live that would not have a lot going on there. I prefer quiet areas where there is not a lot of noise, so I did a search for apartments for rent in Colton CA that had positive reviews about the quiet setting of each one. When I looked at The DIstrict, I knew that it was the one that I wanted. It looks very low key but it is extremely modern, making it perfect for me. Continue reading An Apartment That Feels Like Home to Me

I Have Been Dog Sitting

Of course I have been looking for my own place for a bit, but the apartments for rent in Mission Viejo that I have found are usually too expensive. If I could find a roommate that probably would be something that I could manage. You usually find that it is not really that much more for a two bedroom apartment than it is for a single bedroom place. Obviously you would be splitting the cost and you would generally end up paying about three fifths as much. Some of the time it is barely more than half as much, but that would be uncommon. If you had a three bedroom place, then you could get an even better bottom line. However the problem is that you can not just go out and pick some random goof off the street corners. The person that you pick needs to be someone who can be trusted. They need to have a job and they need to keep it as long as you require him to pay his share of the rent. Continue reading I Have Been Dog Sitting

I Don’t Want to Live Anywhere else

I knew that I was going to look at luxury apartments for Atlanta GA, and I was thrilled to see that there were several for me to choose from. I was not worried so much with the location for work or anything, as I know that is a huge consideration for a lot of people. I used to be the same way, but I am a telecommuter now. That has made life so much nicer for me, and I love working from home. It has also been very profitable for me, which should be obvious since I am moving up to a much nicer apartment.

What I mainly wanted was a nice apartment that made me feel really good inside of it. I have lived in a couple of dumps, but most of my former rental houses or apartments have been on the average side. Continue reading I Don’t Want to Live Anywhere else

I Am Still Moving My Stuff

Of course a lot of the things I had were not really worth the effort, so that stuff I gave away or I left it on the curb for anyone that wanted it. I ordered some new stuff from a place called New Futura in singapore and that was a lot easier for me since they were happy to put it in a truck and bring it to my new place. In fact I just had to set a time and they rang the bell and sat it all down where I told them to. Of course I am on the 13th floor of a big building and so that makes it pretty tough to move big stuff. I went to that over the weekend and a lot of people were not too happy with me. I had to wait to find an empty elevator and then people would stop us on their floor and find out that I was in there with my buddy and a big load of my stuff, so there was not any room for them.

One time we almost had some of my stuff take off without me. Continue reading I Am Still Moving My Stuff

A Party Bus for Her Wedding

When I was looking around online for a place to rent a limo for my daughter’s wedding, I came across an about.me – limo rental article that really spoke to me. I am a single mother who has raised four children, so I really like it when I see other women succeeding in business, just like I did so I could give my children the life I felt and still feel that they deserve. When I saw this page and started reading about how this woman helped build this limo company, I knew that it was the company I wanted to use.

The first thing I did was go to the website of this company so I could see the fleet that they have. In the article I read, she discussed the different types of vehicles, like the Humvee limos, the party buses, the stretch limos and more. Continue reading A Party Bus for Her Wedding
