A Great Tribute for My Father

My father was always a character. Some of my fondest memories of him was when I was a child and he was teaching me about the world. All of it was truth, but he definitely put his own spin on it too. As I grew up, we grew closer and closer together, and he was definitely the best friend I have ever had. His death, though expected, shook me to my core, and I struggled with it for a few weeks until I finally had some peace. Looking at monuments in Morristown NJ for his grave is actually what helped me overcome the deepest part of my grief.

While I will always miss him, I know that he is in my future. We are both Christians, so this is just a temporary separation. I started looking at monuments because I knew that he was worthy of something really nice instead of just the small marker at his grave. I pass one monument store often when I am traveling for work, so that is the one that I stopped at first to see what they have. I was impressed with the variety. There were somber ones, religious ones, funny ones, and everything in between.

I thought that I was going to go with a cross for my father, but I changed my mind when I saw one that really depicted his spirit. Anyone who will be going to his graveside already knows he was a Christian, but not many knew that he really loved to bowl. I came across one monument that had ten bowling pins, and a ball right in the middle, hitting them. It was just perfect, and I knew that I could add an engraved message for people who may come over and look, about Jesus being the only way to get to Heaven, where my father is now. I hope that it leads others there as it brings a smile to their faces.

Tree Branch Versus Metal Car Roof

We live on a block lined with trees on both sides. Over the years neighbors stopped keeping the trees pruned. When the homes were owned by the original builders, there was more pride and dedication that went into keeping everything nice. As landlords took over many properties, the trees just were left to grow. Now they have become a hazard. A branch fell from a tree next door and flattened the roof of a friend’s car who was visiting. Some of us got together to contact a Nassau County tree removal service to see what could be done about the trees on our street.

We were going to speak with our local council about obtaining some grant money to either have the trees pruned or removed. The Nassau County tree removal company advised us that many of the trees had signs of rot and disease and needed to all come down. It would change the look of our quaint tree-lined street, but it was an important thing to get done for the safety of everyone here. I was amazed at what the weight of a single large branch could do to a metal roof on a vehicle. The roof was smashed down until it was pressing on the center console inside the car. Can you imagine what would have happened to anyone that might have been inside when it fell?

When the tree branch was being removed they cut it into cross-section slices. I wondered why they cut it like that so I asked. One of the guys told me to try and lift one of the slices. It was super heavy. It was big enough around to make a tabletop for a table you might use to set drinks on. I was surprised at how heavy that small section was. That branch had to weigh many hundreds of pounds. I cannot imagine how many tons of wood they took out of here when they did remove all the trees later on.

Working at the New Branch Office

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.

The Benefits of Hydro Jetting

Hydro jetting is a process which clears the interior portion of the plumbing pipes.

I Will Call Sloane Residences Home One Day

When I heard about the new Sloane Residences in Singapore, I knew that I wanted to learn more mainly because of the location. Thankfully, I was not in the market for an immediate place to live as I was still living at a leased condo for another year. I knew that I was going to have to find a new place though once the lease was up because it was just too far of a drive for me to get to work. Living at Sloane Residences once it was opened up would put me a lot closer to not only my work but so many other things that I enjoy too, like my family and some of my favorite shopping places. Continue reading I Will Call Sloane Residences Home One Day

You Can Work with Others on Your Idea

My mom told me when I was younger that she wanted to meet with someone that was going to help her with an idea that she had. My mom was going to go and find out if her idea had already been patented. She told me that her idea had already been registered but she still never told me what her idea was so I always thought of things that I could go and make money with. I found an idea for a new app but I had no idea where to go so I found a Singapore app developer that told me he would be willing to go and listen during a meeting to see what we could do.

I Needed Some Time to Get Used to Our New Addition

After our first child was born, my husband looked around at different cleaning services in Singapore in order to find some help with our very large house. I was overwhelmed by having a new baby at first, and I needed some time to settle into my new mother role. We had never planned to have children, so I was having a little trouble adjusting to having one of my own. I had always been so strict with my own life and what I wanted to accomplish. Suddenly, everything was turning out differently, and that was pretty scary to someone who has always been so driven when it comes to my career.

I’ve always been someone who has pushed myself hard in everything that I do. This has definitely been very noticeable back when I was in school and then with work later on. I got excellent grades in school. I won awards. I participated in everything that I could so that I could become an executive one day. Continue reading I Needed Some Time to Get Used to Our New Addition

Improving Physics Scores by Two Full Grades

I have a professional career and so does my wife. However, when our twin children came home from school asking for help with understanding their physics lessons better, my wife and I just kind of stared at one another. Neither of us was big on any of the sciences when we were in school. We skated by learning more how to pass tests than actually learning anything. Being a big proponent of not repeating mistakes to the next generation, I suggested https://physicstuitionsg.com to get turtoring help for our kids.

I had seen the website of Mr. Tony Chee, and I thought that he could help our kids get better at physics. His website states that 80 percent of the cohort are improved by one or two grades. Our kids just needed a boost to stay at the top of their academic games. Continue reading Improving Physics Scores by Two Full Grades

There is So Much to Do when You Suddenly Need to Manage Everything Yourself

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 Knew That Things Would Be Okay After Getting a Job

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.

My Parents Say That They Can Get Around Much Better Now

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.

They Are Storing Most of My Possessions

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

My Sister Lives One Minute Away

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 Am Loving Every Minute of My New Life

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

At First, I Did Not Want to Move

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

I’ve Found What Makes Me Happy Now

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 Has to Pay Rent

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

Moving to a New Town with My Friend

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

Finding a New Apartment with My Dog

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

Modern Apartment Homes with All Modern Stuff Yet a Cool Rustic Appeal

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

Apartment Homes with Gourmet Kitchens for the Foodie in You

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
