When I started looking at apartments near Edina MN, I was really surprised at the difference in apartments. The last time I had lived in one was nearly 20 years ago, and it was just a basic apartment. I had been living in a house with my husband for the last couple of decades, but the house is too hard to live in without him there with me since he passed a year ago. I decided to put it up for sale and move into an apartment, which is how I started looking at apartments that I didn’t even know existed.

I am barely into my 40s, but I feel much older a lot of the times because of the illness that my husband went through. (more…)

We spent the first five years of our married life in a mobile home. That is not a great idea in a place that can get windy. We made it without any harm though. However, when the baby was on the way, we decided we wanted a much better place for the money we were spending. We were paying lot rent and a monthly payment on the mobile home. That money would be better spent on a much nicer apartment with a lot more enjoyable amenities. We looked at some Lewisville TX apartments, and we settled on the perfect place for us at the Bluffs at Vista Ridge. That is a really nice place, and we were going to get a lot more for our monthly housing budget. (more…)

I pulled off of the interstate into a city that I had never been to before. My plan was to simply show up at whatever city looked interesting and find a place to live. I found myself hoping there would be plenty of Temple Terrace apartments for rent because I didn’t feel like driving further anymore and I didn’t want my plan to be a failure. It had been a tough week, and I just wanted to start my life over again. I knew it would be the best thing for me to do.

My mom used to tell me that I would get too attached to people when I was growing up. When our relatives would come to visit and stay for awhile, I would then cry and become depressed when they left. When I would make a friend in school and that friend decided they didn’t want to stay as my friend, I would become depressed. (more…)

We rented a nice two-bedroom place in North Dallas, Texas. We got out of the heart of the urban area. Being Texans, the city was just a bit too much activity. We come from rural Texas. A small town that most Texans would not have ever heard about. It was a bit of a culture shock when we got married and moved to urban Dallas. We thought we would thrive in the city, but we didn’t. We moved to The Oaks of North Dallas after visiting their website. That little bit of separation from the real hustle and bustle was all we needed. Plus, having three swimming pools is kind of nice too.

We really like our apartment. We got one with a fireplace, and we have two bedrooms. Our patio has a storage area that we put our sports gear and other things into. It is like having a shed to put stuff in even though you live in an apartment. These new apartment buildings really have the lifestyles of the tenants in mind. (more…)

My wife and I decided to move south. That is an inside joke for us as we live in Texas. We moved from a place way up north in Texas called Perryton to the city area of San Antonio. The distance is 550 miles or almost a nine hour drive. You still have a lot of Texas to the south. That should give you an idea how big this state is. It was so far away that when we were looking for apartments for rent in San Antonio we did it online. It is so far away from the town we used to live in up north in Texas that you would need to fly back and forth to look at places. (more…)

I was very unhappy with my living arrangements, so I decided to do something about it. When my former roommate and I had started sharing an apartment, it was with the understanding that we would have no overnight guests. It took her only a month to break that rule, and it was just too crowded there. I looked online at apartments in 30339 because I figured if I was going to move, I might as well move closer to my job. That is how I found The Encore, and I could not be happier that my former roomie made me upset enough to move out.

This apartment is much nicer than the one that I had with her. Granted, there were two bedrooms and two baths, but my one bedroom and one bath apartment is still bigger. (more…)

Every aunt, cousin and other relative was coming out of the woodwork telling me they knew of a nice place for rent when we were looking for a new apartment. The reason we wanted to move is because we rented the place we were at based on the advice of a relative. We certainly were not going to do that again. We let it die down that we were looking, and then my wife and I searched on our own for South End apartments in Charlotte NC. We wanted a luxury place, and we did not want to hear from anyone on how we should save for a house or put the money we would save by renting a smaller place into a mutual fund.

Everyone has advice on how to save and spend your money if you let them. We were a bit naive about relative advice when we were first married, but now we handled things on our own without any need for outside help. We managed our income quite well. (more…)

I sit at my desk a lot, both at work and when I am home. I started to feel the effects of this a few years ago when my back started protesting when I would get up from my chair. I tried to make it a point to get up at least once an hour for a few minutes, but it just seemed like that was not possible too often. As a result, I had a very sore back, and it was starting to affect other areas of my life. I contacted a chiropractor in Campbell CA after a friend told me that I would probably find some relief if I had my back checked.

I considered talking with my primary care physician about it, but I knew that he would probably just tell me to get up and walk more when I am at work. I also figured that since it was my back that was hurting, it just made sense to see a chiropractor. I was able to get an appointment for that same week, and I was prepared because I had read a good bit about how a chiropractor can help someone like me. (more…)

In fact you can find a lot of great places to ride dirt bikes out in the deserts and the mountains of Arizona. I know this guy who has a lot of dirt bikes. He buys them when they do not work and fixes them up. He has this long trailer which holds about nine bikes depending on which type of bike he takes. We go up there and ride around for a weekend all of the time, but this time I ended up having to find a Mesa chiropractor when I got back in the city. I was just doing the same thing as I usually do, but this time it was not going to go the way that it usually does. (more…)

I went to visit my mom last week, and I was surprised that she did not have a home cooked meal waiting for me. Instead, she ordered out for pizza, something she has never done before. I quickly found out that it was because she was having problems with her fridge, and she had to throw most everything away in it. It was not keeping things cold enough, so I took a look but was not able to figure it out myself. I used my smartphone to do a search for appliance repair in Sacramento because I did not want my mom to go without a working fridge for a day let alone the week and a half that it had been.

She told me that she figured it was just done for, and that she would have to buy a new one. This one is not that old though. (more…)

I’ve finally located the shower doors in Essex County NJ that I’ve been looking for. The shower installed in my home right now was once nice, I promise, but the years haven’t been kind to the glass shower doors. Last week they finally gave in to the wear and tear of time and literally shattered. Thankfully nobody was in the shower at the time or I imagine they would have left the shower after being cut to ribbons by the glass. What a terrible mess to have to clean up but it gave me an opportunity to install a whole new shower that I’ve been eyeing for the past few months.

Maybe the shower could sense my displeasure with it, hah! It was nearly 40 years old anyways and was in need of some serious TLC that I was just unwilling to give it. So I’ve ripped the entire thing out of the bathroom and have started working on something new. (more…)

I couldn’t believe that I would be moving from a really boring suburban area to a well-known and very large city! Not only that, I would be living in the south for the very first time. I had just gotten hired for a new job, and the woman who hired me said that I should look around at Atlantic Station Atlanta apartments because it’s a very popular area, and many of her employees live around that area. Only have 1 month to get my new place if down, so I needed to hurry it up.

My mom told me in high school that I would probably need some move away to find a really good job. It made me sad at first, but Mom said that I would thank her in the long run. We lived in a place where job hard to come by. We live in the country. Most people there struggle in life. (more…)

We work in the area at the same place, so my wife asked me if we could start looking for apartments near Cumberland Mall. It is a popular spot, so she figured it would show up some nice results on Google. We did a search and actually found too many places to consider. However, one stood out so much that it made the other choices pale by comparison. The first picture I saw of Overton Rise was the swimming pool. I asked what the blue areas were that had places to lounge. There is a separate sundeck, but these were shelf areas just at the waterline of the rest of the pool. It looked like areas where the water would be about ankle deep, and your chair or chaise is in the water. That seems like a cool idea-literally. (more…)

My husband told me that I would really enjoy the appointment that he made for me because he knew how much pain I had been going through for for a couple of frustrating weeks. He had called a chiropractor in San Jose to make an appointment for me after hearing about one who is located near my office is really good. I had never been to one before, so I wasn’t really sure what it would be like or what I should expect from the treatment in general. However, I was willing to try just about anything because I wanted to feel healthy again.

One night, I could not find my favorite storage containers that I used regularly in my kitchen. I began looking through all of the cabinet to see if I could find them. I’m rather short, so I needed to get up on a chair to look in the top cabinets. While I was standing on the chair, our dog came in and bumped the chair, causing it to slide a tiny bit. (more…)

I have ended up in the middle of a great big mess through no real fault of my own. I do work for a guy that is a big fat jerk, but a lot of people can say that obviously. One of the guys at work claims that he has injured his back while on the job, and he has hired a Sacramento personal injury lawyer to sue the boss. Of course I have no real idea what he is talking about, but the claim that he makes is that I am a witness to the event that caused this injury. If it happened the way that he claims it did then he was doing stuff that he should not have done. (more…)

I had no idea what it was when I found it, but apparently what I found is something you can have made up. It is called a Jewish wedding ketubahs. It started out when I was out rummaging around this weekend.I bought some random stiff at a sale and when I got home I realized that there was something else in the box. Of course I bought a bunch of old vinyl records. I found some stuff from the early 1970′s. I found a couple of Beatles albums, a Rolling Stones album, some Grand Funk Railroad and the great album Tapestry by Carole King. Of course I had that, but I bought all of these old records and I paid 20 dollars for a whole box of them. Of course I was looking for something specific. I was trying to find some Swamp Blues.
