My parents tried to warn me that I was rushing into a marriage with a man I knew very little about. I am ashamed to admit that I was angry with them over this. Who did they think they were to stop my one chance for true happiness? Thoughts like those were rampant, and I actually became distant with them for a short period of time. Fast forward a couple of years, and my mom is the one who helped me find a good Salem divorce lawyer. I may not have appreciated or even recognized their support then, but I did when I realized they were right all along.
My husband did not beat me or emotionally abuse me. He just thought that my place was at home raising kids, and his place was where ever he wanted it to be. As soon as we said our vows, he changed. I became pregnant on our honeymoon with twins. Continue reading
When I decided to open up two additional shops, I was excited but a bit wary at the same time. I knew that this was a good move because the one shop was just too crowded and we were turning people away. I didn’t want to ever have to do that, so I put together an expansion plan to please the customers as well as my employees. The main thing I had to do was find a way to connect all three shops together, which is where Bespoke Software Development in Bradford came into play for me. Continue reading
My daughter asked me a question not long ago, and it got me thinking. We had just purchased a new water filter for our kitchen sink, and she asked me why we don’t have a water filter in the shower. I laughed it off at first, thinking to myself that kids think up the funniest things. However, I started thinking more about it, and it did seem like a valid question. I had no idea if a shower head filter even existed like the one for my kitchen sink, but I made it my mission to find out.
It did not take me nearly as long as I thought it would. It seems that a filter for the shower is something that other people are wondering about too. Continue reading
There are so many occasions and holidays that pop up all the time that require you to participate a bit. Then there are sad events that happen that require participation too. I have always found it interesting that flowers are used for weddings as well as funerals, but I guess that is my philosophical side talking. I use one place for all the flowers delivered in Melbourne that we send out. We are very happy that the majority of the flowers we have sent have been for happy occasions to celebrate.
I like bright floral arrangements that are full of color. I also like ones that are just one or two colors. Over the years I have grown a fondness for the tropical plants in decorative pots that you can have sent too. Those can grow a long time in the container they are sent in before needing separation and repotting. Continue reading
When my cousin died unexpectedly, we were all shell shocked. She was healthy and in the prime of her life, but that didn’t matter to the drunk driver that hit her. Thankfully, she had life insurance, and that has really helped her husband and three children. He is not able to work right now because of his grief, and the insurance money is helping to pay the bills right now. That got me to thinking about myself though, which is why I contacted a Palatka insurance company to discuss life insurance options with them.
I do have a policy through my work, but it is not for much. My wife will be lucky if it covers burial expenses should something happen to me. It is just not something that either of us had thought about before because we are so young. My cousin’s death really hit me hard though, not only because I loved her but also because it made me think of my own family should something happen. Continue reading
I ended up on this site while I was chatting with a girl I know from my computer science class, but it really sort of confused me. We were on snapchat and I was trying to get her to go out on a date. This girl is really super cute and really funny, both of which she is completely aware of. At any rate she was talking about something called a snapchat birthday filter and I had no clue at all what she meant by this. At any rate I tried to look it up and found some web pages, which apparently were charging people thirty nine dollars for some sort of background thing. Continue reading
I have always believed that you get what you pay for. That is why I always hire the best professional for whatever job that I need done. I used to hire handymen to do odd jobs around both my house as well as my company. The work was always okay, but it was never great. That is when I realized I needed to just hire professionals, so the job would be done right the first time. I needed to find a company that did roof repairs for Gold Coast about two years ago when my wife and I decided to build a second floor to the garage attached to our house. We were building over the garage and tying into the gable roof and extension we did years ago on the second floor of our house. Continue reading
I knew that I wanted to go to design school, and I was quite happy when I found one that has a 12 month program. I am a photographer, and I just wanted to be able to edit my pictures a lot better than what I was capable of. I did not need to go to a university to learn this. I looked over the structure and modules of the course before applying, and I was happy that this school would be able to help me in the areas that I was lacking, which would make me a better photographer.
I liked that I would only have to devote three hours a day for five days of the week to it. This would take place in 12 week courses over the course of four terms. I could have taken a part time course, but I wanted to get the full experience. Having nine hours of courses per week rather than 15 meant that I would be missing out on something, and I just did not want that. Continue reading
I can fully admit that I am more than a bit lazy when it comes to taking care of things outdoors in my yard. Whether it is letting the grass get too tall, or raking leaves or taking care of the trees outdoors, I so often let things slide before they became a problem. At one point around six months ago a company employee who is an expert with tree service in Brooklyn NY was next door trimming my neighbor’s trees. He took a look at the very tall ones in my yard and pointed out that mine had branches that were dying and they needed to come off before they hit my car. I brushed off what he had to say as something that probably wouldn’t happen.
No more than 3 weeks after I was given the advice about my trees, we had a really bad thunderstorm. I woke up during the night when heavy winds and lightning woke me up. I remember hearing a loud crash around 3AM, when I was woken up a second time. I wondered if a tree branch outside fell and hit the sidewalk.
The next morning, I went outside and suddenly remembered that there had been a rough storm just hours earlier. I look around, and that is when I saw the 8 foot and very heavy branch sitting just 2 feet away from my car. I rushed over, and sure enough, it had hit the car and bounced off and landed where I saw it. The top and side of my car were severely dented. The paint was scratched badly. The unfortunate thing is that I only had basic insurance on my car, so I was either going to have to pay to fix my care out of my own pocket or live with it. Had I listened to the employee weeks earlier, the problem would not have occurred in the first place.
Normally I’m not much of a morning person, but after seeing a Morning Fat Melter Program review, I changed that habit and started doing light workouts in the morning. The morning is the best time of the day to start exercising, because the body can burn off extra fat better, especially when exercise is done before eating. By using this method, I can exercise while eating what I want and still keep my body looking slim. It sounds like something that people wouldn’t expect to work, but it really does, and my body is living proof of how good it is.
Before I started the workout plan, I was overweight. I was wearing plus sized outfits and was having trouble getting around, getting upstairs, getting in and out of my car, and getting out of my seat. Continue reading
I needed to find a way to stop smoking. I know that a lot of people quit because of health issues, but I honestly wasn’t concerned with that. I come from a long line of smokers, and none of them had ever had any medical issues because of their smoking. The reason I needed an alternative was simply because of the cost. It was just costing me way too much money to smoke, and it was hurting the purse strings a little too tightly. I decided to look at some Florida vape stores after a few people recommended that I try that to save some cash.
I had no idea what vaping even involved, but I was not opposed to finding out. I first researched all I could on that, and I was satisfied with what I had found out. Continue reading
Catching up to the learning curve of a new job can be daunting. I never had a reason to learn Powerpoint in any job I had before. Now as a company trainer, I needed to have a training curriculum ready to go by Monday morning. I needed to use a Powerpoint consultant to get my presentation ready. I had all of the images and text that I needed, but I could not compete with the Powerpoint veterans the rest of the trainers seemed to be. I needed help to make the material presentable as well as interesting and enjoyable to consume. Plus, I needed to be able to avoid the things you do not want in your presentation. I have seen some slide shows go awry with too much animation and other effects.
The Powerpoint consultant I used got my materials put together into a great presentation piece that I could run during the training seminar I was conducting. I think a couple of the other trainers were really waiting for me to bomb when it come to Powerpoint as they knew I had no experience in using it. Continue reading
Finding a Miami dress boutique online was a godsend for me considering I live in Wisconsin and will likely never see the city of Miami in my lifetime. I live in Milwaukee and, if truth be told, I’ll likely never see any of the big fashion centers in my lifetime. I’ll never be able to saunter into a dress boutique in a big city and look at all the amazing dresses they have lined up on the racks. Thanks to the internet, however, I don’t have to worry about that. I can look at them and order them online.
The only problem I have with online fashion boutiques is that I can’t hold the clothing in my hands nor try it on to see how it looks. I have a pretty good grasp on my body size and shape, but sometimes you just need to try something on to see what it looks like. Recently, I needed a dress for an occasion and didn’t have time to muck around trying dresses on. I had one dress that I thought I would wear, but it had a tear in it and thus needed to be replaced.
Imagine my surprise when I went online and found the exact same dress at an online site I frequent regularly. It was funny because this was a dress I didn’t buy from them previously. So I looked around and made sure they had my size and went ahead and ordered it. I can only sing their praises as they got the dress to my door in what felt like record time. Moreover, the dress was in perfect condition and fit my curvy body like a glove. I got a lot of compliments because of that dress, and I have to say I’m probably going to order from these guys many times in the future!
Engineering became easier for me when I started using the csi sap2000 program. Saying engineering became easier is a bit of a joke phrase because engineering is one of the most challenging professions in the world today. I have been in the business for about ten years and I must say that every project I have been involved in presents its own challenges. I breezed through engineering school without much difficulty, but every project in the work world has been unique and challenging. It’s part of what make being an engineer such a rewarding career. You’ve got to be smart in this profession.
Of course, smarts will only take you so far. You also need the best tools at your disposal. Continue reading
I knew it would not take me long to find the home I wanted for my family because of the realtor that was working with me. She has such a good reputation in the industry, and we are not really that hard to please. There were a few things I wanted to make sure of, and that was having a certain number of bedrooms and baths in the house we chose. I wanted at least five bedrooms with a minimum of six baths. The realtor who sells luxury real estate in Cherry Hills Co told me that shouldn’t be a problem finding since so many people want a lot of bathrooms in their homes now.
I have three children, and I wanted them to each have their own bedroom and bath. Continue reading
I know someone who is into adventure and extreme sports, and it seems like every week he’s always looking for new ways to push himself and do something extraordinary. One week he wanted to go diving with the sharks, and the next week he wanted to jump out of an airplane without a parachute and land in a pile of boxes, because he had saw someone else do it and survive. Often he invites me to do crazy things with him, but I decline. One day he asked me how tall is Everest, because he wanted to climb the mountain, and wanted me to do it with him.
At first, I declined my friend’s offer to climb with him, but later I reconsidered. Everest is the tallest mountain in the world, standing over 8,000 meters. Many people have climbed the mountain, but not all of them reach the top. To be able to touch the top of Everest would be a monumental achievement, even for someone who has no interest in extreme sports or adventure. I agreed to go with my friend, under the condition that he gets a guide to come with us so we don’t get lost and freeze to death on the mountain.
On the day my friend and I climbed the mountain, we were shaking in our boots, and it wasn’t because of the cold weather. We were scared that we weren’t going to make it. I had never seen my friend this scared. For someone who likes to do crazy things and put his life at risk, he sure wasn’t feeling risky that day. We slowly made our way up the mountain, taking breaks to catch our breath, eat, and rest. There were times when I thought we wouldn’t make it, but we soldiered on and made it to the top.
I was once invited to a black tie wedding. After spending we trying to get rid get ready for that wedding I told myself that I would never have such a fancy event. Instead, I wanted a simple gown, and I wanted to wear beautiful and inexpensive white topaz gemstones for my event. I wanted to figure out ways to make things easier on everyone. The stress of a formal event was just too much, and I knew that there are much more economical ways to have a beautiful day without stressing everyone out. Life is too short for anyone to deal with frustrating things.
When I was first invited to the formal event, I was excited. The last time that I had a chance to wearing anything formal was when I was in high school and went to a dance that my date invited me too. Continue reading
Mom stopped fighting with me about the things that I wear once she saw that I was doing what I could to do odd jobs in order to earn money and buy some of my own clothes. That helped her to understand that I am no longer a child and have a voice of my own about what I want to wear and that my voice should be respected. The very first thing that I bought with my babysitting money was a blue and pink mohair sweater that I had been wanting for quite some time. It finally went on sale, and I got it for 60 percent off. Since I bought it in an off-season, I saved a lot of money. This began my love affair with finding deals. Continue reading
If you had told me my girlfriend would get me to look into male anal bleaching, I would have laughed in your face. I couldn’t imagine any scenario in which I would use such a product. It’s ridiculous on the face of it, yet depending on the nature of your relationship it isn’t that far out there. We like to get up to all sorts of things in our bedroom and she, being from England, groused about having to look at my unsightly bum. When I finished laughing she suggested I use a bleaching cream to lighten things up.
Well, after I made a lot of noise she got me to look online about it a few days later. I didn’t think it was a big thing, but apparently it is. People buy creams to lighten the skin around their privates in order to make them look youthful, I think, or cleaner. There is some usefulness there I think. Continue reading
When I started looking at a new condo to move into, I knew that it could possibly be hard because my wife and I have four children. They had each been sharing a bedroom with one other, but we knew that it was time for them to have their own rooms since they are all getting older, especially our oldest daughter. My wife had started looking since it could take a while to find what we wanted, but as soon as she saw the Bellewoods EC floor plan for a five bedroom unit, she told me that it was as if it was made just for us.
At the far end is the master bedroom with a large walk in closet and its own private bath. Just next to it is the first bedroom, where our youngest son could use. Continue reading
We were a little surprised that we found a place which was as affordable as this one is. It is not very big at all and it is not really in a good location for me, but Katie is starting a new teaching job and she is going to be quite close to the school. The place is out in the country, just beyond the suburbs of Bowling Green. If you click here you will see how I figured out where to get gas for the house. I was really delighted when I saw that the house had a natural gas tank and a very good heating system. In fact it works almost too well. It was pretty cold the first night we moved in and we turned on the heat. Continue reading
