    Things to Consider When Buying a Home

    In this post, I want to share some things I’ve learned from buying two homes. Any home purchase will probably be the most expensive purchase you will ever make and you definitely don’t want to have buyer’s remorse. Hint: I have buyer’s remorse. I realize that everyone is different and what bother’s some, may not bother others. I’m not even going to discuss the subject of conflicts with neighbors. If at all possible, don’t be in a hurry to buy. My wife and I purchased a town home for our first home purchase.

    Body Wash by DreamSideOut

    In 2016, I was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis on my face. One of the things I was told not to do was to wash my face frequently with soap and water.

One of the individuals I discovered is Rick who has the DreamSideOut channel. In…
