I Finally Had My First Manicure and Pedicure Here

Posted by Comments off

When I got my mail a few weeks ago, there was an advertisement in it for a nail salon. I had been thinking about getting a manicure in Singapore since I have not had a professional one in years, and this was the motivation I needed to go ahead and have it done. This is one of those things that I kept putting off until I had more time, but I found out that free time can be very elusive so I decided to stop putting things off, including the manicure. I called and booked an appointment for my next day off as soon as I saw it in the mail.

The only reason I had called right away is because I was already familiar with the nail salon. I had never been there, but I had done my homework since I had been planning on going one day. I looked at the different salons that were either close to my home or close to where I work, since either location would be okay with me. Read more…

Spring Cleaning is My Favorite Time of Year

Posted by Comments off

One of my favorite times of all is spring. I know others like it because it means the weather gets a bit better and the world gets a lot more colorful. I like those things too, but they are not why this is my favorite time of the year. It is because that is when I do my spring cleaning in Singapore. I admit that I shop way too much, and I usually end up putting things I barely use in my closets. I have tried to stop my impulse shopping, but it is hard. It also means that my closets and cupboards rarely get a good cleaning.

I have made it a habit to do my spring cleaning every single year, and I go through everything in my condo. I figure if I have not used something, then I can donate it to a local charity store. Read more…

Learning to Manage Chronic Pain with Chiropractic Therapies

Posted by Comments off

Chronic pain is no fun. Sometimes there just isn’t a cure for it. When it first started to bother me, I went through all kinds of medical testing. Doctors wanted to put a label on it, so I got multiple diagnoses. There were some bony spurs on my back and some minor disk damage, but nothing that would explain the amount of daily pain that I experienced. Some days I thought I would never get through the day of work. I started calling off too much, and that was when I tried Camas chiropractors to find a treatment that would at least help me manage the pain.

I was not expecting for the pain to go away completely. I was only looking to see if I could get some help to turn it down a couple of notches to make it more bearable without having to take painkillers every day. The painkillers caused me stomach upset and constipation. Plus, I always felt like I was in a fog. They made me really tired too, and I tried to compensate for that with caffeine. I was a mess.

We Just Got to Aspen

Posted by Comments off

How Annie arranged this I am not really quite sure, but she is a very clever girl and she has a lot of connections. Some of them have something to do with the making of films, although I can not exactly explain how that works. One of her clients is financing movies as a hobby and he rented one of these luxury rentals for Aspen for himself and a large group of people. We got included for some reason, although I could not say that I knew why. At any rate we just went to the movie that he financed, although to be honest we snuck out and went hiking before it was half over. It was what you might call an art film I suppose. It was pretty artistic I guess, but it was also boring. Read more…

I Will Be Living in an Impressive Place That Gives Me a Full, Close-Up View of Beauty

Posted by Comments off

I left work on a Friday night and raced home so that I can get packed for the next day. I was going to fly to another city so that I can try to find a new apartment over the weekend. I just live one state away, but the beach life is what I wanted. There is no water near where I was living, and I missed it a lot. I knew exactly what type of place I was looking for, and I found it in the Treasures on the Bay Apartments that I took a look at on Sunday. I had seen lots of places that I had an interest in, but this was the first place that I knew I wanted to move into for sure.

It seemed that a lot of the places I looked at were a drive away from the beach. I can’t complain about that in any way because I knew that it would not be too big of a deal to hop in the car to drive about 10 minutes to get to the water. Read more…

Living in DC is Pretty Amazing

Posted by Comments off

As soon as I saw Westbrooke Place, I knew I wanted to live there. I also knew that I wanted to have a studio apartment because there would never be anyone in there but myself. The one that I ended up getting is so nice that it is hard to believe that it is mine. I got the biggest one, which is 642 square feet. I know that sounds like a big one bedroom or small two bedroom apartment, but it is actually a studio apartment. It is just jam packed with all the right things that make it so desirable.

When you walk in the door, the bathroom is to the right. It is pretty compact, but that is okay because who really spends a lot of time in the bathroom other than a teenage girl? Right outside the bathroom is a washer and dryer, and a linen closet is next to that. Opposite the washer and dryer is a large walk in closet that has plenty of storage for things other than my clothes and shoes. To the left of the entry door is the kitchen, which is rather large.

Wrist Pain Related to Work Activities

Posted by Comments off

Working in an office environment has caused me to have intense wrist pain over the last several years. I just recently found out that it could be carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a common condition of people who are just like me. When you work on a computer and your hands are repetitively making the same motion repeatedly, this can lead to major health issues. I talked to my employer about the issues I was having, and they referred me to a chiropractor in Sacramento who would be able to help. I was very happy that the chiropractor was located near work, because it would be convenient for me to go there at any point during the day.

When I went to the chiropractor, I explained what was happening and why I thought I was having really bad wrist pain. I told my chiropractor that I felt numbness and tingling throughout the day, and sharp pains in my wrists at other times. My chiropractor told me that the symptoms I was experiencing sounded like they were related to carpal tunnel syndrome. Read more…

I Need to Get on the Transplant List

Posted by Comments off

If you have not ever been on dialysis, then you really do not know what an inconvenience it is and how much of a pain it is. For me there is a really bad side effect in the cramping, because I do that really badly any time that I do not really control my fluid intake. If I can keep my weight gain around three kgs, then I am usually okay. Anything more than that and I am really in trouble. I have been working up for the kidney transplant list and I need a dentist for Denver CO that is going to be willing to accept Medicare. Read more…

Helping Mom and Dad to Not Worry About My Baby Sister out Living on Her Own

Posted by Comments off

My sister was pressured by our parents to move close to my wife and I. She has been on her own for a couple of years. She went to college back where we grew up, and she lived at home with Mom and Dad. I helped her get a job in a division of the company I work for, so she had to move to Georgia. Mom and Dad told her to look for an apartment for McDonough GA to be close to Steve. That’s me. The older brother. My sister is tough and fully capable of taking care of herself. She is an expert martial artist and can handle weapons better than many police officers and soldiers I have met. However, that is their little girl. You know, the baby of the family. The rest of us five siblings are boys. I am just a year older than Trish, but I’m a guy, so that makes me able to watch out for her in their minds. Read more…

Teaching Canaries to Sing Songs from the Wild

Posted by Comments off

We have several different birds. The macaw makes a lot of noise with her songs. She will even say words. It cracks everyone up. It is amazing how she can mimic my voice and inflection so precisely. I have said the same phrases over and over probably thousands of times. She is still picking up on new ones. She is a very smart bird. Our canaries would not start singing, so we found a canary songs CD online. It was what was needed to get them singing like they were in a band.

The wild songs of the canaries are on a couple of different CDs. They can play for over an hour before repeating. Read more…

My Fridge Stopped Working for Me

Posted by Comments off

When something is wrong in my home, I have a Sacramento HVAC company that I typically call. They handle a lot more than just air conditioners and furnace repairs. They also handle large appliance repairs such as a stove, fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and more. This company can also tackle any plumbing or electrical issues, and they also repair pools and spas then they go on the fritz. It is really nice having a company that can handle so many different things, because when something does go wrong, they are usually able to handle it.

When my fridge stopped working a few weeks ago, I prayed that I would not need to replace it. I could handle a repair bill a lot better than I could handle replacing the entire thing. The ironic thing is that my extended warranty had just expired about a month prior to it not working. Read more…

A Quick Cure for Tennis Elbow

Posted by Comments off

I visited a chiropractor in Mesa AZ after noticing I was having issues with my elbow while playing tennis. I guess it’s probably as much to do with my age as something wrong with my playing form. I’ve played tennis for decades and have very good form so I’m thinking it’s got something to do with my age. After you hit sixty you notice all sorts of weird aches and pains that weren’t there during your younger years. I figured I’d sprained my elbow and the pain would eventually subside. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Apparently it was tennis elbow. My doctor deduced as much and his recommendation was to slowly get out of playing tennis lest something more serious occur. Read more…

We Both Started Going to the Chiropractor

Posted by Comments off

When my husband had to see a chiropractor in Campbell CA because of a work injury, I decided to learn more about chiropractic care. It is something we had both obviously heard of before, but neither one of us had any experience with it. I went online and looked at several reputable sites, and I was amazed at what I found out. I imagine that I am typical among people who had never been to one before, not understanding just how beneficial one is to a living a healthy lifestyle.

There are so many benefits to seeing a chiropractor. These are benefits that have been scientifically proven, and it is just hard to not see how a person could know this stuff and not have a chiropractor on their health team. Some of the interesting things that I read about include chiropractic patients having a boost to their immune systems, reduced stress in their bodies and lives, and increased energy. The more I read, the happier I was that my husband was receiving care from his chiropractor. Read more…

I Am Moving from the Dorms

Posted by Comments off

I am getting ready to move out of the dorms here on campus, but I have to plan it all out pretty well and the obvious thing is that I need to pick a good roommate to split the cost of rent and utilities. Obviously the apartments in Tucker GA that I am looking for would be best if it were as close to the campus as possible, although I want it to also be near the restaurant where I work. In fact I got really lucky when I found this job. Normally waiting tables would not be a very good job and if you are talking about the pay check, this job is not good at all. I suppose that most people know that waiters and waitresses make most of their money off of tips. In fact you can make pretty good money if you are working at a place like this one. Read more…

I Am Excited About Moving

Posted by Comments off

My sister knew that I was not looking forward to looking at houses or apartments in South Charlotte, which is where my husband will be working in less than six months. She, on the other hand, loves looking at things like that. She asked me if she could start looking and send me anything promising, and I eagerly told her yes! It was the same day when she sent me the link for http://www.tindallparkapartments.com, and I could see why she wanted me to move on it so quickly.

The apartment complex is not open yet, but it will be by the time we move there. Read more…

How Realtors Can Help You with More Than Just the Paperwork in Getting a House

Posted by Comments off

We took our time moving. The last time we ended up in an area that was not entirely to our liking. We took the time to find a neighborhood where we could put down some roots. We did not want to be moving again anytime soon. We even took the time and vetted our neighbors for any place we looked at. You really, and I mean really, want to know what you are getting into before you move. We also chose from Denver realtors that represented higher-end properties. We were looking for a luxury place to live in Colorado.

Still, even though we wanted a nice home and property in a residential neighborhood, we knew that there could be issues with anything from local ordinances that might prove to be limiting to neighbors that might prove to drive us crazy. So, we took the time and thoroughly investigated each property we were interested in. We once lived in a neighborhood that had four or five water main breaks per year due to old infrastructure. We had no idea when we bought the house. We also ended up having a couple of very loud and obnoxious neighbors. Read more…

I Am No Longer Afraid of the Dentist

Posted by Comments off

I knew when I moved to Colorado last year that I needed to find a dentist. I had found everything else I needed, from a doctor and chiropractor to the bakery and coffee shops that I prefer. I had put off finding a dentist though because that is one the person I didn’t want to have to see. I have not had the best dentists in the past, and that has left me very anxious with anything to do with dentistry. Well, that changed when I had to look up emergency dentist for Aurora last week.

I woke up in a lot of pain, which was really odd because I didn’t even have a clue that was going to happen. Read more…

I Wish I Would Have Moved on and Found a Place More Quickly

Posted by Comments off

I didn’t realize that being on my own would actually be easy. If I had I would have done it years ago rather than staying in a marriage that I should have gotten out of many years ago. One of the steps I have recently taken is to look through a lot of 1 bedroom apartments in Kingsport TN for a place that I could call my very own with my little girl. She’s just a baby, so there was no reason for me to get a bigger place. The one that I found is great and will work for both of us well. I know that it will be nice to come home after work each night and hear nothing but peace and the sounds of my happy daughter.

I married young, and I learned far too late that people who marry young are often not really “grown up” yet. Read more…

The Fire Let Me off Easy

Posted by Comments off

An unfortunate accident caused me to lose my old apartment. Someone was cooking food late at night and fell asleep while the stove was still on. I woke up because I wanted to get a soda from the vending machine in the hallway. That’s when I noticed the smoke and headed downstairs. The fire made it’s way to my apartment and burned some of it, but not my items. I moved my belonging back into my parents house and began looking for some 89129 apartments. I was lucky that things didn’t turn out as bad for me as they did for some other people living in the apartments.

I narrowed my searches down with the help of my parents and we went on a tour of a couple. This was kind of like taking a trip down memory lane, because my parents helped me find my first apartment. I had just gotten out of college and was in a hurry to find a place to live. Read more…

We Got to Nevada Last Week

Posted by Comments off

The drive up here took the two of us around five and a half hours, but obviously Jack is not really afraid of getting a speeding ticket and he would have lost his license for sure if they had caught him a few times. Obviously you are driving down a freeway in the desert and if you are driving at night you can really find places where there is not anyone to interfere. The work up here is going to last at least half a year, so we searched for apartments for rent in Las Vegas before we left Texas. We found a place that fit our needs and it turned out to be a lot better than we expected it to be. When we got there it was hard to miss the fact that there were several dozen really good looking women laying around at the apartment’s pool when we got there. One of them offered us a couple of cold beers and neither of us turned her down. Read more…

Touring an Apartment with Floor Plans

Posted by Comments off

When searching for new apartment, it’s really important to take a look at the floor plans so that you understand just how the apartment is laid out. When I decided to search for apartments for rent in Grand Prairie TX, I made it a point to try and find this information on each website I visited. One apartment community in particular had this information readily available for me. That’s how I knew that this was the place where I really wanted to live. I was able to open up the floorplan, and get a really good view of what my apartment would look like. I can easily tell whether or not my furniture would fit, and in vision what life here would look like.

There are some details that you can see on the floorplan, and their other details that require good photography. This website offers that as well. I was able to take a tour of the property simply by viewing the photos and orienting myself with the community. It was really easy for me to see all of the details that made me feel at home and like I could easily be part of this community. Read more…

I Found My Apartment in Record Time

Posted by Comments off

I had no idea how to even begin looking for an apartment here in Georgia. I did not know the area that well, mainly because this area is so large. I wanted to make sure that I was able to get an apartment in a safe area where I would be centrally located. I didn’t even really know anyone yet to ask them to help me with this either. Rather than get nervous about it, I just went online and did a search for apartments for rent in Marietta GA. Read more…

Moving into an Apartment This Month

Posted by Comments off

I was excited to look at luxury apartments in Stone Oak because that meant my wedding day was getting closer. My fiance had proposed to me before he was deployed, and he just came back for good about a month ago. We have already spent too much time being engaged, so we wanted to get things moving as quickly as possible. He has already been hired on at a San Antonio business, and I work as a dental technician, so I wanted to find a place that is close enough for both of us to get to work without a long travel time involved.

I had already been thinking about the Regency at Lookout Canyon apartments on their website, and I already knew I wanted to live there. Read more…

Getting Our Son Professional Youth Strength and Agility Training to Master a Skill He Wanted to Acquire

Posted by Comments off

Our son started jogging before he was a teenager. No one was sure why. He said he wanted to increase his lung capacity and cardio endurance to be able to run up this big hill on our property. I was about a 200 foot vertical ascent up a very steep incline. It was probably the steepest angle you could walk up without needing the assistance of a rope. It was covered in grasses and some small trees, but if you fell, it could hurt. Watching him run up was scary and encouraging. We got him youth speed and agility training to advance that natural skill he had.

I watched him run up that hill and almost make it to the top before he lost his footing and started to tumble down. I would actually reach out as if I could do something to arrest his fall. He never broke anything falling, but he did have plenty of cuts and bruises trying to master that climb. The first time he made it was like him winning an Olympic event. Read more…
