The Life of the Party

This year to celebrate Lunar New Year, I decided to have a party in my condo at Boulevard 88 in Singapore and invite all of my friends. This was my first time hosting such an event, and I wanted everything to be perfect, so I planned in advance for it. I crafted the perfect menu of foods that would be served at the party. I even meticulously made just the right play-list full of music that would be great for keeping people entertained during the party. Normally I’ll just order a pizza, grab some chips and drinks from the store, and put on anything when I want to have a get together, but this party was special, so I put lots of thought into it.

I had a time set for the party to start, and I didn’t expect anyone to actually show up on time, because they normally don’t when I have a gathering, but this time, everyone came at exactly the right moment. I was constantly going around the room while the guests talked to each other, making sure that everyone had something to eat or drink. It was a bit more stressful than I anticipated. I tried to sit down and relax for a moment, but I couldn’t stop thinking about how much food and drink was left.

As time passed at the party, I became less stressed and let myself have some fun by dancing with the guests. Music has a way of getting everyone to let go of their inner thoughts and just put their energy towards something that will be entertaining. It was a good party, and I was glad that everyone came, but next year, I think I’ll leave the party for someone else to throw. I’d prefer to just be a guest.

Liking the New Security System from ADT in Memphis

I started out working by delivering newspapers as a teenager. I actually started before that. I would make things as a younger child and sell them. I could work with wood and ceramics. A local place had a kiln, and I would hand-paint figurines, vases and stuff, have them fired and then sell them. Now I have a career and work hard providing for my family. It upsets me that there was the need to install a security system at our home, but I am happy that ADT in Memphis was there for us.

Our neighborhood started to get hit with a bunch of thefts and burglaries. We were kind of relaxed about home security around here. I would leave the garage door open up front while working in the back. Well, after a chainsaw disappeared, I figured it was time to get some cameras put up that would record around the clock. I got that with the home security system we had installed from ADT in Memphis.

Staying in the Charlotte Area for Work, Family and Fun

Our new apartment has a courtyard that is amazing. The pool is like one you would find at a resort, and there is a nice fire pit area and clubhouse. We like our neighbors, and the pace and attitude of the lifestyle here at these Ballantyne NC apartments called The District South suits us quite well. The kids have a playground, and we all enjoy the swimming pool. They even have a car care center. Stuff you want or need is here on site. They thought of the things tenants would want and made sure you had access to it here.

We like our apartment with its high ceilings that are up to nine feet. I like seeing the ceramic surround the tub, and we both like the big walk-in shower. We have big closets, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen.

Finding Relief from My Pain

For as long as I can remember I have had very painful periods. They would get so bad that I would be bedridden for several days each month. I had a bad reaction to hormonal birth control so I thought I would just have to suffer forever with the pain, or at least until menopause. This all changed when I read an article online about chiropractic care for menstrual issues. After seeing this I found a Peoria chiropractor who advertised that they could help with this sort of thing. I made an appointment for the week before my cycle was supposed to start.

I was cautiously optimistic as I went in for my appointment.

Dancing with My Cool Friends

I’m ready to go dancing after seeing the Redding chiropractor. My back was giving me trouble for the longest time, and I was invited to go dancing with some friends, but I declined because of my back trouble. They told me that I should probably get some help for my back, since it had been bothering me for so long. I had been putting it off because my schedule was so busy with work, and I could handle the pain with a bit of aspirin. All of this was unnecessary, because the pain could have been fixed in only a few minutes.

I finally decided to stop procrastinatiing and made an appointment with the chiropractor. When I told him how long I had been having the pain, the chiropractor told me that I should have come in to see him sooner, because the pain was only going to get worse the longer I waited. He gave a treatment for the pain and told me not to do anyrthing that would put too much stress on my back while it was healing.

We Need a Little Assistance Here and There with Getting Things Done

I have realized lately that I am no spring chicken anymore. always been a pretty active person, but life is moving a lot slower for me these days. So, I often have to get help with a lot of things that I need to get done. I called around for tree service in Nassau County recently because I just can’t climb ladders like I used to. My trees are not very tall, and they can easily be worked on by anyone who can climb easily. But this and other things that I need to do are just not easy for me anymore.

I used to be in the military. In fact, I am retired from the military now. I spent decades giving my country my all. I also served during two different wars. I know a lot of people can’t understand the that sort of life, but I was made for it.
