My Mom Does Not Miss the Tree

When my father passed away last year, it was naturally a difficult time for my mom. We knew that it was coming because he had an incurable form of cancer, so we were both just grateful that we got to spend as much time with him as we did in his final months. She took about two months before she gave herself a kick into action. She said he would not want her grieving like that, and I agreed. I had to laugh at the first thing she did though, which was look up tree removal in Long Island on her computer. Continue reading →

I Have to Move Closer to Work

I did not think much of this place to start with, but the rent was cheap and it used to be a lot better location for the life I had back when I moved here. Of course that changed when I ran into a friend of mine at this job site. He was really glad to see me, which I did not understand at first, but it turned out that he needed a new foreman. The man he had had gone out on his own. At any rate I need to find Grand Prairie apartments that are much closer to the shop. In truth I never end up at the shop, but that is always where I have to start out and it is usually very early in the morning. Continue reading →

We All Apparently Need Magnesium

When the chiropractor in Cumming I went to see told me I likely had a magnesium deficiency, and then explained what happens when someone suffers from said condition, it all started to make sense. I can’t remember exactly when the problems started, but at some point I started noticing my muscles didn’t feel right. I had a lot of aches and pains that would go away with aspirin, but they would come right back when the pain killers wore off. I also had a lot of muscle spasms. I would be sitting somewhere and my muscles would just start shaking something awful.

I was seriously worried enough to go in and get a brain scan because I feared a stroke or some neurological condition like Parkinson’s disease. It was really scary waiting on those test results let me tell you. When everything came back fine, I was relieved but only for a bit because I was still having the pain and the spasms.

I Had to Move in with My Mom Full Time

When I heard that my mom had an accident at home, I knew that I needed to get to her as soon as possible. When I arrived at her apartment, it was more than clear to me that she could no longer live alone. So, I knew that I needed to find a bigger apartment in Silver Spring MD for the two of us to live in. I knew that everything was going to change. I needed to quit my job. I needed to get squared aware back at home, and then come back to live full time.

My mom has always been very independent. She brought me up on her own, and has never needed help with anything. She had her own home at the age of 25, and she had saved all the money to buy it outright with cash. She had been in the military and done well there before I was even born. Continue reading →

I Found a Nice Place Much More Quickly Than I Thought I Would

Because it was the Christmas season, I was not sure if I would have much luck finding a place that would have the time to show me different apartments for rent in Alamo Heights and the surrounding areas. It felt like such an odd time to have to look for a new place, and I didn’t have much time. I was also in a rush because of the holiday myself, so I felt stretched thin between getting a variety of things gone, much less look for a new place. But everything needed to be attended to, so I just told myself that I would what I could considering the time of year.

I had to begin calling places on Christmas Eve day. I even went without lunch at work that day so that I could ensure that I could make a delivery to a nice lady in time that day. I work as a delivery person for a busy florist company. When the holidays hit, we are slammed with business, which is a good thing. This is what keeps me employed. As soon as I had a chance that day, I started calling different places, and found that a variety of them were already closed. I suddenly started to worry.

When I got home on Christmas Eve, I attempted to call a few more places. The first place that I called was still open. I was elated when a really polite employee answered the phone. She understood my plight, and she surprised me when she said she was willing to stay open for another hour so that I could come look at the one apartment she had available. I raced over there, and loved the apartment. No need to look anywhere else because I liked the one she showed me just fine.

A New Life in New Mexico

My new wife Stephanie and I are so in love with each other. We are the true definition of being soul mates. We looked forward to starting our future together, but we had a serious problem. That problem was my ex-girlfriend Kelly. She was obsessed with me. I told her I did not like her. She stalked us. We looked for apartments for rent in Santa Fe to get away from Kelly once and for all.

Kelly and I dated for two years. I thought she was the perfect one for me, but I was so wrong. There were a lot of problems in our relationship. First, she was too controlling. She wanted to control every aspect of my life. She tried to control who I could have as friends. I did not like that. She also betrayed me. Continue reading →

Living on Our Own is Great

My best friend and I had been talking about looking at apartments for Bluffdale UT for a while now. We had both been living with our parents in the same town, but we started feeling that tug for some independence. We knew that it would be better to get a place together, because truth be told, it was a little scary to strike out on our own. We gave each other the courage that we needed though, and we finally decided to just take the plunge. We knew that we wanted to live in Bluffdale, and we also knew that we wanted an apartment.

It would be easier than renting a house for so many reasons. First, there is the maintenance to consider. Continue reading →

I Started the Apartment Hunt Today

I have just gotten out of the dorms here at Jacksonville State University and I have to admit that I am quite relieved. If you know much about that, then you can guess that you are pretty much at the mercy of whoever it is in administration who picks the people that share each room. I did not come out good, the other guy was just a complete jerk and seemed to want to go out of his way to prove this fact on a daily basis. I am using an apartment finder for Jacksonville FL right now and looking for something that fits in a rather narrow window. Of course it has to be close to the campus and on the bus line.

We Found a Better and Much Cheaper Apartment in Daytona Beach

With a change in our job that is funded by tax money, we had a wage freeze and cancellation of overtime. We had no idea how long this would last as politics is behind our pay. Our lease was up, and the wise choice was to not renew for another year. We were paying to much in rent, so we looked for a more affordable apartment in Daytona Beach. My wife and I went out to look at the Countryside Apartments. We liked them a whole lot better than where we were living, and the rent was a few hundred dollars less per month.

We decided to get a two-bedroom place because it was less expensive than our single-bedroom apartment we were moving out of. Continue reading →

Living Close to Family is Important

When my brother kept telling me to move to Florida, I knew there was no way I could afford it. He made me a deal. He said if he could find a nice place for me to live that was cheaper than where I was living at the time, would I at least consider it? Of course I said yes to that, because I did want to be closer to where he and his family live. I had looked at the best apartments in Deland Florida online before though, and I knew that I would not be able to afford to live there.

That is where I was wrong though. My brother told me it did not take him long to find a nice apartment that is just about ten minutes from his house. Continue reading →
