Remodeling Turns into a Total Disaster!

Sometimes a home improvement task starts off really well, then the next think you know you are searching the web for a 24 hr emergency plumber in NJ! That is exactly what happened to me when me and my husband thought it would be a great idea to do a home install of a new bathtub. What a time we had with that!

Back in the day, when we moved into our home we had a 1970’s bathtub. We never replaced it, mainly because we never used that bathroom for anything other than a guest bathroom and no one seemed to mind. It wasn’t until our teenage daughter wanted to move into the guest room that we considered redoing that bathroom. We thought it would be simple enough, every video we had watched on the topic made it seem so easy to replace the tub! The day we started, we realized quickly how over our heads we were with this.

Nothing went wrong until after we got the tub out from the room. We noticed the flooring was worn and had to be replaced. It was a good thing we saw that, so we replaced the flooring. My husband was admiring a job well done when he used one of the sturdy pipes as brace for himself when he got out of the floor. What a bad idea! The nozzle of the shower came off, not a big deal that could be easy to fix but we noticed that there was a small leak dripping onto the floor. We followed that back as far as we could and ended up finding the pipe had split. It was large enough that my husband wanted a pro to fix it. The emergency came from when we tried the sink to see if that make the leak worse and water just gushed out! We immediately called emergency plumbers to come and help. We were way over our heads at that point!

Thankfully, they came and patched things up and even helped up put in the new tub and made sure the pipes all lined up with the faucets on that. Another thing we overlooked and didn’t think about. They were so helpful and overall a blessing to us!

Tree Service is More Than Cutting Branches

Pruning, uprooting, taking care of pests, and others are all things that people with trees in their yard will deal with in their life time. Many will take the task up themselves. In those cases, many will learn that the task is far too complicated for them. It can also be dangerous if you have no idea what you are doing. This is why I think it is always best to look into a tree service near me. I can only do so much tree work on my own, but knowing a professional is there makes me confident in the task being done right.

Small bush pruning and trimming is a job that I know I can do. That’s small branches and not a big deal, however, the larger trees needing trimmed are not something I would be willing to do. I have always had a good experience with having someone cut the trees for me. It has always been done professionally and the branches get taken away as well. I don’t feel comfortable being that high up handling a chainsaw or anything sharp. I can say the same for tree removal, that seems to be a task that is best left for professionals to do.

A job that most people don’t realize that tree services offer is to take care of bugs and pests that might be killing your tree. I’ve had instances where the tree looked like it was dying. The tree service that I use was able to come and diagnose the problem that the tree was having. They came and sprayed the tree down and was able to control the pests that were eating leaves and taking over the tree. It ended up getting better and thriving!

Most people think of tree services as cutting, which is what they mostly do. However, they do take care of plants in a lot of different ways. They are also the most knowledgeable people on plant life in general. They are always worth a visit to your home and can tell you what you should be doing with your trees.

Being Older Doesn’t Make You Invincible

My mother is 80 years old, and despite being that old, she likes to be independent. I’ve told her multiple times that she shouldn’t be living alone at her age because anything could happen, but she told me that she doesn’t want anyone waiting on her hand and foot. She has one of those buttons that you can press to alert the paramedics if something happens, but I don’t think that’s enough. I had to get an air conditioning installation in Brooklyn for her because her air conditioner went out recently, but she kept saying that she didn’t need it, and that she would be able to withstand the heat.

Although my mother likes to play the role of a strong person, she’s just as vulnerable as anyone else, maybe more at her age. She could easily pass out from heat stroke, or something worse could happen to her. If anything like that happened, I would only blame myself, because I could have done something to prevent it. She always insists that nothing will happen to her and that I’m just worrying too much, but she just doesn’t seem to realizes that she’s at the age where things are more likely to happen to her.

Once the new air conditioner was installed in my mother’s home, she loved that the cool air was in her home again. She thanked me for having the installation done, but she still insisted that she didn’t need it and that I should stop worrying about her. It’s kind of impossible for me to not worry about her, so I’ll just have to keep tabs on her. I’ll let her live alone, but I’ll call her every day to make sure that she’s doing fine, and stop by her home at least once a week for an in person visit.

I Guess That I Am Managing a Club Now

Of course I was surprised to hear from my old boss. The man is absolutely loaded, he got so much money that I doubt he knows where all of it is. When I worked for him I was barely out of college. At any rate he hardly knew me then and I guess that people we both know just recommended me for this thing. I am not sure it is exactly a job for him. It is more of a scheme to have sex with lots of hot young girls like the brunette escort that picked me up at the airport. I would have thought that she was a swimsuit model or a beauty queen to look at her and I had a very hard time looking at her without staring. Continue reading…

Watching out for Criminal Elements

While I was out at a restaurant with my wife for dinner, I got a ADT Bakersfield, telling me that my alarm system had been triggered and asked if I was fine. My wife and I rushed home and when we arrived, the police were outside. They told us that someone broke a window in an attempt to enter the home. Fortunately, they ran off without taking anything. It was a miracle that they didn’t, and that my wife and I weren’t home at the time. Even though I had a security system installed, I always thought that our neighborhood was fairly safe.

Some people in my neighborhood have floated around the idea of moving away, but I didn’t want that to happen. Instead, I brought up the idea of having a neighborhood watch. That coupled with our alarm systems would keep any shifty characters out of our neighborhood. I volunteered to take watch for a few hours each day after work, and so did some of the other neighbors.
