My Family’s Moving In With My Grandma

My Grandma’s health hasn’t been doing to well lately and so she needs some help around the house. How sad it must be to reach the point that you can’t even take care of yourself. I hope God just takes me at that point. It’s nice to give people the opportunity to serve, but to be in pain so much is just not enjoyable.

In order to help my Grandma out, my parents and little sister are moving in with my Grandma. That means a household’s worth of stuff from about 30 years of marriage and 7 children has to go somewhere. There’s no way it’s going to my grandparents. My father suggested that a lot of it was going to be stored in the landfill, but they’re still going to need a storage unit.

In true computer nerd form, I found a nice onlince resource for my parents called Self Storage Directory – The site was easy enough for my parents to navigate and had a pile of storage facilities listed. It’s kind of like Progressive, but for self storage facilities. You get competitive quotes from up to 4 storage places. I was amazed they even had a number of storage sites in the little town I live in.

The site has a bunch of other features which aren’t useful for my parents, but I found quite interesting. Some of those things include: moving, packing supplies, mortgages and Real Estate related services. I personally tried out the mortgage section and liked how easy it was to navigate getting mortgage information.

I ran across a large set of quotes( They are nicely grouped into a lot of categories like Birthday Quotes, Inspirational Quotes, Love Quotes, and just about every quote I think possible.

Here’s an example of one of the birthday quotes:

“I’m sixty years of age. That’s 16 Celsius.” George Carlin

I like the birthday ones because they were so funny.

Here’s an example of a post about mothers.

“God could not be everywhere, and so He made mothers.” -Jewish Proverb

That is an oldy, but a goody. Quotes have an interesting affect on you when you read them. I prescribe one quote a day to keep the psychiatrist away.
