Planning my Trip to Studio City

This week I will be heading over to Studio City to do some work on behalf of my employer.  They have many of us portfolio managers traveling over the country to make up for the recent labor shortage in our workforce.  I am hoping that it is a stopgap measure, but I won’t know for sure until they have some new staff in our office.

In the meantime all of us in the office have had to step-up our game.

This week I will be heading to Studio City on business.  I have been tasked with purchasing Milgard Ultra Woodclad Windows In Studio City for one of our corporate properties there.  The facility there has needed new windows for some time now, but no one cared to spend the money on this type of building maintenance.

I thought it was a big mistake.

I brought the topic to the attention of management at one of our boardroom meetings, and now I have been tasked with getting the job done.

Traveling to Studio City will be a great way to get out of the office for awhile and I am really looking forward to getting some work done while on the road.

I can’t wait until it is time to go.

Planning Next Weekend

It is hard to believe this weekend is already just about over.  Seems like it has been too few hours away from work, but in less than twenty four hours from now I will be back behind the office doing my job.  Instead of being depressed over how short the weekends truly are, I have decided to look forward to the future and start planning next weekend.

It should be fun.

While it would be great to just have a weekend off from the world and do something fun, I have a lot of work to get done in the next couple of months.  I just would rather check things off of my checklist during these warmer months as some of them need to be completed during the summer.

Looking towards the next weekend, I am planning to checkout Tuscany Milgard Windows In La Caniada for a good buddy that is doing some home renovations, get some baking done and maybe even stop-in and visit my parents.  I haven’t seen them in a couple of months, so I should make some time for them – I know that they won’t be around forever, so I need to make sure that I make time for them.

So far next weekend is shaping up to be a lot of fun.  Only seven more days before I will know for sure.

Reading the Saturday Paper

What a lovely day.  I have been out of my house all day shopping and drinking coffee.  While it feels like I have accomplished some things, it also seems like today has gone by too quickly.  In an attempt to slow things down, I decided that I would sit down and have a coffee while reading today’s paper.

Sitting down and sipping on my favorite coffee in Starbucks, I opened up my paper and started reading the headlines.  I was looking for some kind of cheery story to break up all of the negative news coming our lately.  This past week has been pretty bad here in our country, and I decided that I wanted a break.

They had some comic strips in this paper, right?

After reading a number of comics, I felt a little bit better.  It is amazing how some laughter can really make a big difference in your life, and I noticed how much the laughing really helped me feel better and happy.

Moving on from the comics, I discovered some good deals in the classifieds section for some Milgard Windows In Toluca Lake that would be perfect for one of my friends.  I ripped out the ad and I’ll give it to him the next time we see each other.

Reading the paper really put a smile on my face.

Window Shopping on a Saturday

While most of my weekends are busy, this weekend seems to be playing a different tune.  You see, it has been a slow and lazy day, so I have been getting some rest and relaxation by going window shopping.  I know that most of you think that I am talking about looking at stores and browsing through their items, but I think you need to take me a little more literally.

I was actually going window shopping.

Specifically I was looking for windows in Glendale that would work for my latest project.  I bought a little fixer-upper house that needs some serious TLC, and I thought that I would take a look at some windows to get some inspiration as to what I could do with my latest purchase.  I knew that if I could find the right type of window to be the focal point of my living room, it could really make the house a special place.

All I needed was the right inspiration.

While I haven’t found the perfect type of windows yet, the day is still young.  I think that I will be able to find something that will work for me and my pet project.

It has been the perfect way to spend a Saturday.

Just Finished Installing New Windows

It is hard to believe that my parents have not done any renovations to their home in the last twenty years, but us kids decided to change that one fact.  You see, we decided that we would replace the windows in their home as their anniversary present as they couldn’t afford to do it on their retirement income.  It was a way for us kids to get them something that they would use, and I think that they really appreciated our thoughtfulness.

They just had the windows installed today.

In fact, we contracted a company that specialized in Milgard triple glass windows to ensure that everything was done properly.  We didn’t have a clue as to what needed to be done, so we decided to leave it to the professionals.

It was the smart thing to do.

When I watched them install the windows, you could tell that they had done many sets of them in the past – they were quick and methodical with their installation process.  In some ways they made it look like an art and I really appreciated the skill that was involved to do their job.

Now that the windows are done we have another year to come up with something we can do for them for their next anniversary.
