Progress

So this week I did a serious spring cleaning of the main floor - swept, mopped, scrubbed, dusted, and polished the floors.

And I decided I didn't want to wait for the neighborhood shredding event, and took the five big bins of tax papers [more]

Re: No good deed goes unpunished

Heh. He could come to Omaha!

I had to travel to a part of the big O today I've never strayed into before, even when I was in social work. It's very Detroitesque but I'm sure on a much smaller scale. Lots of empty houses and empty lots, [more]

Re: What do you mean

DH is waiting impatiently to purchase the new household server. I just had a few other major remodeling purchases that are priorities first and I know when he gets it, he's going to build it and play with it for a few weeks, and I really need him to [more]

Re: Are we losing practical life-skills?

If you buy a Dodge, better plan on unloading it before 5 or 6 years when it begins to self destruct.


I have a 98 Durango that still runs great and looks fairly new other than the front bumper has some rust. I think I'm at about [more]

Re: Need Some Ideas About Wires

I'd use something like Velcro ties - so they're rolled and neat, but not as fussy as bags - you can attach a label to the tie probably - they make some or just use something like washi tape. Then you could definitely store them in a box with dividers [more]

Re: Cleaning

You're the only other person I've known who had tiles on the bathroom ceiling.

I'm re-doing a bathroom right now, and part of the plan is to tile the ceiling over the shower - but not the whole ceiling.

Re: Signs of splitting up

My solution when the Chinese Daughters seemed to fail to understand the concept of changing a roll was to leave a note reassuring them that the Surgeon General had assured us all that changing the roll was not fatal.

Then DH explained to [more]

Re: Sunday morning

It started raining/thunderstorms here about 3am. We've been having a mix of thunderstorms, heavy and light rain all day. It's very welcome - we've had an extremely dry winter - it was brutally cold, but hardly any snow*.

Happily Friday and [more]

Re: Oh crap....stuff happens

We have always been do it yourself people.

We replaced both our single garage doors with new metal insulated doors/tracks/openers for about $600 total.

We own a 130yr old house. It's a money pit, but it's also a hobby. It was an [more]

I assure you, if I could, I would bust your dad's face

Well I almost beat you to it back when I was 14, I was planning to kill him - I was standing in a field most every day putting holes inside the 9/10 rings of targets with a .22. [more]

Re: Loving dead commies

I love Red Eye! Gutfeld is hysterical. We TiVo it and then catch a show now & then.

First time I saw Red Eye, I stumbled in about halftime, and I didn't know it was snarky, so I was dumbfounded (did he really just say [more]

Re: Another sheep gets sheared

Well, I'm not going to get into a p!ssing contest over whose parents were worse, but neither am I going to go into excruciating detail as Metal did. I'm not that brave. And I expended all my parent-child energy forgiving them.

Re: Another sheep gets sheared

You had good parents.
I have nothing further to add to that.


Amen.

Some people had what they think were sucky parents but they were just difficult. Others have no doubts what they had.

Happily, I think most [more]

spring fling

This time of year, keep your ears open for neighborhood clean ups and shredding events.

My city does clean up events where you can get rid of lots of bulky oversized things, and this year there will be a shredding truck at the local Walmart [more]

Re: I'm at the end of my queue

Speaking of owls, I saw a big owl, possibly a barn owl, in the neighbor's tree yesterday afternoon being heavily harassed by a bunch of grackles. I was surprised to see it was an owl instead of my usual red tail hawk. I've seen owls once in a while [more]

Re: More on the Detroit Beatdown

Again, it has more to do with dealing with teens that think they are invincible.

Re: asking for a friend

Not an attorny, but I would recommend not doing that. I'd open a new account for my paycheck and get a new credit card in my name only. I'd keep meticulous records of all bills.

I have no experience with divorce, and have never had anyone really close to me live through one, but I think I'd take all our jointly owned savings and immediately pay off all jointly owned debt (except the house assuming that wasn't [more]

Re: More on the Detroit Beatdown

Yeah I assume that it is possible to go from the airport to the city via bus it it'd be a hassle. Not something you'd do on a lark.

I figured as much, but I have discovered with this particular kid, if there is a way for her to [more]
