Love Your Home?

Do you ever reach that point where you feel as though you've just lost all the passion that you once had for your home? While it might once have been a place that you loved being in and took a great deal of pride in, it now just fades into the background and you barely even think about it? For a lot of people, the solution to this feeling is simple, move to somewhere new. However, this can be an issue for a bunch of reasons. The first is obviously that moving to a new house, especially if you're a homeowner, can be an incredibly complicated, long, and stressful experience. It also presents the issue that there's a chance that you could just end up doing the same thing at each new home. If you really want to feel more excited by where you live, then there are plenty of things that you can do to your home to help you fall in love with it all over again!

Rearrange the rooms

One of the great things about any home is that you're never tied into one way of arranging it. Sure, the rooms themselves might be fixed in place, but your furniture certainly isn't. (Unless for some strange reason you've glued down all of your chairs!) So why not rearrange things? That way the inside of your home can end up looking completely different without you having to spend any money at all. And the best part? If you don't like it, you can just change it back!

Fix it up

All homes have problems now and then, especially older ones. So why not go through your home and make sure that any problems are properly fixed up. From garage door repair to filling in cracks in the walls to fixing a leaky pipe, being able to deal with the little problems and inconveniences can make your home a much more pleasant place to be overall. Of course, there may be some jobs that need a bit more of a professional touch, and you should make sure not to bite off more than you can chew.  

Change colors

Sometimes the changes that can have the biggest impact don't need to be all that drastic. Sometimes all it takes is something as simple as a change in color scheme to bring your home back to life. Think about the current colors of your home and ask yourself what you could change them to in order to make it more vibrant and exciting. Whether it's something that contrasts with the existing colors, or perhaps a complementary color that you only use in certain places for added emphasis, bringing in new color to your home can do wonders for changing your perception of it.

Of course, there's no guarantee that these things are going to make you feel the same way about your home that you used to, but at the very least it's something to try before starting the long and difficult process of finding somewhere new to live.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
