My husband and I finally decided to take the next step with our daughter by looking for an apartment in North Charleston SC that she can move into and become independent. Our precious girl is what people would call a special child in that she was born with some medical abnormalities that make life a bit harder for her. She’s quite friendly and capable, and she does hold down a job, but she’s never going to be a fully developed adult. We’re not getting any younger and we’re afraid what will happen to her if we were to suddenly pass away.
Finding a place for her to live where she can meet other people and develop her own interests is incredibly important. We just needed to find the right place. Since we live in North Charleston, having her nearby is just common sense as we will still need to look in on her from time to time. We went online and did a lot of research in order to find an apartment complex as close to our home as possible, but one that is still nice and clean and has a lot of amenities right there so she doesn’t have to wander around the city for laundry and other things.
And we found a great place! God bless the staff who understood our situation perfectly and went way beyond the call of duty to accommodate our visit and our daughter. Such friendly people! They even arranged to have a few of the residents who will be her neighbors to swing by while we were looking at the apartment and introduce themselves! We were just amazed by how well they treated us and we have no doubts at all that this is the place our daughter can soon call home. She can’t wait to move in!
We lived in an area where the dirt was very dark brown, and the hills were filled with trees all around us. However, only the evergreens were green in December. The rest of the trees were just spindly limbs devoid of the clothing of their green leaves. The foliage in the fall was beautiful, so you might be wondering why we traded that in for one of the nicer apartments in Old Town Scottsdale. We liked Arizona even though the dirt was like concrete. I read online that Scottsdale, Arizona has an average of 299 sunny days per year! That was all I needed to hear to at least want to go visit the place.
Some people are not a fan of hot weather. I like it. However, I like it when it is not muggy. I don’t like it when it feels like you are trying to breathe through a wet sponge. The drier air in Arizona was much more pleasant on a hot day than it was at the same temperature back home. I would have moved just for the sunny days, and we planned on getting a place with big windows to let the sunshine in.

When I noticed the house at the end of my street for sale, I immediately looked at the sign out front to see which realtor in Denver was listened on it. I had admired that house for quite some time, and I really wanted to know what it was on the market for. My house was fine, of course, but I had been living there for 15 years, and I had been thinking of buying elsewhere and possibly renting my place out. I like change, and I had been moving between apartments before I had purchased my place. For a long time, I had been wishing for change, and I wondered if this might be it.
I can remember growing bored with so many things as a child. I didn’t think anything was out of the ordinary because it felt normal for me to feel that way. Continue reading Change Turned out to Be Nearer to Me Than I Expected
There were so many things I tried to get my husband to become interested in over the years, but not matter how much I begged and pleaded, he didn’t care. I finally got to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore. After asking for a divorce, my best friend suggested that I move to her state. She mentioned that some beautiful Forestville MD apartments had just been built right down the street from her house. I had been wondering what I was going to do after I left the house I shared with my husband. I wasn’t sure of where to go, and the idea of moving closer to a friend who cares about me seemed like such a great idea that I decided to go for it. I needed to be around someone who respects me.
When I first met my husband, he was very attentive. He was happy to say yes to going to many of the things that I suggested that we do for dates. When it was his turn to come up with a date, he never did more than take me to a restaurant. That wasn’t a big deal to me at the time because it didn’t set off any flags. He was happy to do things that I wanted to do, so it just wasn’t anything that tipped me off. But after I married him and we were no longer going out on actual dates, he became even more complacent. He just wanted to stay at home. Again, this didn’t really tip me off that anything was amiss.
After years of my husband just wanting to sit home on the couch when he was home, I knew there was a problem. Life is too short to sit around year after year. It was time for me to go, and I was so grateful for the offer to move to Maryland. I could not wait for the change of scenery and starting over again.
There is not a lot that the doctors can do about my back, I have found that out over time. Of course I was pretty lucky that I was not killed in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. There was an explosion in the area around the vehicle that we were driving in and it flipped over a couple of times. All of us were hurt to some degree or another, I was one of the luckier ones, although all of us were alive and more or less able to walk away. I need to find a chiropractor in Campbell CA right now, because that is the only thing that really is going to do me a lot of good. Continue reading I Have to Find a New Chiropractor
My husband didn’t like it, but I got online and found a company that does major appliance repair in Sacramento after my spouse decided something was wrong with our freezer and needed fixing. Obviously we should have called the repair company first, but my husband thinks he is Mister Fixit and always tackles all jobs with aplomb. The problem is that he has two thumbs and can rarely repair anything. I’d say he makes any problem worse ninety percent of the time. The freezer was at least working when he started in on it. An hour later it wasn’t working at all.
Of course I’d just gone to the store and we had about fifty dollars worth of steaks in the freezer. If we didn’t get it back up and running soon, all of that money would go into the trash. Continue reading They Fixed My Freezer Up Nicely
I used to think that insurance companies were really great, and I guess I do still feel that way to an extent. I felt very confident knowing that my house and vehicle were protected, that my health was covered, and that my wife and children would be taken care of should something happen to me. What I did not realize is that there is another side to the insurance industry, and I found myself on the other side of them there. That is why I ended up contacting a Sacramento personal injury lawyer, because I needed help with the insurance company that was giving me a hard time.
It all started when I went to the store a few months ago. Continue reading I Hurt My Back at the Store
We visited Canada over the summer, and I was amazed. There is far more immigration in Canada than there is in the United States these days. You would think that wouldn’t be the case since Canada is more strict about their borders and such. I guess they feel bad for us since there is this impending doom that Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton may become our president soon.
Well that was a bit harsh. I’ll try not to be so mean. I’m honestly not sure why there is so much immigration into Canada, I just figured I would be funny. I think that the issue of immigration is troublesome for any country, not just Canada or the United States. It’s honestly like everyone has this idea in their head that if they just up and plant themselves somewhere else that their life will be better. That’s not always the case, and I think a lot of people learn that.
On the other hand, some people have such better opportunities by migrating to another town, state, or even country. Continue reading I Didn’t Understand How Much Migration There Was!
I knew that I needed to add live chat to my website so my customers could have a faster turnaround time. Before looking at the top live chat software that is available for small business owners, I just had my customers email me with any questions or issues. That was definitely the slow way to have it handled, and I knew that my customers deserved better than that. I also knew that it was hurting my bottom line, since I did end up losing some potential customers because I was just not quick enough for them.
I had no idea how to even go about doing this. I knew that it was a necessity, but I also did not want to go in the hole by doing this either. That is why I took my time and looked at several of the top live chat software programs that are available. Continue reading I Needed to Have Live Chat on My Website
I have gotten myself into a really unfortunate situation where I need money and I do not really have any way to get the money that I need. I am very upset with this situation and I wish that there was something that I could to make it so that I could get the money before I have to face the consequences of not paying. I think that if I could get some free PayPal money that would be best, but I am not sure how that would work, and if it is even a thing. I think I might have heard about something like that before, but my memory is not really helping me out right now.
I guess that I will try to look up some ways to make this happen and see what I can find. I hope that I find some good news, because at this point, I am really stressing out about this. Continue reading Ways to Get Free PayPal Money
I’m always looking for new and interesting things online. During one of my most recent web browsing sessions, I stumbled upon a website that is probably one of my new favorite sites. I don’t think I’ve stopped talking about it for the last two days, and I keep calling all of my friends to tell them what I’ve discovered. For anyone who likes to download music, the Tubidy download site is the fastest and easiest way to do so. Over the past few years, it’s been increasingly difficult to find and download quality music. Some of my favorite sites are no longer around, and I’ve been wandering aimlessly around the web looking for a suitable alternative. I think I found it.
One of the things I appreciate about this website is its simplicity. As soon as you open up the webpage, the search box is right up top. Continue reading Rediscovering Some of My Favorite Music
Some of my friends and I were talking not long ago about who will marry Elsy. We honestly had no idea, but it was fun to talk about. We then started talking about different things, and I told them about a website that I had recently discovered. I had been looking for some help with my own website, so I went online to find out which company would be best to help me. I did not need any work done on my actual site, because it looked really good. I was having problems with getting traffic to my site though, and I knew that I needed someone who understood web marketing to help me get my site where it needed to be. Continue reading Learning to Take Risks is Worth It
We used Snapspy to see what our two kids were up to with the popular chat app program that they use often. One of their teachers recommended it after we pointed out that we were frustrated with not being able to watch our kids more closely. When you work a lot, you do not have time to watch what the rest of your family members in your care are doing 24/7. Ignoring things and hoping for the best can turn out to be a big problem, and that is not the route that their mother or I wanted to take. We just weren’t very sure how to balance things better, but the teacher’s suggestion was very valuable for us.
We both feel that we have great kids. They’re smart in so many ways, as well as funny and caring. Continue reading I Feel More at Ease About My Kids Now
I have no idea what all is involved in unlocking an iPhone. I didn’t let that deter me from getting it unlocked though. Just take my car, for example. When it got a flat tire a few months ago, I had no idea what to do about it. I called a garage, and they came out and put a new tire on for me. Since I did not know how to do it myself, I went to the professionals. That is why I went online and did a search for a qualified carrier unlock service on my computer.
Just because I don’t know how to do it does not mean that it is something very easy for someone else to do it. Continue reading Getting My Phone Unlocked Was Simple
When my car stopped working after nearly 10 years of service, I dreaded the thought of taking it to the auto shop for repairs. There was no way that I would let someone else stick their hands all over the inside of my car and charge me an arm and a leg to do it. I was capable enough to work on my own car, and all I really needed was some way to find out what was wrong with the car. I purchased an ELM327 diagnostic scanner online to give me a digital read out of the car’s problems.
The diagnostic scanner told me that there was something wrong with the fuel pump. I did a simple test to confirm this. I sprayed a bit of starter fluid into the car and cranked the engine. The car turned on for the first time in weeks, confirming what the diagnostic test told me. Continue reading Fixing My Own Car Problem
