    My husband and I have been living with his mother since he lost his job in 2007. I am on disability. Earlier this year my MIL had 2 serious falls-landing on her head and it's possible that she's had some small strokes. She has lost periods of time. Her sister's marriage, her parents death, my...

    Well, am just about at my limit of dealing with adults who act like four year olds. Just need to get it off my chest. Just tired of listening to their pity parties and "I am not going to do that" to any type of resolution, or temper tantrums. Sure when you get into your own sorrow it is hard...

    I've had a change of heart about faith and religion since my daugther was born 14 months ago. I was raised in a strict Catholic household, I rebelled all the way. I'm not really interested in rejoining the Catholic church, but I find myself overwhelmed with gratefulness for whatever forces in...

    I guess this is just my week to have to deal with idiotic people...and Momma ain't happy. GGRR. Little background: November 21st...we woke up to a sinkhole in our backyard..called it in to the city. We were "assured" that sinkholes were "top priority" and that it would be taken care of...
  5. Pregnancy
    I am 8 weeks pregnant and have been dealing with nausea for a few weeks now. My doctor has prescribed Zofran and Reglan, but it's a toss up as to if/when they work. Someday, I do get relief but other day I can just forget it. Dh suggested ginger root steeped in hot water, but that didn't work...
  6. Relationships
    I have been married for 10 years. My husband is an absolute sports nut. I don't share his interests. He has season tickets (with a buddy) to his favorite college football team (they suck by the way). Two years ago we went on a family vacation and he agreed to miss one game for the trip- well...

    OMG, is it like horrible this year or what? I have had this allergy since I can remember but it's kicking my butt this season. I had to turn the air back on because the windows open was making it worse. Still no improvement. I feel like I got ran over by a truck, twice. My head feels like a 16...
  8. Frugal Living
    I thought I'd start a thread for those of us who have been there (or are currently there), dealing with feeding a spouse and/or children whose pickiness can often undermine our frugal efforts. I knew I had to start this thread when I stumbled haphazardly upon a great truth today at lunch...

  12. Home Environment
    We are in desperate need of having some windows replaced in our house and asked a friend who is a contractor to give us an estimate. That was in March. We have reminded him a couple of times but still nothing. I know his wife has reminded him a couple of times also. Now here is the tricky...
  13. Home Environment
    Now my kitchen isn't horribly small, but I'm still in mourning for the kitchen I designed in our last home. I'm finding it hard to keep tidy and organized. The counters accumulate clutter, and I just hate it. My kitchen table takes up ALOT of space(8x4). A smaller table isn't an option. I sit...

    How do you all deal with set-backs in your financial plans. I had all my plans set for this year to be debt-free except for the mortgage by sometime this summer. Now I've had three hospital admissions and the medical bills will set my plans back. I am very thankful for insurance and know...

    How do you deal with the pressures of going to the Dentist or Doctor and they want to do this and that to your children and then make you feel if you don't follow their plans you're in last place for mom of the year? Took my kids to the dentist today and my 7 year old has an underbite and the...
