I decided to get into better shape. I was not overweight, but I was not really in good shape either. I joined a gym, and I enjoyed working out the first couple of days. I took it easy, but by the third day I felt I was ready for a challenge. That was a mistake because I ended up getting hurt! I fell off of a machine, which was embarrassing enough. It did not help that I had to go and see a Sacramento chiropractor because my back was hurting so bad and I could not hardly sit up straight let alone walk without being hunched over.
I was going to give it a few days but decided that was just silly. With how much I was hurting, I did not want to risk that I had done something more serious than just a minor twist. I went to the same chiropractor that I had seen when I was in a car accident a few years ago, figuring the staff there would be able to tell me if they could help me or if I would need to take my embarrassment one step further by seeing a specialist.

I eventually found myself at a chiropractor in Santa Barbara about a year after I had surgery on my knees. They actually put in knee replacements as I’d worn out the cartilage over the years. I think the problem started when I played competitive tennis as a youngster. All that pounding on the court for several years led me down this path. There’s no going back, obviously, but replacing bad knees is generally a safe procedure. They warned that there could be some post-operative pain (of course), but I thought I’d bounce right back after a few weeks of bed rest.
When the pain didn’t go away, I still didn’t think much of it. The doctors said my knees looked good and to not worry about the pain as it should still go away. The problem is that the pain did not go away. Continue reading “Perfect Solution for Post-operative Pain”
I was really excited about looking at apartments in Dupont Circle Washington DC because I had heard so many good things about the complex from three friends who also have apartments there. I had never been to any of their apartments before moving here myself, but I figured if all three of them were saying the same things, then there was something about this apartment complex that had to be pretty special. I was only going to look at a one bedroom apartment, but I changed my mind once I saw the prices. I knew that I would be able to afford a two bedroom unit, and I knew that my parents and younger sister would appreciate that should they come see me for a few days.

I have a friend that was offered a job promotion that would require her to relocate to Charlotte, NC. She contemplated on this for a while and decided to accept the offer from her employer. She has asked me to help her find an apartment because I am familiar with the area. I figured the best way to start was to do an internet search for Charlotte NC luxury apartments. She is a little spoiled so I assumed luxury was a must for her. I was happily surprised at the list that popped up.
One apartment community in particular really caught my eye and it was only two miles from where I currently live. How convenient to have my best friend living within walking distance of my house. I was excited. I viewed the gallery of pictures on their website and really liked what I saw. I had no idea that apartments could be so nice and luxurious.

When I moved to Florida for work, I needed to find apartments in Miami Beach even before I left. My new employer expected that I would need to find living accommodations and provided several possible ideas. I looked through them, but all of them left me feeling cold. None of them seemed all that affordable, and the company wasn’t going to subsidize my rent, which meant that I needed to find something on my own. I figured it wouldn’t be a problem considering the size of the area. I just needed to make sure it was safe and affordable.
Of course, I also wanted something close to work. Moving to a new city means having to spend a few months getting to know the area and finding out how to get around. Continue reading “Very Amenable and a Great Location”
