Song from a Mom’s Heart

Mommy Moment’s theme is ” Song from a Mom’s Heart”. When RJ was still inside my tummy, I used to play CD’s of Mozart. When she was born, I was still playing the CD and hubby bought CD of lullabies. Then a friend gave us this song book of nursery rhymes and lullabies that has all the lyrics and chords of the songs from the CD that hubby bought. What a coincidence! I forgot the CD’s title for I handed it down to a nephew long time ago but the book title is “Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies” by Pamela Conn Beall and Susan Hagen Nipp.

The CD has 15 charming and gentle lullabies but what I like to sing for RJ the most is Mozart’s Lullaby…

Sleep little one, go to sleep
so peaceful the birds and the sheep.
Quiet are meadow and the trees,
even the buzz of the bees.
The silvery moon beams so bright
down through the window give light
oe’r you the moon beams will creep.
Sleep little one go to sleep,
good night, good night.

This song enchanted RJ as she snuggles down to sleep.

Property Management

Investing in real estate like apartments and condominiums is a very wise decision. However, managing and running a day to day task like dealing with the renters or leasers, keeping up with maintenance, accepting rents, managing the accounts and finances, can be a stressful task especially if you are just new to the business and have no experience in managing rental yourself. 

You should be familiar with fair housing and landlord/tenant laws in the jurisdiction(s) where your property is located and legal process to deal with non-paying tenants. You must also have a reliable means to determine fair market rent and returns on your investment property. Yes, managing a rental property can be a time consuming process.

But do you know that there are companies that can help you manage your properties? Chandler property management will do all the work for you including the acquisition, control, accountability, maintenance, utilization, and disposition. They can also participate in or initiate litigation with tenants, contractors and insurance agencies. Their role is much akin to the role of management in any business.

Most property managers charge a percentage of the monthly rental rate which can range anywhere from 6-10%. This is actually quite nominal when compared to all the services they can provide plus the fact that they can serve as buffer for those landlords desiring to distance themselves from their tenants.

By hiring a property manager, you can focus on your other investment or career by having extra personal time.

Breakfast in Bed

Last Valentine’s Day, we started the day with a breakfast in bed. I prepared pancakes, buttered corn and fried some hotdogs.

Sleepy RJ staring at the food. 

It is taboo to eat in the bedroom. We don’t want ants in our bedroom that is why. But last Valentine’s Day was an exemption. It was our first time in fact to have breakfast in bed (for Couple’s Corner sake, lol!).

Hubby and RJ enjoyed it. I didn’t enjoy it much maybe because I was the one who prepared the breakfast. I guess I will enjoy it more if hubby will surprise me with a breakfast in bed.
