I spent years being tired and feeling horrible every day. I found myself wishing that I were 20 years younger again because there was once a time where I felt good every day and had a lot of energy to get things done. I did not know what the trouble was until I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and given a CPAP machine to use. I was not a fan of the machine, so I stopped using it. That is when I learned that sleep visiting a sleep apnea dentist in Grand Rapids could help me.
When I originally got the machine, I was not impressed. I couldn’t imagine needing to sleep with a machine that would help me breathe better every night. Even before using it and simply looking at it, I had a feeling it would be loud and intrusive, and I was right. The noise kept my wife awake to the point that it just became easier for her to go sleep in our guest bedroom every night. That made me really sad and she felt the same way.

Roberta and I have just now started to clear off the land which her father and her uncles gave us for a wedding gift. The land originally belonged to her maternal grandfather and he divided his land between his six sons and daughters. This is just a small part of it, around two and a quarter acres. We already cleared off a part of it, just enough for access and to put in a little camper trailer. We went on the web to find out which Texas energy companies would hook up power to the trailer and then we started work on it. At first we could not really do much, because the conditions were not right for burning the brush. We managed to find some guys who wanted to cut down a few trees for firewood and that was a big help to us. Continue reading “Just Started Clearing Our Land”
You have probably seen Texas in the movies or on TV. Usually you see the big cities of Houston or Dallas. You see big buildings and cowboy hats and probably think everyone has a lot of money. Texas is so big in size and its economy that quite a few Texans still wanting to secede and be their own country. My family has smaller concerns such as picking the right Texas energy company to save some money on our monthly electric bill. I am happy that Texas is deregulated as far as utilities go. If our local electricity provider had a monopoly on us, we would be stuck paying whatever they said we had to pay. Competition allows us to pick a provider that offers electricity at a lower rate.
Electricity is measured in kilowatt hours. Continue reading “Hang Onto Your Money Rather Than Giving It Away to High Electricity Costs”
Wanting something better for myself financially, I decided to become a real estate agent. I thought it would give me the extra step up in the ladder of life to not have to worry about money so often, and I was right. As soon as I passed my test to become an agent, I rushed out to find a printer in Brisbane so that I could have my very first business cards made. It was the first step toward my financial freedom.
As someone who has no college degree, I found myself having so many difficulties with money. Every time that I would get over one financial hurdle, I found myself running into yet another one. Every time that I saved a little extra money, yet another emergency would crop up and force me to eat up my savings. I felt like I was on a never-ending treadmill.
