  1. Thank you for all the words of wisdom. Sounds to me like I pretty much have done everything but call the companies myself. I am going to work on that today and tomorrow. Another question, some cards are in only one name or the other. I would need a power of attorney for dh in order for me to speak on his behalf correct?
  2. With everything that has happened to us we have racked up the debt. We had some before that but we were fine and we were making more than the minimum payments. However we are now maxed and can't afford to make all the payments at once. I really, really want to just pay these off and not declare bankruptcy or go through of those agencies that get your payments and interest lowered or whatnot and then you pay them and they in turn pay the credit card companies. I don't remember what they are called. I have looked at Dave Ramsey's baby steps and don't mind trying it but with the curre
  3. I want something sweet. So I was thinking cinnamon buns with extra icing. However I wanted something a little different too. How does this sound? Adding some toasted hazelnuts (finely chopped) and chocolate to the cinnamon filling and adding some almond paste to the icing? Or vice versa? I am drooling but what do you think?
  4. I sent a letter to my landlord to his PO Box. It is return receipt. I can track it and have been and it hasn't been picked up yet. How long will it stay there until it is returned to me or will it be returned to me? With him being as much as a slacker as he is I am thinking he may not even try to pick up his mail until around rent time but I am not sure. I Can't predict as all what he will do. With all the trouble we are having in this place we haven't heard from him in over 2 weeks. I digress. So how long will to post office keep it there? I couldn't find the info online.
  5. I need one for ds11. He isn't on level so I need it at about a 4-5th grade level. What programs are out there that have baby steps and hand hold a lot? Please? :)
  6. Does anyone know what happens, or what I can do, if my application for food stamps isn't handled (or I haven't heard anything) within the 30 days? I have tried calling but no one calls me back.
  7. Depends on how long he is with them. Usually after a little bit he acts the same with others as with us. :glare: Usually I can deal with it but it has been a horrendous summer and I am just not holding it together like usual. I think dh puts in on me because he has no clue what to do with him. He wants to be able to call it a name and then deal with it that way I guess. Not real sure on that front. It just isn't in his nature to deal with stuff like that. Positive attention... your right, once I am frustrated it is hard to gear up for that. I think when he misbehaves I need to put my
  8. My son (ds5) is being royal pain in the ... He doesn't listen. He complains about everything. Is is my sensory seeker major type A child. If he doesn't get his way he pitches a royal fit. I can't take him anywhere because he won't behave. He destroys things on purpose, he hurts things on purpose (like stepping on your foot when he walks by). I have tried all sorts of discipline. Time-Out, spanking, yelling (obviously that doesn't work) and I can't remember what else. I have tried to remain calm, I have tired patience but that can only last for so long before I blow my stack. Dh doesn't help. H
  9. I am in desperate need of a schedule. I am not afraid of being militant about it. However I just don't know what to do with it. Here is what we have. I need to work 24 hours a week between the hours of 9am and 10pm. Days don't matter I can schedule all 7 days. We have karate on Tues/Thur so the slot from 5:30pm to 9pm is gone on those nights. We have speech/debate on Mondays so the slot from 1:30pm to 6:30pm is gone. How should I schedule work as well as school with this? I am sure I am making a mountain out of a molehill but it just seems to overwhelming! Help?
  10. I can't remember what paper towels they are? Viva? The ones that are really good when they are wet. Kinda like a baby wipe. Suggestions?
  11. I do a combination of what others suggested. Do like WendyK suggested with the pan drippings, then carmelize the onions in another pan, or the same one it would be easier. Then make your roux and finish off with WendyK's instructions with the stock and such. Man that sounds good.
  12. Thank you!! ROFL, I won this debate with dh! :)
  13. How do you make sure you collect the money? MY dh and I are having a debate. :) He thinks law enforcement will get it for us by taking his property or some such thing. I say they won't. :)
  14. What does this mean? I have the opportunity to get my dd into a speech/debate club and they said the speech part is this kind of speech. I am :huh: :confused1: Help?
  15. There has been nothing in writing. We haven't done anything yet but spakle a few holes and clean the place. As for the tasks. It is monumental. I have pictures. It would take us roughly 15 hours (or so) to do all the work that we would be able to do. That is a lot of time. We aren't talking menial tasks here. For those that have renters that do some of the work if needed and only pay for materials is this immediately after they move in, as in things that should have been done before they even moved in? Do the tasks include pressure washing the entire house and overly large deck? Do the
  16. I agree with the others, no and no. When I was growing up My dad, both my grandpas and my uncle all had the same name. We were never confused who we were talking about. Between dh family and my family my kids had three(!) Uncle Justins. We just clarified by saying last names or where they lived. It was just fine. If you ask me they are being nasty and I wouldn't give in even under threat of death! :)
  17. I had this huge long tale all typed out about our landlord and what is going on and then my browser cashes. Story of my life right now. Here is what I took 30 minutes to type in a nutshell. Our landlord is lazy, doesn't care, on drugs or is the most absent minded person I have ever met. He won't finish one thing before going on to another and then expects us to complete it. He has said we can do things around the house and take it out of rent. The problem with that is that the tasks that need to be done, while not hard, are very time consuming. For instance he said we could pre
