    I need some advice to direct toward my DH. In June 2010, he purchased am 04 pickup truck(which he "needed" for work). The payments on it are $360 a month and are totally killing our budget.

    Another day, another attitude, another cross word........ I have come to the conclusion that I will have a peaceful ride to and from school when the oldest starts driving and I can stay at home. 6 months to go. But having a peaceful home is totally different. I volunteered at church this...

    Last month, I had to pay $1200 to have my husbands car fixed. It was a big job and he couldn't do it. This month, my transmission went. It is a 1991 Ford Windstar. I had taken over a lease in 92 and bought it when the lease was up. At that time, I took out an extended warranty which is good...

    Any ideas on how to cut back on radiation cold? My kitchen door is FREEZING. I'm putting blankets over the north windows(they haven't been replaced and are cold and drafty) but the backdoor is horribly cold. I can't seal it off as we have a pooch that needs access to do her biziness out there...
  11. Pumpkin
    Okay the killing part's an inside joke. But does anyone else clean and cook a fresh pumpkin instead of buying canned? I do it every year in October, mash it up and freeze it in 1 and 2 cup bags. I haven't used canned pumpkin in years. Fresh doesn't look or taste the same as canned, but after...

    We've had serious frost the last two nights and I'm mourning the loss of my morning glories and giant coreopsis. At least I think it was coreopsis --- it grew over 8 feet tall which I had never never seen before. And I didn't recognize the leaves of the plants, but the flowers sure looked like...

    Even 2 Excedrin didn't help. I'm chugging water in case it's because I'm dehydrated. What do you do for headaches?

    Who are they going to vote out on BB5 and what is going to be the reactions of the houseguests when the Natalie/Adria twist is revealed??? Enquiring Minds want to know (or minds that lead very boring lives and the highlights of their week are BB5 and TAR).:toothy:

    My father is in Ohio for the week, and my mother went to see a friend of hers at the shore overnight. So, they asked me to come over and let out the dog last night and this morning. Scooby is exploring the woods behind my parents house right now and is taking his time. I certainly don't mind...
