  1. Never had the shot. Never tested. But last Christmas, I thought I was going to keel over trying to wrap the Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. And, as usual, my mother-in-law didn't believe I was sick. :wacko:
  2. Thank you all! I'm encouraging 19yo to ask the manager how she would like us to clean it. This is a larger complex and I imagine she has had to deal with this before. BTW, no matter what the manager does, your suggestions will come in handy. 19yo and her boyfriend will be using my machine for awhile. This whole "exploding ink pen" incident could happen in my dryer. It might be 30 years old, but I'm not ready to replace it.
  3. This is what I've seen online, but I have to be honest that I'm nervous about using nail polish remover. If this were my own 30 year old dryer, I probably wouldn't be as hesitant.
  4. Yep, exploded in the dryer while running. The dog? Oh, I totally agree. It was an 18yo super senior. My daughter was dying to move out and get her first apartment. This guy was old enough but still in high school. Soooo immature. The apartment turned into a highschool party hangout. My daughter got the manager involved to force him out, but by then the damage was done. The sadly funny thing? We are landlords too. <shaking my head> And yes, I'm saving her. I know it. She has lost a LOT of money in a very short time (3 1/2 months). She is now living next door in the other half of our duplex so we can help her get back on her feet. I really hope she has learned her lesson. I don't know.
  5. Long story short ... I'm cleaning my 19yo's apartment and there is ink in the dyer. A lot of ink. Please tell me this can be cleaned! This has become one of those nightmare experiences. I talked DH into co-signing for this apartment. One of the roommates brought his dog but rarely took the dog out to go to the bathroom. Carpet is completely being replaced throughout the entire apartment. The dog was only there a month? Two at the most? About a week and a half before they were going to move out, another roommate started a grease fire. Instead of putting a lid on the pan, he tried to run it out of the apartment. He dropped it. It melted part of the kitchen flooring. The kitchen floor will also be replaced.
  6. OMgosh!!! :laugh: Your 20yodd is amazing. Merry Christmas!
  7. Good news! Wishing THE best for you. :grouphug:
  8. Hmm... my experience wasn't stellar last month and I've had a tracfone for years. Good luck!
  9. Congratulations! Soak it all in. :001_tt1:
  10. This guy knows exactly what he's doing. Get an attorney. Now, not later.
  11. Just seeing this ... I'm sorry your son is struggling. :grouphug:
  12. For me the problem is jumping from the mid-70's to 101 F within a day or two. There isn't time to adjust. We don't have AC. We rely on using box fans in the windows to cool down the house at night. But last night, it was still 85 at 9 pm. DH brings his laundry home on the weekends. I put it off yesterday, but I started at 7 am when it was 70 F in the house. It has to be done today.
  13. I just saw this announced on Facebook.
  14. Remedia Publications also has an outlining book for younger students in grades 3-4.
  15. I also thought I should mention that Dr. Wile has finished the series. Science in the Beginning Science in the Ancient World Science in the Scientific Revolution Science in the Age of Reason Science in the Industrial Age
  16. I just found the Berean Builders YouTube channel. There are videos of Dr. Wile doing activities from his elementary science series books. I love that Dr. Wile's books are hands on. Guiding Light An Experiment About Wind This one was so fun! Cloud Formation Surface Tension of Water Inertia and Newton's First Law of Motion Can't wait to do this one. :w00t: Seeing the Difference Between AC and DC
  17. Still thinking of you and hoping for the best! :grouphug:
  18. We were at a church camp with wooden bunks (no mattresses or linens), and they had an infestation. They contacted us 2-3 weeks after we had arrived home. First thing? I cried. I knew we had something because the youngest had bites. So, I washed bedding, took mattresses outside and left them in the sunshine, bagged stuffed animals, etc. We left our sleeping bags in the hot garage and hoped for the best. I checked for new bites. I checked the mattresses regularly for months. Same trip - my in-laws ended up with bed bugs in two of their bedrooms. They sent their comforter to the dry cleaners and put everything else through the laundry/hot dryer. I can't remember what else they did but I know it did not involve hiring anyone professionally. We have encountered bed bugs in a hotel even after we thought we had thoroughly checked the night before. We were headed to FL and left our belongings in the trunk as long as possible. Luckily we never found anymore. We only take in a small bag with necessities into the hotel room and stow it on the metal rack above the hangars. We never store anything on the bedding or floor. Edited to add: I think FIL may have bought a spray and used it on the mattresses. One thing he did that freaked me out but I also appreciated was to bring me a bed bug so I would know what I was looking for. I had never seen one. It was in a sandwich bag and was immediately put into the freezer.
  19. Lizzie, I'm sorry she isn't talking to you. :001_huh:
  20. So happy to read your update. :) Hang in there :grouphug: It's a long road, but we're here for you.
  21. Also checking to see how things are going. Hoping that she'll be able to get the long term care she needs. :grouphug:
  22. Lizzie, I am just seeing this today. How I wish your daughter could feel the love of everyone here! I understand that she just can't right now. Know you aren't alone. We are with you in spirit.
  23. More hugs for you! :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:
