Renovation Revolution!

March 14th, 2015

When my mother passed away she left the home that I was raised in to me and my husband. We currently were living in a quaint little apartment just off main street in my hometown and I was pregnant so we were excited to have more space for our family to grow. I loved my mothers house but felt it needed some renovations as the memories were just too painful since she had so recently passed on. We didn’t want to change everything but the living room was a space I never did like because of the shag carpet and green walls. We ended up choosing a light blue color that emitted a relaxed spring time feeling from it. We installed some nice knotty wood oak Manchester shutters that really brought the whole room together. I was extremely happy with our choices and was sure mom was approving as well.

It is super hot in here!

It is becoming so hot these days! I had to turn on the air conditioning Manchester in order in the house in order to feel like I could function! It has not been this hot in this part of the country for many years! In fact, it felt like it was going to snow just a few weeks ago! If the heat is this bad during the Spring, then I do not even want to think aboutthis summer! Luckily, we put in a new system last year and I think it will make a a big difference in how feel during this summer’s heat. Last year I must have bought five fans to get the air moving. However, it seemed like nothing was working! I called so many people to get estimates for a new AC. I finally found a great quote and had it installed. I am so glad we have this new AC unit!

What’s Mine is Yours

He was wearing a pair of size eleven sneakers called Speedsters. They were high-tops, had a pump on the tongue, and had multicolored laces. I knew everything about these particular shoes, because they were mine.

I was volunteering at a food shelter when I saw the man wearing my shoes. He was tall and his clothes were covered in dirt. He noticed that I was staring at his feet. “You like my Speedsters, huh?” He said. I knew he had stolen them from me at the gym last week, and I knew he didn’t recognize me. “They’re great shoes, take good care of ‘em.” I said.

I handed him the clipboard to sign, allowing him to take a bag of food. I tore his copy from underneath the NCR pads and handed it to him. He nodded his head at me in appreciation, and I nodded back.
