Cute Lamp For $5

 
I just love this lamp that I bought at Lowe's 2 weeks ago. It was on clearance for only $5, so I grabbed 2 of them! One for my kid's room and one for my side of  the bed. I just love the overall design. This lamp reminds me of Tulips in Spring time the way the shades are shaped. And another thing that I love about it is you can aim it individually wherever you want it aim for its gooseneck stand!

Finding the Right Dining Table

The dining table is an important piece of furniture for every home. It is where the family gathers each night for dinner and bonds through being all together. It is where you sit while visiting with friends and family and serve them food. Finding the right dining table is important, so use the following tips when you go to furniture stores in Lakeland, FL, to get your new dining table.

Tips for Finding the Right Table

The first thing you will need to do is measure the area where it will go. Consider space for chairs and for people to scoot out from behind the table. You can then find the maximum size that you are willing to get for a table. Write this size down and bring it with you to the store. You should also consider the size of your family and how often you have guests. This will help determine how large the table should be to accommodate the number of people there. If you have guests occasionally, but not very often, you may want to consider getting a table with a leaf. This way, you can have more space most of the time, and when guests come, you can pull out the leaf and make a much longer table to accommodate your guests. You should also consider how much you want to care about the quality of the table and how it looks. Young children can make it difficult to keep furniture in good condition, and if you do not care much, you may want to get a cheaper table. It is more important for some to get a nicer table.

Ask For Help

Once you have all of these things figured out and find a furniture store that you want to look it, speak to the person working there. Tell them what your needs are as well as what you want out of the table. These professionals know their inventory very well and can easily help point you in the right direction. If you do not ask for help, you may end up wandering around furniture stores in Lakeland, FL, not quite sure where to go.

I Love Our New Refrigerator!

It has been over a week since we had our new refrigerator and I am just loving it. What I love most about it is how spacious it is inside! With our old refrigerator before, it was always a problem finding a space inside every time I grocery shop or sometimes when we have a lot of leftovers but now, I don't think about it anymore!

Our new refrigerator is a lot bigger than what we had before which was only 18 cubic-feet, this one is about 20 cubic-feet. The freezer is also lighted which is a feature that I have never seen on a regular refrigerator, another thing that I love about this new fridge! I guess this was the worth the money and we really needed a new one anyway! :)

When You Need Carpet Cleaning


Having a clean carpet can play a huge part in making your whole home look clean; clean carpets can even make your home look newer! On the other hand, if your home has dirty carpets, your carpets may make your home as a whole appear less than clean. Dirty carpets can even have a negative effect on the health of the inhabitants of a home because the dust and bacteria that lives in dirty carpets can hurt a person’s health when they are constantly exposed to it. In addition to the perception and health benefits of having a clean carpet, if you clean your carpets properly and regularly, you can also increase the life of your carpet because properly cleaned carpet does not have to be replaced as early and often as carpet that is not cleaned. In Venice, carpet cleaning is an easy practice to follow that will provide you and your home with many valuable benefits.

Regularly Cleaning Your Carpet

One important practice in keeping your carpets cleaned is regularly vacuuming your carpets. By vacuuming regularly, you can pick up any dust, crumbs, dirt, etc. that has been deposited on your carpet before it grinds down deep into your carpet (so deep that your vacuum can’t pick it up anymore). However, even if you do vacuum your carpets regularly, this practice is not enough to get your carpets completely clean. This is why, in addition to vacuuming your own carpets, you need to have your carpets cleaned professionally in order to clean your carpet deep down where the vacuum cannot reach. Professionals typically suggest having your carpets cleaned once a year; however, there are some factors that may require you to professionally clean your carpets more frequently.

When Extra Cleaning Is Needed

In Venice, carpet cleaning may be required more frequently if your carpets are exposed to some of these factorsFirst, if you have any new spills or stains in your carpet, it would be wise to have your carpet cleaned in order to properly remove the damage to your carpets. Second, if you are a pet owner or if you have young children, these factors can make your carpets dirtier than typical carpets, thus requiring more frequent cleaning. Finally, if you or anyone in your home smokes in the house, you may need to clean your carpets twice a year in order to keep them looking new and clean.

Well-Built Recycled Divider Plates

 When I found these plates at Walmart a week ago, I knew these were the perfect plates for my 22-month old son who loves to throw stuff across the room. These plates as you can see are made from recycled milk jugs. I am pretty sure these can withstand being thrown across the room without breaking or chipping or cracking. I can tell that it is very well-built, the plastic is really thick that it will be hard for anybody to break! And what I love more about this set is, it is MADE IN USA! You just do not see that print often especially at Walmart!

The Essentials of Cellulose Insulation

When you are building or remodeling your home, one of the most important things that you are going to want to consider is insulation. While you may never actually see this material in action, it is something that is extremely important since it helps to keep outside temperatures out of your home, while maintaining the temperature that is in your home. This can help to save you a great deal of money on your energy bills, making it so that your investment in good insulation will often pay itself off after several years. When you are looking at different types of insulation, you will probably consider using fiberglass, though, there are other materials that you can use that will often provide even greater benefits. One of these insulation materials in cellulose. Here is a quick look at some of the basics of local San Jose cellulose insulation.

What Is It?

While most people are familiar with fiberglass, many do not even know the basics of cellulose insulation. This type of insulation is usually made from recycled newspaper that has been shredded. While this may seem like a large fire hazard, the newspaper is treated with special chemicals that make it resistant to fire and insects. Cellulose insulation can come in several different forms. If you are installing this type of insulation on your own, you will more than likely purchase it in large bricks, which will need to be shredded and spread in the desired area. If a professional is installing the cellulose, the material will already be shredded and it may even resemble foam, since it will be sprayed into the desired area.

Benefits and Drawbacks

There are several different benefits and drawbacks of local San Jose cellulose insulation. The main benefit of cellulose insulation is that it can provide a great deal of temperature and noise insulation for you and your home. Another benefit of this type of insulation is that it can be easily put into any area. Some of the drawbacks are that this type of insulation tends to settle over time and moisture can destroy its ability to insulate your home.

We Need A New Tablecloth Bad!

Looking at the tablecloth pictured above, you would think that it has been used for how many years when in fact, I only had it for several months. It looks pitiful and needs replacing bad! I guess when you have rough kids around the house, cheap vinyl tablecloth like this doesn't last that long. I've used cloth tablecloth before which I didn't really like much. 

I mean it is nice that you can reuse it over and over but I do not like the fact that I couldn't just wipe off the stain just like what you can do on vinyl tablecloth. I didn't like the fact that I have to get if off and wash it as as soon as it is stained because I do not like seeing a nasty tablecloth while we are eating at the table!

So what I am planning to do this time is still buy another vinyl tablecloth but put a clear plastic on top so it will at least last for a while! I really like this tablecloth and hopefully there is still one available just like this at Walmart!

The Success of Family Law Attorneys

The world is a cruel place at times. For those people that live through a divorce, it can be a very cold and dark place. However, divorce can be conquered and life can move on. In fact, it can move on rather quickly and it can be a bright place in life for those that use family law attorneys in Greensboro, NC. Attorneys are able to help those going through a divorce to understand the importance of leaving the negativity behind and dealing with the facts. Attorneys are also able to help those going through divorce understand the benefit of leaving all the bitterness and backbiting in the past so that they can move ahead. Having the ability to compromise and move ahead through a divorce is valuable to the health of someone going through divorce as well as any children involved in it.

The Wisdom in Compromising in a Divorce

The natural reaction of most people going through a divorce is to become possessive of everything. Once the reality of moving ahead sets in, there is a distinct understanding of the change in finances that is about to come and, consequently, the possessive nature. However, there is wisdom in being completely open to compromising on any physical items shared between the former couple. There is wisdom in getting things divided up quickly in order to move ahead. When a couple, with the help of attorneys, are able to quickly move through the possessive stage and into compromise mode, they are working together in order to move ahead in their lives. Ironically, most couples that are divorcing can work together well if they can get into a compromising mindset. This is where attorneys really help.

How Soon Should an Attorney Be Hired?

One thing that many couples going through divorce wonder is how soon they should get family law attorneys in Greensboro, NC, involved. The truth is divorce goes smoother when attorneys are involved sooner in the process than later. As soon as a couple has made up their minds and both are satisfied that the marriage will not be saved, it is best to hire attorneys. Both sides of the divorce will benefit from hiring their own attorney to help them through the process.

A Heart Broken Scene

This was the scene at the airport this morning after my stepdaughter left. My oldest son was truly heart broken that she had to leave to go back home in Florida. Seeing him cry like that was truly unbearable as a mother because you know that it was a genuine pain, a pain caused by sadness from her big sister leaving! And of course the little one felt bad for his big brother  as well that he was trying to console him and gave him a hug as you can see in the picture above.

Even when I was very saddened of the scene, I couldn't help but take pictures of them while this was going on for I thought it was so sweet for the little one to console his big brother! As a mother, this is what you want to see your kids do, support each other in times of sorrow! Hopefully, they will bring this kind of relationship until they're old!

Chevy Equinox: Safety, Ratings, and More

If you’re in the market to buy a new crossover vehicle, you may want to consider getting a Chevy Equinox in Wheeling, IL. Here is more information about this car, including its safety features, ratings, and other desirable qualities.

Safety Features

This car is constructed with six airbags and many other features to keep you and your family safe. For example, it is built with a steel safety cage, keeping you much safer than a standard lightweight sports car. It comes with optional features like the lane departure warning, which lets you know through audio and video that you’ve drifted into another lane without signaling. You can also use the rear park assist feature, which uses video behind your car to help you park and back out safely. There are safety brake features, and you can use OnStar as well.

Consumer Ratings


This vehicle has been given a 7.4 out of 10 overall rating. It has been given a 6.8 in driving dynamics. Experts make note of the comfort and quietness of the ride, pointing out that power is sacrificed for the fuel economy, although you can buy a model with a V6 engine. They also note that coming around corners is a slight issue with this vehicle. It has a rating of eight in comfort and convenience. This is attributed to the fact that this automobile pushes the limit of the word “compact,” as it offers lots of room for the passengers in the second row. The Equinox received a 7.8 in the design department, as it is boxy and lacks extra space behind the back seat. However, the rear bench seat can move forward and back to offer more leg room, and it has an attractive dashboard area. The car was given a 7.2 in value.

Other Features
There are other things that may be more important to you as a consumer, assuming you already like the appearance and space of the car. It seats five passengers. This car gets an impressive 32 miles per gallon on the highway. It comes with a rear entertainment system if you choose to add the feature. It can tow up to 3,500 pounds, and it is equipped with all the modern technology people now expect in vehicles. If these features sound appealing to you, test drive one at a dealership providing the Chevy Equinox in Wheeling, IL.

Taking Her To The Hospital

My husband had to take my mother-in-law to the hospital today because she has been complaining about this pain on the side of her torso since 3 days ago. Evidently, my youngest son accidentally kicked her side when she was over here at the house for supper one night. I tell you, my youngest son sometimes gets really wild that sometimes he is uncontrollable! I do not remember my oldest son being this way when he was his age! I guess every kid is indeed different!

Anyhow, my husband just called a few minutes ago letting me know that they are in the waiting room right now. I just hope that it is nothing serious! I really feel bad for my mother-in-law. She just got so many things going on! I really hate to see her suffering! :(

The Benefits of Commerical Mowers for Your Business

Mowing the lawn not only creates curb appeal, but helps provide an even distribution of nutrients to the whole yard. As a lawn care professional, mowing will be required on a regular basis by all of your clients. Having the proper equipment will not only make the lawn look better, but can help each job be completed more efficiently. Commercial lawn mowers from companies such as ExMark can increase maneuverability, speed, and safety for both you and your employees.

Zero-Turn Riding Mowers

Zero-turn mowers have decreased the time it takes to mow a lawn, particularly for large, open areas. This is mainly due to the fact that zero-turn mowers have a zero-turn radius, hence the name. Unlike regular lawn tractors, a zero-turn mower turns 180 degrees around its own axis, reducing missed areas and the number of passes required to finish the job. Zero-turn mowers also tend to operate at higher speeds, and being a commercial mower, have a larger mowing deck. The mowing deck will often be located in the front of the mower, providing an increased maneuverability around objects and a better view to the driver of any obstacles that may be present. The front deck also allows a closer cut to obstacles, reducing the need for additional trimming later. Many zero-turn riding mowers allow for the addition of attachments such as fertilizer spreaders, dethatchers, mulchers, blowers, collection systems, and hitches for towing.

Stand-On Mowers

Another commercial mower that has been gaining popularity in the lawn care industry is stand-on mowers. Rather than walking behind or sitting upon the mower, the operator stands upon a platform on the rear of the mower. This allows for more versatility on changing terrain that would not be safely capable by other types of mowers, such as on slopes. The operator is also easily able to quickly get on and off the mower, increasing safety and reducing time. Just as with the zero-turn mowers, stand-on mowers have the deck located on the front for better viewing and increased maneuverability. Stand-on mowers are able to handle both large and smaller projects, as they tend to be more compact in size than zero-turn riding mowers. The compact size also allows for more room when loading equipment between jobs. In the end, commercial mowers such as those from ExMark or similar mower companies can help increase the efficiency of your lawn care business for jobs of all sizes.

Rashes Are Getting Better!

Thank GOD, the rashes on my son's face that started over a week ago is finally clearing out and thankfully it wasn't anything serious. This morning, we went to his pediatrician for a follow-up check-up. His pediatrician was pretty happy to see that it is going away, but there are still some left and some red spots, so she advised us to take him to a dermatologist just to be sure. The dermatologist's office called just a few hours after his appointment and already have an appointment set up which will be next week!
