  1. Could you perhaps create a makeshift cone for the hamster? That way you could apply a soothing ointment/cream, and she also can't further pick or lick her wounds. I'm sorry :(
  2. I suppose it could be teething? Some of his back teeth broke through a few weeks ago. At the moment, he's alternating playing and whining/crying. I gave him some baby gas drops to see if that helped at all.
  3. My sister is at work, but she's waiting on a call back from the peds nurse.
  4. He pooped normally yesterday, but nothing yet today (it's 11AM). He's eating little things. Some cheerios here, some plain pasta there. Nothing like his usual, but enough to get him by. He seems to be drinking normally and has wet diapers, and his eyes aren't sunken. No fever. No one else has any symptoms. We all got a stomach bug about 1 1/2 months ago, but he got over his within 36 hours, so it's not lingering from there either.
  5. My 1-year-old nephew has been feeling icky for the past few days. About four nights ago, he vomited what looked like white paste twice. It was more like spit up than vomit actually. Prior to the episodes, he would toss and turn and whine. He did the same the following night. These past two nights, he hasn't spit up at all, but he still has episodes of tossing, turning, and whining for about 15 minutes or so at night. Also, he did have runny stools, three days ago and two days ago. But only once on both days. We thought it was reflux, due to the consistency of the spit up. Now, he's acting like he's in pain. He doesn't want to be put down, fusses, and is just generally not in a good mood. He's been drinking fluids (not milk, as we didn't want to further upset his stomach) but hasn't really been interested in eating for the past few days. He's eaten a bit here and there, but nothing much. Is this something to ride out, luke a virus? The urgent care near us doesnt see children under 5, and the peds doesn't have an appointment today. Is this ER worthy, or wait and see if it gets worse? Is there something we can do to relieve his pain a bit?
  6. Thanks milovany and Lanny! I think I'll look into FreeTaxUSA
  7. We have one which the entire immediate family knows about, and a few members of extended family as well. We don't really discuss it, and I think for the sake of honoring that person's memory, we won't tell it to future generations. It's something that I wish I didn't know, but it kind of happens that I need to. Now, I do believe this "secret" is public record, though I haven't tried looking. It's not something that would come up unless intentionally looking for it, though.
  8. So it appears that I forgot about myfreetaxes. It's linked to HR Block, and when signed in through their site, it allows me to upgrade to the HR Block Premium package (which includes the 1099 misc and Schedule C) for free. Maybe look into that frugalmamatx?
  9. I've been self-employed for the past few years, and every single time tax season rolls around I have a hard time finding a free online tax software which includes the 1099-misc. I believe last year I used HR Block, and the year prior it was TurboTax. However, every year it changes as to which software offers the free self-employed federal return for married couples within the income threshold. If you're self-employed and filing online, what software are you using? Is it free? Thanks!
  10. Ah, that was it! Thanks! It wasn't a plastic tab, but a switch on the battery compartment. Now he can dance to it, ha!
  11. My 1yo nephew got this toy for Christmas, and he absolutely loves it. We've been wondering thought why it doesn't complete the nursery rhyme songs. Like it'll sing the beginning of the Itsy Bitsy Spider, but then it fades out when it's only about 10 seconds in. It's not a huge deal, but we're just wondering if anyone knows why it does this?
  12. I appreciate the replies. As has been mentioned by a few others, while renters insurance is important, they cannot afford it. I've failed two driving tests (stupid parallel park), which is why we need a vehicle I can practice in before sitting for another test. Once we have the car, I will be able to get my permit again (have to sit for the test again) and then practice in our vehicle (which will be the one used for the test). We don't have any friends nearby who have a vehicle I can practice in and use for the test. We live in a small town with the closest DMV 30 minutes away. Both parents have their licenses, but no vehicle. I've read that, in order to insure a car, one must be on the title and/or registration. As my parents owe the IRS money, I'm wary of having either of them on the title. We may end up buying the vehicle privately, gifting it to my parents (so the IRS wouldn't think they could afford a car but not pay them back), and having them gift it back once either my husband or I have a license. We're confused on all the regulations and legalities involved, so I appreciate the insight.
  13. My parents do not currently have any policies. They rent as well, so they don't hAve home insurance, and they don't have a vehicle, so no car insurance.
  14. I'm in my early 20s, and my husband and I finally have enough saved to purchase a used car. The problem is, neither of us has a license and won't be able to get one until we have a car. My permit expired. Does anyone have experience with purchasing a car without a license? We live above my parents, so we figured we'd put my Dad on the insurance until I get my license and am able to take it over. We don't want to have him purchase the car under his name, because he's worried it might affect his disability benefits and he has a payment plan with the IRS and they'd think it was his money the car was purchased with. So, I know it's possible for an unlicensed individual to be on the car title, but how does this work with insurance? We are in Massachusetts if that helps. Thanks!
  15. Oh, and a quick question - we pay our rent in cash each month. Even though it's family, would it look a bit better to have a paper trail (check or money order) to prove we pay monthly? Or maybe a direct deposit into their bank account each month straight from ours?
