I Needed a Chiropractor when I Was Pregnant

I was so looking forward to becoming pregnant. My husband and I wanted to have a large family, so we started planning for one as soon as we were married. God must have been on board with our plans because I got pregnant on our honeymoon. We were both so deliriously happy, and we started making plans and dreaming the day we found out. I wish I would have had the foresight to get a Redding chiropractor on board right from the start, but I had no idea at first that my pregnancy would have gone a lot smoother.

For every pregnancy symptom, it seemed like I was a prime candidate for it. Continue reading I Needed a Chiropractor when I Was Pregnant

Texas Apartment Hunting with My Favorite Niece

My favorite niece had just graduated from college and was looking forward to her new job as an art teacher, as was I, as her new job would put her very near where I lived in Texas. While her job was in Arlington, I was looking for apartments in Grand Prairie as a bit of a compromise between her commute to work and commute to where I was living a bit west of the city of Dallas. I looked forward to spending time with my niece and showing her around the area and taking her into Dallas for some incredible shopping opportunities.

My niece is my older sister’s daughter and my sister is 12 years older than myself. This puts my niece and I fairly close in age and I have enjoyed a great relationship with her throughout her life. Continue reading Texas Apartment Hunting with My Favorite Niece

I Love Living Closer to My Sister

My sister was so excited about me moving closer to her. We both grew up in New York, but she had moved to Georgia not long after graduating from college. I had been there to visit her a few times, and I fell in love with the area as well. When a job opportunity presented itself, I knew that I was going to try and get it. My sister was probably more excited than me when I got it! She sent me an email that said to click here, and it had about eight different apartment complex websites for me to look at. Continue reading I Love Living Closer to My Sister

My Parents Gave Me Their Blessings

When I told my mom and dad that I was looking at apartments in Midtown Atlanta, they both got so worried. They had all these visions in their heads of me living in a ghetto section of town, when nothing further could be from the truth. The apartment that I wanted to get was at The Pad on Harvard, and it is one of the nicest places I have seen on my search for an apartment that would not give my parents heart failure. I understand about them worrying because I am their only child, and they live nearly 400 miles away from me. Continue reading My Parents Gave Me Their Blessings

I Wanted to Move There Too

My friend moved into a new apartment a few months ago, and I went to see her for the first time last week. I was really surprised when I got there because I was not expecting it to be as nice as it was. I was just thinking of her old apartment, which was in a bad part of town, and I guess I transferred those feelings to this apartment, which were completely unfounded. I liked it so much that I went home and looked at the community website for the complex because I wanted to get more information on it for myself.

I really liked how clear cut and precise everything on the website was. They did not need flowery words or gimmicks to convince people to give them a try because what they offer is plenty enough of a draw. For the community amenities, the residents who live there have water, sewage and garbage pickup included on their bills, and there is a playground for children as well as a bark park for dogs. What I liked best is that there is a night patrol every night, which definitely lets residents feel much safer there. Continue reading I Wanted to Move There Too

Started Talking About Living Together

If you go out with a girl for this long, then this conversation starts to become expected. I was ready for it, although I did not have much more than a warning about how it might not be that easy to live with me. I have shared apartments with a lot of guys and I do not think any of them were any good at picking up their stuff or cleaning up after themselves. There was always stuff stacked up in the sink and some of the time the place would stink because no one would take the trash out. I think I have gotten better about that, although it is mostly because I have been trying to be better for Shelly. It is not like I think that I am going to do a lot better than her, she has a great job for starters and she is very good looking as well. In fact the two of us together could probably save up enough money for a small house if we tried. Continue reading Started Talking About Living Together
