    We are facing a hard situation. My pregnancy has hit a bump in the road that cannot be overcome. We went in for our 20 week ultrasound to find out how baby was doing and what the gender was. Unfortunately, the answers were "Not good" and "couldn't tell." The kidneys were what they called...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    ~I was more than skeptical about it working but today I called Home Depot customer service. Last month I switched most of our bills to online bill pay. Well, the electronic Home Depot payment didn't go through and I noticed it 4 days before the due date. So I wrote a paper check and mailed it...

    ...just wanted to kind of vent. We've been TTC for maybe 2 months. I had my IUD out in Jan. A few weeks later had my first real period. I wrote it on the calendar and figured March 30th would be 28 days. So march 30th - nothing. On March 31st, I take a test - negative. On April 2nd I take...

  6. Third Agers
    We're in our mid-thirties, debating about having children. Is there anyone here who might share their "been there, done that" experiences of starting the children path late in life? We got married about 5 years ago (I remember the month and day but not the year, lol) with no prior marriages or...

    There's so much talk going around about how important it is to fill out the 2010 Census Forms, but I haven't received mine yet!! Many of my coworkers say, that they've mailed theirs in already. I'm wondering who I should call so I don't miss the deadline. Do you think I should give it more...

  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Got my Citicard statement in the mail yesterday. I pay it off every month so this really does not concern me but right there in bold letters it states, "if minimum payment is not received by 11/15 your interest rate will be increased to 29.99%" :eek: That's absolutely CRIMINAL in my mind.

  17. Christmas
    It seems people decorate for Christmas sooner and sooner each year. Maybe they sync their decorating with Walmart? I, frankly, get sick of the stuff after a couple weeks. I like to wait until about 10 days before Christmas to start. Anyone else? When I was a kid we didn't decorate until...
