Fun And Pleasurable Experience

Remodeling your home can be a fun and pleasurable experience. However, you need to be certain that the work is performed correctly the first time. If not, you could be setting yourself up for very serious problems down the road. It is especially important to pay attention to the quality of remodeling work when it is going to be particularly complicated. So how do you know who to go to for this sort of a project. The first thing you will need to do is talk to a lot of general contractors. You will be able to get a sense of who is best suited for the tasks that you need to accomplish. Here are some tips to help you get your remodeling done right.

1. Thoroughly plan your project

A remodeling project is not something you can just dive into headfirst. You need to know exactly what you are going to do and how you are going to do it before a hammer has pounded a single nail. This type of thorough planning will help the project to go smoothly and make it less likely that delays will happen to slow things down.

2. Time of the year

The time of the year is something that you will need to take into serious consideration if your project is going to require work to be done outdoors. Needless to say, work becomes much more difficult if there is snow and very cold weather to contend with. Therefore, any remodeling project that requires more than an hour of outdoor work should be scheduled at an appropriate time of year where the cold and snowy weather will not be much of a factor. Failing to do this could have very harsh consequences. There could be huge delays. If this happens, it is very possible that you will not be able to use the part of the house that is being remodeled for the entire winter.

3. Get the necessary permits

You will not be able to start on a project if there is digging involved without permits. You will need to contact your local city government to see if you will be able to dig in the location of your project. This is so you do not accidentally break a water or gas pipe when you are digging. You will also need to have any plans for an addition to be approved to make sure they are within your city’s building code.

Postponed Birthday Celebration

It was my eldest birthday last January 27 but since my payroll is on Friday. I have postponed the celebration yesterday. Mj is a very understanding kid, when I said that I have to postpone the celebration, she told me right away that she will just inform her classmates that the simple party will be move on Friday.

But during her birthday last Wednesday since I still have little extra I was able to buy a half loaf style of Cake in the bakery nearby. When I arrived home, my sister then told me that she will buy burgers and sundae float in Jollibee just for Mj to feel that it is indeed her birthday that day. My sister also bought 1 whole garlic chicken in a carinderia nearby. When the delivery from Jollibee arrived, I finished my share right away so I can get enough sleep for work. Mj was just simply enjoying her share of burger that we forgot the garlic chicken. When I woke up at 12 midnight to get ready for work, the whole garlic chicken is still there waiting for someone who gets interested of picking them up. But no one did until the next day.

I was not able to bond my kid on her special day, but I made sure that we will get enough on Friday.

I Am A Fan

Nowadays, all I want to do is just to stay home, which is why sometimes if I have something to buy, I always checked the convenience store nearby. I don’t go to the mall unless if I have to grocery shop. Recently, Mj is asking of a new guitar, which has a distinct design she even told me that it is a good quality.  She said she knew one shopping center that has this kind of guitar and to my surprise we need to board in an airplane to get there. I told her to check the nearest guitar center maybe we can find the same guitar she likes. I am a fan when my eldest is playing with her guitar, I am always proud of her. In fact when she plays with her I always try my best to sing with her. Oh well, I think I did a good job being her singer. LOL.

Treat Them Right

Kids with special needs are not weird or odd. They want what everyone else’s wants –to be accepted!!!

Some may feel odd when they see special kids, please don’t. All they want is to be accepted. Do not make them feel that they don’t belong because they always are. Treat them with how you treat the normal kids because you don’t know what they would feel when you stare at them like they have disease. Special kids have feelings too maybe more vulnerable than you are, they are very sensitive although they look like that they don’t seem like they don’t understand.

They just want to be accepted and you should response because you don’t know the future that awaits you, you won’t know what your kids will be like when you already have your own. Treat them right.
