One of the nurses had custom made scrubs, with pockets for all sorts of things. She had Kleenexes, medical equipment, medicine and other various objects in her pockets. It was very impressive. She informed me that the nursing scrub uniforms were important, as they do not have time to run around and find things when working with an adult that needs constant care. It made sense to me and as I mentioned before I have a new respect for the work they do. My grandma is in good hands with these ladies.
When your basement floods the first thing you have to remove the water damage floor austin. The shop wet/dry vacuum is our first line of defense. Removing all the excess water and sweeping the remains down the drain will take time. If you have carpet in the basement, you will then need to deep carpet cleaning austin the carpets. Removing any debris and dirt left over from the flooding. Preventing mold from developing is the final step. We treat the walls and floor with a combination of vinegar, tea tree oil and water. Equal parts of these three items in a spray bottle will help fight any mold from developing. Both vinegar and tea tree are an anti fungal and will destroy mold. Treat the area daily for several weeks and then watch to make sure no mold develops. I hope that your basement does not flood, but if it does take these important steps to help clean up and prevent permanent damage.

The trash company will leave you the junk bins and you pay a monthly fee. Once you have filled the junk bin they return to pick it up. It’s very convenient for the busy homeowner that is trying to complete a clean up task. Hopefully, the junk bin will arrive soon and he can get to the clean up while he still has time on his hands.

We are expecting several families to visit in the month of April. One of the difficulties with so many people visiting at the same time is finding a place for them to sleep. I’ve decided to purchase a twin over full bunk bed for our fourth bedroom. One of the nice things about the twin over full bunk bed, you can fit a married couple on the bottom with a child on the top. With our other twin bed in the room we can accommodate an entire family on one bedroom. This will leave our other guest room available for the other couple that will be coming. Now all we need is another bathroom to accommodate all the guests.
I have many pet peeves and one of them is when someone else uses my desk and changes the position of my office chair. By having another chair available for other users I can alleviate the frustrations of my own pet peeves.
Susan Dillinger, a traveling seminar presenter for a Colorado management training company, says if you like square furniture you are, “Organized and a hard worker, you like structure and rules and dislike situations in which you don’t know what’s expected of you. You prefer working alone to teamwork. Logical, you think sequentially – A, B, C and D. You collect loads of data and file it so information is easy to locate.” This does explain who I am. I’ll share with you in another post, what my husbands round furniture means.
We just found out my son and his wife is expecting a second child. The two children will be 17 months apart. The thought of buying them their first bunk beds for them to share a room and build memories brings joy to my heart.
While the thoughts of redecorating my master bathroom, I found that I want to do the same with my master bedroom. While looking for bathroom vanities I found some very beautiful bedroom vanities. When I was growing up in my early teen years I had a friend who had this antique bedroom vanity. It had a big oval mirror and the two sides of drawers for all her personal things. I can remember thinking; it was like stepping back in time. As I have grown older, I realize I still want that same type of vanity. I don’t think we ever grow tired of finding beautiful furniture.
I enjoy a relaxing shower or bubble bath and having the perfect bathroom will give me great joy. While my husband plays in his garage with all his man toys, I’ll be reading a good book in a nice hot bubble bath in my newly decorated bathroom.
Since I began blogging more and writing for the examiner.com I have spent a lot of time sitting in my office chair. Locating office chairs that are comfortable and affordable is very important. Not only is it essential for comfort but also for your health. Lower back pain can occur when sitting for long periods of time. So a chair with good lumbar support is a necessity.
I myself prefer an executive chair with plenty of cushion on the seat and lumbar support in the back. The tilting back, height lever and slightly sloping edge to the seat gives me the most comfort. What kind of office chair is most comfortable to you?
