When my husband died, I felt like I didn’t know where to start. I suddenly had to focus on so many things without his help. He ran a property management business and I needed to do something quickly about stepping in to take care of things. With one of his tenants moving out, I knew that I needed to call someone to do post tenancy cleaning for Singapore property management owners right away. A new tenant was scheduled to move in just two weeks later, and I knew that I the place needed to look perfect. That was the first thing that I needed to do while I figured everything else out.
I never had any interest in my husband’s business. Continue reading There is So Much to Do when You Suddenly Need to Manage Everything Yourself
I moved to Singapore with my parents when I was 18 years old. I had just graduated from high school. I wasn’t sure what to do with my life just yet. I also knew that I was not ready to live on my own, and it would have been really tough to do so without my parents. So, they invited me to come with them. Once there, I needed a job quickly. I got a job with one of the regular cleaning services in Singapore that hires people to clean apartments. The nice thing about it is that everyone who works with me speaks English so that helped me to feel comfortable quickly. I had no skills to work in an office yet, but I knew that I could handle this job. It also helped me to bring in money while I figured out what I wanted to do in life.
I have always wished that I could be more like other people who have the ability to make firm decisions quickly and know what they want to do in terms of a career. I have always lagged behind in that category. When I was back in the US, I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to do after high school. I knew that college was a must, but I had no idea what I would want to choose for a college major. I felt like I needed more time to think it over. That’s when my parents told me that my dad had been offered a job overseas. I was nervous that they would leave me behind, but then they asked me to come with them.
I think that my parents wanted to keep watch over me and that is why they asked me to move so far away with them. My mom worries about me a lot, and my dad has always worried that I would not make it in life financially. However, after we moved and I got my job in Singapore, I found that I really excelled at working with the company that hired me. I caught on to everything so quickly and I enjoy the work.
It was really hard on me to watch my parents growing older. I didn’t live near them, so I only came home when I got a chance to get away from work a few times per year. They are seniors, and they were always complaining about how they ached and had trouble getting around. I asked them if they would be willing to visit a Camas chiropractor for some help with both of those things. The both readily agreed to it. My mom was excited. One of her friends goes to one, and my mom said that she had always wished that she could, too. I told both of them that I would pay for it.
When my mom and dad came home from that appointment that I had made for them, they both raved. Mom said she was really tired of all the different painkillers that she’s been given at her doctor’s office, and she really likes that the chiropractor offered a variety of ways to help manage her pain without drugs. Dad said that he was told that if they keep coming back for more appointments, the chiropractor’s plan was to help them to be as pain-free as possible so that pain management would not be at the top of their needs. I was really pleased about this.
Both of my parents are on a fixed income, so I know that they struggle to pay for most things outside of bills for their basic needs and their food. However, I do my best to help out with money any time that I can. So, I bought gift certificates for both of my parents that would give them each a full year’s worth of visits with the chiropractor. They were so happy. They’ve both been going for about 6 months now, and they say that it has rolled back the years for them in terms of helping them to get on the road to feeling so much better.
When I decided to travel abroad for several months as part of a new position at work, I knew that it would be foolish to keep my apartment. I would end up paying for several months of rent plus all of the utilities. If the apartment had any sentimental value, I would have done that. As it was, I didn’t mind looking for a new place to live in when I returned. I did need to find a facility for storage in Orillia because while I did not have an attachment to my apartment, I did to all my belongings in it.
I actually did not have a lot of furniture, but I had a lot of other things. I have a huge book collection, plus the bookcases that they are in. I also have a desk, a small couch, and a dining room table. I was not putting my bed in storage since my sister was in need of one. Continue reading They Are Storing Most of My Possessions
I was so ready for a new beginning. I had been living a very isolated life for the last six years due to my marriage to a very jealous man. I knew that when I divorced him, I was going to have to move far away if I wanted to have any peace and quiet. When I talked with my mom about it, she is the one who suggested that I look in South Carolina. I thought that was a great idea so I searched for luxury apartments for rent in Simpsonville SC.
The two of us used to take summer vacations there because it is just a gorgeous state. The weather is perfect in the summers, and we had always had a good time. Continue reading I Am Loving Every Minute of My New Life
I was not happy about having to find a new place to live. My landlord told me that he wanted to do some renovations though to prepare the house I had been renting for sale later on that year. I considered purchasing it myself, but the asking price even before the renovations was out of my league. I knew that I would not find another house to rent at the price I was paying, because I had gotten such a fantastic deal on it. I did a search for apartments in Lewisville TX after deciding that my best bet would be to find an apartment complex that is not too far from where I work. Continue reading At First, I Did Not Want to Move
Of course that is not exactly true, but of course I am looking for a place to stay and so I search on the web for apartments for rent for 78230, I found a place on Vance Johnson that I really liked, so I checked out the pet policy there. They allow you to have up to two pets, a dog can not be over 75 pounds. Of course that is the same size as a ten year old child would usually be. At any rate they let you have dogs, but you have to give them three hundred dollars it seems, that is in addition to a deposit that is just as large. Then after that the pet rent is fifteen dollars per month. Continue reading My Dog Has to Pay Rent
After having the opportunity to live in many different places all over the country, I have finally decided where my next move will be. I have been searching for apartments in far North Dallas, because my best friend just moved there. She found an apartment about six months ago, and she told me that she has loved every minute of living there. I can really sense the excitement in her voice when she talks about her new home, and it really makes me want to move there as well. I’m fortunate in that my job allows me to work remotely, so I can really move anywhere I want to and continue at my current job.
So far, my apartment search has consisted of browsing apartment homes online. This has worked well, and I’ve narrowed down my focus to one property in particular. Continue reading Moving to a New Town with My Friend
I have the schedule together already, hoping to catch the weather when it is good. That is a poor thing to count on so of course I am going to come prepared for all sorts of weather. I have been looking at how to find a car rental place that has what I need, because obviously I can not rule out sleeping in the vehicle if it is what seems best. I do not wish to do it that way, but if it is really cold that would be an option. Continue reading Planning a Hiking Trip to Scotland
I spent the day scouting locations and working out what I am going to do. I found an apartment at a place called Carrington Ridge They transferred me to the branch office in Stockbridge GA and I have sort of become the second in command there. It looks like they think I might be the guy there before too long. The writing is on the wall and even I can see it. Their guy here is getting ready to go out on his own and he is not really making a huge secret of it. Of course he is going to see it like this. The guy has been doing this stuff for three decades, probably longer. He is connected to everyone and he does not really need the company all that much. He can operate as an independent selling for whoever gives him and the client the best deal. Then he can turn around and spend half of his time with the grand kids at the beach or at the lake.
At any rate it would be a problem for me to do the job coming in from the cold like this. The thing this guy has going for him is important. He has been around here beating the brush for decades and decades. He knows these people and they know him. The value of those relationships can not be over valued. I would be going up against him and the chances are that he shall probably be able to sell every thing that I can sell, along with all of the competing products. He is not going to be cut off from the company. He is going to be tight with all of the people at headquarters and they will take any business that he brings them with open arms. Why should they not? It is all the same for them.
My sister sent me some pictures of the new apartment complex that she and her husband had just moved into. She told me to click here to look at their version of paradise. I honestly thought she was exaggerating but it didn’t take long for me to see that it was a pretty accurate portrayal. She had been trying to convince me to move down to North Carolina for a while, but it was pretty easy to resist since they were working all the time and didn’t live in a super nice area.
Now that they are living in such a great complex, I figured I should at least visit to see if I should move closer to where the rest of my family is. Continue reading My Sister Lives One Minute Away
I used to move around a lot when I was first living on my own. I would quickly grow bored of wherever I was living and would soon want a change after being there for about 6 months to a year. But now, I live in a nice place that I never grow tired of. I pointed the website out to everyone I know and tell them that they should rent here if they are looking for a nice, safe and beautiful place. I really like the thought of many different friends moving into the same complex that I do. I think that we would all have a lot of fun together. So far, two different friends have moved into nearby units!
I used to ask myself over and over why I would get bored with so many things. I didn’t just get bored with the places I lived in, I was bored by a lot of things. it took me some time to realize that I like nice looking things. I like good design. Continue reading I’ve Found What Makes Me Happy Now
My dog and I just drove across the country in order to get to our new home. I’ve been checking out apartments in 30318 for some time now. The biggest challenge for me was finding somewhere that accepted pets, but I finally did. Not only that, but it’s a great place. I think that part of my success in finding this place was luck, but a lot of it was perseverance on my part. I would not give up until I found the perfect place.
I can understand why a lot of apartments don’t love pets. However, I consider myself to be a responsible pet owner, and I would never damage an apartment. I’m still very happy that I finally found a place that was not only accepting my dog, but extremely inclusive as well. Continue reading Finding a New Apartment with My Dog
I was never impressed with your average run of the mill kind of apartment. You know the ones. You walk in and there is a small kitchen straight ahead, a small living room just to the left, a bathroom down the hall on the right and one or two bedrooms. If your move to the apartment next door, it is just a mirror image of yours. So, being bored one night in my apartment I looked for newer apartments for rent in Tampa FL. I found what I consider to be a place that was deigned and built just for me.
The first thing I spotted was the totally tricked out gym. It had stuff for weight training, cardio and even all kinds of climbing stuff throughout the gym. I almost missed it, but my eye caught these two things jutting out from a framework above the gym equipment that is obviously for training to climb and hang by your fingers, hands and arms. This is great for the rock climbing guy in me. This was no posh fitness studio. Continue reading Modern Apartment Homes with All Modern Stuff Yet a Cool Rustic Appeal
I was looking for a youthful kind of community that would be home to professionals who like to stay fit, have a pet dog or two and who are foodies who are into gourmet cooking. This made it a definite that my new apartment would have a gas stove. You are not going to like an electric range if you are really into cooking specialty meals for yourself, family or friends. I found this website that has apartment homes where you can see the Atalanta skyline from the rooftop, but you can enjoy natural hiking trails and other things that are non-urban.
The Encore actually has a rooftop swimming pool that is a saltwater pool. I prefer that much more than a chlorinated pool. There is covered parking and a deck. The apartments have 9-foot ceilings and gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances and those nice gas ranges that I already mentioned. If you are an amateur gourmet, a gas stove is a huge plus for an apartment. Continue reading Apartment Homes with Gourmet Kitchens for the Foodie in You
I have a friend who owns an online business. We were talking about SEO one day when he told me how much he pays per month to have a company manage it for him. Now when he told me the amount, I was a bit taken aback to say the least. He was paying a pretty penny for monthly SEO services, and he does not really do any advertising. I could not figure out why he was paying so much. I looked into a website for my business that was going to provide SEO that fit our marketing campaigns. We did need to advertise, and we had to do it as heavily as we could based on the marketing budget that we had.
Here is the thing I have noticed about online business. Continue reading The Basics of What SEO Services Should Do for Your Business
My parents live 400 miles away from me and my family. We only get to see them three or four times a year. It’s so difficult for us to travel since my husband and I both work and our two children are in school. We just never seem to have the time. Last night, my mother called and told me they put their house on the market and are moving to Charlotte. They’re coming here next week to start looking for apartments in South Charlotte NC. I’m so excited to have them live so close to me and for them to be able to spend a lot of time with their grandkids.
I picked them up from the airport the following Wednesday and took them back to my house. After we had dinner we sat down and discussed what they were looking for in an apartment. So we made a list of their needs and wants. After the list was done we started our research on the computer. Continue reading Finding the Perfect Apartment in Charlotte
I was looking for a paystub generator tool to help me with my payroll needs. I looked a few, but none could compare to the first one I looked at. I was able to see an example of the type of pay stub that is generated, and it looked as official as any I have had from working past jobs. I really liked that it keeps a year to date tally too, because I have some contractors that do work for me throughout the year, and others who only work for me once or twice and that is it.
I was just writing out the checks every other Friday, but I realized that I needed to have better accountability for myself. Continue reading Having Pay Stubs Keeps Things in Order
We made a commitment to eating less early last year. We had begun to lose weight immediately. We got our youthful figures back, and then began working on muscle building. Walking, lifting weights and riding bicycles helped us with that. The next step was eliminating poor food choices from our diet. We started to buy our food from New Century Organic. You see, you can eat less and lose weight, but you need to eat better if you want optimal health. Eating better is now more than just choosing more fresh fruits and vegetables. It is more than just cutting back on processed and boxed foods. You need to fundamentally have a purer food source.
Organically grown food is purer. There is really no argument about that. The pesticides and artificial fertilizers that are in regularly grown fruits and vegetable is not in truly organically grown foods. Continue reading New Century Organic is Part of Our Healthy Eating Plan
I was wrenching a hand jack to lift a steel plate, and I did not feel anything at the time. By the next day my shoulder was aching quite severely. I had to call off work because of the pain. All I did was move my arm back and forth to raise the jack. I thought maybe I was in a bad position or something at the time. I thought I strained a muscle. I went to a chiropractor in Alexandria and found out that I had disk degeneration in my neck. The extra work just aggravated things to the point I was really feeling it now.
I could not find a comfortable position to sit or to lay down. It hurt no matter what. Then my fingers started to go numb. I heard it was nerve irritation, and that those nerves needed to get relief for me to not feel any more pain. Continue reading My Chiropractor in Alexandria Helped Me with Disk Degeneration Pain
