My Mom Deserves a Treat

My mom is a waitress, so she really puts a lot of miles on her feet. She loves her job though and has never considered anything else. She has a good rapport with her customers, she is great friends with the owners, and she makes a killing in tips. I can’t blame her for not wanting to find another job, but that doesn’t make the strain on her feet any less. I wanted to give her a gift I knew she would really appreciate, and a Holland Village pedicure seemed to be what she would probably like the most.

I knew she had never had a pedicure before. Continue reading My Mom Deserves a Treat

Working with Other Woman Has Been Really Enjoyable

I wanted to find a job that would entail mostly working with other women and management would be fine with me working there while I was pregnant. I found exactly what I wanted by applying to work at a company that offers regular cleaning services in Singapore to local residents. I ended up loving my job with that company so much that I have now been there for 10 years and have become a manager as well. I am pretty thankful for the owner giving me a chance so many years ago when I needed a job so that I could help myself take care of my new baby that was born just 8 months after I started with the company.

I remember my parents telling me that females who have kids without being married can often find themselves alone at some point. I had been dating my boyfriend for two years, and having kids was not something that was on either of our minds. Continue reading Working with Other Woman Has Been Really Enjoyable

We Should Be Open in a Month

I have been up for almost an entire day right now, the place that does cleaning services for Singapore showed up here bright and early and they helped us get the place ready so that we can work for it to get ready. They are going to have to hire someone to haul off all of the debris and that is going to be next week. Right now we are taking it all out back and piling it up. I am thinking about renting a front end loader to pick it up. Of course there is a loading dock out back and right now I could drive one of them right in the place. Continue reading We Should Be Open in a Month

Say Goodbye to the Old Way of Doing Nail Polish

When I tried my first gel manicure in Singapore, I thought this novel way of making your nails look amazing was something unique to Asia. It was only after I did a lot more research online that I found this is a new way of doing your nails that is sweeping the globe. Who invented this technique and how did they even think of doing something like this in the first place? I didn’t find those answers, but what I did find guarantees I’ll never go back to using acrylics again. I’m in it to win it with the gel manicures.

I never really liked using acrylic polish anyway because I always had a bad reaction to the smell. I’d be halfway through doing my nails and a pounding headache would start up and would last the better part of a day. Then the smell of the polish remover was enough to make me sick all over again. I hated it so much that I’d rarely do up my nails. Continue reading Say Goodbye to the Old Way of Doing Nail Polish

I Knew That I Would Need Ongoing Treatments from Experts

I was in a severe vehicle accident, and getting through physical therapy and learning to walk again afterward was traumatizing for me. When I finally got out of the hospital, I could not wait to go see Concord chiropractors who I had been getting treatment from for back problems for years. I knew that they would be a big help for me with all that I had been through with the accident. It was also very relaxing to go to my chiropractic treatments in the past, and I was looking forward to having that feeling again.

I’ve never really loved driving, and I try not to drive as much as possible. My husband loves to drive, so I have always been so grateful to him because he has always been willing to take me to where I need to go in our car. He is a good driver as well, and I trust him. On the night of our car accident, a drunk driver hit us. My husband did his best to try to get us out of the crash as it was happening. The doctors say that, due to his good driving, I am alive. Continue reading I Knew That I Would Need Ongoing Treatments from Experts

I Am Finally Home from the Hospital

Of course I was pretty lucky that I was with a friend when it happened, because a lot of the time I go out into the back country of BC on my own. The two of us went out with our kayaks and our fishing gear. I took a bear defense pistol, but I was not carrying it when I ran into that bear. Fortunately for me I managed to stay out of it’s way and away from her cub. I still need to find a Vancouver chiropractor because I hurt my back too. Of course it was a pretty good fall that I took, I really thought that bear was laughing at me. Continue reading I Am Finally Home from the Hospital

The Home of Great Music

My friend and I would get together in our parents garages to play in our band. We’ve been a band for two years, and in the winter, we’re going to be releasing our first song. Our parents couldn’t stand it when we played our instruments, because we were always too loud for them. They told us that if we wanted to keep staying with them, we would have to stop playing. Tired of their rules about our instruments, we looked for apartments for rent in Jackson MS so that we would have our own place to make music.

Once we found the right apartment, our parents helped us pack up our things and move. Continue reading The Home of Great Music

Palisades Has Everything Going for It

I am not super picky about where I live, but I do want it to be nice. That really is not a problem nowadays, especially in larger cities, because there are so many newer apartment developments and complexes. They know the only way they are going to get people to live in them is if they offer something really nice that beats out the competition. Because of that, I decided to look at an apartment close to my new job. Click here to look at the features and floor plans, so I did.

I was really impressed with everything that I saw. I am not a very social person, but I do enjoy hanging out at the pool and working out, so I was pleased to see that the pool and fitness center were not just the run of the mill varieties. Continue reading Palisades Has Everything Going for It

A Gorgeous House with a Beautiful View

After looking at quite a few rentals, I finally knew that I wanted to focus just one the Kona luxury rentals that I had seen. The location is absolutely perfect for a family holiday, and I knew that either of the two houses would be amazing for all of us to stay in. When I say all of us, I mean my wife and I along with our two kids, my brother and his wife and their two kids, and my sister and her husband who do not have any kids yet.

We only need five bedrooms even though there are three couples and four children because my daughter and my brother’s daughter want to room together, and our sons want to room together as well. Continue reading A Gorgeous House with a Beautiful View

Apartment Hunting with My Parents

My parents graciously offered to help me find a new apartment when I told them that my current apartment was working out for me. They helped me through the first time, so was very thankful that they agreed to do it again. I had simply outgrown the space that I was living in, and needed to find a larger apartment. I found one location that really stood out to me as being a great opportunity. I invited my parents over, and we took a look at the community website for more information.

My mom was really impressed with what I found. She loved the look and feel of the community, and she was happy to see that there were so many amenities offered. I think that her favorite feature would have to be the fireplace available in select units. I’ve always wanted to have a fireplace, and I am excited about having one in my new apartment. Continue reading Apartment Hunting with My Parents

A Temporary but Very Nice Apartment

Starting over is never easy, but I found out that it does not always have to be hard either. My wife and I are actually very blessed because we were not home when our house caught on fire. We had our twin sons and their dog with us on an outing, so we did not lose anyone, which is the biggest blessing of all. It did mean we had to look at apartments for rent in Rio Rancho quickly though because it was just too inconvenient for us to live in the hotel that our insurance company was paying for.

We definitely wanted another house one day, but we were not going to rush into buying one without taking our time looking at everything. Faulty wiring was the cause of the fire where we had lived, so we were even considering building from the ground up so we knew everything would be right. We still needed a place to live temporarily though, which is why we decided to look at apartments. Continue reading A Temporary but Very Nice Apartment

Love, a New Apartment and a 22-Acre Lake!

I like the outdoors. That is where I met my wife. She was hiking with her dog on a trail I was on with my dog. Usually, a woman would be leery of meeting a guy on a hiking trail, but it was my dog that was the perfect wing man in this situation even though my dog is a she. Daisy hit it off with Brutus, her dog, right away. A few months later, we are looking for apartments for Wichita KS to rent as soon as we got married.

Our families were not too keen on us getting married so soon after meeting. However, how could we not get married? We both were in the same line of work, which is geology. We both liked all things outdoors including fishing. Also, it was like the Twin Lakes apartments were made specifically for us. Continue reading Love, a New Apartment and a 22-Acre Lake!

I Did Not Want to Live in a House Anymore

When my husband passed away two years ago, I just figured i would stay in our house. I could afford it because he made sure I was taken care of with a life insurance policy. I realized I did not like living there on my own. People thought it was the memories, but I actually took comfort in those. I just did not like all the work that is associated with living in a house. That is why I started looking at apartments and finally was satisfied when I looked at www.overlookatcrosstownwalkapts.com.

It is not that I am lazy, but I am also not cut out for yard work and small repairs. Continue reading I Did Not Want to Live in a House Anymore

Finding an Apartment Close to the Airport in Charlotte

I’m a flight attendant for a major airline based out of Charlotte, NC. I live in Baltimore and have been commuting to work for the last several months and it’s beginning to take a toll on me. I’m not the only one in this boat. It seems that the majority of flight attendants commute long distances to work. When we only have a day off in between flights we’re staying in hotels. Several of us have decided to go together and rent an apartment that we can all use so we started looking for apartments for rent in South Charlotte.

Close proximity to Charlotte Douglas International Airport is an absolute must. Continue reading Finding an Apartment Close to the Airport in Charlotte

Finding a Pet Friendly Apartment Community

After driving around town and searching for an apartment for the past month, I decided to focus my efforts online. My schedule is really tight, and so I don’t have a lot of time to search for a new home. One day I was checking my email, and I saw an ad for some new apartment homes in a town near my current home. The ad I saw told me to click here for a move in special. I was intrigued so I did as instructed. I was taken to a page that told me all about what would become my future home.

What immediately caught my attention was the fact that this location is pet friendly. I have a cat, and finding an apartment that accepts pets has been a challenge for me. That’s why I was ecstatic when I learned that this place allows cats. Continue reading Finding a Pet Friendly Apartment Community

We Were Looking Forward to Our Move to Georgia

We were moving to Georgia for lots of reasons. The work my wife and I do was there, and they have much milder winters than what we grew up with. We have vacationed in Georgia, and we like the state a whole lot. We considered moving farther south, but Georgia seemed like a better fit for us. We were definitely upgrading the kind of apartment we lived in, so we started looking online for two bedroom apartments with at least 1.5 baths that allowed us to bring our dogs. I found one place at http://www.ashfordretreat.com that seemed to fit the bill nicely. They even have a lake with a fountain for a nice view from the apartment.

It was not going to be long when a new addition to our family would be born, and she would have a very nice outdoor play area at the Ashford Retreat apartment homes too. The living room of the place we leased is very big. Continue reading We Were Looking Forward to Our Move to Georgia

How an Expert in Healthcare Marketing Can Help Your Practice

Your patients asked you why your practice did not have a website. So, you got a website. Then they asked you why nothing was ever updated on your website. So, you tried to write some interesting articles for your domain. This worked for about a month, then the website languished in the land of no content again. The Internet is no place for a static website any more. You need to keep your customers engaged. Not only do you want them to visit your website for healthcare questions, you want to take advantage of social media. A healthcare marketing expert can take care of all the details of providing weekly fresh content for your website and social media accounts related to your practice, but you need one that has experience in the medical field if you are going to do it right.

The goal should be to have content updated on your website a few times a week or more, and your social media accounts should have at least daily updates, posts, tweets or whatever. It may be hard to see yourself and your practice as a brand, but that is exactly what you are. You do not want some slick pro coming along and grabbing your market share just because he has a healthcare marketing expert that he uses to have a better web and social media presence.

People go to the Internet now to find practices like yours. They no longer look in the phone book. They might see your ad on TV, hear it on the radio or see it in the paper. However, when they want a practice that provides your specialty, they will be sizing you up based on your web and social media presence. You can take advantage of this to build your practice by hiring an expert at healthcare marketing.

I Presented Our Texas Electricity Rates and Facts for Switching to My Stubborn Neighbor

My neighbor said he would never switch his electricity provider. I asked him why. He said that he trusted his provider. I told him that I trusted them too. They billed me for electricity for 30 years at our house and never made a mistake. However as far as Texas electricity rates go, they cost me more. I finally got wise and shopped around for a lower rate. Then he said that the fine print of switching was too difficult. I told him that it really is pretty easy once you sit down for five minutes to read it.

I explained that electricity is charged to you based on a per kilowatt hour rate. That usually is just a few cents per kilowatt hour. However, every home uses enough of them to add up pretty quick. Just burning one 100 watt bulb a few hours a day is going to rack up your bill. Imagine what an air conditioner, furnace or other appliance would do to your bill. I explained that you can do things such as switching to LED bulbs, letting your house get warmer in the summer and colder in the winter to save money on electricity. Continue reading I Presented Our Texas Electricity Rates and Facts for Switching to My Stubborn Neighbor

A Car Accident Changed My Life

I had no idea I would have to hire a car accident attorney in Sacramento after being involved in a pretty bad accident. I thought insurance companies were there to take care of the victims, but I learned that they are there to make sure they get the better deal during a settlement offer. I was in a medically induced coma for five days because the pain was just too much for me to take. The doctors said that this would allow my body to rest, and it would not cause even further stress if I had been awake and had to endure everything while conscious.

My wife told me that she thought those were the longest days of her life, but then she changed her mind on the day they brought me out of it. Continue reading A Car Accident Changed My Life

Drinking Weight Loss Shakes for Lunch

I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist, but I know that losing weight comes down to putting fewer calories into your body. If you consume too many calories, and you don’t do enough exercise to burn off those calories, you will gain weight. If you exercise a lot, and you control the number of calories you consume, that will lead to weight loss. The problem is, it’s often difficult to control the amount of food you put in your body. I absolutely love food, and I have found the best weight loss shakes for me. Even though I really love food, these are just as good.

For someone who loves going out to eat with friends, I thought making the switch to weight loss shakes would be difficult. I really enjoy socializing with my friends and hanging out, and I was afraid that I would have to stop doing that. It turns out that I can still make time to hang out with my friends and lose weight.
