  1. General Chat
    I'm having trouble with the phrase "I/We did not mean to get her/you in trouble" Isn't the only one that could get someone in trouble the one that did the action that caused the trouble not the one that brought it to light? And if you did something wrong should you expect correction? I have...

    My cat tried to jump on the bed which she always does. This time she didn't make it and fell hard. I just heard her thump. So I went to check on her and she was having problems getting her hind feet working. I went to her and checked her hips and feet. At first she looked hunched and like...
  4. Cast Iron cooking
    Does anyone have trouble cooking with their cast iron on an electric stove? Our elec. stove is old...like from the early '80s. And it's HORRIBLE in general. The only large burner is hit and miss on heating up. The three small burners are too small for most of my cast iron pans. When I do get...

    LOL. . . .this is a new one for me. My daughter just called me up to tell me that my WWE Smackdown "wresting character" on the Wii is not appropriate. She said that the breasts on the character are way too large (I told her that she was jealous) and that the character was showing too much skin...
  6. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    My ex husband and I are still very much a family with our son, there’s just no longer a marriage. When we divorced two years ago, he kept the house, paid me about a 1/3 of my half and refinanced my “payout” in with the new mortgage along with his new Harley. (Obviously he didn’t talk to me...

    So, we have travel-sized Battleship. We play. We make do. We were over at my parents, this past weekend, and DS1 mentioned to my father that he doesn't like all the little pieces of travel Battleship. I'm the only child of two only children who live 5 minutes from my house. They never...

    My MIL lost her job not long before the economy whet downhill. She lives with her SO and he is a tightwad. So, I talked to DH about paying family to keep the dc instead of non-family. My oldest was starting to have problems at the DC they were going to anyway and it was a good time for a...

  11. Home and family challenges
    I am really trying to declutter, yet I also try to reuse or find new uses for things. It is very hard for me to throw something away that might be useful later. I have started setting limits on how many things I can save. For example, I save only a few baggies, pieces of foil, etc. because that...

    I got a call from the school yesterday. DD9 has had some trouble in school in the past. SHe is a really sweet quiet little girl, and last year we were blessed with a wonderful teacher who realized she was having problems. She is so easily distracted it is unbelievable. She was sent for...

    This is just for a chuckle..........but do you think that maybe....just maybe, I might be in trouble with my buttercup squash? This was my first year growing squash and what an education it has been!!! Had no CLUE that they got this big. Yes, that is a peony that it has gone up through. This...

    Today at the grocery store I tried to use the $1 off 2 Kraft natural cheese that was in this past Sundays insert and it didn't work. Now I was in the self-checkout so maybe that made a difference? Anyway, the lady overseeing the machines sent me up to the service desk and the lady there just...

    I set up a 10 gallon aquarium for my 6 yr.old this summer. Then for our anniversary my dh & I got a 30 gallon tank for everyone to enjoy in the dining room. The problem is that is seems to be taking forever to get things right. I keep thinking the fish are doing great and then they die for no...

    Hi all- Lately I'm having trouble letting go of the past. I know I should be living in the moment but I find I'm focusing on past mistakes and events. Especially at night- it's like I cannot find my brain's off button. I am driving myself crazy. Does anyone else ever feel like this? Thanks for...
