The Right Replacement Windows

After a couple of failed attempts at picking up replacement windows at auctions, I have finally decided to suck it up and go to a window company to get the right windows for our house.  Sure, I could have made the windows that I bought at the auctions work, but our house would look a lot different than it does today.

Instead of just picking a company out of the phonebook, I decided that I would ask my friends and colleagues as to which company that they would recommend.  Over the course of a couple of weeks, I asked a ton of people, and there were a large number of answers.  But what I did was make a list of their responses and decided that I would go with the most popular one.

So, we will be buying our windows from an Illinois window company that has come highly recommended by most of the people that I have talked to.  I am going to give them a call tomorrow, and hopefully they will be able to help me out.

I wanted to do give something special to my wife for mother’s day – not something dumb like a new spoon.  She is a very good mother to our children, and I think that she deserves a present fitting of a good mother.

What I wanted to do was surprise her with a vacation for the two of us away from the kids for a much needed break – we both work jobs and are parents too.

So, I have been looking online for some sort of travel package that she would enjoy.  She always talks about the time that she went on a cruise so I thought that it could be a good idea.

I was able to book us on a Celebrity Cruises ship for a two week cruise in October.  I know that it is a ways off yet, but once she sees what she will be getting for a present, she will be excited.  I will be too, as I have never gone on a cruise ship before in my life – it will be a first for me.
