  1. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm outright terrified to look at it. DH is in Edmonton until Wednesday or Thursday, which means he's spending money on gas and lunch and other items without me there. I had him budgeted for $300 to last two weeks, but he spent $140 at Wal-Mart and his commute is at least 40 minutes each way...
  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    Hubby and I are older than many of you here at FV, so our situation is going to be different. But yesterday we took some very important steps. And these are steps that you will probably take and consider somewhere down the road. First, we are retired school teachers who continue to teach...

    As some of you that have read my other posts know I have the world’s most hateful cat. Today he has out done himself. When we first moved here I was having some issues with his attitude and as punishment I would put him in the bathroom. His litter box is in there and I keep food for him there...

    Kiddo is really sick. You know something is wrong when your big strapping 16 year old doesn't want you to leave his side! He has always been a really healthy kid with a high pain tolerance. After a surgery he was raring to go. When younger with double ear infections I only knew it was odd...

    Yesterday I found mouse droppings in my basement. I didn't see any in the laundry room, which is where I keep the food, but I'm scared to look too closely in case I find an actual mouse. Terrified to check my fabric. I just cleaned out my kitchen cupboards, thankfully no evidence there...

    So, I have been contemplating getting on board with the DR plan. We have made the first step by not using credit cards anymore, we actually haven't for approx a couple years. I am in love with the idea of using the debt snowball, and plan to do that as soon as we move into the house we just...

    Hi Folks, I don't know if any of you remember but I've been a member here for a couple years or so, and I've posted in the past about seeing a pulmonologist (lung specialist) for wheezing, breathing trouble, and coughing. Well, I've actually seen 2 different pulmonologists in nearby...

    My dh and I have decided to pull our 2nd grader out of public school on March 18 (end of 9 week period). He has struggled along since kindergarten at about a C level. He gets the material, but is so easily distracted that by the time he pays attention and 'gets it' the class has moved on. He...

    I'm nervous that I might be pregnant again. I miscarried at 9w6days on 10/11/08. We haven't been actively trying but we haven't been "blocking" either. Right now, I am scared that I am pregnant again. I'm not sure why cause I do want another child. I have 3 but only the oldest lives with...
  15. Financial hardship
    First of all, let me explain our situation. I am sure it is not much different than many of you out there. My husband was laid off from his factory job of 24 years back on March 7, 2008. He is receiving the maximum unemployment from the state. I work in a school full time and another part...

    Hubby's second cataract surgery is this Tuesday. They are normally two weeks apart. They moved it up because he can't see to read, watch tv or see the computer (even though his first eye is healing okay so far). The first surgery didn't go well health wise, very high blood pressure during...

  18. Financial hardship
    Everything seems to spinning out of control! Hubby has been laid off from factory since March 7th. No end in sight there. They are scheduled to close for good next spring. Unemployment plus what I make still makes us about $1000 away from making ends meet each month. We have cut back on all...

    Is anybody else afraid of their future? I'm disabled and my check that I've been recieving since I was 47 years old (now 52) only covers the mortgage payment. We even set up our repayment plan with the mortgage company to correspond to my Social Security Disability check because it's the ONLY...
