Shoddy cellphone repairs

My husband bought me a new cellphone for an early Christmas present. First my son went running by accidentally got knocked on the floor. The screen was cracked and the touch screen wouldn't move. So we sent it back, they replaced the screen but they never checked to see if the phone was operable. They mailed it back to us. We called them now we're mailing it back they promised to replaced it as soon as they received ours in the mail. We're hoping they do if not it's going to be a big fight getting a new phone.

Weight loss pilss that work

My girlfriends daily exercise routine is too strenuous I believe. It takes her hours to recoup from it. Yes she is about sixty pounds over weight but what took years to put on is going to take time to come off. Even as overweight as she is she is still toned up for her size. The diet pills that she uses don't seem to work as good as what they claim. I suggested to her to check into a site that I found online. You can also view it at http://www.weightlosspillsthatwork.org/. She may find a different program that's more suitable for her.

Gold fish aquarium

It was so much fun setting up our aquarium about 8 months ago. We started with tropical fish but for some reason they didn't want to survive very well and after two months our six fish were dead. So we went to small gold fish about an inch and a half long each. At that time they didn't really need too much food. Now six months later these little gold fish have grown into small monsters most of them exceeding five inches in length. The thirty gallon aquarium is getting too small for everybody.

Hair loss shampoos

Growing old takes toll on all of us in one way or another unless you're one of the really lucky ones. Arthritis can be one of the most painful things as you grow old. They say stay moving with exercise is the most important thing. My father in law said once you stop moving its all down hill from there. With my husband's thinning hair we were looking into hair loss shampoos to try to slow down the situation. Everything takes time and I keep on telling him to have patience with the situation.

Closet repair

Thank goodness my husband is a carpenter. I was running out of closet space. There's a lot of things in life you just can't seem to get rid of.Even though some things you collect had been around forever you just can't seem to part with them. So I ask my husband to re-do the closet. He completely tore it apart and put in five shelf closet organizer for me. Now I have lots of room. I did happen to throw out a couple pairs of old shoes.

USB drives

I'm dreaming of one particular present for Christmas. The new Apple iPad sixteen GB with Wi Fi. It's probably just a dream because at the moment not really that affordable for us. It's just one of those things that you must have. I've looked them all over and had a great experience trying it out. The only thing that I can see negative for me is that I need more usb drives. I just have to add a multiple plug in chord on the end to take care of all my needs on it. I hope it's just not a dream.

Korean clothes

One of my most favorite colors to wear is white. The only problem with white is trying to keep it clean. Most of my white tops also have some kind of lace built in to them. I'm always shopping for a white or yellow new top on Ebay. Some of the most beautiful tops come from Korea. even though I am petite and expect to wear  a size small , the small size in Korea is extra extra small. So when ordering tops from them I have to order a medium just to make sure that it fits properly.

Camper trailer

   For years we have loved going up to the Adirondack mountains camping. Old Forge New York is our families play ground. The wilderness up there is extravagant. Any place you turn to take a picture is like a postcard. We've actually made some family postcards and sent them out  showing our adventure.  Normally we're packing up everything  including our tent. This spring we're buying a camper trailer so they'll be a lot less work at our site.
  
   Two years ago at our camp site even being as careful as we are putting up all food so the animals don't wander in looking for stuff we had a mama and baby bear at 1:30 in the morning come walking through. I think they were mad that we didn't have any food laying around because they thought they would rough up the tent as in to tell us to throw them something sweet to eat.  Very scary being in that tent that night not knowing if those claws would rip through. So having a camping trailer will feel somewhat safer.

Winter's cold

With the cold coming or just getting here I tried to hibernate in our house for winter. Winter could last cold temperature wise up to six months in New York State. Luckily we called November already over but this November brought lots of rain which brought lots of mud that of course nobody cares for except for our son. His favorite place is in the side yard with his toys down and a rain suit on playing in the mud in his small pretend lake.

Black friday

After that great Thanksgiving meal we're getting to bed early. After studying all the sales ads we're going to need lots of sleep for the next day. We've found  five different items that we just must have at the price that they're offered on Black Friday. I think the excitement of that day is very contagious just like being in an auction or a gambler at the casino. It's all about the chase and if you can beat the other guy you've won the game.

Energy conservation

With gas prices rocketing up again we try to make sure we do things to conserve energy. My husband replaced the plugs and wires in our truck next he did an oil change. It does make a difference. We're experiencing two miles to the gallon more. In an ad in heartland America we also found a tool we can plug in to your cigarette lighter called fuel doctor. It can help so save around twenty percent of your fuel.ho  knows maybe it will really works.

Xbox

You know it's one of those occasions when it's tough to pick out what gift you'll get for everyone specially now that Christmas  season is right around the corner. Usually our list is already made up so we are ready  for shopping. But this time we kind of ran out of ideas specially for my twelve year old step daughter.  When I saw her  intently playing on Xbox at a neighbors  the other day, I told my husband that an xbox would be something to keep in mind. Now all I have to do is go online to check and  compare the prices.

Overshoes

My husband bought me a brand new set of shoes but I didn't want them to get dirty  going to work with the mud and slushy snow outdoors. So I bought a pair of overshoes to protect my shoes from getting dirty. Besides from keeping my new shoes clean they also helped to keep my feet warm. Needless to say nobody sees my pretty shoes until I get to work.

Waiting on eBay's bid

One of our agenda for today is to take pictures of stuff we want to put on eBay. We were able to get five of our items on. Downloading the pictures seems to take the longest. EBay's site must be overloaded. As soon as we put them on we had multiple visitors that put our items in their watch list and we hope that they're future bidders.

HDTV

A few months ago my husband talked about getting new glasses. Getting older seems to take toll on your eye sight. It made me wonder because his glasses were less than two years old. We were sitting together watching TV and I happen to mention that the TV was blurry to him he replied I guess you need glasses also. He then started looking away from the TV and everything was clear he then discovered that it is actually our TV going bad not his eye sight as much. So this weekend we're going out and hopefully will purchase a brand new HDTV. I can't wait we put this off too long it's gonna be our Christmas present together for each other.

Tin toys

Some of the treasures that we found in yard sales and auctions are tin toys. Some of them so rare that in the entire Internet you might find one for sale. One of ours from china has no research found at all on the Internet. So we're holding on to it eventually we'll get our appraisals back from three different companies that we sent pictures of our tin toys  to.

Leucine

After having our son come to this world I decided to be a stay home working at home mom. At least 'till he starts school. Making money online can be hard work. Sitting at the PC seems to make you want to snack all the time. So each day now I take forty five minutes for a workout program to keep me in tone. Along with the help of leucine I've lost five pounds this month. Looking good I may add.

Florida vehicle

My husband's so sick of New York State rust on vehicles. We have a 1998 truck. You can't see no rust on it but underneath the frame has rusted through so without alot of work it's no good anymore only for parts. This winter we're flying to Florida to visit his mom and we're buying a rust free older vehicle to drive home. How exciting.

Are diet pills safe?

Who knows these days . Every pill has a trade off. Taking care of your problems versus the side effects you might gain from taking them. A girlfriend of mine had severe weight to lose. She said she was taking seven different pills a day. It kind of made me wonder, are diet pills safe? I talked to her on the phone she seemed to be distant. I had to repeat a lot of things. I asked her if she had just woken up. I visited her two days later and asked her how much water she had drank lately. She said, oh very little. The pills had dehydrated her so I helped her make a schedule on how much liquid a day she would need.

Refreshing the house

Coming home everyday from work I'd open the door up. Our house wouldn't smell bad it just had that lived in type smell. Not bad not good just hard to explain. I needed to freshen the place up. I just didn't want to cover things up so I bought a deionizer to first get rid of the regular smell.  Then I decided to go the natural way with cinnamon and cherry. The combinations at different points in the house maybe a little overwhelming but it works for us.

Cheap auto insurance companies

I can't believe it. In this economy where everything is going down hill these jokers in our county raised our school and land tax twenty five percent then of course they voted themselves a nice healthy raise after they steal all of our money with raising the taxes. We do everything to try to save money. The next step is to try to find a cheap auto insurance companies. Pretty soon there won't be anything else to cut back in our house to save money.

Another accident

I was so happy with my new phone. Being it's unlocked H802 red in color I had it for about ten days and everything was fine. One of the mornings I plugged it into the charger I set it on the chair next to the table. My son Jarred came running into the room the cord was hanging low he tripped across it. It swung the cellphone around and smashed into the wall. It seemed to work but later there was a small crack on the front panel. It continued across and stopped the phone from working. Now we had to send it back. It's going to cost forty dollars for repair. Ten dollars for shipping. I guess next time I'll be more careful.

Managed hosting

Starting a business online, there is just so many things to think about. Building a site the way we wanted it took forever. Some of the things didn't work so we ended up removing that part of the page and adding something in its spot. Not anticipating the online storage that we needed was a worse mistake. When too many people were using the site everything started to freeze up. If we would have  went with managed hosting to begin with we probably wouldn't have this problem. You can't blame us for trying everything on our own.

Debt relief

These debt relief companies that promise you the world all we can say is before dealing with any of these people you should contact the better business bureau to see who has the best ratings out there. There are so many of these companies that just take your money and run with it. So many people that enter these programs end up in much worse shape that what they started. They say they are negotiating for you in the meantime they're not doing their job as they should be.

Business opportunities

It's so horrible to work for somebody that just treats you like you're a number instead of a good person that you are. I'm looking into more and more ways to make money at home online but you have to be more careful about what money you invest. A little here and a little there add up to a lot of investment over a years time. To find the good business opportunities that fits your lifestyle usually takes a long time but just like everybody else time is always against you when you need money now.

Shoddy work

Nothing bothers my husband more than having to fix work that other guys have done and screwed it up. He has other contractors called him after they had already hired someone to do the work and the work is shoddy. My husband ends up tearing things apart and fixing them the right way like it should have been done this way to begin with. You would think the contractor would learn to call my husband to begin with now the contractor has paid twice to get the job done right.
