Even more difficult to imagine is what it will look like in 40 years when I’m at retirement age (hopefully) and my future children are at the phase of life that I’m in now.

Safely Using a Ladder

December 6th, 2012 - 2:01 PM

Safely Using a Ladder

There are 164,000 emergency room visits each year due to ladder-related injuries, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. When moving (or decorating for Christmas this time of year), it is inevitable that you will need to use a ladder. Maybe you are painting your new home, taking down artwork to pack it up, or installing light fixtures…but what you do on the ladder isn’t nearly as important as safely using the ladder.

Cross Country Movers
I recently bought a new comforter set for my bedroom (exciting, I know). After spending way too much time comparing my options, I found the one I liked best and purchased it.
