When people used to say that things are always bigger and better in Texas, I just kind of laughed. Now that I live here, I have realized that it is something that Texans say with pride because it is true. I got my first taste of that when I started looking at apartments online. I had looked at an online ad that said to click here for more information, so that is what I did. That led me to The Forum which is in Grand Prairie, which is the area that I was looking to move to.
I was expecting to see some decent apartments, but I had no idea that I was going to find one that is as nice as where I now live. Read More
Even before I went online to look at apartments in Dallas uptown, I had a feeling I knew where I was going to live. I had passed by Routh Street Flats a few times, and I really liked everything that I was able to see from the road. I knew that it was luxury apartments, and that is what I was looking for. Instead of searching for apartments in general, I searched for their website so I would be able to look at some pictures and find out some details on all of the features that are offered to the residents there.
I knew that they had to be plentiful, and I was not disappointed at all. Read More
I thought that it would be easy enough to write out a check for someone who had done some work for me. Since it was going to be an ongoing project, I figured I would just do this maybe once every two weeks, and the other person agreed to this. He asked me after the first check if he could get a pay stub with it, so I went online to see if I could find something to do this. A friend knew I was looking and told me to check this out, a website he had found when he was looking for something similar.
The pay stub maker looked to very easy to use, and I also liked the appearance of the pay stub. Read More
Being an athlete for most of my life has really taken a toll on my body. I’ve had a lot of different injuries before, but I’ve always seemed to bounce back right away. Most recently, I ended up with a stress fracture. I run on the cross-country team, so my body is usually well conditioned. I guess this time I just ran a little too hard. My coach told me to go see his favorite San Jose chiropractor for treatment. He said that he sends all of his athletes there, because this chiropractor is the best in the area. If my coach is recommending something, that means a lot. It takes a lot to get him to say anything nice. Read More
It has been much more complicated than I was hoping it was going to be, but we are almost done with all of the technical stuff and we have started to get ready to move. Of course the house is not exactly perfect and there are quite a few things to do. I need to find someone to do some tree pruning in Long Island because there is a huge dead limb over the driveway, exactly in the place where you would park your car and obviously that is exactly where the people are going to be coming and going from. I do not think it would be any fun for it to fall on a person or a vehicle, but most of all I do not want it to come down on me or my beautiful little pick up truck. That just would not do either of us any good at all. Read More
There are lots of reasons why someone might get paid without having a pay stub. The most common reason would be for contractors or for workers who are oinly doing work one time. Since the person paying the wage owed is not responsible for handling taxes on this kind of transaction, it is not uncommon to just write out a check. This was typically what I would do in the past when I needed to write someone a check, but that changed not that long ago. My accountant told me about a making pay stub app that he uses for any subcontractors doing work on his house or business, and he suggested that I use the same one.
He explained that writing a check is fine, but that it also needs to be documented properly rather than just a line in a bank register. He said that it would go a long way too if I was ever audited. While I would have no problems with one since I report everything honestly, it would make the audit go much quicker if I had a better paperwork trail. Read More
I thought my life was over when I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, but it turns out that it was one of the best things that could have happened to me. It caused me to re-evaluate my entire life, and I realized that there were not many aspects that I liked about it. I was not happy with where I was living, and I surely was not happy with the people I thought were my friends. Once I started treatment, one of the first things I did was look at apartments in Newport News.
I wanted to get in a better area of town, and I wanted to get away from people who were just a bad influence in my life. Read More
My dad told me that I needed to spend some of the money I was earning. I told him about saving for retirement and being careful. Dad is our accountant. He is a CPA, and he knows quite a bit about finance. He could retire, but he doesn’t. He told me that our books were great, and our retirement was more than on track. He told me that we could at least move into a better place. He showed us some pictures of luxury apartments for St Petersburg FL, and he then showed us pictures of our place. I could see what he was getting at.
My wife and I have stayed in the same apartment since we were married. We just kept putting money away and investing to retire early. Read More
When I became a widow, I had a lot of things to think about. Losing my husband was hard enough, but I also had a very young child to think about. I knew that I could not afford to live on our own because we did not have life insurance, so I stayed with my parents for a year until I got back on my feet. I knew that it was time to start looking at apartments for Silver Spring MD residents when I woke up smiling each day instead of crying, so I started my search.
One of the great things about my job is that I am able to work from home. Read More
My husband and I had a huge decision to make. We could either look at Stone Oak apartments in San Antonio or we could talk to a realtor about buying a house here in town. I was not sure which way we should go, so I just decided to go ahead and look at both options. I looked at houses first, but I was not able to find one that really jumped out at me. The opposite was true when I looked at apartments though. I looked at one in particular and really fell in love with what I saw.
I had never lived in an apartment before, nor had my husband. Read More
