Getting My Sister’s Trees Trimmed Down

When I saw how nice my sister’s trees looked, I got pretty excited. I had not been to her house in nearly a year, but I could still remember how tall a few of the trees close to her house were. I told her she should contact a tree service in Long Island NY to get them cut back some, but she had told me that she was not going to pay someone money to make the trees just a little bit shorter. She is on a limited income, so I could understand the hesitation to do something like this.

I had talked with some of our other family members and explained the situation to them. Continue reading Getting My Sister’s Trees Trimmed Down

My Cousin Was Self Conscious with Her Looks

I knew that my cousin was self conscious about her small breasts, but I honestly had no idea that it was as bad as it was with her. She broke down one night when she spent the evening with me, and years of frustration just poured out from her. I talked with her about different options, but she was adamant about not wanting to do anything unnatural, like surgery. I asked her if she had ever considered a breast enlargement cream, but she told me that those really did not work. I knew that they did because a good friend of mine is living proof of it, but I did not try to change her mind while we were talking.

I knew that she carried the same stubborn gene that I have, so I decided to just surprise her one day with a three month supply of Naturaful. I figured it was the least I could do because I had definitely been blessed in that department, as had most of the other women in our family.

Just Started My Summer Job

I am not exactly a valued member of the team right now, but I found a pretty good paying summer job working for a Houston foundation repair company. Obviously it is not like I have any clue what I am doing, but they are paying me to do the hard work. There is an old guy who is some sort of engineer, which is a good thing. You have to understand what you are doing when you mess around with the foundation of a house. The big thing is to know about building materials, but also about the geology involved in a foundation. Most of the time when you have to do this sort of work, it is because some other guy made a mistake. The big thing involves not understanding drainage. If you give water enough time, then it can do just about anything. All you have to do is to take a look at the Grand Canyon to understand that.

If you build a house and mess things up so that the water does not drain away, then you can end up with something called subsiding. It is pretty simple in effect. The soil gives way from under the foundation and then the foundation has nothing to hold it in place, so it settles down. It is really a lot more complicated to actually understand what to do, but the first thing is to lift it up back to where it should be. After that you have to replace the ground that is supposed to be there. The important thing is to make certain that you solve the underlying problem and make sure that it does not immediately happen all over again the next time that you turn around. I am trying to learn as much as I am able.
