Cleaning the House by Having a Garage Sale

It seems like there is never enough room in our house.  I feel that it is cluttered, mainly because of all the stuff stacked throughout the house.  It is a challenge that has been bothering me, and I am finally going to do something about it.

What I have decided to do is sell my fitness equipment and all the other junk at a garage sale that I will have on the weekend.  This way, I can clean out my house, and maybe recover some of the money that I spent on everything.

I will donate whatever is left after the weekend to charity, so that I can finally feel like I have a clean house for a change.

Monitoring Your Workforce

We have a little moving company that is extremely busy.  It is very important for us to make sure our staff are on the job sites on time, and that as soon as they are done, they should be moving onto the next job.

But after we had problems with some of our employees disappearing when they were supposed to be moving, we decided that we had to monitor the workforce.

We purchased a GPS fleet tracking service, and we no longer have that problem.  We can tell at a glance where our moving trucks are and if they are doing there job.  It has helped our bottom line as well as catch someone who stole one of our trucks.  It has been a good investment.

Easier Bath Access

Ever since my father had his accident, he has had difficulty getting into the bathtub.  Since taking a shower is no longer an option for him, he has had to look for other options when it comes to bathing.

So, we went to a store that specialized in walk in tubs to see if we could get one installed in their home.  There was many different models, but we were able to find one that will work perfectly for them.

They will be over on Wednesday to install it.  I bet my father will appreciate his new freedom to bath himself.

Last Attempt at Happiness

My wife and I have had a rocky relationship lately.  I wouldn't say that our marriage has been characterized by unhappy relationships, but we have had our share of bumps along the way.

But ever since we had our last child, my wife has been suffering from postpartum depression and it has affected our happy relationship to the point where there are a lot of problems.  It has got to the point where we are really considering going to get some professional help.

While at the bookstore the other day, I picked up some books on relationships and hopefully we will be able to find some inspiration in them.  First, I will have to get my wife to read the books, but I think that she wants this marriage to work out as much as I want to.

I just hope that it works, as I don't want our marriage to end in divorce - we just used to be good together.

Starting a Weight Loss Program

My wife has been overweight all of her life and she knows that it is going to be a problem.  What concerns her the most is that we have three children, and she wants to be around for many years to come.  But at her current rate of weight gain, it is looking like less and less of a possibility.

So, she has decided to do something about her weight problem.  She has joined a weight loss program, and so far, she has lost twenty pounds over the past six weeks.  Not only does she feel better about herself, but she knows that she is taking the right steps to ensure that she will be around for our kids for many years to come.
