Crowdsourced Gift Ideas

Breaking a long silence because I just had to find a place on the internet to gush about this site.  It's called Gifted Idea and their team of gift experts are on hand to crowdsource you some amazing gift ideas.  Or you can browse their previous selections...they have gifts by occasion (e.g. christmas gift ideas), they have gifts by recipient (e.g. gift ideas for mom), and by type of gift (e.g. unique gift ideas).

When you're crowdsourcing your ideas, you can add all this information above, plus also likes and hobbies, and your budget, and any other important details you want to add.  This is such a life saver when it comes to shopping for my nieces and nephew who are very tough to buy for.  Check out Gifted Idea today for all your gift ideas!

Back to Work

Well the fireworks display the other night was great. We had the best seats and the show was great. The philharmonic played for two hours then ended with the Stars and Stripes song along with the start of the fireworks display. It was really nice. Enough of that and back to work. It is going well today and not too hectic. it is really hot out today so I am planning on picking up a pizza and heading over to my sister's after work for a swim. As long as the weather agrees.

July 4th

Happy 4th of July. I am planning on seeing the fireworks this evening along with a cookout at my sister's place. The fireworks display around here is an annual event with music playing and all. It gets really crowded, so we must arrive early for decent seats. The whole gang is going and the weather is forcasted to be dry. I will let you know how they were. Happy 4th of July USA.

Well here I am at the beach. It rained briefly yesterday, but otherwise it has been perfect. i could not have asked for a better week to go to the beach. I was on the boardwalk yesterday and bought a few souvenirs for the family. My parents always request fudge from this one store so I was sure to get it. Myself, I love the taffy. Tonight I am planning to go out to dinner at this seafood place.

Vacation soon

Well next week is my vacation. The plan is to go to the shore. I love the beach as it is so relaxing. I friend of my father's owns a condo down there and I can get it at a reduced rate. I am planning to go for a week and have already requested the days off from work. Boy do I need a vacation as the days at work have been long and really hectic. I was checking the future forecast at the beach and it looks perfect. I hope it remains that way.

Estimated taxes

Remember today is June 15th . For those of you that pay estimated taxes they are due. My sister was reminding me as though I do not pay, my mom does and she needs some help getting it out. Her eyes and memory are not what they use to be. Though she does not send in much each quarter, it is important to pay it on time. So do not forget.

The rugs are in and I love them. They make the place look great. It is amazing how it changes the look so much. The problem now is that some of the furniture looks old and worn. I hope to save up some money and plan to go shopping for a new couch and coffee table over the next month or two. I think if I work some overtime that would help too. Anyway for now the rugs are great!
