    Everything is happening at once for us and I just need to vent it out. Our tax bill is a little less than $10,000. It is just devastating to me and I am having trouble handling the reality of it. I have never owed taxes before. I have been a single mom for 10+ years and have filed head of...

    ~The kids and I were visiting my mother this morning and I came home to a ransacked house. They got our Wii, my laptop, about $60 cash, our 3 Nintendo DS's, three Pokémon games and our two digital cameras. They even broke the baby's ducky bank. I am sick about the newer camera. It had the last...

    As I had posted previously, I had found someone who was going to supply me with wood from a torn down barn. I paid $3,500 for 825 sq ft of wood up front (huge mistake, but their references checked out.) Well, this guy and his partner had a falling out, their business is dissolving and both are...

    We moved from NY to AL a couple of months ago. We were unable to bring our two dogs with us, we were trying to find new homes for them.

    So today I got a notice(4 weeks later) that my December rent payment was not received. I have it sent to go out on the 16th of every month for the following months payment, so the payment sent 11-16 was lost in the mail. The money is auto withdrawn the day the check is sent by my bank. I checked...

  11. Military Families
    Why does military disability give extra for a non custodial child but will not send money to DHS for child support? I could understand not sending child support if the solder didn't get extra for that child but why give them more for a child they don't support financially?

    I have an on-line friend whom I speak to daily. Yesterday I said something that she misunderstood the context of which it was meant to be taken. We joke frequently and that's somewhat the nature of our relationship. I sent her an apology and an explanation. She didn't respond, and yes I know...

    I get a kick out of 'funny' commercials and ads designed to make women think they should be angry if they get an appliance or household gift from their SO/DH. I'm not sure how I feel about it---I have been with DH 35 years, 30 married. Sometimes he has given me jewelry, perfume, clothing...
