Scrubs for PJ's


Recently I was at a friends house and she was lounging around in a pair of scrubs. I guess I should mention that she is not a nurse or a doctor. When I asked her why she was wearing her green scrubs, she explained to me that she wears them as PJ's and to lounge around the house. She went on to explain that she had found that they were the more comfortable than a pair of sweat pants.

When I got to thinking about it. Sometimes sweat pants and shirts are very unflattering. The scrubs gave her the loose freedom sweats do, but they did not look frumpy. So I went online to purchase me a pair of women's scrubs for myself. If you happen to show up at my house and see me lounging around in a pair of scrubs, you will know that I have not decided to become Doctor Grandma.

Harlem Globe Trotters


I think I have revealed that I am no spring chicken. In fact, I am not ashamed to let my readers know that I am 46 years old. Why am I sharing this information with you? I ran across an article online recently that was talking about the Harlem Globetrotters. I was stunned that they are still around. I know that the same players that were playing when I was a kid are not on the team, but the fact that the team still exist was amazing to me. At the same time, it wasn't. I can remember as a child my grandmother talking me to see the Harlem Globetrotters. To me they were the most amazing athletes in the world. That was over 35 years ago and they are still going strong. Out of curiosity, I went to their web site to find out where they are playing and get more information on the teams schedule. After the first of the year you can catch a game in Auburn Hills, MI at the Palace of Auburn Hills or the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN. If it is too cold in Michigan and Indiana for you this time of year they will be playing in Phoenix, AZ at the US Airways Center and Arco Arena in Sacramento, CA. For those of you on the east coast what better place to watch the amazing Harlem Globetrotters, but at the Madison Square Garden. No matter where you view the game, I am sure you will enjoy the game. Take a loved one and make memories. Trust me when I say, my grandmother made memories with me that I will never forget.

Fire Damage


It's hard to believe it's been almost one year since my dad and his wife's apartment caught on fire. They were moved to another apartment and have moved on with their life. We were talking the other day and he was telling me about all the work the apartment complex put in to restoring their old apartment and the other apartments that received damage from the fire and the water. It's shame that the apartment complex spent so much money tearing out and replacing when there are companies out there that can actually clean up these damages without the extensive tear out and rebuild.

Companies like The Steam Team of Texas. With over 18 years of experience this company is available 24 hours a day. They can solve your fire & water damage in the Austin area. Dealing with water damage in the Austin area this company's high quality work and customer satisfaction are a priority. No job is too big or too small for this company, they even have organic carpet cleaning in Austin.

Knowing that there are companies out there like the Steam Team, is reassuring that if needed there is a less evasive way to handle water damage.
