Anniversary Dreams Turned into New Passion

Looking for a good piano teacher in Singapore isn’t always easy. However, knowing what you want really does help narrow down the options to someone who can help you really fast. For me, I was looking for someone to teach me the basics of piano playing and teach me how to play one song. I wasn’t looking to become the next Beethoven or anything like that. I just wanted to learn a song for my husband for our anniversary. The problem was no piano teacher just gave lessons to learn a song, or so I thought.

For our anniversary, I wanted to go the extra mile for my husband. He has always been there for me and I wanted to express how much I appreciated that. He had always loved a specific song and it had a wonderful piano medley in it and I wanted to learn that song to play for him for our anniversary. Sadly, no matter how many times I explained that to piano teachers, no one wanted to teach me just the basics and a song. Most wanted to charge for full lessons and teach me that way so I learn the song on my own.

A Simple Gift for Mom

My mother had a birthday last week, and I decided to get her customized socks as a present. As far as presents go, this was one of the most simple presents that I’ve gotten her, but it was also one of the most practical. I usually get her something high tech and expensive, like computers, phones, and tablets, but she has a hard time figuring out how to use any of that stuff. Even after reading the instructions and me helping her to use it, she still can’t really figure it out. I decided that it would be better to go with a more low tech solution.

The socks that I got for her had a special pattern on them that she really loved. She has shirts and things with this pattern on it, so I figured it would be cool for her to have socks with the pattern. Surprisingly, she didn’t have any socks with the pattern before I got her some. I figured she would have gotten some at some point, but she didn’t.

I Am Doing Really Well with My New Girlfriend

I have been really enjoying this girl that I met a couple of weeks ago. She is really different from any other girl that I have met. The big thing is money, because you usually expect that the girl is going to let you pick up every check that comes near the two of you. At any rate I took her out to the place that I used to work at when I was in college, the place that happens to have the best Italian in San Diego and they charge you like that. She insisted upon picking up the check and was really confused when she saw it. They only charged us for a bottle of wine, half of which I recorked and took home.

Hornets Were Trying to Take over the Neighborhood

We walk passed an old house every day. It has been up for sale for over a year now. The real estate company that is maintaining it for the owners who moved abroad does the bare minimum when it comes to lawn care and other needs. A big oak tree ended up being the perfect spot for a huge hornet’s nest. People were being attacked as they walked by at times. We decided to call pest control in Brooklyn to have it removed. I figured we would pay for it and bill the real estate company. Even if they did not pay, we would at least be safe on our walks.

In Brooklyn you might think of being mugged depending where you wander and when. You don’t think of being attacked by hornets in the area. However, wildlife takes up residence where it can.

Detailing My Car to Look Perfect

I wanted to sell my car, but I knew that I had to do some major cleaning on it first. I usually just run it through the car wash every month or so, but that really does not do a great job. I needed to find someone who could detail it before I took pictures of it. Because of my lack of care in the past to it, I needed a true expert when it comes to detailing. A friend of mine told me about a company that does mobile auto detailing in Detroit.

He had not personally used this detailing service yet, but several of his cousins and other family members had. They had nothing but good things to say about the company, so I decided to give them a try. I knew that a expertly cleaned car would net me a lot more in my negotiations with whoever would buy it.

The Screen on Her IPad Cracked

When my niece came to visit me for a few weeks, she made sure she brought her iPad. She does so many things with it. She likes a few games, but she uses it to learn all kinds of things too. she also likes to use a few apps that deal with photography, so I really did not mind that she used her free time to play on it. She was heartbroken when it fell onto the sidewalk because the screen cracked. I know of a company that does iPad repair in Richmond, and I promised her we would take it there to see if they could fix it.

She thought that she was going to have to have her parents buy her a new one, which really is not in their budget. I was happy that I knew of this place, because I did not want her to go even a day without it.

How Dogs Changed Us and How We Changed Them

Dogs are really a big deal nowadays. I remember as a kid seeing dogs tied outdoors with ramshackle dog houses. I always felt bad for dogs left to their own devices except for a few minutes of human interaction during feeding every day. It was wrong for people to do that. Now there are laws prohibiting that kind of treatment.

Nowadays we even have premium dog foods, such as Natures Domain Salmon, to feed our dogs. I remember when there was just plain old canned and dry dog food. Not long before that dogs ate the scraps their people would give them. The history of how dogs moved into our homes and fueled a multi-billion dollar pet product line is an interesting one. No other animal species is as close to us as dogs are.

I know that cat owners would disagree, but the natural temperament of the bulk of domesticated dogs puts them even closer to us than cats. We all know that cats can be extremely friendly and enjoy human companionship. However, cats are largely nocturnal, and they cannot herd animals and do things like rescue and police work. They cannot be trained to detect landmines or armed insurgents and other things dogs excel at learning.

Dogs are the only non-human species that has integrated with human beings on a large scale to work with us, be companions, be protectors and more. They are like family. We treat them like they are our children. We feed them premium foods, and they even share our beds.

Laws are changing to protect them with many areas not permitting keeping dogs outdoors. I know that sled dogs in Alaska are bred for cold climate survival, and they are kept in outdoor areas with doghouse kinds of shelters. However, your average neighborhood dog in the lower forty-eight states needs laws protecting them from owner abuse, and they deserve premium dog food and treats to keep them fed well and healthy.

She is Learning a Lot in Her Tutoring Sessions

The tuition centre at Bukit Timah proved to be extremely beneficial to my son. He was having trouble with one of his classes at school, and we decided that getting him some tutoring help was really the only option to help him. He could remove himself from the class, but that was just covering up the problem temporarily. He would just have to take it again next year with the same teacher, and he would have the same issues then. We are not the type to cover up issues, so we started looking at the options, which is how we found the tutor that helped him so much.

He really has a keen interest in physics, so we were surprised that he was struggling as much as he was. When we tried to find out where the problem was, it was as if we were speaking two different languages. Physics is not a strong suit of ours though, which is why we decided to take him to someone who does speak that language.

I Stay Happy and Have Financial Control in My Life by Working Each Day

As a young wife, I really thought I would enjoy having extra time at home each day before my husband gets home. What I learned was that I had too much idle time on my hands. After discussing it with my husband, I told him that I was going to accept a paid position as a part time helper in Singapore so that I can earn money and keep busy. He was a little unsure about that at first, but he told me he would not stop me. What he has learned since then is that it’s important for your wife to be happy and it makes sense to earn money instead of staying home and getting no pay at all.

We are both in our twenties, and we grew up with families who did things very differently from the other. My mom is very vocal and has always worked. She’s strong, and she knows how to get things done at home and at work without much trouble.

My Back Pain Was Excruciating

When I woke up about a week ago, I had the most awful pain. Figuring I had slept wrong, I still got out of bed but that was about all I could do that day. I had to call off work because I knew there was no way I would be able to get through a day with the level of pain I was in. I tried heating pads, pain pills, and even held a hand held massager against my back. I knew that I needed to look into chiropractors in Santa Maria when none of that helped.

I decided to give it one more day, in case I just needed time. I thought I would be able to sleep okay, but the pain even prevented me from that. I was able to catch 15 minutes here or 40 minutes there, but the pain kept waking me up. The next morning, I contacted a local chiropractor, hoping I could get in that day.
