Of course we really did not have so big of a choice when you think about. I had to find a job, but that is not that big of a deal. Eileen was going to take the position, which came with an enormous raise and all sorts of other perks. They even hired someone to help us find a house, although they kept looking at places which are too big. Junior and Alice are both in college, so we did not need too much of a house. We found a small place with ADT in Chicago providing a really advanced home security system with a bunch of smart home features. It has the app that allows you to look at what is happening at your front door on your phone. In truth we are not really in the city itself, or at least not in the part of it where you really do not want to be. Continue reading We Are Settled in Up Here
I have been in Detroit for about six weeks now, and the likelihood is that I am going to be here for the foreseeable future, so I went ahead and found a pretty nice place to buy. It was a huge surprise to me that it was so inexpensive, although the reasons are clear one you do a little research. The same reasons inspired me to do more research into home security. That is an issue in the area where the house is, although it is not that big of a difference between there and a thousand other places in the country. For now I got a sign that says that I have a home security system, which I figured was better than nothing. Continue reading I Up in Detroit Now
Everyone wants to think they have the best kid ever. The only problem with that is that no one is perfect. When a parent wants to elevate their child, then they are not seeing the faults that might be right there in front of them. For my son, he is great at a lot of things, but he was struggling with two of his classes at school. He was able to get private tutoring from one teacher and it helped him, but he asked me if we could look at the tuition centre at Bukit Timah for his physics tutoring.
He said that he was just not getting what the teacher was trying to get through to him at school, so he did not see the benefit of private tutoring with that teacher. I agreed, and I looked at the program that he was interested in. I was impressed with what I saw, especially the results part. Nearly every single student has or had praise for the tutor, Mr. Continue reading My Son Took Initiative for His Grades
I’ve tried many products that I’ve seen on television before, from the simplest kitchen items, to the most advanced teeth whitening products, and rarely have any of them actually worked. I’ve been on the bad end of so many products that whenever I see a new one, I change the channel. When I learned about a product that would help fight hair loss, I was as skeptical about it, thinking it would be as bad as all the other products. Once I actually saw Keranique reviews, I began to wonder if there was actually something to the product.
There were many positive reviews about the product, and each one began to fill me with more hope that it would actually work. The reason why I was so interested in seeing how the product stacked up is because I was going through my own hair trouble. My hair was thinning in various places, and I couldn’t stand to go anywhere without a hat or a wig. The hair was so bad that I couldn’t even get a good comb over. There were expensive procedures that I could try to restore my hair, but I couldn’t afford any of those, even with insurance.
I decided to take the plunge and bought some of the product to try on my own scalp. At this point, there weren’t really many options that I could afford, so this was pretty much my only hope for a chance at having a life that didn’t rely on wigs and hats. Much to my surprise, the product actually worked. My hair started to come back and I cried tears of joy. It was like an old friend returning after being gone for so many years. I could walk outside and have my own natural hair showing for everyone to see.
The company I hired for move in cleaning for Singapore really pulled my bacon from the fire, let me tell you. It all started when I got an amazing deal on an apartment in the area of the city I’ve been trying to move into for years. The problem is that the price range for most of these apartments is pretty steep, and even then lots of people want to move into the area so there’s practically a waiting list to get into any of the buildings in the area. I couldn’t believe my good fortune when I finally got in.
The landlord offered a rent I couldn’t believe, but I didn’t pay attention to why the rent was so low. Even more stupidly, I went into the deal sight unseen. He mentioned something about how he was cutting the rent because I’d need to find someone to clean the place up since the last renters left a real mess behind. Continue reading Cleaned Up a Real Cesspit
I had tried so many different ways to lose weight. I even tried cutting back on the things I was eating as well as an attempt to increase my exercise. As much as I tried that, it was just really hard to lose the weight. I was not sure how I was going to ever be successful with it, especially when it seemed like every new product or program was just not cut out for me. I did not give up hope though, which is a really good thing. I discovered a Fat Diminisher review after looking at a weight loss forum online.
When I started reading about how it worked and why it works, I was convinced that I had found something that might actually work for me this time. Continue reading I Was Inspired to Lose Weight
I have been wrong about many things in life, yet it takes me awhile before I make changes based on what I learn. One of these lessons was pushing ahead to try to run my business without some outside help. I read an Inbox Blueprint 2.0 review that caused a lightbulb moment for me when I realized that I was handling my email marketing in a pretty unprofessional way. I purchased the product so that I could learn more about handling the things the right way. There’s no telling how much money I lost by not learning how to reach out to potential customers better, but I do know that my business had been floundering for some time.
I decided to sell products online after seeing how much acquaintance of mine was making by doing it. He had gone from being broke and scraping together money to keep food on the table for him and his family to going on vacation to Europe in a short two year time period. Continue reading It Took Too Long for Me to Realize That I Wasn’t Marketing My Business Properly
I was embarrassed when I would go somewhere where I had to sit. I am not a vain person, but I had to carry one of those air pillows around because it hurt me so much to sit down. I had been to a doctor about it, but he could not find anything wrong and told me to exercise that area more, which made no sense to me. Instead, I purchased the air pillow and took it everywhere. Someone at church saw it and told me to look at some chiropractors in Santa Maria if I did not want to cart my pillow around everywhere.
I told her I had already been to a doctor who said he could not help me, but she told me to not discount her suggestion so easily. Continue reading A Chiropractor Helped Me with My Pain Issue
I knew that I needed to get into better shape, so I decided to take up jogging. I had never jogged before, but I figured it was an easy enough sport to figure out. How wrong I was! I had no idea that this is an activity that one can really get injured in without the proper warmup first. When I tell people that I had to start seeing a Santa Barbara chiropractor because of my new interest in jogging, those who know me very well are not too surprised that I jumped into this without educating myself first.
I just walked out my front door that first day and started jogging down to the store. I did not do any stretches, and I did not warm up. My muscles were not ready for this kind of assault on them since I was normally a couch potato at that point in my life. My muscles were screaming within a couple of blocks, but I thought that was just fitting the motto of no pain, no gain. It was actually more than that though. Continue reading How Jogging Landed Me at the Doctor’s Office
