Owning a home necessitates a lot of maintenance and other work. Of course, there is a lot of work that is an absolute necessity and provides little enjoyment, but there is also work you can do on your home to customize the interior to fit your personal taste. This aspect of maintaining your home can be fun, especially if you are not actually doing the work yourself. One example of this kind of maintenance is installing new flooring. Many people are not happy with the floors that come with their home. Luckily installing new flooring is fairly simple and inexpensive. If you find carpet to be troublesome to keep clean, you may want to consider hardwood flooring, instead. Hardwood floors have been used for many years, and they can give your home a classic look. On the other hand, they are very versatile, so they also can look nice in very modern-looking homes, as well. For whatever reason, many houses and apartments in the United States come with carpeted floors. Carpeted floors can look nice, of course, but they can be problematic in many ways. Obviously, they can be annoying to clean. You have to vacuum them at least once a week, if not more often, simply so the carpet does not become too dusty. Vacuuming does nothing to remove stains, though. This means that if you ever spill wine or any other dark liquid on your carpet, you may never be able to fully remove the stain. Even professional carpet cleaning services cannot always remove carpet stains. Sometimes you have to replace the entire carpet, in order to fully eliminate the stains. Hardwood floors do not stain easily, as long as they are sealed properly. This is why you cannot trust your hardwood floor installation to anyone. You should make sure that the company installing your floors will do an excellent job. This includes sanding and sealing your floors properly, so they will last a very long time. The best floor installation companies to choose will be very forthright about the processes they use to install your floors. If they assure you that they sand your flooring with care and utilize the best sealing methods, they are probably a reliable company. One of the keys to proper floor installation is making sure that the panels of the floor are fitted together perfectly. The best hardwood flooring companies will take time to make sure that each panel is fitted together exactly perfectly. One sign of shoddy floor installation is floor panels that are not fitted together closely. You can tell if this is the case because there will be spaces between the tiles that you will be able to see. Even a properly installed hardwood floor needs to be cared for, though. Even though, there are not damaged as easily as carpeted floors, you should still do your best to keep them clean. Having a welcome mat or rug outside your door can collect some of the mud and dirt from outside, so it does cot get on your floor. If you take good care of your hardwood floors, you will be less likely to have to pay for floor repair or refinishing.
When I was training to be a CNA (certified nurse’s assistant) one of my instructors told me to treat every patient as if they were your mother or father. They said if we were able to envision one of our loved ones in that wheelchair or on that stretcher it would be easier to give great care and to take our time with that particular patient even during the stressful times. It is something that has stuck with me and something I have repeated to myself and to colleagues ever since. I am now a nurse practitioner and all these years later I still try my best to treat every patient I see like family. It’s a practice that seems to have been long forgotten by many health care providers in the industry and I think it’s one of the main reasons why my patients are so loyal and my practice does so well.
So, the other week when I had to take my mother to the new Urgent Care center in Charleston I was expecting to see the same kind of lackluster effort that has come to define our industry in recent months and years but instead she received top notch care. Just to make sure me being a nurse didn’t cause them to act any differently towards us, I kept my profession a secret to see what level of care they would give us.
When I called the urgent care center to get directions my call was picked up immediately by a very friendly and knowledgable member of the staff. She gladly gave me turn by turn instructions and she even told us that she would come out to the car to help get my mother into the clinic safely. She did this without being prompted or asked to do so which I thought showed a lot of compassion and understanding. When we arrived just a few minutes later (it was close to our house and very convenient to get to) she was in fact waiting for us and came out to the car with a wheelchair for my mother. She introduced herself as the charge nurse and we exchanged names as we walked inside. I noticed there was nobody waiting in the lobby and so we were able to go right back into the testing rooms. There was a respiratory therapist there that help administer a breathing test and a lab technician took some blood. I was a little surprised to see that Charleston’s newest Urgent Care center could perform so many hospital emergency room functions!
By the time the doctor came in the room to speak with us (maybe ten minutes at most) we had already been through a battery of tests and he had all the information in hand to digest and go over with us. He was very kind and easy to talk to which both my mother and I really liked. After some time I told him how impressed I was with the facility he was running and he explained that in addition to the Urgent Care center in Charleston, they were planning to open up another one nearby in the next year.
As the use of the internet continues to expand to all far “corners” of the globe, the quantity of users increases and the amount of information we have to share compounds! To me at least, it feels like I could listen to music every hour of every day and never run out of amazing music to listen to. I am constantly discovering new music that I with groove with. The more I discover, the more I realize just how much there is to discover. In fact, as of late, there have been so many shows flooding through the city, I can’t decide which ones to go to- since I can’t afford them all!
We all know that in a world that is continually growing at an exponential rate, to be competitive as a business you must also continue to grow, expand, and reach out to be successful. First off, having an online website will make it much easier for you to reach a lot more people. You also want to make sure your product is available or you are presenting it in the best way possible! This is where LED displays can come in to help! LED displays are practically for just about anywhere and anything. If you are a traveling sells person, including working at trade shows or rodeos, an LED panel is perfect because they can be used separately and spread out to help output info on your product, and attract possible customers into your display area. You can also easily connect the LED panels together and create one giant screen to really be an eye catcher. Another great benefit to investing in LED screens is that they are all very lightweight, and do not take much storage room- very practical for traveling.
If you are a performer of any kind, be it from rock star to circus performer, LED curtains and LED screens can greatly enhance your show. LED curtains are very flexible and can be set up practically anywhere, and even around other objects on stage. You can even change the angles of the curtains easily and change the whole feeling of the show between sets. You can choose to get very high resolution or low resolution LED displays to give off different effects. They even have the ability for video to be played on them to really set the tone for the show, and help take it to a whole new level for the audience. Today in a world of so much competition, enhancing the effects of the show can really help give your show being something creative and unique, offering something the fans can only experience if they go to the show.
All of these LED displays also have use in such places and theaters and business meetings! One can easily change the setting or mood of a theatrical performance just by changing the lighting! Having an LED screen to bring to a meeting, that easily sets up, and can display all the information on the screen for other’s to read increases communication and professionalism to a whole new level!
Overall LED displays are an investment that really could be the fulcrum you were looking for to speed your business off to more success! They are affordable, sustainable, economical, light-weight, practical, and convenient!
DUI Laws are complex, because there are many factors to weigh in. This includes:
The age of the driver – which can affect the penalties and how the case is handled.
Sobriety checkpoints – do these disregard your constitutional rights or are they indeed legal in the state of Colorado?
Injuries – were there any injuries to others involved, or was an accident recorded? How about fatalities? This would them be regarded as Vehicular Manslaughter While Intoxicated.
There are many other questions to ask as it relates to driving while intoxicated. If you were behind the wheel, you will also need to learn more about typical penalties handed out in the courtroom. This article provides a brief primer on some of the most common questions that Denver attorneys who handle DUI cases take on:
Can I refuse a field sobriety test and what is this exactly?
If you were stopped by a police officer on the roadway and were suspected of being intoxicated for one reason or another, you may have been asked to take one of three standardized field sobriety tests. These include the walk and turn, which is abbreviated as “WAT”, “HGN” for Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, and “OLS” for the one leg stand. What many drivers are not aware of is that taking any one of these three tests is in no way required by the law. If you are however asked to take a Breathalyzer test or some of other chemical tests such as blood and urine tests, then this is by all means mandatory in the eyes of the law.
What are some of the signs of an intoxicated driver?
There are many signs of intoxication that a trained police officer is able to pinpoint as probable cause for pulling over a driver. A few examples include driving erratically, such as speeding, weaving to and from lanes on a roadway, or suddenly starting and stopping. In addition, if the driver has a hard time identifying themselves when pulled over or has red shot eyes – these are some indications of intoxication. Still, there are innocent explanations to unusual behavior, which a DUI attorney in Colorado can help to prove.
What does failing a Breathalyzer test mean?
The legal limit for driving while under the influence of alcohol in the state of Colorado is 0.08%. As another note, there may be some enhancements in sentencing based on exceeding alcohol intoxication levels.
Is there more than one kind of DUI?
Absolutely. A DUI can also entail driving under the influence of drugs and not only alcohol alone. The problem with these forms of DUI however is that there’s no real way to test the level of intoxications for drugs as is the case with alcohol.
Some examples of drugs that are commonly found in the bloodstream of DUI offenders are marijuana, heroin, cocaine and street or party drugs. In addition, it should be duly noted that drivers are sometimes arrested for DUI while under the influence of prescription medications, if the warning label reads: do not to operate motor vehicles while using.
I am thankful that my bankruptcy proceedings are finished with and that I can now gather up the pieces and move on with my life. Things are bound to be calmer and life should return to it’s once normal state now that my finances and debt obligations have been addressed. My outstanding credit card debt has been consolidated into one smaller loan with a lower interest payment, my mortgage has been re-worked to allow me to stay in my home and in general my assets are stable enough for me to resume my life. I owe all of this to the wonderful attorney I hired from the Bankruptcy Law Professionals of Colorado, the best group of bankruptcy attorneys in Colorado. If you or anyone you know is in need of help during a time of financial distress, you should give them a call and know that whatever you have to pay them, it is worth and and definitely money well spent.
What I loved about my experience with the Bankruptcy Law Professionals of Colorado was their compassion towards my plight. I came into the situation expecting that they could help me control the creditors calling, that they could help liquidate or re-organize my assets and help me evaluate my situation, however I didn’t expect the level of caring that I received. They could sense that I was in over my head and that I was very nervous about everything that was going on. My lawyer, Charles has been doing this line of work for over twenty years now and his experience and calmness during all the chaos was very reassuring. He helped me first determine if I even needed to go through bankruptcy and at every step along the way he was there to assure me everything would be OK. I couldn’t ask for anything more from a bankruptcy attorney.
There are many people like me in the United States today, people living beyond their financial means and living off of credit or borrowed money. Many people fell on hard times when the economy collapsed in 2009 and simply haven’t recovered due to poor job growth and high unemployment rates. The simple fact is that a lot of people could benefit from filing for bankruptcy but they are reluctant to do so, probably because they cannot justify spending money on a lawyer if they are having a hard time paying their bills. What they don’t realize is that a bankruptcy lawyer can almost act as a financial advisor and help you to not only solve your financial woes but to give you the tools to fix them in the future.
To anyone that is currently feeling financial stress due to unpaid credit card or medical bills, you don’t have to suffer like that any longer. You may think you are alone in your fight to get out of debt, but as long as law firms like the Bankruptcy Law Professionals of Colorado are here to help you get out of debt and get life back to normal.
It is natural to want pictures of your friends and family on special occasions. Nowadays, too many people rely on camera phones for all the photo-taking needs. This is fine for everyday uses, but when it comes to special occasions, it is nice to get a real photograph. That is why many people choose to hire professional photographers for large gatherings. This can be too formal for some settings, though. An alternative that has been gaining popularity recently is the rental photo booth. Rental photo booths are small yet spacious portable photo booths that people reserve for special occasions. In the past, photo booths were typically seen in malls, airports, amusement parks, and many other places where many people go. Nowadays, this sort of photo booth is not as common, and rental photo booths have become very popular. Rental photo booths are better than traditional photo booths in many regards. Rental photo booths let you take as many photographs as you want. If you rent the booth for three hours, you can take as many photographs as you can within that timeframe. By the same token, you do not have to pay each time you use it like you would with a mall photo booth. Since it is rented for the night, everyone can use it as much as they want. Another way in which the rental photo booths are superior to the old ones is the difference in the quality of the material they are printed on. Rental photo booths print the photographs on high-quality material, that can last a very long time. This is much better than a cheap photograph that can deteriorate easily. Many photo booth rental companies provide scrapbooks to house all the photographs taken over the course of the night. This is a great way to keep track of all of the countless photographs that can be taken in one night. In many ways, rented photo booths give you the freedom to take more photographs and a wider variety of photographs than a professional photographer. One reason for this is the fact that you have unlimited chances to take the perfect photograph with a photo booth. Secondly, since everyone will have a chance to use the photo booth over the course of the night, you can take your time to take a good photograph. Since photo booths can only contain so many people, you do not need to worry about coordinating more than ten people at a time for a simple photograph. Also, when you rent a photo booth, you have the opportunity to do so many things you could never do with the old kind of photo booth. One difference is the wide selection of props that is often provided by the rental company. This coupled with the fact that you can take as many pictures as you want creates endless possibilities. Another benefit of the rental booths is their advanced touch screen and display screen, which enable you to see your photos before they print.
The people who are seriously thinking about moving forward with the Oregon ranches for sale are the ones who are going to end up making a lot of money. Currently, the ranch prices are really low, but I bet that they will sky rocket and eventually be a really smart investment. So much so that if you were to eventually sell this land that you would make a ton of money off of it. I am impressed that this sort of thing is really how it all works. I am also impressed that there are people who want to think about possibly selling their land and really thinking that this is something that should change or is something that you could possibly think about changing. I know that when it comes to the way that we are going to be moving forward with the sale of the ranch, it will bring up a lot of different ideas and emotions. I mean, people spend their entire lives on ranches and taking care of the land and the animals and so to think of leaving that whole life behind has got to be really hard for a lot of people. Especially those people who did not ever have children and so they could not pass on their ranch to their children. Because there are so many ranches in Colorado and Texas, there is a lot of this happening. I think that there is something to be said about the Colorado ranches for sale and that you can have a great life in that state.
Environmental activist movements have made huge changes in the world of kitchen appliances. These days a consumer will want one of two options when selecting an appliance – they want the appliance very cheap or very energy efficient. Most are aware of the fact that a newer appliances are constantly being improved with regards to their energy efficiency, and those who are very conscious about energy use will feel very noble in selecting a such an improved product. Similarly, the more frugal minded may realize that an older, less expensive appliance may cost less in the short term, but added on the higher energy demands and the the inevitable price of appliance parts and suddenly the used appliance sounds like a gamble.
Which ever way you want to go, try to choose a local appliance store that will give you plenty of options. Supporting local businesses while contributing to the conservation goals that brought us such great appliances is just good for the community. Not only that, but a local store is more likely to develop a personal relationship with the customer and truly understand their appliance needs. Bigger chains may have everything you think you need, but local businesses attract more passionate workers who truly live the product and service they provide. Besides that, a large chain appliance store is typically more interested in selling a brand new products at huge markups, and if you ever want to try and sell them back a used appliance, forget about it. Support local businesses with your appliance purchase and I promise that you will not be disappointed with the choice.

I am so fed up with my car. I’ve had this car for about eight years and it has given me nothing but trouble. It constantly beeps at me to get an oil change, and when I do get the oil changed, it beeps at me again saying that I need to get something else fixed. This whole scenario has been going on for the last two years consistently. In the summertime, my car loves to flash the check engine light because it apparently heats up really fast; however, in wintertime, I can barely get it started some mornings because something is wrong. Regardless of the time of year, something is always going wrong with my car. Unfortunately, I haven’t received a promotion with my job for the last three years to allow me to afford a second, better car; so, I guess I’m stuck with this one.
It is just really frustrating because it isn’t as if I bought a cheap car to begin with and then got problems. I bought a very decently priced, borderline expensive car and I had issues with it starting three years in. I’ve probably taken my car into the auto repair shop about ten times in the last four or five years alone. So, I’m just waiting to save up enough money to get a new car in the next year or so. I definitely don’t want to keep the same make because I don’t know if it is the type of car that is causing me all of these problems.
My vision when we first purchased our home was to install a bright red front door. I have always wanted a bright color to greet visitors when they arrive at my home, and red is my favorite color lately. So, last weekend we finally made the purchase and installed the new door. Once it was on, I realized that the door alone was not going to be enough to realize my vision for the look and feel when you approach the house, I wanted my friends to see something that was visually impacting, not minimal but elegant. The solution we came up with was to add some faux stone around the entryway and up from the ground to the lower level of the windows. Because faux stone panels are incredibly easy to install without a professional, and they are light and come in various patterns and colors, we decided this was going to be the easiest and quickest option. I love the look and feel of rounded and smooth river stones, and we found faux stone panels that looked identical. So we purchased those this week and are planning to install them around the door and the lower part of the walls this weekend. The lights on either side of the front door are going to fit perfectly with the look of the faux stone panels of river stones, and the deep grey color is really going to make the red door pop, which is what I wanted for the entryway all along.
Lots of children are fascinated with aviation. Only a small portion of them actually consider piloting as a career when they are older. This is because learning how to pilot an aircraft is very hard work that requires a lot of patience and focus. Unless you are very dedicated to learning, you will probably not be able to acquire that skill. If you do learn, you may want to think about pursuing a career as a commercial airline pilot. Flight airline training teaches you how to be a commercial airline pilot. The ability to pilot a large aircraft is a very marketable skill to have, so if you do know how to fly an airplane, it is not a bad idea to pursue piloting as a career. To fly a lot of the larger aircraft that are most commonly utilized by the major airlines, you may need to get more training. A lot of these aircraft require a type rating. Type ratings are certifications that allow you to fly specific aircraft. Because so many aircraft are so uniquely complicated, many aircraft require you go through this special training to fly them. Completing the training to acquire a type rating to fly a Boeing 737 is a good idea. The Boeing 737 type rating is a good one to acquire because it is such a widely used type of aircraft. You will almost surely be able to find a commercial airline that is in need of someone that knows how to fly a Boeing 737.
Every homeowner in the nation needs to be aware of the dangers of neglecting necessary maintenance. The more components of your home fall into disrepair, the harder it will be to get anything fixed. For obvious reasons, it is infinitely better to take care of maintenance issues as they arise, instead of procrastinating. One of the main things that you must take care of if you want your house to last a long time is your roof. Many houses need to be re-roofed every few years. Even if your roof was recently re-roofed, you can still develop a leak in a relatively short amount of time. If there is any possibility of this, you need to deal with it right away. Professional roofers will be able to identify any problems in your roof, and then you can decide what to do about them. Of course, you should probably just have them fix whatever the problem is. Allowing it to go unfixed is not smart, since the problem will probably progress with time. A far better way to handle it is to bite the bullet and simply pay for the repairs. Good roofers will not overcharge you and will provide excellent service. Not only that, they will be able to fix your roof and help prevent future leaks. They can even show you what to look for, so you know right away next time you have a roofing problem. One of the most obvious examples of a potential roofing problem is a leak. Leaks are so common yet so destructive. Since most materials that comprise your home become ruined if they are soaked in water for a long time, it is not hard to see why leaks are so destructive. Since they are so common, though, there is no way to ensure that you will never have a leaky roof. Luckily, there are ways to significantly reduce the chances. The best and most obvious way to prevent roof leaks is to be very vigilant, when it comes to your roof. You should either learn exactly what symptoms to look for, or you should have professional roofers inspect your roof on a regular basis. Getting regular roof inspections is a smart and cheap way to keep yourself aware of the condition of your roof. Many professional roofers actually offer free inspections and estimates, so if there is nothing wrong with your roof, you do not need to pay. Even the roofers that do charge for inspections charge very little, and awareness of your roof’s problems is worth the price. Once you do notice a symptom of a roof problem or a roofer identifies one, you should deal with getting it fixed right away. If you get it fixed immediately, it will probably not cost you as much money. Similarly, if you wait to deal with it, the leak will have time to seriously deteriorate your roof and ceiling. It is not hard to see that investing in roof repair is clearly better than allowing your house to rot from the roof down.
Airline travel is not the most convenient thing, but it is the most convenient way to traverse long distances. There is simply on other efficient way to travel many miles in a short amount of time. That being said, going to the airport is incredibly stressful. There are long lines for everything from the bathrooms to the ticket counter. Plus, airport security makes things take even longer. Virtually the only thing you can do to make your trip to the airport less stressful is arrange a ride. The type of airport transportation you select for yourself makes a big difference. Shuttles are often provided by most major airports, but shuttles are not very convenient or efficient. Shuttles take way to long to get you where you are going, and they are not always free. If you are going to spend money on airport transportation, you might want to find a way to get where you are going much sooner. There is no sense spending money on something that may take a couple hours to get you somewhere that is only a mile or two away. You have to wait for the shuttle to show up, you have to wait for boarding, then you have to wait while the driver drops everyone off. If you are one of the last stops, you will be waiting for quite awhile. To avoid all of this, you can simply rent a limousine, instead. Limousines are a luxurious and efficient means of getting to and from the airport. You will be amazed at how quickly you will get where you are going, as opposed to taking a shuttle. The point of a limousine service is to take you from point A to point B in a luxurious and efficient way. Unlike a shuttle, they are specifically attending to you, which means you will not have to wait around for anyone else. Many limousine services even specialize in airport transportation, so they have a few tricks to make the process very easy and enjoyable. One of these tricks is keeping track of flight delays. Some of the best limo services are very mindful of flight schedules, so they know when to pick up their clients. Flight times change so much that it can be difficult to coordinate drivers without this feature. In addition to keeping track of flight times, some limousine services also provide discounted rates for businesses. They are aware that corporate clients are their most reliable clients, so they offer special deal to keep them coming back. Often, corporate limousine rates are actually quite reasonable. Obviously, you do not have to be a businessperson to rent a limousine. Whatever your reason for traveling, a limousine ride from the airport can save you so much time and stress. Good limousine services even provide twenty-four hour customer service. This is absolutely vital, since there is always a chance that you will not be able to find your limo. If there is a customer service line, you will be able to call the limo rental company, no matter what time it is. This can save you from getting stuck at an airport.
Living in Denver, Colorado is wonderful. 355 days of sunshine a year, mostly mild winters and plenty of indoor/outdoor activities to keep you busy. The only downside is that it can be very dry, especially during the winter months. Which can wreak havoc on your skin. During those dry winter months I practically bathe in moisturizer. It is the only way to keep your skin looking dewy and gorgeous. So take five minutes for you, making an effort to maintain a skin care routine will pay off in the long run.
So skin care in Denver is a very important process to all Colorado women. For more tips see below:
Tip 1. Cleanse & moisturize twice daily. It is vital to cleanse your face from all the grime day and night, and to replenish your skins moisture with some lotion.
Tip 2. Drink plenty of water. Water is the best way to keep you and therefore your skin hydrated which is the key to clear, beautiful skin.
Tip 3. Wear chapstick or lip balm, reapply throughout the day. Lips are the first place to show dryness, so arm your self and be prepared.
Tip 4. Make sure to remove make up daily, I know it is tempting to just say screw it and go to bed, but it is worth it in the long run to wash it off.
Tip 5. Stay out of the sun, and use sunscreen. Sun damage is the leading cause of wrinkles and fine lines. Just think to yourself any change in skin color is a sign of skin damage.
A kids dentist can be an invaluable asset for parents. They are specialists that know the in’s and the out’s of pediatric dentistry. There are a lot of complexities. Your general dentist may be able to figure out all of the special features and quirks of working on a kid’s teeth. But it is better to go to a specialist pediatric dentist because she or he is trained in this particular field. But you also cannot forget that they are also trained to work with kids. They have adept social skills when it comes to working with the little ones. So this is more than just technical information. If you take your kids to a special pediatric dentist, there is a higher likelihood that they will have a positive experience and will thus have a positive impression of dental health. I think that it is important not to have too many negative impression in a kid’s memory about the dentist so that there is not disincentive for maintaining good dental health. You want your kids to be able to sustain proper dental health without kicking and screaming. Because what is going to happen when you are gone? What happens when you are not there to remind them to floss or to brush? They may stop. Or at least they will not be as disciplined as they should be. You should be aware of these factors and realize that there is a connection between the positive experiences a kid has at a young age.
When my wife told me she wanted a water feature and I told her she could have whatever she wanted, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I went to work and came home one day to a salesman who was over from Purely Ponds trying provide my wife with a quote. I didn’t like to get into the middle of a conversation that had already begun so I left them to it and sat down to watch some TV. My wife came downstairs about an hour later with a huge smile on her face, I asked to see the quote and she said that he didn’t have one yet. Confused, I asked why and she responded that it was a custom job and required drawings to be made up, she said they’d be ready in a week. I didn’t think much about it, as long as she was happy, I was happy.
We got the quote and the plans a week later and I was amazed, I had no idea they could do the things they were doing with water gardens these days. There was this technology they used called Rain Xchange that captured rainwater and used it to operate the water feature. So, that basically made it self-sustainable and that was a pretty cool idea to me, I was looking forward to putting in a lot of time maintaining this thing. The rainwater could be re-used for other things as well, not just the water feature.
My kids finally all moved out of the house this last year. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids, but having the house just for my husband and I is something we have kind of been missing for the last twenty years. Now with an empty house, everything feels way too big. With only two people it is a little crazy to have a four-bedroom house. Plus, even though my kids have moved out they haven’t moved far so it isn’t like we need to keep the extra space for when the come back to visit. So, my husband and I have decided to move into a smaller house, a much smaller house. Plus with the money we will get from selling our old house we will be able to afford a fairly lavish vacation, something we haven’t had the opportunity to do since our honeymoon. A lot of our things are going to be sold or given away. We don’t need much at our new place after all. The one unexpected thing about moving after so long, especially with kids, is just how much junk you accumulate in that time. We had to rent a dumpster just to clear everything out, and that was just for the things we couldn’t sell or donate. I tried to give some of the things to my kids but of course most twenty-year-olds have no interest whatsoever in keeping or hauling around a letter they wrote to Santa when they were five or a clay pot they made it the third grade. It killed me a bit to see some of these things go but I know it is for the good. We now are on our way to our dream retirement in our cute, small home and thanks to the dumpster service we can do it without having to move a lifetime worth of junk.

So this will be my second attempt at having my Dyson vacuum repaired by a shop here in Denver but I am definitely not going back to the first place I took it to. These vacuums were supposed to be built well and last for years and years so what is going on? When I turn it on it just makes this horribly loud screeching noise just like when a super cold car starts up and the belt is going bad on it. Who knows, maybe all it needs is a new belt but I don’t want to go through the hassle of ordering a new belt, install said belt and fire it up again just to realize that that wasn’t the problem in the first place and now I have to start all over again except that I already spent fifty bucks on the part and on shipping. I guess this is why you find a mechanic you trust and you stick with them through the thick and thin. Many of us normal folk aren’t very apt at fixing things these days so that is why there are specialty stores like vacuum repair shops that we can take our goods to if they need to be fixed.
We are having guests over for my husband’s retirement party next week so whoever I choose to fix this vacuum has to be done with it in a few days time so I can have enough time to clean the place before guests arrive. I don’t want to have to hire a carpet cleaning company.
I thought I tore my ACL while playing flag football with my friends on Saturday. I went to Tempe urgent care and luckily all I did was sprain the ligaments in my knee. I was playing wide receiver and went out on a pattern looking for the ball. The quarterback three it poorly so I stopped and tried to put my gears in reverse in order to be able to make the catch. Well, in the process of stopping on a dime, my knee gave out and it hurt so bad that I started yelling at the top of my lungs. All my teammates huddled around me asking what was wrong and all I could tell them was that my knee hurt. I could tell by the looks on everyone’s face that they were thinking what I was thinking. We had seen so many pro football players blow out their ACLs in similar ways that of course a thirty something week end warrior won’t be able to stand up to similar stress. My friends picked me up and carried me over to a car. There was a little debate about it, and I actually said that I didn’t mind waiting, but a couple of my friends left the game early in order to take me to Tempe urgent care. While I was there, I was treated very well. When the doctor saw me, he ran some tests and realized that I didn’t tear anything. I just strained the ligaments of my knee so, with a little time, I will be alright.
