Dealing with the Stress of Moving




We're moving back to Iowa tomorrow, it's not fun actually. Moving is so stressful. This is the fourth time we will be moving, and now I learned my lesson from the past. It is best to be organized as you get ready to move in your new home. The great way to be organized is to do several things before you move and do few things after you move. I checked out things, anything that should be taken to the junk yard. Things that are not usable or are not functioning well should be put on trash, its such a waste of spaces on the moving truck (we pay for the weight basis). We have this entertainment center cabinet thats really heavy and the treadmill. We tried to sell it but no one wants to buy. My husband wants to put it in the junk, but I refused, because both are still working and we can still use it. We have a lot of old clothes that we no longer use, some I packed and shipped it to my family, then some went to garbage can. If you have things that have low value and you do not need anymore but are in good condition, you give them away or sell them.

In moving, you need a moving company to move your things from your old house to your new home. Good thing we have a close friend who works in a moving company and she always gave us a good deal.

But the most most difficult aspects of moving is the number of changes and transitions it involves. Like finding a new job, dealing with new neighbors etc... another life's challenges.

Thanks, PPP


This must be quick, I really need to write this post to express my appreciation to PayPerPost. I just cashed my earned money from this blog yesterday and went shopping. As what I've wrote on my previous post when PPP accepted my blog, my earnings will be for Christmas presents for my family in the Philippines. And now is the perfect time to send a package for them, usually it takes 2 months before it will reach the receiving country. Here are some of the stuffs I bought I know they will like, a tennis shoes, digital camera, NBA tshirt, perfume,make-up, chocolates, coffee. I wanted to add a PSP (special request from my nephew)but my budget ran out, must write more PPP opportunities, to earn more, lol. I know I neglected my blog the past few weeks, I'm so stressed out with a lot of things like moving again, having a full time job, lifting of my conditions, etc., that I have no time to write a post and visit other blogs. My apology to my blogger friends who I've neglected to pay a visit but they continue to visit my blogs. I know I owe you, friends, I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Now, I discovered a new way again to fill up my pay pal earnings, I just join Cashcrate
and within 2 weeks of completing surveys, I already have an approved September earnings of $38.60 and pending earnings of $52.25. I'm just doing this thing on my extra time, like 1 hour a day after I'm done on my important things to do in the internet. So, guys, if you have 1 hour to spare in the internet, why not do this stuffs and earn dollars, (you will not pay anything)wherever you are in the world, even in the Philippines, they have some offers for you too. I'm just sharing what I'm enjoying right now, just an extra small cash to supplement your income. Not bad.

Harley Riders

Milwaukee is the headquarters of Harley Davidson. Thousand of riders rumbled into this town last week. The sound of the Harley-Davidson motorcyle filled the air the whole week here in our place, as soon as I wake up and it's awesome. It's amazing seeing a group of riders coming from all over the states or worldwide as they said, waving their flags on their bikes. Darn, I missed the fun watching the activities including the Saturday night performance of Bruce Springsteen and the E street Band because of my work schedule.
