    I went to get a snack and relax with a computer game for 45 minutes until DH gets home, and the entire bag of ruffles is gone. DH admits he ate them. :angry: It's not the first time. He has his own snacks. He has diabetes and cholesterol problems and a history of heart problems in the family...
  2. Question and Answer
    Who has straighttalk? Did you have problems getting it activated? I purchased straighttalk from WM yesterday, went to have my phone # transferred (from US Cellular) and now I have no service from either provider. How long will it take to get it activated? I went back to WM and spoke to...

    A few months ago I did a lot of decluttering and donated quite a bit to GW. Among the items were some odd serving dishes. One in particular was a gold plate like platter. I never use gold (prefer silver) so I donated the gold one. Wouldn't you know my DDIL asked to borrow this gold platter for a...

    Why is it so hard to find decent gifts for pre-teen girls? I've got 3 nieces 8-13 to shop for this year and it seems like an exercise in frustration. Everything is either aimed at babies, or it's far above their maturity level. Especially the beauty products. Now, I don't think girls this age...

    I ordered a textbook online last Friday because the bookstore at the college has no used ones in this particular book and the new ones are outrageously priced. The site I ordered from guarantees to buy it back so it will only end up costing me ~$50 instead of $150-$200. I paid for UPS two day...

    So here is the story: Little Miss was sent upstair to take her shower. A bit later I head up to see how it was going. She was on her bed,Pj's on, and reading a book. I ask "You already took your shower?" Little Miss replies "yes" Thinking that couldn't be true, I ask "Are you sure?" then...

    So I have been reading the flyer and buyers guides, etc. to research my next, unavoidable computer purchase. I know I want a desk top. I know I want 4GB hard drive and 500 thingies of memory... Thingies...uh-oh... I keep reading this stuff, and realizing more and more, that if it said "plug...

    I have one of those "switches itself off" kettles, and it has a short cord that plugs into the kettle at one end and the electrical socket at the other. On the end where it plugs into the kettle, everytime I use it, I have to jiggle it and wiggle it to get it to switch on, and then when I let...

    So sorry to do this but please let me rant for just a bit... Tonight I went to may father's house where my ds26 is also living (2 extremely stubborn men!!)...so I arrived with a dvd that I had talked to my dad about (related to his growing up years in Liverpool, UK) and some food goodies for...

    Ok, I'm having a giant hissy-fitt!!! I am SO frustrated!! My foot injury that I thought was just a little sprain (about 2 weeks ago) hasn't gotten better...actually gotten worse. Yeah, was still walking on it, but not even remotely as much as normal and had been icing frequently. So...

    We went to visit Joe's mom this past weekend ... Joe had made some leather sales which made it possible. While we were there Joe realized his mama was eating off Balonie and cheese Sandwiches for 100% of her diet w/ tea or water to drink. :doh2: She has a heart condition and a bad back, so this...

    I had gone to the grocery store earlier tonight... I think there was an echo in the store because the shelves were empty. I only needed carrots and apples for DD's lunches this week. (Pantry Challenge this month). I've lived in MA my entire life. The word snow has become as commonplace as...

    I have a Whirlpool Duet. Apparently, my homemade soap isn't desolving and it coated the back of the tub. It broke the rear support. And now, it is going to cost me almost $500 to repair. I am so bummed. All this money I thought I was saving and it cost me money. **insert lots of cuss...
  16. Pets
    Well...all 4 pets are vaccinated and have their pet passports to go to Germany. I'm happy about that....but unhappy with paying $330 for it. (sigh) But they're worth it. I'm just glad I caught the Army vet that comes every few months instead of paying Sterling for it ($2.07 buys 1 pound...

    I'm in charge of scheduling conferences... One of the other ladies scheduled one for me and conferred with the boss at that time (because it would make things "back to back" in the meeting room and we usually allow a 1/2 hour buffer). I just got yelled at because there are 2 meetings...
