I have been a college teacher for the last few months. I really like the job, because I can make my own hours and days if I want. If I don’t want to do the work on a Friday, I can genuinely take the day off from doing work. This type of thing is great. I can stay back at the house when the youngsters are not feeling well. I can stay back at the house when the two of us need to have crucial service repairs done in the house. When my girlfriend has getaway from her job at the hospital, I can takeRead More →

I have been a part time instructor for the last few years. I love the work, because I can make our own day to day life. If I don’t want to work on a weekday, I can actually take the afternoon off of the job. This type of availability is great. I can stay at the house when the youngsters are sick. I can stay at the house when every one of us need to have crucial repair repairs done in the house. When my girlfriend has to leave from her task at the hospital, I can take the time off too. It works outRead More →

I have been a substitute teacher for the last nine years. I love the job, because I can make my own schedule. If I don’t want to work on a Tuesday, I can easily take the day off work. This type of flexibility is great. I can stay home when the kids are sick. I can stay home when we need to have important service repairs done in the house. When my wife has vacation from her job at the hospital, I can take the time off too. It works out great for our family. Recently, I’ve been working five days a week. A friendRead More →

I don’t know if you’ve ever had a particularly rude HVAC repair representative, however it is seriously a major let down… When I’m going plus paying particularly for an experience or repair to be taken care of, I do expect some level of standards. For example, I know that the repair worker should not make rude comments plus yell at me, just for beginners. Be warned, you never know who your buyer is. Just the other week I had a huge problem when my oil furnace stopped operating out of nowhere. The temperature was supposed to plummet down below 0 degrees, so it was pressingRead More →

I never felt I would say this, however I’m so blissful to be living in an apartment once again! During the decade or so that I lived in an apartment inside my 20s, I truly thought it was the worst, and I despised having roommates, paying rent each week, and having to live stacked on top of other human beings. However, I had no understanding of what a pain in the ass it is to be a homeowner! After only a few years of that terrible responsibility, I am so relieved to be returning to a rental unit! You see, when you live in anRead More →

There are times when it’s shocking to consider the weird upbringings that we all have, and the lasting effects of our differing early life experience. I mean, I rarely think about the fact that some of my closest buddies are from various regions of the world. I rarely consider the cultural and personal dissimilarities between everybody… We get along and we are great buddies, and that’s all that matters in my opinion! However, once in a while they throw me for a total loop. Just last week, for instance, I was merely hanging out with my truly nice buddy who grew up in Greenland, andRead More →

There is so much in life that you can learn to go without, such as regular meals, for example. There was a time when I was accustomed to three meals a day, plus chips, but after spending a long time out in the world plus making undoubtedly little currency, I know that it was just a matter of adjusting. At the moment, I get by on maybe three meals every few days. Periodically less than that! I used to know I couldn’t live without my absolute favorite cable TV shows, however as it stands I haven’t even watched any cable in many years. I knowRead More →

I have consistently been especially envious of my brother for being able to use crying to his advantage. There are those who can do it, but some people just can’t. I’m always jealous of those who have the edge in this department. When I was younger I was totally jealous whenever he used the waterworks to get things to go his way. When he was told no, or was denied something, he would just start up those incredible realistic fake tears, plus consistently end up getting his way, and it was extremely maddening! As all of us have gotten older, he had only improved hisRead More →

How often a year are you actually cold? That’s too broad of a question. What I mean to ask is how often a year do you get so cold you are shivering, and have no way to become warm again? Most of us take this for granted, however for some people, especially people in less developed places, the ability to survive a brutal wintertime is still an ongoing trouble. We should count our blessings that we happen to live in a country where it is not such a big deal.  And yet there are still people right here in our country who do not haveRead More →

You certainly must have read some of my other blog posts about the amazing treasures I find when I buy outdated abandoned storage lockers. To provide you with an answer to your question, yep I got the idea of doing this from enjoying that tv show… But it was a fantastic idea they had in the show, as it looked fun to go to auctions as well as bid on people’s abandoned junk. It really is fun! I prefer it over anything else and it’s become my every-weekend hobby. I don’t really mess around with little junk though, as I love to go large orRead More →

We always keep our best car in the garage, because my partner is commonly afraid it is going to receive damage from hail, or from the snow.  It has never been out much, even when it was raining. The car is close to being thirty years old, and it has roughly 35,000 miles on the odometer.  The furthest it has gone was about 500 miles in a single trip. I had to laugh wildly, because he is getting it ready for our annual anniversary trip.  We are going to one of our favorite beaches and the two of us are entirely thrilled about it. WhenRead More →

My hubby fairly recently agreed to get me a ductless mini split Heating, Ventilation and A/C appliance for our office.  After I considered it, I was thinking that I am really beginning to outgrow our office. I certainly need another bookcase, plus I could use another filing cabinet.  I have my writing desk in there, plus I really have so very little space to freely move around in. I questioned him what he thought about moving our office to the loft.  It was roughly four times the size of our office, plus I could even put a daybed up there just in case a singleRead More →

We own this aged window cooling appliance that gets taken out in October, as well as we make sure to return it to the window in May.  The cooling appliance is easily efficient, as well as it is powerful enough to cool our entire downstairs. The only problem with the cooling appliance is that it is a window unit.  It is also severely heavy. My hubby used to be able to carry it on his own, but now it takes both of us to lift it as well as get it installed. This fall, we had to call our son-in-law as well as enlist hisRead More →

My Mom as well as I grew up in a lodge on the outskirts of town. My upbringing was genuinely technology-free, making it harder for myself and others as an adult to get used to using regular tech tools such as cellphones, laptops as well as tablets, and a plus side of that, however, was that I had learned to have a super small dependence on technology to make our life simpler. Aside from having a smartphone for our work, as well as a laptop for typing, most of our own beach apartment is super lightly equipped as far as appliances go. In fact, 1Read More →

I’ve had a job as an Heating as well as Air Conditioning specialist for the past ten years. The job pays great, but it also brings rewards that aren’t related to money. But, one of those prestigious things is the ability to inform others on ways to not just break down on energy usage in their places, but how to have an efficiently powered condo from the beginning. From architectural designs that conserve or disperse heat, to appliances that reduce power use while cooling the individuals home, I cover it all. One of my number one topics to go over now is the use ofRead More →

Early on in my life, I had entrepreneurial tendencies.  I would stand outside my house, and sell my mom’s cookies and kool-aid, hoping to make a few extra bucks.  It wasn’t much, but it was a start, and i loved knowing that I was responsible for myself, even then. I liked making money, and I had a knack for talking to people and knowing what it was that they wanted.  I guess it was no surprise when I continued to make money at odd jobs of my own making, even when I got older. I’ve now ended up with my own business. I opened aRead More →

I am a single mom trying to keep up with several children under the age of six, a full-time job, numerous dogs and an entirely oversized house.  My children are all involved in a variety of athletic interests and activities, and the people I was with and I spend the majority of our time in the car from one daycare to the next.  It is hard to find any real time to mow the grass, clean the dishes, fold the laundry or get groceries in the respectable time frame. I actually don’t have the time to deal with abrupt repairs and I need to saveRead More →

I have worked as a ninth grade teacher at a small school for more than two decades.  For the most part, I really do enjoy my task at hand. I like working with the kids on a daily basis. Plus I enjoy having weekends, holidays as well as most summers off to take a break.  The only disadvantage of the position is the school’s outdated furnace system. I am convinced that the heating component is way older than I am plus a health threat to the students and faculty.  Whenever the heating system starts up, it makes a good deal of loud noise plus distractsRead More →

It’s always so delightful when the summertime rolls around where I live right now. The birds will be out singing, the morning light will be shining so strong, and the flowers will blossom. However, there are some mornings where the outdoor humidity will reach horrible extremes. The intensity & thickness of it have actually run people, ladies included back indoors for some relief immediately. All of us often experience heat waves here as well where we are, which isn’t that poor compared to experiencing ice or snow storms as my sister tends to where she lives. However it does pose as a health hazard ifRead More →

The winter season can be oh so much fun if you really enjoy the cold. For those who know how to be happy, and who can appreciate being outside in really frigid below degrees weather, this is area for them, no doubt. I cannot take the pains of winter and almost everyone knows it about me, especially! Honestly, there’s nothing great about the cold I have found plus it’s worse when you are living in a state where winter is the majority of the months in a year, as I myself, do. Our winters are known to be severely harsh most often, which really makesRead More →

Have you ever taken a trip to the zoo in the spring season? Well, most of us have, but what do you think goes on behind the scenes of the zoo each day? There is so much more to the zoo than creatures to look at and exhibits to walk through during a visit. First of all, consider the big teams of employees there that are available. The majority of them are undoubtedly out of view of the public most of the time of the day. And, finally working in big underground tunnel networks and secret hallways that run throughout the grounds is a bigRead More →

I first started renting apartments at the young age of 16. Granted, back then it was kind of a hush hush thing, without any legal documents or signatures. It definitely was not legal for a 16 year old to rent an apartment alone, but times were tough and the father of one of my closest friends had a place that he could rent to me for cheap. He knew I was a hard worker and that he did not have to worry about me paying him, even if it was a bit belated a few times. Nowadays, I have my own real estate business andRead More →

When I used to visit my Grandmother as a small child, I absolutely loved hanging out in the barn. They lived in an outdated farmhouse that had multiple outbuildings way out in the countryside.It was so beautiful. They were all built well over a hundred years ago to date,  however were all in absolutely good shape for their age. Now, fast forward twenty year when both of my Grandparents have naturally passed away. Sadly, no one really wanted to take over the outdated farmhouse and it was sold to current investors who wanted to turn the entire locale into a destination wedding facility. I thinkRead More →

For multiple weeks I believe it has been, I have been trying to make an appointment for Heating & Air Conditioning replacement for our business office. I am in the process of opening a small boutique, while the office space that I bought did not have Heating & Air Conditioning already installed when we purchased it. With our opening afternoon creeping closer and closer to the day planned, I absolutely need to get the Heating & Air Conditioning replacement done as soon as possible for my customers. But, unfortunately, things have been so tied up that I have not been able to find the timeRead More →

My parents bedroom is arranged so that their bed is directly beneath an air vent. They have it this way because they strangely like to feel cool air blowing on them from the a/c when laying down in the evenings. I’m a pretty hot-natured person, in addition to if I didn’t have a way to relax with the freezing air blowing on me, I would easily have a hard time sleeping as well. I try to conserve as much energy as I can throughout the day so that I can run the cooling system at full blast all night without too much financial worry. WhenRead More →

There are days when I wish I could go back to college. I really enjoyed my time as a student. I had a lot of freedom, and I met a lot of wonderful people during those years. However, there is one thing that I would never want to relive. I absolutely hated being in a dorm room. The dorms were to loud, and the worst part was that I had very little control over the air conditioner. The thermostat was operated by a resident assistant who lived on the hallway, and it heated and cooled four separate rooms. Because of this, I had no wayRead More →

If I could create a time component that would sincerely allow me to go back in time to when I was building our house the first time, I would do a handful of things differently!  First off, I think that I would have had a separate office built in the backyard instead of creating extra section in the house for an office. It would give me more disconnect from work and an extra guest room in the house! I guess this would have been a superb way to separate my work life from our personal life. Another thing I would have had installed would haveRead More →

I have some extra space in a shop in my backyard that I would genuinely love to convert into an office if at all it is possible. It’s about 400 square feet, even though I think it would be perfect for me to get my work done in such a space. The only complication I think I may have will come in cooling it completely. There’s not currently an air conditioner of any type in the location. I don’t want to have to spend a fortune on cooling, so I have been researching other options. I think that I could constantly get a portable a/cRead More →

One of our favorite films of all time is Fighting the Man, and the movie is about two men that get into a bit of legal trouble. The kids get wrongfully accused of murder plus aiding plus abetting. The one boy calls his cousin who happens to be a legal counselor. The movie mainly circles this legal counselor trying to figure out the case. The movie is entirely a comedy because the cousin is not a absolutely good legal counselor, it took him several times to pass the BAR exam. Also he is mainly a personal injury legal counselor. Doing a greater case, plus oneRead More →

Living in a current home that was built in 1904 is both cool and terrible. It’s cool since I live inside what is practically a museum, but it’s disappointing because the device installed here – namely the HVAC device – is ancient and in disappointing condition. I’ve been actually working on replacing pieces of it here and there, but ultimately the entire HVAC duct of the current home is going to have to be replaced. I’d saved up a wonderful bit to make sure I can afford redoing the entire duct system, and this Fall I was going to knock it out. I hired aRead More →

My girls are so ready for Summer to be here. We live in the northern section of the country and it’s usually cold and snowy for at least manymonths out of the year. We currently have snow boots, glikes, moderate hats, and coats scattered around my home office and in my study room. Since I have 5 children, every set of snow gear is multiplied by 5. As you can imagine, there are a lot of gloves being lost around my house! We’ve had a rough time with my gas heating this Wintertime. Back in the fall, we neglected to have my local Heating andRead More →

Not that long ago I bought my start up home plus it has been a neat plus fun experience throughout the entire process of getting into a first time home. I went in blind. I just walked into this venture thinking that purchasing an apartment wasn’t easily any different than any other big cost. You simply look through a couple of options, pick the one you like, sign some paperwork, plus get the papers signed and given to you, however with a house, however, there are a bunch of start up steps you have to pass before calling up the moving dealer to schedule aRead More →

Recently I purchased my first home and it has been an exhilarating and harrowing experience throughout the entire process. I naively went into this venture thinking that purchasing a house wasn’t really much different than a car or boat. You simply look through a few, pick out the one you like, sign some paperwork, and get the keys handed to you. With a house, however, there are a bunch of intermediary steps you have to pass before calling up the moving company to schedule a date. One of these steps involves having a licensed inspector come into the home and look over everything from theRead More →

I always want to travel and go to new locales, and I used to only go to tropical locations with beach, surf and fruity drinks. Now I have extended the traveling to newer types of locales, but lately, I have been going to traditional cold locales, and I hike in the snow, whale watch and snowmobile. What is interesting is that the countries who traditionally have cold weather, only have oil heaters. The last locale I went to only had heating as an option. All of the hotels I stayed in, their temperature control unit gave only heating. You could adjust if the oil heaterRead More →

I don’t like going camping so much, and I just don’t see the point in it at all. Why would I want to leave the bed, shower and toilet in favor of the woods? The reason all of us invented all those things is because being outside with no shelter stinks, and I recognize camping is seasoned and all of us have moved on from it, then no matter how taxing I try though, my bestie Marty insists on going for a long hike and then camping for a few mornings, and I have to pee, sleep and eat in the woods.

When you’re young and dumb, there are few things that you won’t do on a dare.  My sibling was one of those people. She and some of her friends were out drinking one night, and her friends dared her to strip down, and walk home.  I believe she wasn’t thinking about it being cold outside when she accepted the dare, nor did she think about them heading home, and letting her alone separate from her clothes.  She walked the mile home, with the snow pelting her naked skin. My Dad was so mad when she got home, however she drew her a hot bath, andRead More →

I recently started a brand new work from home position as an administrator for a small company. It was particularly going to be quite the change to adapt to the new job from what I was used to, but I accepted the challenge. I will say that it was truly taxing at first, but I eventually got the overall hang of it. I wasn’t very accustomed to using the PC that much, however it was legitimately fun after a few weeks.

I recently started a whole new position as a job at home secretary and office manager for a small corporation. It was absolutely quite the huge change from what I was used to, which involved commuting over 2 hours to work each day. I never was at home and never had the time to get things done around the house before. Nowadays, it’s where I spend all my time. It has made me acutely aware of a few things at home, such as the terrible quality of my home temperature control system. When I took the job it was entirely ridiculous and strenuous at first,Read More →

I recently started a current position as a very busy remote administrator for a small dealer. It was actually quite the change from what I was used to, considering how much work I was suddenly doing. Before I honestly didn’t do much at all. I had a really low level office job where I essentially warmed a seat all day, every day. Even though I accepted the challenge, it was genuinely tough at first. It took a while, but I eventually got the hang of it. I wasn’t accustomed to using the home PC that much, however it was really fun once I got rolling.Read More →

I recently started a new position working remotely as a home administrator for a small company. It was genuinely quite the huge change from what I was used to, however after I accepted the challenge it all worked out. It was genuinely strenuous at first, however before long I eventually got the hang of it. I wasn’t very well accustomed to using the phone all that much, but it was really fun after a while.

I recently started a new position as a work at home administrator for a small company. It was definitely quite the change from what I was used to, but I accepted the challenge.

Every person in my family lives outside of the city in a Victorian Cottage in the woods. Everyone in my family is equally up to the task of making sure that our place stays secure. Every person in my family never really thought about home security, until a recent problem happen. About six months ago, every person in my family was down at the lake for a few days. When everyone of us got back to our Victorian Cottage, everyone of us equally found out that our place that had been burglarized by some local thieves. Everyone of us decided right there and then thatRead More →

We live in a society that seems to be growing exponentially in population, and with an increase in the number of people around there comes a need for added safety. I live out in the country on a farm in the middle of nowhere with my family, and up until recently, I haven’t given home security much more than a passing thought. Honestly, the most I have ever thought about keeping the house and my family safe involved keeping the 12 gauge loaded and in the corner next to the bed. However, times are changing, and the need for a more evolved view on keepingRead More →

I will admit to you right now that I had a huge meltdown the first night I spent in our new house. My parents had owned this home for at least 20 years as well as used it as a rental house. There was an upstairs home in the place, as well as a downstairs apartment. I got quite a deal buying the whole enormous place from our folks. However, I did not luck out quite to the extent that I thought I did, which was apparent when I first walked into the house. The tenants totally destroyed the home. They had put holes everywhere,Read More →

I will easily admit that I cried and had a mini break down the very first evening I spent in my modern house down the street. My parents had this same home in their direct possession plus used it as a family rental house. There was an upstairs home unit, plus a downstairs apartment included as well. I got quite a deal or myself by buying the locale from my dear old folks. However, I realize now that I really did not luck out quite the way that I thought. The tenants before I made the purchase totally destroyed the home. The walls plus ceilingRead More →

I will admit that I cried hysterically all by myself on the first night I spent in our modern house. My dear old parents had this lake house in their possession up until that day, and used it as a temporary house. There was an upstairs home and also a downstairs apartment. I got quite a great deal buying the locale outright from our folks. However, I did not luck out in the same way when it came to the condition of the place. The renters totally destroyed the home. The walls and ceiling were definitely going to be coming down. The floors were incrediblyRead More →

I will admit that I cried hysterically the very first evening I spent in my whole new house. My parents had this same beach house in their possession for over 35 years, in addition to used it for many years as a rental beach house for extra cash. There was an upstairs beach house for rent, in addition to a downstairs apartment. I got quite a deal when I went buying the place from my folks for a good price. However, I did not luck out in addition to I thought. It was clear very soon. The renters totally destroyed the home. Every one ofRead More →

My sibling Rex & I recently broke up with both of our significant others. Because we had to change up our living situations and couldn’t afford to live alone, we went ahead and moved in together for the time being. We get along fine as roommates, although he certainly thinks that he knows more about being a homeowner than I do. That’s why we recently bought a new air conditioning unit for our apartment and decided to install it all on our own. I let my brother choose the heating and cooling system for us, and that’s how we wound up with a ductless miniRead More →

My sibling and I just decided to make a life change and we moved in together a few months ago in order to save money. We both live in an expensive city, so although it’s super weird to share an apartment with my brother, it’s really useful for saving up cash. THe apartment needed a few renovations when we moved in, and we’re splitting those costs together. Just recently we bought a new air conditioning unit for our apartment to take care of the poor ventilation problem. It is a ductless mini cut cooling system that we chose. Installing a ductless a/c unit was supposedRead More →

My brother and I recently obtained a whole new air conditioning component for our modern apartment. Since it is a small apartment, we wanted to get a small and efficient heating and cooling system for the tiny amount of room. That’s how we went with our alternative ventilation system. It is a ductless mini chop AC system. Installing a ductless cooling system component is maybe not as hard as you would think. There are two big portions that you need to understand for the cooling system equipment installation. First there is the outdoor air compressor unit. The air compressor simply had to be mounted onRead More →

My sibling Randy plus I recently purchased a current a/c component to improve our apartment. It is a ductless mini cut a/c system. Installing a ductless cooling system component actually is harder than you would think, especially considering the advertisements. There are two big components to worry about for the cooling system equipment. First there is one outdoor air compressor unit, which had to be mounted on an exterior wall somewhere outside of the house. Then there is the indoor air compressor unit, as well, which I had to drill the ductless A/C component straight to the wall. Then the people I was with andRead More →

My brother Ryan and I recently bought a new air conditioning unit for our apartment. It is a ductless mini split air conditioner. Installing a ductless a/c unit is harder than you would think. There are two big portions for the a/c equipment. First there is the outdoor air compressor. The air compressor had to be mounted on an exterior wall of the house. Then there is the indoor air compressor. Ryan and I had to drill the ductless AC unit to the wall. Then we had to cut a hole, feed refrigerant tubes and then some wiring all the way to the outdoor airRead More →

I love the dividends that have come from the updates that I recently had done to my heating and air conditioning system.  It was a smart choice I made when I hired the HVAC contractor. He was able to update both the heating and the air conditioning and he added zone control into the system.  We didn’t have to have any costly renovations done to put in the zone control, and it wasn’t overly expensive. The HVAC technician simply installed some valves into the ductwork that directed the airflow from one area into a different area.  We then had thermostats installed into the rooms, andRead More →

I’ve been looking into different ways to improve the energy efficiency of my home.  I am hoping to reduce the workload of the furnace and air conditioner and trim monthly utility costs.  One option is improving the integrity of the insulation in the walls, ceilings and crawl spaces. Since I don’t want to get into tearing down and dealing with a gigantic mess, I am considering blown-in insulation.  From what I have read, blown-in insulation can significantly reduce energy costs, and improve the comfort of the home. Blown in insulation is far more airtight than conventional insulation that comes in rolled batting.  Blown in materialsRead More →

I love my old books, and they mean a lot to me.  Most of my book collection was given to me by my grandfather.  He always had a small library in his house, and I was always amazed by them.  I just liked the way they looked and smelled. Even before I was able to read, I would spend hours in his library.  When I got older, I took a job that took me to many exotic places. I found so many small book shoppes, and I picked up several great additions to my collection.  When grandpa died, I was given his library. I knewRead More →

It seems like I am always have problems with my internet.  I never know if I am going to have service, when I need it.  Since I do a lot of my work at home, on my own computer, I can’t not have the internet.  I really hate it, however because of it unreliability. I would gladly find another service provider if I could, but I don’t have anything else available in my area.  The reason I tell you this, is because I had my HVAC serviced a couple of days ago. They checked my air conditioning to make sure that it was running properlyRead More →

I became totally aware of how bad the ventilation system in our home was, when our son decided to try to make supper for his father and I.  We were working late, and even though he is thirteen, and able to be home alone for a couple of hours, I didn’t expect him to start dinner for us.  I appreciated the help, but he ended up burning the dinner, and I walked into a house full of smoke. He was in tears, and worried that I would be mad at him.  He had the windows opened, and he had turned on the ventilation fans inRead More →

I remember always being coerced into going to my grandmother’s house.  I never really minded going when my grandfather was alive. The house seemed different then.  It has nothing to do with not seeing grandma, but she refuses to use the air conditioner. Grandpa always had the air conditioner running in the summer.  He said he hated the heat. Maybe grandma doesn’t mind the heat, or maybe grandpa didn’t teach her how to turn the air conditioning on, but she doesn’t use the AC, ever.  I for one, do not like the heat. I tend to get antsy when it is really hot in theRead More →

Over the last couple of months, I have begun cooking.  I like being able to create superb meals in my own kitchen.  I have no idea why I used to think that the only cooking I could do was in the microwave, or the oven.  If it didn’t come out of packages, and already seasoned, I didn’t think of it as real food. It either wasn’t real, or the food was too much work and trouble.  It was easier, and I thought cheaper, to buy the prepackaged. I think the only thing I don’t like about cooking is that the odor lingers so badly inRead More →

I have really gotten into cooking lately. I never realized how easy it was to cook and how creative you can be. I started out just heating things up in the microwave and only using canned goods. Now I have gotten into frying different types of veggies, boiling noodles and trying new recipes I find online. I have found that the more complicated the recipe, the more heat you need to use in the kitchen. Most of the time I need both burners on and the oven. The heat lately has been killing me. I think I will need to install a ductless mini splitRead More →

Periodically, the two of us wonder about our beach house. The two of us built our beach house several decades ago, when there were not as many technological upgrades as there are available today. The two of us find much the light with our absolutely wonderful beach house, even during the worst parts of the year.Lately, the temperatures around here have been more than cold. The two of us have absolutely been talking about our heating, ventilation, as well as A/C device. When the two of us originally built our beach house, we were thinking about adding radiant heat to our heating, ventilation, as wellRead More →

Sometimes I wonder if I should have moved out of the dorms while I was in college. As a freshman and a sophomore, I lived in a private room on a dorm hall. I was eager to move out after that because I really wanted to have my own bathroom. However,  when I moved into my own off-campus apartment, I realized how much more challenging it was. Instead of being right on campus, I had to ride my bike or drive to class every day. To make matters worse, my A/C was constantly breaking down and giving me trouble. Every time this would happen, IRead More →

When everyone in my family purchased a townhome, we knew that the cooling plan would be one of the most exact preferences that would be important. Everyone in my family moved to this area around six months ago, and we have found at our life is so much better after moving far south. It’s always been a dream to live in an area of the country where the summer season last for a long time. How are young stirs have enjoyed all of the activities that happened in the South, like water skiing, snorkeling, and surfing. My partner hasn’t been enjoying this type of weatherRead More →

I’m absolutely in love with country living. There’s truly not much better in life than sitting out front on your porch and a swing. Being able to watch the people walk by and enjoy the beautiful sunshine is really what makes my life so enjoyable. Living down South has been an absolute dream for me and my family. Though my kids don’t enjoy the heat so much, I thrive in it. My wife is also a pretty big fan of it. Occasionally it does get a Touch Too Much however as we have been getting some of the hottest temperatures on record.  Luckily our homeRead More →

There will be huge amounts of sleet as well as snow, which will fall at a legitimately quick rate. This will cause many delays to HolidayRead More →

When we were kids, the worst horror stories were about zombies and monsters and giants from outer space. Now, as an adult, my worst horror stories, the things cause me nightmares are problems with homeownership. Plumbing leaks, electrical problems, and trees busting through roofs are homeowner horror stories. Plumbing problems, such as leaking pipes and leaking faucets and broken water mains and clogged sewer lines are the worst because water and sewer can cause unbelievable amounts of damage to a home. My plumbing horror story begins with my leaving the southeast where the weather is hot and humid and moving to the northwest where lifeRead More →

In my kitchen, I have a kitchen faucet that is absolutely nothing special at all. The faucet is simple and does not even turn upward into an arch or anything. This has now become a problem for me because I recently bought this really pretty and functional pot for cooking pasta and soup. It is quite large and the label says it must be hand washed. It is quite challenging to wash the pot because of the kitchen faucet. Now, mind you, the faucet does not leak or anything. There is nothing really wrong with it per se. I just don’t like the fact thatRead More →

My dad went through all the planning phases and did all the studying up and then he headed off to the home improvement store to purchase all of the pipesRead More →

My partner and I recently bought our first house, but we absolutely are not that handy and do not suppose much about service and repairs in regards to anything around the house.

We started a tradition in our home last year where one night a week we have family game night.  It was designed to give us time to interact without the hindrance of cell phones, television, or other devices.  It has worked out great!. The last one, however, was a bit stressful because our younger son said that his brother was cheating at Monopoly.  He, admittedly, said that of course he did because that was the only way to win.I told him that cheating was not the way to go. I also told him that cheating in life is a sure way to land you inRead More →
