  1. https://www.arhaus.com/furniture/living-room-furniture/sectional-sofas/landsbury-145-inch-three-piece-upholstered-right-sectional-in-theater-gunsmoke/ I bought this sectional for a little less at the Arhaus outlet. It is beautiful and comfortable. I think it will last a long time.
  2. Around $5500. After insurance our out-of-pocket cost was around $3000-$3500.
  3. Isis. She was named before the terrorist group was widely known, of course. It is just unfortunate to have that association.
  4. Do you live in Akron? My daughter spilled Gatorade all over the library's copy that I had checked out. Now I have a red, sticky book that I paid lots of money for, but that doesn't spark joy.
  5. Our last buyer did include a letter with her offer. She explained why our house was a good fit for her family. She also said that when she walked into the house she "heard angels sing". This seemed so sappy, almost manipulative. But I recently got to meet her in person and she was still gushing about the house, even 3 years later. So it was all good. We wrote a letter to our seller, but gave it to her after closing. We wanted to communicate our love for the house, but wanted to settle the business stuff first.
  6. Hmmm. I don't have a general positive impression of the USPS. I ship a lot of orders by Priority Mail. I like the reasonable prices, but they do make a LOT of mistakes. Last Christmas they misplaced an entire carton with 50+ orders for over a week! That was the worst. I love UPS. Have had consistently exceptional service with from UPS. And although I ship many orders with FedEx I am largely indifferent to them. I'm not sure why. They are as efficient as UPS. Maybe I've never had friendly, personal service from their delivery drivers?
  7. I have 5 kids ages 6 to 17. Our chore chart works pretty well. It is an elaborate chart, but it rarely changes so the kids don't even need to look at it. I think the most important aspect of our chore chart is that it stays the same for a long period of time, like 6 months to a year. Changing chores every week stresses me out. Checking things off seems stressful and unnecessary. Rewarding them with treats or allowance doesn't work for me. I don't like inspecting things when they are done. But when I stumble across something that hasn't been cleaned properly or a trash can not emptied or

  9. We bought an iComfort by Serta six months ago. It is wonderful! It was crazy expensive, but we love it. Don't be shy about testing out the mattresses. My husband took a 30 minute nap in the middle of the mattress section of the furniture store. :)

  11. :iagree: This is true in my husband's field. His first three job interviews were ones where he was flown in for 3 days, wined and dined, and then didn't get a job offer.
  12. We really enjoy it when there are larger groups of kids or adults at our house. It is a fun, social activity. But my kids rarely use the Kinect at any other time.
  13. My dh pulled the fire alarm just recently because he smelled gas at the university where he works. So everyone had to vacate the building while they checked the situation. That made a lot of people grumpy... but it was the right thing to do.
  14. My biggest baby was 11 lbs 8.5 oz. He was about a week late.
