  1. Family
    What do you have to say to someone to get them to understand you don't want to know them? It all started with my Brother in law. He is a big fat looser, drug addict, Alcoholic, selfish , car thief. Oh and he has been charged with a million other crimes. I disliked him from day one. He actually...
  2. Financial hardship
    I decided recently to start with the frugal way of living because I got tired of constantly dipping into overdraft in hubby's bank account. After reading up on things and looking over what we were spending our money on, I just about kicked myself! We live on a 1.5 income and for the longest...
  3. Sewing
    Probably not but that is okay!:jack: I have not sewn a thing in a week or so. My poor ds has had the flu, 3 ear infections, and the croup in the last month and he is going into the hospital a week from today for testing to check for epilepsy. He will be there 1-2 days! So I have been...

    Well, the friend who was supposed to fix my dishwasher told me he would be here after 5, and never showed up. I put off errands I could have run to wait for him. Why can't people be considerate? I think being considerate of others is a lost art. Would it have killed him to give me a two...
  5. General Chat
    :thud: So here's the story: :smooch: was never a spendthrift -- generally he's pretty good about being frugal and helping me out. But he and I are both way too impulsive. At any time, we'll both say, "Let's go out to eat" or "Let's go see that movie" or something else. But truth be told, we...

    I have a staff of about 20, all but two are women. We are a hugely diverse group, 1/3 right out of college, about 1/3 in our 30s and the rest are grandmothers, they come from all over the world. Can I tell you that I generally am so on top of them that they don't sneeze without me knowing it...

    Done shopping. Done wrapping. Done done done!! I still have stuff being shipped, but that is already gift wrapped (to keep the snoopers who would open the mail from seeing). Now I can start planning my holiday baking. I've already decided on two kinds of biscotti along with the usual holiday...

    Fish Kid has been running a fever for 4 days. Had her into the doc, but Dr just thought it was viral (no antibiotics). She does well on the alternating Tylenol/Advil schedule, but it hasn't been fun. My in-laws left on Thur, so there's the post-out-of-towner readjustment. And a lot of...

  10. Quilting
    ROFL, my surprise quilt - this is so NOT me I'm calling this quilt "It doesn't matter". I found the pattern in a magazine and told dh I just had to make it. Like most of my quilting, I learnt something in making this and I learnt something about myself as well. It just doesn't...

    Couldn't decided what my title should be lol Is anyone taking Wellbutrin XL (300mg)My Dr put me on this Thursday. It kinda makes me feel more awake and maybe a lil more energy. Most of you know I have thyroid disease and the DR can't seem to get my dosage right and I am wore out all the time. I...
  12. Crockpot
    Hi, We moved the microwave and crockpot into the new house. Hope to have a real sink and counter by the end of the week. I've never used a crockpot before and I don't have any idea where to start. I haven't used a microwave for cooking either, only heating leftovers. Do you have any WoW recipes...
  13. Pets
    I don't need anymore work right now and I know she will dribble on the floor, make messes that will need to be cleaned, cry in the night for the first couple nights but it will be all worth it. To have seen the delight in my kids eyes and to have seen the grins on their faces - well let me...

    Why is it that there is a special day for mother's, father's, grandparents, teachers, secretaries, bosses etc....? What about the rest of us, what are we chopped liver, second class citizens??? I'm not saying that these people don't deserve a special day, they do. I guess I'm just feeling...
  15. Secondhand Shopping
    Oh, sorry, for those who do not speak Oz - the kit is used to belt (reasonably gently) the dents put into vehicles by other vehicles, or trees jumping out at the driver or alligators ramming themselves up the exhaust pipe - you know the sort of stuff. We often call it a "bingle", presumably...

Since Nicole is home and I can leave her in charge of the house and Shane, Dh and I are gonna leave Sunday morning, go have breakfast...

    Ok, recently I realized why I hate looking at my pantry. It's because it's predominitly RED in there :eek: I had a HARD time finding any prodcuts in my pantry that don't have the color red in it. So far ones without the color red are my propel kiwi strawberry, and my S&W flavored peaches and...

  19. Quilting
    Okay I hit a quilting store today and found some beautiful material and of course some fat quarters. I also found that this lady sells top of the line material that I usually pay $17.95 for when I buy a couple metres at a time, but sells it for $9.95 a metre. I quilt using fat quarters, but...
