My Cousin Walter’s New Home

My cousin Walter considered himself to be the ultimate bachelor. He was quite the ladies man. He had girlfriends than my brother and I combined. I wished that I had his looks and talents. Walter never thought in a million years that he would settle down and become a husband, but life happened. He met a beautiful woman named Julissa. Walter fell head over heels with her. He thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world. Recently, they got engaged. They wanted apartments for rent in Jackson MS. They planned to move in together and get married.

Walter and Julissa met in junior year of college. They met in the school library. Walter locked eyes with Julissa and was instantly hooked on her. Julissa was not interested in him at first. She knew of his reputation as a ladies man. Continue reading

I Love That I’m Learning About Other Places Now

Having lived all of my life in New Mexico, I previously did not get a chance to see much of the country that I live in. My husband has changed all that for me. After we married, I moved to his state so that we could look for one bedroom apartments in Wichita KS together. Our two states couldn’t be more different, and I have learned to absolutely love his home state. Kansas is a beautiful place in so many ways, and I will admit that I didn’t know much about it until I met him. He tells me often about the bucolic childhood he had when growing up here, and that’s something I never had where I grew up.

I’ve always lived in a city that seemed so loud and fast to me when I was growing up. Continue reading

We Like Our Comfortable Lewisville, Texas Apartment a Whole Lot

I have liked everything about Texas that I have discovered since we moved here a few years ago. We now live in apartments in Lewisville that we like very much. I like the colors and textures of Texas and just how spread out everything is. I like seeing red stone tile floors and so much stone and earthy materials used in construction. I like the curvy lines of adobe style structures, white stucco and other such looks as well. There is such a mix of south of the border designs with touches of things that trace back to merry old England.

We have a great apartment. The open fireplace is viewable from all sides, and the nine-foot ceilings give you that open Texas feel you would expect. Continue reading

I Found a Luxury Apartment in Florida

Moving to Florida will be a huge change for me. I grew up on the West Coast, and it always lived in that region of the country. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to land a better job, so I decided to make the move and transition to this new area. I’ve been looking at various Tampa Florida apartments online. I found one apartment community that I’m interested in taking a closer look at. This apartment has so many amenities, I think that if I lived there it would be like living in a luxurious hotel.

They have the most amazing outdoor barbecue area that I’ve ever seen. Not only does it looked beautiful with the stonework and cozy chairs, but the grills look like they are state-of-the-art. Continue reading

Moving from the East Coast to Texas Was a Good Choice for Me

When I lived up in the northeast, I had to take an apartment in a big city where I worked. I had to commute by subway, and go home to an apartment that felt more like a phone booth. It was all that I could afford in the city. It had no amenities other than your basic things you need to live. I had to lug my clothes to a laundry room in the basement, and there was no gym or nice common areas. When I moved to Texas, I found North Dallas Apartments that had one-bedroom and more room than the place I was living in, and it cost about half as much rent.

I was able to save a lot of money every month and still have a bigger apartment. Continue reading

I Ended Up with an Even Better Place to Live

The last thing I wanted to focus on was finding a new place to live. I did not have a choice though. The house I had been living in was an older one, and I guess the old wiring is what caused the fire that displaced me. I was able to stay with a friend immediately afterwards, but I wanted to find a new place to live since the house was pretty much a loss. I decided to look at an apt in San Antonio after a long internal debate on whether I wanted to rent another house or make the move to an apartment.

I had made a list of the pros and cons of each, and the pros for getting an apartment rather than another house rental was just a longer list. Continue reading

The Encore is a Fabulous Apartment Complex

I wanted an apartment that had an advanced fitness facility that was open around the clock. I wanted the new fancy treadmills with the media screens. I did not want to see any old and tired gym equipment. I wanted nice amenities, and that was why I was still looking for apartments in 30339 for two solid months since I did my first search. I finally discovered The Encore, and it fit all my criteria nicely starting form the great kitchen.

These apartments are very well kept. This apartment complex is nice from its roof to its sidewalks. Inside the apartment there is a washer and dryer. I never thought I would be able to get an apartment with a washer and dryer before. Some standout features include the 9-foot ceilings and the gas range in the kitchen. Continue reading

Finding a Great Place to Live in Charlotte

When we wanted a new apartment we drove around just looking at what was available in a few neighborhoods we thought we would like to live in. We saw so many places for rent. There were houses, apartment buildings, duplexes and a whole lot more. There were so many places when we searched online for apartments in 30339 that we were overwhelmed with choices. I joked that it would be a lot easier if there were only two places other than where we lived that were for rent. Choices are nice, but it makes your search for the perfect apartment a bit tedious.

We kept on looking online, and then we would go and take a look at the places on a Sunday drive to see if it really looked like the pictures that were posted. Continue reading

I’m Going to Live on My Own and Take Some Time to Think

Living with my girlfriend turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be. I had to find a place of my own, and I finally bit the bullet and began looking at various South Charlotte apartments so that I could make that happen. I had spent too long in a bad relationship once before, and I was not willing to do that once again. I deserve better than to be disrespected over and over again. I’m not a perfect person, but I do all that I can to make sure that I don’t hurt other human beings. It was time for me to move on and be on my own or find someone who isn’t a problem.

The backstory is that I spent five years in a bad relationship prior to this last relationship that I left. I should have left much sooner, but I was trying to make things work. It took me a long time to realize that I can only work on and control myself. I can’t get other people to change when they don’t want to. Continue reading

Working Toward Something Good Paid off

When my wife called me that she was getting a raise at work, I was so relieved. She’s working toward getting one for a long time, and I have been doing the same. We have been scraping by between the two of us for a long time, then living on semi-adequate salaries. Now, we’re doing really well with her new raise. One of the things we hoped to do was to wait for a year and then look at luxury apartments in Atlanta GA if either one of us got a raise, and now it looks like we will have that chance!

We both think we wasted a lot of time when we were young and first married. Continue reading

Upgrading from a Studio Apartment to a Luxury Apartment

I have been working my way up at the law firm where I have worked for the past five years. Finally, I have been offered a junior partnership. To say I’m excited is an understatement. Of course, along with this promotion comes a generous pay raise. I’ve been living in a studio apartment going on four years now, so I believe it’s finally time for me to look for luxury apartments in South Charlotte NC. I feel as excited as a little kid at Christmas and can’t wait to find my new home.

I already have a few places in mind that some of my colleagues have recommended for me to look at. Continue reading

We Are Blessed with This Apartment

When my sister suggested that the two of us look at apartments in North Charleston to see if we could find a nice one for the both of us, I thought it was a great idea. We were both single, and our children were grown and out raising their own children. We spent nearly every day together, whether in person or on the phone, and it just made sense to pay for one household instead of two. We knew that we had to be very particular because neither one of us wanted to live in an apartment complex that caters to the younger crowds. Continue reading

Considering My Job, Student Loan Debt and My Housing and Transportation Budget

I got a great job just out of college. I had not even officially graduated when I was offered a position at a company I frankly thought I would not ever get a job at. However, I have a stack of student loans and I am not one to let stuff just wait to be paid. I started looking at College Park apartments for a place that was affordable and would cut down on my two hour commute to work every day. That is, two hours there and two hours back! It was wearing me out, especially since we had many 12 and 16 hour days.

Where I work the new people take the brunt of the force of the job as far as any negatives are concerned. I noticed that if you can handle it, you get to move up. Continue reading

Living in Maryland is a Dream Come True

My husband was stationed at Andrews Air Force Base shortly after we were married. We lived in housing there, and I simply fell in love with the area. We have lived in several other places, but none of the other towns or cities quite measured up to Prince George’s County in Maryland. My husband felt the same way, so we decided that we wanted to look at our options there when he finally retired a few years ago. He looked at job opportunities there while I looked at the best apartments in Forestville MD.

That is a neighboring town, and it was one where I spent a lot of time when we had lived on the base. Continue reading

Why Chiropractic Medicine Helps Back Pain and Other Body Processes

i go see a chiropractor to be able to keep working and playing at the level I want to. Things rarely take care of themselves. You usually have to do something to get the results you want. For the things I can control, I do something about it. One thing I can do something about is treating my chronic back pain. I cannot make it go away and stay away, but I can get it treated by my Campbell chiropractor every time it starts to act up.

If you have ever used a garden hose, you are going to understand my analogy of how I look at the causes of my chronic back pain. If you step on or kink a garden hose, the water flow is slowed or even stopped. Continue reading

Quick Replacement for a Washing Machine Motor

Trying to teach my daughter how to do her own laundry ended up with me calling a company who does major appliance repair in Sacramento. My daughter recently reached the age where we decided it would be a good idea for her to start taking on greater responsibilities around the house. This included having her do her own laundry. I work a full time job as does my husband and we simply don’t have the time or energy to wash her clothes when she’s old enough to do it herself. It’s time she started learning how to be independent as well.

So I ran through the instructions on how to use the washer and dryer, how much soap to put in, how to sort your clothes to wash, and other stuff she needed to know. She did a pretty good job with most of it, but unfortunately she overloaded the washer to the point where it burned out the motor. We learned this the hard way when we heard a strange noise and noticed some smoke coming out of the laundry room. She had packed so many clothes in the machine that the motor burned out. She could’ve burned the house down!

My husband took one look inside the machine and immediately asked me to call someone as the repair was beyond his knowledge. I found a company online who fixed all sorts of major appliances and had them send someone over to look at the washer. I was hoping we wouldn’t have to replace it as I needed to wash my work clothes and didn’t want to go to a laundromat. Fortunately the repair guy was able to simply replace the motor with a new one and he did it quickly and at low cost. I’ll be sure to call this company again with any other repairs we need.

I’ve Learned That There is Hope for Me After All These Years

I’d never even met a chiropractor before, much less been treated by one on the day that I went to an appointment with my girlfriend, who needed a little help driving to see her chiropractor in Philadelphia. My friend even let me come in during her visit to see what happens during treatment. I was fascinated by everything that I learned that day, and I wondered if it was something that could help me, too. At the end of the appointment, I told her what had happened to me when I was in school many years earlier.

Back in high school, I was really active. I was in a lot of clubs and I was on was on a few sports teams. One day we were outside playing soccer on a rainy wet day. I slipped in the mud and landed on my back. I had fallen many times prior to that, but on this particular day I struggled to get back up. Continue reading

Swift Help Was Needed So That I Would’t Be Fired

For the first time in 20 years of working, I realized had a good chance of being fired from my job. It was embarrassing. I know of people who have been fired, but I had never been fired from anything. I always make sure that I do what’s necessary at any job that I’ve had in order to pull my weight. But I tripped and fell when I mowed my lawn one weekend, and the pain just continued on for four weeks after that. I finally ended up going to see a chiropractor in San Jose after about another four weeks of suffering.

My boss never told me that he was upset with me. One of my co-workers, who is also a very good friend, pulled me aside one day and told me that she had overheard my boss complaining about how much time I had taken off due to my back problems to another manager. Continue reading

My Mesa Chiropractor Really Helped My Back Pain

I have been to my primary care doctor four times this year due to pains that are popping up all over my body. My back started hurting me all the time. Mostly it was my upper back, but then my lower back wanted to join in shortly thereafter. I was like a symphony of pain at times. My left elbow would ache and ache. It hurt to move it. My right shoulder would crack and pop and ache. If I held my arm the wrong way, I would get tingling sensations in my ear of all places. A Mesa chiropractor was able to relieve me of most of the pains I was having on a daily basis. I had no idea that chiropractic would even apply to my situation, let alone actually be the answer I was looking for.

My doctor told me that all of the imaging could not show definitively what was wrong with my joints and back. However, they could see some damage to structures such as bones. Continue reading

I Needed a New Start

I thought the best way to handle my money problems was to just ignore them. I stopped answering my phone, and I would throw all the bills I could not pay into one pile. I figured I could outlast them, but I was not counting on them having the power that they did. When one collection company threatened to garnish my wages, I knew that I was in a lot of trouble. I was barely making it as it was, so I decided that was the right time to see about a Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer.

I admit that I was ashamed going in there, because I knew that I had brought this on myself. Continue reading
