Digital Bathroom Scale

 photo 012_zps2b4b3f21.jpg

This is the coolest bathroom scale I have ever seen. Not only is it’s sleek, modern style, eye catching it is also the most precise and accurate scale I have ever tried. We haven’t been shopping for a bathroom scale recently so I don’t know if weighing down to 1/10th of a pound is a big deal or not but the repeatability and accuracy of the readings are really amazing.

Both my hubby and I stepped on and off multiple times, and always got the same number. Turning the scale on is very easy, no more switches or tapping are …

Utility Bills

I freaked out when I opened up our first bill from our new phone/internet/cable provider. The payment is automatically withdrawn from our back account. The reason we had a big bill was that we got billed for two months. At first, I thought we got overcharged or there were hidden charges but as soon as my hubby got up from his nap, the problem was solved. He showed me that the billing dates were for two months and that it was actually a little less than what had been estimated.…

Low Carb Diet

Spring has finally sprung here in northern Minnesota. I am really excited to get back outdoors, start my gardening and do some fishing. About a week ago, I finally got serious about losing weight. I put myself on a low carb diet and I do the Zumba exercise at least every other day. I did a 20 minute Zumba yesterday and it felt really good. I have learned over the years that the most effective way to get into shape is through healthy eating and exercise. Since I love dancing, I chose Zumba as my exercise routine.

Both my hubby …

My hubby and I like to travel a lot. We spent most of this last winter in my home country, the Philippines. We thought we were going to avoid all of the winter by getting back on March 19th, but here it is April 22nd and we still have a huge pile of snow in our front yard. As a matter of fact, it was snowing quite heavily just yesterday.

We are really looking forward to getting some warm weather to melt all the snow and ice off from the lakes so that we can get out in the boat …

New Phone System

Before we left home for our four month long vacation in the Philippines, our phone system was already acting up. Sure enough, when we got home, we did not have a reliable working phone. First of all, our provider did not activate our connection as instructed until we called them. Thanks to my sister in-law for lending us one of her cellphones. We did not get our phone connection back until two days after we got back from our vacation. When we finally got our connection back, for some reason, the telephone in our home office wouldn’t ring anymore. We …

Ahh yes, spring has sprung and April showers bring May flowers, that’s the way it is supposed to be now right? That was what we were expecting when we got back from the Philippines on March 19th. Here it is now a full month later and this is what our garden looks like.

During the month that we have been back, we have continued to endure sub freezing temperatures and multiple snows. We are beginning to feel like we …

New Provider

We finally have a new provider for our phone, internet and TV. My hubby has had been putting off to sign up a new provider but after we got back from our vacation in the Philippines, he decided that it is about time. While we were gone, we had to keep our old provider for phone, TV and internet on hold because they offered us a real good deal. When we got back and had to get everything up and running, we found out that they did not live up to their hype. That was the last draw and we …
