  1. Relationships
    I don't know am I here in the subject or not, but I have a problem, and I would like to ask for advice. The fact is that my parents recently filed for PA divorce online. The procedure may seem ordinary, but my parents are so busy with their worries that they don’t even think about my feelings...

    Hi Frugal Villagers, Can you help me with a relationship difficulty? I find out that money management was a big challenge in my last relationship. The difficulty was to take the time to sit down and plan our budget/spedings together. I easely see the benefits of a well designed budget, but she...
  3. Home Environment
    So I got married last year, and as gifts received a number of items referred to as "family heirlooms" by the givers. I'm going to be honest - I don't want or need any of it. It's lots of silver plate, old glassware (not in especially nice condition), just clutter. Nothing homemade or...

I took my state boards on Tuesday and yesterday I found out that I...

    We are gathering today for a family meeting: parents, sibs and in-laws. We need to make some serious decisions about how to care for my parents in view of their rapidly declining health and ability to make good decisions. Part of the discussion will center on where Mom and Dad should live...

    I have had a daycare child with me for about 2-1/2 years and have not had any problems with this family. The little girl will be starting school in the fall and leaving my care. About half a year ago or so the mother mentioned that she might pull her a couple months early and put her in a...

  16. Financial hardship
    A word of warning to all, don't ever do any kind of business or accept any kind of monetary favors from family, no matter how "good" it seems! My DH and I have had a hard time and were close to losing our house, which we were fine with renting if it came to that. But we had decided to try to...

    I am meeting my stepson for the first time in November. He is nine. My husband bought him a remote control car (a big one) two years ago but we couldn't afford the international shipping. So it's been sitting in a closet still in the box. I mentioned to my husband that I was going to take the...
